I 20 accident claims life of Georgia Coach 

Alabama state troopers are investigating a three-vehicle wreck in Oxford that claimed the life of an assistant high school football and basketball coach from Georgia. Three students -- including the son of Georgia's women's basketball coach -- were injured.  The coach, 29 year old Shawn Smith, was killed Sunday afternoon when the Honda Accord he was driving was struck head-on by a tractor-trailer.  The three students, Andrew Landers, David Firth and Ja'Rius Ross, were passengers in the car and were injured. All three were transported to Regional Medical Center in Anniston. Landers, the son of coach Andy Landers, Georgia's long-time women's basketball coach, was the most seriously injured in the crash. The crash occurred around five p.m. on Interstate 20 in Oxford, about 12 miles from Jacksonville State University where the North Oconee High School basketball team was attending a summer camp. Officials said the tractor-trailer driving in the westbound lane apparently crossed the median into the eastbound lane and struck the car head-on. The driver of the tractor, 23 year old Jason Clark of Carrollton, Georgia was taken to Stringfellow hospital.  The driver and two passangers in a 2004 ford pickup involved in the accident were taken to Regional Medical Center in Anniston.  They were identified as 26 year old Cristy Baker, 46 year old Janet Ray and 45 year old Vicki Hughes all of Anniston.

Etowah man to change plea in Militia case 

An Etowah County man described as a member of a militia group arrested in April, is expected to join four others and enter a guilty plea Tuesday morning in federal court.  Documents filed Thursday in federal court gave notice that 22 year old Randall Garrett Cole intends to change his plea Tuesday morning.  Cole, along with Robert Kirk Dillard, Adam Cunningham and Jay McElroy are scheduled to appear Tuesday morning at 11 a.m. before U.S. District Court Judge U.W. Clemon.


Youth Challenge Academy graduates first class 

5½ months ago the  Alabama National Guard's Youth Challenge Academy opened its doors at the former Women's Army Corps barracks building at Fort McClellan with a total of 117 cadets - 104 males and 13 females. Saturday, 27 - 22 males and five females - are scheduled to walk out, as graduates.

More than half of the graduating cadets will have their high school equivalency certificates, several others expect to get theirs in the weeks ahead and 14 have completed their job skills assessments. Five are planning to go to college, six will be joining the Guard, nine are heading for civilian jobs, including one cadet whose starting pay was raised by $4 per hour after his prospective employer, Lowe's, got an assessment of what he could do. All will be mentored for a year. 


Delphi offers employee buyouts to avert strike 

Delphi Corp., which operates a plant in Gadsden, will offer workers buyouts of up to $140,000 and other payments in exchange for wage concessions meant to help the struggling auto supplier emerge from bankruptcy and avoid a strike, according to a published report. The incentives for ratifying the deal vary in order to appeal to Delphi's many hourly constituencies.
Delphi and United Auto Workers leadership signed the agreement Friday, but it still must be approved by the company's 17,000 UAW members and a federal bankruptcy judge in New York. Union members expect to hear details on the pact beginning today. Local union officials have already said the deal would provide three annual payments of $35,000 each for about 4,000 UAW workers who would see their hourly wages cut from about $28 to between $14.50 to $18.50 beginning Oct. 1. During the buy-down period, those workers also could try to return to General Motors Corporation, Delphi's former parent company.
Other incentives, will include:

·  A $140,000 buyout for workers with more than 10 years of service, and a $70,000 buyout for those with the company for less than 10 years.

·  A $35,000 payment to encourage workers with at least 30 years of service to retire.

·  Retirement benefits for workers age 50 and above with at least 10 years of service.

·  A program for workers with at least 26 years of service that allows them to stop working but be paid as active workers at the lower rates until they reach 30 years of service and retire.

·  $1,500 per month severance pay for every month worked - up to $40,000 - for all supplemental and temporary employees who choose to leave the company. The plan would also leave Troy-based Delphi operating only four UAW plants: Grand Rapids; Kokomo, Ind.; Lockport, N.Y.; and Rochester, N.Y.
