A Wellborn man has been charged  in connection with a home invasion and rape of a minor.  39-year-old David Lane Blackerby was charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy. According to investigators, Blackerby who lived next-door to the victim, admitted his involvement to after failing a polygraph test. He is accused of forcibly entered the victim's home around 1 a.m. July 3 and threatening to harm her if she did not remain quiet. After engaging in sexual acts, investigators say that Blackerby threatened to harm the victim if she called police. He later returned to ensure the victim had not left the house. The next morning the victim reported the crime to her mother, who had been staying with family down the street, who contacted the sheriffs department. The crime was committed in the Anniston Police Jurisdiction which was abandoned by the city earlier this month.

Fire crews were on the scene for a little more than two hours. No information is available on the name of the employee or his condition.

The first was the early presidential primary and the second was the regular June primary.

JSU cuts jobs                       

Due to a five million dollar cut in it’s budget, The Jacksonville State University Board of Trustees Monday approved cutting at least 18 jobs on the university's payroll, including 12 faculty positions. The job cuts are expected to save the university approximately $1 million, and save an additional $468,457 in fringe benefits. According to JSU President Bill Meehan, most of the jobs cut are vacancies the university has decided not to fill. The trustees also cut $1.7 million from existing operating budgets and established a "proration reserve" account of $1.4 million. While cutting the budget, the trustees monday authorized Meehan to negotiate with a construction management firm to oversee a $38 million project that would renovate the University’s  football stadium and add more dormitory space. The project is slated for completion date in  July 2010. The university plans to pay for the dormitory project with student rentals. It will add about 400 rooms under new premiere seating at the JSU stadium.  The university plans to cover the stadium additions through its fundraising for the capital project.

Andrew Herbst becomes the 8th commander of the Anniston chemical activity facility said he faces a huge challenge as the work continues to complete chemical weapons destruction in  Anniston.  Mr. Conrad Whyne, Director of the army chemical materials command was on hand for the change of command.  Mr. Whyne, based a the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, had high praise for the Anniston facilities record .  The Anniston facility is expected to conclude disposal operations in 2013. 


Cleburne may vote on Cold Beer 

Cold Beer was one topic discussed this week by Cleburne County commissioners.  Commissioners discussed a possible upcoming cold beer referendum as a movement is underway to get the necessary number of signatures on a petition to call for a referendum during the November elections.  The referendum would ask voters to either vote yes or no on a proposal to allow for the sale of cold beer and the brewing of wine.  At the present time Cleburne is the only county in the state that allows for the sale of hot beer and cold wine but not cold beer and the brewing of wine.
 Cleburne County officials said that  should the referendum fail, alcohol sales in the  county would simply remain as it is now.
