Trussville native releases second single, ‘Get Even’
Cage Jennings was a store owner, fire chief, postmaster, butcher and fixer of things o’plenty. Jennings’ grocery and variety store was at the corner of present-day Old Springville Road and Sweeney Hollow Road. Eventually, Jennings moved his store to the corner of Old Springville Road and Brewster Road, where Clay City Hall is now. He called his store Jennings’ Super Saver. Super Saver included a post office, feed for livestock

PINSON – The Pinson City Council held a first reading of its proposed 2019-2020 fiscal year budget at the regular council meeting on Thursday, June 6. The proposed budget is in the amount of $3,375,000. Last year’s budget was $3,723,000. See BUDGET, Page 3

vantage of the extra space and rented out the rooms upstairs. The bustling store sold Gulf gas and many people still living in Clay can remember visiting the store on a daily basis. “I remember everybody would come to the store off the school bus,” Ron said. “I like to talk about it. Still, going to that area brings back all those memories, it’s neat to recognize.” Just as Andy Griffith had Barney, Mr. Jennings had a sidekick — Bud Zophie. Bud helped with everything, according to Cage’s son. It’s safe to say Jennings
was a well-rounded man. Along with all his titles, he also served as president of the Chalkville Civic Club. “Everybody respected dad, everybody knew him,” Ron said. Jennings passed away in 1995. He was in his early 80s. Although he is gone and the property where the old store sat is now the home of Clay City Hall, his memory lives on. The kids who went to Super Saver every day, for a Coke and some candy, still see their childhood when they look at Brewster Road. Ron Jennings sees a lot more: “That was home.”

The pursuit ended at the intersection of McIntyre Road and Old Springville road as the suspect lost control of the vehicle resulting in a one car accident.” The suspect fled from the scene on foot into a wooded area. The officer involved was transported to UAB hospital with minor injuries. Officers chased the suspect who is considered armed and dangerous until he crashed in Clay near Old Springville Road and Surrey Lane. Old Springville Road was closed at Elizabeth Drive while police conducted an overnight search.

SPRINGVILLE — Infrastructure was, once again, the topic of discussion for the Springville City Council Monday night. The discussion in the work session centered around the intersection of Highway 174 and Main Street. As the city has grown in recent years, the intersection has caused traffic congestion due to the use of stop signs instead of traffic lights. “The Strategic Planning Advisory Group looked closely at our comprehensive plan from 2010,” said Mayor William Isley. “One of the things identified in that plan was this four-way stop sign. I think it read, ‘Find better ways to get in and around Springville.’ It didn’t just pinpoint the stop sign. I guarantee the community has.” The current proposal involves the addition of turn lanes and a traffic light to
replace the stop signs. Isley noted as much as 65% of the budget for the improvements to the intersection could come from soonto-be available ALDOT funding. “I think it is time to take action at the four-way,” he said. In order to proceed, the council will have to hold a future vote to apply for a grant from ALDOT. The state funding is expected to come from revenues from the recent fuel taxes signed by Governor Ivey. In the regular session, the council addressed two other concerns about traffic in the city. Following up on a proposal from the May 20 meeting, the city approved up to $14,900 for the purchase and installation of six lighted signs at downtown crosswalks. Police Chief Belinda Crapet previously expressed concerns about the safety of pedestrians using the crosswalks. The crosswalk signage will be solar powered and contain lights to indicate the pedestrian
right-of-way and traffic speeds. Isley also addressed recent debates on social media regarding the use of security cameras in the city. He called on Crapet to discuss the use of the newly installed cameras. “They are not traffic cameras,” Crapet said. “They are security cameras that have tag reader capability.” The cameras can aid in criminal investigations and cannot be used for citations, according to the chief. In other business, city building inspector Asa Sargent presented information on bids from software firms to address cybersecurity concerns for the city. Sargent and Planning and Zoning director Maranda Nolen also presented information on other workflow software to be used by the city. Both potential contracts were given to City Attorney James Hill for review.

Hancock attorney releases statement, says client is 'sickened' by death of victim By Erica Thomas, managing editor
TRUSSVILLE — The attorney for the man accused in the March 28, 2019, shooting at the Trussville Cracker Barrel, spoke about the case. Attorney Richard S. Jaffe, with Jaffe, Hanle, Whisonant & Knight, P.C., said his client, Bryan Hancock, had no intention of harming anyone and that race did not play a part in the shooting death of Randy Dewayne Young. “As is often the case, once a full and fair hearing occurs, another side emerges as it did in this case," Jaffe said. "As I said even before the release of the video, Bryan acted in self-defense. While sitting in the passenger seat of his friend’s truck, the deceased began to strike him in the face, and this is supported by eye witness testimony." Jaffe said Hancock was attacked in the parking lot of Cracker Barrel. "Sadly, the driver of his truck had put on his brake lights and begun to exit the scene when Bryan was attacked,” Jaffe said. “We learned at the hearing that before that, the deceased had twice threatened him with bodily harm. His immediate reaction was to grab his friend’s weapon that was in the front seat to defend him-

The year-to-date city expenses for the 2018-2019 fiscal year are $3,496,651, and the year-end projection is set at $3,999,559. “The year-end projected, there’s always places where you’re a little over or a little under,” Mayor Hoyt Sanders said. “The budget was $3.7 (million), the projected is almost $4 (million), probably mostly due to the extra items we’ve done at the Rock School.” Sanders said that the difference between last year’s budget and the new budget mostly has to do with the money the city had saved over a long period of time for the Rock School project, which is the new location of the Pinson Public Library. “Last year we budgeted to dip into savings for the Rock School project, $400,000,

self." Hancock bonded out of jail and is being monitored by GPS. According to Judge Clyde Jones, he is on complete lockdown. Jaffe said Hancock feels bad about the incident and said it was never racially motivated. "Bryan knows that this has been devastating to the deceased’s family," Jaffe said. "He is sickened by it. Bryan and his friend had no intention of harming anyone. "No parking issue should ever result in violence. Road rage should never happen. This was initially portrayed as a racial case. Bryan was raised by two African-American fathers (his first died). The majority of his friends are African-American. Race had nothing to do with this tragic event." Hancock's family said Hancock felt he had to protect himself after getting into an al-
which goes away,” he said. “This year, we actually have budgeted $200,000 to go back into savings. We’ve been saving for quite some time to do the library.” Sanders said that the next two years will be a period of replenishing the city’s savings. In other news, the council members gave their support for the mayor to sign the Jefferson County Coalition of Mayors’ Good Neighbor Pledge, a pledge stating that each mayor in the county agrees not to “actively pursue a business to move from its current location in Jefferson County to (another) municipality.” “It is a pledge, it’s not a contract,” Sanders said. “We all want to be good neighbors and what the Mayors’ Association has looked at is that other regions in our state and in our country that are far surpassing our metro area on growth and
tercation with the victim. The family and Jaffe said it would be out of Hancock's character to use deadly force if he did not feel his life was in danger. “At the preliminary hearing we learned that Bryan is a teddy bear," said Jaffe. "He is soft-spoken and quiet. He does not overreact, lose his temper or act aggressively. In fact, Bryan has been calm his entire life. "Lately, he has suffered from depression and that has made him even more prone to loneliness. He has strong com-

According to the School Resource Division of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, SROs finished the year making 76 felony arrests, which included 17 terrorist threat investigations, 454 misdemeanor arrests, 83 traffic citations, and 2,009 traffic warnings. Sheriff Mark Pettway said the data shows his deputies and school resource officers kept Jefferson County schools safe throughout the school year. “The fine work by our School Resources Division is why we need officers in our schools,” said Pettway. “Having our deputies onsite during school hours and at events
helps us keep the citizens of Jefferson County safe, and with our eyes and ears we thwart any potential threat to our children, including any potential terrorist activity.” Additionally, deputies protected over 620,000 people at 20,435 events at schools and responded to nearly 4,000 calls. The SROs closed 1,551 cases last school year. The SROs go through extensive training, including Active Shooter training, “Too Good for Drugs” and “Gang Resistance Education Training” to learn how to deal with and protect our school children. This year alone they logged over 3,878 hours of training. The division was created to keep Jefferson County

munity and family support.” The family of the victim, Randy Young, said Young was shot in cold blood after an argument over parking escalated. They said Young did not come towards Hancock with aggression or looking for trouble. Young was hospitalized at UAB for treatment. He died two days later. Hancock is charged with capital murder.
TRUSSVILLE — Parts of Linden Street and Valley Road in Trussville are closed and will remain closed for 45 days. The closure is for the Valley Road extension that will parallel Interstate 59 and will go into the Pinnacle Shopping Center. The closure begins on Linden Street at Pineview Road.

quality of life issues have similar programs, where they try to work together rather than pull and poach from one another. So that’s really the root of this, looking at some other metro areas in the country and seeing how we can better work together.” While mayors do not require council approval to sign the pledge, Sanders asked the council for their will and direction, and a motion was passed unanimously to approve the mayor to sign the pledge. “I think it’s a good effort,” Councilor John Churchwell said. Councilor Dawn Tanner pointed out that the pledge does not prevent new businesses from coming into the city, and Sanders added that it does not prohibit the city from requesting businesses to add a new location in the city of Pinson. Additionally, the coun-
cil passed Resolution 19-21, appointing, recognizing and confirming six members to the Pinson Parks & Recreation Advisory Board. Tanner abstained from the vote, as she was one of the members being appointed to the board. Upon acceptance of the appointments, the members of the board will be Chris Ousley, Tinika Bryant, Breanna Evans, Mike Miles, Jon Garner, and Tanner will serve on the board as a non-voting, ex officio member, as well as the city council’s representative on the board. Each of the appointees will serve for a term to expire on June 30, 2020. Under “New Business,” the council passed a motion to release funds to the city’s local fire departments. Center Point and Palmerdale fire departments will receive $12,500 each, and Glenwood will receive $500. “We budget each year,
$12-and-a-half thousand to give to our two fire districts, Center Point and Palmerdale,” Sanders said. “Glenwood has a few properties, so we give them $500.” Sanders said that the city has helped the departments with specific projects during the last year, but these funds are unrestricted. The council held a public hearing for a report from Planning and Zoning concerning the condition of the property at 6807 Briarwood Drive. The property is under new ownership and a representative, Annette Jackson, came to speak on behalf of the property. “We acquired the property and we’re going to fix it up and make it presentable,” Jackson said. “We’ve done another project in that neighborhood and everybody’s been really happy. So most of the neighbors around there know me and they look
forward to us cleaning that up.” She said that she is expecting the improvements to the exterior to be finished in about three weeks and for the project to be completely finished in about two months. The council agreed to allow a stay of action pending further progress on the property. Upcoming Events in Pinson: June 20 – City Council to recognize PVHS Special Olympians at the regular council meeting July 3 – City Council meeting, moved from July 4 in honor of Independence Day July 20 – Beat the Heat at Turkey Creek Aug. 6 – National Night Out at Bicentennial Park The next meeting of the Pinson City Council will be Thursday, June 20, 2019, at 7 p.m., following a pre-council session at 6:30 p.m. The council meets at Pinson City Hall.

“Everything is as it should be,” Cork said. “I think it’s pretty remarkable you guys completed the construction of the new library at $1.2 million, and bought $112,000 in four vehicles and didn’t borrow any money to do it. You paid it out of your pocket, and that’s a great tribute to this council and what you’ve done. “Along those lines, I looked back just to see how long it’s been since you’ve had revenues exceed expenditures, and it’s since (2013), which I think is five years or so (that) every year your revenues have exceeded your expenditures…That’s really good for a city this size.” Cork added that the city of Clay paid off $295,000 in debt last year, in addition to constructing the library. This year, the city’s revenue exceeded its expenditures by $480,000, he said. “You did well,” Cork said. “Good job, Mayor and council!” Councilor Dennis Locke announced that the winners of the $500 school grants for the month of May were the principals of Clay Elementary, Clay-Chalkville Middle School

Connor Farmer, the owner of Highpointe Properties, LLC, proposed the new plan during the board’s meeting on Monday, June 10, 2019. “We looked at what we can do that could meet and compliment the surrounding property,” Farmer said. Connor Farmer addresses P&Z Board[/caption] Several concerned neighbors of the Hamilton property showed up to voice their opinions and to weigh in on what they hope to see in the future. Bob Parker, who lives on Dew Drive, is concerned about hours of operation for businesses that could move onto the property. “I’m retired and it really doesn’t matter to me,” Parker said. “But we’ve got a lot of families living on these streets. I would think if you’ve got people making noise at all hours that would be a problem.” Parker said he is concerned if a bar moves in, it could cause noise issues. He also said he is worried about light pollution. The board said existing ordinances would regulate lighting. If approved by the city council, the property across the street from Winn-Dixie would be zoned C-2 (Commercial). The plan includes a gas station, a new Trussville City Schools Board of Education building, a community park, footbridges and 6-8 lots to be used for commercial use. Farmer said some of the most valuable subdivisions in Birmingham have the same style convenience stores close to their entrances. He mentioned Greystone, Mount Laurel and Mountain Brook Village. “It doesn’t look like some of them that are ugly. It is attractive and it is nice. I am committed to selling him that store without any worry that it’s going to hurt any of the property that I have around it also,” Farmer said. Some residents are concerned about potential traffic issues with the development of the property. The committee told Farmer a traf-
and Clay-Chalkville High School. “As we do traditionally, we award (the May grants) to the principals,” Locke said. “We have a new principal at the elementary school. Dr. Gallant has retired, so the new principal’s name is Mr. Jacqnaii Finkley. So he’s the principal for the elementary school; the middle school will be Mr. Jason Wilson, who is the principal there; and the high school, of course, is Mr. Michael Lee. Congratulations to the principals for their $500 grants.” Center Point Fire Chief Gene Coleman made the council and attendees aware that one of the lieutenants at Center Point Fire Station 4 is to be presented with a Firefighter of the Year award from the American Legion on Friday, June 14. “Lt. Chris Brewis is at Fire Station 4 in Clay, on two of our shifts,” Coleman said. “He’s been nominated and will be presented with the Staff Sgt. Michael W. Hosey Post 205 and the Department of Alabama American Legion Firefighter of the Year Award this Friday in Montgomery. We submitted him for his actions in working with our youth programs in fire and exploring. He’s been very instrumental in keeping these young men; this
fic study would have to be updated with the new plans. The original proposal for the rezoning of the property included upscale, residential garden homes. That plan did not sit well with some residents in nearby neighborhoods. Farmer said he is willing to meet adjacent property owners in the middle, as long as changes are feasible. He has identified green spaces that would be kept and he has placed qualifiers on Lot 3, in his proposal. Concerned resident Kristie Jones asked that the P&Z Board place qualifiers on more than just Lot 3. “Thank you, guys, for listening to the community and coming up with a different plan that fits what the community has been saying,” Jones said. “…I think at this time it would be appropriate to include qualifiers for all C-2 property, not just the property next to the school board. The board agreed that it would be best to place more qualifiers on three of the lots on the property. The board worked with Farmer on expanding those qualifiers and restrictions. Restrictions on the property, if zoned C-2, are as follows: • Zoning will be restricted to a maximum of eight lots. Stovall said the markup of the property includes six lots, but two of them could be split if needed. • A park will be created by Highpointe that will include a walking trail, picnic tables, open fields and shade trees. The park would be gifted to the city of Trussville. The park is contingent on the city of Trussville agreeing to accept and upkeep the property. Highpointe also pointed out parts of the park may have to be used for water retention. • Highpointe Properties, LLC, would exchange the BOE property for a larger lot for the construction of offices. • Lot 3, which would sit between the BOE property and the gas station, would be restricted in its use from fast food restaurants with a drive-thru (with the exception of coffee shops), convenience stores, massage parlors, auto re-

From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE -- A man and woman from Moody were arrested by Trussville police following a chase on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. The chase began on Gadsden Highway, according to Officer Ben Short. "Around 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, an officer stopped a vehicle for a traffic offense," Short said. "After running both occupants through NCIC it was determined they were both wanted at different agencies and showed active warrants." According to police reports, the officer approached the suspect vehicle who then fled the scene. A short chase ensued with suspect vehicle wrecking on the on ramp at Interstate

pair businesses, carwash businesses, businesses that sell automobiles, ATVs, marine vehicles or mini-warehouses. Financial institutions with a drive-thru component do not fall under the restrictions of this provision. • Lots 1, 5 and 6, would be restricted in use from convenience stores, massage parlors, auto repair businesses, carwash businesses, businesses that sell automobiles, ATVs, marine vehicles or mini-warehouses. Financial institutions with a drive-thru component do not fall under the restrictions of this provision • Highpoint Properties, LLC, would work with DOT officials and adjacent property owners to install a traffic signal at the entrance of the property. Stovall said DOT would ultimately have to agree with the need for a light. • The convenience store planned for the property will have an architectural style that would include a pitched roof with asphalt shingles or a pitched standing seam metal roof on the store and canopy. It would also have an all brick or rock exterior and would have all brick or rock columns. A representative for the developer, David Stovall, said the original plan would’ve, immediately, nearly doubled property values in the Dew Gardens subdivision. The majority of residents at the P&Z Board meeting said they like the new plan better than the previous plan. If the city ultimately approves the rezoning plan, all stipulations would stand, even if Highpointe Properties, LLC, backed out. Stovall said if the city does not approve the new rezoning plan, the developers will go back to the original plan with mixed residential and commercial zoning. The Trussville City Council will consider the rezoning during their July 9, 2019 meeting.
David Stovall, with Engineering Design Group, brought a previous plan to compare to the new plan for both properties. One of the pieces of property was recently annexed into Trussville. The 10 acres sits in St. Clair County, so the state legislature had to approve the annexation. Now the developer, Black Orchid Equity LLC, wants to add garden homes to the piece of land. There are already garden homes in the area, particularly on Highlands Drive and Overlook Drive. The other property, between Lakeridge Drive and Blackjack Road, is currently zoned R2. Stovall said the developer would like to have the property rezoned to RG, in order to develop less property while still building the same amount of homes in the area. Stovall said the goal is to update the property to make it possible for a profit to be made. “The green space that’s being left is much larger,” said Stovall. Concerned homeowner, Ellen Lockhart, believes the developer is only keeping more green space because the terrain on the undeveloped parts of Carrington is full of ridges and would be very costly to develop. “We have a lot of concerns about what that would do about our property values, congestion, noise and the contractors haven’t been good about cleaning up after themselves,” said Lockhart. Stovall said traffic would not be any different because the developer does not want to increase the amount of homes going into the subdivision, but rather wants to put the same amount of lots on less property. Lockhart said Black Orchid has already shown it is not looking for what is best for the community. “We are concerned because the current developer in Carrington has continued to allow builders to build sub-standard homes in Carrington,” Lockhart said. “Because of this our average home price has gone down.” Stovall said some R2 properties would stay in Carrington Lakes.

the 640 lots remaining on the master plan, the new master plan shows one less. We’re not adding more homes.” He also said RG homes are not any less valuable than R1 or R2 homes. Stovall said existing covenants in Carrington Lakes will govern the size of homes built. Only 10 minutes into his presentation, Stovall was met with strong opposition by vocal residents. “There’s a bunch of lots out there in Carrington Lakes sitting with nothing on them. And the reason for that is that there’s not a market for it,” Stovall said. The room erupted with unhappy residents saying, “that’s false!” and “that’s not true!” Stovall said that over the years, several developers have tried to add homes to Carrington Lakes, and that none of the plans have been successful because of the opposition from the people who already live there. “We worked for everybody that’s had their hands on this property so far,” he said. Regions took ownership after the financial downfall. They sold it as a toxic asset. “Frankly, every time we came here it was a ‘no’ so, they weren’t able to do anything on the property,” said Stovall. Homeowners who attended the meeting said they have been misled by past and present developers who have promised a high-quality product and delivered a lesser quality product. They also say landowners have intimidated them throughout the process. “They re-write covenants without resident comments. They try to strong arm us and basically, residents are just tired of it. “We bought there because we had a certain standard and they have no regard to the standard that was originally there and that people bought into,” said Lockhart. Stovall said covenants and issues with the homeowner’s association are separate from the zoning issue, which is being discussed at this time. He said the developer has to do something to create revenue. “Quite frankly, he’s not in it for fun. At some point we have got to do something because right now, there is nothing positive going on,” said Stovall. The new plan for the property between Lakeridge Drive and Blackjack Road could include walking trails, a
t-ball field, a new clubhouse and pool and a place for outdoor recreation, according to Stovall. During the public hearing portion of the meeting, several residents stood before the board to voice concerns including the quality of the homes versus the quantity of the homes. Janice Brough, who live on Lakeridge Drive, said she believes Carrington Lakes is not experiencing an issue when it comes to selling homes. “Lakeridge is zoned R2 and they are building houses all down the block,” said Brough. “They are selling before they’re constructed, they’re selling at a 95% selling rate.” Other speakers said the community is against the current rezoning proposal in great numbers. Ellen Lockhart spoke up during the public hearing and said there are homes already being built in the subdivision that do not fit the standards of living expected in Carrington Lakes. “There is a specific home right now being built. It’s a slab house. It’s a complete misfit, it’s a disgrace to the look of the neighborhood,” Lockhart said. She continued to say the developer has not made himself available to people with concerns. “He keeps reminding us he is the biggest property owner within Carrington Lakes,” she said. He wants complete control. He has had complete control. “We feel like we can’t trust him. He’s proven we cannot trust him and what he says. We have been bullied by him enough and we are not willing to take any more from him. We will stay strong. I think we’re stronger than ever against wanting this to happen,” Lockhart said. Glenn Hamlin, who lives in Carrington Lakes, said he is concerned about a dam that is leaking in Lake 6. He said this could pose a safety issue for any development around the dam. Some residents said if the rezoning is approved, they will consider moving. In the end, the Planning and Zoning Board voted to recommend the city council approve the development east of Lakeview Terrace, with one abstain The board voted unanimously to recommend the city council deny the development off Blackjack Road. The Trussville City Council will take up the issue in their regular meeting on July 9, 2019.

Trussville business owner expresses gratitude to city employees By Tanna M. Friday, contributing writer
TRUSSVILLE — To Trussville resident, Chris Rigdon, the idea of community comes from the sense of responsibility we have for each other. Taken from the scripture of Luke 12:48, Rigdon shares that ‘to whom much is given, from him much is expected.’ “It is important to maintain the connection of relationships to ensure a healthy, thriving community,” said Rigdon. “It is our responsibility as citizens to say thank you and honor those individuals who serve our community.” The idea is to host an Appreciation Day to honor Trussville’s 257 city employees, which will take place on Saturday, June 29, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Trussville Country Club located at 7905 Roper Road. A golf tournament, lunch and many activities will be provided for city employees and their families. The golf tournament is scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. “It’s an opportunity for our business community to
support our city employees and say, ‘Thank you,’” said Rigdon. “I want to give back and encourage other businesses in the community to do so, as well. “Not only do our first responders work hard for our community each day, but also our mayor, council and other city employees that we don’t see. All of them deserve recognition. This appreciation event is just a ‘thank you’ for everything they do.” Mayor Choat shared that Rigdon approached him last year with the idea. “This appreciation event allows myself and the council to show our appreciation to all of our city employees,” said Choat. “It’s important to remember and thank those who serve the city for a job well done. Positive reinforcement goes a long way in today’s world. “It will be a great time of fellowship between families that may not have the opportunity to get together,” he continued. “This also gives our employees a chance to meet new friends and their families outside a typical work environment.”
City employees will not only receive well-deserved recognition from local businesses and city officials, but all employees will be provided complimentary shoes by PUMA Cobra Golf, thanks to Rich Santagata Jr. and the Trussville Country Club. “We want to spotlight the Trussville City employees and say, ‘Thank you,’ you are the heart of our great city’s success,” said Rigdon. Rigdon shared that the goal of this first annual appreciation event is to bring awareness to those who may not know who keeps the city running and to build
better relationships between city officials and the people of this community. “It is an honor and a privilege to host this appreciation event and we encourage surrounding businesses to join in this occasion by expressing their gratitude,” he said. This year’s title and presenting sponsor is Serra Toyota/Serra Mazda, who made a donation of $5,000 towards the appreciation event. “Being a part of this community is ingrained in me,” said John McDonald, general manager of Serra Toyota/Serra Mazda. “I and several of our employ-
ees live in Trussville. Serra Toyota and Serra Mazda believes in community and giving back. “Just this last month, we had food trucks at both of our dealer locations feeding the community lunch and giving away hundreds of free oil changes,” he added. “Without a doubt, we understand that the city employees are truly the backbone of the community, and a lot of times, they don’t get the recognition they deserve. “When I heard about this event to show appreciation to the city employee’s, it was a no-brainer and we didn’t even hesitate. We wanted to get involved immediately.” Both the city of Trussville and the Trussville Country Club are thankful for the sponsors who have already donated, including Serra Toyota/Serra Mazda, The Trussville Tribune, Moe’s BBQ, McSweeney Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram, BOE Mortgage, and Paul Davis Restoration. There are several ways that Trussville businesses can participate, including
events, sponsorships or through a monetary donation. All funds raised will go towards the Trussville City Employee Scholarship Fund, which will be presented to the mayor and council on the day of the event. Sponsorship opportunities include: • Tent Sponsorship $500: bring the company tent and enjoy interacting with city employees and their families. Deadline for sign up is Saturday, June 29. Set up is 7 a.m. before the golf shotgun start; • Hole Sponsorship $250: includes signage with company name placed at one, or more, of the 18 hole course. Deadline for sign up is Wednesday, June 26; and • Donations: any dollar amount is welcome up until Saturday, June 29. If your business is interested in participating in the First Annual Trussville City Employee Appreciation Day, please send your requests to Ruwena Healy at rhealy@marketing247. net.

TRUSSVILLE -- The iconic Wheeler house at 401 Main Street was demolished on Saturday to make way for a planned unit development (PUD) which has been proposed for the property. Mrs. Wheeler was well known in Trussville for teaching piano lessons to local children. Her piano can be seen in the photos below. The Wheeler house has quite a history, according to local lore. The house was originally two structures that housed railroad working families. The two structures were combined to form the Wheeler House at its first location which was on North Chalkville Road near Mountain Drive.

The house was later moved to the north side of Main Street almost directly across the road from its final location on the south side of Main Street next to Captain D’s. The new development, a senior living facility which was approved by the prior city administration in 2014, is called Creekside at Trussville. The facility will be operated by The Cottages which operates 10 senior living facilities in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. The original plans presented to the council called
for an assisted living facility, independent living apartments for senior citizens and a strip mall on Main Street. The 9,500 square foot strip mall would include retail space and a 3,500 square foot restaurant with a pick-up window. The restaurant would share a kitchen with the assisted living facility behind the strip mall. The developer of Creekside, Cliff White, returned to a council workshop in 2018 seeking a $3.4 million investment from the city for the project. Among the improvements requested by White was a walking trail along Pinchgut Creek connecting the senior living facility with the Entertainment District. To date, the council has taken no action on the request.

TRUSSVILLE — The renovations at the McDonald's on Chalkville Road in Trussville are coming along and that's evident from the road. On Wednesday, June 5, 2019, crews were seen sprucing up the golden arches using a crane and a bucket. The pole holding the "M" logo was painted. The legendary playland dome is gone and parts for the new playland have arrived on site. The exterior of the building was completely renovated. The roof and siding were removed and replaced. On the inside of the fastfood restaurant, there will be a new drink-system, extra outside seating, and a state-ofthe-art air-conditioning and heating system. “We’re doing a total remodel of the restaurant,” said area manager Mary Pease in April. “Everything top to bottom. It’s going to start right out here. We plan to run the lobby for another three weeks, that’s our time frame for keeping the lobby open. (Then) we’ll shut the lobby down

The renovation will also see new digital menu boards installed in the restaurant, both inside and outside of the facility. The Trussville McDonalds was built in 1988 and shortly
only the need to upgrade an aging facility, but also to keep up with changing customer needs and expectations. The new facility will boast several features that are in keeping with the rise of the digital age and an on-demand world. “It will be the McDonald’s new image,” said Pease. “There will be the kiosks in the lobby; we’ll have four of them where they can do their own ordering, table service. If customers order on the kiosk (in the dining area) or at the front counter, we’ll bring their food out to them.”
after, then-owner Max Cooper added the domed playland to the facility. More than one generation has passed through those golden arches on its way to adulthood. It was the first and the biggest attraction of its kind in the city. “Us older people that have been around, our children grew up with it, and their grandchildren have been in it,” said Pease. “It’s history in Trussville. It’s the McDonalds where the big playland dome is. So, it was a landmark, that is what it was. It has been here 30 years.”

tions. I’m disappointed because I enjoyed my time in Trussville, but I understand the business decision.” The Trussville location opened in April of 2018 and was located in the Homestead Village shopping center.

Louise V King july
28, 1926 ~
9, 2019 ( age 92)
Louise V. King journeyed peacefully to be with her Lord on June 9, 2019, at nearly 93 years of age. Born in Birmingham, Alabama on July 28, 1926, Louise spent most of her life–over 70 years–with her great love, Cecil King. We find peace knowing she was welcomed at the gates of heaven by the arms of her beloved Jesus and by loved ones who preceded her: parents, Roy and Maude Scott, and brothers, Howard, Buford, R.E. and Bob-
by. She is both mourned and celebrated with love and gratitude by her faithful and loving husband, Cecil King, by her children, Eddie (Patricia) King, Charles (Sharon) King and Arrice (Ken) Faught, and by her 9 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Deeply devoted to her family, Louise (Granna) longed for each of her children and her children’s children to come to know, serve, and love the Lord with all their hearts. Tucked carefully between pages of her Bible are pictures of family and friends, notes, articles and obituaries, verses underlined and noted–a history of quiet devotion and prayer. Louise also had a passion for music, a love she passed on to family members and friends alike, singing in her church choir for many years. Cecil and Louise raised their family in Center Point, where they were members of the First Baptist Church. They later moved to Moody, where they spent nearly two decades as members of Bethel Baptist Church before settling more recently in Tuscaloosa and faithfully attending Taylorville Baptist. The celebration of Louise’s life will be held at Bethel Baptist Church in Moody on Wednesday, June 12, with visitation at 12:30 and service at 2 pm. The family requests your consideration of a donation, in lieu of flowers to the Gideons Masonic Lodge No. 705, 480 3rd Ave, Odenville, AL 35120. And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. Colossians 1:9-12.
Kindness can change a life By Mike Ennis, Faith Community Fellowship Springville Campus Pastor
Sometimes life is filled with a lot of hurt and darkness. There are so many who hide their pain. They are people that you see every day. You pass them in the grocery store, your office and even your church. It is a good reminder that we all have the opportunity, if we’ll watch, to be hope and healing to others. Sue’s story, though overwhelming, shows how God can redeem any situation. Here it is…. I am a middle child and moved a lot the first 10 years of my life. That might sound glamorous, but it was everything but that. My most formative years were difficult because my father was an abusive alcoholic. As I look back, it is no wonder that I was often found hiding—at home, at school, with relatives. My mom just told everyone I was shy. Things got so bad that my dad had to be placed in a mental hospital for a while. To make things worse, we lived in poverty in government housing, known as the “projects”. I always made sure I was never alone at home with my dad, even if it meant being outside for hours in the dark ¬¬the dark was safer. When I was 11, I attended a church with a relative and after an event my teacher took me home
with all the other girls that lived in nice homes. I was so ashamed and embarrassed when they found out where I lived that I never returned. My mom divorced my dad and remarried. My step¬dad was a much better financial provider but we soon learned he had issues too¬¬...physical abuse. Again, I remember many nights when my sister and I ran out of the house to hide until his fits of rage passed. At best, life was dysfunctional. In my high school years, I got involved in a relationship with a 19-year-old (I was 15). I made many mistakes during this time, including a teen pregnancy that ended with an abortion. I was tormented by that choice for another 15 years...convinced that even God would never want anything to do with me for destroying the life of my child. I met a wonderful man in my 20’s and we married soon after. We had two children within the first five years. Being a Mom & Dad was life¬ changing for both of us. Though I was still buried in guilt and shame, my wonderful husband knew we needed God in our life. It took years for me to see and experience God’s grace but today I am free. My life Bible verse became Romans 8:28 – “And we know that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who

are called according to His purpose.” I wish I had more space to tell you all the stories of how God has healed so many relationships in my life. God took the mess in my life and has turned it into something beautiful. In fact, I have frequent opportunities to share my story and help many more young women. I am so grateful that in my brokenness, I found forgiveness and healing. So can you! If you need help, there are some great churches in this community who will love and help you or you can feel free to reach out to me. We do not and cannot always know what is going on in the lives of other people. What we CAN do is be sensitive to those around us and chose to be one God can use to help others find hope and healing in their situation. Find someone today for whom you can show kindness. It might just change their life!
TRUSSVILLE — The oldest member of First Baptist Trussville was shown love from her fellow church members for her 100th birthday on June 1, 2019. Earline Bain was celebrated on Saturday, June 1, at Sherry’s Restaurant. Friends and family were in attendance. She received a mailbox full of cards on Saturday. She spent the entire day reading through over 100 cards. The following Monday, several First Baptist members, Suellen Edmondson, Nyla Massey, Brenda Branch-Pendleton and Janet Matthews, along with seasoned adult minister Bob Smith, celebrated with her at her home. Bain has lived in Trussville her entire life and has been a member of First Baptist since her early teen years. She remembers attending
First Baptist when it was on Highway 11, near the cemetery. Bain said she was about 10-years-old when she was saved and baptized in Sulphur Springs. Bain was married for 67 years and had three children. She now has six grandchil-
dren, 11 great-grandchildren and seven great-great-grandchildren. Earline still lives in Trussville with her daughter, Betty. When asked what her secret to looking so well at age 100, she said, “Good, clean living!”

what an honor being named to the first team is. “The Alabama Sports Writers Association take nominations from all over the state and pick who they think are the best players in our state,” said Coach Mauldin. “The list is full of the best players our state has to offer with most, if not all, future high-level college players. “Competition for this honor is unreal. You can just look at the list of players and it blows you away. Most of
From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
the kids have already committed to big-time programs like Auburn, Alabama, Texas, Southern Miss, LSU, Ole Miss, Samford and Jacksonville State. I think the list shows everybody the caliber of players you’re competing against.” The stats for both players speak to just how difficult it is to receive this honor. Michael has a 1.64 ERA, 7-2 record, 64 innings pitched, 36 hits and 108 strikeouts which is the third most in school history. “Michael’s work ethic is one of the best on the team,” said Coach Mauldin. “He works hard in the weight room and is one of our best guys when it comes to conditioning. He takes his pitching schedule very serious and works extremely hard when it comes to the long toss program, bull pens, and everything we do for in between his outings.” Tyler Mauldin has a .301 batting average, 32 runs scored, 9 doubles, .445 slugging percentage, 14 stolen bases and 87 assists which is the third most in school history.

With success like that, which has only come through hard work and dedication, Mauldin has become an inspiration to his younger siblings. “I know both of his younger sisters love to watch him play,” said Coach Mauldin. “They are his biggest
fans. They have spent years of traveling around the southeast watching him. They have shagged balls in the outfield late at night just to be around him.

She is the Hewitt baseball super fan.”
