  • Cookies are as much a part of the Christmas season as the turkey is to a holiday feast.

    A warm cookie fresh from the oven, baked in a kitchen fragrant with its scent, puts the icing on the holiday experience.

    Whether your favorite is as traditional as the ever-popular chocolate chip, as old fashioned as a molasses cookie, or even an old stand-by like the oatmeal cookie, cookies are the delight of children and adults alike.

    They add a bit of cheer to holiday gatherings and are a festive touch, whether enjoyed at the office or just around the house.

  • Many people look forward to Thanksgiving not only as an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, but also as a time to kick off the holiday season with huge comfort food-filled meals and decadent desserts.

  • With the anticipation of costumes, parties, tricks and treats building in their hearts, kids across the nation are counting down the days until Halloween on Monday.  But kids – and kids at heart – in Shelby County don’t have to wait another five days for the fun to start.  Some Halloween related activities and events have already kicked off the holiday in the region and many are offered tonight and throughout the week leading up to the grand finale of Trick-or-Treating across the county on October 31.

  • Sue and Tommy Newton of Waddy have recently stepped down from a very special calling — and they did it in a big way.

  • Norma Bailey is celebrating more than her birthday today – she’s celebrating life. 

    Two years after having a double mastectomy, she has bounced back stronger than ever, but says she couldn’t have done it without her awesome support system of her husband and six kids, four of which are adopted.  She knew something was wrong in the spring of 2014, she said, when she felt a burning pain in her chest that wouldn’t go away, and when she went to have it checked out, she got the news that every women fear: breast cancer.
