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:
• Troy Lee Brazier of Anniston to Cortney Anne Steadham of Anniston • Anthony Gray Vinson of Anniston to Julie Ann Wilson of Anniston • Gary Monroe Smith of Ohatchee to Judith Ramona Carranza of Ohatchee • Christian Jorel Barrett of Birmingham to Julie Lynn Jeffrey of Leeds • Joshua David Wilson of Weaver to Casey Rae McKesson of Weaver • Christopher Oland HamChapter 7 mett, Jr., of Jacksonville • Jonathan Lee Payment and Chandra Ruth Payment, to Emily Lauren Smith of 380 Parker Drive, Anniston Jacksonville • Kimberly Shaddix, 63 Alice St., Alexandria • Christopher Sloan Wil-

Restaurant inspections Here are food service establishments recently inspected by the Calhoun County Health Department, along with scores. A score of 100 indicates the inspector found no deficiencies. Potentially hazardous deficiencies (four- or five-point demerit items) are noted. These must be corrected immediately and inspectors say they are often corrected while the inspection is underway. Restaurants earning below 70 must raise their scores within seven days or face closure.

there in the Dynamic Earth Exhibit Hall. The last two remaining buffalo from the original herd, a mother and daughter, died in 2000 and 2005, Burdell said. In 2002, the depot received three more for the herd. Those animals, two buffalo and a beefalo, a cow-buffalo hybrid, were the ones that were still living at the depot in January. “We received them in December 2002 when they were five months old,” Burdell said. “At the time, we thought we were getting three buffalo, not that it made a huge difference.” The supplemental feedings, the equipment and the veterinary bills were quite expensive, she said. So, depot administrators decided the herd would be better off in a new home. Alison Hedgecoth, the habitat manager
of Noah’s Ark, said the sanctuary takes in exotic and domestic animals such as livestock that are orphaned or unwanted. “We currently have around 1,000 animals,” she said. Hedgecoth’s mother-in-law, Jama, started the sanctuary in 1978 with her husband, Charlie. It was the fruit of a lifelong dream, Hedgecoth said. The daughter of a traveling preacher, her mother-inlaw was always picking up stray or injured animals. “She would take in little possums and little crows that she would see and sneak them into hotel rooms,” Hedgecoth said. “Her parents would always tell her, ‘Get that thing out of here.’” When she grew up, her mother-in-law started Noah’s Ark. The refuge takes in all kinds of animals
that would be hard to place anywhere else. The depot buffalo are now part of a herd of 10 at Noah’s Ark. The beefalo joins another beefalo on the preserve. Noah’s Ark also houses a lion, tigers, bears, exotic birds, alligators, giant tortoises, snakes and monkeys, along with a variety of other birds and animals, Hedgecoth said. Noah’s Ark opens its wildlife habitats to visitors. The facility doesn’t charge admission and survives on donations and grants. But it is an expensive operation, Hedgecoth said. The feed bills alone run $10,000 a month, she said. Anyone wanting to visit the depot’s buffalo is welcome to come during regular hours Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. Star staff writer Laura Camper at 256235-3545

“The more technology, the more improvement we’re seeing,” Brooks said. Technology in the classroom doesn’t make students learn, but it motivates them to learn, said Janet Bavonese, who teaches reading education courses at Jacksonville State University. She recently said electronic reading devices, such as the Kindle, make readers out of children who are taken with technology. The same can be true for learning other subjects with different forms of technology, she said. “It makes the presentation of material so much more engaging for the students and for the teachers, I might add,” Bavonese said. “You can show things in so many more dimensions.”
The new projectors, which come with a five-year warranty, cost about $600 each. They also include costly light bulbs that are essential to the devices and are expected to last about three years, Amerson said. The school system began buying the projectors a little more than a decade ago. Using grants and classroom funding, teachers and principals were able to buy the devices for the majority of the rooms in the county. But a technology assessment, completed last year, revealed that some classrooms still lacked the devices. “We just feel like every student ought to have the same opportunity in the classroom,” Amerson said.

The buffalo lived and bred at the depot for eight years and in 1981, the depot was housing 10 of the beasts, a herd too large for the space, Burdell said. Six of the buffalo were moved to a farm in south Alabama. Later in 1981, one of the four died, and then in 1984, another buffalo died. When the second buffalo died, the depot had it stuffed by Tallapoosa taxidermist Bud Jones and donated it to the Anniston Museum of Natural History in November of that year. Cheryl Bragg, executive director of the museum, said the buffalo is still on display

business Continued from Page 1A He’s also hired a consultant who specializes in “last-minute” ad buys — someone who can buy space in nationwide publications just before the press rolls, when the ads are cheaper. “I’m not starting with a huge budget, so I have to target,” he said. But like many new business owners, he has big worries about inventory. Sims has 2,000 bottles of StimFlora on hand, and he’s not sure whether that’s too little or too much. The only way to know for sure is to run the ad. “I’ll have a problem if no one buys it,” he said. “But I’ll have an even bigger problem if I’m swamped with too many orders.”
Alternative medicine business to address diabetes Another Annistonian who’s making a business out of dietary supplements — and detoxifications and other forms of alternative medicine — is Gudrun Van Dyke, owner of Alternative Health and Wellness on Woodstock Avenue. Van Dyke has been in the business for about nine years, and holds regular seminars on health topics. She contacted Business as Usual to point out that she has a seminar scheduled for Tuesday on alternative solutions to diabetes. For details, call 256-454-2214.
Web searches could drive new real-estate franchise Somebody’s searching for Calhoun County real estate on the Internet. That’s the message, at least, from RE/MAX, a wellknown real estate company that’s trying to get back into the business in Anniston and Oxford. RE/MAX is an international company that hires local agents to represent it under a franchise-like
agreement. RE/MAX gets boots on the ground in a housing market and the local agent gets the advantages of a national brand with a conspicuous marketing campaign, among other things. The last RE/MAX agent in the area went out of business a year ago and the company is determined to find a new one. A press release from the company says a “thorough analysis” of the Oxford and Anniston retail markets showed that this is a good place to be in the business. Asked what that thorough analysis entailed, RE/ MAX growth consultant Traci McKinley said the finding was based largely on Web traffic. “Our website is one of the most popular sites for people searching for real estate,” McKinley said. “When we see an area where there are a lot of searches and no agent to refer them to, we want to find an owner in that area.” (RE/MAX calls its franchisees “owners.”) McKinley didn’t have data on hand to show how many searches were done, where they came from, or how the area compares to other cities of the same size. There does seem to be an upswing in the local housing market lately. At the end of the year, available housing stock was down in Calhoun County. Sales actually dropped a little from 2010, but foreclosures were down, which local agents regarded as a good sign.
Despite filing, Samco still open County records show that Samco Oil LLC has dissolved, but customers of the Oxford-based 26-store gas station chain need not worry. It’s just a reorganization. Holly Whaley, manager of the company’s Hamric Drive headquarters, said the closure of the LLC makes way for the stores to be run by Sam’s Oil Company, a corporation created by company owner Sameer Qafeena. Switching from an LLC to a corporation is a typical move for a growing company. “It’s just something he’s been planning to do,” Whaley said.
Job gains have some rethinking their outlook WASHINGTON — An unexpectedly rosy jobs report set off a chain reaction Friday, upending economists’ gloomy predictions for the coming year, leading to a surge on Wall Street and potentially boggling the political calculus of the 2012 presidential campaigns. The surprise — that the unemployment rate had dipped for the fifth straight month, to 8.3 percent — was first reflected in the stock market, where the Dow Jones Industrial Average soared to its highest mark since the beginning of the financial crisis. The tech-heavy Nasdaq, meanwhile, hit an 11year high. By noon, President Barack Obama, whose reelection chances have been threatened by the nation’s economic woes, seized on the figures as proof that the recovery from the recession “is speeding up.” “This morning we
received more good news about our economy,” Obama said during an appearance at an Arlington, Va., firehouse. “Still, far too many Americans need a job or need a job that pays better than the one they have now. But the economy is growing stronger.” For the past few months, the stop-and-start economic recovery has shown tentative signs of unanticipated strength, and Friday’s report of another significant drop in the unemployment rate lent credibility to a bullish view, some economists said. “This is a game-changer,” Ian Shepherdson, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics, said of Friday’s employment figures. The nation’s economic forecasters, many of whom had predicted that the unemployment rate would remain stubbornly high this year, seemed to back off their gloomiest positions. — Washington Post
