On Tuesday, September 20, following a tip to the Winston County Sheriff’s Office of drug activity at a Haleyville residence law enforcement officers of the Sheriff’s Office and Haleyville Police went to the residence where a consent to search was granted. The officers found on the property and inside the residence at 669 8th Street, Haleyville, numerous spent Methamphetamine (Meth) labs, components and drug paraphernalia. Following the discovery of meth labs, Eugene Ramey, 63, was arrested at the scene and charged with unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance 1st degree and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was booked into the Winston County Jail. Ramey has a history of prior charges of manufacturing meth.

Winston County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Josh Silas has filed paperwork to have the residence condemned, pending court proceedings.

More Scams

By |

If it looks or sounds too good to be true, it is! With that caveat, more people in the Haleyville area are receiving scam letters and phone calls. Before you give anyone your personal information or send anyone money, stop and think about exactly what you have supposedly won or what the offer really is.

Just hang up on the callers and throw away the scam letters. Once you show any interest, the con artists will hound you till you give them what you want. It may be your personal information initially, but ultimately it is just a way to get your money.

Below is a sample of a letter and a check recently received by a local resident. Don’t be a sucker and fall for the scam artists. If it looks too good to be true, it is just another way to get your money.

Business Developement

By |


Members of the Haleyville area Chamber of Commerce along with local government officials cut the ribbon Tuesday, September 20 on a new source of information to help develop local businesses. The system is called AERN, or the Alabama Entrepreneurial Research Network. Below is information of what is provided by AERN.

The Alabama Entrepreneurial Research Network (AERN) is a program to enhance business development

throughout rural Alabama. AERN is directed through The University of Alabama’s Culverhouse College of Commerce

in partnership with agencies in rural counties. The program has three components:

Toolkit of Resources. One is to provide computers and peripheral equipment, business software, and other

business research resources to chambers of commerce, industrial development agencies, or other nonprofit organizations whose mission includes business development in very rural, low-income portions of Alabama.

Each AERN Center has these resources for use by local entrepreneurs:

• A computer, printer, and specialized business planning software

• A set of specialized business reference books

• Someone who will help you

Partner organizations make the resources available to the public to encourage potential entrepreneurs to start a

business, to expand an existing business, or for other economic development work in the target areas.

Training. The second component is a strong training emphasis. The staffs of the partner agencies receive

training in how to use the materials and how to help their local constituencies. And, periodically the public is

offered seminars and workshops.

• Learn the steps to take when starting your own business

• Find industry and economic proles of your county

• Use the Internet effectively in conducting and researching business

Website. The third component is the AERN website. Many online resources are easily accessible there, and the

site is designed for ease of use by the lay public.

From the website you can:

• Submit questions to the librarians at the Angelo Bruno Business Library at The University of Alabama

• Locate pointers to useful business information on the Internet

• Learn more about who we are, what services we offer, and how we can help you. Contact the Haleyville Chamber of Commerce at 205-486-4611 or go to
