Dinner and a Book – FBMPL

The Friends of the Bay Minette Public Library will be presenting a Dinner and a Book event at Teresa’s BBQ in Bay Minette, Alabama, on Thursday, June 29 at 6:00 PM.

Author: Alan White. Book: One Season.

*Attendees purchase their own meals.*


Just one season…it can change things. Even in the backwoods of south Alabama.

It seemed the whole world was changing in 1969, but Joe Parker, widowed and 67, had little hope that his lonely life would ever be different. At least turkey season was about to start, and his grandson Connor was coming to visit soon.

Connor was embittered by a tragedy he didn’t understand. In the city, being 15 was harrowing enough. Spring Break promised a reprieve from the distress and some time with PawPaw.

Strange how things can change.

One Season is the story of transition in a family…with the help of a few wild turkeys.

Tropical Storm Cindy

It feels like monsoon season has come to Baldwin County, Alabama, especially with Tropical Storm Cindy dumping several inches of rain on us. Her wet, slow-moving march across the county is causing cabin fever in residents and vacationers alike.

We drove down from Bay Minette to check on the state of affairs at the beaches today. As many of you know, locals and vacationers alike have been warned not to swim, for obvious safety reasons. Law enforcement officials have stated that those caught swimming in these dangerous conditions could face jail and/or fines. I was surprised to find that many more people than I expected to were respecting the mandates to keep out of the surf.

While some vacationers’ spirits may have been dampened by the wet weather, many were still finding ways to enjoy themselves at the indoor amusements such as The Track, the new “Escape House” at Waterville, and Adventure Island.

I have included pictures and video from our tropical storm trip to the beach below, particularly water levels in the Bear Point community and surf near the Lee Calloway Bridge.
