It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Written by

By Derek Osborn To those who do not live for Saturdays in the fall (and luckily there’s not many of you) then don’t look now, but it’s time to strap it up. So get the coolers cleaned out, dust off the portable grill, break out the lawn chairs and put on the colors of your choice…it’s the most wonderful time of the year!

This scrumptious BBQ pizza is a snap to prepare, and it’s perfect for a quick, easy meal. And these Lemon Crinkle Cookies? Oh, they are perfect if you’re craving a light dessert to satiate your sweet tooth.

Bon appétit!

By Stan J. Griffin When Nick Saban's University of Alabama football team opens the 2014 season on August 30 in Atlanta's Georgia Dome against West Virginia, it will be doing so with a cast of new characters in some very crucial positions, including on the defensive side of the ball, at the quarterback position and even in the offensive coordinator spot, with the ever-controversial Lane Kiffin now in charge of the Crimson Tide attack.

But despite the fact that the 2014 edition of Alabama football will likely be counting on quite a few newcomers as it heads into the opener against the Mountaineers, this has not stopped many college football analysts from again placing the Tide near or at the top of their respective preseason polls. Many of those pigskin gurus have prognosticated that the Tide will at least be a participant in college football's inaugural playoff in 2014.

The fair, which kicked off on August 19, is at Sokol Park in Northport through this Sunday, August 24.
