Man shot to death
The son of a former Morgan County
District Judge was shot to death Wednesday night. According to
Anniston police 21 year old John Bibb and at least one
acquaintance were walking from a car to enter a home on the 100
block of East 22 Street at about 6 p.m. Wednesday night As they
neared the house, a man approached them and drew a gun. Bibb was
living and working in Anniston, according to his older brother,
Sloane Bibb. The men had apparently just returned from a
work-related meeting. The two men began to run from the armed man,
who fired at least one shot that struck Bibb in the back. According
to Sloan, the bullet hit his brother beneath the left shoulder. Bibb
passed away at the hospital later Wednesday night.
Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin is
awaiting a courts decision on how he should move forward with
issuing permits for electronic bingo operations in the county. The
sheriff says he has filed suit against South Carolina
based CBS Supply and Gadsden-based Coosa Entertainment Group. The
county commission voted last week to draft a development agreement
with Coosa. However, Entrekin says both developers have applied for
a charity bingo permit. Entrekin also said he has received many
inquiries from “mom and pop” operators also interested in permits.
The Etowah County Commission has approved strict rules for the
operations requiring that Anyone issued an electronic bingo permit
be able to make an investment of 200 million dollars in a
development and create two-thousand-jobs.
Heflin runoff gets
a little more crowded
Certification of the recent election
results in the city of Heflin has left city council
Place 2 incumbent councilman Johnny Heard in a three way runoff
with Robby Brown and Carlton McDaniel. In the recent municipal
election, Heard received 115 votes to Brown’s 63, creating a runoff
between those two candidates. McDaniel received 62 votes. However,
following counting of provisional ballots last Friday and McDaniel
receiving one more vote, the second place tie created a situation
which now places all three candidates back on the ballot for the
Oct. 7 runoff.
