Supreme Court outlaws sweepstakes gaming 

Law Enforcement officials began closing down internet sweepstakes businesses across the state Friday afternoon shortly after The Alabama Supreme Court ruled that  the video sweepstakes games are illegal gambling devices no different from Read 'em and weep...slot machines. The 8-0 decision reversed a ruling by Jefferson County Circuit Judge Scott Vowell, who said the operation known as “MegaSweeps” at the Birmingham Race Course was not a lottery and did not involve the use of slot machines or gambling devices.  Calhoun County officials wasted no time shutting the businesses down Friday afternoon.  District attorney Jo Hubbard issued a public notice near 4:30 Friday ordering that all of the operations be shut down immediately.  Hubbard said that failure to cease operations of the machines immediately will result in the arrest of those having responsibility for their use.  Calhoun County Sheriffs Deputies visited each of the gambling establishments Friday afternoon and immediately shut them down giving the owners one hour to remove their machines or face arrest.  In it’s ruling, Hubbard said the high court determined that the Sweepstakes readers, integrated as they are with the servers, central database and related computer equipment are slot machines as that term is defined by Alabama law.  Hubbard warned operators that anyone who continues to operate will face criminal prosecution.

Ragland drivers complain about paving

Eight miles of bad road are causing trouble for drivers in Ragland.  State Transportation Officials hoped repaving Highway 114 would save money and extend the life of the road. Highway 114 is the main road connecting Ragland with Gadsden and Anniston.    Motorist in St. Clair County say the repaving didn’t help the ride. Residents say that, if anything, it probably hurt the ride.     Residents have also reported a tar-like substance sticking to cars and truck that use the road.     Ragland Mayor Gary Daffron took resident’s complaints to state transportation officials who said the road was paved an older way to save money and rain messed up the surface.     Adding to the anger of Ragland motorists, the road on the other side of the St. Clair/Calhoun County Line was paved with normal asphalt.    Department of Transportation officials called the project an “experiment” and said that the site was chosen because of the low amount of traffic in the area.    The Gadsden-based Construction Company who conducted the paving is offering to wash cars affected by the surface.
