  • SOUDER: Is that what the Sheriff said?

    One of my favorite movies is the 1969 Western comedy, Support Your Local Sheriff, starring James Garner (as a wise-cracking, quick-drawing sheriff), Harry Morgan, Walter Brennan and Jack Elam (in a show-stealing role as a stable-hand turned deputy).

  • Triple S clears new cell phone towers

    The Triple S Planning Commission Tuesday cleared the way for two new cell phone towers in Shelby County, but not before the public had its say during the meeting.

    The Southville tower, to be built at 6596 Mt. Eden Road, caused the most intrigue from the community, but not much of a protest.

    New Cingular Wireless, the company building the towers, had asked for a 30-foot waiver on the setback from the neighboring property line, building the tower 170 feet from the adjoining property.

    The commission denied the request, saying it wasn't necessary.

    Asked to write a composition entitled, "What I'm thankful for on Thanksgiving," 7-year-old Timmy wrote, "I’m thankful that I’m not a turkey!"

  • EARLIER: New construction holding steady

    No shocker here: New homes aren’t being built in Shelby County at the torrid pace of last decade’s boom years. But though 2010 isn’t looking like a return to the days of real-estate frenzy, the current rate is at least on par with that of last year.

    There were 76 permits issued for new dwellings in the county through the first six months of the year, which matched the total of the same period a year ago, according to the Triple S Planning Commission.
