      NOTE:

       

       

       

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are presumably 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 either could not find online versions or could not find a free one.

       

       

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

       

       

      WARNING: Many articles on newspaper and magazine web sites are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in the posted articles. Some articles in these listings will unfortunately include such commentary.

       

       

       

      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.
