Over the Memorial Day weekend the Covington County Sheriff’s

Office deputies were busy helping stranded boaters on the county

rivers.

The first rescue was around 10 p.m. on Saturday night when a

local couple was boating down the Conecuh River from the Brooklyn

Bridge towards Harts Bridge. The couple stopped on a sand bar about

half way down the trip when the boat got loose from them and drifted

down river. The subjects were able to contact help with their cell phone.

Sgt. Lamar Stokes and Sheriff’s Posse member Joe Barton hiked into

the area where the individuals were and assisted them out to the road at

around 3AM. Later in the morning Sheriff Reserve Deputies

Stacy Davis assisted the owner in retrieving his boat.

 

Sunday night at around 9pm Deputies received a call about over due

boaters on Yellow River in the Wing area. When deputies arrived on

County Rd 4, the caller advised he had dropped off 3 females and 2 males

from the Baldwin county area at the bridge on Open Pond rd. He advised

that they had made the trip before. A local citizen advised deputies that he

heard people screaming for help off of Forest Rd 337. Upon arrival

deputies had to climb down an embankment and cross the river to the other

side and traveled downstream until they made contact with the subjects.

They advised that one of the subjects, a 16-year-old female, was having a

severe asthma attack. Advanced EMS was dispatched to area for the medical

call. Sgt Lamar Stokes and Posse member Joe Barton assisted the individuals

to the area where the deputy’s patrol car was to meet with their family

members. The asthma victim was transported to Andalusia E.R. Reserve

Deputy Jeremy Williams also assisted.

 

Sheriff Dennis Meeks advised that if you are going to be traveling on the rivers

this summer, take flashlights, water, and a way to communicate in the event

you become stranded. Also, use caution due to the fact that all rivers are

down due to the lack of rain.

NEWTON – Changes in police leadership in Newton are nothing new, and the man the town council recently terminated from the police chief’s job has been in the same position before.

Newton Mayor Ted Stanford said the council terminated Keith Rinehardt from the chief’s position because of a conflict with the hours of his second job. The town’s interim chief is now former Chief John Beistline.

According to Stanford, the council hired Rinehardt knowing he had a second security job, but the council was not aware the second job would require Rinehardt to work daytime hours.

Stanford said the second job would leave the town without a police chief from the morning to as late as 2 p.m. on at least three days a week, which posed an issue for the council. The council is the hiring and firing authority of the town, Stanford said.

Stanford said Beistline will serve as an interim chief until the town employs an active chief. Beistline resigned from the chief’s job in 2009 after accepting employment elsewhere.
