Anniston man shot 

An Anniston man is recovering at Regional Medical Center after being shot early Tuesday morning.  Police say that Roosevelt Parker Jr. was shot shortly after 5 Tuesday morning in the 2200 block of McCoy Avenue in Anniston.  Police said that the identity of the shooter is not known and that a handgun was used in the shooting.  Police said the shooting remains under investigation.

   

Three Anniston teens found at McClellan 

What started out as a Monday afternoon walk to catch crawdads for three Anniston teens, turned into an unwanted adventure for the youths.  The three became lost in the woods of the Longleaf Wildlife Refuge at McClellan.  12 year old Jeremy Allen, 14 year old Chase Bowerman and 16 year old Jonathon Sanders were returned home Tuesday  afternoon after they walked into a manned range control building on McClellan.  Authorities has seached for the boys throughout Monday afternoon and Monday night.

 

Piedmont man arrested during Jacksonville burglary 

A 37 year old Piedmont man is in the Calhoun County Jail under a $72,000 bond.  Kevin Morris was caught by Jacksonville Police early Wednesday morning in the process of burglarizing the West Point Grocery on Alabama highway 204.  Police said that Morris hid from officers then came out swinging a lug wrench at them.  Morris is charged with first degree burglary, resisting arrest, possession of burglary tools, obstruction of justice by using a fake ID, and two counts of second degree assault.  Wednesday burglary was the fourth at the store in the last three weeks.

 

 

Avondale Mill employees to get federal assistance 

Displaced Avondale Mills workers will be getting a little help from Washington.

Avondale employees have been approved to receive Trade Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance from the federal government to help them with the transition to new careers.

U.S. Reps. Spencer Bachus and Mike Rogers had asked that the matter be expedited, and Avondale’s request for assistance was officially approved Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Labor. The initial request for federal assistance was made June 2, shortly after Avondale announced its plants in Sylacauga and Pell City would be closing July 25.  Avondale spokesman Stephen Felker Jr. said the company was appreciative of all the support it had received from the congressmen over the years and their efforts to obtain federal assistance were equally appreciated.   Rogers and Bachus recently met with Assistant Labor Secretary Emily DeRocco in Washington and wrote to Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao encouraging them to approve and expedite Avondale’s application.  In the letter, they said global competition — especially from countries such as China — had made it increasingly difficult for Alabama textile manufacturers to compete.  On May 22, Avondale announced it would be closing its local operations, leaving more than 1,300 residents in Talladega and St. Clair counties looking for new jobs.  The TAA funds will provide up to two years of federal assistance to the local Avondale employees. The trade assistance may be used in job search assistance, relocation assistance, job training, income support and as a health coverage tax credit. Employees eligible for ATAA might also be eligible for a wage subsidy. The benefits will be distributed through state and local agencies.  All employees of the local mills are eligible for the assistance, but they must apply individually for it at the local One-Stop Career Services Center, which can be found at www.servicelocator.org.

Felker said that, in addition to the federal assistance, Avondale is continuing to work to make the transition easier for its employees. The Alexander City and Rockford plants were sold to Parkdale Mills, saving about 400 jobs.

Felker also said there is a potential buyer for its trucking division. If that deal goes through, close to 100 people will retain their jobs.
