  • Oxford Councilman stepping down
  • Riverside body identified
  • Tyson announces layoffs


Oxford Councilman stepping down 

After serving 22 years on the Oxford City Council, Place one councilman Johnny Bentley will be leaving the council on March second.  Bentley, who was not present at Tuesday night’s council meeting, submitted a letter of resignation to the mayor and council.  Mayor Leon Smith said that Bentley will be missed.  City Council President Mike Henderson said that an announcement will probably be made at the council’s next meeting regarding the search for a replacement to fill the remaining two years on Bentleys term.  Bentley, who owns Oxford Cleaners says he plans to  open a second business, a high end furniture store in Oxford.



Riverside body identified 

Police have identified a man whose body was found in Riverside two weeks ago as a missing Georgia man and investigators believe that store security videos may help them solve his murder. St. Clair County Sheriff Terry Surles identified the man, who was discovered by two fishermen Jan. 3 in a wooded area near Interstate 20 in Riverside, as  61 year old Barry Alan Helling, of Snellville, Ga An autopsy ruled the man died from a single, small-caliber gunshot wound to the head. The sheriff said that Helling was last seen alive at about 8:15 a.m. Dec. 9 at his residence.  Surles said evidence suggests Helling met with one or more individual in the metro Atlanta area on the date of his disappearance after being invited or lured to that location, although investigators could not say for what reason. Transactions were posted on Helling’s credit cards in the Birmingham and Atlanta areas and in Port Richey, Fla., following his disappearance. Investigators obtained video footage of at least two different men using Helling’s credit cards at an assortment of retail locations in Atlanta and Port Richey. The men in the video footage are all described as white men in their 50s or 60s. A middle-aged white woman was seen with one of the men in footage at one Atlanta store. Investigators have requested the credit cards remain open in an attempt to track their usage. In one instance, a transaction was rejected, upon which Surles said the man attempting to use the card pushed his shopping cart out of the way, left the store and drove his vehicle out of the parking lot in reverse to avoid being identified by his license plate.  


Tyson announces layoffs 

Officials with Tyson foods say that they have eliminated 90 jobs at the companies Gadsden plant cutting the workforce at the plant back to 655 employees.  Gary Mickelson, a spokesman for Tyson said the layoffs were the  result of the company deciding to discontinue use of two assembly lines and to shift the work to another plant.  Mickelson said that the affected workers have been placed on a call back list.  The layoffs come on the heals of the company announcing several weeks ago that they would abandon their facility in Heflin, deciding not to rebuild the plant which was gutted by fire.
