False alarm stops workers at ANCDF 

Chemical agent monitor readings at the Anniston  Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (ANCDF) Wednesday night were later confirmed to be false alarms. Though the false readings were extremely low, and if positive would have had no impact to the immediate surrounding area or neighboring civilian communities, State of Alabama and nearby County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) officials were notified. Because there was no threat to the area, there was no need for officials to call for any off-depot precautionary actions.  ANCDF personnel immediately responded as trained upon notification of the readings. Disposal operations were temporarily suspended and ANCDF personnel were ordered to don protective masks. As is standard policy, technicians from the on-site, 24-hour chemical laboratory promptly used additional chemical agent monitoring equipment designed to verify the readings were false or real. Analysis of all samples following the readings verified that they were definitely not caused by nerve agent.  Timothy K. Garrett, the ANCDF government site project manager, said, “The ANCDF team on duty Wednesday night at the time of the monitor reading did exactly what they have been trained to do.”  Garrett also said, “We must and do treat all readings as if they are real until we can verify and prove otherwise. We know the community trusts us to protect them while we safely destroy the chemical munitions stored at Anniston Army Depot.”  Safe operations at the ANCDF have made a significant impact in the reduction of the size of the chemical munition stockpile here. Chemical demilitarization operations began in August 2003. All GB-filled munitions have been demilitarized to include 142,428 munitions and 96,246 gallons of liquid GB. In addition, 22,879 VX-filled rockets and 25,954 gallons of liquid VX have been demilitarized since March 2006. The Anniston munitions stockpile has been reduced by 25 percent during 41 months of safe chemical agent disposal operations.
 

 

Calhoun commission supports ban on sale of drug related items 

Calhoun County commissioners Thursday supported a move to ban the sale of drug paraphernalia disguised at novelty items.  Jeff Nelson, representing the Substance Abuse prevention advisory coalition, brought the matter to the commissions attention, presenting items he purchased in local convenience stores.  State Rep. Barbara Boyd told Nelson that she will introduce a bill to ban the sale of the items in the House of Representatives.  Nelson was surprised and pleased. County commissioners agreed to write a letter to the legislative delegation supporting a move to ban the sale of the items.
         

Former Glencoe officer arrested 

A former Glencoe police officer has been arrested for allegedly using a city credit card for his own use.  30 year old Dustin Moles, of Southside, turned himself in and was booked at the Etowah County Detention Center.  Moles faces charges of fraudulent use of a credit card from an incident in October when he allegedly used a city of Glencoe gas card to make a purchase for his own use. Moles had served as a Glencoe police officer for two years when he resigned in October to take a job with a railroad.
 

Funding lost for Hokes Bluff Bridge 

Replacing the Caddell Circle  bridge in Hokes Bluff has been a project of the Gadsden-Etowah Metropolitan Planning Organization.
The organization learned Thursday that the project did not qualify for MPO funding, which is federal money for transportation projects matched on an 80-20 basis with the sponsoring city or county commission.  City and state officials are now going to look for alternate funding for the project.  The project was ready to be bid when ALDOT decided the project was not eligible for funds.
The bridge is just off U.S. 278 in Hokes Bluff.
