Woman shoots intruder in a home near Daphne

by: Debbie Williams
BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — A 44-year-old woman is hospitalized after being shot Thursday morning in a home near Daphne.

The homeowner on Collier Loop Road was in the bathtub when her children heard a commotion in the front of the house. “So they go back and tell the mother that someone is in the house. They don’t know who it is and they should not be in the house,” says Baldwin County Sheriff’s Captain Clint Cadenhead.

That led to a confrontation between the homeowner and a woman she knew, who used to live there. “She commands the person to get out of the house. They don’t leave. She ends up getting a firearm out of the bedside table and again telling the person to leave and the information we have the person that got shot may have reached for the gun.”

East Bluff Man Says He Mistook Police For Intruder

The man arrested for shooting at Peoria Police on Sunday in the East Bluff — may not have been shooting at them after all.Peoria County State’s Attorney Jodi Hoos says Jordan Cremer claims he did not know police were there when he fired a warning shot. Instead, he says he was trying to scare off what he thought was an intruder.

Ali Gude lives in the same East Bluff neighborhood. Given the crime they have seen there lately, he say’s Cremer’s actions were understandable.

“That’s what we have to do, it’s a lot going on around this times, with that situation you just got to think fast you know,” said Gude.

Tense moments caught on video when man with a gun confronts theft suspects

by: Jennifer Gardiner
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Some tense moments in the parking lot of a Salt Lake City warehouse involving two men with guns were caught on video Wednesday morning.

Workers at the business started recording the incident after noticing what appeared to be an altercation between men in a parking lot near 1700 South and 1800 West.

The witnesses started to yell at the men when they noticed one of them had a gun who then pointed it at a driver in a white pickup truck.

Salt Lake City Police Sgt. Brandon Shearer said they responded to the area and talked to the man in the Subaru who said the individuals in the white truck had stolen some tools of his from his shed.

The man then chased the suspects down and when he went to confront them, they pulled out a gun. In return, the man grabbed his own gun and demanded his tools back from the suspects.

A picture of the Centennial Edition of the work of the Sainted John Moses Browning is prove that AW1Ed loves us and wants us to be happy. Let us now turn in the book, to the chapter and verse and sing his praises.

teh stooopid carried over from yesterday. Must be contagious.


Yeah, Patton would have loved the pearl handles on that piece. (smile)


“Well, I’m sittin’ here playing solitaire
With my pearl-handled deck
The county won’t give me no more methadone
And they cut off your welfare check”


Ivory, not Pearl, on that Kimber Centennial Edition.

Patton had ivory-grip revolvers.


Those grip panels are not pearl. They are likely faux ivory. And, for PH2’s benefit, they weren’t made from elephant trunks or any other part of the animal.


Whale bone (scrimshaw)

Nah, probably made from fossil fuel
(old dinasaur bone)


I did a little research and must, as we used to say back in the day, “stand corrected.” The pistol in the photo is one of only 250 built by Kimber in 2011. It is the Kimber Centennial Edition Model 1911. It does have real elephant ivory grips. So yes, they came from an elephant that likely died sometime prior to 1986. Sorry, Ex-PH2.

For those that would like to purchase one, two are presently available on; but you need to be prepared to part with about $4.5K.


And you will have to pass a background check unless you have an FFL.

So how are they able to make ivory grips? I know it is illegal to import, did they “reclaim” it from an old piano or something?


Peoria used to be a sleepy, boring small city. I guess things have changed.
