Looking for a Bargain? Or Maybe a History Lesson?

Are you looking for a bargain? Well, if you aren't, you should be; so if you haven't discovered Bargain Mom, you've been missing out on a multitude of great deals.

Some of the offers featured in the Bargain Mom Blog, are local to the Birmingham area, but many are statewide and feature savings and coupons from such stores as Aldi's and Walgreen's. Try it once, and we guarantee you'll become a fan of this fantastic blog.


Friday, November 6th, will be the last regularly scheduled Ghost Walk for 2009. Shoals historian and raconteur Debra Glass will be happy to offer special tours for large groups, but this may be your last chance this year; don't fail to take advantage of it.

Also, several booksellers have been sold out of Ms. Glass' series of ghost stories, but K's Cove in Elgin should have a new shipment next week, as well as several new offerings from Ellora's Cave.


Want to know what board positions are currently open within the City of Florence? Click here for a list of openings, as well a synopsis of other business discussed by the Florence Council yesterday.

Florence is in particular need of a new City Historian since the death of Mr. Bill McDonald. The position is extremely demanding of time, but we hope several will apply for the opening. No one can ever replace Mr. McDonald, but Florence deserves an active historian who will continue in McDonald's tradition. Any retired UNA profs out there?
