  • Fiscal Court introduces admin code amendment

     Shelby County Fiscal Court introduced an ordinance that would alter the county’s administrative code at its regular meeting last Tuesday. 

    The change would allow for easier pay alterations for county employees. 

    “This deals with the consumer pricing index,” Judge-Executive Dan Ison said. “It is not a retroactive raise for this court.”

    Ison said the change would instead alter the rules by which the court could administer raises.

  • Churches need to open up to women in leadership

    For years, Ms. Moore spoke to her legion of followers with not a whiff of controversy, but that quickly changed when she published an open letter to men (which you can read at this link: blog.lproof.org/2018/05/a-letter-to-my-brothers.html), especially men in church leadership.
