Capitol Report – Roger H. Bedford, Jr.
December 22, 2011 8:51
Capitol report for December 22nd

I certainly hope this capitol report finds you enjoying a very Merry Christmas with your family and friends and that 2012 will be one of the most prosperous and happy years for you. We ended the year with an opportunity to give out several grants in the City of Red Bay. It was my pleasure to present a $1000 grant to the Town of Hodges for their Equestrian Trail. This will be a wonderful tourist attraction as well as something we can use here at home on a daily basis with friends and family. I commend Mayor Ed Crouch and the Hodges City Council for going forward on this important project.

It was also a pleasure for me to award $400 to the Red Bay Kindergarten classes to help with projects that they needed. I was able to present $1000 to the Red Bay Big Brothers and Big Sisters Program as well as $1000 to the Red Bay Lions Club Christmas Clothing and Food Project. I want to thank the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Program as well as the Lions Club and other civic organizations that have reached out and helped so many unfortunate Alabamians during this Holiday season. We should always remember the real reason for the season is the birth of or Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It was a pleasure to recently travel to Gadsden for a seven county Democratic dinner to honor Dr. Paul Hubbert. Dr. Paul Hubbert is retiring after decades of service to the State of Alabama , teachers and support personnel. He is originally from our Senate District in Hubbertville and his wonderful wife Ann is from Walker County. I hope that you will keep Dr. Hubbert and his family in your prayers over the holiday season as he is having to take dialysis three days a week now. The meeting was held at the Civic Center in Gadsden where he said in his remarks that he held his first big teachers meeting in 1969. So it was appropriate that what he deemed as his last speech was made there in the same building. It was a great turn out of local elected officials. I want to commend Representative Craig Ford on putting together such a wonderful fine event.

It was certainly a treat to have the whooping cranes fly through Franklin County again this year. The Russellville Airport played temporary home to people and cranes making their way from Wisconsin to Florida. This is an operation ensuring the continuation of the rare whooping crane species, this is headed up by a non-profit organization Operation Migration that was started in 1994.

I enjoyed visiting with some of the teachers and students at the Belgreen High School cafeteria recently. They have a great group of support personnel and teachers in Belgreen. The lunch room was very clean and the students very friendly.

I also had the pleasure of visiting with Mayor Doug Gunnin and Commissioner Don Barnwell in Hackleburg last week. We are working on getting some new industry into Hackleburg. We must work everyday to keep the jobs we have here and to bring in new jobs with better paying benefits for our workforce.

 Words can not express how much we appreciate the not for profit organization Kaboom and the Disney Magic of Healthy Living Program helping the Phil Campbell Elementary School receive a brand new play ground. This play ground, as you know, was destroyed in the tornadoes of April 27th that took the lives of 26 people in Franklin County including my good friend and second grade teacher Patricia Gentry, fourth grader Ethan Knox and third grader Edgar Mojica. Therefore it’s appropriate that the new playground dedication which took place Saturday, December 17th, be known as the Gentry-Knox-Mojica Playground. I think this is a wonderful and positive sign of the rebuilding in our Senate District and the progress we are making after the terrible tornadoes that ripped through our five counties.

I had a great time celebrating Christmas with all the good people of Marion County and Guin at the Christmas gathering at the National Guard Armory. It was a wonderful time to shop and fellowship as well as see so many friends from around the area. I bought two homemade Christmas ornaments for our Christmas tree. I also had the privilege of seeing Coach Funk again and congratulating the Marion County Red Raiders on their State Championship. The band was outstanding and it really set a positive tone for the Holiday Season.

I hope you will also use this opportunity as we’ve talked about before to shop at home so that your tax dollars will turn over in the local community, helping our schools and businesses.

We received good news in Hackleburg recently when it was announced that there will be 20 new public housing units built-in Hackleburg to replace a portion of those lost in the April tornadoes. The Marion County Housing Authority officials approved an agreement with a company submitting the lowest of eleven bids in the process. Congratulations goes out to H and N Construction, based in Florence, on the low bid to build the new units at the cost of 1.66 million dollars. We can use the jobs during the construction stage and can certainly appreciate the new housing units for it’s tenets. I’m pleased to see our Senate District and our State as a whole rebuilding so well after the destruction it suffered. We all know that this is a marathon and not a sprint but everyday we continue to get stronger and better.

From my family to yours I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
