  • Coming to believe

    Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity(Step Two, Alcoholics Anoymous, p. 59).

    In the midst of a heroin epidemic in our community, now is the appropriate time for us to take seriously the fact that lives will continue to be lost and families ripped apart until we respond to this chronic, progressive and fatal disease with meaningful recovery.

  • Love, murder and revenge

    Tuesday is the 79th anniversary of an infamous murder case in Shelby County history and one that a Finchville woman has brought back to the forefront of community interest by publishing a book about the incident this summer.

    In her book, Dark Highway, Love, Murder and Revenge in 1930’s Kentucky, Ann DAngelo, who is also an attorney, tells the story of what were actually two murders.

  • Titans rally to top Shelby County, 3-1

    After watching the Rockets dominate play and the scoreboard on the way to a 1-0 first half lead Wednesday, the Titans flipped the script in the second half to secure a 3-1 victory in the rivalry game.

    Despite being held scoreless in the opening half of play, Collins started seeing openings in the defense before the horn signaled for halftime and the Titans used that as motivation.

  • Oldham halts Titans’ 7-match win streak

    The Collins volleyball team’s seven-match win streak finally came to an end Wednesday against visiting Oldham County.

    “The speed of tonight’s match gave us struggles in several areas,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “Our serving was below our season average at eighty-five percent, and our serve-receive got roughed up with nine errors combined.”

    Blair Nethery and Julia Belcher led the team with four kills apiece as the Colonels swept the Titans in straight sets by scores of 25-21, 25-22, and 25-13.

  • Rockets look to make it 4 straight

    Following its third consecutive victory, the Shelby County High School football team will look to extend its streak to against a squad that has yet to see a win in 2016.

    Bullitt East has had a rough start to its campaign, going 0-4 against Eastern, Collins, Central Hardin, and Spencer County.

    Two out of the four losses this season have come by four points or less, with the Chargers averaging 37 points per game at this point in the year.

  • Titans get back to work at Boyle Co.

    For the first time in several weeks Collins football fans weren’t sitting on the edge of their seat, holding their collective breath late last Friday night, of course that was because the Titans were on a bye week.

    The comeback kids – who have won their last two games on their last possession – used last week to get back to basics and get ready for perennial power Boyle County tonight.
