Testimony this afternoon in the State House vote-buying case focused on a ledger that tracked Milton McGregor's contributions to political action committees.

The bookkeeper for Fine and Geddie and Associates lobbying firm testified that two contributions to Rep. Barry Mask, R-Wetumpka, originally were listed on internal records as coming from McGregor. But she later changed the records to indicate that the money came from other clients.

Prosecutors have accused lobbyist Bob Geddie of obstruction of justice claiming he falsified the ledgers that were turned over to a grand jury. But Geddie's lawyer suggested the ledgers were corrected because of an honest mistake that was caught and fixed within days.

KKK flyers have authorities on watch

It’s been more than a decade since the last Ku Klux Klan rally in Houston County. But the recent distribution of more than 40 KKK flyers has local authorities on the watch.

Houston County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Donald Valenza said there were 33 Ku Klux Klan flyers distributed to homes across Houston County over the past week. Valenza said there were reportedly 16 flyers distributed at homes in Gordon and 17 in Kinsey. Valenza said someone apparently threw a paper flyer wrapped around some gravel with a rubber band into the yard of area homes.

Dothan Police Sgt. Rachel David said the Dothan Police Department received eight similar reports from over the weekend of flyers which promoted the KKK. David said the flyers were considered hate crimes, and would be investigated by the FBI.

On 06-20-2011 Huan Doan turned himself in at the Marianna Police Department on a warrant issued for his arrest on 4-13 2011 on the charge of aggravated stalking.  The suspect had been aware of the warrant for the last two months, but had fled the area and the state to avoid arrest.  He did however become aware that the Marianna Police Department had asked the United States Marshal Service to assist in locating and making an arrest no matter where he might hide.

2:31 pm. Court Resumes with Mr. Junkins.


You saw me come into your office and interview people involved in this case. Did you just panic when you were asked who your lawyer was? You got a call from somebody, I think you said the FBI? Either that or ABI..You told them I was your lawyer? Yes sir that was the only name I could think of. You just kind of panicked on that question? Yes sir.

I am not sure when I received it but I do remember when I received it I thought I only have two weeks to gather that information. And did you gather that information was it to the best of your knowledge that you gathered all of those documents? Yes maam.

And do you realize that Mr. Geddy is charged with obstruction of justice for intentionally turning over falsified documents to the Grand Jury? I don’t know that. Every writing on those ledgers is in your hand. Did he tell you change any of those ledgers in preparation for getting those ledgers to the grand jury? No sir not that I remember. Let’s start with Great Southern. On the last entry on that page from Tel Pac. Can you look at this ledger and tell me when you made that entry? Either on February 15 or in the next day or two. The next entry was on February 18 so I did that entry between the 15 and the entry on the 18. Did Mr. Geddy or anyone else ever tell you to go back and change that entry? No sir.

Mitchell Carroll is going to have one heck of a Father's Day.

Carroll's wife, Heather, gave birth to sextuplets Saturday between 8:05 and 8:08 a.m. at Brookwood Medical Center. All six babies were healthy, doctors said, and ranged from 1 pound, 10 ounces to 2 pounds, 5 ounces.

"All of them were born very healthy and that weight spread is a good sign that there was not one baby that was lagging behind, that all of them had grown and developed well," Bill McKenzie, Carroll's OB/GYN, said Saturday. "I'm extremely proud of Heather."

Carroll was 28 weeks and one day pregnant when she gave birth by Caesarean section, meaning the sextuplets were about 12 weeks early. The 30-year-old from Dallas County had been on bed rest at the hospital for weeks awaiting the birth, which brings the family's count to nine, including their almost-2-year-old son, Grant.

Moody's Investors Service said today that Jefferson County's financial weakness might wind up damaging municipalities such as Hoover, Homewood and Mountain Brook.

The New York-based company, which evaluates the creditworthiness of companies and governments, said in a statement that Jefferson County serves as the property tax collector for cities within its borders. Customarily, Moody's said, Jefferson County distributes property tax collections to the cities every month.

ELBA,Ala. --

A probation officer’s visit to a residence in Elba Friday led to the arrest of two men on drug trafficking and manufacturing charges.

Coffee County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Ronnie Whitworth said the arrests occurred after a probation officer went to check on someone under his watch, and a Coffee County sheriff’s deputy decided to travel with him.

As they entered the Brunson Trailer Park residence, they discovered a “full-fledged meth lab,” Whitworth said. He said officials confiscated “all the components” necessary to make methamphetamine, including oils.
