More local residents sentenced in drug ring 

Sentencing for defendants who have plead guilty to participating in a Cedartown Georgia-based drug ring continued Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Rome.   Kevin Floyd LaPier of Piedmont, Ala., was sentenced to 14 years and 10 months in prison, and Timothy Wayne Morrison, also of Piedmont, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for participating in a drug conspiracy and related gun charges. Shelia Lanfair of Borden Springs, Ala., reached a plea agreement with the government on a lesser charge involving the possession and distribution of one pound of methamphetamines. She was sentenced to three years and five months in prison. The drug ring conspiracy involved at least 600 pounds of methamphetamines, along with large amounts of marijuana and various prescription drugs. Prosecutors say it involved moving the drugs from Cedartown to Northeast Alabama for further distribution and resale between July 2001 and October 2004. Of the 25 defendants charged in the case, five are still at large. The remaining 20 have pleaded guilty, and several of those defendants have already been sentenced.   


Calhoun County Chamber endorses Bio Lab 

The Calhoun County Chamber of commerce Wednesday voted to support bringing the National Bio and Agro Defense to the McClellan property.  Chamber officials said that they supported the 23 million dollar project because of the potential for industrial and economic growth it would bring to the community.  The Chamber is the first to endorse seeking the controversial facility.  The Joint Powers Authority which controls the McClellan property has not made a firm commitment to the project as they are awaiting further information before they commit to the effort.  Several public officials oppose the facility being brought to McClellan because of the community’s long history of chemical problems.  Chamber officials project that the facility, if located at McClellan would have a potential economic impact of between 3.5 and 6 billion dollars over two decades.


Anniston police seeking shooting suspects 

Anniston police have warrants for three people suspected in a Wednesday morning drive by shooting in the city.  Police say that near 3:45 Wednesday morning shots were fired into the Lucky 7 nightspot on west tenth street.  Shots were also fired into homes on Beulah Avenue and Gurnee Avenue a short time later.  Police say that no one was injured.  Investigators say they believe that the shootings may also be related to at least two burglaries, including the theft of two vehicles from a Noble Street car lot which were used in the shooting.  Police also suspect that the shooters are responsible for the burglary of the Shooters Headquarters where guns and ammunition were taken. 



Candidates to appear for candidate forum 

At least 25 candidates, including the Secretary of State, have confirmed they will participate Thursday night in a candidate's forum presented by the Jacksonville Merchants Association.  The forum will begin at 6 Thursday evening at the Jacksonville Community Center.  Each Candidate will be given five minutes to present his or her position.  A question and answer session will follow each group of candidates.  Again the forum begins at 6 Thursday evening at the Jacksonville Community Center.
