Investigators know identity of assault
Gadsden police say they are awaiting autopsy
results but that they now believe they know the identity of a man
who died Saturday soon after he was dropped off at a hospital
emergency room. Investigators say they are awaiting a positive
identification from a family member before they will release the
What police say they do know, is that the man was involved in an
altercation with some other people on Springdale Avenue in Oakleigh
Estates. The man died shortly after he was dropped at Gadsden
Regional Medical Center about 4 p.m. Saturday and he had no
identification on him. The person who dropped him off said he did
not know who the man was.
New airport unofficial open
Centre Mayor Phil Powell said this week that
the new regional airport in Cherokee County is unofficially open,
the mayor made the comments at a recent city council meeting. Why
unofficially open? The Centre-Piedmont-Cherokee County Municipal
Airport does not yet have running water or hangers, only the runway.
Powell said an official opening ceremony will
be held once the road to the airport is paved and water is supplied
to the facility. The Centre-Piedmont-Cherokee County Airport
Authority has said the current Centre Airport will need to remain
open for at least a year to a year-and-a-half after the current
facility is up and running. The new airport, located along hiway 9
between Piedmont and Centre, is a joint effort between the cities of
Piedmont and Centre and Cherokee County.
Riley likely to call special session
Alabama legislators could find themselves back
in Montgomery sometime before Thanksgiving. Governor Riley said
Monday he is considering calling a special session sometime in the
fall. He says he wants lawmakers to consider legislation to help
Gulf Coast residents who suffered damage in Hurricane Katrina in
2005 and have been unable to collect
on insurance claims. Riley says he also wants to ask lawmakers to
consider adopting a law that would switch Alabama's property tax
reappraisals from annually to once every four years. That proposal
was introduced during this year's regular session. But it was never
debated on the floor of the House or Senate. Representative Steve
Hurst said he expects that the governor will call for action on some
other key issues including ethics reform. Riley made the comments to
reporters following a ceremony at the Capitol Monday inducting four
new members into the Alabama Academy of Honor.
Who burned the Outhouse?
County officials want to find out who burned the Outhouse. And they
are offering a reward. The Cherokee County Parks and Recreation
Board is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the
arrest and conviction of the vandals who destroyed the outhouse at
Rock Village in late July. Officials say that someone filled the
building with gasoline and then set it afire.
