  • Rockets could pick up a win

    Bullitt East has to be kicking itself.

    After defeating Shelby County 56-31 last Friday night for its first win of the season, the Chargers may have to forfeit the game.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association charged yesterday that Bullitt East kicker Christian Foster had not participated in enough practices to be eligible to play in her first game.

    The violation was self-reported according to Bullitt East athletic director Troy Barr.

  • Titans reel off 2 straight

    The Collins volleyball team has taken its last two opponents to the woodshed in a pair of straight set victories.

    The most recent came on Wednesday night, when the Titans traveled to Frankfort to take on Western Hills.

    Collins handled the Wolverines with ease, picking up wins of 25-12, 25-10, and 25-17 on its way to sweeping WHHS. Once again the team served at an incredibly high 93 percent rate in the win.

  • Collins faces tough test in Spencer

    Having suffered its first loss of the season last Friday at the hands of Boyle County, Collins will look to get back to winning football this week when it welcomes Spencer County for its district opener.

    The Bears had a rocky start to the 2016 season, falling to Bardstown 29-13 in the season opener.

    But Spencer has rebounded since, winning its next four games over Nelson County, East Jessamine, Bullitt East, and Bullitt Central.

    Spencer County’s strength lies with its running backs, Brandon Leff and Kadin Smith.

  • Banged-up Shelby hosts Franklin

    After losing more than a handful of starters in a loss to Bullitt East last week, the Shelby County Rockets football team could still be missing several players tonight when Franklin County visits the Rockets at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    SCHS coach Todd Shipley said on Monday that chances are good the Rockets (3-2) will be without starters Caleb Morehead and Keshawn Catlett, who both left last Friday’s contest with head injuries.

  • Flyers soar past Collins

    Without leading goal scorer Braelyn Gantt in the lineup, the Collins girls’ soccer team struggled Wednesday night, getting shutout 9-0 at home by Franklin County.

    “Franklin played a great game,” Collins coach Steve Nash said. “We missed on a couple of early opportunities that could have changed the game, which would have allowed us a chance to jump ahead.”

    Collins could not muster much offensive success from the get-go, as the Flyers jumped out to a 5-0 lead before the end of the first half.

  • My Marine Corps Journal 1937-42, Part 16: 1939, On the cusp of World War II

    My last column constituted a diversion from the series based on my Marine Corps Journals. It described the harrowing experiences endured by a young marine who was crammed with other prisoners of war in the hold of a Japanese freighter. Despite this unimaginable stress, he survived and possessed the strength of character to live a full and productive life.

    Now I return to the routine barracks life in the Marine Corps in 1939, on the cusp of World War II.

  • Anglin sentencing postponed

    A sentencing hearing for a former Shelby County Public Schools payroll manager charged with embezzling more than a half million dollars has been moved to October.

    Judge Charles Hickman set Oct. 21 as the new date for Benita Anglin due to her illness.

    Anglin had pleaded guilty to the theft in August, a week before her jury trial, a move that was not connected with any plea agreement. Instead, she made an open plea, in which the person charged pleads guilty to the charges and the judge will make the decision concerning the sentence.
