Ala. county votes for largest municipal bankruptcy
Nov 2011
 — Leaders of Alabama's most populous county on Wednesday voted to declare an estimated $4.1 billion bankruptcy, the largest for a municipality in U.S. history.

Two months after it seemed Jefferson County had struck a deal to settle the debt, the commissioners took the action. It came after spending about six hours over two days meeting with its lawyers to discuss legal options. Those options included a Chapter 9 bankruptcy filing and a settlement with creditors on the county's $3.14 billion sewer debt.

Jefferson County has been trying since 2008 to avoid filing bankruptcy over the debt, which resulted from a mix of outdated sewer pipes, the lagging economy, court rulings and public corruption. At the same time, it faces a separate shortfall of as much as $50 million in its operating budget because courts struck down a major local tax as unconstitutional.

Commissioner Jimmie Stephens made the motion to file for bankruptcy. He said the commission and creditors never could complete the tentative agreement they reached in September and remained about $140 million apart.

"Despite our best efforts the negotiations had not produced any decision that fairly treats the county and our citizens. And it did not appear that further negotiations would produce that," he said.

The September agreement called for $1 billion in concessions from creditors and sewer rate increases of up to 8.2 percent a year. He said that without more concessions, the rates would have had to be above 8.2 percent.

He said filing the largest municipal bankruptcy ever will create an initial shock, but it will be good to start resolving a financial problem that has hindered the county for too long.

"Jefferson County has, in effect, been in bankruptcy for three years," he said.

The vote comes just two months after a preliminary deal was struck with Wall Street bankers that would have allowed the county to avoid the embarrassment of filing the largest municipal bankruptcy in the U.S. However, despite the deal providing a hopeful sign, there was still a possibility that bankruptcy would be necessary.

The deal was to have required state lawmakers to approve a mix of local tax hikes, budget changes and other legislation to resolve the billions in debt.

Jefferson County has about 658,000 residents and is home to both Alabama's largest city, Birmingham, and its medical and financial centers.

The settlement proposal with Wall Street investors led by JPMorgan Chase & Co included the lenders agreeing to forgive about $1 billion in debt, the county refinancing about $2 billion, and the a series of sewer rate increases.

If Jefferson County follows through in filing for bankruptcy, it would overshadow the one filed by record-holder Orange County, Calif., in 1994 over debts totaling $1.7 billion.

Pennsylvania's capital city of Harrisburg recently sought bankruptcy protection under similar circumstances as it struggled with about $300 million in debt from a trash incinerator that began operating in 1972.

A federal court forced Jefferson County to begin a huge upgrade of its outdated and overwhelmed sewer system to meet federal clean-water standards in the 1990s, and officials used bonds to finance the improvements. Outside advisers suggested a series of complex deals with variable-rate interest that were later shown to be laced with bribes and influence-peddling.

Loan payments rose quickly because of increasing interest rates as global credit markets struggled, and the county could no longer afford its payments. Meanwhile, a string of elected officials, public employees and business people were convicted of rigging the transactions that helped put the county in so much trouble.

Those convicted in the graft investigation include then-Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford, a former president of the Jefferson County Commission; and ex-Commissioner Chris McNair, whose daughter was one of the four black girls killed in an infamous Ku Klux Klan church bombing in Birmingham in 1963. Langford and McNair both are in federal prison.

4 massive explosions rock shipyard in Mobile, Alabama
April 25, 2013
Four large explosions on a fuel barge in Mobile, Alabama could be felt from miles away in Spanish Fort and Daphne, Alabama, over 10 miles away across the river, according to local reports. The first blast occurred on a natural gas barge on the east side of Mobile River around 8:30 pm local time. Officials told Fox 10 News that there were no fatalities although some crew members did report burn injuries.The first explosion was followed shortly by three more blasts.

A fourth explosion was reported by Fox 10 news reporter Lenise Ligon amidst scanner chatter amongst firemen that one of the barges may have hundreds of gallons of gasoline still on board. Authorities are reported to have requested a one-mile evacuation zone around the shipyard. Initial reports indicated that the explosions came from one vessel, although the Mobile Fire Department’s official Twitter feed reported that the blasts came from two barges.

Coast Guard representatives however told the Alabama Press-Register that a single barge had produced the multiple explosions. Fire and emergency crews rushed to the scene Wednesday night. According to the local police scanner, rescue units are struggling to put out the blaze. The barges were at the Austal shipyard, early reports said. They were transporting natural gas and were believed to be partially emptied, according to Steve Huffman, a spokesperson for Mobile Fire-Rescue. The crew on the Carnival cruise liner, which sits an estimated 1,000 feet away from the blast site, has been evacuated, local Channel 6 News reports. Emergency responders plan to let the fire burn out naturally throughout the night, citing conditions too dangerous to approach. Part of Austral, Alabama has also been evacuated.

Apparently, the impact around the city was tremendous!
Apparently, there not only were 4 explosions, but the first 2 and the last 2 were made separately after a space of 20 minutes.


7 explosions in Alabama
Fuel barges explode, catch fire on Mobile River in Alabama, 3 are in critical condition.
A large fire that began with explosions aboard 2 fuel barges in Mobile, Alabama was rocked by a 7th explosion.
Firefighters from Mobile and US Coast Guard responded to a pair of explosions involving the gas barges in an area of the Mobile River east of downtown.
As they were responding, a third explosion occurred an hour later.  Additional explosions followed over the next few hours.
I am NOT saying this was terrorism, but that is how they operate, to kill resuce workers too.

Alabama Airbus crash kills 2
Aug 14, 2013
UPS A-300 Airbus cargo plane crashes near Birmingham, Alabama airport. The bodies were found 100 yards from fuselage.
The crash site is in an isolated field outside the airport perimeter fence.
Weather conditions in the area were rainy with low clouds.

Ill-fated UPS jet was on autopilot seconds before crash
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama  - The UPS cargo jet that crashed in Alabama this week, killing its two crew members, was flying on autopilot until seconds before impact, even after an alert that it was descending too quickly.
The autopilot was engaged until the last second of recorded data.
The flight data recorder aboard the United Parcel Service jet showed that its auto throttle also was engaged until moments before the fiery crash.

The Airbus A300 jet was approaching the runway at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth airport before dawn when it clipped the trees in an adjacent residential area and crashed into a steep embankment well short of the runway.

The pilots received a low altitude warning 7 seconds before the sound of impact.
The pilots did not issue a distress call.
A "full instrument" landing was not highly advisable at Birmingham-Shuttlesworth.
The airport can be tricky to land at because it is nestled among hills and that is especially true of Runway 18.
The crash occurred shortly before dawn in rainy conditions as low-lying clouds hung over Birmingham.

WHY on earth were they on auto pilot while landing?!  Exclamation  Question
That is alarming!

Alabama EV-D68
October 10,2015  Mommy my hands are going numb

The mother of a five-year-old girl paralyzed by the enterovirus has spoken out about the hell of watching her young daughter battle the deadly illness.  Kinley Galbreath spent the past 3 weeks in intensive care at Children's of Alabama, where she remains on a ventilator paralyzed from her arms to her legs.

The child was admitted to hospital and diagnosed with the potentially fatal respiratory illness enterovirus D-68 (EV-D68).  The mother said: As she was getting ready to doze off, she said 'mommy, my hands are going numb' and by that point she started to lose movement in her neck.  The third day she lost movement from her legs down.

The actual number of EV-D68 infections is likely significantly higher since some health officials are not testing every suspected case.

Vaccinated children are getting this!  (Natural News)

Alabama queerage
February 8, 2015
 -  Alabama queerage TOMORROW Feb. 9th, and the filthy queers are standing in line.
A federal appeals court cleared the way for same-sex 'marriages' in Alabama
Attorney General Luther Strange asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the 'weddings' until the justices settle the issue nationwide later this year. The attorney general predicted there will be "unnecessary confusion" next week among local officials who issue marriage licenses absent a stay.  The confusion that has been created by the District Court's ruling could linger for months until the U.S. Supreme Court resolves this issue once and for all.

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in April and is expected to issue a ruling by June regarding whether gay couples nationwide have a fundamental right to marry and whether states can ban such unions.
http://www.newsmax.com/US/gay-mar...labama-court/2015/02/03/id/622508

Alabama Judge Roy Moore delayed this filthy SIN earlier.
If USSC sanctions SIN Federally, nationwide, the curse of GOD will slam hard on the entire nation.

Alabama Courts Issue First Marriage Licenses To Same-Sex Couples  
February 9, 2015
-  Alabama has become the 37th state to recognize same-sex marriage, after the U.S. Supreme Court denied a request that would have extended the state's ban Monday. But the state's chief justice says probate courts don't have to follow federal rulings on the issue.

Update at 9:15 a.m. ET: Supreme Court Rejects State's Request
Expressing regret at the Supreme Court's decision, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange says it will probably bring more confusion and will keep him "from enforcing Alabama's laws against same-sex marriage."

NPR's Debbie Elliott reports that confusion is already being seen.
"Some counties began issuing marriage licenses to gay couples this morning," she says, "but others are not."

First same-sex marriages have started across Alabama  
Alabama began issuing same-sex marriage licenses on Monday morning, after a last ditch effort by the state's chief justice to prevent the marriages failed
Despite resistance from some state judges to begin to issue licenses for same-sex couples, Alabama officially became the 37th state where same sex-couples can tie the knot.

The marriages moved forward after the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday morning denied the Alabama attorney general's request to extend a hold on a judge's ruling overturning the state's ban on gay marriage.

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange had asked the Supreme Court to keep the decision on hold because justices are expected to issue a nationwide ruling on gay marriage later this year.
Some local judges were still refusing to issue marriage licenses despite the Supreme Court order. At least one local court instead handed out an order from the state's chief justice, who has long been an an outspoken opponent of gay marriage.

The queer USSC
Alabama Sodomage
February 10, 2015  -  Scalia, Thomas slam court for OK'ing Alabama Sodomage.
The queer USSC - Of the 9 judges, 7 love SIN.  TRAGIC FOR AMERICA
.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas joined by Justice Antonin Scalia, in blasting fellow justices for upholding a lower court ruling against Alabama gay marriage ban.
By effectively upholding a lower court ruling against Alabama's homosexual marriage ban, the Supreme Court has likely tipped its hand about what the outcome will be when it rules on the issue this spring.

The opinion was most remarkable for the sharply worded criticism of fellow justices, with Thomas calling the decision "yet another example of this court's increasingly cavalier attitude towards the states," adding that the high court has not "shown the people of Alabama the respect they deserve."

God bless Justices Thomas and Scalia. How refreshing to know not all judges and courts are activists bent.
At least 3 on USSC are queers, maybe more, and if not, at least agree with SIN.

Alabama judge: What's next? Daddy-daughter marriages?

Why did Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore order state’s probate judges to telling them to refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples?

Besides arguing that judges weren’t bound by the ruling of a federal judge that the gay marriage ban is unconstitutional, Moore hinted it would lead down a slippery slope, including marriages between parents and their children.

“Do they stop with one man and one man or one woman and one woman?” he asked. “Or do they go to multiple marriages? Or do they go to marriages between men and their daughters or women and their sons?”

And Moore is standing by his assertation that gay marriage is a state issue.

“I think that the definition of the word marriage is not found within the powers designated to the federal government,” Moore said.

On Tuesday, more Alabama courthouses allowed same-sex marriages despite Moore’s objections, but other counties still refused, which prompted a new round of federal court action.

So far, of the 67 counties in the state, gay couples can marry in at least 10 of them.

Baptist Pastor Officiates One Of Alabama's First Same-Sex Weddings

Ellin Jimmerson, a Baptist pastor in Huntsville, Alabama, said she was surprised when she was asked to perform one of Alabama's first same-sex wedding ceremonies after the state overturned its ban on gay marriage. Although she has been supportive of the LGBTQ community, she's best known for her immigration activism.

"I cannot get my head around what happened yesterday," Jimmerson, 63, told The Huffington Post over the phone on Tuesday. "It wasn't just a local story."

Monday marked the first day same-sex weddings were legal in Alabama. Despite a direct mandate from U.S. District Judge Callie V.S. Granade, many probate judges throughout the state refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

“Now you’ve got a situation where you’ve got hundreds of people having no pastor to turn to to perform their wedding ceremony, nor can they go to the courthouse to get a license,” Jimmerson said.

A group of volunteers organized "Wedding Week," a movement to officiate and celebrate both same-sex and straight weddings, in response to these hurdles. For many couples -- about 42 on Monday alone, Jimmerson said -- this was a ticket to tying the knot.

The first couple scheduled to get married in Huntsville -- Adrian Thomas and Yashinari Effinger from Birmingham -- had requested a Baptist pastor to officiate their wedding. Heather Reed, a gay marriage advocate and one of the four Wedding Week organizers, looked for a Baptist pastor who would be willing to participate but found that many were uncomfortable agreeing to be in the public eye.

Jimmerson, who serves as minister to the community at Huntsville's Weatherly Heights Baptist Church but is not a paid staff member, agreed to participate in Wedding Week and quickly found herself the object of media attention.

“It’s been huge, and there’s been a lot of focus on me," Jimmerson said. "I’ve decided the formula for celebrity must be Alabama plus same-sex marriage plus Baptist minister with a photogenic rainbow scarf.”

The organizers also invited same-sex marriage supporters to get ordained online and come to Big Spring Park in downtown Huntsville to officiate the weddings.

"It has been phenomenal, the amount the community has come together to make this happen," Reed told HuffPost. "Yesterday there were over 60 officiants present. Only a handful are actual members of the clergy. Most of them got ordained just for this event."

Others in the community donated wedding cakes, dresses, hair-styling services, flowers and more, Reed said. The Huntsville Embassy Suites donated its ballroom for a nominal cost for a reception Monday evening and a deejay offered his services as well.

For Reed, the state's reversal of the gay marriage ban came as a shock. Reed married her wife, who serves as an army chaplain, in Maine last year. They have two kids and live in Huntsville -- a fairly liberal city compared to the rest of Alabama, Reed said. Even so, they never expected to see same-sex marriages become legal in their community.

"This came out of left field for us," Reed said. "Never in a million years did we think this was going to happen."

In a 2014 survey by the Public Religion Research Institute, 59 percent of Alabama residents said they opposed or strongly opposed same-sex marriage.

This degree of change can be unsettling for some, Jimmerson said. Opposition to many things in American history, such as interracial marriage, has been based in fear and discrimination, she said, adding that she thinks same-sex marriage will follow the same trajectory.

"For so long we thought of same-sex marriages as being a scandal, and then you add to that what people understand to be something called 'biblical marriage,'" Jimmerson said. "[But] our idea of one man one woman in a union based on love just doesn't appear in the Bible."

"I think we just have to realize that we are cultural beings as well as religious people and we have to learn to draw a distinction between what we're afraid of and insecure about and what God really demands of us -- which is to love one another," she said.
