Skateboarders robbed in Anniston 

Anniston police are investigating the robbery of two skateboarders in a Noble Street parking deck.  According to police reports, the 19 and 20 year olds were skateboarding in the parking deck when two men with a gun robbed them of their cash and a cell phone.  The victims described the robbers to police and authorities said the description of one of the men matches the description of a man that police are seeking for three Waffle house robberies and the robbery this week of an Exxon station in Anniston.  Neither of the two skateboarders were injured in the incident.

  

State School Board asked to investigate concerns in Anniston Schools 

The Anniston School Board has been accused by some employees of violations of suspension, expulsion and due process procedures at Anniston high school last spring.  Employees also say the system has violated special education testing, counseling and reporting requirements.  The system is also alleged to have failed to report serious incidents to police as required by law.  As a result,  the board, on a split decision approved asking the State department of education to investigate the allegations.  State officials say they will be interviewing city school system employees when the board members decide they want it done.  The letter sent to the State by the school board requested that a representative be sent to Anniston to meet with employees to allow them the opportunity to speak anonymously about their matters of concern regarding the leadership in the school district.

  

Munford man charged in theft of trailer load of metal plating 

A load of metal plating stolen in Gadsden this month has been recovered at an Anniston machine shop, and a man has been charged with stealing the 47,000-pound load.  54 year old Kenneth Haynes,  of Munford, has been charged with first-degree theft, according to Gadsden police detective Brandon Teague.

Teague said The load was owned by Tricon Metals in Irondale, and a truck driver from Etowah County was hauling the load for Alabama Carriers.  Teague said The truck driver unhooked the tractor from the trailer and left the load parked at the BP station on Alabama 77 near Interstate 59 on June 3 while he spent the night at home. He was scheduled to take the load to Texas the next morning.

Haynes is accused of backing up to the trailer and driving to the machine shop in Anniston, where he sold the load to the machine shop owner. The trailer and the metal plate are worth about $210,000.  Teague said detectives received information that the metal was at the machine shop and got assistance from detectives with the Anniston Police Department.  Teague said they also were assisted by Arlon Reed of the Centre Police Department, who had previously charged Haynes with unlawful manufacturing of crystal methamphetamine.

Teague said he and other detectives had information that Haynes was appearing in court in Calhoun County last week on a charge of fraudulent use of a credit card at which time he was arrested.

  

 

Georgia Senators battle for more water  

Georgia's two senators, Republicans Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson, said they got a commitment Thursday from the Secretary of the Army that future releases from Chattahoochee River reservoirs - including Lake Lanier, Atlanta's main source of drinking water - will be based on science.  The two senators met with Army Secretary Francis Harvey to express concern about low water levels in the reservoirs at the start of what is expected to be a hot, dry summer.  Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue told Harvey in a letter earlier this month that unless the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers scales back releases, the reservoirs "will be drawn down to their lowest level in recorded history." The Corps contends it must release more water to sustain endangered mussels and sturgeon downstream in Florida.  But Perdue said he didn't think the needs of endangered species should outweigh the drinking water needs of the 4.7 million people living in the Atlanta metropolitan area.  In a conference call with reporters on Thursday, the senators said Harvey had directed the Corps to conduct an environmental study, a process that could take 18 to 24 months, to determine the full impact of the releases.  Isakson said he and Chambliss had three requests: that the Corps reconfirm its commitment to the environmental study, that the Corps complete a new water control plan for the Chattahoochee River and that the Corps stop lowering reservoir levels without a sound scientific basis.  Georgia, Florida and Alabama have been wrangling since about 1990 for a fair share of water from the Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa and the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint river systems. Water is a critical natural resource, necessary to sustain life and economic growth.  The senators said federal officials want the governors of the three states to meet and bring an end to the tri-state water war.  Of the two basins, the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, Flint seems to be the most hotly contested.  The Chattahoochee flows southwest from Atlanta to form the border between Georgia and Alabama. The Flint and Chattahoochee converge at Lake Seminole in extreme southwestern Georgia to become the Apalachicola River, which flows through the Florida Panhandle to the Gulf of Mexico.  Mike Quiella, Isakson's senior legislative assistant, said the Corps is using an outdated water control plan to manage the Apalachicola, Flint and Chattahoochee rivers - one that doesn't reflect the changes that have occurred over the past 20 years.
