Fort Payne youth killed

Police in Fort Payne say that A 5-year-old girl from Fort Payne died Sunday afternoon after an accident with a pellet gun.  According to DeKalb County Sheriff Jimmy Harris the accident occurred on Gann Road at the child's residence, when the gun was fired by a family member.  An autopsy is part of standard procedure following the death of children less than 16 years of age.  The incident remains under investigation by the Fort Payne Police Department.  

 

 

Water update 

The Army Corps of Engineers rolled out a plan Friday that allows Georgia to keep more of the water in north Georgia's Lake Lanier, a focal point in the tug-of-war over water involving Alabama and Florida.  The Corps immediately reduced the flow of water from Lanier to Florida by about 5 percent following a decision by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that federally protected mussels can live with less of the water from the lake.  Under the new plan, which is in place through June, the Corps can eventually reduce the flows from Lanier by as much as 17 percent, depending on lake levels.  Friday's announcement did little to satisfy Florida. Gov. Charlie Crist, who said he was "disappointed" by the news, said he will "continue to focus on the needs of the people who depend on a healthy Apalachicola Bay."  Alabama, for its part, seems mollified by the Corps' decision. Gov. Bob Riley said he was "very satisfied and very pleased" with the move, and he applauded a decision that will temporarily reduce the flows from the Jordan Dam by 20 percent.  Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said he was "optimistic" the governors could broker an agreement outside the courts.

 

Thanksgiving travel 

The day before Thanksgiving has long been considered one of the most dangerous days of the year for drivers, and historically has been the most crash-prone day of the holiday week. But that's not the case anymore in Alabama, researchers say. Today and Tuesday likely will see the most crashes on the state's roads this week, as holiday revelers take time off work and treat every day like New Years Eve, according to a study by a traffic research lab at the University of Alabama. In a trend UA's CARE Research & Development Laboratory has been monitoring since 2002, Thanksgiving week crashes have shifted from being concentrated on the day before Thanksgiving to being more evenly spread out over the week as people begin their holiday earlier and earlier. In anticipation of a dangerous week on the roads, State Troopers this week will put supervisors and others with arrest powers but who aren't usually on the highway back in patrol cars, adding 200 extra patrols statewide for seven days beginning Monday. Combined with extra patrols from local authorities, the blitz likely will put on the state's highways the largest number of law enforcement personnel ever on patrol in the state at a single time, state troopers said. This time, Alabama troopers will be joined by law enforcement agencies in Tennessee and Mississippi, who will participate in their states. Drivers can expect to find sobriety checkpoints, including checkpoints at the state's borders that are manned by troopers from two states. Troopers will look for speeding, failure to yield the right of way, following too closely, driver inattention and DUI, and will target crash-prone areas, officials said. There were 19 highway deaths over Thanksgiving in Alabama last year. Clay Ingram, a spokesman for AAA Alabama, said that even with gas at about $3 a gallon, 31.2 million motorists will hit the road for Thanksgiving nationwide, a 1.3 percent increase from last year.  

 

Gas prices 

Thanksgiving holiday travel picks up today and gasoline prices are rising. The national average price for gasoline -- up about 13 cents over the last two weeks -- stands at just over $3 a gallon.   A pump price survey by oil industry analyst Trilby Lundberg released today says the average price of regular gasoline on Friday
was $3.09 a gallon, mid-grade was $3.21, and premium was $3.32.  The nation's lowest price was in Tucson, Ariz., where a gallon of regular cost $2.91, on average. The highest was in San Francisco at $3.48. The Lundberg Survey checks prices at 7,000 stations nationwide.
