  • WHAT WE THINK: Indiana’s mistake can be our gain

    The state of Indiana is in scramble mode.

    As thousands and thousands of fans descend on Indianapolis for the NCAA Final Four this week, instead of focusing on the Hoosier state’s long love affair with the round ball, they will be greeted by a few thousand more protesters.

    Indiana Gov. Mike Pence has spent the past few days trying to clarify the controversial Religious Freedom Restoration Act that many have said allows discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: The real home to college basketball

    Most pundits will tell you the greatest rivalry in college sports rests on Tobacco Road with Blue Devils and Tar Heels or in deep down south with War Eagles and a Crimson Tide or maybe even a bit farther north between Buckeyes and Wolverines, but those are just the misinformed.

    They haven’t seen the real rivalry in action, they haven’t lived Red and Blue.

    The Universities of Kentucky and Louisville feature a rivalry so deep and so engrained, that it far transcends those others.

  • Thanks Shelby County!

    Eight years ago, almost to the day, I was living at High Point Apartments and starting my new job as Publisher of The Sentinel-News.

    It’s been a good eight-year run.

    My last day is Friday, and my wife and I have decided to head back to Florida where there is family that needs our help. It’s just the right time.

  • WHAT WE THINK: A challenge DEAR to our hearts

    If you happened to see several Cats in hats this week or even just children in large striped top hats, don’t be alarmed.

    Monday marked Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss’s, or Theodor Seuss Geisel as he was less commonly known, birthday.

    To mark the event schools across the country and the county will celebrate all week with green eggs and ham, reading events and, of course, visits from Geisel’s most famous character, Cat in the Hat.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: SCFB Women and their commitment to nourishment

     

    Each year the Shelby County Farm Bureau’s Women’s Committee takes time to raise funds and fill bellies for Farm Bureau Federation’s annual Food Checkout Week.

    But this year these fine ladies went above and beyond.

    The group raised more than $500 to spend on food to fill backpacks for the Shelby County Backpack Project, ensuring that hundreds of children will have food over weekends.

    While they always find a way to donate food and money, the donation for children is one that we believe cannot be beaten.
