  • WHAT WE THINK: Season's first snow is no match

    It took almost three more months than last winter, but we finally got our first snow of the season over the weekend.

    And while roads in other counties struggled, Interstate 64 and the roads around Shelby County appeared clear and easy to navigate.

    The same could be said for Monday’s short but impressive snow shower.

    For that we commend our city, county and state road crews for their long hours, preparation and commitment to our safety.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Our goals for 2016

    Having looked back at our successful 2015, it’s time to look forward to 2016 and how we want to see our community continue to grow and take its shape for the future.
