  • West Shelby Water adds solar, other high-tech aids

    West Shelby Water District Manager Steve Eden said the Simpsonville-based utility had been looking to add beacon lights to the top of its three water towers for some time now, but the cost had been delaying the plan.

    “It’s normally pretty cost prohibitive because of you have to run electrical conduit all the way up the side of the tower,” he said. “And stat flight has asked us to put them up there because they fly this corridor to the hospitals.”

  • Shelby Hardware no longer Ace in name only

    Ace has no place on the marquee of one of Shelby County’s hardware stores – but there’s plenty of Ace still inside.

    The former Ace Hardware store on Midland Trail recently changed its name to Shelby Hardware, a switch, owner Charles Bates said, has been slowly unfolding.

    “Basically, all we’re doing is dropping the expenses we’ve got for carrying their trade names and brand marks,” Bates said. “We’re still buying from them and still have their products, [but] we’ve dropped their support.”

  • UNDERWOOD: Together everybody achieves more

    The NCAA March Madness was all over the TV screens the past few weeks. The “talking heads” analyzed every conceivable dimension of how the teams preformed.

    The experts shook their heads and wondered how little Lehigh managed to beat the mighty Duke Blue Devils and how the inconsistent Louisville Cardinals made it to the Final Four.  Further Cats’ fans nervously wondered if the boys could stick together and hang up No. 8. And they did!

    Besides outstanding talent and great coaching, what makes the difference when the game is on the line?

  • Blooming big business

    Easter lilies are an integral part of the annual celebration for which it received its name.

    The trumpet shape is considered symbolic of the heralding of Jesus on his triumphant entry to Jerusalem. Scholars also believe the striking white flower may have also grown in that area.

    The Angel Gabriel is said to have approached the Virgin Mary with a spray of lilies, announcing to her that she had been picked to be the mother of the holy child.

    But if you'd like to have one in your home through the Lenten season, you better plan ahead.
