Weekend accidents claim two lifes 

Alabama state troopers report that at least two people were killed in weekend accidents in the area  . 17 year old  Jaclyn Mackensie Hooper of Piedmont was killed in the two vehicle accident just east of piedmont. Alabama State Troopers said a passenger in the car 15 year old Brook Franklin,  also of Piedmont, was injured and transported to Children’s Hospital in Birmingham. The two girls were in a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier just after 4 p.m. Saturday, when their car and a 2000 Ford pickup collided at the intersection of Vigo Road and Hebble Highway. The pickup driver, Wayne Brooks Robinson of Bremen, Ga., was not injured. A 23 year old Talladega man was killed in a one car accident near 5:30 Sunday afternoon four miles south of Lincoln on the old Lincoln hwy in Talladega county.  Troopers say that Demetrice Lakerry Ragland was killed when his 1995 Dodge Intrepid left the roadway and overturned ejecting him from the vehicle.

 

Goodyear to close more plants 

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. will close more plants as it looks to continue reducing tire production it considers high cost, the company said Friday after announcing a $174 million first-quarter loss.
Previous plant closings and job cuts are not the end of the company's scaling back, according to Robert J. Keegan, chairman and chief executive officer.  Goodyear spokesman Keith Price said the company will close more plants, but it has not identified which ones, how many or where.  Goodyear is closing a tire plant in Tyler, Texas, by the end of the year, but that is considered part of previously announced reductions, Price said.  The Tyler plant and Goodyear's tire plant in Gadsden, Ala., were both being considered for permanent shutdown, according to information released by the United Steelworkers of America last year. However, the company decided to close only the Tyler plant.  Goodyear said its loss for the quarter that ended March 31 equaled 96 cents per share and was caused by continuing costs from a settled strike and lower sales in North America. That compares with income of $74 million, or 37 cents per share, in the year ago period.  But shares of Goodyear stock hit a new one-year high of $35 Friday on the New York Stock Exchange as the company announced increased cost-cutting measures and said strike recovery was going faster than expected.  Keegan said Goodyear already has reduced annual production by 21 million tires, but wants to increase that figure to 25 million, saving the company $150 million by 2009.
The company needs to close plants to reach that goal. 
 

 

Eastern Parkway Funding 

As stakeholders in the Eastern Parkway thru McClellan continue to bat around ideas on how to fund the final phase of the project from Iron Mtn. Road to Highway 21,  one idea being mentioned is a toll road.  Congressman Mike Rogers said that privatization of the road is not being discussed as an option but that local officials are looking at all the alternatives.  Senator Richard Shelby said he thinks we can feel confident that the parkway will be completed within the next 4 years as the project is a project of interest to Governor Bob Riley who Shelby said will insure it’s completion before he leaves office.  Work on the current phase of the parkway to Iron mountain road is expected to be completed within the next year or so. 

 

Police find car belonging to missing minister 

    Police have found the vehicle of a missing Fayette County preacher. The car was found Friday in Tuscaloosa.  But there's still no sign of 59-year-old Gary Edwin Vance, who was last seen on April 20th in Lincoln. His vehicle was discovered in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart on Skyland Boulevard. The 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer was under a tarp. It's now in police custody and being examined for clues.
   Vance's family members in Kimberly say the last people to see him were employees of his homebuilding business, Vance Builders at a meeting in Lincoln.  Vance, former pastor of Mount Olive Assembly of God in MountOlive who now preaches part-time as a traveling evangelist, left home April 20th.    Anyone with information regarding Vance's whereabouts was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 205-752-STOP (7867) or the Kimberly Police Department at 205-647-5531.
