Authorities investigating possible kidnapping
Centre police and the FBI are investigating a possible kidnapping
Wednesday after someone left a note at Hardee’s that said they were
being kidnapped. Centre Police Department Investigator Arlon Reed
said three young people — two males and one female — had been in the
restaurant on West Main Street in Centre on Wednesday morning and the
note was found at their table after they left. The young men and
woman, who were white, appeared to be between the ages of 17 and 20.
One of the men was described as having long brown hair and the other
man was described as having short, dark hair, and wearing a toboggan.
The female was described as having dark hair. The trio was in a black
Sonoma pickup truck with a chrome toolbox on the back. A CB radio
antenna was attached to the toolbox. Investigators are hoping that
video from the restaurant’s surveillance camera, will shed light on
Companies seeking gas exploration in St. Clair
Energy companies are scrambling for drilling rights in St. Clair
County, where geologists have discovered a natural gas formation with
the potential to rival any in the country. Drillers have bought gas
rights on 500,000 acres in and around St. Clair during the past two
years, paying up to $500 an acre plus a share of potential revenues.
They now want state permission to begin widespread production on 40
square miles in and around Ashville, according to Alabama Oil and Gas
Board records. Geologists compare the area's potential to that of a
legendary Texas natural gas field called the Barnett Shale, which has
grown to 5,000 square miles and produces more energy than any other
onshore gas field in the country. Shale formations in St. Clair County
run 9,000 feet thick, dwarfing the 1,500-foot shales in Texas. Thicker
shale means more gas per square mile. The finds in St. Clair are part
of a larger energy-rich geologic formation that runs north through
Etowah County and into northern Georgia. The scope of the new gas
field is wide. Last month, the trade magazine Oil & Gas Journal
reported that energy companies were also seeking leases from property
owners in Cherokee and Etowah counties.
