  • "I can't believe I have my sunglasses on," said Susan Travis, as she opened the ceremony Friday night for the Relay for Life event held at Shelby County High School.

    The rain, that had fallen earlier that day, made the field too wet and campsites were moved to the SCHS back parking lot.

    "We've really been blessed," continued the chair of the Relay for Life committee in Shelby County, as she spoke of the 'can do, won't take no' attitude. "We have to celebrate, remember and fight back," she said about the cancer that people that night were fighting to find a cure.

  • The streets of Bagdad were filled last Saturday as the community celebrated the 16th annual Bagdad Days. While rain and cooler temperatures may have kept some people away on Friday night, the bright sun and cloudless sky helped to ensure a large crowd on Saturday.

    Some of the crowd favorites on Saturday included the community parade, the cornhole tournament, the inflatable games, the mechanical bull and the food.
