What is the Wetumpka Impact Crater?

Wetumpka, Alabama sits right on the bullís eye of the greatest natural disaster in Alabamaís history. The hills just east of downtown are the eroded remains of a five-mile-wide impact crater that was blasted into the bedrock of what is now Elmore County.


Dr. King will conduct the free public lecture on the science of the Crater on February 25th at 7:00pm in the Wetumpka Civic Center, Main Street. This is an excellent opportunity to hear how scientists have proven the size and scope of the impact and get an update on Dr Kingís most recent research related to the crater.

 

The Friday, February 26th tours will be open to a limited number of school students on a first reserved basis.  Teachers can call Marilee Tankersley, (334)567-4637 for reservations and additional information.

On Saturday, February 27th, the Crater Tours will be one hour and a half each, starting at 8:30 am, with van transportation provided.  The tour is divided into two parts, first, a video and orientation, followed by the van tour.  Total cost of both parts of the tour including a guidebook is $20 for adults, $10 for children up to 12, accompanied by an adult.  (Not recommended for very small children.)  You can attend only the lecture and the charge is $5, with children up to age 12, admitted free.  Additional guidebooks can be purchased for $5, if available.



Lectures begin at 8:30 am, 9:45 am, 11:00 am & 12:30 pm.  The van tours will load immediately following the lecture.  Van tour space is limited and must be reserved by February 19th.  Participants need to meet at the Wetumpka Administrative Center on Main Street, 15 minutes prior to their tour time.

There is some walking on the tours.   Reservations are only confirmed on payment of the fee.

Calling all Women-Owned Small Businesses

 

The SBA is seeking input and comments on certification of Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Businesses (EDWOSB) in connection with the Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contract Program (WOSB Program).

 

SBA is planning to amend its regulations to implement section 825 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (2015 NDAA). Section 825 of the 2015 NDAA removed the statutory authority allowing WOSBs and EDWOSBs to self-certify.

SBA intends to draft regulations to implement the statutory changes. 

Review The WOSB and EDWOSB Announcement of Proposed Rule Making (ANPRM) online.
