  • Signs disappearing from Shelby County roadways

    Ever stopped to ask for directions?

    Now finding one’s destination is becoming more and more difficult in Shelby County. The reason?

    People are stealing road and street signs. They are disappearing every day, not just one at time, but in droves, officials say.

    Road Supervisor Carl Henry brought up the issue last November, and at Tuesday’s fiscal court meeting, magistrates expressed concern that the problem was not dissipating, but growing.
