      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. 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 newspaper or magazine 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.

      Join Doug Phillips for two brand new natural history adventures. At 8:00, Phillips retraces his Delta canoe trek of more than 20 years ago, again celebrating the natural wonders of the area and this time encountering hundreds of alligators, as he highlights Alabama ’s successful efforts in gaining protection for much of the Delta. And at 8:30, Phillips takes viewers on a quest to explore nature in art and the art in nature. Against the backdrop of Alabama ’s diverse native landscapes and natural beauty, the program visits with several Alabama artists of different modalities, from the performing arts, to the literary arts, to photography, as they transform and convey the marvels of nature through their creations.
