Fire at McClellan ruled arson
The Anniston Police and Fire departments are
investigating a fire on the former fort McClellan that officials say
was the result of arson. According to Scott Bradshaw, property
manager for the Joint Powers Authority, the building was a former
world war two barracks at McClellan. Investigators said that it
appeared that a mazda pickup sped across a field at a high rate of
speed and went thru the end wall of the barracks building and all the
way to the far end where it struck iron water pipes and the outside
wall. Both the building and the truck were destroyed by fire. In
addition to the building, Bradshaw said that someone rammed a gate in
a restricted area of the former base in the same area as the burned
barracks building. Bradshaw said the building had not been occupied
since the fort closed and had no utilities connected.
Ohatchee woman charged with child abuse
A seven month old boy is being treated at
Childrens Hospital in Birmingham for a fracture to his right leg. The
boys mother, 20 year old Mary Elizabeth Hudson of Ohatchee has been
charged with aggravated child abuse. According to investigators, the
boy was treated at Jacksonville Medical Center before being
transported to the Birmingham hospital. Investigators with the
Calhoun Cleburne Children Center and the Daybreak Crisis Center said
the childs injuries appeared to have been the result of a twisting
motion which investigators said was a complete fracture,
Oxford plant to close
A decrease in demand for paper products is being
blamed on the announcement Monday that an Oxford maker of equipment
used by paper manufacturers will be shutting down. Doug Milner,
president of Stowe Woodward LLC said Monday that the company plans to
consolidate the work done at the Oxford plant into their other
facilities across the country. They expect the Oxford plant to close
by the end of April. Milner said the use of Internet and e-mail
services has had an impact on the decrease in demand for paper
products. The shut down will affect 19 jobs.
