  • 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.

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

  • MY WORD: Celebrate your school board members and their hard work

    Our community is fortunate. We have a public school system filled with incredibly engaged students in grades pre-K through 12 and a team of professional teachers and administrators who strive daily to provide an excellent education to benefit this community for generations to come.

    A vital component of the progress of our district – and thus our community – is the leadership provided by the men and women who make up the Shelby County Board of Education.

  • MY WORD: 5 Counties Friends of NRA attend workshop

    Members of the 5 Counties Friends of NRA recently attended the annual Kentucky Friends of NRA Workshop, and Fund Committee Meeting. Chair Tony Wheatley and Treasurer Larry Mott represented the local Friends of NRA committee.

    At the workshop, the state Friends of NRA recognized many committees for their huge success in 2016. First, they were awarded the Friends of NRA’s “Kentucky Breakout Award” which recognizes those committees that have broken out of their usual efforts by reaching an extraordinary result.
