Owner of dog involved in attack on woman arrested 

Anniston police have arrested A man believed to be the owner of at least one of the two pit bulls involved in a Friday attack in Golden Springs.  One of the dogs was captured and euthanized Tuesday, and its head was sent to a lab to be tested for rabies. Kristi Jiles was attacked by two dogs Friday evening in Golden Springs and received more than 60 stitches in her legs. 20 year old Gordon Raynard McGrue, of Pecanwood Drive has been charged with allowing dogs to run at large, a violation of city law. Anniston police seized the male pit bull, which McGrue says he does not own, at McGrue’s Pecanwood Drive home Tuesday morning. A female that McGrue says he does own was captured Saturday morning. She remained in quarantine Tuesday. McGrue said Tuesday that the dog that bit the woman doesn’t belong to him. This issue of dog attacks was brought before the Anniston city council Monday night.  City manager George Monk said the city will begin emphasis on enforcing the cities animal control ordinance.  Jacksonville passed a strict ordinance last year following an attack on a Jacksonville woman.  The Jacksonville ordinance requires owners of violent dogs to keep them in a fenced cage to protect neighbors. 

 

General Dynamics announces contract, 270 new jobs 

General Dynamics announced a contract Tuesday that will  bring 270 new jobs to the Anniston Army Depot to build a vehicle that will protect troops against roadside bombs.

The production will push the total number of General Dynamics jobs in Alabama to almost 1,000, with almost half of those located in Anniston or Oxford.  General Dynamics already assembles the Fox and Stryker vehicles in Anniston.  The company will make $2.6 million in capital improvements to their facilities at the depot and at B.R. Williams.

  

Woman killed in Tuesday night accident 

One person was killed and another injured in A Tuesday night accident on Mudd Street in Eastaboga. Troopers said  that a commercial vehicle and passenger car were involved in the accident;  According to troopers,  50 year old Myra Angela Roberts of Albertville was killed when her 1996 saturn collided with the 2006 international truck driven by 32 year old William David Fleming Jr. of Anniston. Fleming was taken to Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.  Troopers received a call about the accident at 5:58 p.m. Oxford fire and police departments also responded. The accident occurred some four miles north of Eastaboga on Mudd street in Talladega county.
 

Jacksonville woman testifies before congress 

Jacksonville native Lilly Ledbetter told a congressional panel in Washington Tuesday that she didn't sue her employer for pay discrimination earlier because she wasn't certain that her peers were earning more and she didn't want to be seen as a complainer in a male-dominated workplace. The timing of Ledbetter's lawsuit has become a flashpoint in the debate over employment discrimination since the court ruled 5-4 that the Jacksonville resident did not have grounds to sue Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. because she did not file her case within 180 days of the initial infraction.
Democratic leaders have responded to the ruling by vowing to pass legislation to give employees more rights. Critics at Tuesday's hearing said the court's ruling establishes a narrow window for employee redress and could even encourage litigation by forcing workers to aggressively respond to possible discrimination even when they don't have all the facts. Ledbetter, a supervisor at Goodyear's plant in Gadsden, Ala., said sex discrimination was behind a series of decisions that left her pay significantly below that of men who performed similar work. Ledbetter, who testified for several hours Tuesday, said that as one of few women at the plant she didn't want to "make waves" by raising complaints based on her early suspicions. She said she had learned early in her career that raising complaints could have negative consequences and she didn't realize the extent of the pay discrepancy until someone anonymously reported to her what other supervisors were receiving.
