Fight is on to save funding for Anniston Army Depot 

The Army’s proposal to cut over a half billion dollars in funding for the Anniston Army Depot came under fire in Washington Wednesday.  Senator Jeff Sessions questioned top Army officials about the proposed cuts, which he said would slow repairs on hundreds of armored vehicles returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, and possibly creating hundreds of civilian layoffsThe proposed cuts include 1.2 billion dollars from the Abrams tank production line affecting the Anniston Army Depot as well as the Lima Army Tank Plant in Ohio.  The plan also calls for 1.5 billion dollars in cuts for the repair of Bradley Fighting Vehicles.  Senator Sessions said he feels that funding for the Anniston Army Depot can be saved…  The senator said he is concerned that the proposed cuts would not only affect the Anniston Depot and it’s workers, but could also prevent our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan from receiving necessary equipment. 

Councilman says pay raises will haunt council 

A member of the Anniston City Council says the cities recent action giving pay raises in the police department was not done properly.  City Commissioner Benjamin Little said the matter should have been brought before the city council in an open meeting for discussion and a vote.  While Little says he does not object to the raises, but he does have a problem with the way it was done.  While the action may not affect this years budget, Little says it could have a major impact on next years budget.   The city used funds earmarked for unfilled positions to give city police officers a five percent pay raise.  Members of the City Fire Department have been picketing city hall because of the move, claiming that they too should be entitled to a similar increase. 

FBI investigation continues 

As the federal probe into alleged corruption in Gadsden city government continues, those involved in the investigation are being tightlipped about their work.  A Gadsden radio station is reporting that a member of the city council had heard from the FBI that Gadsden developer Jason B. Stinson wore a wire as part of the federal investigation.  A court filing by city attorney Roger Kirby last month said the FBI is looking into actions of public officials and others in regard to the Lafferty’s Landing Project.  Stinson is a partner in Rainbow 1 LLC, which is planning to the develop the Lafferty’s landing shopping center on Rainbow Drive in Gadsden.  Gadsden Mayor Steve Means said this week that he has confidence the federal authorities will conduct a thorough, professional and unbiased investigation.  Means said that he has confidence in the honesty of all of the city officials and employees.  The mayor said like most people in the city, he is frustrated and anxious to learn the results of the federal investigation. 


teen arrested in robbery and assault 

Talladega police have arrested a 17 year old juvenile in connection with Mondays robbery of the Frank Curry Shopping Center.  Talladega Police Chief Alan Watson said that the suspect entered the store and beat owner Sadie Curry several times in the head with an unknown blunt object.  Investigators interviewed several witnesses at the scene allowing them to identify the suspect.  The suspect, whose name was not released, will have his initial court appearance later this week.  

Former Ragland Councilman convicted of molestation 

A former Ragland City Councilman was convicted yesterday of molesting a 12 year old girl.  A St. Clair county jury found 35-year-old Myron Timothy Yarbrough guilty yesterday of one count of first-degree rape and three counts of first-degree sodomy of a child.  A 14 year old girl testified Tuesday that Yarbrough had raped and sodomized her over a period of six or seven years.  The girl testified the molestations began when she was 5 or 6 and continued until she turned 12.  Yarbrough testified in his own behalf Wednesday denying the allegations.  Yarbrough had resigned as a member of the Ragland City Council following his arrest in October 2004, just three weeks after being sworn into office.  Judge Charles Robinson will sentence Yarbrough on May 9th. 

industry to expand 

A company that came to Gadsden two years ago has announced the construction of another plant at the Gadsden Airport industrial park that will employ 60 to 80 people.   Prince Metal Stampings USA will construct the auto parts plant at the airport park later this year with completion slated for December.  CEO Donald Rodzik said that the new plant would utilize state of the art production equipment and methodologies.  Officials say the city promised their normal incentives, such as abatement of non-educational taxes, site preparation assistance and cost reduction assistance. Rodzik said he was impressed with Gadsden’s unified local approach to attracting new business.
