Bryan loses request for injunction
Bryan today lost his court challenge for an injunction to prevent
the state Republican Party from decertifying his nomination for
family court judge. Jefferson County Circuit Judge Scott Vowell
released his order this morning saying that the court did not need
to stop the party from sending a decertification letter because a
trial and final judgment "should be rendered in ample time for the
preparation of the general election ballot." The Judge will meet
with the both parties Friday morning to schedule the earliest time
to bring the case to trial. Bryan won the popular vote in the June 3
Republican Party primary for the Calhoun and Cleburne county
presiding family court judge, defeating Mannon Bankson. Ten days
after the election, Bankson challenged Bryan's nomination in a
letter to the state party, claiming Bryan had missed the deadline
for campaign report filing. The Republican Party's steering and
candidates committee decided to decertify Bryan's nomination in a
closed meeting June 20. Bryan sued June 27.

RMC facing accreditation denial
For the first time in 51 years, Regional
Medical Center in Anniston is facing possible denial of
accreditation by the Joint Commission. Hospital officials will
travel to Chicago later this week to plead their case before a
review panel to appeal the Joint Commission's preliminary denial of
accreditation of the hospital. The preliminary denial is the result
of a series of "requirements for improvement," identified by the
Joint Commission, an independent body that evaluates hospitals
nationwide. The current status is the result of an unannounced
survey members of the Joint Commission conducted at the hospital in
August 2007. Areas needing improvement, according to the Joint
Commission's report include: labeling and storage of medication,
completion of medical records, maintenance of fire-safety equipment
and building features, and planning and documentation regarding
anesthesia. In the surveys, in addition to the requirements for
improvement, RMC scored above the performance of most accredited
organizations in heart-failure care.
