In The Star
Jan. 14, 1938, in The Star: Anniston baseball fans will be happy to learn that regional league games are on their way back to the Model City. Local organizers posted a $1,000 forfeit bond at Southeastern League headquarters in Selma today to show their commitment to a Class B team. Leaders in the effort now have to go about raising $6,000 deemed necessary to carry a team through spring training and handle miscellaneous expenses. The Anniston City Council has already agreed to improve Johnston Field, where the current lighting capacity needs to be increased and bleachers and plumbing need repairs. Class B ball is said to be two notches higher than the old Georgia-Alabama league in which the city previously participated. Also this date: Mid-term exams begin Monday, Jan. 17, for pupils in the higher grades of Anniston public schools. The exams will be completed during the week and the spring term will begin Jan. 24.
Jan. 14, 1988, in The Star: A steady drop in Anniston’s crime rate in the early 1980s was more than wiped out by rises during 1985 and 1986, but a 9 percent drop last year resumed the trend and put the crime rate at its lowest level since 1984. Anniston police answered 29,127 calls inside the city limits during 1987. Also during the year, 4,008 major felonies were reported.
