    Body cameras prevent mistreatment

    Dear Editor,

    The massive public reaction to the tragic deaths of three black teens at the hand of white police officers has led to a national call for use of body cameras to record and prevent any future mistreatment of suspects.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Our area police forces

    The holidays have been known to drive a few people crazy and that surely seems to be the case in Shelby County recently.

    Last week, what appeared to be a routine traffic stop turned into a car and foot chase through the east end of Shelbyville. And now, on Monday night, a man drove a car through his home in Simpsonville trying to kill his wife and at the same time endangered a child and a Simpsonville police officer.

  • WHAT WE THINK: A community that gives

    Shelby County never ceases to amaze us.

    Time and time again we see individuals, groups, organizations and businesses step up to meet the unmet needs of our community.

    Per capita, we can’t imagine a more giving, loving and protective county in the country.

    Whether it’s raising money for a homeless shelter, making a home handicap accessible, ensuring a family can afford its medical bills or that the family has a place to stay if their child is sick, Shelby County’s residents look out for their own like no other.

    Residential zoning doesn’t fit with business park

     

    Has the Triple S Planning Commission decided to throw out the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Regulations?!

    They have approved a zoning request to change a portion of Breighton Business Center from X-2 (General Interchange to R-4 (Multifamily Residential)? Does this make sense to anyone?
