Court Square, Andalusia


MONTGOMERY, Alabama — An Alabama death row inmate has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to stop his execution scheduled for Thursday evening at Holman Prison in Atmore.

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- Mississippi investigators say robbery appears to be the motive behind the fatal stabbings of a Fulton, Miss., couple who once lived in Huntsville.

Fred Doyle House, 77, and Mildred Joy House, 79, were found inside their home Friday by their son, Tom House. Jack Carpenter, 29, a neighbor, was arrested Saturday in Russellville on two charges of capital murder.

The Houses lived in the Huntsville area in the late '60s and early '70s when Fred served as a minister at Madison Church of Christ, said friend and church elder Jack Gross.

VA To Deploy Mobile Counseling Center to Dothan

Motor Coach Brings Services Closer to Veterans

WASHINGTON – A state-of-the-art mobile counseling center for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Vet Center program will travel to Dothan, Alabama on April 8 & 9, 2011. It will be stationed at the 6th annual Tri-State BBQ Festival and open to assist Veterans with information, benefits and other services.

“Our widespread distribution of this fleet from coast to coast marks a new chapter in VA's innovation to reach rural and underserved veterans with high-quality readjustment counseling,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. James B. Peake.

This vehicle is based out of the VA's existing Birmingham Vet Center, enabling the center to improve access to counseling by bringing services closer to veterans.

The 38-foot motor coach, which has spaces for confidential counseling, will carry Vet Center counselors and outreach workers to the Tri-State BBQ Festival to reach veterans in broad geographic areas, supplementing VA's current Vet Centers.

Vet Centers, operated by VA's Readjustment Counseling Service, provide non-medical readjustment counseling in easily accessible, consumer-oriented facilities, addressing the social and economic dimensions of post-war needs. This includes psychological counseling for traumatic military-related experiences and family counseling when needed for the veteran’s readjustment.

These vehicles can also be used to provide outreach and direct readjustment counseling at active-duty, reserve and National Guard activities, including post-deployment health reassessments for returning combat service members.

The Tri-State BBQ festival takes place at the Houston County Farm Center in Dothan, AL, on Friday April 8th from 5:00 pm- 10:00 pm and on Saturday April 9th from 10:00 am- 10:00 pm. For more information on the festival visit
