Statement on closing of County Courthouse

President George H.W. Bush was a true gentleman, whose life was devoted to public service.  Reports on his character state that he wanted to be remembered as a public servant and not a politician.  Therefore, Shelby County is honoring the memory of our 41st President, George H.W. Bush by being public servants and remaining open on Wednesday, December 5 to serve our citizens.  I am so proud of the legacy that President Bush has given us as a nation and a state, humility, service, and knowing that we live in the greatest nation in the world.
