Pell City woman charged with murder in son’s death 

A Pell City woman whose 5- year-old son was killed in a Tuesday morning traffic accident has been charged with murder.  41-year-old Vicki Howard was taken to the St. Clair County jail Wednesday after being released from UAB hospital.  Assistant District Attorney Lamar Williamson said that evidence showed that Howard was drunk when her pickup ran off the road striking a tree on Camp Creek Road some five miles south of Pell City.  Her 5 year old son, Andrian Chance Howard was killed in the accident.  Williamson said that he would ask that she be held without bond.  Howard pleaded guilty on March 20th to public intoxication and was sentenced to two years probation.  If convicted, Howard could face 10 years to life in prison.


EPA approves temporary site for storage of PCB contaminated soil 

Faced with a lack of storage space for contaminated soil, the Environmental Protection Agency has agreed to allow the storage of PCB contaminated soil to be temporarily stored at a site off Monsanto road.  The actions came after the current site at 10th street and Cyldesdale Avenue has reached its capacity of 36 thousand cubic yards.  EPA officials say the 10th street site is full to capacity and will now be capped.  The EPA approval of the Monsanto road site allows for no more than four thousand cubic yards of soil containing no more than 10 parts per million of PCB’s to be temporarily stored on the site.  Solutia officials say the new site should be enough space for about six weeks of soil.  A permanent site for the contaminated soil has not been determined; however a proposed site is located north of the new temporary site on Monsanto Road.  That site is under review by the EPA.  The recent EPA action follows the March 20th objections of community members to expanding the capacity at the 10th street site.


Houseboat ban bill revised, only includes 3 lakes 

Only three Alabama lakes will be affected by the latest version of a bill that would ban houseboats and other large boats from the lakes.  Eight other lakes were dropped from the legislation after boat owners, marina owners and others spoke out against it.  Senator Lowell Barron of Fyffe said Wednesday that lakes Harris, Martin and Weiss remain in the bill.  The others, including Logan Martin Lake, were removed from the bill.  The bill would ban houseboats, all other boats longer than 30 feet 6 inches, and boats longer than 26 feet 11 inches that can exceed 60 mph.  Sailboats are exempt as well as houseboats already in place.  With just six meeting days left in the legislative session, Barron said he did not know if the senate would vote on the bill which he said has no more than a 50-50 chance of passing.


JSU student arrested in tailgate thefts 

21 year old Jacksonville State University student Devin Michael Boyd created an internet business on e-bay where he sold pickup truck tailgates.  There was one problem, police say that the college student was getting his inventory by stealing them off of vehicles for several months.  Police say the student had amassed over $38,500 dollars worth of tailgates.  Police say that the tailgates were taken not only from the Jacksonville and Calhoun County area but also in Jefferson County, Fort Payne and Phoenix city.  Police say they recovered 35 tailgates at Boyd’s home on Belmont circle in Jacksonville and have charged him with two counts of second degree receiving stolen property.  Officials say he is expected to face additional charges as the investigation into the thefts continues
