  • Goodyear workers still manning picket line
  • Woman killed in Gadsden fire
  • Centre votes down leash law


New Tenant interested in old Jacksonville Walmart Building 

A new tenant may be moving into the old Jacksonville Wal-Mart building. According to Mayor Johnny Smith, the Center of Hope Thrift Store has proposed paying $6,000 per month rent for the building starting Jan. 1 if they can begin renovations on the building immediately. Under the proposal, the cost would jump to $10,000 per month In 2008. During a council work session Monday night, Council members questioned whether the group would assume liability insurance costs for the building. The city assumed Wal-Mart’s $221,040 annual lease on the building in a deal that brought a Supercenter store to Jacksonville in January 2005. 


Goodyear workers still manning picket line 

United Steelworkers officials said Monday that Goodyear's plans to bring temporary workers into the Gadsden tire plant is an effort to break the union that will not succeed.  Goodyear announced last week it would be bringing in temporary workers to various plants. The strike by the United Steelworkers will begin its fifth week Thursday.  USW Local 12 President Dennis Battles said union officials on Monday had three meetings with union members to go over what they could and could not do if temporary workers crossed the picket line.  He said the union wants to avoid any problems that might ensue.  Battles said he didn't know when the temporary employees might start work but he didn't think untrained workers would do much to help production in Gadsden or at other plants.  Battles is returning to Pittsburgh this week but not for negotiations with Goodyear. He said union officials will be meeting to discuss Goodyear's plans to bring in the temporary workers.  A statement from Goodyear on Friday said the company is "selectively adding workers in affected plants to continue serving customers." Goodyear spokesman Ed Markey said among items needed are those used by the U.S. military in its war on terror.  Local 12 Vice President Brent Riley said he believes using the temporary workers is an attempt to get union members to go back to work.  Riley said the union has about 30 people on the picket line at a time but that might increase.

Woman killed in Gadsden fire 

Gadsden Fire officials say that A woman who died in a house fire Sunday night in Alabama City apparently left food cooking on the stove.  62 year old Mary Massie died in the fire that broke out just before 10 p.m. Sunday night.   Etowah County Coroner Jason R. Maise said Massie apparently died from smoke inhalation.  Someone driving by the house on Marston Avenue saw the smoke and flames and tried to get in the front door, but the fire was too hot.  Those passing by ran to the house next door, whose residents told them Massie was inside the house.  Firefighters found flames already coming out of the house. Massie was found on the floor in the front part of the house.

Centre votes down leash law 

The Centre City Council has voted down a proposed leash law for the city . The council had asked City Attorney Al Shumaker to draw up an ordinance after a resident of Northwood Estates complained of dog attacks in the area. The ordinance, as written, would give the city the authority to fine the owners of animals who do not have their animals leashed or fenced. It did not provide for animal control or housing of any animals. Shumaker noted in the more recent meeting that the ordinance was “pretty broad.” He said the city could do more with the ordinance when the Cherokee Humane Society Shelter, soon to be under construction, is completed. Council Members Tony Wilkie, Rita Stubbs and Frankie Kelly voted in favor of the ordinance. Other council members voiced concerns about enforcement of the ordinance. Councilwoman Stubbs said this latest ordinance proposal wasn’t meant to be a solution to the problem. But it would be a start.
