Wednesday's paper

Per our morning planning meeting, here are some of the stories The Star is working on for tomorrow's paper:

Star reporter Crystal Jarvis has her sites on story related to the Georgia-based Avondale Mills announcement yesterday that it is shutting down operations across three Southern states. That's bad news for 4,000 employees who will lose their jobs. Jarvis is seeing what lessons residents of a Calhoun County's former mill towns can offer the newly unemployed in Sylacauga, Alexander City, Pell City, Rockford and other towns where Avondale had operations.

Dan Whisenhunt is preparing to cover tonight's Anniston City Council meeting. Expect a smoking ban and a sales tax holiday to be on the agenda.

In Oxford, Steve Ivey will cover the City Council's ongoing discussions regarding the sales tax holiday.
