Look Back ... to a busy 'Black Friday' in 1996

Nov. 29, 1946, in The Star: Anniston’s refusal to make a further payment of approximately $24,000 to Dethlefs & Hannon, contractors, for expenses incurred so far in the construction of the Medical Arts Building might result in legal action being brought against the city, as well as the suspension of further work on the structure, the contracting company said today. The city had until Nov. 22 to make the payment, which was due on Nov. 15. It’s estimated that the subsequent legal suit brought by Dethlefs & Hannon would cost the city at least $200,000. The builders are ready now to pour the concrete slab for the first floor, a task that needs to be done before inclement winter weather sets in. The building is the target of a lawsuit by a private party who claims the city has no right to use any municipal funds or resources to build an office building for private businessmen, i.e., doctors.
