  • Shelby has four nonrelated fires in one night

    There must have been something in the water Tuesday night, with four fires – three of them structure fires – from one end of Shelby County to the other, a night that ended with one firefighter breaking his leg.

    The blazes were all non-related, although one family did get displaced, fire officials said, and Milton Peyton, a firefighter with the East 60 Fire Department, broke his leg while working to extinguish a fire on Benson Pike.

  • Collins bats go cold at Ballard

    In its second consecutive game in freezing temperatures, it was the Collins baseball team’s bats that went cold on Wednesday night at Ballard.

    The Titans (2-2) mustered just three hits in the loss, and missed out on several scoring opportunities against the Bruins (2-0).

    “I thought we played a little better than we did against Trinity,” Titans coach Mike Hammond said. “We’ve got three starters out, we’re a little shorthanded and had to start two sophomores and two freshmen tonight.”

  • No matter outcome, Titans are ready for Rupp

    By the time you read this, you will have already heard the outcome of Collins’ Sweet 16 matchup with Elliott County.

    But I just wanted to give my two cents on the Titans remarkable resurgence this season.

    Coming into the year, I had no idea what to expect from Collins’ basketball program. Like every other newcomer to Kentucky, I never fully understood the die-hard hoops fandom that comes with living in the Bluegrass State.

    I soon found out what the hype was all about.

  • Best friends to the end

    “We are literally heartbroken,” said J.P. Seppenfield. “He was only seven years old, and he got lymphoma. The vet looked at us, and said, ‘If you were a billionaire, you couldn’t save him.’”

    Seppenfield, his wife Frieda, daughter Morgan and son Jonathan couldn’t save Woodford, their cherished Australian Shepherd, so they set out to make his last week of life as comfortable as they could. They wanted desperately to give him back just a small fraction of the joy he had brought into their lives.

  • Annual Women’s Wellness Affair is Monday

    Jewish Hospital Shelbyville’s annual Women’s Health Fair is coming up on March 20 and tickets are yet again in hot demand, organizers say.

  • Shelby County Horse Show has new manager

    After more than two decades of managing the Shelby County Fair Horse Show, R.H. Bennett has stepped down, citing other commitments.

    “I'm the manager of the Shelbyville Horse Show, and I have stepped down from managing that,” he said. “I've got a conflict with other stuff going on. I've done it for the past twenty years or so.”

  • Collins set to take on Elliott County

    When the Collins boys’ basketball team takes the floor tomorrow night in the opening rounds of the KHSAA Sweet 16 State Tournament, it will primarily be focused on shutting down Elliott County’s backcourt, which features the team’s three primary scoring threats.

    The Lions sport a trifecta of scorers at the guard spots in Korbin Spencer, Chase Porter and Tanner Dickinson. The Lions run a relatively small lineup in its starters, something the Titans should be able to take advantage of with size in the paint.
