Body found in Websters Chapel 

Calhoun County Sheriffs Deputies are investigating the death of a Gadsden man whose body was found on a dirt road near Rocky Hollow Road in Webster’s Chapel Thursday evening. Calhoun County Assistant Coroner Marvin Southard said 47 year old Kenneth Leslie Cox, of 1207 Jupiter St., Gadsden, had sustained a gunshot wound in the left leg. Southard said, however, that the actual cause of death is under investigation.   Officials said the body was discovered by a friend or relative who went out looking for him when he wasn’t home as expected by lunch.   Southard said that the body has been transported to the forensics lab for an autopsy.  Meanwhile investigators say their investigation into the death is continuing.


Goodyear employees walking picket line 

More than 1,200 workers at the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. plant in Gadsden went on strike Thursday after talks between their union and the company failed to produce a labor agreement. Members of the United Steelworkers of America at 12 Goodyear plants in 10 states walked off the job at noon Thursday in a dispute that centers on job security, a desire for better health care benefits and prescription drug coverage, according to  Dennis Battles, president of Steelworkers Local 12 in Gadsden. The strike affects at least 12,600 workers across the nation, according to the company.

The union represents about 1,250 of the 1,450 employees employed at Goodyear's Gadsden plant. At one time the Gadsden plant employed 4,500 workers and was the world's largest tire plant. Battles said the strike is personal for the Gadsden workers since the union says that Goodyear wants to close the Gadsden plant and another in Tyler, Texas, to cut costs. That was the key sticking point in the talks, as the union was determined to avoid plant shutdowns. Goodyear targeted the Gadsden plant for closure in 1999, but changed its mind after the company won a new production contract.


New trial denied for Calhoun County man 

An Etowah County judge has ruled that a Calhoun County man convicted of murder will not get a new trial.  Circuit Judge Shaun Malone has denied a motion for a new trial for Jody Griffith, who was convicted of murder in June in the February 2004 shooting death of his girlfriend's ex-husband, Mark Anthony, in the parking lot at Patterson's Grocery on U.S. 411.  Griffith,  was sentenced in August to 35 years in prison.  He was indicted for capital murder because he sat inside a vehicle with the window rolled up when he fired shots. The jury found him guilty of the lesser charge of murder.  Following the sentencing hearing in August, Griffith's family protested outside the judicial building because of evidence they say was not allowed to be heard during the trial.  Attorney Roy McCord filed the motion and said at a September hearing that transcripts of tapes were not allowed as evidence, the testimony of Anthony's son was not allowed and Malone did not give jurors the option of choosing manslaughter in the heat of passion as one of the possible verdicts.  Gary Phillips, the assistant district attorney who prosecuted the case, said the tapes did not appear to be complete and everything that was relevant to the case was brought out in testimony.  Phillips also pointed out that McCord read from the transcripts during closing arguments and some of the information in the tapes came out in testimony.
