Store owner shoots robber 

A 29 year old Anniston man was shot in the foot Tuesday after attempting to rob a pawnshop on highway 202 in Anniston.  According to authorities,  29 year old Joe Lorenzo Shack of Anniston and two accomplices entered the  202 pawn shop around noon Tuesday and while the owner was at one end of the counter, shack allegedly attempted to pick up a glass case full of jewelry and run out the door.  The owner, armed with a 38 caliber pistol chased him into the parking lot where shack obtained a weapon from a car and scuffled with the pawnshop owner resulting in shack being shot in the foot.  He was taken to Regional Medical Center where he was treated and released.  Shack and 22 year old Tamika Green have been charged with first degree robbery while 26 year old Lakashiz Weed of Anniston has been charged with second degree robbery.


Surprises at Anniston Council Meeting

To the surprise of the majority of the Anniston Mayor and City council Tuesday night, Councilman Ben Little moved to add items to the agenda that his fellow council members said he had not discussed with them.   Little moved to require that the McClellan Joint Powers Authority be prohibited from taking any action on a proposed Government Bio-research lab without the prior approval of the Anniston City Council.  Mayor Chip Howell, a member of the JPA, explained that the issue will be brought for all parties involved, including the City of Anniston, to have input on the consideration.   Councilman Little also called for a moratorium on construction of an ABC beverage store in the downtown area between 10th and 18th streets on both Wilmer and Noble streets.  The councilman was advised by the city attorney that she was not sure they could legally do that as the ABC store was a state operated facility and that they were also dealing with property not owned by the city of Anniston.  City Manager George Monk also has issues regarding the ABC stores.  Some city Council members said they were disappointed that the issues had not been raised prior to their meeting, forcing them to take action without investigating the concerns.  A proposal to rezone Alabama highway 202 or West 8th street, which city leaders have called a gateway into Anniston, failed to pass the Anniston City Council Tuesday night.  Councilmen  Ben Little and Herbert Palmore voted against the ordinance while councilman Jeff Fink abstained because of an interest he has in property that would be affected by the vote.  Little and Palmore said they wanted to postpone the vote and wait for more information.  Mayor Chip Howell, who along with councilman Floyd Bennett voted in favor of the zoning request, said he was surprised that there were problems with the issue which he said other councilmen did not share,  The council cannot take up the rezoning request for a year, however city manager George Monk said that the ordinance could be rewritten in a way to allow council consideration sooner.  In the meantime,  the mayor says that zoning in the area will remain as is.  The zoning request had undergone two public hearings with no opposition expressed by affected property owners.  Tuesday nights action would have been the final approval of the rezoning request.



Oxford Council receives petition for red light at dangerous intersection 

The Oxford City council Tuesday night approved a change in the cities zoning law to allow second floor loft apartments in downtown buildings.  City officials say they hope the loft apartments can help to revitalize the downtown area.  The Oxford council also received a petition from residents calling for a traffic signal at the intersection of Friendship road and Leon Smith Parkway.  There were 263 signatures on the petition calling for the action at the intersection which has been plagued with a number of traffic accidents and at least one fatality.  Five accident have occurred at the intersection within the past two weeks.  Several options are being discussed including making the intersection a four way stop.


Georgia Judge orders teen released 

A Georgia judge on Tuesday ordered the release of the boy convicted in the 2004 slaying of 8-year-old Amy Yates, whose body was found by a creek near her family's Carroll County Georgia trailer home.The 14-year-old will be released from a psychiatric treatment center as early as Wednesday, said his attorney, Jerry Word.A Carroll County Georgia juvenile court judge ordered the release after learning an 18-year-old boy had confessed and knew details about the crime that weren't released to the public according to prosecutor, Pete Skandalakis.Skandalakis said he did not oppose releasing the boy, who will be placed on home confinement with an ankle monitor. Word said he plans to meet with Skandalakis and will turn over notes and other defense attorney investigation information. Skandalakis said he will then decide how to proceed.Yates was strangled on April 26, 2004,. Her body was found near the trailer park where she lived.Police initially suspected a 12-year-old boy who lived in the trailer park. The boy, now 14, didn't confess but made statements indicating he was present at the time of the killing, Word said.Based on that admission and a guilty plea, the boy was incarcerated, first in a juvenile detention facility and then in a treatment center. Though he pled guilty, the boy has said he did not kill Yates.In February, an 18-year-old-boy told police he was the one who killed the girl. The boy, who is diagnosed with mental retardation and an IQ in the 50's, lived in the same trailer park too, Skandalakis said.Last week, a juvenile court judge threw out the younger boy's plea, saying the 18-year-old's confession seemed reliable.The 18-year-old, Chris Gossett, has not been charged.
