  • 9-11 is the day we all stood still

    The threads we have woven together in the 10 years since terrorists stole commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and, with help, a field in Pennsylvania form a yarn that stretches across generations.

    We look back, and those of us who saw what happened, saw those Twin Towers pierced by jets, saw them one by one crumble and fall as if they were a child’s toys and not man-made spires, feel that yarn wrap around us with a tension that won’t ever quite ease up, even after days, weeks and years and – now – a decade.

  • EARLIER: Shelby County says no to further input on zoning decision

    A crowd of about 30 showed up at the Stratton Center on Tuesday night to see how county officials would handle a proposed zone change for Kentucky Street.

    But those residents left the Shelby County Fiscal Court meeting without getting a chance to voice their opinions about a proposed zone change that would allow a scrap metal business to locate next to Red Orchard Park on Kentucky Street.

  • 9-11: Heroism shown on Sept. 11 unites Shelby County's emergency workers

    No one has ever forgotten the terrible loss of American life 10 years ago at the hands of terrorists.

    Shelby County Sheriff Mike Armstrong called it one of the worst days in our nation’s history.

    Now, a decade after al-Qaida terrorists killed 3,000 people in four separate attacks in New York City, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania, as the nation prepares to honor its dead on Sunday, many are reflecting upon the changes that terrible day has wrought on our society.

    In Shelby County, the answer is clear.

  • SOUDER: Messages of 9-11 should not be forgotten

    There are some days you don’t forget. Your first kiss. The day you got your driver’s license. Your wedding day. The birth of your child. These days are important personal milestones in our lives, and most of us can remember not just the events, but the feelings and emotions that accompanied them.

    There are some days Americans don’t forget. July 4, 1776. The Alamo (OK, that one isn’t a day, but you get the idea). Pearl Harbor. When John F. Kennedy or Martin Luther King, Jr. were shot. These dates have been burned into our national psyche.
