  • New Year’s resolutions have come a long way since the tradition began with the early Babylonians, when the most popular resolution was to return borrowed farm equipment.

    For decades, in the United States at least, the most-popular resolutions revolve around health, fitness and finances.

    Surprisingly, most people The Sentinel-Newstalked to said they didn’t worry about it.

  • The passing in 2011 of four men who showed their love for Shelby County in a variety of ways – with public service and determined legacies – left significant gaps in the foundation of the community.
