  USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park near Mobile and the cable television network HBO are teaming up for a tribute to those currently serving in our armed forces, and veterans of all wars. The partnership will create a video tribute campaign, enabling everyone to record a video “thank you” that could become part of a montage to appear on HBO.com. HBO has sponsored a video kiosk on the main deck of the USS Alabama so visitors to the World War II-era ship can record messages of thanks to veterans and active duty troops. From these video tributes a montage will appear on the HBO’s Web site, and will be distributed to the troops. The HBO Pacific Tribute Campaign kiosk at Battleship Park will record a 30-second video message, free of charge. There is also an option to send the video to a s...

  The beaches of Baldwin County’s cities, inlcuding Orange Beach adn Gulf Shores,  will join forces to develop a surfside recycling program. It is estimated that approximately 80 percent of the trash that ends up on the beach could be recycled. The goal is for Gulf Shores and Orange Beach to collect paper, plastic and aluminum and all the other trash from the shoreline. Gulf Shores recently applied for a $300,000 Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) grant to help launch the effort. Through its two-year-old Recycling Fund, the state agency distributes a portion of the revenue generated by collecting $1 for every ton of garbage dumped into Alabama landfills each year. In 2010, ADEM will have $1.5 million to dole out to recycling projects throughout the state. Once the cos...

  Hotels, shopping, dining, water rides, shark tanks and a swim-with-the-dolphins attraction… All of this surely sounds like great fun, and even better it’s located in Gulf Shores, well, maybe… Finally, it looks 144-acre Bama Bayou entertainment complex may get to see the day of its completion. The Bama Bayou entertainment complex is represented by Sam McKerall a Gulf Shores lawyer who has said he is trying to assemble a new group of investors to complete the project. The goal would be to open the doors during next year’s Spring break. The project was originally begun eight years ago when Orange Beach requested proposals for a year-round tourist attraction located on property at the northern landing of the Beach Express toll bridge.  The goals of the project quickly changed with the pas...

  Not only is Gulf Shores and Orange Beach a paradise with beautiful gulf beaches, historic homes and fortresses, championship golf courses and world-class fishing, the Gulf Coast also has amazing resources for birders. Perhaps you may want to see a great blue heron sail across a sunset, or the flight of pelicans in perfect formation. If you answered “yes” to either of these questions then the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail will be your own private paradise. The trail runs along two counties, and contains directional and interpretive signage, offering birding enthusiasts endless opportunities to see the lives of the birds of the Gulf Coast. The Alabama Coastal Birding Trail is arranged in a series of loops, and each loop indicates the best birding spots along the Alabama coast. It takes ...

One of the most credible forecasters of housing value trends has released some very valuable data that bodes well for potential Gulf Shores buyers. According to a recent story in Realty Times, the national PMI index, for the first time in a year it has determined that "overall risk has decreased" in the 384 metropolitan markets. The PMI Index predicts where home values are headed by examining local employment, household income, economic growth and demographic changes.  The PMI Risk index is produced quarterly by the private mortgage insurance organization PMI Group. PMI's risk index was one of the first predictors of the housing crash, so its quarterly findings are considered very credible by mortgage experts.  According to the most recent index released last week, home values are incre...
