Well, I was speaking more about Spanish Fort/Daphne, LOL.

I was in shock about the Dollar General too. I drove through there several times and saw the construction going on but didn't know what it was, then a friend that lives in Perdido called me and said "OMG you gotta hear this, we're getting a DG" . 'Deeder town' is movin on up, from what I understand it's supposed to have a little grocery store in it.

I figured you were talking about areas more around spanish fort and daphne but that surprised me when they said that. my dad is from perdido and I have been going there my whole life and it will be strange at first to even have a small store like dollar general there. as far as spanish fort and daphne goes I went there last week and I was surprised by how much it has changed over the past few years. I was on google earth today and I looked at a picture of the area in 2003 where bass pro shop is at and it was mostly a wooded area and today it is completely different.

Alabama is big; it can balance rural living and urban/suburban living... When I become the best construction developer and civil engineer, I will think about everything that y'all said, and I will fix it, and I will bring more growth to Alabama that IIIIIIIIIII think it needs and should have!
Oh, ya'll back off excoriating KE. It's great to have a young person who's enthusiastic about Alabama and wants to STAY here and help Alabama improve. We need MORE KEs(AKA A&M Bulldawg) and MORE sedriskells. We need more enthusiasm and excitement for our state. I find theirs refreshing.

Time and experience will damper their enthusiasm quickly enough. Let's hope they have some left when they get older!

Y'all have a good possibility to grow exponentially. Yall got cities like Birmingham, Huntsville, Montgomerrey, and Mobile which are growing at some decent rates. Mobile is connected to New Orleans and Houston is a developing megaregion, and Birmingham is connected to Atlanta and Charlotte in another developing megaregion. Yall need the same thing we need to do alot more of in my area of Charlotte, let go of the brakes and have at it.
