Authorities search for stolen radioactive device 

Authorities are searching for a A 2-foot by 3-foot yellow plastic box stolen Sunday in Albertville which contains radioactive material.  The box is a Troxler Density Gauge, a radioactive device used to measure the density of asphalt and concrete. Albertville police notified the FBI, Homeland Security and the state Health Department, of the theft.  The device was in the back of pickup truck parked at a storage warehouse on Medlock Road.  A Boaz man was moving some items from the storage facility, using another vehicle, when the meter and some other items were taken from the back of the pickup truck between 12:45 p.m. and 1 p.m. The man is an inspector with Building and Earth Sciences in Birmingham.  Womack said a person using the device is supposed to wear a protective suit. The box is clearly marked with radioactive warning stickers, he said. An air compressor and three small motorcycles- a 1986 Honda, a 1992 Yamaha and a 2005 Honda -Ęalso were reported stolen. 

 

Man arrested for prescription fraud 

Joppa man was arrested Monday after he tried to pass an altered prescription.  29 year old Maxie Doyal Evans,  was charged with a felony count for attempting to commit a controlled substance crime by fraud with an altered prescription for hydrocodone, commonly known as Lortabs, according to a news release from the Etowah County Drug Enforcement Unit. The prescription was written by a local dentist and then allegedly altered by Evans before he passed it at a local pharmacy.  Evans was released from the Etowah County Detention Center on a $2,500 bond.

Water grants in jeopardy 

The future of $400,000 in grants for the CREMS Water Authority and the Fords Valley and Highway 278 Water Co-op is up in the air pending a vote on the CREMS system merging with the Boaz Water and Sewer Board. The Fords Valley and CREMS systems earlier this year applied jointly to the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs through the Etowah County Commission for two grants totaling $400,000 - $40,000 for CREMS and $360,000 For Fords Valley.
The commission last week voted to cancel engineering and management contracts on the grants due to the election on the merger.  The issue making the grants uncertain is that an advisory vote will be  held Thursday by CREMS customers on whether or not they wish to be taken over by the Boaz system.  Fords Valley officials said they possibly could add customers with grant funding but did not know how many. Their grant is to increase the size of lines.   At a meeting Monday among the three water boards and members of the Etowah County Commission, Frank Carver, chairman of the CREMS system, said the CREMS system didn't have the money available in reserve to pay the $15,000 in matching funds for its portion of the grant. CREMS serves about 1,100 customers in Carlisle, Rockledge, Egypt, Mountainboro and Shady Grove. Fords Valley serves about 1,800 customers.  

 

 

Honda economic boost to Alabama 

Honda's Alabama plant provides an annual $4.5 billion boost to the state's economy and is responsible for the creation of 45,000 jobs, according to a study commissioned by an economic development agency. The Japanese automaker, which has rolled more than 1 million vehicles off its assembly lines in Lincoln, marks five years of production in the state with a celebration today that includes Gov. Bob Riley. The study, prepared for the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama, represents the most thorough attempt to gauge the far-reaching impact of Honda's operations in the state. The study concluded the plant and its support system accounts for 3 percent of Alabama's gross state product.   The Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Alabama conducted the study, which relied on data collected from Honda, its Alabama suppliers and EDPA. In addition to the 4,600 employees who work at the Honda plant, the study found more than 40,000 more work for suppliers, vendors or have jobs indirectly tied to the plant. The 24 suppliers to the plant employ 4,036.   The study also found that in 2005 the Honda plant:  Had a total payroll of $252.4 million, or $54,443 per worker, a figure that is 57 percent higher that the state's average wage. Spent an additional $1.6 billion in non-payroll expenditures in Alabama. Was responsible for $703.1 million in state household earnings. Directly paid $6.9 million in taxes and generated another $64.2 million in state and local taxes. Jefferson County reaped $1.8 million from Honda and its suppliers, St. Clair County received $1.6 million and Etowah County $1.5 million, according to the study. Talladega County, where the plant is located, took in the most taxes with $3.2 million. Calhoun County received $2.8 million. The bulk of Honda-related jobs were also in Talladega (4,369) and Calhoun (3,850) counties .
