  • WHAT WE THINK: Posted garbage rates a nice start

    Bless their hearts, but Shelby County Fiscal Court is trying.
    Those magistrates want to do the right thing and provide garbage service and recycling for you, and even if they couldn’t get together and head off a way to keep your money from being thrown away on a $3.2 million trash mahal, they feel like they have to do something.

  • WE SUPPORT: National Sunshine Week

    Sunday kicked off Sunshine Week, and no that wasn’t a cruel twist of fate played by Mother Nature.

    This Sunshine Week has less to do with the impending first day of Spring – which is Thursday, by the way – and more to do with keeping the sunshine in your life.

    Started by the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors and later adopted by the American Society of news Editors, Sunshine Week is a national initiative to promote the importance of open government and freedom of information.

  • DOYLE: How do you leave all of this?

    The room was filled with some 500 years worth of friendships and maybe 600 more of family years.

    Think about it: I was in a room with people I had known collectively for more than a thousand years.

    Methuselah didn’t live that long, and I know he didn’t have friends that were as loyal or as wonderful as these.

    We were in the living room at Dozen Acres Farm. The sun was shining, and spring seemed possible, if not eternal. We were loving and being loved.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Mall's name must be 'success'

    ere you as surprised as we were late on Friday afternoon when the company building the outlet mall in Simpsonville announced that it would be changing the name of the facility yet again?

    Citing suggestions taken from Kentucky residents, officials of Horizon Group Properties determined that The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass would be a more appropriate mall moniker.

    We really can’t complain about that name, because we always have felt a bit slighted that our county was going to lose ownership so that the mall could connect with Louisville’s brand.
