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.

U.S. Vs. McGregor et al

2:46 p.m. – The attorney for Milton McGregorquestioned a second legislator’s motives for cooperating with the federal vote-buying investigation last year.

Defense attorney Joe Espy tried to tie Rep. Barry Mask to the government’s first witness, Sen. Scott Beason, by noting that Mask placed a statement on Beason’s Facebook page over the weekend, following Beason’s testimony in the ongoing trial.

Scott they trashed you well my friend but you came through it all, yet you did the right thing,” Mask wrote. “You and I Judge (Benjamin) Lewis aren’t going to stand by and do nothing.”

Dothan teacher facing new sex charge

A Dothan teacher arrested last week on a sex crime charge involving a student now faces at least one additional charge for allegedly molesting the same 16-year-old male student.

Dothan police investigators talked about some of the evidence in their case against 30-year-old Calvin Bell-Tharpe at a bond reduction hearing Monday.

Attorney Shaun McGhee, who represents Bell-Tharpe, asked the court to reduce his client’s current $175,000 bond. Dothan police arrested Bell-Tharpe on Friday on a charge based on a recently enacted law of a school employee having sex with a student.

District Court Judge Benjamin Lewis said he would take the bond reduction request under advisement.

Attorney Shaun McGhee, who represents Bell-Tharpe, said his client is not a flight risk, and he had nearly a dozen relatives who attended the hearing.

We are waiting for the testimony of Senator Mask to continue. Senator Mask is being question by Prosecution Attorney Fega. The morning began at 8:00 with the Judge meeting with the attorneys and defendants "in camera" (in his library).

I apologize for the problems with my updates for Thursday afternoon. Some people were able to read them and some were not. I checked on three computers Thursday night and I could read the articles on all three. Friday some people in the office in Dothan could read them, some could not. When Brian finally reached me (I was off with one of my granddaughters) her was able to remedy the problem. I had posted the two with problems the same as I had all of the others. Hopefully that will not happen again. Thank you for your patience.

I did not know how much I would enjoy covering the Bingo Trials but as the testimony continues I am finding it very interesting. There is a lot of activity in the courtroom so maybe we will see the Judge enter shortly.

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Gov. Robert Bentley on Friday said he signed into law every one of the 40 bills the Legis­lature passed and sent to him on June 9, the last day of this year's regular ses­sion of the Legislature.

The bills included the state operat­ing budget for next year and plans dealing with state employees' pension costs, voter ID and abortion.

Each of the 40 bills would have died from a pocket veto Monday if Bentley had not signed it.

But Bentley said: "We've reviewed them. The bills are all acceptable and they all look fine to us. We were very supportive of most of the bills, and the others we had no problems with, so we signed them."

MONTGOMERY -- Gov. Robert Bentley on Friday said he intends to meet with Jefferson County commissioners and state lawmakers who represent the county to discuss options, including bankruptcy, for dealing with the financial problems of the county sewer system.

The county has a $3.2 billion sewer debt that it cannot repay, and earlier this year lost the use of an occupational tax that generated $66 million a year.

On Friday, county department heads placed 547 employees on administrative leave without pay to cut $12.3 million from the ailing county budget through Sept. 30.
