Tin Shop Tartan - Randolph County Alabama's Own Snarky and Surly Scot Gets All Native

Blogging from the suburbs of the Tin Shop community, Captain Plaid brings Progressivism, and a share of Quixotic angst, to the ridges and hollows of Randolph County, Alabama. Hardly a booster yet rooted here enough to fight, Plaidsters can perhaps find like cause in trying to build local solutions to global concerns. Education, environment, economy, entertainment, engagement ... Trust the Tartan!

Down with Downtown But Don't Thank "Leaders"

Spies report that a decent section of downtown Roanoke on the side of Church Street will be torn down for First Baptist Church to build a "Family Life Center". A new road will allegedly be built through the old Snax Deli. I've been told a few well heeled and connected concerned citizens are prepared to use the courts to insist that Roanoke enforce their own ordinances. We'll see? Peace ... or War!
