Calhoun County Commission seeking change in Deputy Pay 

Calhoun County is hoping to attract more job applications from experienced sheriff’s deputies if a change in hiring rules proposed by the County Commission and Sheriff Larry Amerson is accepted and approved by the county civil service board.   Commissioner Robert Downing said the county commission is asking the Civil Service Board to make changes which will help the county attract the best officers for the job.  Commission members and Sheriff Larry Amerson want the civil service board to consider offering experienced deputy applicants more than current rules allow. Under the current rules, all new hires must start at a $24,000 a year, and previous experience is not considered. Amerson said the change will help in the effort to hire experienced officers.  In the last civil service exam for applicants on Oct 12th,  52 signed up to take the test, 38 showed up on testing day, 23 passed and 10 were deemed qualified to serve following background checks and a physical-fitness test.

In other business Thursday the County commission approved Homeland Security grants .  The grants include $41,000 to the city of Jacksonville for its fire and police departments; $30,000 to Calhoun County E-911; $6,000 to the Piedmont Rescue Squad, and $30,000 to the Calhoun County Hazmat Team.

Thursdays meeting was the final meeting for Commissioner Rudy Abbott to serve as chairman.  The Chairman’s gavel will pass on to Commissioner “Pappy” Dunn at the next commission meeting which will be held Nov. 14 at 10 a.m. in the County Administration Building.  


Investigation underway into Talladega E911 

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is now involved in an investigation of possible misappropriated funds at the Talladega County E911 Board, according to Talladega County District Attorney Steve Giddens.   Following a 90-minute executive session Aug. 17, the board accepted the resignation of assistant director Shannon Keith, who has subsequently made two payments totaling $8,500 back to the board. Executive director Larry Wright said last month the board had authorized a special audit, which he said was standard procedure following the resignation of employees who handle money. Giddens said the private audit was almost complete, but a second audit, conducted by the state Examiners of Public Accounts, would likely get under way next week.  


Arrests Made in Spook House Fire 

Two people have been charged with a Monday morning fire that destroyed  the Centre House of Horrors on Day Street in Centre. 19 year old Christopher Douglas Whitmire,  of Centre and a juvenile from Leesburg have both been charged with arson in the second degree. They were also charged with burglary in the third degree and theft of property in the third degree, which are misdemeanors. Local fire departments were dispatched to the scene around 12:30 a.m. Monday morning and remained on the scene into the early daytime hours. At that time, Centre Fire Chief Kevin Ware said the fire was of a suspecious nature and would be investigated. Proceeds from the House of Horrors event, scheduled through Halloween, were to benefit needy families. The Centre Police Department, Centre Fire Department, District Attorney’s investigator and the State Fire Marshal conducted the investigation.  Whitmire is currently held in Cherokee County Detention Center and the juvenile was transported to the Youth Detention Center in Anniston.
