  • 3 places every American should visit

    There are three places every American should visit – and more than once if possible. Write them down, put them on that amorphous and trendy “bucket list,” commit them to memory and take them to the bank.

  • What we think: Sheriff’s office made repairs happen

    We are thankful this week that the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office continued to be vigilant about deadly accidents on Interstate 64 in eastern Shelby County.

    While we have had our eyes focused on the dangerous problem posed by the eastbound ramp at Exit 32, ensuring that the Shelbyville Bypass was completed and myriad other transportation issues, Sheriff Mike Armstrong and Detective Jason Rice were doing what we pay them to do: protecting our citizens.

  • We congratulate: Another bright light in helping others

    Another person in need, another big dollop of support from the citizens of Shelby County: It seems we find these examples every month, when our neighbors step forward with generosity to help one of our own.

    The most recent example was the Save Savannah’s Sight event, coordinated by Shelby County Community Charities, to help raise the money needed for surgery to restore the vision of Savannah Sanders.

  • What we think: All candidates need to stop here

    We were encouraged to see that David Williams, the Republican candidate for governor, came to Shelby County recently and had an early morning roundtable to discuss his platform and answer questions.

    Mr. Williams, the state Senate president, spent an hour talking with familiar faces, explaining his policies in detail and then answering a few harmless questions.

  • We congratulate: Fiscal court’s zoning decision

    Shelby County Fiscal Court did the right thing in rejecting the zone change Midwest Metals had requested near Red Orchard Park.

    We believe that Magistrate Eddie Kingsolver addressed the appropriate issues in his motion to deny the request, citing the fundamental point that it was not in agreement with the county’s long-range plan and that there was no mitigating reason for fiscal court to change that plan.
