Mulberry’s Market Comes To Town

Posted by drewbendon on July 16, 2007

Mulberry’s Market has officially taken over the space at 335 Highland, has begun clean-up and renovation and has launched their website (www.mulberrysmarket.com) where they will post construction updates.  Currently, Chad and Laura are looking to open by Thanksgiving 2007 or before.

I was able to tour the space that was handed over and I think that we will all be happy that Chad and Laura will be bringing a clean, fresh face to the Civic Center.

PIEDMONT — Authorities booked a juvenile suspect on suspicion of burglary and kidnapping after a police dog found him hiding in a home, police said. Piedmont Police received a 9-1-1 call at about 3:55 a.m. Sunday from a woman saying she was robbed at gunpoint by several intruders in a home on the 10 block of Monticello. She was able to escape to a neighbor’s house, police said, while the suspects were still in the residence, along with the homeowner and her children, police said.

As police approached the home, an officer confronted one of three suspects as he was trying to break into the homeowner’s vehicle, police said.

The suspect then ran to the back of the home, police said, and police determined there were possibly two more individuals participating in the burglary. They believed that at least one was armed.

Police safely evacuated both the homeowner and the children, leaving one suspect holed up alone in the home.
