    The matter of Sunday alcohol sales in Shelby County is on the table for the first time this year.

    The issue, set for review at Tuesday’s meeting of the Shelby County Fiscal Court, was brought before magistrates four times in 2008, the last time in September. That was the only time that the matter made it to a second reading, but it died because of  a 4-4 tie.

  • They had a dream

    February is noted for the observance of history, most notably pertaining to American presidents and African-American history.

    Of course, Valentine's Day falls smack in the middle of the month, but that is very appropriate. Because that is a holiday reserved for love, and most historians are in love with the past.
