  • WHAT WE THINK: Peaceful gathering focuses on kindness, respect for all

    On Friday night several members of our community gathered in front of the old Shelby County Courthouse to have a candlelight vigil.

    While the topic – racism in America and recent issues of officers with unarmed young black men – was certainly on point and relevant, it’s not what we would like to focus on.

    It was the way the vigil was handled, to us, that is the most important.

    A group of like-minded individuals gathered to express their opinion of injustice on a national topic that has gripped the TV news cycle for months now.

  • WE CONGRATULATE: Karas continues her national ascent

    It was a little more than one month ago that we congratulated Gabby Karas for her fourth consecutive cross country state title.

    The Collins sophomore burst on to the scene as a seventh-grader with stamina and will power well beyond her years. And now she’s showing the rest of the country what we have come to expect from what may be the most decorated athlete to emerge from Shelby County.

    After placing 25th in 2013, Karas was 9th Saturday at the Foot Locker Cross Country National Championship in San Diego.

  • WHAT WE THINK: A community that gives

    Shelby County never ceases to amaze us.

    Time and time again we see individuals, groups, organizations and businesses step up to meet the unmet needs of our community.

    Per capita, we can’t imagine a more giving, loving and protective county in the country.

    Whether it’s raising money for a homeless shelter, making a home handicap accessible, ensuring a family can afford its medical bills or that the family has a place to stay if their child is sick, Shelby County’s residents look out for their own like no other.
