    Thanks for sharing the music

    I am writing on behalf of the First Presbyterian Church, members of the music departments of Shelby County schools and for all the students who have received musical instruments through our Musical Instrument Program to express our sincere appreciation for the support The Sentinel-News has provided for the program over the years.

    We began this program in 2003 and on Dec. 12, 2017, we experienced an event which I believe is worth noting – the donation of the 100th instrument.

  • WHAT WE THINK: A Merry Christmas and a bustling New Year

    While shoppers have been scouring Main Street and the outlet mall for the perfect gifts, Shelby County has been scrambling to close the year with a boom.

    Just this month we’ll have discussion of a new proposed distillery along Interstate 64 in Waddy, the Shelby County Board of Education is looking into the purchase of the Jefferson Community and Technical Shelby Campus, and Main Street in Shelbyville is bursting with new opportunities.

    Concerned with pension reform proposal

    I am deeply concerned about the pension reform framework recently made public.

    These proposals challenge the contract rights of members, lower the standard of living of employees now and in retirement, and will worsen the cash-flow crisis in the state employee pension plan.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Trial sparks intrigue, excitement for a 2nd time

    About 80 years ago Shelby County, along with the nation and the world, stopped to watch the court proceedings on Main Street in Shelbyville.

    The Garr brothers were standing trial for the alleged murder of Brig. Gen. Henry Denhardt, and everyone waited to see the verdict of what appeared to be revenge for the alleged murder of the Garr’s sister, Verna.

    And back in the Shelby County Courthouse this weekend, visitors watched the trial unfold again.
