Sheely’s owners are retiring


The owners of Sheely’s Furniture and Appliance plan to step down and hand the business over to the next generation of owners, the furniture store announced Tuesday.

Sheely’s was founded in 1952 by Dale Sheely Sr. Dale Jr. and Sherry Sheely now plan to leave the business. The new owners are Jessica Smith, a granddaughter of Dale Sr., and longtime employees Jeff Curry, general manager, and Lance Romeo, buyer.

A company statement said the current and new owners will “move forward together with a fresh vision for how to carry the successes of the past leadership forward.” The store is at 11450 South Ave.

Facebook takes down accounts


Facebook has identified and banned more accounts engaged in misleading political behavior ahead of the U.S. midterm elections in November.

The social network said Tuesday that it had removed 652 pages, groups, and accounts linked to Russia and, unexpectedly, Iran, for “coordinated inauthentic behavior” that included the sharing of political material.

Facebook has significantly stepped up policing of its platform since last year, when it acknowledged that Russian agents successfully ran political influence operations on Facebook aimed at swaying the 2016 presidential election.

The social network said it had not concluded its review of the material and declined to say how or why the state-backed actors were behaving the way they did. But it said it has informed the U.S. and U.K. governments as well as informed the U.S. Treasury and State departments because of ongoing sanctions against Iran.
