Governor participates in Gadsden drug raid 

Alabama Governor Bob Riley got a first hand look at how drug dealers operate and live Thursday in Gadsden.  The Governor, wearing a bullet proof vest joined agents of the Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit as they raided the home of a suspected drug dealer.  The governor watched as agents entered the home of Mickel Lampley on Hillyer street in Gadsden.  Inside the home the governor found deplorable living conditions and two young children living in the home.  The governor then toured the county detention facility where he toured the only substance abuse program of it’s kind at the county jail.  Lampley was arrested on a drug distribution charge.  The task force served 100 warrants in Thursdays roundup which were based on a series of investigations conducted this year.  Agents said that at least seventy percent of the charges were for distribution and trafficking in meth and crack cocaine. 


Anniston Councilman wants Attorney Generals Opinion 

In a case of city hall fighting city hall, Anniston city councilman Ben Little says he wants the state attorney generals opinion on whether Anniston City Manager George Monk had the authority to issue pay raises to officers in the Anniston Police Department.   City Commissioners discussed the raises during a council retreat earlier this year, Little, however did not attend the meeting.  Both Monk and City Attorney Polly Russell say that the issuing of the raises falls within the city managers duties as established by the Anniston Council Manager Act.  The raises were give using funds appropriated for unfilled positions in the police department.  Little is contending that Monks actions should have been approved by the city council in a public meeting.  To obtain an opinion from the attorney general the city council would have to approve a resolution approving and seeking the opinion. 



Calhoun County applies for Block Grant 

Calhoun County Commissioners Thursday gave the go-ahead to seek a community development block grant for a project to clean up the west end area of Calhoun county.  Calhoun County officials say that if approved, the grant will be a big help in cleaning up a blighted area.  During a public hearing on the grant, Anniston Mayor Chip Howell supported the grant, pointing out that the closing of Ft. McClellan caused a significant drop in the cities population which left some two thousand homes that have now become substandard.  Calhoun County will be competing with other counties across the state for the grant money which was a program that faced major budget cuts from the Bush Administration.


Boaz Mayor wants city tax holiday 

The mayor of one of Alabama’s best known shopping cities wants to join the state in waiving sales taxes on back to school items.  Boaz Mayor Tim Walker said he wants Boaz to waive its 3 percent sales tax during the first weekend in August.  Governor Bob Riley signed a bill this week that creates a statewide sales tax “holiday” each year during the first weekend in August.  The bill waives the states 4% sales tax on purchases made on certain clothing items, computers, software, school supplies and books.  The Governor encouraged all cities and counties to waive their sales taxes during the weekend but left it up to the local governments to decide if they wanted to participate.
