  • Bulldogs all new, starting with coach

    Coming off a runner-up finish in the KCAA State Tournament last season, the Cornerstone Christian Academy boys’ basketball team has a completely new look.

    First-year coach Darrick Briscoe steps in and has a host of new faces to work with. Eleven new players will suit up for the Bulldogs, which makes Briscoe’s job much more interesting.

    If you believe that statistics don’t lie – and even the most circumspect among us surely do to some extent – then you have to be amazed at the recent report on Shelby County’s efficiency in disposing of DUI cases.

    If you know Shelby County High School sports, then you probably know Austin Crowe.

    During that procedure one-third of his stomach was removed, and along with it went much of his strength.

  • Thanksgiving is tradition of much more than turkey and football

    Thanksgiving is our truest and most intrinsic holiday, with a simple, shared message created from the pioneer spirit and carried forward by loyal generations: to join hands,   share a meal and say thanks for each other and all our blessings.

    The pilgrims and the Native Americans got it right in the first place, and with its position after Halloween and before Christmas, Thanksgiving has been allowed to be wonderfully obscured and its noble mission preserved without the clutter and clatter of c
