Authorities searching for sex offender 

A dog tracking team combed the woods Monday afternoon near Glencoe as police searched for a convicted sex offender who allegedly assaulted a man earlier that morning.  49 year old Danny Lewis Smith,  also known as Dan Rivers, was sought by Glencoe police officers after he apparently broke into the home of his estranged wife on Zuber Avenue.  Smith has a child with his estranged wife, who is 17 years old and has been separated from Smith since April. Her boyfriend was in the bed at the house when Smith broke in about 5 a.m. and used a big stick to beat him.  After receiving a 911 call, police spotted Smith in a 1990s model Oldsmobile and began chasing Smith, who drove to a home where he had been staying on Rabbittown Road.  
     Smith apparently crashed the car into a tree behind the house, got out of the car and ran.  Investigators said that Smith was convicted in 1994 in Phenix City for incest and sexual assault of his 17-year-old daughter.  Smith moved to Etowah County and was living in Glencoe when it was discovered he had not registered as a sex offender.  Smith moved to the Wellington area in Calhoun County early this year and failed to notify Hopper that he was moving from the county, a requirement under the sex offender law.  Smith was out of jail on bond on the assault charge and for failing to notify authorities he was moving.  Warrants for first-degree burglary and second-degree assault will be obtained.  Anyone who has information about Smith's whereabouts is asked to call the Glencoe Police Department, 492-1424. 


Hobson City appoints interim Police Chief 

After just one week on his new job as a part-time police officer in Hobson City, the Town Council meeting Monday night, officially appointed Jeff Bryant as the town’s police chief after charges were brought against Police Chief Daryl Parker for allegedly selling weapons illegally.  Last week, federal agents and Calhoun County Drug Task Force officers arrested Parker on charges that he sold guns to a convicted felon from his police car while on duty. Hobson City Mayor Ralph Woods said FBI agents advised town officials to stay tight-lipped about Parker’s case until the investigation is complete. The 44 year old Bryant,  has worked in law enforcement for 17 years. Before joining the Hobson City force, he was employed with the Glencoe Police Department. Woods said the town will carry out a search for a new police chief. For now, the council will conduct a thorough background check on Bryant. In other business Monday, Woods announced that a new bingo hall soon will open on Martin Luther King Drive. Rick Graham, of Oklahoma-based Total Gaming Inc., plans to open a bingo facility complete with a restaurant and sports bar. To operate in the town, Graham must pay $15,000 for a business license and pay $900 per week for tax fees.


Grant approved for new Jacksonville Senior Center

Jacksonville city officials got some good news Monday,  According to Mayor Johnny Smith, State officials have approved a $250,000 grant for the Jacksonville senior citizen center.   The existing senior center on Ladiga Street was closed in January because of the deteriorating condition of the building. Seniors have met since then in a room at the Jacksonville Community Center. Council members voted this summer to match the grant, if approved, with city funds, and at their last meeting  $125,000 from the city’s general fund was earmarked for the center.  


Lincoln Honda plant to increase production 

Honda Motor Company announced Monday that it will make the Pilot sport utility vehicle exclusively in Lincoln.  The Lincoln facility, which employs 4,500 people, will assume all Pilot production early next year.  According to spokesman Ted Pratt, production at the Lincoln facility will increase to normal early next year after being reduced to account for slowing SUV sales.  The Lincoln plant is already the only maker of Honda’s Odyssey minivans.  The Pilot decision makes Alabama factories the sole North American sources for both Honda Vehicles, the Mercedes M-Class, R-Class and GL-Class vehicles made in Vance, and the Sonata sedan and Santa Fe sport utility manufactured in Montgomery by Hyundai.
