Police seeking suspect in Anniston shooting
Anniston Police are searching for a suspect that
they believe is responsible for the shooting of a market owner
Saturday evening. Police said that the suspect entered the Immanuel
Oriental Market on McClellan Boulevard and shot the 52-year-old owner
of the market in the back. Police said the woman was alive and
stable. Investigators found no evidence of robbery at the scene. They
said nothing indicates the shooting was domestic.
Anniston man charged in 06 home invasions
Calhoun County Sheriffs Deputies have arrested an
Anniston man charging him with a series of home-invasion robberies at
an Oxford mobile home park nearly a year ago. According to Calhoun
County Sheriff Larry Amerson, deputies arrested 26 year old Mario
Deshannon Burton, charging him with three counts of robbery in the
cases dating back to last January. Burton is also facing one count of
probation revocation and one count of failure to appear in court for
theft of property. He is being held in the Calhoun County Jail on a
Goodyear strikers return to work
Goodyear employees in Gadsden said they were glad
to give up their picket signs for a paycheck as workers returned to
work Tuesday following a three month strike.
United Steelworkers Local 12 president Dennis Battles and his staff
welcomed returning workers, who began reporting to the Gadsden plant
at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning. Gadsden revenue director Jack Young
estimated Tuesday the strike cost the city about $500,000, including
losses in the 2 percent occupational license fee collected on workers'
salaries and losses in sales tax collections. The 16 USW locals in the
United States and Canada, representing about 16,000 Goodyear workers,
last week approved a contract offer from the tire company. Battles
said the plant will be shorthanded until additional people can be
hired because about 70 employees have retired since the strike began.
He said the jobs will be posted in the plant and there are some
preferential hiring possibilities. New hires will be paid $13 an hour.
Current employees average $21 or $22 a hour. This was the longest
strike against Goodyear since 1976, when a walkout lasted four and a
half months. The strike began Oct. 5.
No Smoking in Oxford
A new law took effect Monday in Oxford. The city
has banned smoking in public places, citing health and public safety
issues. City council members approved the new ordinance in October.
The law bans smoking from all public places, not just bars and
restaurants like most smoking ordinances in other Alabama cities.
