Corps of Engineers hold open house on Sibert cleanup 

Residents will be able to learn about the Army’s plans to search for chemical weapons at the former Camp Sibert during an open house Thursday.  The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host the meeting Thursday from 3 to 5 p.m. at their project field office on Pine view Circle in Rainbow City.  The Corps will have displays and exhibits related to the upcoming removal action on land that formerly comprised the military base.  Army contractors have been in an area around Duncan Farm Road in Steele for the past few weeks.  According to Pat Robbins, public affairs officer for the Corps’ Mobile District said the set-up and training process will take several weeks.  He said actual digging and clearing work is not expected to begin until late April.  The agency expects to spend about $30 million during the next five years to find and destroy chemical weapons, if there are any, on 128 acres near Steele.


Alabama Senate approves constitutional amendment for smoking ban 

Alabama voters would get to decide if they want to ban smoking in all public restaurants and bars in the state under a proposed constitutional amendment approved by the state Senate on Tuesday.  The senate voted 26-7 to approve the proposed amendment that would ban all smoking in bars and restaurants, except on outside decks and patios.  The proposed amendment would permit smoking in private clubs.  The measure is now headed to the Alabama House of Representatives for a vote.


Developer seeks help in naming Lincoln lakeside development 

Plans for a $292 million development in Lincoln are under way but the company responsible for the development is still without a name, and it’s prepared to offer a cash prize to find one.  Shoreline Real Estate of Carrollton, Georgia, which plans to break ground on the development as early as mid-summer, is offering a thousand dollars to one person in Talladega County who submits the best name for the 160 acre development on Logan Martin Lake.  A committee consisting of local officials including Lincoln Mayor Lew Watson, will decide the winning name.  The company says that the name must reflect the feeling of a resort-style lakeside community which will feature 950 condominiums, town homes and single family homes, private boat slips for each home, a state of the art marina, a restaurant, four pools, walking trails, a boardwalk and clubhouses throughout the property.


Anniston man charged in theft of Dinosaur head at Auburn 

Two men have been charged with the theft of a 350 pound replica of the skull of a Tyrannosaurus Rex that had been displayed in the lobby of an Auburn University academic building.   Auburn police have charged 22 year old Scott Brock of Auburn and 23 year old Andrew Michael Benton of Anniston with criminal mischief in connection with the theft.  Police said the dinosaur head was taken from its mounting on the evening of December first from the lobby of Petrie Hall.  Two days later a work at Indian Pines Country Club found the replica on the side of the road just past the golf club entrance.  Officials said the skull suffered 10 broken teeth, three of which were recovered, as well as cracks apparently caused when it was being removed from the mounting.  The skull was purchased from the Black Hills Institute and is an exact replica of the famed STAN T. Rex which was discovered in 1992.  The replica was originally purchased for $10,000 but officials say the current replacement value is $15,000.
