Area preparing for winter storm

At Governor Bob Riley’s direction, state agencies have made preparations for an expected winter storm.  “Preparation is really the key to dealing with severe weather and our state agencies are ready to help if the need arises,” Governor Riley said.  “I encourage Alabamians, especially those in the northern and central parts of our state, to stay alert to changing weather conditions and take necessary precautions to keep themselves and their families safe.”  The Alabama Department of Transportation has personnel on standby throughout the state.  Ice sanding equipment, dump trucks and spreaders are loaded with sand.  Crews are prepared to work through the night to put down sand in areas likely to ice over and will continuously monitor roads and sand them as needed.  Any road closures will be posted online at www.dot.state.al.us/ . The Alabama Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) has staff and regional coordinators on alert status and they are prepared to assist local communities with requests for assistance.  The National Weather Service is providing AEMA with constant updates on conditions and how the weather is expected to impact Alabama counties.  Winter weather tips can be found at the AEMA website:  http://ema.alabama.gov/.  The Alabama Department of Public Safety has a comprehensive severe weather operations plan to direct immediate response to weather-related emergencies, including winter storms.  State troopers are advising motorists to drive with caution, be alert to changing weather conditions and avoid roadway travel should conditions deteriorate.  Stay tuned to Alabama 810 for you latest weather updates. 

 

 

Hokes Bluff chase 

A Spring Garden man is facing charges in two counties after leading police on a high-speed chase that began in Cherokee County and ended in Hokes Bluff.  Police have not released the name of the 44-year-old man who was driving a red Ford Probe .  Officials said the driver spotted Cherokee County Sheriff's deputies working a wreck on Cherokee County Road 59, near the county line and turned around and sped off.  Deputies pursued the man along Etowah County Road 71 from Centre. Hokes Bluff police were called to assist and deployed spikes at the intersection of Days Circle and 71.  The chase continued south on Alford Bend Road.  Hokes Bluff officers attempted to stop it with their vehicles using a pit maneuver when the man reached U.S. Highway 278 East.  The driver then  sped west bound on U.S. Highway 278, hitting a Cherokee County patrol vehicle head-on.  The man is being  held in Cherokee County jail and warrants were pending in Cherokee and Etowah County. 

 

High lead levels found at Lincoln site 

Officials with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency say that High levels of lead have appeared in soil samples collected from neighboring properties around an abandoned brass foundry in Lincoln. Soil samples were collected last May from 17 properties near the abandoned Lincoln Metals/Heartland Faucet Corporations brass foundry in Lincoln’s First Avenue Park community. EPA officials said soil samples collected from three different properties, which include the First Avenue Community Park, recorded elevated levels of either lead or chromium, above the removal level. Records indicate lead concentrations found in the First Avenue Park soil were four times higher than the EPA’s lead screening level of 400 parts per million. Officials said the EPA is in the process of evaluating the data and determining appropriate future actions.

 

Gadsden facing possible life without parole on robbery conviction 

A 33 year old Gadsden man, accused in the 2007 robbery of two convenience stores, was convicted by an Etowah County jury Thursday on charges of first-degree robbery.  Michael Peeks, was convicted on the charges which stemmed from armed robberies of two local convenience stores in April 2007.   Because of prior felony convictions Peeks  faces a possible sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole which district attorney Jimmy Harp said is what his office will ask the court to impose.
