KFC cited for labor law violations
A tip to state child labor inspectors
in October has led to 52 separate labor violations being brought
against the Fort Payne Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant.
Payne restaurant was one of four locations in north Alabama owned by
F&F Foods, Inc. in Roswell, Ga. The Fort Payne location was charged
with 52 of the 71 violations.
Child Labor Inspector Robin Hancock said the state audited records
from KFC restaurants in Anniston, Jacksonville and Oxford, as well
as Fort Payne. The audits began on Oct. 24 and took several weeks to
38 violations were issued for
[children] who were working without a work permit. There were 14
violations for kids working late hours on a school night. Each
offense is punishable with fines ranging from $100-$500. Officials
said F&F Foods has taken the matter seriously. The company has
decided to institute a mandatory 9:30 p.m. limit for their workers

Douglas woman charged in Etowah chase
A 22-year-old Douglas woman has been charged
with attempted murder, among other charges, after leading Etowah
county authorities on a high speed chase over the weekend. 22 year
old Crystal Wall Haisten, was charged with attempted murder,
third-degree escape and first-degree theft Monday. Haisten, who had
warrants in Blount County, was a passenger in a Ford Contour that
was stopped at Mayo Road in western Etowah county. Officers pursued
Haisten - along with a passenger in the car - for "several circles"
on Mayo Road, then along U.S. Highway 278 West into Blount County.
She ended up striking a police vehicle resulting in the attempted
murder charge. Officers said she attempted to ram law enforcement
vehicles several times during the chase, some times "head on." The
chase ended after Haisten wrecked the car in Snead.

will recommend an extension of the contract to the full JPA board
next Tuesday. Foster said that an appraisal on the property has

to McClellan . Foster said that Intillimed remains financially
committed to the Mcclellan move.

alleged warrant. The man got his wish, the man was arrested for
public intoxication and trespassing and got a spot in the jail as an
