We're celebrating the letter G over at ABC Wednesday
as Selma hotels and motels GET ready for GUESTS
this weekend due to the annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee.
We hear that the vice president is coming, and if so,
then the national news media can't be far behind!
So, let's hope they don't GARBLE the truth about our town!
Back in 2000, when President Bill Clinton came for the 35th anniversary,
I read one article from an out-of-state writer who complained
that Selma's storefronts looked out of date...as if they
were from the previous century! Well, they ARE from the previous century,
and merchants worked hard back in the 1980s to remove
unattractive modern metal facades and return the buildings to their
original, architecturally beautiful appearances.
