Historical Church building gets new life

Eddie and Anginette Arrington, originally of Alabaster, moved to Chilton County a few years ago to get away from the “hustle and bustle” of booming city life. “We love it here,” said Pastor Eddie. “It was getting so crowded in Alabaster. There are subdivisions being built onto subdivisions. They keep adding on. We wanted to move to the countryside. It’s so peaceful here.”

‘Romeo and Juliet’ coming to CCHS

Every American who attends public school has attempted to read a Shakespearean play in English class. It is a rite of passage. We all attempt it, and often we don’t understand what we read.
