Ala. Music Hall of Fame Board Looking for Options

Alabama Music Hall of Fame board members say they're exploring options to help the organization survive.

   Board members told the TimesDaily of Florence (http://bit.ly/16GvmLE) that they're considering four options to support the museum which has been closed since November.

   Organizers say the first option is to combine the attraction with an official state welcome center. The second option is to split the memorabilia and distribute it throughout the state.

   Board members say the third option is to leave the museum in Tuscumbia, and the fourth possibility is to invite proposals from other cities to relocate the museum and hall of fame.

   Organizers say the attraction has struggled financially since the state stopped funding it in 2011, and the museum and hall of fame faces an approximate $120,000 debt.
