  • Snow forecasts: How deep will it get?

    Longtime Shelby Countians tell the story often and with the time-granted ability to smile and even chuckle:

    They awakened the next morning to 17 inches. That was 16 years ago Saturday.

  • WICHIE: Pepe la Pew wasn’t so far from the real thing

    Remember Pepe la Pew, the cartoon skunk?

    Pepe would follow the lovely black feline Penelope Pussycat, who, in some episodes painted a white stripe on her back to escape dog harassment and in others she accidentally scooted under a newly painted white fence. In any case Pepe was a persistent suitor.

    When the idea of putting a campus for the Jefferson Community and Technical College in Shelby County came along 10 years ago, location was a key issue.

  • MY WORD: Climate issues aren’t as simple as more snow means less ‘warming'

    In every society, on nearly every issue, there are going to be skeptics. There will be critics, cynics and people who just want something to oppose. That’s just how the world works.

    However, just because you oppose something, you disagree with an issue, or you don’t like the people talking about it, that is no reason to deny there’s a problem to begin with.
