Marsh says compromise reached in State Senate 

Members of the Senate minority who have brought the state senate to a virtual standstill this session, has reached a compromise to allow the senate to get back to work.  State Senator Del Marsh of Anniston, one of 12 republican senators and 5 democrats who have stalled senate action this session, said they were close to an agreement Thursday but issues over the house passage of an education bond issue Thursday kept the stalemate going.  Marsh says that and agreement was reached over the weekend.   
Rep. Randy Wood said the house version contained what he called slush fund money.  Wood said that if the stalling in the Senate is not resolved, it will mean starting over in a special session which he said could be costly to Alabama taxpayers.  Senator Marsh said he is hopeful that a special session will not be necessary. The legislature will re-convene Tuesday with only 5 days left in the regular legislative session. 

 

Woods fires plague area 

Units from the State forestry commission have been called in to assist local firefighters in trying to control a woods fire on Nesbit Lake Road just west of Jacksonville.  Units from Jacksonville and Websters chapel responded to the fire which sent up plumes of smoke visible for miles.  Fire officials said that the area was a large area and that local fire units were working to keep the fire away from homes and buildings in the area.  A forest fire near Hwy 278 at Spring Garden in Cherokee County created visibility problems for motorists on Sunday according to the Alabama Forestry Commission. Firefighters from Cherokee and Etowah counties worked to control the fire which was burning on approximately 80 acres of land just south of the highway.   Alabama state troopers worked to direct traffic and the Alabama Forestry Commission sent out advisories and cautioned motorists traveling along Hwy 278 in the Spring Garden area.  The entire area remains under a fire alert. 

 

Anniston councilman seeks legal way to fund scholarships 

Despite being told by Alabama’s attorney general that it was illegal to use city tax money to award scholarships to Anniston High School students, Anniston City Councilman Ben Little is requesting that the city hire an attorney to draft papers to make it legal for the city to contribute to the scholarship fund.  The request is on Tuesdays informal agenda for the councils pre meeting. The Attorney General told the council that a special referendum would be required to establish a special tax for the specific use of the scholarships.  Little is also requesting a discussion to maintain the social security office in downtown Anniston.  The decision on where to locate the office is at the total discretion of the General Services Administration.  A site has been selected by the government at McClellan and the sale of the property was approved last week by the Joint Powers Authority.  In action on the councils formal agenda Tuesday, they will consider adoption of an ordinance to repeal the imposition of the fees under the city’s solid waste disposal ordinance as well as considering a resolution to declare a sales tax holiday for the first weekend in august.  The councils pre meeting gets underway at 5:30 with the official meeting getting underway at 7pm. 

 

 

Gas prices at record high 

If you’re Planning a Memorial Day trip Take along some extra fuel money.  The latest survey shows the average price of self-serve regular gasoline stands at a record high of three-dollars-and-18-cents --up more than 11 cents over the past two weeks.  The Lundberg Survey of seven-thousand gas stations across the country determined the average price.   It tops the record of three-dollars-and-seven-cents set two weeks ago, which had been the highest price since the average cost of a gallon of gas hit three-oh-three on August 11th of last year.
