Anniston councilman charges discrimination from JPA
After saying earlier this year that he did not
want to serve on the Joint Powers Authority at McClellan, Anniston
city councilman Ben Little objected Tuesday night when councilman Jeff
Fink agreed to replace councilman Herbert Palmore on the JPA Board.
Little said that the JPA representative must be black, accusing the
JPA of trying to keep blacks out of McClellan. Littles comments came
during Tuesday nights meeting of the city council. Mayor Chip Howell
hinted at a possible future change on the JPA and called Little’s
allegations untrue. Little has said he wants Anniston Businessman
Ralph Bradford to serve on the JPA in his place, a move that would
require city council approval.
Ohatchee area residents opposed to annexation
A proposal by the city of Ohatchee to annex a
strip along Alabama highway 77 has residents in the area up in arms.
Around 250 people have signed a petition opposing the proposed
annexation after a December meeting at the Mount Olive Volunteer Fire
Department. The annexation proposal, which the council has submitted
for approval to state legislators, would take in 300 feet of property
on either side of a long strip of Alabama 77 — north to the Etowah
line and south to the Talladega line — and less than a mile of land
along Boiling Springs Road, as well as a strip along the H. Neely
Henry Dam. Only property inside the 300 feet would be taxed, and any
new businesses that open within the 1.5 mile police jurisdiction
beyond the new city limits would have to pay half the cost of a city
business license. Residents in the police jurisdiction would not have
to pay additional taxes for Ohatchee police to patrol. Business
property taxes within the annexation area would be paid to the city
instead of the county.
Probate Judge elect sworn in
While newly elected officials don’t take office

Commission chambers Tuesday afternoon as Calhoun County Probate Judge
Elect Alice Martin was sworn in. Martin, who will become the first
female probate judge in Calhoun County history, will replace retiring
probate judge Arthur Murray. A reception in honor of Judge Murray
will be held this Friday afternoon in the auditorium of the county
