the promotions of two Sheriff’s Department employees at the request
of newly appointed sheriff Todd Entrekin. Johnny Grant was promoted

Riley holds water meeting
Gov. Bob Riley met Tuesday with U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers and other federal officials about finding ways to help
Lake Martin, Logan Martin Lake and other reservoirs on the
Tallapoosa and Coosa rivers refill more quickly this winter and
spring. Riley would like, among other things, to reduce water
releases from dams on the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers in coming
months. Corps of engineers officials said that what the governor
asked for is flexibility in some of those minimum flows and other
requirements, something that corps officials said they will find for
the governor. Officials with Alabama Power Co., the Alabama
Department of Environmental Management, the federal Fish and
Wildlife Service, Environmental Protection Agency and Federal Energy
Regulatory Commission joined the meeting, which lasted about two
hours in Riley's Capitol office. Riley said he wants the Corps and
other federal agencies to let Alabama Power in coming months raise
winter-pool levels at some of its reservoirs and release
lower-than-normal amounts of water from dams on the Coosa and
Tallapoosa rivers. Alabama Power operates five storage reservoirs
on the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers. In a related matter Tuesday,
Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue dropped a lawsuit he had filed in the
Middle District of Florida last month seeking an injunction against
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Perdue said Tuesday that recent
intervention by the Bush administration limiting how much water can
be released downstream from Georgia to Florida and Alabama has made
him optimistic the issue can be resolved outside of the courtroom.
