Weather forecasters along the Tennessee Valley are warning residents of northern and central Alabama to be on guard for icy roads this morning.
The overall threat of snow and sleet has eased over much of Alabama. But temperatures are expected to hover right around the freezing mark, and in some cases below freezing, as residents recover from a nasty ice storm.
A new book from an assistant professor at the University of Alabama focuses on pollution problems in Anniston in the mid 1990's. The book titled “Baptized in PCBs: Race, Pollution, and Justice in an All-American Town” tells the story of the town’s struggle with PCB contamination. Monsanto had been accused of dumping PCBs in the predominantly black community and people were getting sick. A lawsuit was eventually settled in 2003 with seven hundred million dollars for the plaintiffs and the clean-up. Author Ellen Griffith Spears began interviews over ten years ago.
