Jackson Co. nixes courthouse security plan again

SCOTTSBORO, Ala. (AP) - The Jackson County Commission has
declined to reinstate a courthouse security plan despite the pleas
of a judge who reminded the commission of a 2006 shooting that
wounded two people.

District Judge Ralph Grider also recalled the 1972 car bombing
that nearly killed a circuit judge. But the commission voted 2-1
Thursday against reversing last week's decision to repeal the
state-approved security plan.

Commissioner Gaylen Stone, who called for rescinding the plan
Monday, opposes the use of a single door for the public to enter
the building.
