    By Dave Charlton

     18 Some men came carrying a paralyzed man on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. 

    19 When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus.

    According to 109 Board Member Kerry Magan, the board is doing structural work to keep the now closed Waddy landfill’s structural integrity under control.

  • ‘Make your own luck’

     The Collins volleyball team will have a new look next season as Jade Burke takes over the squad for 2019.

    Burke, a 1988 graduate of St. Xavier, got into volleyball while attending the University of Kentucky in 1989 when he began playing in an intramural league with his friends.

    In 2005 Burke drew on that experience when he took over his eldest daughter’s second-grade team at St. Patrick’s and his time in the game hasn’t slowed down since.

  • Roger(s) that

     After Sean Pigman took the head coaching position at Whitley County, it left an opening at Collins. And coming off the school’s first trip to the KHSAA girls’ Sweet 16, there are some big shoes to fill.

    But the Titans have found man their man in Jeff Rogers, who has been named the new coach of the Collins girls’ basketball team.

  • ‘Dead is dead (period)’

     The dead period is upon us, for those who don’t know the dead period is a period where coaches may not have any in-person contact with recruits and/or their parents. Players will also not be allowed to visit schools for private workouts. The period lasts from June 25 until July 9 and is effective for players from grades 6-12.

    The period gives a chance for players to have some time for themselves before returning to a hectic athletic schedule.
