The sight of orange barrels is often the result of poor road conditions and delays. It is frustrating and feels never ending – there are times when I feel that way as well.  In the two previous Mayor’s Minutes I have endeavored to provide insight into the timelines, management, and challenges of rebuilding our community’s road and highway systems. If you missed the July and August editions, please visit www.tuscaloosa.com/government/mayor/mayors-minute. In this final installment, I want to focus on the “why.”  

Druid City Living always wants to recognize our great local businesses. To the new businesses - welcome to town! Remember: Shop local. 

The Tuscaloosa City Council District 4 special election is two weeks away, and a forum to introduce the candidates is planned for Sept. 26. Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Greater Tuscaloosa, the forum will be held at the First United Methodist Church from 6:30-7:30 p.m.

A beatdown is defined as an overwhelming defeat; to overpower; to conquer; to suppress. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. A vast majority of women have a personal connection to breast cancer – whether it be a friend, a sister, a mother, or themselves.

The Impact of Healthy, Nutritious Food...

  • One part of helping children get a healthy start is to offer foods that provide adequate nutrition and the appropriate number of calories.
  • Not only does proper nutrition help children grow to a healthy weight, it also positively influences cognitive development and important to preventing various health conditions.
  • Teaching children about healthy food and nutrition early will increase the likelihood they will continue to make healthy decisions regarding nutrition into adulthood.

Preston Lee Parker, 16, a junior at American Christian Academy (ACA) in Tuscaloosa, recently received a $1000 grant from the Masonic Grand Lodge of Alabama and Masonic Lodge 509 in Brookwood. The grant is to support ACA Fishing Team. 

Parker is the grandson of Robbie Wayne Parker of Cottondale. The fishing educational program is designed to introduce students to fishing and to show students the ever-increasing career and educational opportunities through fishing. It also shows students how the basic elements of their education are used by tournament anglers every day out on the water and how you can use fishing and having fun to sharpen those basic skills that will help you later in life - no matter what your career choice.
