Jacksonville City Council stands firm on smoking ordinance

The Jacksonville mayor and city council decided that their current smoking ordinance did not need to be amended, as the city council failed to act on a proposal to lower the standards for the filter systems necessary to allow smoking in a city business.  Jacksonville Fire Chief Michael Daughtery recommended to the council that they not revise the smoking ordinance as he had determined that there are at least 35 companies that manufacture the hospital grade filtration systems required under the existing ordinance.  According to Mayor Johnnie Smith, that is all the council needed to hear.  Smith said that the proposed revision came about because of concerns that the filter systems were not readily available, but the fire chief’s report resolved those concerns.  Chief Daughtery said that enforcement of the ordinance to ascertain if a filter system meets the ordinance requirements will be a big headache for his department.  Officials reported no problems with enforcement of the ordinance, which went into effect on Feb 14th


Talladega Store Robbed

Talladega authorities are searching today for a suspect in a Monday evening robbery and assault at the Frank Curry Shopping center.  Police say a young black male entered the store and struck the proprietor Sadie Curry over the head and fled out the back of the business with an undisclosed amount of money.  Curry was transported to Citizens Baptist Medical Center where she was treated and released.  The suspect is described as a young black male who was wearing dark blue clothing and was last week running down Avenue H toward Six Points.


Calhoun County Probate Judge Retires after 30 years in office

Calhoun County Probate Judge Arthur Murray will not be seeking a sixth term as probate judge.  The 74-year-old Murray is prohibited from seeking the office because of the states age limits on judges.  Already five candidates have filed to seek the office and qualifying for Democratic contenders does not start until Saturday.  Murray has been elected to the post for five six-year terms since being appointed by Governor George Wallace in 1975.


Judge issues 30-day timetable in hotel tax challenge

Etowah County Circuit Judge William Rhea III has given both parties thirty days to prepare final arguments and depositions concerning the legality of a $1.50 per night lodging tax that would provide funding for operations of a proposed convention center.  The tax was approved in May 2005 by the legislature and has been challenged by Etowah county motel owners who claim the tax was invalid because it was not properly advertised.



Gadsden man charged with attempted murder of wife

Gadsden police have charged 26-year-old Zachary Roberson with attempted murder in the November 2005 shooting of his wife.  Police say the incident has originally been ruled as an attempted suicide, but evidence later showed that the gunshot was not self inflicted and supported an attempted murder charge.  Kristy Roberson was left in a coma after the shooting but continues to improve.  The shooting happened at the couple’s home on Mayfield Drive in Gadsden on November 15th when Robertson is alleged to have shot his wife in the head.  Zachary Robertson is held on a ten thousand dollar bond as well as a hold on a previous charge filed by a probation officer.
