  • MY WORD: Continue the commitment to the state pension programs

    Recently, a Facebook group commemorated the life of my high school homeroom teacher. She welcomed groups of teenagers for years at SCHS.

    I remember going to her when I had clothing that was dysfunctional and needed safety pins or a needle and thread. She often baked cookies for her homeroom and always had a smile. The comments beneath the obituary came from generations of people who had warm thoughts and sincere empathy for her family.

    On Flag Day, June 14, 1949, lovely Susanne de Charette and I were married. I adopted her little daughter, Michele Solange Marshall, not yet three. Susanne’s first husband, Charles (Chunky) Marshall, was the son of Judge C. C. Marshall, the longest serving of all Shelby County, Kentucky Circuit Court Judges (1907-1943), a total of 36 years.

  • Titans decimate Franklin County

    Collins moved to 2-0 in the 30th District and grabbed the first-place spot in district play with a 45-7 deconstruction of Franklin County’s high-flying offense on Friday night.

    Leading the way defensively was Titans’ cornerback Sicari Toole, who picked off a pair of passes including one for an 85-yard touchdown that gave Collins a 14-0 lead early on in the first quarter and set the tone for the rest of the game.

  • Collins wins big on senior night

    The Collins girls’ soccer team sent its departing seniors off with a big win both on the scoreboard and over a quality opponent on Monday night.

    The Titans (9-2-1) tallied 11 goals in its blowout of a visiting Ballard (6-7-1) team, while allowing just two of its own to pick up the victory on senior night.

  • Rockets fall to Collegiate

    Despite being senior night for Shelby County girls’ soccer, the Rockets could not come up with enough offense to get past visiting Louisville Collegiate Monday.

    Behind two goals from Amazons’ sophomore Giona Combs and an additional score from senior Elle Summerfield, Collegiate (5-9-1) handed SCHS the 3-0 loss.

    Even with the lopsided final score, Shelby (1-13) was strong defensively, and limited the Amazons to just one goal in the first half and keeping the game within striking distance.

    The sport of professional boxing is headed back to Shelby County and will take place this Friday.

  • Titans face off with Franklin County tonight

    Collins will look to keep Franklin County in its holding pattern tonight, as the Flyers have alternated wins and losses in each game of the season.

    After defeating Shelby County 30-3 last week, Collins (4-2) will try to hand Franklin (3-2) its third loss of the year, and help the Titans move to 2-0 in district play to get a jump on sewing up the top seed in the 30th District.

    The Titans will face a very similar team at home, as the Flyers boast a mobile quarterback, a strong rushing attack and an opportunistic defense that forces turnovers in bunches.
