Refuge for mama Pit Bull and six pups

In an eleventh hour rescue of a mama Pit Bull mix and her six offspring, destined for euthanization in Baldwin County (Alabama) Animal Control, (BCAC), the heart of their rescuer did not deceive. On January 20th, the Pit Bull family of seven was left inside the mobile home of Alex Baker and Diana Caudill when the couple was arrested by Baldwin County sheriff’s deputies. The charges were unrelated to animal issues. However, accounts of how the dogs got out of the residence are sketchy and varied.

Plan considered to pay for turn lane in Magnolia Springs

The Town of Magnolia Springs finance committee suggested a plan for the town to fund a portion of the turn lane put in place to accommodate Family Dollar.

Mayor Charles Houser said the town will fund up to $90,000 of the project, but the exact cost of the total project was not yet known. The finance committee recommended for the town to take the seven-month CD it currently has and convert it to 24 month CD, which would raise the income. The new CD would then be used as collateral on a five-month note.
