  • Win or go home

     Is there a better time of year then playoff basketball? If there is, I don’t know it.

    With both Collins and Shelby County boys and girls’ basketball teams entering district play, the stakes have never been higher, and the presence was more then felt throughout the course of the game.

    In my first district playoff game as a reporter, I drove to Spencer County High School to cover the 30th District matchup between crosstown rivals, Collins and SCHS boys.

    By Jerry Cappel

     I would first like to thank The Sentinel-News for this opportunity to write about faith matters in this paper. My wife and I love The Sentinel. It keeps us connected to our neighbors and neighborhood, and is welcome relief from the constantly challenging and troubling national news and comment.

    My hope is to write a regular column here on matters of faith and life. I also hope that my efforts will produce a genuine exploration and conversation that includes many of you. Otherwise, what good is it?

    Pottery shards

    Pottery shards and flint flakes. You look for them, don’t you? I do. They are like movie tickets for the latest film, the one that’s already been shown. A film that seems to halt the flow of time long enough to look at the product of its passage. What has gone before us is a long, captivating film. And there are theaters everywhere.

  • Titans top Shelby to reach district title game

     Shelby County brought a physical brand of basketball to open the 30th District Tournament Monday against crosstown rival Collins, but the Titans would pull away throughout the second half for the 54-43 win and advance to the district championship game.

    It was the third meeting between the two teams this season, and the closest game of the three.

    The Rockets established a physical presence early and packed their defense inside to take away driving lanes for Collins’ Dayvion McKnight and Marcellus Vail.
