Three injured in Anniston Shootings 

Anniston’s violent crime rate continues to rise with Three shooting incidents over the past two days.  Police said all three shootings occurred in west Anniston Monday night and Tuesday morning sending three men to hospitals with gunshot wounds. Police say that Two men were shot on Elm Street near the Constantine Homes near 10 p.m. Monday night as they were visiting a friend who live there when two men came around the corner of the building and opened fire.   27 year old  Bobby Thomas of Anniston was shot in the hip and leg and drove himself to the hospital.   30 year old Demetrius McCollum of Anniston has hit in the leg and was transported to to a Birmingham hospital.   A 24 year old man was shot in the backyard of a Ferron Avenue home Tuesday morning. Investigators say that they have a person of interest in one of the cases. Officers said that while all three incidents happened at similar times and in the same general area, there are not direct links between the shootings.



Incentives offered to keep Goodyear in Gadsden 

Goodyear received a financial incentives proposal Tuesday aimed at keeping Gadsden's tire plant off a company closure list.  Mike McCain, executive director of the Gadsden-Etowah Industrial Development Authority, said the proposal includes local and state incentives, some of which are taxpayer supported. It is designed to encourage Goodyear to invest money to modernize and expand the Gadsden plant.  As Goodyear continues talks with its workers' union on a new labor contract,  the United Steelworkers gave notice this week workers may strike at noon Thursday if progress isn't made in those negotiations.  The company wants to close two plants as part of the new contract, and Gadsden is one of four facilities identified by the United Steelworkers as having been the subject of closure talks.  Gadsden and Tyler, Texas, are the two plants left off the protected status list in the company's latest proposal.  A task force formed to identify a way to help ensure the competitive position of Gadsden's tire plant met Tuesday morning.  The county's four state legislators are among more than 20 people on the task force along with McCain.   Also serving on the task force are Gadsden Mayor Sherman Guyton, Etowah County Commission Chairman Tim Choate, Goodyear's Gadsden plant manager Chris Koscho and Riley, the union official.



Former Cherokee task force commander pleads guilty 

The former commander of the Cherokee County Drug Task Force pleaded guilty Monday to theft and to ethics violations for using the position for personal gain.
41 year old Joey Hester, of Leesburg, was scheduled to stand trial this week in
Cherokee County on first-degree theft for checks drawn on the Cherokee County narcotics account at a Cherokee County bank, according to an indictment filed in June.  Hester also was charged with 15 counts of using his former position for personal gain, which are felonies that come under the ethics law.
Hester pleaded guilty to all 16 counts in Cherokee County Circuit Court.
He was sentenced to five years in prison but the sentence was split and he was ordered to serve one year in the Etowah County Detention Center. He will then be on three years' probation.  Hester also was ordered to repay  $7,250 and court costs.  The case was prosecuted by the state attorney general's office.
