Suspect arrested after attempted kidnapping 

Pell City Police have arrested a suspect after a woman reported that a man tried to abduct her from a mobile home park. 43 year old Jay Willingham has been charged with second-degree attempted kidnapping and misdemeanor assault, just hours after a 24-year-old woman pointed him out as the man who allegedly attacked her as she went to her car in Shadydale Mobile Home Park Wednesday morning. According to a police, the victim told officers a man who appeared to be Hispanic grabbed her as she left her home for work around 4:10 Wednesday morning.

Officers responding to the scene searched the park for suspects. Willingham, was found at his residence in the park and the victim identified him as her assailant.

Severe Weather Preparedness 

Oh the seasons, they are a changing, and with the change comes what many call the severe weather season.  Oxford’s Quintard mall held a Severe Weather Preparedness day Wednesday, giving local residents a chance to learn more on how to prepare for severe weather.  Ken Lorek is the lead forecaster for the national weather service in Birmingham said that one thing they wanted to stress to residents is the importance of creating an emergency supply list, saying that in a storm related disaster, it could be several days before help is able to arrive. Besides the weather service, other government and emergency service agencies were also on hand.  Like Mark Hendrix, an emergency preparation coordinator for the regional public health office who stressed the importance of keeping a copy of eyeglass and medical prescriptions available in case of an emergency.  Hendrix said much of what is being taught today was learned from hurricane Katrina.  Other agencies who participated included the American Red Cross, The salvation army, emergency management as well as 911 and fire and police agencies.  Quintard Mall General Manager Carol Cleghorn said the annual event grew out of the malls efforts to protect mall visitors.   If you would like more information on severe weather preparedness, material is available from your local emergency management office or the national weather service website at For an emergency supply list, click on the link below.
