al: OPELIKA LOVE BIRDS - a 70th anniversary celebration - 01/29/12 02:57 AM
I had the most delightful visit this week with long-time Opelika residents, Jack and Betty Walton. After seventy years together, the Opelika Observer deemed it newsworthy, and asked me to do the story. Throughout our conversation, I couldn't help but reflect on the most evident and enduring qualities that create a strong relationship and prosperous community legacy. It all begins with caring about each other. I am grateful for amazing folks that are the neighbors in Opelika... Let me introduce you to Betty and Jack, and their story that was published in the January 27th issue:

al: AREA'S BEST HOMES_902 Floral St Opelika AL _Featured Property For Sale - 01/01/12 12:46 PM
This AIRPLANE BUNGALOW home is a design that grew out of the Craftsman movement in the early part of the 20th century. The Craftsman movement developed from the English Arts and Crafts Movement that left a distinct architectural legacy, that has withstood the test of time for its historic value and visual appeal. 
This particular style is characterized by the cupola effect of the second floor that rests like a cockpit over the two wings of the main level.

al: HELOC HELP FOR HOMEBUYERS - Bridging the gap & avoiding mortgage insurance - 06/18/11 02:48 AM
When I began selling homes in Lee County (at the turn of the century :-) I met Barry Jones, a mortgage broker, who currently manages the local office of  STARKEY MORTGAGE. Over the years, through thick and thin (and thinner!), he has been my number one "go to" consultant on all things related to home loans and getting qualified. To this day, I continue to be supported in my business with his expertise, knowledge, troubleshooting approaches, and consistent, excellent results. Education packs a power punch in the way he operates his business. He stays on top of the ever-shifting and complex … (8 comments)

al: Who is Moses? Moses George Hogan?? - 01/29/11 12:51 AM
TODAY, at 2:00 the Auburn University Gospel and Chamber Choirs present THE MOSES HOGAN MEMORIAL FESTIVAL in Auburn Admission is FREE! Who is Moses? Moses George Hogan?? Way after the biblical Moses, and just before there were musical Blues, African American folk songs worked on the railroads, picked bales of cotton, and sang softly in the night.  These songs of slaves, also called African American spirituals, were, essentially, songs of tears. While they expressed a spiritual devotion, the songs were drawn from depths of sorrow. Much of the music gives voice to the prayers and anguish of a people, a culture, … (7 comments)
