Area Hospital Report from Congressman Aderholt

By |

I’m happy to announce that Northwest Medical Center in Winfield has been sold to new owners, avoiding a possible closure. My staff and I worked with the Trump Administration and the USDA to find a solution to keep the hospital open. We hope to soon have good news about the Russellville Hospital as well. Since Obamacare was passed in 2010, 83 rural hospitals have closed. I am doing everything I can to keep this from happening in the 4th Congressional District.

Fallen Officer’s Memorial

By |

On Saturday, May 12, 2018, at 7 pm The Winston County Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #51 hosted its second annual Fallen Officer’s Memorial on the front steps of the Court House. This was to kick off National Police Officers Week.

Master of ceremonies was the Honorable Judge Bobby Aderholt; also speaking was newly appointed District Judge Daryl Burt and State representative Tim Wadsworth along FOP President Brad Curtis and Sheriff Tommy Moore. Police Officers from every department in Winston County were in attendance. Reading the names of the fallen officers were representatives from their department’s giving his length of service and the date that he was killed in the line of duty.

Also, the Alabama State Game and Fish Department’s Honor Guard did a 21 gun salute and a bugler from Alabama State Trooper’s Office played Taps.

The FOP Lodge #51would like to thank everyone for coming out on a beautiful Saturday evening to help celebrate National Police Officers week and remember our fallen Officers who had given the ultimate sacrifice for the citizen of this County.

We would also like to thank the Haleyville Fire Department and Terry Pruitt for their ladder truck and crane that held the large American Flag over the crowd. We would also like to thank the Double Springs Fire and Police Departments for their help with traffic and the closing of Blake drive for the ceremony.

Fire at Great Southern Wood Treatment Plant

By |

The Haleyville Fire Department responded quickly early Saturday morning, May 12, to a lumber fire inside a kiln at Great Southern Enterprises, located just off Highway 195, approximately 1/2 mile east of Lakeland Hospital. The kiln is a large metal building filled with lumber which utilizes an external gas furnace to heat the inside of the building to 220 degrees. Fans in the ceiling circulate the hot air. Basically, it’s a giant convection oven which over a period of days, removes moisture from the wood and opens the “pores” of the wood, a process to prepare the wood for later cutting and treatment with chemicals under pressure in order to preserve the wood. The lumber inside the building was removed with forklifts and sprayed down by firemen in order to get to the fire at the back side of the building and behind a huge stack of lumber. The Pebble Fire Department assisted HFD with a tanker.  The cause of the fire nor the exact extent of damages are known at this time. See more photos below. (more…)
