Today's Features

  • With sirens piercing the cool, sunny morning, Bagdad Days was under way Saturday. Countless fire trucks and rescue vehicles were ushered in by the fireman honor guard and led the way for horses, antique cars and tractors. Participants threw candy to waiting children in the crowd and even handed out some free flowers to moms as early Mother's Day presents. The parade was just the beginning to the day, as vendors and politicians set up tents to talk, and the grills began to smoke with the scent of hamburgers, hotdogs and steak for lunch.

  • Information was gathered from previous years of The Shelby Sentinel, The Shelby News and The Sentinel-News. You can reach the writer at sharonw@sentinelnews.com.

  • During Any Number Can Die four ingenious murders take place in an island mansion as a pair of elderly detectives set to work on their first case.

    It’s a hilarious take-off on the Who Done It? Mystery plays of the late 1920s, complete with sliding panels, robed figures, the cryptic poem and the ever popular storm.

  • Political newcomer Ray Gunn is running for magistrate in District 4.

    Gunn, a Democrat and Vietnam veteran, is retired from the excavating business after 45 years, the last 30 of which he operated his own business, Ray Gunn Excavating, LLC.

  • Charles Lee Davis III is running for constable in Shelby County’s District 4.

    Davis, a Democrat, is a life-long resident of Shelby County, with a family that dates back five generations in the county.

  • The races are getting a little more urgent, and the candidates are reaching out to the voters.

    Signs are at intersections, and community fund-raisers become the modern-era stumps on which a candidate climbs to make his or her pitch to the voters.

    Take, for instance, a recent pork chop dinner held at the East 60 Fire Department, an event that resembled more a family reunion than a public forum for political candidates.
