    VA not quite underfunded

    Breathe Ken, Breathe…

    I wish my good friend Ken Pratt would slow down a bit.

  • MY WORD: National Hospice Month: Attention to a growing demand for care management

    Every day, 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 years old, and up to 85 percent of them are living with at least one serious illness.

    That translates to millions of adults living with chronic diseases that may shorten their life expectancy and dramatically impact their quality of life.

    Without a coordinated care plan, many patients are caught in the revolving door of emergency rooms and doctors’ offices, incurring millions of dollars in unnecessary health care costs, not to mention creating needless stress for both patients and their family caregivers.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Celebration is about more than just lights

    Thousands roamed the street in Shelbyville Saturday, waiting to bask in the glow.

    The city’s annual Celebration of Lights culminated with the pop of the holiday season’s red, green, orange and blue bulbs.

    Downtown Shelbyville is now awash in color and Simpsonville will soon join this weekend, marking Shelby County as one of the first communities in the state to dive head first into the holidays.

    Thanks for first responders’ event

    I would like to thank Shelbyville First Baptist Church for putting on a great program for Shelby County.

    Sept. 8-10 they had a complete program for first responders in Shelby County. This weekend was a fantastic experience not only for first responders but also for all citizens.

  • MY WORD: Continue the commitment to the state pension programs

    Recently, a Facebook group commemorated the life of my high school homeroom teacher. She welcomed groups of teenagers for years at SCHS.

    I remember going to her when I had clothing that was dysfunctional and needed safety pins or a needle and thread. She often baked cookies for her homeroom and always had a smile. The comments beneath the obituary came from generations of people who had warm thoughts and sincere empathy for her family.

    Successful summer reading program

     

    Letter to the Editor

    I would like to thank all of the Shelby County children and youth, along with their parents, grandparents and caregivers, who participated in our “Build a Better World” summer reading program for 2017. We had more than 1,300 children and youth sign up for the summer reading program, with almost 800 completing the program. Well done!
