  • Oldham needs to be a better neighbor .....

    Last year, the citizens of Shelby County were approached from a group of people about the possibility of forming an Airport Authority Board to check into the possibility of locating a regional airport in Shelby County. It does not matter if you were for or against it, I believe all can agree it was presented to the people and the citizen's spoke-there was not enough support for such an endeavor.

    Dunbar may have done SCHS girls' basketball coach Sally Zimmerman a favor.

    "It's never acceptable to lose, we're never happy with a loss, but to lose by 30 isn't going to cut it."

    But now, seven weeks after having started Hospice care, she has found that it is helping her fight to stay alive.

    "Our goal is to beat this cancer," she said. "We're not going to give in to it."

  • A Christian nation

    Regarding "Fed up with Revisionist History" in the November 14 issue of the Sentinel-News.

    Whether the inhabitants of Jamestown practiced a perverted life style or not is certainly not relative to my objection to this letter. Men and women have been involved in this since the ancient times as history will tell you. That does not make it right and Christian Biblical scripture calls it an "abomination."
