Two county chase ends in arrest of Gadsden man 

For the second time in little over a week, law enforcement officials in Calhoun county have been involved in a chase with a ford focus from Etowah county.  According to Calhoun County Chief Deputy Matthew Wade, the latest chase took place near midnight Tuesday night when a motorist refused to stop for Gadsden police, a chase ensued up highway 431 where Glencoe officers picked up the chase and then discontinued the chase.  Wade said that the vehicle was spotted by a Calhoun County sheriffs deputy on highway 204 and the chase went thru Jacksonville, where officers deployed spike sticks and were able to puncture one of the tires.  The chase then went thru the Lenlock community and ended in Wellborn when the deputy was able to use the pit maneuver and stop the vehicle.  The cars driver, Clinton Wayne Vandiver of a Gadsden address was taken to the Etowah county Jail and will face additional charges in Calhoun County as well. 

 

 

JPA approves land sale for Social Security Office 

The Joint Powers Authority at McClellan agreed Tuesday to the sale of two point one acres at twenty nine thousand five hundred dollars an acre to the  Collyer Lloyd construction company for the construction of the new social security office for the five county area.  The motion passed by a six to two vote Tuesday.  Developer James Lloyd says it could take up to six months to start the new social security building, but that he would like to see construction start in 45 days.  Anniston mayor Chip Howell said the new office could have gone anywhere in the region. The new building will replace the current location in Anniston that will serve the five county region.
 

House committee approves school bond bill 

The House education finance committee on Tuesday approved the largest school bond issue in state history, a $1.05 billion measure that would allocate nearly $60 million for Northeast Alabama schools. The bond issue also would provide capital construction money for universities and two-year colleges.
The 205 public school systems would get a minimum of $200,000 each with additional money based on average attendance for a total of $658 million.  Two-year schools would get $48.2 million, four-year schools would get $171 million, and other agencies would get an additional $174 million, which was added after the original $850 million bond issue was introduced.  After today the Senate has only six legislative days to pass the bond issue - along with a record public education budget of $6.7 billion for 2007-2008 and a public employee pay raise - if it can end its impasse and start passing fiscal legislation. Local systems and the amounts they would receive from the bond issue are; Cherokee County, $3.6 million; Etowah County, $7.7 million; St. Clair County, $6.88 million. Attalla, $1.77 million; Gadsden, $4.65 million; Jacksonville, $1.6 million; Piedmont, $1.05 million.  Gadsden State Community College, $3.3 million; Jacksonville State University, $4.6 million.

 

House approves increase in fishing & hunting licenses 

The Alabama House has passed bills to raise the cost of hunting and fishing licenses in Alabama.   The House voted 91 to six to raise the cost of a resident fresh water fishing license in Alabama from nine dollars and 50 cents to 12 dollars and the cost of a resident hunting license from 16 dollars to 24 dollars.  The bill now goes to the Senate for debate.   The legislation is supported by some organizations that support
hunting and fishing and wildlife management in the state. The price of hunting and fishing licenses in Alabama has not been raised since 1989.   The House passed a separate bill that raises the cost of registering a boat, depending on the size of the boat.
