CCW Freedom Fest, Dothan, AL 7-7-18

July 23, 2018

  It was a hot summer night in Dothan, Alabama.  You could cut the tension in the air with a knife.  That sounds like lyrics from a Meat Loaf song.  However, this was not a song; this was live action and athleticism.  Fans began to pour into the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds for the Continental […]

It is that time of year again.  Summer Time.    It is time to be on the water, taking hikes and going fishing.  However it is also the time for snakes.  There seems to be more snake stories on Facebook as well as people coming into the store and telling about seeing them.  It is always […]

Tuscumbia Police helps one of it’s neighbors

June 18, 2018

You usually do not hear about the good that a Police Department does.  Mostly what you hear is the bad things.  As a former Police Officer (retired), I can tell you that a lot of good things go on behind the scenes that the citizens of that City or Town never know about.  This article […]
