  • Another Mobley now charged in Mount Eden

    TAYLORSVILLE – A bizarre story of alleged domestic violence and attempted murder in Mount Eden has become even stranger as the suspect’s nephew now faces charges in the case for attempting to run over the alleged victim with his motorcycle.

    Waddy resident Sammy F. Mobley, 36, faces a first-degree wanton endangerment charge in connection with a March 16 incident in which Benjamin W. Mobley, 58, of Murphy Lane allegedly attempted to shoot at and pistol-whip his girlfriend, who is from Mount Eden.

  • 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?

  • WICHE: Cedar-apple rust cycle begins

    Predictions for this season include a high incidence of both fire blight and cedar apple rust. The signs of fire blight (scorched-looking foliage and stem tips) are rather boring compared to the freaky looking appendages that “ripen” with cedar-apple rust.

    Get ready to start seeing large, orange gelatinous spore horns hanging from cedars like they are decorated with Japanese lanterns.

    They strike awe and dread from me because they are fabulous looking creations of nature, but they also forewarn a rust problem in the orchard for next year.

  • Collins rebounds, wins 2 in baseball

    The Butler Bears (5-3) went on a 5-0 spree – scoring four in the fourth inning – to beat host Collins (7-3) this past Thursday night, part of a 3-1 week for the Titans.

    “We played okay for the most part against Butler,” said Collins Coach Roy Bailey, whose team scored single runs in the first, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh innings. “We just had one bad inning that really hurt us. We can't afford that against a good team.”
