Ambulance Wars Claim a Casualty/Machismo

Med-Call Ambulance is no longer extant. The ambulance company's primary office is in Decatur, and the Shoals location was plagued by difficulties from the beginning of its operations. Sources have told us still another ambulance service will be locating in the Shoals within the next few weeks. Stay tuned...


Sheffield Police have stated Friday night's home invasion happened in the 200 block of Sterling Boulevard, also known as 19th Street. This block is immediately to the north of Avalon Avenue and contains only two homes.

These types of crimes are disconcerting to say the least. Newly reinstated Chief Greg Ray was probably hoping for a less stressful welcome back.


Ladies, your word for today is a Spanish import--machismo. Not quite sure what it means? Here's a couple of definitions:


[mah-cheez-moh, -chiz-, muh-] noun
a strong or exaggerated sense of manliness; an assumptive attitude that virility, courage, strength, and entitlement to dominate are attributes or concomitants of masculinity.
a strong or exaggerated sense of power or the right to dominate: The military campaign was an exercise in national machismo.

Want to wind up beaten, stabbed, and left in a drain pipe? No? May we suggest you avoid relationships with those who display this attribute.
