‘Go Build Alabama’ visits LBWCC

Written by Staff


LBW Community College in Opp recently welcomed Jason Phelps, executive director of Alabama Construction Recruitment Institute (ACRI) on a stop for the statewide “Go Build Alabama” campaign addressing the shortage of skilled workers.


ACRI was created by the Alabama legislature at the request of the commercial and industrial construction industry to address the predicted shortage of skilled workers in the state in nearly all skilled trades. To address the shortage, ACRI created the “Go Build Alabama” campaign consisting of a full scale comprehensive marketing program and an advisory team that includes educators and industry professionals.

“For every four people that leave the trades, only one new person enters,” said Phelps. “In production occupations in Alabama, 5,500 jobs are open each year. Through education and training, adding in a little experience, students can become skilled tradesmen.”

The ACRI team will take the “Go Build Alabama” message of “learn a skill, master a trade,” throughout the state to educate people on how to redefine their idea of success, and recruit men and women who are willing to learn a skill that will offer big opportunities in their futures.

“The idea is to learn ways to apply the skills learned in areas such as welding and electronics, and put them to work across the construction industry.”

Students in LBWCC’s programs in air conditioning and refrigeration program, welding, and industrial electronics attended the presentation. They learned about the upcoming Go Build Alabama mobile application, and how it will be a work history at their fingertips by allowing them to store certifications and employment history for completing employment applications on the go.

State Trooper Shooting

Written by Staff

DOTHAN POST -- At approximately 5:30 p.m. Saturday, April 19, an Alabama State Trooper attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation on Geneva County 57. A brief pursuit ensued and ended when the suspect’s vehicle stopped abruptly and the suspect opened fired on the trooper and shot him. The suspect was taken into custody at the scene.  A second suspect fled into the woods, but he was captured a short time later.

The trooper was transported to Flowers Hospital, treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.  Both suspects --  Zachary Taylor Wood, 23, of Glenwood and Dillon Scott Rafsky, 21, of Enterprise -- also were transported to area hospitals for treatment of gunshot wounds. Upon release from hospitals, they were transported to the Geneva County Jail, and Alabama State Troopers  charged them with attempted murder. 

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation (ABI), the investigative division of the Alabama Department of Public Safety, is investigating.  Nothing further is available as the investigation is ongoing. 

The Alabama Department of Public Safety would like to thank all law enforcement agencies involved for their assistance.
