Alabama Department of Industrial Relations
News Release
For Immediate Release: May 9, 2011

UPDATED: Additional County Added to Disaster Declaration

Unemployment Assistance Now Available to Workers in 1 Additional County; 42 Counties Total

MONTGOMERY – Alabama Department of Industrial Relations Director Tom Surtees announced today 1 additional county has been added to the federal disaster declaration that provides for assistance for workers who became unemployed as a direct result of recent severe storms, tornados, straight-line winds, and flooding in Monroe County may qualify for unemployment assistance.

Counties previously designated are Autauga, Bibb, Blount, Calhoun, Chambers ,Cherokee, Chilton, Choctaw, Clarke, Colbert, Coosa, Cullman, DeKalb, Elmore, Etowah, Fayette, Franklin, Greene, Hale, Jackson, Jefferson, Lamar, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Limestone, Madison, Marengo, Marion, Marshall, Morgan, Perry, Pickens, Shelby , St. Clair, Sumter, Talladega, Tallapoosa, Tuscaloosa, Walker, Washington, and Winston.
People who live in or worked in these counties and become unemployed due to the severe storms, flooding, tornadoes, and straight-line winds during the period of April 15, 2011, and continuing may be eligible for the assistance under the Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) program, which was triggered when President Obama designated the area as a disaster area on April 28, 2011.

“In most cases, people affected by these storms will be able to receive regular unemployment compensation,” said Surtees. “However, there are circumstances where regular unemployment compensation is not applicable, and that’s where Disaster Unemployment Assistance comes in. If you believe you are entitled to these benefits, I urge you to file a claim to see if you are eligible.”

People who may be eligible for Disaster Unemployment Assistance include the following: individuals who no longer have a job, are unable to reach the place of employment, or were scheduled to start work in the major disaster area and the job no longer exists; those who became the breadwinner or major support of the family because the head of household died, or those who cannot work because of an injury incurred during the major disaster. All of the previously described circumstances must be as a direct result of the storms. Self-employed individuals must provide a copy of their 2010 income tax records.

Claims can be filed through DIR’s website at http://www.dir.alabama.gov or by calling 1-866-234-5382. The deadline to file a DUA claim is June 7, 2011, for Monroe County.

Claims can be filed through DIR’s website at http://www.dir.alabama.gov or by calling 1-866-234-5382. The deadline to file a DUA claim is June 3, 2011, for Chambers, Clarke, and Perry counties.

Claims can be filed through DIR’s website at http://www.dir.alabama.gov or by calling 1-866-234-5382. The deadline to file a DUA claim is June 2, 2011, for Lamar, and Lauderdale counties.

05/06/2011 Chuck Wagon Gang In Concert at Beaverton, AL. F. W. B. Church, Fri., 5/13/2011, 7:00 P. M

The Chuck Wagon Gang

The Chuck Wagon Gang 2010

The World Famous Chuck Wagon Gang, will be in concert at Beaverton Free Will Baptist Church in Beaverton, AL., on Friday, May 13, 2011 at 7:00 P. M., the church is located on County Road 49 approximately 1/4 mile South of Highway 278 in Beaverton, AL.

The Chuck Wagon Gang is known for having recorded songs such as “Echoes from the Burning Bush”, “The Church In The Wildwood”, “I’ll Fly Away” and other familiar old songs that so identify gospel music’s most recognizable style of music. Everyone has a special invitation to attend an evening of Southern Gospel Music with The Chuck Wagon Gang.

There will be a $5.00 admission at the door and a love offering will be received. Phone 205-698-8926 or 205-698-0265 or 205-698-8487 for more information.

The number one gospel group of all time according to a poll of SGM Radio listeners is: The Chuck Wagon Gang. The results of this poll listed the accomplishments of the Gang over the past 74 years such as being history’s best record selling gospel quartet (over 39 million sold on Columbia Records alone) and the fact that the Chuck Wagon Gang’s style has remained consistent through all those years. Dad Carter would have it no other way. “Sing the old songs and sing ’em the way I taught you,” was his sage advice. And the Gang has done just that.
Today’s group is Dave Emery, Shaye Smith, Stan Hill, Julie Hudson, and Joe Rotton.The quartet still maintains the clear, uncluttered sound of pure music that so established them in the early 1930’s. Four voices and one guitar and an acoustic bass is all it takes for this evergreen foursome to transport the listener to another time and another place where life was a bit simpler and time seemed to move to a slower pace.
