On Sept. 24, the 53-year-old plans to put that determination to the test when he will strap a harness onto his bowed frame and pull an 18-wheeler in a North Carson Street parking lot at “high noon.”

The wife of a missing airline mechanic was charged Tuesday with grand theft, accused of taking thousands of dollars from her husband’s business and using his credit card without permission.

Authorities wouldn’t speculate Thursday whether the missing mechanic and the body found near Johnson Lane were related.
