Calhoun County Republicans rally behind Salmon 

Calhoun County republican leaders are rallying behind George Salmon, winner of Tuesday’s Republican nomination for Calhoun County Probate Judge.  Party leaders held a press conference Thursday afternoon at the Calhoun County Administration Building in Anniston where Salmon received the endorsement of both of his republican opponents in the primary, Rex Smith and Joe Dobbins both encouraged their supporters to vote for Salmon.  Salmon thanked his opponents and said he is up for the challenge. Salmon will face Democrat Alice Martin in the November general election to replace retiring Probate Judge Arthur Murray. 


Anniston school system facing deficit 

The Anniston city schools are expected to end the fiscal year with a $680,000 deficit, draining the systems reserve account to just nine hundred thousand.  The state requires the system to maintain one month of operating expenses in reserve, which for Anniston is about 1.3 million.  The board is considering a proposed budget which includes a new roof at Golden Springs Elementary and an ROTC program and new gym floor at Anniston High School. But the bottom line is the system would be spending about $178,000 more than it takes in next year.  An issue that concerns school board members.  Board member Bill Robison is wondering why the may cut of 30 jobs to save 1.2 million did not have a greater impact on the systems finances.  The school system will hold a public hearing on the budget at 6pm on August first.



Governor coming to Jacksonville Monday 

Gov. Bob Riley and state school Superintendent Joseph B. Morton will address more than 100 government and community leaders along with 250 educators at Jacksonville High School - site of the general session of the Alabama Math Science Technology Initiative summer institute - on Monday.  AMSTI is the Alabama State Department of Education's initiative to improve math and science teaching statewide. AMSTI training is for K-12 public school teachers and administrators who were selected by their school systems.  The general session will be from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Jacksonville State University President William A. Meehan and state Board of Education member Stephanie Bell also will address participants.  Jacksonville State University's In-Service Education Center is one of eight regional in-service centers providing AMSTI training.  The summer institute, which is under way and will continue through July 28, will have 250 participants from 75 public elementary, middle and secondary schools primarily in Northeast Alabama.   


Next round of chemical weapon disposal set to begin at ACADF 

A team of Anniston Chemical Activity employees completed the moving of obsolete rockets containing nerve agent VX from storage igloos to the Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal Facility yesterday.  The palletized rockets were strapped to a tray and placed in an Enhanced on site sealed container.  Disposal operations of the rockets may begin as early as this weekend.  Initially, the Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal facility will be slowly and methodically processing M55 rockets, all of which will be monitored by representatives from the Alabama Department of Environmental Management and treaty inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.
