Newborn abandoned on porch of Oxford home 

Oxford police are attempting to find out  who abandoned a newborn infant on the porch of a home on Glen Davis Lane in the early hours of Tuesday morning.  Officials said the  3 pound 15 ounce premature white female was left on the porch dressed in baby boys clothing and wrapped in a mans flannel shirt.  Doctors estimate the babe was between one and three hours old when she was found and had not been cleaned up after the birth.  Local officials said there is no excuse for the abandonment.  Alabama’s safe haven law allows mothers to bring a baby to a hospital and leave it with attendants without penalty or questioning. The baby was taken to Regional Medical Center where it was reported in stable condition Tuesday night.   Oxford police are seeking the publics help.  Anyone with information about the infant should call oxford police at 831-3121.

 

 

ANCDF resumes operations following maintenance 

Officials report that Disposal operations have resumed at the Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (ANCDF) here following a planned maintenance outage. A scheduled maintenance phase began last month.  The Anniston facilities furnaces and ancillary equipment require periodic inspection and repair to ensure all operations are conducted safely and within the limitations of regulatory permits.  Maintenance workers concentrated on the Deactivation Furnace System (DFS), a furnace used to burn M55 rockets that have been drained of nerve agent and cut into pieces.  The furnace operates at approximately 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit.  The DFS afterburner system required additional work due to unexpected damage that occurred as efforts were initiated to reheat it.  An examination of the damage, and a thorough analysis of what likely caused it, determined that “accumulated combustible gases” ignited and expanded through various pieces of equipment.  The incident occurred at a time when munitions were not being destroyed.  There was no threat to the community or to the environment. Some equipment, like expansion joints, had to be replaced.  Other equipment was repaired.  In addition, procedures have been rewritten to ensure burner systems are purged of accumulated gas before second or subsequent attempts are made to relight a furnace or afterburner.  Initial VX disposal operations began July 23.  Anniston Chemical Activity (ANCA) and ANCDF workers have processed 14,506 M55 rockets and 16,321 gallons (137,260 pounds) of liquid VX agent.  In addition, as of March 2, 2006, all of Anniston’s GB-filled 142,428 munitions and more than 96,200 gallons of GB agent has been safely destroyed.

Election challenge in senate race 

Secretary of State Nancy Worley has been asked not to certify the election of state Sen. Larry Means of Attalla after an attorney said Means should be disqualified because he did not file the proper campaign financial disclosure information.  Means, who was unopposed in the Democratic primary in June and the general election last week, called the effort an attempt to "steal" the election. He said Tuesday he has retained legal counsel but has not seen a copy of any lawsuit.  Worley said Tuesday she has received a letter from the firm of White Arnold Andrews and Dowd of Birmingham on behalf of Jack Lowe Jr. of Gadsden asking that Means not be certified as the winner of the election.  It asks that Lowe be declared the winner of last week's election because of the write-in votes he received.  The letter said "an action" has been filed in Montgomery County Circuit Court.  Worley said she has not received a copy of any suit that has been filed. She said it was her impression that something would be filed but that nothing asking for a stay of certification has been given to her.  The letter dated Tuesday from attorney Mark White said Lowe received 586 write-in votes for the District 10 state Senate race in the Nov. 7 election.  The letter from White cites a Sept. 7 opinion from Attorney General Troy King that said regardless of whether a candidate has opposition in an election reports are to be filed and if not filed prior to an election the candidate forfeits the election.  Worley said election results will have to be certified by Nov. 29 and that results likely would not be certified until sometime that week.           

 

New Industry coming to Gadsden 

A new automotive-related industrial announcement is expected to be made soon in Gadsden.  Mike McCain, executive director of the Gadsden-Etowah Industrial Development Authority, told the Gadsden City Council on Tuesday that George Wimbish, owner of Wimbish Enterprises, will announce his firm will be locating in the former Progressive Plastics building in the Gadsden Commerce Center.
He said Wimbish has bought the building, which has been vacant for the past two years, and will open a plastics injection auto parts plant.   McCain said the plant will begin operations in 30 days. He said the necessary equipment has arrived and repairs have been made to the building, including the replacement of the roof.  The firm eventually will employ about 20 people with wages averaging $15 an hour and wages and fringe benefits totaling $20 an hour.  He said the firm will produce injection molding auto parts, such as tail light lenses and mirror housings.  The Gadsden city council is expected to approve tax exemptions for the project next week.
