    Arrest the biker bar owners. We could turn this into a formal petition. But seriously, why does Century and Flomaton have to be such a criminal magnet. Why!!!

    Saturday I turn 79. I look back to when I was 4 and 5 years of age and living in Century. I Remember the grown ups
    talking about people being knifed and beat up at this same Odom’s bar on hwy 29. I can’t imagine why this place has not been closed and torn down. I pray that it will before things worse take place.

    Glad that caught up to Mr. Perry, AKA Gorilla. Seems that he either deactivated his Facebook page or deleted it around the time he was wanted. Any bets that his fellow Saints/Outlaws knew where he was at?

    I see he was far from Florida………,like the chicken he is, he ran! The only way he could win a fight is five or six against one. Either way, he’s the loser!

    The State needs to step in and shut down Odom’s and the other biker bars that are owned by the same person.
