Lenny and Mary Arnold have taken care of 101 foster children over 27 years. Mary retains painful memories of being passed over by couples when she was an orphaned child and decided she wanted to help children without parents.
Fostering love: M By RON COLQUITT For The Record
ary Arnold recalls being “lined up like cattle” when she was 5 years old and hoping she would be chosen from the lineup to be adopted by a loving couple. That painful memory still lingers for Arnold, 62. But it’s led to her and her husband, Lenny, fostering 101 children over the past 27 years. The 101st, and last, is a 9-year-old girl living with them near Alexander City.
“Married couples would come and they would look you over from head to toe and just decide if you had the right color of hair, color of eyes and decide if they were going to adopt you,” Mary Arnold said. “They would look you up and down and decide if they wanted you. They would pick one and the rest of us was sent back to our room. I got to where I refused to come out of my room because I knew I wasn’t going to be picked.” Arnold was the youngest of five siblings. The oldest, a girl, was 9. She said her mother died when she was 5 and her father ran away because he was an
Local couple has fostered 101 children over a quarter century alcoholic. “He severely abused me,” she said. “I was not a nice child, I was angry. I hated adults, didn’t trust adults, and pointed out that they were mean, hateful and lied. My family was ripped apart in front of me. I was raised in the (foster care) system.” Arnold was bounced from foster home to foster home until she was 18, when she met and married Lenny, now 63, who is an ordained minister and pastors New Concord Baptist Church in Dadeville. The couple have two biological children and one adopted child. See FOSTER • Page A5
Willow Point roads could be the subject of an amendment to the Alabama Constitution after the Tallapoosa County Commission approved Monday a request to create a private road maintenance district. “I was contacted by Russell Lands and received documentation (about a constitutional amendment),” commissioner Steve Robinson said. “Basically it is a constitutional amendment to authorize Willow Point to assess a road maintenance charge on their residents.” The amendment, if ultimately approved by the legislature and a statewide referendum, would create a private corporation to collect maintenance fees from residents in the district and perform maintenance, repair and construction of roads and bridges in Willow Point Estates. County attorney Thomas Radney said he sees no liability to the county in the proposed amendment. “These will remain private roads,” Radney said. “At the request of Russell Lands, these roads will be their responsibility to maintain. I don’t see any downside to the county.” Longtime Tallapoosa County Revenue Commission employee Paula Burton, who has retired, was honored by See COMMISSION • Page A5

Feds call Alabama prisons unconstitutional, threaten lawsuit STAFF REPORT TPI Staff
The U.S. Department of Justice on April 3 issued a scathing report on conditions in Alabama’s men’s prisons, calling them unconstitutional and threatening a lawsuit within 49 days if the state does not show it is correcting what it said is a systemic failure to protect inmates from violence and sexual abuse. Gov. Kay Ivey responded by saying the state is developing solutions to make the overcrowded penal system safer, pointing out she has proposed building three new prisons at a cost of $900 million and asked the legislature for $31 million to hire 500 new corrections officers. Between February 2017 and January 2018, the DOJ said it interviewed 55 Alabama Department of Corrections staff members and 270 inmates, conducted phone interviews with 500 inmates and family members and got 400 letters from prisoners. Through those interviews and via subpoenas for state records, the DOJ report described rampant rape, stabbings, beatings, drug use, open sewers and an indifference among prison officials to protect inmates. “The United States Constitution bans ‘cruel and unusual punishments’ but the conditions found in our investigation of Alabama prisons provide reasonable cause to believe there is a flagrant disregard of that injunction,” U.S. Attorney Richard Moore said in a release. “The failure to respect the rule of law by providing humane treatment for inmates in Alabama prisons is a poor reflection on those of us who live and work in Alabama. We are better than this. We do not need to tarry very long assessing blame but rather commit to righting this wrong and spare our state further embarrassment. The task is daunting but one we must embrace now without reservation.” As a result of an investigation that began in October 2016, the DOJ said it has reasonable cause to believe conditions in Alabama’s
men’s prisons violate the Eighth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and the prisons fail to protect prisoners from prisoneron-prisoner violence and prisoner-on-prisoner sexual abuse. “This massive undertaking alleges constitutional troubles in the Alabama Department of Corrections which are serious, systemic and in need of fundamental and comprehensive change,” U.S. Attorney Jay Town said in a release. “That being said, I have great confidence in the State of Alabama’s resolve to correct the prison system’s problems. The commitment by Gov. Ivey, (ADOC) Commissioner (Jeff) Dunn and so many others in the state’s leadership to affirmatively address these inherited issues offers great promise of our development of a meaningful remedy.” The DOJ said Alabama has one of the most overcrowded prison systems in the nation. According to recent data published by the ADOC, the state houses approximately 16,327 prisoners in major correctional facilities designed to hold 9,882. At Staton Correctional Facility near Wetumpka, a medium-security prison designed for 508 prisoners, 1,385 inmates were incarcerated in November 2018 for an occupancy rate of 272.6 percent, the DOJ said. Exacerbating the security problem, the ADOC acknowledged in February it needs to hire more than 2,000 correctional officers and 125 supervisors to adequately staff its men’s prisons, the DOJ said. According to the ADOC’s staffing report from June 2018, Alabama’s prisons employ 1,072 of 3,326 authorized correctional officer slots. In fiscal year 2017, a correctional officer at St. Clair with a base pay of $38,426.60 earned almost $80,000 in overtime. “The violations are severe, systemic and exacerbated by serious deficiencies in staffing and supervision; overcrowding; ineffective housing and classification protocols; inadequate incident reporting; inability to control the flow of contraband into
and within the prisons, including illegal drugs and weapons; ineffective prison management and training; insufficient maintenance and cleaning of facilities; the use of segregation and solitary confinement to both punish and protect victims of violence and/ or sexual abuse; and a high level of violence that is too common, cruel, of an unusual nature and pervasive,” the report said. The DOJ report cited examples, including these from one week in September 2017: • Two inmates in the Hot Bay at Bibb Correctional Facility stood guard while two other prisoners stabbed a victim to death and wounded another. Prisoners banged on the locked doors to get the attention of security staff. When an officer finally responded, he found the prisoner lying on the floor bleeding from his chest. One Hot Bay inmate told investigators he could still hear the prisoner’s screams in his sleep. • That same day at Staton, a prisoner was stabbed multiple times by another prisoner and had to be medically evacuated by helicopter to a nearby hospital. The following day, at Elmore, a prisoner was beaten and injured by four other prisoners. • A prisoner asleep in the St. Clair honor dormitory, which is reserved for prisoners with good behavior, was awakened when two prisoners began beating him with a sock filled with metal locks. • At Staton, a prisoner threatened a correctional officer with a knife measuring 7 inches long. • At Fountain, a prisoner set fire to another prisoner’s bed blanket while he was sleeping. • A prisoner at Easterling was forced at knifepoint to perform oral sex on two other prisoners. • At Bullock, a prisoner was found unresponsive on the floor by his bed and later died due to an overdose of synthetic marijuana. The DOJ said conditions at Draper in October 2017 included open sewage running by a pathway used to access the facility, reports of standing sewage water on the floors, and rats and maggots in the kitchen. The DOJ said it has reason to believe the state has underreported inmate deaths. According to the ADOC’s public
reports, 24 prisoners were murdered between January 2015 and June 2018 but investigators uncovered three more unreported homicides. “These unreported homicides provide reasonable cause to believe that ADOC’s homicide rate is higher than what ADOC has publicly reported,” the DOJ report said. “There are numerous instances where ADOC incident reports classified deaths as due to ‘natural’ causes when, in actuality, the deaths were likely caused by prisoner-on-prisoner violence. “ADOC is frequently unable to protect its prisoners from violence despite having advance notice that the prisoners may be in danger. Our investigation uncovered numerous instances where prisoners explicitly informed prison officials that they feared for their safety and were later killed. In other cases, prisoners were killed by individuals with a lengthy history of violence against other prisoners.” The DOJ said a subpoena revealed 30 deaths of various causes from January 2015 through 2017 the state did not disclose. Ivey said the DOJ report identified many areas the state is aware of and she vowed to work with the federal government. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to public safety, making certain that this Alabama problem has an Alabama solution,” she said in a release. Dunn said the ADOC has been working to improve correctional officer hiring and retention; developing effective prison management, including efforts to curtail the entry of contraband; and replacing an outdated prison system with stateof-the-art correctional facilities. “ADOC voluntarily assisted the DOJ in every reasonable way with the investigation,” Dunn said in a release. “Our primary objective is to ensure each facility provides a humane, secure and safe environment for inmates and that reforms already in place and proposed bring about positive, tangible changes throughout the prison system. Gov. Ivey’s commitment to working closely with the legislature to resolve this generational problem will ultimately lead to a 21st century prison system.”

Annexation the Central of Georgia rail line and along Sturdivant Creek. To access the development, River Cove LLC, which owns the development, needs a new bridge built at the end of Sturdivant Road to replace the wooden one that is currently closed to the public. River Cove LLC has committed to spending nearly $1 million to build a bridge across Sturdivant Creek to the cityâ€™s specifications, according to the city. Before talks with the Tallapoosa County Commission stalled on the platting of the development, developers were considering helping with repaving Sturdivant Road. Brewer said the nine-tenths of a mile of Sturdivant Road would cost about $500,000 to repair the base and repave. For the areas being annexed, Alexander City will gain property taxes for its schools and general fund while Tallapoosa County Schools will lose funding. Tallapoosa County Schools currently receive two property taxes in the Sturdivant area. â€œDistrict 1 and Special 1 (property taxes) go to Tallapoosa County Schools,â€? Tallapoosa County revenue commissioner Eva Middlebrooks said. â€œIt is 10.5 mils total. District 1 is 3 mils and Special 1 is 7.5 mils. If those properties are annexed, that goes away and will be replaced by the Alex City General Fund, which is 7.5 mils, and Alex City Schools, which is 7.5 mils. All of that goes to Alex City to distribute. The city would get 15 mils on those properties it had not been getting on those properties.â€? Middlebrooks said property taxes in the annexed area would increase $75 per $100,000 of the countyâ€™s appraised value of the property. Assuming 90 homes are built at an average appraised value of $300,000, Middlebrooks calculated Alexander City would reap about $20,000 a year in property taxes if the annexation is approved. â€œVacant lots and rentals

The City of Alexander City passed a resolution to ask the legislature to allow it to annex parcels of property near Sturdivant Road. The section in yellow is already in the city limits while the sections in blue are proposed for annexation. Left out of the annexation is about half of Sturdivant Road, the only access to a development coming to the area. Also left out are seven homes in the Forest Hills Road and Forest Hills Drive area.
would be different,â€? she said. â€œThey would be $150 per $100,000 because they donâ€™t qualify for exemptions.â€? City revenue manager Ward Sellers told the Alexander City City Council at its March 18 meeting the city could see a best-case scenario of $360,000 in annual economic impact at the full buildout of Minerâ€™s Cove, which would take up to 17 years. â€œThatâ€™s building permits, sales taxes on building materials, the water impact fee and property taxes,â€? Sellers said. Sellers said it would cost the city $91,000 annually to maintain infrastructure in the newly annexed area after complete buildout.
The proposed annexation would also cost county schools 20 homes it currently receives property tax from, according to information from the Alabama Department of Education, and students living in those homes may have to change school systems. For every student Alexander City gains, it receives an additional $5,896 based on average daily attendance in 201617. Tallapoosa County Schools stand to lose $6,041 per student it loses based on average daily attendance numbers from 2016-17, according to the state department of education. City clerk Amanda Thomas told the city council at the March 18 meeting municipal attorney Larkin Radney,
who also serves as the attorney for Alexander City Schools, said those already living in areas that get annexed could hypothetically choose between county and city schools for their children while those who move into an annexed area would attend city schools. When asked for more information, Radney deferred to Tallapoosa County Schools attorney Mark Allen Treadwell.
â€œWe have not been asked to officially look at attendance zones,â€? Treadwell said. â€œWe do not know the neighborhood. (The issue) may have to be addressed if we get a complaint.â€? Other roads coming under the responsibility of the city in the proposed annexation include parts of Dogwood and Pinecrest lanes. All of Pinecrest Trail and Sturdivant Lane would fall under city responsibility if the annexation is approved. The portion of Sturdivant Road from Highway 280 to just beyond Lake Point Drive is currently in the city limits and the city is responsible for its upkeep. The annexation would leave out seven homes on Dogwood Lane, Forest Hills Drive and Forest Hills Road, according to documentation provided by the city. Doing so would mean every home from Sturdivant Creek to where the lake is visible on Highway 280 between Riverchase Drive and Shady Point would be in the city limits. Owners of six homes currently in the city limits must use county roads to get out. At buildout of Minerâ€™s Cove, 106 homeowners in
the city limits would have to use county roads to access Highway 280 to get to work, school and stores. This does not include traffic for the buildout including equipment and trucks delivering building materials. New bridge construction and roads built in the Minerâ€™s Cove development would have to be built to current city standards. Developers of Minerâ€™s Cove had worked with the county for the last couple of years to get the development platted but could not meet the countyâ€™s requirement on a lot dimension ratio. Tallapoosa County officials require a 2-to-1 ratio to help with septic requirements due to water runoff issues and traffic safety. Alexander City requires a 100-foot lot width, Brewer said. â€œIt is a public health department issue,â€? Tallapoosa County engineer David Moore said. â€œAlso it avoids the stacking of driveways on public roads. Without it you end up with many entry points to public roads possibly creating hazards.â€?

State prisons are a shameful blot
ll Alabamians should be embarrassed by the U.S. Department of Justice report released last week about the deplorable and even inhumane conditions of our state prisons. The feds say our men’s prison system treats inmates unconstitutionally and is threatening a lawsuit within 49 days if the state doesn’t show tangible efforts to change the system. Alabama remains a deeply conservative law-and-order state and many will say those behind bars forfeited any right to decent treatment when the cell door closed behind them. Most of those serving time deserve to serve time but they don’t deserve rampant rapes, stabbings, beatings, extortion and unsanitary conditions. Those reports should concern us all and it certainly reflects on us as a state. Think for a moment if you had a friend or relative in a state prison. Would you want them stabbed to death while screaming for help that came too late and while other inmates stood watch to make sure the few guards on duty didn’t see anything? Would you want them beaten by socks filled with metal locks? Or having their bed set on fire while asleep? Or living with raw sewage? Eating food from a kitchen with rats and maggots? Prisons are for punishment and should also be a path to rehabilitation and restoring as much dignity as possible. But turning inmates into productive, law-abiding citizens won’t occur in Alabama prisons unless there are some huge changes. Gov. Kay Ivey has proposed such changes, including building three new prisons and hiring 500 more correctional officers. We hope the legislature provides the resources and we agree with U.S. Attorney Richard Moore’s conclusion. “The United States Constitution bans ‘cruel and unusual punishments’ but the conditions found in our investigation of Alabama prisons provide reasonable cause to believe there is a flagrant disregard of that injunction,” Moore said. “We are better than this. We do not need to tarry very long assessing blame but rather commit to righting this wrong and spare our state further embarrassment.”

Even Republicans like Lindsey Graham and Susan Collins came to Biden’s defense. There was even an easy solution to the problem: make a sincere apology and never do anything like that again.

The U.S. Department of Justice recently gave Alabama 49 days to create a remedial plan for its men’s prison system or face a federal lawsuit due to pervasive conditions which constitute cruel and unusual punishment, an Eighth Amendment violation. Federal Judge Myron Thompson used identical language in his 2017 ruling in which he said Alabama prisons provided horrendously inadequate care and deficient psychiatric services which jeopardized inmates.
“It’s deeply humiliating for Alabama. It’s disgusting. I mean it is,” said state Sen. Cam Ward, who heads the legislature’s prison oversight committee. Meanwhile, Gov. Kay Ivey took umbrage with the DOJ, insisting it’s an Alabama problem and requires an Alabama solution and pledging to address the crisis in fast order. She said the DOJ’s recent report on prisons identified issues the state has already identified. In 2015, SB67 was touted as the Alabama prison antidote. Wrong. The DOJ report con-
cluded drugs exacerbate and facilitate the pervasive violence that roil Alabama prisons. The Alabama Department of Corrections has consistently identified staff personnel as purveyors of drugs. Were those staffers fired and prosecuted? Yet, inexplicably, the ADOC doesn’t mandate all personnel are screened when they enter the prison. The fix won’t be fast. It will prove costly. And it requires Ivey to exert leadership that’s strong and compassionate. No more, no less. Marc D. Greenwood Camp Hill

Lenny Arnold said his life in Alex City wasn’t that much better than his wife’s. His parents divorced when he was 2 and his mother moved to Milwaukee. There were five children in his family. When he was 13, he said authorities gave him a choice of residence after he broke into several vending machines in Alex City. “If there was a Coke machine in Alex City, I would open it,” he said. “I was a troubled kid. They told me to either go live with my mother in Milwaukee or go to reformatory school.” It was an easy decision, Arnold said, so he and his two brothers caught a train out of town for Milwaukee. Arnold said fostering wayward, needy children was an easy decision for his wife because of her background as an orphan but it took some convincing for him to get on board. “When he asked me to marry him, I told him to never forget that I have a mission,” she said. “I said, ‘We are going to have foster kids.’ I had felt the
call all my life. “The joke around the house is he doesn’t even like kids but we’ve helped raise 101. He’s had some of the best times with some of the foster kids we’ve had. We had one little girl who was 18 months old, still in diapers, and she loved him.” The youngest child they have fostered was a 3-month-old baby and the oldest was a 17-year-old girl. They have been biracial, African-American, Hispanic and white. “The first was a newborn baby,” Mary Arnold said. “It was 3 months old but the size of a month old. It was malnourished, neglected.” The oldest had been sexually abused by her father, according to the Arnolds. “When they found out this was happening, the father would not accept that he did it and one day he got drunk and bragged about it,” Mary Arnold said. “He said it in front of the wrong person and they reported him and DHR (Department of Human Resources) looked into it. The girl admitted it but she didn’t want to report her dad
because that was her dad.” Only a few of the children have caused trouble in the Arnold home, the couple said. The most difficult was an 8-year-old boy they fostered for nearly four years. When he got angry he bit himself and beat himself on the head. One time he lost his temper and began verbally abusing Mary Arnold and her husband stepped in. “He told the boy, ‘I let you be in my home because she wants you here. I care about you but you will not abuse her because she lays her life down for you kids and you will not talk to her like that,’” she said. The boy is now a teenager and was adopted by a loving couple. “He is doing remarkably well,” Mary Arnold said. “It just took the right family to adopt him.” At one point the Arnolds said they had seven foster children living with them. “We had bunk beds all over the rooms,” she said. “We had fun and we would take adventures. We fed them buffet style and the teenagers among
Commission the commission at Monday’s meeting. “She actually retired Friday a week ago,” revenue commissioner Eva Middlebrooks said. “She is here the next couple of weeks to help train a new employee.” Middlebrooks described some of the work Burton did for 34 years in the mapping department and what she will do with her newly found extra time. “She was here when they inked on mylars,” Middlebrooks said. “I know she has a lot of plans to travel.” Middlebrooks asked the commission to declare the revenue commission’s pontoon boat as surplus. The boat is used for property appraisal on Lake Martin. “It is not very practical (because of its size),” Middlebrooks said. “In a couple of years we would like to get something else, something smaller and easier to use for one person.” In other action, the Tallapoosa County Commission: • Approved warrants and purchase orders. • Approved Family and Medical Leave Act requests for two employees. • Approved an indigent burial. • Went into executive session for 40 minutes to discuss pending litigation. No action was taken by the commission when it returned to regular session. • Was reminded the courthouse will be closed April 22 in observance of Confederate Memorial Day. • Was reminded the Alabama Bicentennial display will be up from April 23 to May 2 at the Dadeville Recreation Center. • Was reminded by Tallapoosa County Emergency Management Agency director Jason Moran to encourage citizens to sign up for Tallapoosa Alert, which has replaced warning sirens in the county. Moran said more than 15,000
them helped with the smaller ones.” DHR provides money for each child the Arnolds take in. At Christmas, DHR gives the foster children gifts and provides clothing as needed. Mary Arnold, who retired after 30 years as a licensed respiratory therapist and now works at a doctor’s office, instructs people on how to become foster parents. Only 16 of the children they have fostered over the years have not stayed in touch. The ones they have lost touch with were just infants when they took them in. Mary Arnold grew emotional when she recalled a boy they fostered invited them to his high school graduation and pointed them out to the couple that adopted him. “This is the family that helped me be what I am today,” he said, according to Mary Arnold. Examples such as those make the 101 children they have fostered worth it. “I think we have touched 101 lives,” she said.

All About Queen Elizabeth II
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born on April 21, 1926, in London, England. At the time of her birth, her grandfather, King George V, was the King of England, and her Uncle Edward was heir to the throne. When she was 10 years old, King George died. Her uncle decided that he did not want to be King and stepped down from, or abdicated, the throne. Elizabethâ€™s father then became the King of England, and her life changed forever. She became the future Queen! She spent her childhood learning lessons that would prepare her for her future. She was taught public speaking, laws about government, and diplomacy. When she was 13 years old, World War II started. Over the course of the war, Elizabeth PDGHKHUÂżUVWSXEOLFVSHHFKWRWKHFKLOGUHQRIWKH8QLWHG.LQJGRP%\WKHHQGRIWKHZDUVKHKDG joined the womenâ€™s branch of the Army and trained to be an automobile mechanic.

The Dadeville Police Department detained Randall Earl Mann, 54, of Jacksons Gap for arrest warrants connected to lewd acts with a child in Oklahoma. â€œWe had an officer pull him over for a traffic stop,â€? Dadeville police chief David Barbour said. â€œWe found out he had warrants for his arrest from Oklahoma.â€? The Canadian County Sheriffâ€™s Department in Oklahoma said Mann approached an undercover deputy then law enforcement issued warrants for Mann for lewd acts with a child under 16. â€œThe investigation started in April 2018,â€? a release from the Canadian County (Oklahoma) Sheriffâ€™s Department said. â€œMann approached an undercover deputy Mann portraying a 14-year-old female from Canadian County on social media. The conversation moved slowly but eventually Mann (began) talking sexually to what he believed was a 14-year-old female.â€? The release said investigators continued the conversation with Mann via social media. â€œDuring the investigation, Mann made sexual comments about performing oral sex on the child and asking about her sexual history,â€? the release said. â€œHe asked the decoy if she had started her menstrual cycle yet and was wanting to make her enjoy the sex he wanted to give her. He asked the decoy about what school she attended and said he would come get her and they would be gone.â€? Mann was arrested last month and arrived at the Canadian County Jail on March 31 where he is still in custody. A $50,000 cash bond is available to Mann. Mann has previously been charged with crimes against children. According to court records, in 2001 he was arrested for enticing a child and second-degree sex abuse. He pleaded guilty to Class A misdemeanor sexual misconduct. In 1994 he was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. That charge was dismissed with conditions. Mann also has several drug arrests and an assault arrest. He was a registered sex offender in Tallapoosa County. Canadian County Sheriff Chris West was thankful for the help of the Dadeville Police Department. â€œWe are thankful for our law enforcement partners in Alabama for helping us to make this arrest,â€? West said. â€œI wouldnâ€™t be a bit surprised if Mann was preying on local children in Alabama as well as he has a criminal history for such.â€?
Tuberville announces heâ€™s running for Senate STAFF REPORT TPI Staff
Former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville announced on Twitter on Saturday he is running as a Republican for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democratic incumbent Doug Jones. â€œAfter more than a year of listening to Alabamaâ€™s citizens, I have heard your concerns and hopes for a better tomorrow. I am humbled to announce the next step â€” I will be a @GOP candidate for US Senate,â€? Tuberville, 64, wrote on Twitter. He hashtagged #MAGA (Make America Great Again) in his announcement. U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne of Fairhope has also announced he will seek the Republican nomination in the 2020 election. Jones won election in 2017 after former Sen. Jeff Sessions was named U.S. attorney general by President Donald Trump. But Jones, who defeated Roy Moore for the seat, is widely regarded as an underdog in his reelection bid because Trump remains popular in the state and Republicans are expected to nominate a stronger candidate in this cycle. Tuberville considered running for governor in 2017 but decided against it. Tuberville was 85-40 in 11 seasons at Auburn, including six straight wins over Alabama.

AREA BLAST Rebels down Cougars to keep playoff hopes alive
By LIZI ARBOGAST Sports Editor
With their backs against the wall after a series loss to Fayetteville in Class 2A Area 7 action, the Reeltown Rebels knew it was time to put the pedal to the metal Friday night in a baseball doubleheader with Central Coosa. In the opener, Reeltown struggled to get its bats going but still managed a 5-3 victory when it pushed across two runs in the bottom of the sixth on a wild pitch and a passed ball. But Game 2 was a much different story. The Rebels’ bats exploded, and everything that could’ve gone wrong for Coosa went wrong in a 23-1 decision. “It’s just a matter of coming out ready to play,” Reeltown coach Trey Chambers said. “We started the first game flat, so we were a little down the whole time. If we want to be a good team, we have to continue to build and come out ready to play from the get-go. That was the difference.” In addition to giving up 14 hits, the Cougars also struggled on the mound with seven walks and three hit batters, and their defense did them no favors with four errors in Game 2. Coosa actually looked like it was going to make the nightcap as exciting as the opener when it scored a run in the top of the first. Jashaslin James singled to lead off the game then stole both second and third before being plated by a Ryan Payne single. But things quickly fell apart for the Cougars, as Reeltown scored at least five runs in every inning it had at bat. And what was most impressive about the Rebel offense was it came throughout the lineup. “I think they kind of realized their approaches at the plate weren’t that great (in the first game),” Chambers said. “The long swings weren’t getting us anywhere, so we needed to just
stay short to the ball and see what happened.” Jordan Whitlow had an explosive game, racking up a staggering six RBIs. He had a pair of two-run doubles and also plated two more runs on a single and a sacrifice fly. Logan Lee and Will Brooks also contributed four RBIs apiece with three and two hits, respectively. All but one Reeltown batter had at least one hit, and everyone scored at least one run. Gabe Bryant also knocked in two runs. The offense for the Rebels was also backed by a flawless defense in Game 2, and Lee had several highlight-worthy plays at second base that could’ve easily done more damage for the Cougars. “Defense is key,” Chambers said. “We’re still fighting to get in the playoffs and defense plays a big part in our game. If we want to have a shot at winning any time, we have to play good ‘D.’ Kudos to him and kudos to our coaching staff; we all work pretty hard to get these guys ready and I think that’s just a testament of it.” Reeltown will have its series with Thorsby next week to determine who gets into the postseason. Thorsby is currently 18-3 and has twice defeated Fayetteville, which beat Reeltown earlier this season.
Lake Martin Machine Gun expands to allow range memberships By CARMEN RODGERS Staff Writer
As the calendar transitions into spring and summer, Lake Martin Machine Gun on Highway 229 in Eclectic is expanding to allow people to bring their own firearms. At the 90-acre range, patrons can touch and shoot historic machine guns that would otherwise be unobtainable in a controlled environment under the direct supervision of trained professionals. Daily and yearly memberships are available and activeduty law enforcement can shoot for free. “They have enough to pay for so practicing to save our lives one day is on us,” coowner David McGirt said. The range has expanded its hours and is now open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Monday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. A range safety officer will run the range at all times while patrons enjoy the pistol lanes out to 25 yards and rifle lanes out to 50 yards. Steel targets are available on the pistol and rifle lanes. Ammunition, hearing protection, eye protection and targets are available at the range’s new pro shop. The facility has been upgraded so shooters can enjoy the comfort of air conditioning in warmer months and heat during the cooler season. Annual membership allows for unlimited visits throughout the month and the ability to visit their NFA purchases at the range while waiting for tax stamp approvals. Annual members will also have the

first shot at purchasing rental range guns as they cycle out. Members must be at least 18 and younger shooters are allowed with parental supervision. For those new to shooting, Lake Martin Machine Gun offers NRA safety and training courses taught by certified instructors onsite. “We offer all of the training and licenses so the customer only needs comfortable
clothes and closed-toe shoes,” McGirt said. “Safety glasses, hearing protection and gloves, if needed, are all supplied.” Customers interested in machine gun rentals will be matched one-on-one with a safety officer who will assist the customer in all aspects of shooting. With 25 rental machine guns available, there are three brackets of fully automatic firearms for people to use —
sub-machine guns such as a Glock 18, IMI Uzi, Thompson, Grease Gun and H&K MP5s, and machine guns such as a Colt M4 and AK-47 or belt-fed weapons such as the M1919, M60, MG42 and M2HB. Before Lake Martin Machine Gun opened, people had to travel as far away as Knob Creek, Kentucky, to handle such unique guns. The opportunity to shoot a
machine gun is unique because in May 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed the Firearm Owners Protection Act, which among other things made the sale of fully automatic firearms manufactured before that year illegal. Owning the guns is still legal but it’s exceptionally difficult and expensive. For more information, call 1-888-660-6462 or visit www. lakemartinmachinegun.com.

PUZZLES & HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might be waÉŠing inside, but others see a person willing to take a risk. Unexpected developments could slow you down, especially if your Ă„nances are involved. You must think before you take any action. Tonight: Happy to hang with a friend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might be a loose cannon on deck to many friends and associates. Your stable and steady comportment seems to have fallen to the wayside. A partner could be somewhat remote. Be more sensitive to this person. Tonight: Let it all hang out. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You remain directed, knowing where you are heading. Nevertheless, an uproar could capture your thoughts. You cannot change what is, but you can change your response to the situation. Do not allow your Ă„nances to get involved in the uproar. Tonight: Your treat. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You could be unusually emotional and goal-directed. Others see this attitude but question how long you will stay that way. Your moods might change suddenly, even if someone questions you about something else. Tonight: All grins. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Take your time coming to a conclusion. You might not be as positive as normal. There could be a tendency to distort diÉˆerent elements involved. Try not to make a judgment today. Do that later. You need to relax Ă„rst. Tonight: Get extra R and R. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Zero in on what you want. Get to the bottom of a problem, and do not let someone else distract you. Remain more surefooted in dealing with a changeable situation. News could be distracting, and not necessarily reliable. Tonight: Find your friends.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Take a stand if need be. Understand what is going on with a boss or respected elder. Listen to this personâ€™s suggestions, but do not feel as if you must follow them. Be gracious, but do what you feel is needed. Tonight: A necessary appearance. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Reach out for another person at a distance. You know a lot more than you realize. Getting advice never hurts, though. Information is forthcoming. You need to reach out for another person. You discover yet another perspective. Tonight: Break past a limitation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Dealing with a partner who could be overly serious might put an edge on your day. You might not be ready for fast changes and more unpredictability in your life. Nevertheless, you greet the situation with decorum. Tonight: Weighing the pros and cons of a situation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Defer to another person who cares about you, yet has strong opinions. Do not totally allow someone else to make your decisions, though. You might not be happy with the end results. Someone might not reveal all that is known. Tonight: Relax, and make weekend plans. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your fun-loving temperament plugs into daily life. Yes, you could feel strongly about a personal matter. You might not choose to share what is going on within. You put on a good face for the world. Try not to go to excess. Tonight: Express your caring. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Your creativity emerges as you visit with a like soul. You could be friends, work associates or loved ones. Some unexpected news comes forward. Do not allow it to interfere with your day. Go with opportunity. Tonight: As you like it.

The Dadeville Record
Oliver says House slowing Common Core repeal anything that you have to live with for an extended period of time that’s not right, so if we change this we’re going All thoughts on repealing Common to do it right.” Core in Alabama have slowed down, Oliver said he is following the lead according to state Rep. Ed Oliver of Education Policy chair Rep. Terri (R-Dadeville). Collins (R-Decatur) on the bill. The Alabama Senate recently Oliver said Redstone Arsenal, the passed a bill to repeal Common Business Council of Alabama and the Core but Oliver said the House of United States Army all oppose repealing Representatives is revising the bill. It Common Core and have approached the will be weeks before deciding on the House of Representatives about leaving changes since there wasn’t much debate it alone. Oliver said the House wants on it beforehand. Alabama students to compete nationally “I think right now it’s so new and so they need a set of testing standards there’s so much discovery going on, for that purpose. we’re all learning about something “If Alabama doesn’t have a way to that typically would belong in the state compare our kids to other kids then that Department of Education,” Oliver said. leaves us to a disadvantage,” Oliver “So we’re having to learn (it) and I said. “Also, the main reason the Army think it was a good idea to slow it down didn’t like it was because you have kids so we can all get brushed up on the moving in and moving out frequently issues that we need to understand very, and it makes it difficult for them to very well. And you don’t want to do change school systems.” By GABRIELLE JANSEN Staff Writer
Oliver said he is not involved in education policy but reached out to as many educators as he could to try his best to understand Common Core and the bill. “I spent a bunch of time last week trying to learn about Common Core and things that I didn’t know and never considered,” Oliver said. “I’m very educational but I agree with Rep. Collins that this is something we need to be very careful about how we do it, how we approach it.” Oliver said while he doesn’t like parts of Common Core, there are provisions of the bill he disagrees with “that had to do with testing and national test scores and the ability for students from Alabama to transfer to schools that are out of state or are for out-of-state kids to come to Alabama schools. “I’m like everybody else, there are some parts (of Common Core) I absolutely hate and there are some parts
I think are absolutely necessary,” Oliver said. “We’re trying to get to the bottom of what is good for most people in the state.” Oliver said he is against Common Core’s methodology of teaching math and there are some missing books on the standard literary list. “The list goes on and on but understand nothing’s perfect,” Oliver said. “We’re just trying to clean this up and make it to where it’s more suitable for Alabamians without hurting ourselves. That’s the reason we’re slowing it down is to make sure that we do no harm first.” Oliver emphasized he is one vote in the House and is not involved in the debate. “The main thing to remember is that this is very fluid, that we are going to take a week or two to study this and we’re going to follow Rep. Collins’ lead,” Oliver said.

Lake Martin Area United Way Quail Fry raises more than $13K By JIMMY WIGFIELD Managing Editor
Patrons who attended the Lake Martin Area United Way’s annual quail fry Saturday evening found Auburn’s loss to Virginia in the Final Four much harder to swallow than the delectable food offered at The Stables at Russell Crossroads. Organizers set up a big-screen TV for Tiger fans to watch the game and they leaped from their chairs in jubilation when it appeared Auburn had rallied from a 10-point deficit to win. But after Kyle Guy’s three free throws
with 0.6 seconds left gave the Cavaliers a 63-62 victory, the mood quickly became somber. Despite the widespread loss of appetite, Lake Martin Area United Way executive director Sharon Fuller said approximately $13,250 was raised through 162 tickets sold and the traditional auction of baked goods. Fuller said 176 items were prepared for sale and to be auctioned. “We didn’t raise quite as much as last year and I think the crowd was down because of the game but it was still a success,” Fuller said. Sherry Johnson’s bread pudding drew the largest bid at $260, Fuller said.
Air Force veteran’s memoir part of ‘healing process’ about the memories that I have in the military and it kind of helps me let go of that pain.” U.S. Air Force veteran Newman served in the and StillWaters resident Air Force for 25 years and Billy Newman said he worked in intelligence, hopes to have his memoir published by the end of the special ops and medicine. Newman, a 1986 year. graduate of Benjamin Newman’s current title for the memoir is “Telling Russel, decided to join the U.S. Air Force in Jordan,” which comes 1988 and went to school from talking with his in San Antonio for therapist. “It’s a healing process,” cryptographics.

first military duties was attending the groundbreaking for the Bill Nichols State Veterans Home. After graduating the cryptography school, Newman was recruited by the U.S. Navy to work in intelligence in Tokyo. After a few years in Tokyo, he was recruited into special ops with the U.S. Army. “When I went into special ops counter terrorism, I had gone through the technical side of crypto and they actually sent me to the language school,” Newman said. “I did language crypto also when I was in special ops. They sent me to school for Thai.” Newman said in special ops he can’t specify what he specifically worked on in counterterrorism, but he did a lot of top-
secret things that made a difference in the world for a couple of years. Newman said during that time he lost many friends and realized he didn’t like what he was doing. “Some things happened that I got where I didn’t like what I was doing anymore,” Newman said. “I wasn’t proud of my job, so I was able to get some friends to pull some strings and went into medicine and spent the last half of my career helping people.” Newman then switched to working as an aerospace medical practitioner in the military. “I guess it was my way for making up for so much hurting that I had done in special ops; I wanted to do good,” Newman said. “I wanted to help people save people for a change.” In the military, Newman
was stationed in Japan, Korea, Thailand, India, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Guam, Oman, Iraq, Afghanistan, Oklahoma and Florida. Newman was medically retired as a senior master sergeant. After getting out of the military, Newman joined a motorcycle gang before finding a mentor who got him into martial arts. Newman said he has won at least eight martial arts championships since. Newman said he had learned forms of martial arts when he was in the military and even taught as a combative instructor for a set of special forces groups in Florida. “Once I got out of the military it was a way to (release pain),” Newman said. “You go into a martial arts school and get in the
cage and you leave it all right there. Whatever is bothering you, you fight, you beat it out of yourself and each other and you just leave it there.” Newman is currently a member of the Disabled American Veterans Bill Nichols Chapter 13 and Lake Martin Search and Rescue. Newman said other veterans who may have been in similar situations like him and are struggling should talk about their pain and stress. “There’s help out there,” Newman said. “There are people out there, churches that will help and organizations that will help. Don’t just keep it to yourself. You need to get out there. We were brothers in combat and we should still be brothers outside of combat.”
