houses for sale: The Boll Weevil 100 in Enterprise, AL - 05/10/14 11:57 AM
Well, a semi-nice day to have the bike and distance running event know as "The Boll Weevil 100" here in Enterprise, Alabama. Started off around 70 degrees and didn't get too much warmer. Overcast and spotty showers kept the temperature down. I haven't seen the official numbers of runners and riders, but it should be a record year.
The local Enterprise Lions Club has spearheaded this effort. The VFW Chapter 6683, The American Legion Post 73, and L.A.V.A. (Lower Alabama Veterans Alliance) along with MANY local groups, organizations, businesses and individuals joined together to help show Wounded Veterans how much we care.

houses for sale: Gateway Estates Subdivision in Enterprise, Alabama - 06/21/12 11:48 PM
I've lived in this sub-divison on the northern edge of Enterprise for about 13 years. One of the reasons I picked it is evident in the pictures below - THE TREES!!! Plenty of them. And the yards are large enough so that you have a feeling of privacy. Deer go by my house to one of the several lakes and ponds in the sub-division. Fishing is allowed, so I may take the grand-kids down to one and try it soon.
