Calhoun Deputies make arrest in burglary 

Calhoun County Sheriffs Deputies have made an arrest in connection with the Monday morning burglary of Steward’s Market on Alabama Highway 9.  The burglars used a small pickup truck taken from an Anniston business to break through the front door of the store causing approximately $6,000 in damage as well as taking a quantity of cigarettes.  Sheriffs Department Investigators received a tip which led to the arrest of 18 year old Jeffry Edward Beardon of Anniston.  Beardon has been charged with Burglary and several counts of theft of property.  Investigators said their investigation is continuing and it is possible that Beardon may face additional charges.


Oxford council hears residents views of smoking 

Smoking, or non smoking,  that is a decision being pondered by the Oxford city council.  Council members heard Tuesday night from some 45 concerned citizens during a public meeting at the Oxford City Hall.  The council wanted to receive public input before considering any change in the cities current smoking ordinance.  One ordinance being considered by the city is one adopted in Prattville which requires restaurants to either be smoking or non smoking.  Many of those at the Tuesday night meeting are the same people who pressured the Anniston city council to ban smoking in the city.  Several at the Tuesday night meeting told the council that while they were against smoking,  they did not support the government infringing on peoples rights.  The council has not set a timeline for consideration of a new smoking ordinance.


 Worker killed in construction accident 

Authorities say that a Heflin man was killed Monday in A construction accident on the Eastern Parkway near Henry Road in Anniston.

Officials said that 31 year old Michael Leonard McVey, of Heflin, died when a dump truck turned over on him.   Calhoun County Assistant Coroner Marvin Southard said that McVey died of blunt-force trauma to the abdomen and chest and was pronounced dead at 4:47 p.m. Monday.  



Gadsden seeks elected school board 

The Gadsden City Council approved a resolution Tuesday asking the county's legislative delegation to pass legislation allowing a referendum on an elected city school board.  The Legislature is not expected to meet again this year unless a special session is called, so any decision would be up to the new legislative delegation that takes office after the Nov. 7 general election.
Under Alabama law, the change to an elected board from an appointed board requires approval of the Legislature.  The Legislature either can call for a referendum or it can pass legislation to allow a city council to call for an election. Legislation for Gadsden to go to an elected board was introduced in 2004 by Rep. Craig Ford, D-Gadsden, but died because of a feud between Ford and Rep. Jack Page, D-Gadsden, over another bill that Page wanted to pass but Ford opposed.
