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:

Guard killed in Mississippi prison riot, others injured Associated Press NATCHEZ, Miss. — A guard at a southwest Mississippi prison died Sunday and several other employees were injured during a disturbance involving hundreds of inmates that continued into the evening, authorities and the prison’s operator said. Emily Ham, a spokeswoman for the Adams County Sheriff ’s Office, confirmed Sunday evening that the guard died while being transported to a hospital. She said Corrections Corp. of America, the prison’s private operator, was working Sunday night with law-enforcement authorities to bring the disturbance under control. CCA said in a news release that the disturbance began at around 2:40 p.m. The news release said five employees were transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries and one was taken offsite. It said “the disturbance is contained within the secure perimeter of the facility, with no threat to public

He said he would like to see any payments the state government gets from the BP oil spill to go toward refunding the Alabama Trust Fund. Former Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim James said the money in the trust fund should be used for its intended purpose — to help future generations. “There’s not much difference between the Alabama politicians and your Greek politicians,” James said, referring to the European country’s debt crisis. “Same politicians, just different continent. Instead of looking adversity in the eye, just robbing future generations.” James said politicians should make the tough cuts to put the budget in line with the money the state actually has.

The library will be offering new programs during the summer, Ross said, to include additional reading programs, a puppet show and a poetry class. Also, due to the hiring of an assistant, the library will be able to open five days a week, up from three, Ross said. For more information about the library or about summer events, call 256-8317069.

Conservative donors slow to back Romney campaign By Jack Gillum Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney and his party raised a sizable $40 million last month from donors who want him to replace President Barack Obama. But even as Romney solidifies his position as the eventual GOP nominee, many supporters who backed his primary election challengers have not yet come to his aid. An Associated Press review of campaign finance data found that only a few hundred donors who contributed to candidates like Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum changed course and gave to Romney’s campaign or the Republican Party in April. That’s as GOP stalwarts and some former rivals have called on supporters to rally around Romney’s White House run. Romney is hardly hurting for cash, having reported more than $61 million in the bank by the end of April. But financial reports released Sunday reveal a potential struggle for Romney in persuading his party’s more
conservative donors to open their wallets for him, although there are still more than five months until Election Day. Out of more than 50,000 donors who gave to other GOP candidates like Gingrich, Santorum and Texas Gov. Rick Perry since the start of the nomination race, fewer than 600 appeared to write checks to Romney in April, the AP’s review of Federal Election Commission reports found. Roughly the same number contributed to the Republican National Committee, which is now helping Romney’s campaign. Romney has been aggressively courting conservatives, speaking out recently against China’s “one-child policy” and addressing graduates at the evangelical Liberty University. Last month, Romney told the website Breitbart.com that the news media were involved in a “vast left-wing conspiracy to work together to put out their message and to attack me.” Wealthy donors like former Santorum supporter Foster Friess are now supporting Romney, realizing that his siz-
able delegate count and financial strength all but guarantee his nomination this summer. Other eventual Romney donors had already given early to his rivals, partly to support a spirited debate during the primary season. Willis J. Johnson, founder of auto dealer Copart USA, contributed to Perry and Gingrich last year because he personally liked Perry and admired Gingrich’s insistence on quizzing Romney during debates. “I think this administration is trying to take money away from small businesses,” Johnson said, in part through tax hikes. Other conservatives, however, have been warier. One blog post last week on the conservative RedState.com, referring to Romney’s Liberty speech, asked: “Mr. Romney said that marriage is between one man and one woman. He got deafening applause. But where was he when it mattered?” About a quarter of Romney April-turnaround donors gave checks of $2,500 or more, including amounts up to the maximum $30,800 legally
allowed to a political party. In March — just before Romney started raising general election cash — about 300 former Santorum and Gingrich supporters contributed to the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign. Santorum dropped out of the race in April and Gingrich in May, even though Romney’s momentum was growing before then. A report detailing the contributions of Romney’s joint-fundraising committee is due out this summer. A Romney spokeswoman did not immediately respond to requests seeking comment late Sunday. The AP analyzed federal contributions since January 2011, cross-matching donors’ names and addresses with those on Romney’s or the GOP’s April reports. Those filings, per federal election requirements, exclude donors who gave fewer than $200 per candidate each election — although most of Romney’s campaign contributions ($8.9 million) came from donors who gave $200 or more.
