  • A favorite of falconers, the...

    This bird is one of the most beautiful and most interesting species of the hawk family.

    Its hunting technique is so very unique from other hawks in that the Harris’s Hawk hunts in groups or packs, similar to wolves. This method allows them to bring down prey as large as jackrabbits.

    This 20-inch hawk has a 42-inch wide wingspan and there have been several sightings in Kentucky.

  • Rockets make big plays to beat...

    It was Kyler Dugle’s kind of game.

    An old school rivalry game where you had to scramble and fight on every possession, one that came down to the final seconds as Shelby County beat Anderson County 75-73 Thursday in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County.

    “It was a great game,” Dugle said. “It was fun to play in. We knew it was going to be crazy in this small gym with all the people in here and the rivalry.”

  • Titans hold off Rockets to win...

    In the end it went right down to the wire Saturday, as Collins held off Shelby County 56-55 in the boys’ 30thDistrict Tournament championship game.

    After Shelby County watched Michael Ewing’s shot rim-out at the buzzer, Collins was left with a title and a hard-fought win.

  • Rockets snap Anderson's...

    After six long years of frustration, and sometimes heartbreaking losses, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Friday broke Anderson County’s hold on the 30thDistrict championship with a 48-38 win.

    “It’s definitely been a long time coming and it feels great now that we have won it,” Shelby County senior guard Jordan Holt said. “It makes you feel like all the work we put in, in practice, all the work we did in the summer has paid off.”

  • Rarely seen Painted Bunting is a...

    The Painted Bunting is certainly one of the most beautiful birds in North America.

    The adult male is blue, green and red, however lighting and foliage can obscure the bright colors and patterns as it has in my photograph. It also appears that the male carries this beautiful plumage, all year long.

    The adult female is a bright green, which also sets her apart. This bird is 5-and-a-half inches long and has an 8-and-three-quarters inch wingspan.

  • Collins headed to state swim meet

    A quartet of Collins High School seniors will compete in individual events and four relay teams from the school will compete in the Kentucky State High School Swim Meet at the University of Louisville Aquatics Center today and tomorrow.

    Swimmers will compete in two sessions at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. today and Saturday.

  • Shelby hoping to take title back

    Will recent history hold or can the Shelby County High School girls’ basketball team break Anderson County’s stranglehold on the 30th District basketball title at Spencer County tonight?

    Anderson has dominated the district and the region the past four seasons, but they aren’t the same squad that advanced in the Sweet 16 the past few years.

    The Bearcats split with Shelby County this season, and advanced to the finals with a hard fought win over an upset-minded Collins team while top-seeded Shelby cruised in a win over Spencer County.

  • Anderson comes back to beat...

    A key two-minute turnaround for Anderson County left the Collins High School girls’ basketball team without an answer Tuesday as Anderson took a 58-44 win in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County High School.

    An upset-minded Collins team led through much of the game before Anderson County’s Kaci Curren sparked the Bearcats to their first lead of the game with just over three minutes left in the third quarter.

  • Kidwell keys win over Spencer

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team prides themselves on their balance, but senior guard Brent Kidwell tipped the scales in the Titans’ favor Wednesday sparking a second half comeback as Collins beat Spencer County 48-43 in the first round of the 30th district tourney.

    Kidwell led Collins with xx points including scoring seven straight points during one run to allow the Titans to avoid the upset.
