    Fairness is the Christian way

     

    In the article about the City Council’s non-action on the proposed Fairness Ordinance, one councilman was quoted as saying, “This is a very Christian community whether you want to recognize that or not.”

    I do recognize that we are a Christian community. In my opinion, our belief in Christian values compels us to support a Fairness Ordinance and is precisely the reason such an ordinance must be enacted.

    Impressed by interns

     

    Dear Editor:

    Time and time again we hear about how the younger generation doesn’t have the same values and goals in life as they use to.  Well, we are here to tell you that we don’t agree at all.

    Fire department says thanks

    The Shelby County Fire Department would like to thank everyone in Shelby County who gave to the 2014 WHAS Crusade for Children. This is a time of year that our firefighters look forward to because we believe so strongly in this cause. Many volunteers join the firefighters in collecting donations, including the Shelby County Ladies Auxiliary, SCFD Junior Firefighters, friends and family of the firefighters and various community organizations.

    Questions redistricting choices

     

    Each year in late August, the Shelby County Public Schools (SCPS) Board of Education produces “The Tax Show.”  This year, the Board has added a new production to its theatrical repertoire, and, on June 26th, I attended what might best be described as the dress rehearsal for “Redistricting, Mathis Style.”

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Our beauty queen’s focus on education

    Last week The Sentinel-News caught up with Shelby County native Marissa Raisor as she continues her whirlwind trip at Miss Hooters International.

    Our story focused on her recent trip to Thailand to help open a new restaurant and her bit part in the Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore movie “Blended” but the one thing that stuck out most to us was Raisor’s commitment to continuing her education.

    “I just finished the semester, so I only have a year left,” she said.

    In support of prayer at public meetings

     

    Ms. Allewalt [My Word, “For the benefit and blessing of the council – Musings on the Prayer Issue,” The Sentinel-News, May 28, 2014] it seems, never experienced a public prayer she liked in public meetings or governmental service meetings.

    Marriage equality not for Gov. to decide

     

    In my opinion, Governor Steve Beshear has no business pursuing the Same Sex Marriage appeal.  It is a personal issue that does not concern or affect anyone except those choosing to be married.

    I’m glad he did not choose my partner in life.  My question to you is “would you want someone else to choose yours”?
