Woman arrested in Jacksonville Shooting 

A 76 year old Jacksonville woman is being held today in connection with the Sunday afternoon shooting of a 72 year old Jacksonville man at his Eagle Crest Boulevard home.  Donald Cunningham was taken to Jacksonville Medical Center with two gunshot wounds which authorities say do not appear to be life threatening.  Police began a search for Bobby Scott Crawford and a gold Ford Taurus she was driving.  Officers chased Crawford down Eagle Crest Blvd.  Crawford at one point attempted to hit a police officer injuring the officers knee.  The chase was called off near weaver over safety concerns.  Anniston police apprehended the woman at Regional Medical center where she was held until Jacksonville police arrived.  Police said they recovered the gun believed to have been used in the shooting with Crawfords arrest.  Investigating officers said that Crawford and Cunningham were know to be involved in some sort of dispute for years.  Following the shooting, Jacksonville firefighters were called to the home to put out a fire in a trash can in the garage that officials say had been intentionally set.  Crawford is being held in the Jacksonville City Jail pending charges. 

 

Sentencing delayed for Gadsden Officials 

The sentencing date has been changed for four people who pleaded guilty in a federal probe of public corruption in Gadsden. Sentencing, originally set for this month, has been moved to March 27 for former Councilmen Jim Armstrong and Fred Huff, former Commercial Development Authority director Cathy Back and political consultant Larry Thompson.  Documents filed last week say Armstrong, Huff, Back and Thompson have been cooperating in an investigation that will not be completed by the original sentencing date.  Armstrong, Huff, Back and Thompson have pleaded guilty in federal court to bribery and wire fraud charges.  As part of plea agreements, Thompson and Back admitted they conspired to offer cash payments to Gadsden council members with the intent of influencing them for their vote for the Lafferty's Landing development.  Thompson solicited more than $55,000 from a witness who cooperated with the FBI from August 2005 until Feb. 13, according to the documents filed Aug. 3. Documents show Thompson paid Huff and Armstrong money disguised as campaign contributions for the support to give a zoning variance to Lafferty's Landing and additional tax incentives to the developer, Rainbow 1 LLC.  Gadsden developer Jason Stinson has testified he was advised by a lawyer to go to the FBI concerning possible corruption after Back and Thompson approached him about paying money to council members for favorable votes on the project.  Stinson said the FBI asked him to cooperate with the investigation and provided the money used to make payments to some council members through Thompson. Documents filed this week show Armstrong was paid $800, while Huff was paid $1,600.  Attorneys for Back, Armstrong and Huff also objected to pre-sentence investigation reports. The government's attorneys also identified possible errors that could result in incorrect calculations for federal sentencing guidelines.

Goodyear talks to resume Tuesday 

The United Steelworkers union and Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. on Friday confirmed they will have their first negotiating session on Tuesday since 12,000 workers in North America went on strike a month ago.  Goodyear spokesman Ed Markey said Friday that they will resume a formal bargaining session on Tuesday in Cincinnati with the full negotiating teams. The two sides will meet as Goodyear moves forward with its plan to shut down its tire plant in Tyler, Texas, eliminating about 1,100 jobs. The Steelworkers insist the Tyler plant remain open.  Talks broke off Oct. 5, the same day the strike began at Goodyear's union plants the United States and Canada.

Thursday Goodyear posted its latest contract offer online and announced a $48 million loss for the third quarter, due largely to charges from shutting down the Texas plant. Earnings from operations beat Wall Street estimates.  Goodyear's chairman and CEO, Robert Keegan, said in a conference call with analysts Thursday that Goodyear intends to come out of the negotiations with the Steelworkers with a contract that allows the tire maker to compete globally.  He has said closing the plant is part of a corporate strategy to stop making wholesale private label tires.  The union last week sent a letter to Goodyear saying it would return to negotiations only if the company was willing to drop plans to close plants and cut health care.

The company has said its offer would not cut wages, but it would increase health insurance costs.  The union has said it also wants to protect the future of other Goodyear factories.  In a letter mailed Thursday to strikers, company officials said the workers are welcome to return to work at any time. Workers were promised they can maintain company-provided benefits if they go back to work before Jan. 3.  Since the strike began, Goodyear has been making tires at some of its North American plants with nonunion and temporary workers as well as some managers. The company is counting on production at its international plants to help supply North American customers.                                         

 

Alabama Power sets new Lake Guidelines

Alabama Power Company has developed a shoreline management plan, which regulates and restricts some shoreline development along its 12 lake impoundments, including Logan Martin and Lay lakes. The new shoreline management plan regulates and restricts certain types of shoreline development for new commercial and multiple single-family type home developments like condominiums, apartments, subdivisions and campgrounds. The new shoreline management plan restricts the square footage of shoreline structures, like boat slips, piers, docks and swimming platforms, constructed along the shores of Alabama Power lake impoundments for new commercial and non-commercial developments. Willard Bowers, vice-president of environmental affairs for the company, said the main purpose of the shoreline management plan is to help prevent over-development of Alabama Power impoundment shorelines and to encourage dry-storage of water vessels. The guidelines for commercial and non-commercial multiple single-family type dwellings developments are in effect for Logan Martin, Lay, Martin, Weiss, Harris, Smith, Neely Henry, Jordan, Mitchell, Walter Bolden, Yates and Thurlow lakes.  Current developments, which fall under the new guidelines, are grandfathered in, Bowers said Friday.
