Thursday in The Anniston Star

Check out Thursday's Anniston Star for these stories:

Members of the old industrial fastpitch softball league, now in their 70s and 80s, gathered for their first reunion in decades. Steve Ivey was there to hear some of the stories from the days when pipefitters and textile workers were some of the county's sports heroes.

Markeshia Ricks attended a meeting of a joint commission on women, girls and prison established by Anniston's representative, Barbara Boyd. What she learned was that Calhoun and Talladega counties are among the leaders in numbers of women sent to state prisons.

One of the men indicted in the murders of two Alexandria grandparents several years ago is likely to be released on probation. Two other men charged were convicted of capital murder. Nick Cenegy examines this story.
