  • Bearcat roller coaster finishes down at Collins

    SHELBYVILLE -- The Collins and Anderson County baseball teams could spent their entire summers at Kings Island and not have a roller coaster ride like they experienced Tuesday night.

    Collins spotted the visiting Bearcats an early six-run lead, then rallied again to overcome a 5-run deficit before holding on for a wild 13-12 30th District win.

    Whew! You could get tired just trying to say what happened.

  • Researchers seek public’s help in locating barn owl nests

    Wildlife biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources need the public’s help in locating as many barn owl nesting sites as possible, according to a news release.

    The department is conducting a study to gain a deeper understanding of why the species has declined in the state, the release said.

  • Salsa, dips are easy light alternatives

    My favorite thing to keep in the fridge around spring and summer time are dips and salsas. They are full of color, vibrant flavor, light, and perfect for every occasion. They are also incredibly easy to prepare, they can be paired with so many different foods, and they’re the perfect appetizer.
