Aiken plant building  HERCULES vehicles  Judge denies Tipsey motion  BY ANNA DOLIANITIS   adolianitis@aikenstandard.com   A preliminary injunction barring an Aiken pub from continuing to use the Tipsey McS-tumbles trade name and logo will remain in place, a federal judge in Augusta ruled Tuesday.  U.S. District Court Judge Randal Hall denied a motion filed by Chris Griffin, owiier of the then-Tipsey McStumbles in Aiken -which was renamed The Griffin in late July - asking the judge to dismiss the preliminary injunction thai was ordered on May 12.  In the civil lawsuit tiled in U.S. District Court in Augusta in April, Augusta Tipsey McStumbles owner Michael Anglm alleges that Griffin, who opened the Aiken pub with the same name on St. Patrick’s Day, stole the name, logo and Catholic schoolgirl outfit worn by waitresses.  Griffin filed a countersuit against Anglin shortly after the temporary injunction was granted, alleging that the Augusta location is unlawfully using the Tipsey’s name, logo and I trade dress, not the other way around.  I A motion to dismiss Griffin’s counterclaim | is still pending.  Judge Hall’s order on Tuesday stated that, i though Griffin claims that he created the mark j and came up w ith the name Tipsey McS-J tumbles, ’rights in trademarks are not gained ; through discovety or invention of the mark but only through actual usage.”  The order states that there is “undisputed I evidence” showing that Anglin was the first to adopt the mark and its symbols and the first to t use it in the marketplace.  The counterclaim claims that Griffin had I one-half, equal ownership in Tipsey McStumbles, LLL', and that Anglin attempted to oust him from the location, so Griffin opened ! the Aiken location.  The business agreement signed by Anglm I and Griffin states that Griffin was to make I payments to Anglin to eventually achieve part-I ownership in Tipsey McStumbles, but Griffin I did not till fill the requirements, according to the initial lawsuit.

The car stolen most often by thieves in the Palmetto State isn’t taken for its state-of-the-art navigation system or factory mp3 stereo system - it’s most likely taken for its parts.  SEE LOCAL NEWS 3A  BY ROB NOVIT   rnovit@aikenstandard.com   BAK Systems’ Aiken plant is erne of two company facilities that will build 45 additional HERCULES recovery vehicles for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps over the next two years through a $108 million contract modification.  The announcement Tuesday has no connection of any kind to “Project Hercules," the name given to a mystery economic development v enture the Aiken County government is currently pursuing.  Ronnie Young, the Aiken County Council chairman, w as pleased by the new s of the BAK Systems contract expansion, but the similarity of Project Hercules and the HERCULES vehicle "is strictly a coincidence," he said. "The ‘Project Hercules’ name was just pulled out of the air ”  The HERCULES M88A2 has played a significant role in recent history.  The M88 model was used by Malines to pull down the statue of Saddam I iussein in central Baghdad on April 9, 2003.  “This solidifies jobs and increases investment in the community.”  Greater Aiken Chamber of Commerce president and CEO  HERCULES is an acronym for Heavy Equipment Recovery Combat Utility Evacuation System.  BAE’s Aiken and York, Pa., plants will use the U.S. government’s remanufactured hulls to produce 29 vehicles for the Army and 16 for the Marine Corps. Both plants will use existing staff*to handle the work.  Deliv ery will begin in April 2013 and will continue through December of that year.

BY KAREN DAILY   kdaily@aikenstandard.com   'A 20-year-old Salley man was charged with the attempted murder of his 18-year-old brother who was shot once in the head Tuesday afternoon at the home the two men share, officials said.  Richard Mason admitted to Aiken County Sheriff’s Office investigators that he shot his younger brother, Brian Enlow, in the head with a .22 caliber gun at their 207 Bobby Arthurs Drive residence, said Capt. Troy Elwell, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman.  Mason has changed his narrative of the events several times, and investigators have been unable to interview Enlow because of the severity and nature of his injuries, Elwell said.  Enlow was in critical condition and transported by ambulance to Aiken Regional Medical Centers around 2 p.m., Elwell said.  Deputies learned about the shooting when Mason called 911.  Mason initially said he found his injured brother at the residence, but he later confessed to firing the handgun, which had been hidden prior to law enforcement’s arrival, Elwell said.
