In the beginning the almighty had but one talent.  That talent was not to rule, not to dictate, not to punish nor to empower, it was simply to create.  The almighty created heaven and earth in six days and on the seventh day he rested. The Bible says he created us in his image and after his likeness, which means that it is also written in our DNA to create.

Local residents turned out to enjoy Linden’s Second Annual Art Walk on Friday, June 20. I enjoyed hosting the art walk that was the result of several months of coordination with my community partners, Kathryn Friday of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and Brenda Tuck of the Marengo County Economic Development Authority.

Alabama’s first state capital, Cahawba, was founded along the fertile banks of the Alabama and Cahaba Rivers in 1819. At the time, this wilderness city was home to some of America’s bravest men and women, people determined to prosper and build up a new state.
