      **100 inept years mark constitution
      Birmingham News 2 Dec 2001

      **Dressed for Christmas; Albany, Old Decatur to show off holiday finery Saturday
      For a look inside several homes in Decatur's historic districts -- and their antiques and collections of Madonnas and crystal -- take the Christmas tour Saturday from 4 to 9 p.m.
         Thousands of shimmering lights will be visible outside the homes, and you may even glimpse an outdoor chandelier, but you'll want to go inside to see more.
         Sedama Poole is heading the tour for the Albany area, while Jamie Buckner and Missy Brown have been working on plans for Old Decatur.
         Owners of one residence in each area agreed to help give readers a preview of their homes and decorations.
         Three of the tour homes in the Albany district are linked, since they were originally built by A.Z. Bailey and R.H. Wolcott, who married sisters, and a brother, T.Z. Bailey. ..

      **1988 Dec 1- You've heard of the Rose Bowl. The Orange Bowl. The Sugar Bowl. But
      the Hurricane Bowl? The University of Alabama had been scheduled to play
      Texas A&M in College Station, Texas in September, but Hurricane Gilbert
      caused the game to be postponed when Crimson Tide coach Bill Curry refused
      to send his team to Texas. The hurricane went into Mexico and ESPN cameras
      the next day at game time showed brilliantly blue skies and fine weather at
      scheduled kickoff time. When the game was replayed on December 1st, the
      Crimson Tide destroyed the much-heralded Aggies 30-10.
