Piedmont Man charged with attempted murder 

Hokes Bluff police have charged a Piedmont man with attempted murder after he allegedly caused another motorist to wreck Saturday afternoon on U.S. 278.  Hokes Bluff Patrolman Tim Dail said the warrant was served Tuesday morning on 20 year old Warren Brogdon of a Gannon Road address in Piedmont, which is an address inside Etowah County.  Bond for the attempted murder charge was set at $50,000 and Brogdon remained in custody Tuesday in the Etowah County Jail where he had been since his arrest Saturday night at his home.  Officer Dail said that Brogdon left the scene of what initially was thought to be a hit and run accident, however once officers arrived, they quickly determined that it was not an accident tby was intentional.  Officers would not release the victims name as a concern for repercussions.  Brogdon allegedly drove his vehicle behind the victim’s, got alongside it and ran it off the road.  No one was injured but the victim and the occupants of his vehicle were taken to the hospital to be checked out.  Brogdon has also been charged with two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment related to the victim having passangers in his vehicle at the time of the wreck. Dail said that the victim and Brogdon apparently were involved in an ongoing dispute.


City of Anniston seeks reconsideration of ABC Store location 

Opposition continues to mount over the proposed opening of an ABC Package store in downtown Anniston.  Local business owners are concerned about the plan and have been expressing their concerns to the Anniston City Council.  According to City Manager George Monk,  the councils attorney has found a statute that the council hopes may prevent the store locating in the downtown location.  Monk said the statute involves the store’s proximity to certain offices.  Anniston currently does not have an ABC store.  There are ABC locations in both Jacksonville and Oxford.



Cities take actions to curb Sweepstakes Gaming 

With no action in the legislature this session to address video sweepstakes operations in Alabama, both the cities of Oxford and Anniston are taking measures to protect and regulate such businesses in their cities.  In Oxford Mayor Leon Smith said the city will not issue any more business licenses for operators of video sweepstakes in the city.  Smith said that Oxford is not a gambling town, and they don’t want it to be a gambling town.  Smith said they will not issue any more licenses until a decision is received from the State Supreme Court on a current appeal to a Birmingham judge’s ruling declaring the sweepstakes operations legal.   Meanwhile, the Anniston City Council took a somewhat different approach increasing the licensing fees for the sweepstakes machines to five thousand dollars per machine per year plus 10% of proceeds earned from the machines.  The new ordinance increasing the license fee per machine takes affect immediately.


Anniston Councilman pushes for smoking ordinance 

Anniston city councilman Ben Little is pushing a campaign to adopt a smoking ordinance in the city of Anniston.  The city council in their planning session Tuesday night discussed three separate proposals, including one adopted by the city of Jacksonville.  The council has asked the city staff to create a document outlining the differences in each ordinance including penalties and fines.  The council agreed to discuss the ordinance in a planning session on May 15th.  In the regular meeting Tuesday, Councilman Ben Little pushed for action on the ordinance, saying he supported a strong ordinance to prohibit smoking in the city.  One of the ordinances being considered would prohibit smoking in any public place in the city either indoors or outdoors.  Councilman Floyd Bennett thinks the city should continue working with Oxford on a unified smoking ordinance, citing that Anniston is ahead of the game in that the city has had a smoking ordinance for many years, and that the only problem appears to be with restaurants.  Bennett said he is reluctant to tell a restaurant owner he cannot allow smoking.  Bennett said that patrons have the right to decide not to enter a restaurant that allows smoking and the restaurant owner has the right to prohibit smoking in his or her business.  The council is expected to take action either for or against a proposed ordinance in their meeting on May 23rd.
