The Calhoun County legal establishment received an UNPRECEDENTED warning FROM THE BOSS during the recent storms, in which the court house annex was literally STRUCK BY LIGHTENING. Apparently, removing GOD from the Court House is frowned upon by the powers that be. In an attempt to communicate to the Calhoun County “authorities” that they have overstepped their bounds in assuming their great importance and falsely acted in GODS place thereby overruling his laws, damage to the court house annex was kept to a minimum. This warning, if it continues to be ignored, will most likely result in future lightening strikes to the court house itself, if not much worse damage. “Vengence is mine”, sayeth the Lord.

LIGHTNING STRIKES CALHOUN COURTHOUSE – Annex Building Damaged
Direct strike on chimney dislodges cut stones.
Calhoun commissioner Rick Sampson examines
damage by stones to porch roof and furniture.
A direct lightning strike to a chimney on the Calhoun Courthouse annex (old jail building) yesterday evening sent cut stones flying.
There was disruption of power in the building and some problems with computers, but there was no fire, said Grantsville Volunteer Fire Department officer, Dave Johnson.
A storm swept through the area, bringing much needed rain at 7 p.m.
Risk posed for traffic and pedestrians on back street with
several of the historic building’s slate shingles destroyed.
Grantsville residents saw the flash and heard the strike. Pieces of the chimney fell to the street behind the courthouse and rolled down the roof, crashing through an aluminum porch awning.
Pieces of the original slate roofing shingles were also damaged on the historic building.
County commission president Rick Sampson said he hopes shingles matching the original ones can be found.
