Spilled Wood


Tuesday afternoon, just after 2 p.m., a tractor-trailer loaded with lumber left the Universal Forest Products plant at Delmar heading south on Highway 13. Rounding a curve, still north of Natural Bridge, the load shifted and the truck rolled over on it's side, dumping the wood in the highway and ditch. The highway was shut down for many hours as workers picked up the lumber from the side of the roadway. The driver was not injured and there were no other vehicles involved. 

A post note, a tractor-trailer was detoured by Lynn fireman at Natural Bridge as the driver elected to try making it over County Road 6. When the driver arrived on the scene of the wood spill, she asked if she could come through. It was then a discovery was made which stopped the truck from traveling any further than the location of the spilled wood. Apparently, when the truck crossed over the railroad on the county road, the crossing ripped a hole in a fuel tank and was leaking bad enough the driver was told not to continue. The driver stated she was running out of crew duty time and was in a hurry. It was one time, being in a hurry did not pay. 

Bath After Swimming in Natural Waters


You still have time for some summer fun, but reports from WIAT 42 in Birmingham and the Cullman Times indicate there may be a problem if you want to go swimming in Smith Lake or any other body of natural water. Experts are advising to bath after swimming in Smith Lake otherwise you could develop skin infections. Over this past weekend, a 4 year-old boy broke out in sores after swimming in Smith Lake, which was diagnosed as a staph infection. Other people have reported skin infections, ranging from rashes to impetigo and staph. 

The Alabama Department of Public Health stated they were not aware of any alerts or swimming restrictions for any lakes in Alabama. 

It may be the heat, but with any body of natural water, there is always going to be some form of bacteria. Children are going to have scrapes and bug bites. Parents are cautioned to rinse their children well after they get out of the water to reduce the bacteria on the skin to prevent infections like impetigo. Anyone with a skin infection should avoid swimming in natural bodies of water to prevent further exposure to bacteria, according to Dr. Karen Landers, a pediatrician who works for the Department of Health.

Tag and Drivers License Expired?


A great way to get stopped by law enforcement officers is to have an out-of-date tage.  When does your car tag expire?  It expires the last day of the month of issue.

If your last name begins with the letter P or L, you have through Friday, July 31st to renew your tag.  For August, if your last name begins with J, K or R, you will need to renew.  This is a state wide system of determining who renews when, so it is applicable in all counties. 

 Marion County Judge of Probate, Rocky E. Ridings, as well as the Winston and Franklin County Probate Judges remind you about renewing your tag, and take a look at the expiration date on your driver's license.  Get your tag and driver's license renewed on time, and avoid a possible fine.
