      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 and blogs are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in or sometimes unrelated to 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.

      **Alabama Story: Nall
      Sunday, January 10, 2010, at 8pm [with other showings in January]
      Fred Nall Hollis, known internationally simply as Nall, grew up in Troy, Alabama. He is celebrated for his unique visual art. Nall credits life in Southern surroundings for his distinctive technique. In January's Alabama Story, Nall shares his captivating life story with a tender voice and bold accounts. It is as colorful and creative as his art-a tale of art imitating life and life imitating art.
