MercyMe was forced to cancel a concert at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds near Shelby on Saturday after the stage for the band’s show blew down in a strong line of storms.  The band’s opening act, The Afters, was doing a sound check around 3:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon when the winds picked up and the stage started shaking. **The concert kicked off a week of events for the American Legion World Series at Shelby High School next weekend. Seven teams from around the country will travel to Shelby for the national championship tournament. Mercy Me front man Bart Millard tweeted ‘Thank God nobody was hurt.” Only a few pieces of equipment were damaged.  The show was cancelled…

It’s now healing time”: That’s what Hannah Anderson’s father tweeted to CNN this weekend when the 16-year-old girl was found after an agonizing manhunt for the 40-year-old man who’s suspected of killing her mother and brother – and kidnapping her. A tip from some horseback riders sent FBI agents swarming to the Idaho wilderness Saturday where James DiMaggio was fatally wounded in a confrontation. Hannah was OK. http://apnews.myway.com/article/20130812/DA84ET682.html
