Judge Monk announces retirement 

After serving 28 years on the bench, Judge Samuel Monk announced Monday that he is retiring and withdrawing his name from the race for circuit court judge throwing his support behind assistant district attorney Brian Howell who is now the only democratic candidate for the Circuit Judge 7th circuit, place 2 which serves Calhoun and Cleburne Counties.  Monk said he had considered retiring in the past but with no other viable qualified candidate he made a decision to continue to serve.  Monk, in a prepared statement, said he had considered retiring this year to pursue other interests, however he said an individual, “whom he and many others considered unsuited to hold judicial office” publicly announced his intention to run.  Defense attorney Ray Bryan, a republican is the only other candidate to qualify. 


Jacksonville Council discusses Senior Center 

The Jacksonville Mayor and Council held discussions on the future of the Senior Center Monday night,  coming away from the table with a decision on how much money they are willing to spend, but split on where to spend it.  The council agreed to spend no more than a half million dollars on the center, but a number of alternatives were placed on the table.  Some council members want to relocate the center to the Union Yarn Mill where they have discussed also moving city hall and the library.  Mayor Johnny Smith said Monday night that he feels it is narrowed down to three alternatives.    City Councilman Jeff Shelton said he has a problem with the mill property, but regardless, Shelton says it is time to move on the project.  The City Council finance committee will meet on April 20th when they hope to have cost estimates on several of the proposals and hope to make a decision on the senior center location.


Jacksonville considering raises for court officials 

It has been 1999 since the prosecutor and public defender in the City of Jacksonville have received a raise.  The Jacksonville mayor and council plan to remedy that problem.  The two positions do not fall under the same criteria as city employees as they are contracted by the city.  Mayor Johnny Smith said that the Council seems to be in agreement with increasing their compensation.  The council is scheduled to vote on the increases when they meet again later this month.



New Rescue truck to benefit entire area 

Members of the Jacksonville fire department have been undergoing training to man a new state of the art urban search and rescue truck.  According to Jacksonville Fire Chief Michael Daugherty, the truck will not only benefit residents of Jacksonville, but the entire areaThe Jacksonville Fire Department will be working with the state and Calhoun County thru a mutual aid agreement which will allow the new unit to respond to rescue emergencies throughout the area.
