Calhoun County recorded its 14th homicide of the year Sunday.  Calhoun County Assistant Coroner Marvin Southard said 19 year old Rodney Bolton Jr. was shot  Sunday afternoon , in the 2800 block of Gurnee Avenue in Anniston.  Southard said that Bolton died from the multiple gunshot wounds to his head and chest.   Southard said hospital records listed Bolton's address on McArthur Drive, near the address of the shooting scene.  Police would not release details of their investigation into the shooting.  Bolton's body is being transported today to a state forensics lab in Huntsville for an autopsy.

A weekend accident near Ohatchee has left one person dead and four injured.  State troopers said the two-vehicle accident occurred Saturday morning, five miles south of Ohatchee on Boiling Springs Road. According to State Troopers, 52 yea rold William Edward Bean, of Ashville was fatally injured when his 2003 Toyota Tacoma and a 2002 Ford F-150 driven by 52 year old Bill Brooks,  of Glencoe collided just before 9 Saturday morning. According to Calhoun County Assistant Coroner Marvin Southard, Bean was southbound on Mudd Street and Brooks was westbound on Boiling Springs Road when the collision occurred in the intersection. Bean died at the scene, Brooks was transported to Gadsden Regional Medical Center along with 45 year old Debra Brooks, 24 year old Cynthia Brooks, and 16 year old Brandon Brooks. All were treated and released at Gadsden Regional Medical Center.



Effort underway to save Gadsden Goodyear plant 

Local and state officials in Gadsden are discussing a financial incentives package that would keep Gadsden's Goodyear tire plant out of the line of fire as company officials determine plant closures.  Goodyear is continuing talks with its workers' union on a new labor contract that would improve the company's competitiveness in a global market.  The Steelworkers want job security in the new labor deal. The latest proposal from Goodyear last week offers that, but it also allows the company to close two of the 12 plants under its master contract with the United Steelworkers.  Goodyear has not said which plants are targeted for closure, though USW said in June the company would not guarantee job security obtained in the labor agreement three years ago for union plants in Gadsden, Union City, Tenn., and Tyler, Texas.  At least one other tire plant may be on Goodyear's hit list.In recent weeks, local and state officials in Fayetteville, N.C., acknowledged work was under way on a $40 million taxpayer-backed incentives package for Goodyear. Officials in Tyler, Texas, also are said to be working on an incentives package in case one is needed.  Goodyear corporate officials have attended only one meeting about an incentives package for the company's Gadsden facility.That meeting took place in early August in Montgomery with Gov. Bob Riley and some of his staff. Goodyear's local management attended the meeting, as did local legislators.  Goodyear indicated to the state leaders that investment is needed in the plant to make it more efficient and competitive.  Goodyear's management team at the Gadsden facility has had several meetings on the matter since the state-level gathering.  Mike McCain, executive director of the Gadsden-Etowah Industrial Development Authority, said a number of meetings have taken place to deliberate ways and means to help ensure the competitive position of this plant in the marketplace.McCain said that no specific proposals have been made to Goodyear and no firm decisions have been made on anything concerning an incentives package.To gauge the impact that the Gadsden plant has on the area, the board of directors for the IDA decided last week  to hire an economics professor at Auburn University in Montgomery, to do an economic impact analysis of the Gadsden tire plant on the local area and the state.McCain said the study will cost $12,500 and should be completed no later than the end of October.

Etowah included in tracking system grant 

Etowah County is one of six counties in Alabama that will be part of a pilot program using a global positioning system to track those charged with crimes associated with methamphetamine.  Sheriff James Hayes said he hopes eventually to use that same technology to track sex offenders.  A grant for almost $1 million will be split among six counties in the fight against meth.  A person charged with a meth or related crime can be ordered by the court to wear an ankle bracelet and their whereabouts be tracked while out on bond. Hayes said he was impressed with the programs he has seen in other states and monitored by companies specializing in the tracking systems.  He said the same technology would be ideal to track sex offenders, but he is not sure whether a state law would have to address it.  Hayes said the convicted sex offender who killed his sister and brother-in-law and held their children hostage for hours before killing himself in August had not reported he had been living in Etowah County and there was no way to know that he was in violation of the sex offender law.  40 year old Johnny Ray Holderfield,  was a convicted sex offender who was registered to live in Marshall County and not on the property where his sister lived in Etowah County.
