  • WHAT WE THINK: Horse show brings out the best in Shelby

    It hardly seems like the middle of July, especially with temperatures hovering in the mid-80s this week.

    But here we are, back in school and post Shelbyville Horse Show.

    Last week we talked about how our state legislatures should not try to legislate how or when schools districts start the new year.

    One reason they proposed a later year was for tourism revenue.

    Shelby County Public Schools started this year earlier than it has in the past several years, but our Shelbyville Horse Show continued to thrive.

  • Letters to the Editor: Aug. 2, 2017

    Is there any civility?

    In reference to the Letter to the Editor “Less than civil?” on page A4 of the July 17, 2017 issue of The Sentinel-News.

    That anyone who would dare come to the Shelby County Human Rights Commission meeting unless you agree with our agenda, you are NOT welcome.

    “Our meeting,” as stated, stinks to high heaven of exclusivity. “Our meeting” is for only those who agree with the commission.

  • GUEST EDITORIAL, State Sen. Damon Thayer: Bill could change school dates for 2018-19

    As we turn the page on July 2017, I find myself asking the same question once again, “Is summer over already?”

  • WHAT WE THINK: Senate Bill 50’s best mark leaves decision to local boards

    Smiling students – or at least half awake students – boarded buses and piled out of cars this morning for the first day of school after a long and restful summer break.

    And while it may seem very early to be back in school, we must remember that they’ve been out since well before June 1, and there are three two-week breaks coming this school year – one in October, another in December and again in April.
