Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley was in Chambers County on Tuesday to confirm grant awards in Valley and Lanett. Above, Gov. Bentley (second from left) presents a letter confirming the grant to Valley Mayor Leonard Riley. The city will be receiving a $250,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to cover the portion of the cost in a two-year project to expand Valley Community Center. At far left is former State Rep. DuWayne Bridges, who advocated a new center, and at right, State Sen. Gerald Dial, State Rep. Isaac Whorton and Alabama Department of Senior Services (ADSS) Board Chair Ray Edwards, all of whom have supported having a new senior center.
