  • Collins will take on powerful...

    Just a week after placing themselves right back in the thick of the district hunt with a 23-0 upset of No. 4-ranked Franklin County, the Collins High School football team will take another jump in competition Friday with a road game at 6A power Central Hardin.

    Like Collins, the Bruins are 3-3 this year with the three losses coming to three of the best teams in the state.

    Entering the mid-point of the season the Shelby County Rockets and North Oldham Mustangs are coming into tonight’s game at North Oldham on the opposite ends of their preseason expectations, but both desperately need a win to solidify their spots in a very tough district.

    The Brown Pelican is an Endangered Species and one of two pelican species in the United States.

  • Collins hosting Franklin County

    From one extreme to the other the one constant for the Collins High School football team is they will face another powerhouse program tonight when Franklin County comes to town for the Titans’ Homecoming game.

    “We are excited about this game” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “We understand how big a game this is for our program and know we are going to have to play well. I like that our kids are getting to play in these big games and the hope is that we will rise to the challenge of playing another good football team.”

  • Jets enjoy reunion

    The tales probably got a little taller and the athletic exploits a little grander but when the Shelbyville Jets fastpitch softball team got together last weekend for a reunion, the sense of friendship and family that always personified the team stayed at the forefront.

    The reunion had 17 former team members and more than 50 family members of players show up to reminisce and renew old friendships.

  • Shelby girls take second golf...

    Battling the weather and the competition the Shelby County High School girls’ team took second in the Region V tournament Tuesday at Weissinger Hills and is headed back to the state tourney in Bowling Green.

    The Rockets posted a team score of 341 behind champion Sacred Heart with a 317. Manual was third with a score of 359 followed by Collins with a score of 365.

    St. X took the team title with 283 points ahead of second place Ballard with 297 points. Both teams will advance to the state meet. The Tigers also boasted the individual champion in Billy Basham who fired a four-under-par 68 to take the regional crown.

  • Collins falls to Spencer County...


    It wasn’t quite in the blink of an eye but fortune turned for the Collins High School football team quickly Friday and badly in a 35-14 road loss to Spencer County.

    The Titans saw Spencer County score three times in 87 seconds with just over six minutes left in the game to break open what had been a defensive struggle on a rainy night.

    In a game that had a little bit of everything and plenty of drama the Shelby County Rockets suffered their first loss of the year, 31-28, to Franklin County Friday in the district opener for both teams.

  • Herring Gull: Not your average...

    The Herring Gull is 25 inches long with a wingspan that is 58 inches wide and weighs 2.5 pounds and is a fairly common winter resident around the Falls of the Ohio in Jefferson County, as well as the lake region of western Kentucky.

    I also saw one that was in a rather large flock of migrating Ring-billed Gulls in Shelby County in March of 2014.

    They generally appear in our commonwealth by early October and are gone by mid-May.
