Chapter 7

The Anniston Star



A Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows the debtor to retain certain exempt property, but the debtor’s remaining property is gathered and sold by a trustee from which creditors will receive payment. It may also be used by businesses which wish to terminate their business. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy enables debtors, through court supervision and protection, to propose and carry out a repayment plan under which creditors are paid, in full or in part, in installments over a three-year period. During that time, debtors are prohibited from starting or continuing collection efforts. The following bankruptcies declared by Calhoun County residents were recorded by U.S. Bankruptcy Court Northern District of Alabama last week:

INC., Anniston City Land Company, block 274, lot 4. • John B. Berendt and Deborah Berendt, Hillcrest Heights, Saks 3rd addition, block 8, lot 1. • Martha A. Heath, L. M. Burns, block A-8, lot 7.

• Billy K. Smith • Ellie Jean Miller • Evelyn G. Willingham • Theron Holis Williams

In previous years, the group has provided instructional supply money for teachers and built outdoor classrooms. All of the group’s money comes from fundraisers, including its annual Edible Eating for Education event, in which local restaurants provide samples of food for those who purchase tickets. Other fundraisers include Breakfast with Santa and a golf ball drop. Humphries said the foundation plans to continue focusing on technology next year and purchase more iPads and laptops for students. It is also organizing a new fundraiser set

for Feb.2 called Dancing through the Decades. During the event, groups of students and faculty from all the Oxford schools, along with community leaders, will perform dances from specific decades. The foundation has done much for students, but none of it would have been possible were it not for the community’s support, Humphries said. “The community has joined together and realized education is the backbone of the community,” Humphries said.
