Jacksonville adopts ordinance to regulate sweepstakes gaming 

The Jacksonville mayor and council took swift action Monday night to place regulations on internet sweepstakes operations in the city.  According to Mayor Johnny Smith, the action came after it came to light that two such operations were preparing to open in the city.  The City followed suit of other area cities in adopting a stiff ordinance to regulate the operations.  William Barnwell of Piedmont has obtained a license to open an internet café in the city, Barnwell told the council members Monday night that he would be contacting his attorney.  Under the new ordinance, Barnwell’s location, on highway 21 in Jacksonville would not comply with the provisions of the new ordinance.  The ordinance, while not prohibiting sweepstakes gaming in the city, creates strict guidelines regarding location and operations, including a criminal background check for all employees and prohibiting anyone under age 19 to enter such an establishment.  Councilman Jeff Shelton said the action was part of the council’s duty to protect the community. The ordinance will become effective once published on Wednesday.


Congressman wants to stop Oxford company’s production of poison 

An Oregon congressman is pursuing an effort to ban a poisonous substance made in Oxford but says that  time may be running out to pass a bill this session.

Rep. Peter DeFazio introduced a bill in December to ban the production and possession of sodium fluoroacetate, commonly known as Compound 1080,

Which is primarily used to protect livestock by killing predators. In 1972 The federal government banned its use, but not its possession.

Tull Chemical Co. in Oxford, is the only U.S. producer of the substance which it has manufactured  since 1956. DeFazio previously has asked the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Homeland Security to ban 1080’s production without success. DeFazio, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, said a 1,000-page Central Intelligence Agency report showed a photograph of a can of 1080 — made in Oxford — recovered by coalition forces in Iraq. Inspectors believed Iraqi scientists were researching its uses as an assassination tool. DeFazio said he became interested in banning 1080 when a former Oregon governor considered licensing its use about 10 years ago



Anniston to adopt smoking ordinance 

Adoption of a citywide smoking ordinance highlights Tuesday’s agenda for the Anniston City Council.  The City Council is working with two draft ordinances and will decide on one of the ordinances. The council is also expected to approve participation in the statewide sales tax holiday the first weekend in august.  The council meets at 7 Tuesday evening at the Anniston city hall.


Jacksonville residents oppose zoning request 

A request to rezone four lots on Pelham road near Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville was met with some opposition before the Jacksonville City Council Monday Night.  The property in question is near what many say is the busiest intersection in the city and is also at the entrance to the University.  Developers are proposing to develop a restaurant on the property which lies in the block between the Jacksonville Post Office and the University.  Opposition came from residents whose homes are located across and behind the affected property.  Mayor Johnny Smith says that traffic in the area as well as noise seems to be the major concerns.   The council held a public hearing and placed the zoning request on first reading Monday night and will take action at their next meeting in two weeks.
