This commentary on Frank Stitt's Southern Table is the first in this spot about a cookbook. But this book is in fact more than just recipes; there's a good deal of text here, about Frank Stitt's life, his father and mother, education, and philosophy and about Southern food and farming.

Dothan, AL – The Dothan city school board has decided students must have written permission from a doctor before they can consume cough drops at school. The system passed a policy this week that requires the doctors' notes, and students are NOT allowed to take the cough drops themselves even with a note. Violators can be suspended or sent to alternative school. Dothan city school officials say the changes fall under a new medication policy required by the state.
Montgomery, AL – The State Board of Education is proposing a nearly three-point-seven billion dollar budget for the next fiscal year. That's about about 250 million dollars more than the current budget. State Superintendent Joe Morton has said this budget could improve each school in this state. The board's budget proposal asks the governor to request money from the Legislature to hire 676 additional teachers, assistant principals, counselors and librarians.
