Obstruction Gov. Ops.  $7,500

 

 

A woman who is 8 months pregnant, her husband and a friend were brought out safely early this morning after they became stranded along a nearly dried-out part of the Escatawpa River in west Mobile County, authorities said.

The U.S. Coast Guard identified the woman as 23-year-old Tessa Simms. The USCG said a MH-65C helicopter airlifted Simms from the scene to an awaiting medical team in Mobile.

Simms, who the Coast Guard said had gone nearly 12 hours without food or water, was taken to an area hospital.

The husband and friend, who were not identified, were evacuated safely after Mobile County Sheriff’s Flotilla personnel walked upstream on the nearly dried out river bed, Mobile County sheriff’s spokeswoman Lori Myles said.

According to Myles, authorities were first alerted that the group was stranded about 9:30 p.m. Saturday. The rescue was completed by 1:30 a.m., she said.

The group was stranded slightly less than 2 miles north of the U.S. 98 bridge, where the Escatawpa passes from Alabama into Mississippi, according to Myles.

The surprise resignation of Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Sue Bell Cobb was a political bombshell that, nearly two weeks later, is still reverberating through the state’s legal community.

Cobb’s June 29 announcement has confounded her friends, delighted her foes and touched off a spirited, behind-the-scenes battle among some of the state’s most powerful political players to fill her coveted seat.

Cobb’s departure, effective Aug. 1, also delivered an unexpected gift to Gov. Robert Bentley early in his first term. But for Bentley, who has sole authority to name Cobb’s successor, it’s a political plum with strings attached.

The Tuscaloosa Republican faces a looming deadline and escalating pressure to identify his choice for one of the state’s premiere jobs. A spokeswoman for Bentley said Friday that the governor "would like to appoint someone as soon as possible after the vacancy occurs on August 1, but he will not be limited by a timetable."

MOBILE, Alabama -- University of South Alabama police are investigating a fatal stabbing in a dorm room on campus, and reported taking a suspect into custody.

Details about the identity of the dead person, a male, had not been released as of mid-afternoon.

Police Chief Zeke Aull emphasized that the slaying involved people who knew one another and was not the result of a random crime.

In custody was a man named Brandon Ashkan Ajizadeh, who is a student at the Mobile university, according to campus police.

WASHINGTON, DC Friday, July 8, 2011- U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Department of Education has awarded $5,411,597 in Educational Talent Search Program grants to Alabama Community Colleges.

“Investing in the education of young Americans is of primary importance,” said Shelby.  “These grants will help advance some of Alabama’s brightest students from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure that young people who have the potential to succeed in institutions of higher learning have the opportunity to do so.”

Of the $5,411,597 awarded, the following institutions received funding:

· $629,380 to Alabama Southern Community College

· $314,436 to Alabama State University

· $314,962 to Bevill State Community College/ Walker

· $257,769 to Bishop State Community College

· $321,964 to Central Alabama Community College

· $314,319 to Faulkner University

· $578,601 to Gadsden State Community College

· $256,146 to Southeast Alabama Education Outreach Center

· $303,243 to University of South Alabama

· $342,901 to Wallace State Community College/ Hanceville

The Educational Talent Search Program identifies and assists individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education.  The program provides academic, career, and financial counseling to its participants and encourages them to graduate from high school and continue on and complete their postsecondary education.  The program publicizes the availability of financial aid and assists participants with the postsecondary application process.  The program also encourages persons who have not completed education programs at the secondary or postsecondary level to enter or reenter and complete postsecondary education.

5:05 p.m. – Jarrod Massey concluded his testimony Friday by talking about his interaction with defendants Jay Walker and Sen. Jim Preuitt.

Massey said he knew Preuitt to generally support gambling legislation. However, as a procedural vote approached, Massey believed Preuitt was not supporting bingo legislation. Massey said he and Jay Walker had a conversation on March 2 in which Walker floated the idea of buying trucks from Preuitt’s car dealership in Talladega.

Massey then called Gilley to talk about the idea. Gilley asked for Preuitt’s cell phone.

Then, on the morning of March 3, the date of a scheduled procedural vote on the bingo bill, Massey asked his employee, Jennifer Pouncy, to make up a story about her job being connected to passage of the bingo bill.

11:04 Judge Thompson is listening to more arguments from Attorney Seagull about the timeliness of the admission of evidence. Judge Thompson is talking about the factors he will consider the 88 exhibits as well as the 2 exhibits that are now before the court. Mr. Seagull is saying that they had a whole process for trying to determine the truthfulness of transcripts.

Ms. Wood is now giving her arguments.

(Mr. Massey stated early that he was not aware the McGregor was paying Crosby $3,000 a month.)

Mr. Massey attempts to speak  to Judge Thompson privately. Judge Thompson says you have to ask it out loud…not just to me. Massey tells Ms. Wood that he did not completely identify all of the participants in regard to two questions she asked him. Ms. Wood tells Mr. Massey that they can handle that.

Before we move on to the next topic Mr. Massey I just want to follow up on a couple of things about why you continued to work on the legislation with the group? We could be more successful working together even though we did not have all the same goals..

(MONTGOMERY)--Attorney General Luther Strange announced a $92 million multi-state settlement with JP Morgan Chase & Co. (“JPMC”) as part of an ongoing nationwide investigation of alleged anticompetitive and fraudulent conduct in the municipal bond derivatives industry.

As part of the multistate settlement, JPMC has agreed to pay $65.5 million in restitution to affected state agencies, municipalities, school districts and not-for-profit entities nationwide that entered into municipal derivative contracts with JPMC between 2001 and 2005. In addition, JPMC agreed to pay a $3.5 million civil penalty and $6 million in fees and costs of the investigation to the settling states.

This settlement creates a fund that will be operated by a claims administrator, as with previous settlements reached with Bank of America and UBS AG, a multinational Swiss bank. The claims administrator will notify harmed entities that are eligible to opt-in to the settlement. Participation in the settlement is not mandatory or binding upon any party that chooses not to join. The states’ recoveries will not be known with accuracy until eligibility criteria are verified and eligible entities choose to participate in the restitution fund.
