  • Local students visit Congressman in Washington


Tyson selling local plants 

Tyson Foods Inc. announced Thursday it is selling poultry plants in Ashland and Gadsden and some other operations in the state that no longer fit into the company's plans. The facilities together have 1,200 workers. Tyson said it has signed a letter of intent to sell the plants to Koch Foods Inc., a private company based in Park Ridge, Ill. The transaction includes a feed mill in Talladega and hatcheries in Fair Knoll and Empire. The deal should be completed by the end of May. Terms weren't disclosed. Tyson decided to sell the plants after reassessing the future of the Alabama operations following a fire that destroyed a poultry processing plant in Heflin. Koch had been a primary customer of that plant, which is not being replaced. Koch was also a customer of the Ashland and Gadsden plants.  Tyson has operated the Ashland and Gadsden plants for more than 20 years. It said many of the workers at the Alabama facilities are expected to be given a chance to transfer to Koch, though 400 of 675 jobs at the Gadsden plant are in the process of being eliminated as production is shifted elsewhere. As part of the deal, Koch will take over contracts with 350 growers who now raise chickens for Tyson, the world's largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef and pork. Once the transaction is complete, Tyson will still have 2,400 workers in Alabama, out of a total of 107,000.  



Calhoun county insurance rates rise 

Calhoun County’s insurance carrier has told the county to reduce the number of accidents and workers’ compensation claims or they face possible non renewal of their policy. According to county administrator Ken Jointer the county’s premium jumped by $226,187 over two years, Accidents in the Sheriff’s Office – seven out of the eight claims this year – along with “frivolous” workers’ compensation claims in all departments are behind the cost increase. Commissioners voiced their concerns Thursday morning. Joiner will send a memo to all department heads asking them to monitor workers’ compensation claims. He also wants the commission to review all claims and accident reports.
