  • Spencer County eliminates Collins

    Too many turnovers and not enough scoring doomed Collins girls’ basketball’s chances of advancing to the 30th District Tournament title game on Tuesday night, as the Titans took a tough 47-35 loss to Spencer County in a grind-it-out type of game.

  • Officers to focus on health to serve, protect

     The function of any community’s public safety agency is to protect the members of that community.

    But first and foremost, those officers must care for themselves.

    “The stress of the job is killer.  The amount of the hours that we work is killer. The fact that we don’t get lunch breaks is a killer,” said Nick Fiscante, an officer with the Shelbyville Police Department who also owns a gym in Louisville. “You have to be able to save yourself before you can save anybody else.”
