Cherokee County Murder

A Saturday evening shooting in Cherokee county has left one man dead and a Centre man charged with murder.  Authorities say that  James Maurice Henderson was found dead at a residence on Cherokee County Road 472 near 8:30 Saturday night. Rodney James Hood of Centre has been charged with his murder. Upon arriving at the scene Saturday night, Cherokee county sheriffs deputies discovered a Henderson,  with what appeared to be gunshot wounds. The Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences also responded to the scene to assist with processing the scene and evidence collection. Hood had fled the scene and was later taken into custody at another location. Hood is being held in the Cherokee County Detention Center with No bond.  

 

 

Fort Payne Socks 

The decision over whether to slap tariffs on socks from Honduras would seem like a no-brainer for sock makers in Alabama who have been struggling under a flood of foreign imports, forcing layoffs and closing mills.  But as the federal government ponders just such a trade sanction - a bit of a backtrack from the free trade principles of CAFTA - the Fort Payne sock community is divided. No longer local small-town, family-owned all-American companies lobbying for protection, the industry in Alabama has registered a mix of support and opposition for the sock tariff. Some of the locally owned companies with long histories in DeKalb County say the three-year tariff, about 13.5 percent, would return Honduran imports to pre-CAFTA prices and give their domestic socks, made with higher labor costs, a fighting chance to compete. More starkly, they say that without it, they'll die. Conversely, those who embraced the Central American Free Trade Agreement by moving some aspect of sock production offshore are lobbying against the tariff. The textile office within the U.S. Department of Commerce launched its own investigation into whether Honduran socks are unfairly flooding the market and crippling the domestic makers. Originally scheduled to decide this month on the tariff, the office is now expected to rule by Dec. 19. In the meantime, dozens of industry representatives and government leaders have filed written arguments. Canada-based Gildan, with manufacturing facilities in Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Haiti, recently bought V.I. Prewett & Son, which included a conglomerate of mills in Alabama. The result is that people a few months ago who might have backed the tariff are now working for a company that is a leading opponent. The mayor of Fort Payne, known as the "Sock Capital of the World," said he's seen employment in the industry cut in half in recent years, and 1,200 jobs have been lost since CAFTA was passed in 2005.

 

Pine Beetles 

Alabama landowners battling pine beetle infestations during the prolonged drought have until December 21st to apply for federal funds available for those who qualify.    Forester Arthur Hitt says the U.S. Forest Service funds, administered by the Alabama Forestry Commission, will be awarded once the approved forest thinning practices by the private landowners are completed.    Thinning of dense, slow-growing pine stands will stimulate growth and vigor in young stands and reduce the threat of the southern pine beetle -- the number one killer of pines in Alabama. Epidemic populations of the beetle occur virtually every year in Alabama. Unmanaged and overcrowded stands of loblolly and shortleaf pines are susceptible to attack. 

 

The National Guard Youth Challenge Academy 

The National Guard Youth Challenge Academy at Ft. McClellan is looking for young men and women looking for a challenge to better their futures.  Academy public relations officer Lisa O’Day says that the new class will begin in January   The second class of cadets from the academy will be graduating on December 15th which their future goals already on target.  For information or to obtain an application for the academy you can visit their website at www.ngycp.org  or contact  Lisa O’Day at 256-847-6148.  Funding for the program is provided 60% by federal funds and 40% by the state of Alabama.
