Calhoun County fugitive arrested in Florida 

A Munford man who is on Calhoun County’s “most wanted list.” Has been captured in Florida following a 12 mile police chase.  According to the Leon County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office, 21 year old Simon Heath Haynes, of Munford was arrested as an out-of-state fugitive and on drug and traffic charges. The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office Web site lists Haynes as one of the top 15 “most wanted” criminal suspects for the county. Haynes is wanted for breaking and entering a vehicle, assault in the second degree and reckless endangerment. Sheriff Larry Amerson said that Haynes is suspected in business burglaries in Calhoun and Talladega counties. Amerson said that his office had been searching for Haynes for some time, and chased him in high-speed pursuits twice with out success. The sheriff said that since Haynes was captured in Florida and had is charged with endangering officers there, he probably would be tried in that state’s court system before extradition to Alabama.




Honda announces expansion 

Officials at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama announced Monday a $40 million expansion that will add 20 employees to its existing workforce of about 4,500.

The plant has begun the expansion to create die cast equipment, which Honda representatives say will make its Alabama operation more self-sufficient. The growth comes at the heels of a $70 million expansion to add a crankshaft and connecting rod-producing facility expected to be online by the end of the year.

The expansion will add a 41,000 square-foot facility that will include high- and low-pressure aluminum die cast equipment, high- and low-pressure aluminum melt surfaces, low-pressure heat-treat equipment and additional sand mold capabilities, according to a press release on Monday.


Work moving forward on Bains Gap Road 

McClellans  Joint Powers Authority program management committee voted Monday to increase production on Bains Gap Road. The current work schedule for ECC, the contractor cleaning up unexploded munitions along the road, has been increased from four 10-hour days to five 10-hour days. Calhoun County plans to have a 3 mile section of the road completed in October.   Once opened, Choccolocco residents could cross McClellan in about seven minutes, as opposed to Going around the old fort now takes about 30 minutes. Anniston Mayor Chip Howell  made a  recent trip to Colorado to meet with Army officials on providing more money for explosives cleanup at McClellan. The JPA has received $64.8 million from the Army under the Environmental Services Cooperative Agreement since 2003. Howell would not put a dollar amount on what he was asking the Army to give, but said it would be more than $64.8 million. He said he would know exactly what the JPA will get within 30 days.


Cherokee County plant to expand 

Pemco International will expand its Leesburg plant as part of a restructuring that will add 50 to 60 jobs in Cherokee County. The company also will move its U.S. headquarters from Baltimore to Leesburg and close its Baltimore plant. During the next year, the company will phase out production in Baltimore and increase operations in Leesburg, Pemco President Jack McMahon said. Pemco, which is based in Belgium and has operations around the world, manufactures porcelain enamel for appliances. McMahon said combining production in Leesburg is more cost-effective for the company.
