Chancellor launches internal investigation
on charges involving Jenkins
Architect Julian Jenkins claims he is innocent of accusations by
federal prosecutors that he was involved in a bribery scheme.
Federal prosecutors allege that as part of the scheme, Jenkins gave
a college president $1,800 as part of the scheme. Two year college
chancellor Bradley Byrne, in Anniston today said that he has ordered
his own investigation.

Water levels reduced from Georgia
Despite criticism by Gov. Bob Riley, the Army
Corps of Engineers on Wednesday reduced water flow into Alabama by
cutting releases by at least 129.25 million gallons a day from
Allatoona Lake in north Georgia. The lake feeds a tributary of the
Coosa River, which joins with the Tallapoosa River near Wetumpka to
form the Alabama River. Corps of Engineers officials say that the
Combined water releases from Allatoona and Carters lakes, which the
Corps manages in Georgia and which also feeds a tributary of the
Coosa River, averaged 1,033 cubic feet per second over the past
week. Corps officials said the flow reduction that began Wednesday
would cut releases from Allatoona from 700 to 500 cfps. That means
the release of 129.25 million fewer gallons a day. Also Wednesday,
Alabama Power official Alan Peeples said the utility starting Monday
would go through with plans it announced last week to more than
halve the amount of water it releases for the Alabama River from
dams on the Coosa and Tallapoosa rivers. The reductions are intended
to slow the drop in lake levels at Lake Martin, Logan Martin Lake
and Alabama Power's other storage reservoirs on the Coosa and
1 dead in Gadsden standoff
Authorities say that a Gadsden man is confirmed
dead following a standoff with police early this morning in the
Clubview area of Gadsden. Witnesses say that the man apparently
held his wife and children at gunpoint and released them all
unharmed. Police have released no details on the identity of the
victim or the circumstances surrounding the death.
Settlement reached in malpractice suit
Attorneys in a medical malpractice case in
Calhoun Circuit Court involving a local woman and an Oxford-based
orthopedic doctor reached an out of court settlement Wednesday. The
plaintiff, Lynn Suggs, testified Tuesday that she was unable to open
her right hand after nerves in her arm were severed, then later
repaired, during an October 2005 surgery by Dr. Willie Stokes of
Millennium Health Clinic LLC. Stokes and Suggs indicated that the
doctor unknowingly cut the nerve during an operation meant to free
it from constricting muscle tissue. The settlement was reached after
defense attorneys cross examined Suggs Wednesday morning.
