Oxford to swear in new council member 

The Oxford City Council will fill a vacancy on the council when they meet at 6:30 Tuesday night.  Boice Turner will be sworn in during the meeting replacing Johnny Bentley, who retired from the council in January.   Several city officials will be out of town next week so the council moved their meeting to tonight.  Mayor Leon Smith, Council President Mike Henderson and Councilmen Greg Thrower and Steven Waits will be traveling to the nation’s capitol for a meeting hosted by the National League of Cities.  Tuesday night’s meeting gets underway at 6:30 at the Oxford City Hall 

 

 

Authorities investigating bank robberies 

Moody Police and the FBI are investigating the Monday morning robbery of a Moody Bank.  Officials say that the First American Bank on Moody Parkway was robbed near 11:30 Monday morning.  Other details of the robbery have not been released.

Police in Childersburg are seeking the public’s help in locating two men who robbed a Childersburg Bank Friday.  Investigator Shane Burnette said Superior bank, located along U.S. 280, was robbed at 3:12 p.m. Friday afternoon by two men armed with a 9-milimeter automatic handgun wearing masks.  The first suspect was described as a black male, more than 6 feet tall, weighing about 160 pounds and of medium build. The second suspect was described as being between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 9, of medium build and weighing about 165 pounds.  According to police reports, both suspects busted open the bank door, hollering and telling everyone to get down. The first suspect then jumped over the counter and went to the cash drawers and stationary vault, while the second suspect stayed by the door.

The tellers and individuals in the bank were told to stay on the floor. The first suspect took the money and both left through the front door.

Burnette said it only took about 2 minutes for the suspects to enter, rob and exit the bank. They left with a little more than $28,000. The two men fled the scene in what was later discovered to be a stolen white, four door Oldsmobile.  Burnette said it is believed they had another vehicle ready to switch over to. They abandoned the stolen Oldsmobile in the Childersburg Cemetery behind the Church of God.

The car is in police custody, and Burnette said it may have had a Calhoun county tag on it prior to the bank robbery.  He and the department hopes the public has information that could help lead to the arrests and conviction of the two robbers.

If anyone has any information regarding the case, they are asked to call Burnette with the Childersburg Police Department at 256-378-5568. Callers can remain anonymous.  The case is under investigation by the Childersburg Police Department and FBI.  

 

Alabama schools receive bad grades in study

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce crunched a bunch of numbers and came to this downer of a conclusion: American schools are not teaching children what they need to know to compete in a global economy. And what the rest of the country does badly, Alabama does worse. The study graded states and picked out "leaders and laggards." It found most fourth- and eighth-graders across the United States are not up to snuff in reading or math. The group said it had a duty to point this out, to demand reform. The future of the country depends on it. From looking at the scores, most of the country needs a good grounding. And Alabama? Well, if the state had hands I wouldn't quibble if a substitute teacher Scotch-taped them to a desk. Alabama's report card is miserable:

  • Academic achievement: F. Only New Mexico, Mississippi and D.C. scored worse.

  • Academic achievement of low-income and minority students: F.  Thank God for Mississippi,' cause they're the only state behind.

  • Return on investment: F.

  • Postsecondary and workforce readiness: F.
