Suspect sought in Haralson County Georgia
Haralson County Georgia authorities say that an
arson suspect is in custody and a second suspect is being sought in
connection with a Friday night fire that destroyed a home on Pleasant
Hill Church Road just outside of Tallapoosa. 31 year old Emmit Eugene
Burgess of Tallapoosa is in custody on charges of first and second
degree arson and burglary, while his 24 year old cousin Danny Wayne
Burgess of Tallapoosa remains at large. Haralson County Fire Chief
Brian Walker says firefighters from his department along with Carroll
County, Tallapoosa and the State Fire Marshall's office took about an
hour to bring the fire under control and many remained on the scene
into Saturday morning as the arson investigation began. A reward of up
to 10 thousand dollars is available through the state fire marshall's
office for information leading to the arrest and conviction of
suspects in the case. Chief Walker says no one was injured in the
fire, although the home was occupied by a couple and their four year
old child at the time the fire broke out.
Heflin drug bust
A Heflin man is facing drug charges following a
raid on his Apartment. Heflin Police and Cleburne County Sheriff's
deputies, executed a search warrant at the apartment of James D.
Williams on Bedwell St in Heflin. Williams has been charged with
trafficking meth, three counts of possession of a controlled
substance, one count of possession of marijuana, first degree and one
count of possessing drug paraphernalia.
Red Diamond ready to build in Moody
Red Diamond could begin construction on its
corporate headquarters in Moody as early as next month. The Moody city
Zoning Board of Adjustment is scheduled to hear April 30 whether the
company may obtain a variance that would allow construction to begin
before the City Council hears a rezoning request. The site is 59 acres
on Park Avenue that will have the corporate headquarters with the
coffee, tea and food divisions. City Attorney Bill Weathington said
Red Diamond wants to start building soon, but the earliest the council
could hear a rezoning request would be in late May. The council
earlier this year created a new zoning classification that would allow
the corporate headquarters but didn't address the specific site. If
the variance is granted, Mayor Joe Lee said he plans on getting ready
for a groundbreaking. The Moody City council and the St. Clair County
Commission last month approved sizable incentive packages to lure the
coffee, tea and food service business from its Birmingham location
where they had been for the past 101 years. Moody approved providing
a half million dollars toward buying and developing the new site and
abating property taxes that are not education-related. St. Clair gave
more than $2 million in loans and guarantees. The company is expected
to employ 160 people in Moody, with 60 of those jobs being new hires.
The headquarters is expected to open in July 2008.
Tuesday is income tax deadline

tax return, your return must be postmarked no later that April 17th.

Gadsden, taxpayers will have until midnight Tuesday to send their

The Gadsden post office will be open and will offer all available

dropped off at a box outside the post office will be postmarked April
17 and the post office will close promptly at midnight. You are again
advised to check with your local post office to determine the deadline
for depositing mail to receive Tuesdays postmark.
