Sidelines II Fire Arson?

Little official news has been released concerning the fire at Sidelines II in Muscle Shoals. The sports deli located in the former Something Fishy location on Ford Road burned around midnight Sunday. WHNT in Huntsville reported that 25% of the year-old eatery was affected by either fire, smoke, or water damage.

Private sources have reported that a female caller contacted the Muscle Shoals Police before the fire, informing them of the threat of arson. State fire marshals are still investigating the blaze. A sister restaurant in Florence remains open in the former Princeton's location on Cox Creek Parkway.


It's New Year's Eve, and we're pretty sure we're preaching to the choir, but just in case here goes... If you think wearing a seat belt isn't cool, how do you feel about going through the windshield?

The two Lawrence County men who died in a one-car accident Tuesday weren't wearing seat belts. Both were to become fathers in 2011, but that apparently didn't mean much to them. If your family and friends mean something to you, buckle up. Even better, stay sober; we understand it makes for better bussing at midnight.
