Marshals arrest Thompson 

U.S. Marshals on Wednesday arrested Larry Thompson, who was sentenced last week to 50 months in federal prison as part of a public corruption investigation in Gadsden.  Thompson was to report by Sept. 13 to federal prison, but apparently his bond has been revoked. Documents filed Wednesday in federal court and signed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Greene were sealed The arrest was for a federal bond revocation.  Thompson apparently was arrested earlier Wednesday in Gadsden on assault and criminal mischief charges from incidents that happened this week.  Dani Bone, the Gadsden attorney who has represented Thompson, filed documents Tuesday in federal court to withdraw as Thompson's attorney.  U.S. District Judge Scott Coogler sentenced Thompson on Aug. 16 to 50 months for bribing city officials and wire fraud. Coogler said it was "obvious" Thompson, a consultant, had set out to bribe city officials in connection with the development of Lafferty's Landing on Rainbow Drive. The government had sought for Thompson to pay back $56,400 of the $64,500 the FBI paid through developer Jason Stinson, who was an informant for the government in the case. The difference in the amounts - $8,100 - was paid to other officials. Coogler denied that request, saying the law did not allow the recovery of money when the FBI could not prove it was damaged by the crime. In May, Thompson broke out the window of Stinson's car, which was a factor in his sentence.  Former Councilman Fred Huff was sentenced to 30 months in prison and former Councilman Jim Armstrong was sentenced to 18 months in prison for accepting bribes and wire fraud. Former Gadsden Commercial Development Director Cathy Back was sentenced to 22 months in prison for her role. 

 

 

Man dies in Cherokee shooting 

Cherokee County authorities report that a Round Mountain man was shot and killed Tuesday night during an argument with his father. Officials said that 27 year old Jonathan Lee Waldrop, who lived at the Round Mountain Campground near Leesburg, was pronounced dead at the residence.  Waldrop's father was questioned Tuesday night and released. Investigators said the case is still under investigation and may be presented to a grand jury. No charges have been filed in the case.  

 

Cheaha water situation improved 

Conditions are somewhat better with the water situation at the Cheaha State Park. In June, the park’s three water tanks were nearly empty. Park Superintendent David Odom says  that the situation is much better than it was, but the lack of rain is responsible for the parks wells not producing properly. Odom says in order to keep from getting in another critical situation, they’ve been buying water from Anniston and trucking it back up the mountain. Odom says it’s been many years since the park has had this type of problems with their water supply. 

 

Wildfire continues to burn 

More than 60 firefighters from Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Texas continue to battle a wildfire in the Cheaha Wilderness. U.S. Forest service spokesman Jorge Hershel says their main concern is protecting private property in that area. Officials believe a lightning strike may have sparked the fire over the weekend. It started about four miles west of Lineville, near the south end of the federal Cheaha Wilderness. Forestry officials say the drought situation and the heat are making it much tougher than usual for firefighters. Officials say that more than 330 acres has burned and the fire has been three-quarters contained.
