The Evening Post: Ben Little’s Arrest


First the updated Olympic medal count.  Notice the United States and China is tied for first!  (as of 7/30 10pm central)

And the best Olympic moment of the day has to be Missy Franklin winning gold in the 100-meter backstroke, in a record 58.33 seconds.  Then she accepted her gold medal and seeing her crying was great!  And she is only 17 and goes to high school!  So she has inspired a lot of people here in America and she has a great future ahead of her!

Now on to The Evening Post and in no surprise fashion another city councilman from Anniston has been arrested.  Ben Little was arrested for his second time in the last year and charged with a violation of state law for allegedly exceeding his powers as an elected official.  Calhoun County Sheriff deputies served the warrant on Little today and here is his booking photo.

This makes it 3 out of 5 in the number of councilmen who have been arrested.  I am glad that the city election’s are coming in August.  I am planning to release seven questions to all 11 mayor candidates on Tuesday.  And I also want to have a one-on-one interview with the only candidate who is running against Ben Little in Ward 3.  Seyram Selase is a great candidate who has great ideas to turn Anniston around.  Go to his Facebook page at  And watch his 30 second campaign ad below!  I hope the citizens in Ward 3 are smart enough to vote Ben Little out!
