University of Alabama employee facing
A University of Alabama employee faces
disciplinary action after she used Athletic Department stationary to
recommend clemency for a man convicted of smuggling drugs into a
state prison. Doug Walker, associate athletic director for media
relations with the University of Alabama athletic program, said the
employee admitted writing the letter, using Athletic Department
stationary. Glenda Edwards, the administrative assistant to Alabama
head football coach Nick Saban, wrote a one page letter to St. Clair
County Circuit Court Judge Charles Robinson, using the Crimson Tide
football stationary. In her letter, Edwards asks Robinson for
clemency in his sentencing of 34 year old Tommie Borden, of
Gadsden, a former state correctional officer who worked at the St.
Clair Correctional Facility in Springville. Borden and former prison
guard 27 year old Mark Clark, of Anniston were found guilty in June
of second-degree promoting prison contraband. The correctional
officers smuggled a small amount of marijuana into the prison.
Oxford school board approves capital
The Oxford City Board of Education on Tuesday
approved $34 million in capital improvement projects for the
2008-2009 school year, and about $40 million more in "wish list"
capital projects through 2013. The five-year capital plan is
required by the state school board. Topping the project list
approved tuesday is $20 million for a 105,000-square-foot building
at Oxford High, which will house 35 classrooms, seven science and
technology labs and a new cafeteria. The project will replace the
current building, which was built in 1951. Funding for the project
will come from a city bond issue. Other projects for the 2009
school year include $6.15 million for a 39,000-square-foot Oxford
High School Freshman Academy, scheduled to open in January, $6.7
million for replacements at DeArmanville Elementary School, and
$300,000 to put new technology — computers, projectors and
networking equipment — into all of the cities schools.
Bryan to appeal
Anniston Attorney Ray Bryan responded tuesday
to a ruling handed down by Birmingham Circuit Court Judge Scott
Vowell. Bryan says his next action is to appeal the case to the
Alabama Supreme Court. He adds that the fight is not just for his
rights, but it’s also for the people of Calhoun and Cleburne
counties. The State Republican Party has called a meeting for Friday
afternoon to move forward with replacing Bryan’s nomination. The
person nominated is set to take the bench in January since there was
not a Democratic challenger. Ray Bryan will hold a press conference
on the courthouse steps Friday afternoon at 4:30.
