      Alabama History/Culture in the News: USE THIS ONE & Bonus Material

      NOTE:

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are working at the time I send this email and post them to the web page listing. Many of the articles listed are printed in other Alabama newspapers; in general, I do not attempt to list all appearances of an article. Some dates given are those when the item was posted to the web site. Some items are listed without links because I could not find online versions.

      Feel free to forward this email as desired....

      AND NOW THE NEWS...

      Additional articles can often be found at Google, Topix or Yahoo news sites:

      Please note that many articles continue beyond the single web page I have linked here. Web sites related to some articles often appear in the "Bonus Material" section.

      Jamie Dodson will sign copies of his new historical fiction novel for teens, "Flying Boats & Spies, A Nick Grant Adventure," Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Coffee Tree Books and Brew, 7900 Bailey Cove Road . "The story is about building Pan American Airways flying boat bases across the Pacific during a vicious cold war that existed between Japan and America ," Dodson said. "The animosity between the two nations was very similar to the recent cold war between the former Soviet Union and the United States . However, it's less well known." The story opens in March 1935. Dodson, an intelligence officer with Redstone Arsenal's Aviation and Missiles Lab, started writing novels in 2001. This is his first published work. He has more than 25 years of experience in counterintelligence, special intelligence, signals intelligence and intelligence analysis for the U.S. military. He's served with Special Operations, Army Aviation, Airborne Infantry and Military Police.
