Today’s News Headlines from Alabama 810 News

  • Jacksonville increases water restrictions
  • Quarry suit settled
  • Weaver man killed in Sunday accident
  • Cooling stations set up in the area


Jacksonville increases water restrictions 

Jacksonville Mayor Johnny Smith said Friday that the cities water supply from Germania Springs and Big Spring has decreased to alarmingly low flows, forcing the city to issue tighter water restrictions that will begin Monday. Germania Springs normally can produce up to 3 million gallons of water per day. This week, production has been about half that. To ensure conservation, the city has issued restrictions which include:

• A mandatory ban on landscape irrigation, such as sprinklers, hoses and irrigation systems

• A ban on washing vehicles, excluding car wash businesses

• A ban on washing sidewalks, streets, driveways, parking lots, patios and on filling swimming pools

• A limit on fire-hydrant use to city officials for public safety.

The city also will add the following surcharges to residential customers:

• $50 for using between 10,000 and 15,000 gallons per month

• $150 for using between 15,000 and 20,000 gallons per month

• $300 for using more than 20,000 gallons per month.

Water department officials said most residential customers use less than 10,000 each month.   The new restrictions and surcharges will begin Monday.


Quarry suit settled 

A Calhoun county jury was dismissed Friday after attorneys for eight Oxford and Hobson City residents reached a settlement Friday morning in their suit Michael McCartney and McCartney Construction of Gadsden.  The residents were seeking compensation for damages to homes and property and mental anguish they said resulted from blasting at the company’s Quarry on Coldwater Mountain overlooking Oxford.  The settlement did not mandate that McCartney stop mining or blasting at the quarry.   The value of each of the plaintiffs’ settlements was not revealed, but attorneys for both sides said they are satisfied with the agreement.  The Coldwater Quarry is one of two in the area owned by Gadsden-based McCartney Construction. On an average day, the company mines 1,500-2,000 tons of refined quartzite from the quarry. The company’s other operation, Speedway Quarry, is a limestone quarry in Eastaboga.  Shortly after announcing the settlement, Circuit Judge Brian Howell dismissed the jury Friday just before 11 a.m. 



Weaver man killed in Sunday accident 

An early morning accident Sunday morning claimed the life of a 69 year old Weaver man.  According to State Troopers, the accident occurred on highway 431 4 miles north of Anniston when Troopers said that Charles Jackson Burns died when a 2000 GMC pickup driven by 28 year old Mark Edward Smith,  of Alexandria, hit Burns’ 1994 Chevy Geo from behind, sending the Geo out of control. Both vehicles were northbound and moving with traffic at the time of the accident. Burns’ out-of-control car crossed the median and the southbound lanes, coming to a rest near the fence of Wright Dairy. Smith was taken to Regional Medical Center in Anniston, where he was treated for injuries and released. Officials said it appeared Burns died as a result of blunt-force trauma from the impact. 


Union approves Delphi contract 

Members of a union representing about 2,000 of Delphi Corporation's hourly workers voted to ratify a new four-year contract with the auto parts supplier.
   Seventy-five percent of International Union of Electronic Workers-Communications Workers of America members at locals with Delphi employees voted in favor of the deal.    The union has workers at three plants that Delphi plans to keep  including the plant in Gadsden.
   In a statement, union President Jim Clark says the past two years have been a difficult period for union members and local unions. He says this vote gives members options about their future on the job and allows the union to start the rebuilding process.
