Seeking William Joseph (Bill) Ledlow

An out of state reader is seeking his brother. William Joseph Ledlow, known as Bill, was born in a small town in northern Illinois. Bill and his brother lost their mother in the early 1980s and their father in the early 1990s. At that point, they became separated. Bill's brother believes there is a good chance that he lives in the Tuscaloosa area or perhaps as far north as Winston County. Bill would be about 51 years old, is approximately 6' 3" tall, and has/had reddish hair.

We're asking anyone who might know or have known Bill to contact us here: shoalanda.speaks@gmail.com.

We're also asking any readers in the stated area to repost this blog on Facebook or link it to whatever forums or social networking sites to which you belong. On behalf of Bill's brother, we thank you for helping to reunite these two siblings.


Currently there are three announced candidates for Lauderdale County Superintendent of Schools. On the Democratic ticket, Jennifer Gray has joined Jerry Hill in seeking the position Dr. William Valentine is vacating. Here's a short bio from her Facebook page:

I have been married to Jeff Gray for 21 years. We have two children. Sydney graduated high school in 2009 and is a college senior. Connor is a high school senior. We are active members at First Baptist Church in Green Hill.

I have been an educator for 22 years spending 15 years as a classroom teacher at Cloverdale Jr. High School and Rogers High School. In 2005, I became the assistant principal at Brooks Elementary and remained there for 3 years. I am currently in my fourth year as Elementary Curriculum Director and Federal Programs Coordinator for the Lauderdale County School system. I hold a master's degree in Early Childhood Education, an EdS in Educational Administration from UNA and am on track to complete requirements for an EdD in Educational Leadership in 2012.

A reader asked us in the comment section whom we supported. We have not made that decision, but we thoroughly believe whoever the new superintendent may be, he or she needs experience in administration. This position should not be a learn as you go job.

We welcome announcements, bios, and mission statements from all Shoals candidates.


Comments welcome. No profanity. No vulgarity. No libelous statements. Get it? Got it! Good...
