Animals Among Us? Shall We Call Cook's?

Perhaps Tony Logan should call Cook's Pest Control; after all, they specialize in getting rid of pests. Tuscumbia seems to have more than its share recently.

The possum killers? We had their ages as 14 and 16, while today's news lists them as 16 and 17. We still don't have their names. All comments to us are totally confidential. Help us expose these little demons.


Two family pets were poisoned this weekend in Davis Estates in Tuscumbia. If you have any information about the perpetrators, call Tuscumiba Police or Anthony Wilbanks at Colbert Animal Control at (256) 381-4073. Let's put these dog killers away for a long time.



Some Tuscumbia cretins are already scheduled to go away for a nice rest. One of our readers writes:

A Colbert County man pleaded guilty to producing child pornography between 1997 and 1998, announced U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, and Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in Charge Ray Parmer.

CHARLES MARK MCCORMACK, 54, of either Nassau Blvd. Muscle Shoals or 602 Keller Lane, Tuscumbia, AL, pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography before Chief U.S. District Court Judge Karon O. Bowdre. Sentencing is set for April 3 in Huntsville. Anyone concerned with seeing this monster receive his due judgment, email Judge Bowdre at and express your desire for him to be punished to the fullest extent of the law, which is 20 years.  

It is incredibly disturbing that this kindergarten teacher was engaged in the production of child pornography,” Town said. “I thank the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and HSI agents who worked with federal prosecutors for their quick efforts which prevented more innocent victims from suffering at the hands of McCormack. The Bureau of Prisons has bed space reserved for people like him.”

According to admissions made in connection with his guilty plea, between Aug. 1, 1997, and Oct. 15, 1998, McCormack used a minor, born in 1992, to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions of the conduct, by videotaping the minor urinating in a bathroom in his Colbert County home. During a May 2016 search of McCormack’s residence, law enforcement also discovered images of nude and topless females believed to constitute child pornography and a suitcase containing young girls’ panties.

McCormack should receive a very warm welcome from the inmates at his new address. Maybe McCormack and Jeff Eddie (former HPBC children’s director) can be bunk mates. 


We hate to inform our reader and others of this, but Mark McCormack will be going to federal prison. That means much better food and general conditions than one finds in our state prisons. Yet that also means a much longer time to wait for any parole conditions. A prisoner in the federal system usually has to serve 85% of his sentence before being granted an early release.

On the other hand, while McCormack and "Bro. Jeff" can't be bunk mates (Jeffrey Dale Eddie is a state prisoner), the former Baptist youth minister is not living too high on the prison hog:

It won't hurt to write some letters protesting Bro. Jeff's parole either...
