This past Easter weekend was marred when the Helena and Pelham police had to become engaged in a domestic dispute in the parking lot of Papa Saia's. The suspect was shot and transported. I posted this on Saturday night but if this is the first time for you then here is the full story: Shelby County Reporter
Helena Mayor Mark Hall had this to say, "Initial reports indicate Helena and Pelham Police officers, who responded to assist HPD, handled a dangerous situation swiftly and appropriately in the parking lot at Papa Saias tonight, resulting in only the armed suspect receiving injuries. I'm am thankful to our officers for putting their safety aside to protect law abiding and innocent citizens at any cost".
Good Bye to Bill

Helena Clean Up
Last but not least...The Helena Clean Up on Saturday was big hit. The two dumpsters were full by the first hour and the line to dump was at one point 30 cars long. I think everyone was ready for some Sprig cleaning and few were cleaning up after flood damage. Thank you to the Mayor for organizing this event.
