Deputies arrest Maine sex offender 

The Calhoun County’s Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Registration and Tracking  (S.O.R.T.) Team has located a Maine sex offender sought by Maine officials for the past two years.  Deputies arrested  Scott Alan Boutin (left) on a felony count of Violation of the Community Notification Act.  It is unclear how long that Boutin had been living in Calhoun County.  Boutin is being held in the Calhoun County Jail with a $10,000.00 bond and court date of June 7th.

 

 

JSU considering campus transit system 

The JSU board of trustees heard a plan Monday for a shuttle system to make the campus more pedestrian friendly. Mickey Hall of Skipper Consulting, a transit consulting firm based in Birmingham, recommended JSU establish two routes through campus and another through other parts of town. JSU asked Hall to study a bus system as part of a $1.9 million federal transportation grant the school received in 2004. JSU President Bill Meehan said the university must notify the federal government of its plans by mid-June to avoid losing the money. Trustees then would need to approve any other student fees to operate the system, and perhaps hire a contractor to run it. Hall said JSU has 4,662 parking spaces on campus, and about 3,100 of them are occupied during peak times. He said 30 percent of students, faculty and staff who bring cars to campus move them at some point during the day. Hall said a feasibility study found 98 percent of students said they would use a bus system, but he said realistically about 2,500 students, or about 28 percent of JSU’s enrollment, would use the shuttles daily. Hall’s presentation called for three routes from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays. Two buses each would run on an east and west campus route every five to eight minutes, making 12 to 15 stops. Another bus would run every 30 minutes through parts of Jacksonville. Other buses would run 6 p.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays with a projected annual operating cost of $840,000 a year. 

 

 

Attorney General says city cannot contribute to Anniston scholarships 

Alabama Attorney General Troy King, in response to questions from the Anniston City Council regarding city contributions to the Anniston City Schools Foundation for college scholarships, has said that the city  cannot give public money to private individuals for college. King said the city cannot fund the program directly or indirectly, and said voters would have to approve a special tax to pay for the scholarships. Thirty-three Anniston High School students have applied for the scholarships this year, according to foundation director Catherine Chappell. Chappell said the city has given out $500,000 in scholarships since the program began in 1998 and said the city provided 100 percent of the funding. Chappell said that the opinion will not endanger students who currently are using money from the program, and students who have used program money in the past will not have to pay it back. Jacksonville State University president Dr.Bill Meehan said he was disappointed in the opinion any of the Anniston graduates used their scholarships to attend JSU. Anniston Mayor Chip Howell has requested a copy of the program’s operating budget, “so that the council may consider assisting them in another way.” Anniston City Manager George Monk said supporting the Foundation’s operating budget could free up their operating money for the scholarships.  

 

JSU to maintain tuition fees 

The Jacksonville state university board of trustees agreed Monday to maintain tuition rates for the third straight year at the university with no tuition increase. In-state undergraduate tuition will remain $169 per hour and out-of-state tuition remains $338 per hour.  Graduate tuition remains $225 per hour for in-state students and $450 per hour for out-of-state students. Full-time, in-state undergraduates taking 12 hours – about four classes – in the fall and spring semesters will continue to pay $4,056 of tuition per year, while out-of-state students would pay $8,112. In-state graduate students taking nine hours would pay $4,050 for two full-time semesters, while out-of-state grad students would pay $8,100. While holding the line on tuition, the trustees did Approve a 10 percent increase for on-campus housing rates. Residence hall prices will range from $895 per semester at Daugette Hall to $1,320 at Sparkman Hall. Apartments will cost between $1,145 and $1,650 per semester. University officials said 2,652 potential freshmen have applied so far this year for the fall semester, a 16 percent increase from fall 2006. JSU is also receiving more applicants from Georgia. So far, 616 Georgia students have applied to JSU for the fall, a 19 percent increase over last year. JSU hopes to increase its overall enrollment to 10,000 by 2010. The university enrolled 8,957 students for the fall 2006 semester.
