Father’s body found after son has premonition

Daniel Vinson disappeared Wednesday. His body was found a day later, after his son had a premonition. The 60 year old was heading to church when police say his motorcycle ran off the road in Stockton, Alabama.

DJ’s father had driven off the highway, about 15 miles from the camp. It’s a steep drop off and because you can’t see much from the road, no one knew the grandfather of four was down here. But DJ sensed it, and told his uncle, Thomas Donald. “He had a premonition, told me to look here and thats where I came to look. That’s the first thing I did, was look here. He was right, the premonition was right.”

Stockton couple given break in fraud case

A federal judge in Mobile on Friday calculated advisory sentencing ranges that would have sent a Stockton couple convicted of fraud to prison for more than 10 years.

After hearing from relatives and friends of Michael Laird Hyatt, 51, and Pamela Lynn Ganey Hyatt, though, U.S. District Judge William Steele decided those sentences would have vastly exceeded the crime. He sentenced Pamela Hyatt to a year and day in prison for bankruptcy fraud and ordered Michael Hyatt to prison for five years.

Prosecutors contended that the Hyatts sought to wipe away their debts in a series of bankruptcies and then lied about their income — including tens of thousands of dollars from gambling winnings that they listed on tax returns — to conceal assets from more than 70 creditors.

Stockton’s Stagecoach restaurant feeding ThyssenKrupp

German steelmaker ThyssenKrupp AG promised 2,700 permanent jobs when it chose north Mobile County as the site of its first North American steel plant.

At the time, a “conservative” estimate of the potential economic impact indicated that 4,300 more non-ThyssenKrupp jobs would emerge in the wake of the company’s $3.7 billion investment in southwest Alabama.

Overstreet’s newest employees are living proof.

Lunch for ThyssenKrupp has become a regular part of the Stagecoach workday. The food is prepared in Stockton but served up on site — about 100 lunches a day.
