    The circle means many things.
    You can circle the wagons for safety, and you can pull someone into your circle of friendship. Wedding rings are circles because they have no beginning and no end, going on forever.

  • Chapter 1: A wagon load of surprises

    "Whew! I had no idea pulling the wagon home from the Martins' yard sale would be so exhausting!"

    "Do you want me to help you, Woody?"

    "No thanks, Chloe." I thought it was best if Chloe stayed in the wagon and made sure everything stayed in place. We would have been so upset if we had hit a bump and damaged our purchase. "Anyway, we're almost home. Pulling the wagon wouldn't have been so tough had the yard sale not been so far away."

  • Five players to watch for Shelby County

    Devin Ashton

    The junior has swiftly switched from outside linebacker to defensive end this season. 

    "He took a position change and he's taken ownership of it and he was happy to do it for the team," Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley said.

    So far this season he has 16 tackles (7 solos, 9 assists) and plenty of compliments from the coaches.

    "He’s one of the hardest-working kids on the team," Shipley said.
