      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:

      http://news.google.com/

      http://www.topix.net/

      http://news.yahoo.com/

      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.

      Mobile and surrounding communities are on the verge of becoming the next “boomtown” in the Gulf South region. A massive steel mill, one of the largest current investments in the county, is currently under construction near southern Alabama ’s largest city. Mobile has also landed a key aircraft assembly plant. Chris Newbold examines the effects on the region from this influx of high-paying jobs and the “spin-off” factor. http://www.aptv.org/
