Boy killed because of bad report card 

  A Rainbow City woman was charged  Tuesday afternoon with hindering prosecution and her boyfriend was charged with capital murder in the death of the woman's  five-year-old son Geontae Glass, who was reported missing Monday.  25-year-old Shalinda Glass of Rainbow City told police Monday  that her son was sleeping in the back of her car outside a  convenience store when the car was stolen. An Amber Alert was issued and a massive search ensued.  Etowah County Sheriff James Hayes in a press conference Tuesday said that the alert was an effort to cover up the childs death.  Glass and her boyfriend, 31-year-old Kevin Andre Towles, were arrested  early tuesday morning at Towles' apartment in Rainbow City.   Sheriff Hayes said Glass told police that her son died from a beating from Towles after he brought home a bad  progress report from school Friday.  Marshall County District Attorney Steve Marshall said the search of an residence Monday led to the location of the home where the body was discovered.  In addition to finding the childs body, officers also recovered more than 30-thousand dollars in cash, a small amount of cocaine, marijuana residue and weapons including an A-K-47.  Etowah County district attorney Jimmie Harp said he wants the case wrapped up as soon as possible.  Sheriff Hayes said the case was an ongoing investigation which could lead to further arrests as the investigation continues.

Officials credit Amber alert with helping in discovery of boys body 

Officials Tuesday said that despite an Amber alert that turned out to be a hoax.  They feel the alert was instrumental in leading authorities to the body of 5 year old Geontae Glass.  Carmen Adams agent in charge of the Birmingham FBI office, said she felt that the Amber alert worked and was instrumental in the recovery of the boys body and the arrest of those responsible.   The amber alert was issued early Monday morning but was not cancelled until hours after the body was found.  Etowah County Sheriff James Hayes said that the reason for delaying cancellation of the alert was to not alert suspects until they could further their investigation.  Today grief counselors will be on campus today at the John S. Jones Elementary school in Rainbow City where 5 year old Geontae Glass was a student.  The school sent a letter home Tuesday to parents.  The counselors will be on hand to help students and teachers cope with the death.

 

   

Suit filed to recover gambling proceeds 

The lawyer who won a legal battle against the sweepstakes games at the Birmingham dog track has set a new legal goal: recovering millions lost by gamblers who played the illegal sweepstakes.  Matt Lembke and members of his Birmingham law firm have filed a lawsuit against the Birmingham Race Course seeking to recover under a state law that allows customers to sue for money lost at illegal gambling. Lembke said that The Legislature has made clear that people who offer illegal gambling cannot keep their ill-gotten means.

Steele plant announces expansion 

Yachiyo Manufacturing of Alabama announced plans Wednesday for a $28 million expansion at its Steele facility that will create at least 42 new jobs, add 72,000 square feet to the operation and generate thousands of dollars in sales tax for area schools. Yachiyo Manufacturing, a Tier 1 supplier for Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, announced the expansion would include a new stamping line for the structural component parts made for Hondas Odyssey mini-van and Pilot SUV.
     Currently, the metal parts are stamped in Canada and transported to the Steele facility, where they are welded and sent to Honda.

 

Piedmont Celebrates Christmas 

While Christmas celebrations abound in the area this season, there is nothing quite like the country Christmas celebrations in the city of Piedmont.  With nightly events this week featuring local choirs, mayor Charlie Fagan says it is something residents look forward to.  Piedmonts Christmas celebration continues Wednesday evening with music and culminates with the cities Christmas parade Thursday evening in downtown Piedmont at 6pm.
