Joint Powers Authority votes to put McClellan in running for Federal Biological Research Facility

Former Employee shoots former Boss 

An argument between a former employee and his former boss Monday afternoon resulted in the former employer being shot in the back of the shoulder and the hip.  Authorities say that 58 year old Edward Kyttle, owner of A & B Mobile home repair was shot at a location on the Bynum Leatherwood Road early Monday afternoon.  He was taken to Regional medical center where police say his injuries are not considered to be life threatening.  25 year old Jason Pruitt of Anniston has been charged with attempted murder.  Pruitt is a former employee of Kyttle.  The shooting took place at the site of a controversial junk care and truck collection on property owned by Douglas King which he says is the home of a future salvage yard.  Calhoun county recently declared the property a nuisance and has voted for abatement of the property.  County officials say that could take some time to accomplish.  Police say that Pruitt allegedly followed Kyttle to the property as he was out running errands and fired several shots at his former boss hitting him twice.   When police arrived Kyttle was able to tell them the shooters name and Pruitt was arrested a short time later. 

 

 

Two Local Schools given wrong status after scoring errors

A scoring error by a standardized testing company changed accountability reports for 14 schools, putting four on probation when the actually met their goals for reading and math, another 10 schools got passing marks that they did not earn.  State education officials said Monday that the mistake by Harcourt Assessment Inc. affected nearly 2,500 students in grades 3-8 in 589 schools.  An independent firm has rescored the tests and found that 14 schools were placed in the wrong category.  Four schools had been placed on the statewide needs improvement list when they had actually made adequate yearly progress which is a major part of proving accountability under the federal no child left behind act.  C. L. Salter Elementary School in Talladega is one of the four schools wrongfully forced to offer student transfers or tutoring services.  Ten other schools achieved statues due to an error when they should have been on the needs improvement list.  On that list of ten is Raymond L. Young Elementary School in Talladega and Saks High School.  State education officials say the status of the four adversely affected schools will be reflected on state issued report cards that will be released next month.  The ten schools that weren’t supposed to get their average yearly performance statues will not lose it.  The testing error was reported to the state school board in December after it was discovered by a local school board when they noticed that one students test scores were inaccurate and an investigation found that the test results for over 2,400 students were wrong.

 

Jacksonville Mill recommended for National Register 

The Alabama Historical Commission Review Board has approved Profile Mill and the surrounding mill village in Jacksonville for placement on the National Register of Historic Places.   The recommendation now goes to the National Park Service in Washington for consideration.  The Park Service must approve the nomination within 45 days for it to become official.  The old mill closed in 2001 after operating in Jacksonville for 95 years.  Jacksonville city officials say they home the nomination will help to lure developers to remodel the other buildings while many hope it will also spur movement on a proposal to turn the old mill into a senior housing development.  The historic designation would bring tax benefits to those who decide to develop and restore the area.

 

Cedar Bluff names new Councilman 

The Cedar Bluff Town Council on Monday appointed Forrest Pearson to fill the council seat left vacant when Martha Baker became mayor earlier this year. The appointment was made during a special council meeting. Baker, who was elected to the council last year, became mayor after Donald Sanders resigned in January. Sanders said the position needed someone who could devote more time to it than he could. Sanders works full time for the Cherokee Electric Cooperative. Baker had previously served two terms on the council. Sanders replaced the late Bob Davis, who resigned last year, saying he had made mistakes. Cedar Bluff town government was the subject of a federal investigation that found several improprieties including the improper removal of firearms from the Police Department and forged checks. Council and Mayor Baker have said they are trying to get the town back on track. Council has put into place stricter controls on spending. All city cell phones have been returned and credit card limits have been lowered. At last week’s regular council meeting, building inspector Jimmy Wallace reported that building permits are up over last year, and the town will soon get its first condo development.
