Attorney General calls for action on gambling

As a third sweepstakes operation opened over the weekend in Calhoun County, State Attorney General Troy King (Picture Left) is calling for action to stop the operations.  In Anniston Monday night for a meeting of the Calhoun County Republican Executive Committee, King said that the citizens must speak up.  King we suggested that the governor call the legislature into special session to address the issue.  Two sweepstakes operations opened up in Oxford in the last sixty days and another has opened up in unincorporated Calhoun County over the weekend.  Both Oxford and Anniston have addressed the issue thru the issuance of business licenses.  The county however does not issue business licenses making it virtually impossible to regulate.

  

YMCA Finalizes deal to move to Oxford 

 Officials with the Calhoun County YMCA say they have reached a deal to move their headquarters to Oxford.  In a release Monday the YMCA announced that the two sides have agreed on the lease of 24 acres off Leon Smith Parkway for a dollar a year.  YMCA President Jerry Adkins said the deal will allow the YMCA one chance to purchase the property in the 10th year of the lease, something that YMCA officials said they wanted after investing several million dollars for improvements on the property.  Officials say the lease will be signed on May 11th in a ceremony on the property.  The YMCA will retain the current property and renovate the existing building on 14th street. 

 

 

Hispanic protests have minimal affect locally 

 A number of businesses around the state that employ or cater to Hispanics closed Monday as hundreds of Latinos took to the streets in protest as part of a nationwide call for immigration reform.  Two poultry plants closed in the state and another reported low attendance for its first shift.  Non Hispanic businesses reported no decline in sales; in fact many said they saw an increase in sales Monday.  At least four marches were held around the state the largest in Huntsville where police estimated a crowd of up to 1,500.  A march in Dothan drew up to 125 people and a march in Russellville drew about 300 people.  School systems also reported little decline in attendance on Monday. 

 

Gadsden school planning giant block party 

As the city of Gadsden prepares to consolidate the cities high schools into one school at the end of this academic year, alumni from one of the schools is preparing a giant farewell party this weekend.  Emma Sansom High School alumni from California to New York will be in the city Saturday when Wall Street in Alabama City will close down for a parade and block Party.  Organizers say they are expecting upwards of five thousand people for what they say will be the final big event before the school is closed forever.  The City of Gadsden will be consolidating Emma Sansom High, Litchfield High and Gadsden High into a new consolidated school beginning with the 2006 school year.
