Suspect arrested in Ragland murder
Authorities in Etowah county have arrested a
49-year-old man in connection with the weekend shooting death of a
Ragland man. The man was taken into custody at a house about two
miles from the abandoned house where the body of 51 year old Terry
Lacane Trammell, was found. An Oxford man and some young boys who
stopped at the house in the Sand Valley area on U.S. 431 discovered
the body about 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Trammell was reported
missing sunday but was last seen on Wednesday. According to Etowah
County Sheriff Todd Entrekin, It is believed the victim had been
dead several days, and it appears he was killed in the same area
where he was found. Trammell's car was found in the parking lot at a
nearby convenience store. Entrekin said sheriff's department
investigators and agents with the Etowah County Drug Enforcement
Unit were working the case when an agent got a tip that led to the
arrest of the suspect.
Alabama power appeals tree ruling
Two Jacksonville residents will continue their
battle to save their trees when they head back to court. Alabama
Power has decided to appeal the earlier decision by Calhoun County
Circuit Judge John Thomason. The judge will hear the power
company's argument on June 16 at 1:30. On March 18, Thomason issued
a ruling that blocked the power company from cutting down trees on
the property of Jacksonville residents Barbara Wilson and Rufus
Kinney. The ruling denied the power company's request that Wilson
and Kinney be prohibited from chaining themselves to trees near
their yards to prevent the trees from being removed. Thomason also
ordered that the power company not trim the trees more than had been
its practice in the past. Alabama Power had argued that the trees
should be removed because their branches are under power lines,
posing a danger. The motion filed April 17 asks the judge to amend
his findings from the case, prohibit Kinney and Wilson from blocking
the power company's effort to cut the trees and rescind his previous
injunction that spared the trees. Power Company spokeswoman Gina
Warren said the company needed to file the motion to keep the case
open while its attorneys consider other legal options. She said the
company still believes the trees could jeopardize the company's
ability to get power to customers. The hearing is set for 1:30 p.m.
on June 16 in Thomason's courtroom.
Munford Lincoln school vote
Voters in the Lincoln and Munford school
districts will go to the polls tuesday to decide whether they want
to continue paying the special school district five-mill tax.
Officials emphasise that the vote is not for a new tax but to
decide whether to continue the existing tax.Supporters of continuing
the tax say that because of population growth, all three schools in
Lincoln need additional space. So far the five-mill tax has helped
to fund the building of the new school facilities in both Lincoln
and Munford. Statistics released by the Talladega County Board of
Education said the average homeowner will continue to pay $25 more
in taxes annually with the tax renewal. People who are in either of
the two school districts can vote at the polling place they use in
elections on Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
