Talladega Body identified as that of missing Anniston man 

Officials have identified a body found in the Talladega National Forest May 29 as that of an Anniston man who had been reported missing a month earlier.  Lt. Mike Hubbard with the Talladega County Sheriffs department said that the body was identified as 27 year old Gary Dale Schlichter, of Old Coldwater Road in Anniston. Hubbard said Schlichter had been reported missing April 29, after the spring race at the Talladega Superspeedway, which family members said he planned to attend. As far as investigators know, he was last seen alive in Anniston the Wednesday before the race.  Hubbard said Schlichter had died of multiple gunshot wounds to the face and chest. He does not appear to have been shot in the Talladega National Forest where the body was found. Hubbard said Tuesday the forensic examination was still incomplete, so it was too early to tell how long Schlichter had been dead before his body was found.


CDP may cancel county contract 

Some workers at McClellan’s Center for Domestic Preparedness may have to re-apply for their jobs as the center is considering ending an agreement with the Calhoun County Commission. The center, a unit of the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security, trains emergency workers from around the country. When the Department of Justice opened the center in 1998, more than 20 management and support jobs were effectively outsourced to the County Commission. The county was able to hire the workers more quickly than the federal government. Control of the center eventually was shifted to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.

 The workers fill a variety of jobs at the center, including secretarial, logistics, and management work. Beyond the convenience for the federal agencies, the county benefits by earning 10 percent of the total payroll of the employees, between $130,000 to $150,000 annually, Joiner said.  According to a spokesperson in the office of Senator Richard Shelby who is on the Senate Homeland Security Committee,  whether to continue the interagency agreement is at the discretion of the local agency.  If the agreement is cancelled it would force the workers hired under the agreement to re-apply for their jobs thru the federal government, placing them in the pool of thousands of people seeking federal jobs.


Voters approve amendments 

Governor Bob Riley Called it a Great Victory for Alabama after Alabama voters by wide margins Tuesday decided to let the state borrow an extra $400 million for industry recruitment and to ban spending from two trusts on anything but health care for retired teachers and other retired public employees. Voters agreed to add Amendment 1, on industry incentives, and Amendment 2, on the health-care trusts, to the state constitution. State lawmakers in March unanimously proposed both changes.  While Voter turnout statewide was about 9.6 percent of active registered voters. Calhoun County Probate Judge Alice Martin said Tuesdays turnout in Calhoun county surpasses expectations.  Approval of Amendment 1 means a commission chaired by Riley can borrow $750 million for industry recruitment, up from the old limit of $350 million. Money borrowed by the commission is repaid from a fund that gets some of the royalties the state collects on natural gas pumped offshore.  


Calhoun County corrections officer arrested 

A corrections officer at the Calhoun County Jail finds himself on the other  side of the bars today. Corrections officer James Rutledge was arrested last week after being caught smuggling tobacco and other contraband into the jail. Sheriff Larry Amerson said that while investigating that incident, other charges came to light involving the theft of a car stereo from a vehicle in the departments impound yard.  Rutledge is charged with promoting prison contraband and breaking and entering an automobile. both of which are felonies.
