  • Jacksonville approves Sr. Center construction
  • Bingo in Hobson City


Jacksonville names new councilman 

The Jacksonville Mayor and City Council Monday night narrowed their field of 14 candidates for a vacant City Council position to one naming Truman Norred, pastor of Blue Mountain Baptist Church in Anniston, to fill the position vacated by the July resignation of councilman Jeff Shelton.   Norred said his most important issues involves education and public safety.  Norred said he is undecided as to whether he will run for election next August. Norred will attend his first committee meeting as a councilman Monday when the cities finance committee will get their first look at the citys proposed budget.


UAW move at Honda 

The United Auto Workers union is attempting to gain a foothold in Alabama's emerging auto industry sending letters to workers at Honda's Lincoln plant and plans to hold a meeting this week for employees interested in organizing. In a letter dated Aug. 3, the UAW says it has received calls, letters and e-mails from workers at the Talladega County plant since late last year. The union's letter said it has been "quietly meeting with small groups of Honda workers" for a few months. Honda's human resources director responded with a letter dated Friday, saying it is unclear how the UAW got employee addresses and urging them to "remain focused on our daily tasks."  Spokesman Mark Morrison said Monday the company has no idea how many of its 4,500 Lincoln employees got letters from the UAW, but added several complained about it. He said that Honda never shares employee addresses. The letter from the UAW Solidarity Committee in Detroit says union officials plan to hold an official organizing meeting with interested employees Wednesday afternoon at a Lincoln hotel. The UAW push in Lincoln marks the second time in less than two years that a union has tried to organize one of Alabama's auto plants. The International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers in April ended a 12-month campaign in which it had targeted production workers at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Vance. An organizer said the Machinists are considering renewing the campaign in September. The UAW tried to organize the Mercedes plant without success five years ago.



Jacksonville approves Sr. Center construction 

After over a year of work and planning, the Jacksonville Mayor and council Monday night gave final approval to plans and specifications for the construction of a new senior center adjacent to the Jacksonville community center.  Mayor Johnny Smith said that the city is facing a time deadline to get the project under contract.  The council agreed over a year ago to build the new center after the previous facility was abandoned because of the rapidly deteriorating condition of the building. 


Bingo in Hobson City 

Can Bingo save Hobson City.    Mayor Ralph Woods said Monday night  that the Calhoun County Bingo Regulatory Commission will meet Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Calhoun County Administration building to consider a request for a bingo operation in the city.  Woods asked residents to attend and voice support for a bingo hall. I-20 bingo at the former Hobson City bingo hall.   When in operation previously, the operation at one time provided 25 percent of the city's revenue, but payments gradually declined and the hall's owner closed the business and left the town owing taxes.  The new bingo hall under consideration Thursday will push for Class II bingo or electronic gaming which woods said is a more accurate way to track money. The proposed bingo hall would first have to be approved by the counties bingo commission this Thursday.
