I’ve gone walkabout again in Downtown Huntsville! This time I wandered through the Christmas trees on the Tinsel Trail in Big Spring Park. All the trees made me feel like I was in that Rudolph Reindeer Christmas show, only without the snow or storm or abdominal snowman! And, of course, I missed Clarice. This is my Christmas treat for you.
Huntsville, Alabama – home of NASA, Rocket Scientist Werner Von Braun, The US Space & Rocket Center, Redstone Arsenal and King Cotton – provides many stories that are locally inspired but that are often of national interest as well. Topics include current Mayor Tommy Battle, The Historic Huntsville Depot, and picturesque Big Spring Park.
That’s when I got to know a little bit about Dr. Richard Showers. To be frank, that whole city council was a bunch of clowns. Dr. Showers, Glenn Watson, Bill Kling, Sandra Moon and Dick Hyatt were all up against an upstaging and strident Mayor Loretta Spencer. It didn’t matter what was on the meeting’s agenda, you were sure to get an entertaining show of some kind no matter.
