Anniston Man killed in Sunday shooting 

A 21 year old Anniston man was killed Sunday afternoon when a dispute apparently turned violent.  Assistant Calhoun County Coroner Marvin Southard said that Stanley Sims died from a single gunshot wound to the shoulder from a revolver.  The shooting happed shortly after 3 Sunday afternoon in the 1900 block of Wilmer Avenue.  Anniston police have arrested 50 year old James Gilley of Anniston, charging him with one count of murder.  The coroner said he was unsure whether the victim and Gilley knew each other.  Sims had just been freed from prison on March 28th after pleading guilty in February to second degree burglary.  Sims was sentenced to 15 years in prison but was ordered released on March 28th on five years probation. 

 

GSA Investigating Anniston City Hall Site for Federal Courthouse 

The Federal General Services Administration has placed a hold on a project to construct a new federal courthouse on the site of the current Anniston City Hall.  The problem is whether any of the property is in a 100 year flood plane.  The GSA has hired an independent architectural firm to study the site and issue a final report which is expected in the next couple of months.  City leaders are concerned as the new courthouse project also impacts several other proposed projects, including relocating City hall.  City officials dispute that the property is in the floodplain.  GSA officials say that if the city hall property cannot be used, they will seek another site in the central business district. 

 

 Anniston extends airport least to 25 years 

The city of Anniston has agreed to extend the existing lease of the Anniston Municipal airport held by Anniston Executive Aviation to twenty five years.  The action came after the company which had leased the airport property from the city announced they have been acquired by Anniston businessman Earlon C. McWhorter and other local residents.  The new lease, which officials say took several months to negotiate, will add the passenger terminal facility to the leas to accommodate additional aviation related activities which are planned at the Anniston airport.  The Anniston city council enthusiastically entered into the agreement in anticipation of realizing the vast and untapped potential for future economic development at the airport with the substantial financial commitment by Mr. McWhorter and his associates.  Officials say that based on the financial and legal commitments that have been agreed upon, the construction of new hangar spaces at the airport as well as the potential for the addition of aviation related maintenance facilities, a flight school, an air charter operation, a restaurant and the possibility of located an air freight facility at the airport.  Mr. McWhorter, who serves as president of McWhorter and company, has assembled a group of individuals from the aviation industry to promote the development and future growth of the Anniston airport.  Joe Escue, a former pilot with Delta Airlines will become the airport manager, Rodney Findley and Scott Wallace will also be a key part of the day to day operations at the airport.  Anniston resident Patrick Cushman has been named Vice-president and secretary of Anniston Executive Aviation which will be renamed McWhorter Properties-Anniston Aviation, Inc.  The Anniston Municipal airport is the third busiest airport in north Alabama, surpassed only by Birmingham and Huntsville.  The airport is the subject of a pending multi million dollar grant application with the FAA to relocate the airports transponder to the north end of the airport property to provide an upgraded approach zone to the runway.

Hundreds of Civil War re-enactors converged on Janney Furnace Park in Ohatchee this weekend for the annual re-enactment of the Battle of Ten Islands.  Saturday’s battle, which was scheduled to begin at 2pm started thirty minutes late after an ambulance was called to assist one of the soldiers whose horse had apparently, fell on him.  The man, who was not identified, was taken to the hospital where he was treated and released.  The battle went on with the south winning the battle sending union soldiers retreating into the woods.  Battles were held both Saturday and Sunday.  Janney furnace has been developed into a historic site by Calhoun County with a memorial to Calhoun County Confederate Veterans.  The furnace, which still stands on the site, was built in 1863 to make munitions for the confederacy.  Union forces blew the chimney off the furnace stack and burned the supporting structures in 1864.
