Ivey is first Republican woman governor; Republicans take charge in statewide races


Cliff Williams / The Outlook

Kay Ivey made history Tuesday night winning a full term of her own as governor defeating Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox. Many Republicans were elected Tuesday as results rolled in. “Together, we’ve done it,” Ivey exclaimed Tuesday night at a press conference streamed by CBS 42. “The people of Alabama have spoken today loud and clear, and we want to keep Alabama on the right track and keep Alabama working. “It is with immense gratitude that I stand before you tonight as the next governor of Alabama. I am ever so grateful for your steadfast support, your prayers and your votes. Folks, tonight, today, together, we have made history — the first Republican woman elected governor.” Ivey, who said the odds were against her, said not only did she and her supporters See IVEY • Page 12

DEAR ABBY: My stepson “Arnold� recently moved out, and I found a notebook he left behind that I thought I’d use. Inside was a journal entry he had made last year about someone he loved. The problem is, it’s directed to another man. I want to believe that’s not true, but the writing and everything else checks out. I wish I had never seen it. We’re a Christian family and have conservative views. Arnold never dated much, but we thought it was because he was so focused on his education. None of us would have ever expected this. There were no signs whatsoever. I feel such a burden right now. I know why he wouldn’t tell his parents. His dad would be devastated. I never keep anything from my husband, and I feel terrible not being able to share this. But I don’t want to reveal what I saw if my stepson isn’t ready. What should I do? Should I ask Arnold about it? How can I take this burden off


my shoulders? -- STRESSED IN THE WEST DEAR STRESSED: I am a firm believer in communication. Return the notebook to Arnold, and when you do, use it as an opportunity to open a conversation with him about it. I do not think you should unburden yourself to your husband. The person to “out� Arnold should be Arnold. DEAR ABBY: I reconnected with a guy from high school five months ago. We started hanging out and eventually decided to start dating. The first month or so was great, but right away he started becoming very possessive and jealous. It has been four months, and he is constantly accusing me of being sneaky and cheating.

Robert “Corky� Colin Graves Robert “Corky� Colin Graves, 74, of Jackson’s Gap passed away Monday, November 5 at home, peacefully and with family. Born on March 1, 1944, the second of two adored children of Robert Luther and Marion Rose (Ryan) Graves. Corky and his older sister Judith Hester (Graves) grew up in Graves Alexander City and attended Benjamin Russell High School. After high school Corky enrolled in the Alabama National Guard before joining the United States Navy. After his service to his country, Corky embarked on a very successful career in entrepreneurship. His greatest enterprise, though, was his family. He and wife Anita (Breland) Graves have a daughter, Erica (Graves)

Walsh, son-in-law Ryan Walsh and granddaughter, Breland Walsh. Corky also had a daughter Stephanie Gilbert from a previous marriage. In his spare time - he liked nothing more than travelling with wife Anita. The two experienced life to the fullest. Always up for a new adventure Corky and Anita were instant locals wherever they landed. From a fish-fry in Wisconsin to a clam-bake in Maine to a red beans and rice and dancing at Tipatina’s in New Orleans - the Corky and Anita caravan had a blast. As fun as their cross-country jaunts were the two enjoyed driving to Nashville to be with their granddaughter the most. Corky’s career took him near and far. He saw failure and success. He always remained true to himself and his family. He was proud of his roots, his community, his country, his friends and family. He was a fiber of the community - the fiber that connects generations. He always had a kind word, a soft ear and a warm smile. Corky is survived by his wife, Anita, daughter Erica (Graves) Walsh, sonin-law Ryan Walsh, granddaughter

Transmission towers and cables that supply power to transmission substations (and thousands of members) rarely fail. But when damaged, these facilities must be repaired before other parts of the system can operate.

2. Distribution Substation: A substation can serve hundreds or thousands of consumers. When a major outage occurs, line crews inspect substations to determine if problems stem from transmission lines feeding into the substation, the substation itself or if problems exist further down the line.

3. Main Distribution Lines: If the problem cannot be isolated at a distribution substation, distribution lines are checked. These lines carry power to large groups of consumers in communities or housing developments.

4. Tap Lines: If local outages persist, supply lines (also known as tap lines) are inspected. These lines deliver power to transformers, either mounted on poles or placed on pads for underground service, outside businesses, schools and homes.

If your home remains without power, the service line between a transformer and your residence may need to be repaired. Always call to report an outage to help line crews isolate local issue.

We then bring it to the church on the morning of the luncheon and warm it up on the stove and in Crock-Pots.” The ladies serve it up with cornbread, tea and homemade pound cake.

Our View

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.” — John C. Maxwell

The election is over, now let’s move forward



“He made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment – to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.” — Ephesians 1:9-10


he latest slate of public officials has now been decided, as the results are in and the winners have been chosen following yesterday’s election. A number of incumbents will return to their seats, while a few new faces may make their presence felt in the upcoming weeks. Now that we’ve made our decisions, let’s move forward and work to make Tallapoosa County, Alabama and the United States as a whole a better place. If your candidate won, go ahead and celebrate, but remember winning the election is only part of the battle. There is a long road to hoe in the world of public service, and the election is only the first step on that path. If you supported the losing candidate, it is understandable to want to be frustrated and upset, but you cannot stay there. Find a way to work with the winner and make plans for the future. Alabama head football coach Nick Saban has a rule with his players where they can only celebrate winning, even if it was the national championship game, for 24 hours before moving on, getting focused and going back to work to prepare for the future. This is an example we can all live by in our personal lives. If a football coach can lead his team to six national titles in a little over a decade using this philosophy, imagine how much better our lives can be if we follow the same guidelines. Whether the candidates you personally supported took part in a victory celebration or offered up a few remarks of concession after the polls closed, it is time to move on and work for a brighter future. If we dwell on the past and cling to the dreams of what could have been, we cannot move forward, but instead remain stuck in place. We owe it to ourselves and everyone around us to find ways to make progress in this country, and it all starts by continuing to push forward.

Daily Poll Tuesday’s question: Have you been sick yet this fall?

More than an election going on in ’Bama politics


ur gubernatorial election year politics ended yesterday. However, there have been other political maneuverings and developments going on behind the scenes, which may ultimately have more long-term ramifications in the Heart of Dixie’s political future. The selection of a new Business Council of Alabama leader is imminent and will probably occur in the next few days. In addition, the jockeying and wrangling for the U.S. Senate Seat in 2020 has begun. Alabama Power President, Mark Crosswhite, prudently cleaned house at the BCA earlier this year. He organized a team of cardinals to interview and select a new leader. Much like the vetting process for a new Pope, the Cardinals meet in total secrecy and send out smoke signals from the Vatican that they have not yet reached a decision. However, there are smoke signals that a new leader of the BCA is about to be named. The process has been very private with no leaks. This entire year long process of removing Billy Canary, who had reigned for 12 years, and selecting a new CEO has been a battle of business titans in the state. It has been a battle waged behind an iron curtain. The role of Crosswhite in this change has been clear. Crosswhite has emerged as the clear leader of the Alabama Business Community. The original BCA was forged under the leadership of former Alabama Power President, Elmer Harris several decades ago. It had become a toothless tiger in recent years through poor leadership. Crosswhite has picked the organization out of the junk pile and given it new life. Chances for a new beginning

STEVE FLOWERS Columnist happen very few times. Like in politics, after the election, you must govern. My belief is that with a new leader and a fresh start the Business Council of Alabama will emerge bigger and better than ever. You can rest assured that the business community of Alabama, and indeed the nation, will be looking forward to defeating Doug Jones in 2020. It is a glaring anomaly that one of the most conservative Republican states in America would have an ultra-liberal, left-winger in one of our senate seats. In last year’s special election against Roy Moore, Jones received $22 million from the most liberal zip codes and enclaves in America, especially from the left coast of California and San Francisco. It was the only show bill in town, and Moore energized liberal money from throughout the country. Thus, the two truisms, “more people vote against someone than for someone,” and “money is the mother’s milk of politics” combined to create Alabama’s accidental anomaly, Senator Doug Jones. Our anomaly senator has done nothing to remedy the uncertainty about who he is since taking office. He has done no campaigning or visiting around the state. He has shown a disregard and disinterest in basic political practices, like getting out among the rank and file Alabamians. Jones seems to just go to Washington to vote, then back to Mountain Brook. The book on Jones is that he will not be elected to a full term in 2020. It is a presidential election year

and Alabama will vote for the Republican nominee, probably Donald Trump, overwhelmingly. This is a Republican senate seat and it will be won by a Republican. Jones seems to know this, therefore, he appears content to represent California during his tenure. As soon as Jones was sworn in, the race to be the Republican nominee began. The obvious candidates are one, if not all, of our six Republican members of Congress. Speculation abounded that the three best potential congressional horses would be Robert Aderholt, Bradley Byrne and Mo Brooks. The horse that has emerged as the favorite is Byrne. He has started early and has staked out the inside track. He has crisscrossed the state building an organization and is collecting and tying up the Washington establishment money. Aderholt will probably defer to staying in the House. He has over 20 years of seniority and is in line to chair the Appropriations Committee. Congressman Mike Rogers is moving up in seniority and is on Armed Services. Brooks is expected to defer to Byrne in 2020 and look to run for Senator Shelby’s seat in 2022 if he retires. This stealth campaign for the 2020 Senate race has been going on this entire gubernatorial year. Byrne is indeed laying his stakes. There is a maxim in life and politics, “the early bird gets the worm.” See you next week. Steve Flowers is Alabama’s leading political columnist. His weekly column appears in over 60 Alabama newspapers. He served 16 years in the state legislature. Steve may be reached at www.steveflowers. us.

Shores to entertain audience at Equality Performing Arts Center


other Nature has confused my peach azaleas. After blooming in early spring, they again have pretty blooms to brighten up the autumnal tones at my side porch. Price Smith, son of Jeff and Elisha Smith turns 10 years old today. Equality’s sweetheart Mrs. Robbie Martin will be 89 years young Nov. 10. Then Ann Ham Granger and Chris Burns both celebrate Nov. 13. Glad tidings and Happy Birthday to everyone with that celebration this week. Sending out special wellwishes and a big hug to Mr. Harold Turner in Kellyton. Hospice was called in last week and Mr. Turner is at home now after about a two week stretch at UAB in intensive care. His son James is such a kind-caringheart and makes sure his father has what he needs, often going home to visit on


’m trying to get my article written before I head to the VA in Tuskegee for my weekly anger and stress management class. PTSD can be hard to deal with at times, but I am fine – blessed beyond measure, really. I have another appointment tomorrow in Montgomery. I’ve been with this group of guys for several weeks now. My class has been comprised of males, thus far, but it could change at any time. Females suffer from PTSD as well. It doesn’t discriminate. The gentlemen in

ROSIE MORGAN Columnist his lunch break. Please keep Mr. Harold and James in your prayers. Equality’s newly re-opened EPAC is working to bring you some great entertainment with the second show on Friday, Nov. 16 when doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. with keyboard virtuoso Peggy Shores. She is back by popular demand to inspire us with some of her versatile repertoire and the style this time is “St. Louis Blues” and “Pack Rat Blues”. Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy some live music, done with style by Shores

at EPAC on Highway 9 in downtown Equality. If you need information, the contact person is Wayne Glenn. He can be reach at 334-320-6326. Roy and Nancy Granger hosted their annual Syrup Sopping Day last Saturday at their home just below the Elmore County line. Breakfast was served after 8 a.m., then live music followed, with the mule turning to make the syrup. Jugs of this homemade syrup could also be purchased. They usually have a big crowd that enjoys music and fellowship with neighbors. As we look toward the Christmas holidays deciding on gifts we should purchase, the Coosa County Department of Human Resources asks that you think of those less fortunate than some others. You may want to give a tax-deductible donation or purchase your

own gifts to give. You might even sponsor a family for the seasonal giving time of Christmas. For more information, you can call the DHR in Rockford at 256377-2022. The Equality Post Office had a meeting several years ago at the Masonic Lodge to decide on the hours for keeping the Equality Post Office open for the area. I really miss the days when we had sweet and knowledgeable Mrs. Sarah Hardy Griggs as Postmaster. Then the post office was open every day and a halfday on Saturdays. Since the meeting, our post office has been open Monday - Friday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. -10 a.m. I have just learned that this will be changing, effective Nov. 13, the Equality Post Office hours will shrink even more to Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - noon and Saturday 8

a.m. - 9:30 a.m. In order to keep our postal service here in Equality, we must use the services. We do have a large extended service area for this Post Office both rurally and around the lake, plus many rent boxes. I think it just a little strange that the hours for mailing will decrease as we move into the busy mailing season. Our pet ownership for “Summerdown Manor” just increased last week when my friend Rose Clement gave me a pair of parakeets, with cage and everything I needed. The female is yellow and I call her “Tweetie.” The male is a pretty pale-blue mixture and his name is “Pi.” We had a “Budgie,” they are called Budgerigars in England, while I was growing up as did my aunts and my grandparents. Most of them were called Joey. I love to hear the birds singing and

chatting to each other right in the house. Now we have seven dogs, one outside cat and two pretty budgie birds, a total of ten animals. I thought that the northern ‘Polenta’ was the same as our grits, but I learned today that instead of being a corn product, it is semolina. When I was young, we had a sweetened semolina pudding as a dessert. I loved it with a little cream on top. I do hope that everyone gave the thought necessary to make a good decision for voting yesterday. Congratulations to all winners. Until next week, keep smiling.

I might be a veteran but we’re not special JODY FULLER Columnist

my class are a cast of characters. Let me tell you. A couple of them are Vietnam Veterans. I sometimes feel guilty being in the same class as them. They really had it rough. They had nothing. For the most part, we had three hot meals a day, telephones and Facebook. Still, PTSD is PTSD. I like these guys.

We all have a story, but we’re not special. We’re just guys who volunteered to serve. Some were “voluntold,” but ultimately it was still their choice. There was always prison or Canada. While writing that first paragraph, I received a gig lead for next month. The lead was described as a “holiday party for a military unit,” so I quickly pounced on that. I love performing for any group that will have me, but, man, there’s just nothing like performing for the men and women in uniform or those who once proudly wore that

same uniform. I asked a few questions and received the following message from the squadron XO. That’s the executive officer for you tender feet out there. And, for what it’s worth, the XO is a she. “We are a forward support company for a cavalry squadron. We have had a rough go of it recently. Our higher headquarters in Panama City was destroyed during Hurricane Michael, a lot of our unit’s soldiers lost their homes and still had to perform hurricane relief functions as we were

the first squadron stood up for storm response, and the guys and gals are exhausted. Our holiday party this year is not exactly as great as years past due to recent events, so I was trying to see if we could still do something fun. I’m the unit XO and it would be great to have someone perform that understands what we do and the National Guard lifestyle.” I served eight years in the Alabama National Guard, which included my last two deployments to Iraq. I think I understand the National Guard

lifestyle and I think I have the gig locked down. She just has to get it approved by her commander. I promise to bring some fun to the guys and gals, because maybe they are special, but of course, they would say otherwise. Last night, I received a text from one of my buddies from my second deployment. Over the weekend, one of our brothers from that same deployment was tragically killed in a house fire. I don’t know the details and it doesn’t really matter. He’d apparently struggled some over the years, but

he was a good man and an exceptional medic. Dare I say, he was special. Rest easy, Joe. You will be missed. Last year, when we spent a month at UAB with our precious preemie, we spent the final two weeks at the Ronald McDonald House. We befriended a young AfricanAmerican mother on our ward. That night, I met her dad at the RMH. He apparently was a very quiet man, according to both her and her mom. He kept to himself. Really didn’t talk to people. We met in the kitchen that same night. It turned out that he was a retired Army sergeant. Well, that’s all we needed to break the ice. The ladies went to bed while Sarge and I talked until two in the morning. We had so much in common. Veterans don’t claim to be special. We’re not. I’m sure as heck not. I have more flaws than you’ll ever know. We do, however, share a special bond that is unlike any other team, and I am honored and indeed feel special being associated with such an incredible group of men and women and their families. Now the families, that’s a different story. They are special. It takes a lot to be a military family, but we’ll save that for another day. Jody Fuller is from Opelika, Ala.

The Wetumpka Herald

PUZZLES & HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19) Deal with others directly. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to sell yourself short. Listen to what is being shared by someone who seems very sure of the correctness of his or her perceptions. Understand that this person might want to share his or her deeper thoughts with you. Tonight: Be a duo. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) A friendship inspires you to take action or to push yourself harder. A new beginning becomes possible with a new friendship. You might be unsure about which direction you should head in. Know where you want to simplify your life. Tonight: Say â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? to an exciting oÉ&#x2C6;er. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Pace yourself. You might believe your day to be normal, only to Ă&#x201E;nd that the unexpected occurs. Demonstrate your ability to adjust and sort through what is relevant to you. You might decide to handle things diÉ&#x2C6;erently as a result of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events. Tonight: Put your feet up. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You have a tendency to go overboard, and you have diÉ&#x2030;culty reining yourself in. Look at a long-desired goal with depth and caring. You can see a loved one making an adjustment. Know that this process is not easy for this person. Tonight: Act as if there is no tomorrow. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Stay anchored, and remain focused on what you want and on where you are heading. You could be distracted by another situation involving property and/or a domestic matter. You cannot change others, but your attitude might transform as a result of trying. Tonight: Happiest at home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your instincts will guide you through a diÉ&#x2030;cult talk, but only if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too tied up in who is right and who is wrong. A close loved one could prove to be an amazing inspiration. Reach out to this person more often. Tonight: Meet friends for some drinks and munchies.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might need a break from the extremely hectic pace you have been maintaining. Be aware that making a money decision right now would be ill-advised. Make sure that you and a friend see eye to eye on how to split a bill for a meal. Tonight: Partake in the good times. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The New Moon in your sign announces that signiĂ&#x201E;cant changes are about to head your way, if you so desire. You have to want these changes in order to make them a reality. A family member might weigh you down with his or her heavy ideas and thoughts. Tonight: Time for fun! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You put on your best face, even if you do not feel on top of your game. You know the power of positive thinking. On the other hand, not processing the negative thoughts that surround you might be a mistake. Stay as clear-headed as possible. Tonight: Do something just for you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Zero in on what is good for you. A get-together could be part of the scenario. You might need a friend to help you clear the air. Let this person play devilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advocate. A friend or loved one could jolt you with a sudden twist or turn. Tonight: Visit with an older relative. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might not be sharing your desire to be more of a leader or an inĂ&#x2026;uencer around the workplace. Your talents in that area could emerge from out of the blue, or so others think. Co-workers will help pave the way if you let them know your desires. Tonight: Fun and games. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Look beyond the obvious when trying to make sense of a situation. Consider what has not been said. Think about how others feel. You might be able to understand why you are doing all of this processing, but know that it will pay oÉ&#x2C6; in the end. Tonight: Be near good music.

Victory Christian celebrates winning the six-man state championship Friday night. The Eagles were undefeated this year and did not get scored on all season.

Jim Hardy leads Victory Christian to fourth state title in 6 years By LIZI ARBOGAST Sports Editor

Submitted / The Outlook

Carter Piatt, top, celebrates with coach Jim Hardy after Victory Christian won the six-man state championship on Friday night.

After more than two decades of never having a winning season, Victory Christian in Millbrook has been ushered into the bigtime when it comes to six-man football in Alabama. Jim Hardy, a resident of Coosa County, took over the program in 2012, and since then, the Eagles have appeared in six straight state championships. Last week, they capped off their undefeated season with their fourth state title in six years, defeating Chilton Christian, 47-0. “I enjoy having a front row seat to watching the guys play,” Hardy said. “A lot of people want to give coaches most of the credit, but it’s the kids who are the ones that play the game. I always tell them once they get on the field, it’s their job, so I really am just proud of my boys.” A member of the Christian

AU comeback sparks inspiration


n a beautiful, sunny fall afternoon day, the Tigers and Aggies got together to play. Both teams had struggled to a 5-3 mark; neither bite had lived up to the sound of its bark. This series has been unpredictable, wacky and odd; the home team has been winless protecting its sod. The eagle has now landed and the flyover is done; I bet we come out on fire and have a little fun. With two weeks to prepare Malzahn has been great; Auburn going three plays and out I did not anticipate. No problem, Steele’s defense will pick up the slack; that 13-play drive certainly showed a few cracks. Things could be going better, what we need is a fumble; Kellen Mond to the rescue with an optional bumble. Trickaration is afoot, Davis throws to Cannella;

ANDY GRAHAM Columnist “what a great play call” said the Yella Fella. The statistics aren’t pretty, but it could be worse; the Tigers are in need of a second-half burst. Got to shut them down to start quarter number three; or maybe we’ll just let them drive as they please. This cannot be the same defense, it must be a lie; how can it be pass interference if you never touch the guy? Overcoming a 10-point deficit is not in the cards; for goodness sake, we’ve run the ball for only 19 yards! When the Aggies make this field goal I suggest we go home; oh sure, now you miss it just to prolong my bemoan. Don’t get too excited, the AU offense is inept;

right on cue it goes backwards as the crowd undoubtedly wept. It’s a formality now, the Aggies will just run the ball; Mond to the rescue again with a somewhat curious call. To get my hopes up for a comeback would be only a lark; do my eyes deceive me or was that actually a spark? What’s this? What’s happening? I don’t understand; Jarrett Stidham threw a touchdown and struck up the band. Perhaps once was a fluke, twice would be a dream; an incredible catch by Williams brought the crowd apart at the seam. This two-minute offense can do no wrong; too bad we haven’t used it all day long. It’s been a tough year for Malzahn and his boys; unlike some, I’m glad they won and experienced some joy. Andy Graham is a regular columnist for The Outlook.

Football Association, Victory Christian finished the year 10-0 and, even more impressively, was not scored on all season long. Because Hardy has been the coach for six years now, he said the strong relationship with some of his players has contributed to the Eagles’ unmatched success. “It’s a combination of the scheme we have as well as these seniors that will graduate in May, there’s five of them and they’ve been with me since they were seventh-graders,” Hardy said. “They know what I’m looking for. They’re like miniature coaches on the field, so it’s just the perfect storm. The league average was midto high-30s as far as what people scored, so it’s crazy to even think about.” Two of those seniors Hardy talked about are William Duhon and Will Fondren. Duhon was the Eagles’ running back and cornerback, while Fondren was the quarterback and played at linebacker.

When the league gave out all-star awards after Friday’s championship game, Fondren was named the offensive MVP and Duhon earned the league’s defensive MVP. The Eagles also had a special reason for playing, as they dedicated their season to Carter Piatt, a second-grader at Victory Christian who was born with multiple birth defects and has undergone seven surgeries in as many years. Hardy said he brought Piatt out to practice, hoping to give him something to get excited about, and the team naturally gravitated toward him. “The more he was out there, the more the boys got attached to him,” Hardy said. “It really came from the boys; they would say, ‘We need to do this for Carter,’ or ‘We need to score for Carter.’ It was built on every day, and he really grew on the boys.” Piatt was on the sidelines for Victory Christian’s big win Friday night.

3 BRHS runners qualify for state championship meet STAFF REPORT TPI Staff

Benjamin Russell’s Lance Cunigan and Ashley Walker are looking to finish out their high school cross country careers on a high note, as they both qualified for the state championships. Cunigan took seventh overall at the Class 6A Section 3 meet last week, clocking in at 17:05.77. Cunigan will be joined by teammate Layton Bradford, who squeezed into the final wild card spot. Bradford placed 21st overall with a time of 18:29.59. On the girls side, Walker earned the fifth wild card spot, taking 31st overall at sectionals. She had a time of 24:18.49.

The Outlook

New Site fund took in $429,476 in revenue in the year beginning Oct. 1, 2017 and ending Sept. 30, 2018, while only seeing expenditures of $366,530 during this same time period, leaving the general fund running in the black by nearly $63,000. The town’s water fund also saw extraordinary numbers, taking in $477,339 and paying out just under $420,000, leaving the water fund with a budget surplus of approximately $57,000. Along with reviewing the end-of-year numbers, Blasingame mentioned there are a handful of accounts the city has that are not drawing any interest. He mentioned wanting to find ways to invest these funds, totaling more than $850,000, to help the town get some return on the money. “If we can do it, I think it can be a good thing,” councilman Billy Daniel said. Councilman Toby Hanson added, “Can we do this?” After receiving an affirmative from Blasingame, Hanson said he would like to see it in writing, to make sure the town could go forward with this. Blasingame also reviewed the ongoing project to upgrade the town’s water system. After a meeting last week to go over where things currently stand, including all of the relevant numbers, work is moving

forward to secure a loan to help with the overage costs on the project. He added there will be a pre-construction meeting taking place soon, with the actual work to begin shortly thereafter. The council also took a few minutes to talk about the project to bring the old New Site Gymnasium up to code for use as a practice facility for Horseshoe Bend athletics. Councilman Mickey Carter said he had been talking with representatives from Weatherford & Day Engineering out of Montgomery, who would be able to conduct a structural study on the building to see if it was sound enough for the project to move forward. The council approved allowing the study to take place at a cost of no more than $900. Blasingame also said the energy division of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Development is offering grant money to towns to help upgrade lights in city buildings, making them more energy efficient. He said the town is working on a grant application for this. The New Site Town Council also went over the following items: • Minutes from the Oct. 15 meeting were approved. • It was announced things are continuing on setting up an auto-draft payment system for town

residents to take care of their water bills, while the council also took a moment to recognize town clerk Shelia Fuller for putting together a town newsletter to help keep citizens informed. “I’ve heard a lot of positive comments about this. People are telling me it’s very informative,” Blasingame said. • Blasingame said he has signed a one-year contract with county officials for housing prisoners at the county jail. • The council was informed work is being done on a grant application to obtain funds for paving the walking track behind town hall. The deadline for this grant is in 2019, with the funds being paid out in 2020. • Blasingame said Henry Dunlap from Hare & Dunlap CPA has begun working on auditing the town for fiscal year 2018. “We want to make sure we are on date with our audits,” Blasingame said. • Though the town is still waiting on federal approval for a grant on the proposed clinic, Blasingame said the town is working to obtain grant funding through the U.S. Department of Agriculture for further help on the project. • Senior Activity Center director Jan Kennedy said things are going well at the senior center, including a successful outing to Cheaha State Park recently. She said

Blasingame added the town did not receive grant funding through the commission for the senior center the town had applied for, but this was primarily due to the town’s senior program not having been in existence for one full year yet. • Carter said the fence at one of the town’s little league ball fields had been looked at, and it was suggested adding a second horizontal bar to the fence to keep it from rolling up, which would cost the city $1,360 to have installed.

Blasingame said if any interested citizens want to take the project on, they are welcome to.


Walton also said she has been asked about getting a large ice machine installed near the volunteer fire department. Blasingame said the council could not do anything on this, as the town cannot operate a business of the sort. • Walton also brought up there was some confusion and some concerns about the insurance program for town employees through the Local Government Health Insurance Program, even recommending the town withdraw and look into other options.

Dear DOG BREEDERS, This Christmas I wish for you to go spend one day in a high kill shelter. I wish that you love on all the dogs who do not have homes this Christmas. I wish that you watch as they walk us back to the back room that we will never come out of. I wish that you look into our eyes and tell us that you think our death is worth the profit you make from selling us. But what I wish for most of all is for you to STOP breeding. Please consider adoption when looking for a pet.

Tallapoosa County and learn more about the position while working with current employees. “I just want to work with Ms. Caldwell to make sure of a smooth transition without hiccups,” East said Tuesday night. “There are good people in the office already and I look forward to working with them.” East garnered 10,723 votes to Reynolds’ 4,795 votes. Reynolds plans to stay in politics despite the defeat. “I am proud of what we’ve done,” Reynolds said. “I am proud of the support that I have had. My family has supported me, and I will still remain in politics and take care of Tallapoosa County as long as I live.” Republican John McKelvey was re-elected to another as Tallapoosa County District 3 commissioner defeating Independent Frank Tapley 2,113 to 970. McKelvey was happy voters saw his ideas to improve the district were working. “A big thank you to the people of District 3,” McKelvey said. “It has been a good night. I am tickled. It speaks volumes to putting a plan together that may not always be politically correct at times and sticking to it for the improvement of the entire district.” Republican Ed Oliver was elected to replace Republican Mark Tuggle as State Representative District 81. Oliver is happy to be following in the footsteps of his family. “It’s great,” Oliver said after results of the election were known. “We were very committed to this. I have always lived here; my family has always been in politics, and this is just something that’s expected of us to do. You do it because you can and you think you’re the person to do the job.” Oliver defeated Democrat Jeremy Jeffcoat 72.70 percent to 27.25 percent in Tallapoosa County. At press time, Oliver led Jeffcoat 75.03 percent to 24.94 percent in the district that includes Tallapoosa County and parts of Coosa and Chilton counties.

Jeffcoat was proud his campaign got some of the issues of the district muchneeded attention. “The numbers are what the numbers are,” Jeffcoat said. “Sometimes you can’t fight the numbers and that’s OK, but we did what we wanted to do from the get go which was to talk about the issues affecting here and possible ways to move forward. We were able to do pretty much everything we wanted to do in this campaign, obviously except get enough votes to win it. Other than that, we have no regrets. We felt like we ran a good, solid, clean campaign and talked about issues that mattered.” Oliver has already made plans for his service in Montgomery. “I just spoke with speaker Mac McCutcheon a few minutes ago, and it’s looking like we have a super majority of republicans in the house,” Oliver said. “The speaker sets the agenda and that’s pretty much how it works. As far as local legislation, I will do my absolute best to find two or three things my first year that I can introduce locally that will improve the quality of life for the people here, and that’s sort of the standard approach for a freshman who’s in the house.” Incumbent Republican Tom Whatley defeated Democrat Nancy Carlton Bendinger. In the senate district Whatley garnered 65.17 percent of the vote to 34.78 percent. In Tallapoosa County Whatley got 73.74 percent of the vote to Bendinger’s 26.23 perecent.

We need to take a look at the city of Tuscaloosa and see what we can do to help address those challenges. “If (there’s) anything I want to convey tonight it’s that we’ve gotta come and support Gov. Ivey. The challenges that I talked about are real and she needs all of our support. You can’t talk about bringing unity and then go back to divisiveness, so I want to do everything I can to support the governor and hope we can do our part to make her successful. “If Gov. Ivey is successful, then the state of Alabama will be successful.” Mike Rogers cruised to re-election for the Alabama Third District of the U.S. House of Representatives over Mallory Hagan.
