  • Edington K’s Collins

     The Shelby County softball team notched its first win of the season and it couldn’t have come in a bigger game.

    Jessica Edington delivered on the mound and at the plate to lead Shelby County to the 3-1 win over rival Collins.

    Edington accounted for all three Shelby County RBIs while throwing a complete game and recording nine strikeouts. She said the win against the rival Titans means a lot with only few opportunities to face them in her high school career.

  • Male blanks Titans

     The Collins baseball team dropped its fourth game in a row, falling 7-0 to Male Tuesday.

    The Bulldogs’ offense was in full force and had an early start scoring four runs in the first inning capped off by a single from Matthew Kirkland bringing home James Masden-Jett. Male would tack on two more runs in the second to take a 6-0 lead.

    The Titans would hold the Bulldogs scoreless for the next three innings, but for extra insurance, Male would score one last time in the sixth to set the final score.

  • Shelby Cooks Tigers

     The Shelby County baseball team recorded its fifth win of the season in dramatic fashion Tuesday.

    After tying the game in the bottom of the sixth, Blake Cook stepped to the plate with two-outs and runners in scoring position. Cook delivered a single to left, scoring Marcus Collins and securing the win for the Rockets in walk-off fashion.

    Cook said delivering in big moments is something to be expected playing at this level.

    “It felt awesome,” he said. “It’s something you expect everyday just hopping out of bed.”

  • To keep earth ‘very good,’ changes are needed

    By Dave Charlton 

    God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.

    – Genesis 1:31


    My hometown is in the northern panhandle of West Virginia, on the banks of the Ohio River.

After the contaminants leaked, the school called the Environmental Protection Agency, which tested students for poisoning from Mercury and did not find any evidence of injuries. It then spent Wednesday night cleaning the classroom of Mercury and sent it off for proper and safe disposal.

    “The Epic Hunt for a Lost World War II Aircraft Carrier,” by Ed Caesar that appeared in the New York Times Magazine of March 13, 2019 aroused my interest. It described the search at the bottom of the Coral Sea for the sunken U.S.S. Wasp (CV-7), in which I had served during World War II before her sinking.

    After reading Mr. Caesar’s fascinating article, I contacted him in England by email and telephone. He expressed considerable interest in my first hand knowledge of the Wasp, and we had a most productive conversation.
