  • WHAT WE THINK: While cities expand tax rates are shrinking

    If it feels like your pockets are starting to fill back up a little, it’s easy to see why.

    As a whole Shelby County is thriving right now, and as Ronald Reagan would say, it’s trickling down.

    Not to say that our economic improvements have started solely at the top and worked their way down, that’s not exactly true.

    While lower gas prices will show you the most immediate gains, we need to look no futher than our own governments for a nice little boost.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: JHS efforts on annual Men’s Health Fair

    More than two hundred likely strong-willed men turned out Saturday to make sure they remained healthy, and for that we thank Jewish Hospital Shelbyville and their co-sponsors and volunteers for their efforts.

    Providing an efficient, free set up for those in the community that either struggle with health care costs or health issues is a noble cause, and one that JHS is uniquely equipped to handle.

    Human Rights Commission needs to be filled

     

    Dear Editor:

     

    On July 17, I filed open records requests with the City of Simpsonville, City of Shelbyville, and Shelby County to ascertain the number of pending applications for membership on the local joint human rights commission. The responses were as follows:

    1. The City of Shelbyville- 2 pending applications.

    2. Shelby County- 16 pending applications.

  • WHAT WE THINK: A win for love and a win for rights

    On Friday the Supreme Court put an end to discussion of marriage in the eyes of the law.

    With a 5-4 ruling, the Court reversed a Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals decision that had upheld same-sex marriage bans in Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan and Tennessee.

    Now, as a nation instead of selected states, we can finally drop this silliness of referring to same-sex marriages and just say marriage.

    We understand why some do not agree with the decision, but for legal reasons we needed to have a change.
