Sears and K-Mart Closures
By: The Midnight Rider
Recently our great newspaper, the Times Daily, did an article about the closing of various Sears and K-Mart Stores. It is a shame that these two iconic businesses are closing. I can remember when there was a Sears in the Town Plaza, in Sheffield, when I was a kid. There was also one on Tennessee Street in Florence, across from the Gun Runner. Both of those closed when the Sears in the Mall opened.
I can remember when K-Mart was the place to shop. Everyone went there. This was before Wal-Mart. There use to be a Big-K in the Towne Plaza in Sheffield. It’s amazing that all these business were in the Towne Plaza back then and now they are no longer there and the Plaza is falling apart.

PUBLIC INFORMATIONAL MEETING – Family Law Reform
The Alabama Family Rights Association (ALFRA) will host a family law reform informational meeting on , at located at the Coldwater Inn, 712 Highway 72, West Tuscumbia, Alabama 35674, Conference Room.
The meeting is open to the public and is sponsored by Concerned Citizens for the Children’s Future in Colbert County, Lauderdale County, and adjacent counties.
ALFRA will discuss the ongoing efforts to change the current Alabama child custody law (enacted in 1852) to ensure that no child is put at risk. Such efforts include proposals to be pursued in the 2017 legislative session where all children have a fundamental right to spend time with their two fit parents regardless of their parents’ marital status.
We would like to invite those impacted by the family law practices to attend: clergy, elected officials and candidates, parents, school counselors and other educational staff members, the administrative office of courts, therapists, mediators, parent-child coordinators, social workers, Alabama DHR representatives, family law attorneys, district attorneys, and judges. One of the greatest economic stimuli for our state is to protect and safeguard the parent-children relationship.
