Teen charged with attempted murder
Etowah county authorities say that a 19 year
old Gadsden A man who apparently swerved to intentionally hit a
Rainbow City police cruiser during a chase Tuesday afternoon has
been charged with attempted murder and first-degree criminal
mischief. DiAnthony Tavorres Smith was taken into custody by
deputies and Rainbow City police officers soon after the crash on
Rainbow Drive. After the crash, Smith’s burgundy Chevrolet Blazer
was about 200 yards from the police cruiser when he apparently
jumped from the vehicle and ran behind some businesses. After a
short chase, he was taken into custody. Rainbow City police officer
Nick Gaskin was pulling from Spurlock Drive onto Rainbow Drive when
the driver of the Blazer intentionally swerved to hit his patrol
Anniston scholarship bill lacks support
A proposed constitutional amendment introduced
by Rep. Barbara Boyd that could restore scholarships for Anniston
High School students made it to the State Senate on Thursday. State
Rep. Randy Wood of Anniston said today that the bill is not expected
to pass. Members of the school board are opposed to the bill
because it would give the City Council the authority to take the
money for the scholarships out of special school taxes, which they
say would hurt the school board. Money for the scholarships in the
past came out of Anniston's general fund. Alabama Attorney General
Troy King in an opinion last year said the City of Anniston could
not use public money to fund scholarships for private individuals.
Until then the City Council had given a half million dollars to
the Anniston City Schools Foundation's Next Start scholarship
program helping to provide college scholarships to 480 Anniston High

superintendent. Board members say they hope to have a contract
negotiated within the next two weeks. Dr. Lacey said she was
honored that the Board had confidence in her ability to lead the
Talladega County School System.
