Mushroom Village

I covered the launch of a partnership between Bevill State Community College and Mercedes-Benz this morning. It was a big deal for this community. Students who go through the co-op program have an opportunity to train with the Mercedes plant in Vance, Alabama and get jobs that pay more than most Liberal Arts graduates.  It's a big deal for our community. 

After the event, I came home to work at my office here. I had several stories that were on the cusp of being print-worthy so I tapped keys.

Jilda stuck her head in the door and asked if she could interest me in a brisk walk. It was still chilly outside, but the sun was out and a walk sounded good.

On the first lap, Jilda pointed out a photo op that I had missed. It was a mushroom village that appeared overnight. I thought mushroom liked warm wet weather, but apparently, there are some that wear sweaters.


  1. WOW that sounds great for the Community College. I know you are enjoying your job, it seems to come thru as the subjects comes up. Ms Jilda has a good eye also.

  2. A brisk walk was a good idea to break up too much key tapping. I love looking at mushrooms. They are like flower as they come in so many sizes,shapes and colors.

  3. The mushroom village is stunning. Thank you Jilda.

  4. Those Co-op programs are great. Lucky for the young people in your community. Amazing that those tiny mushrooms grows in the cold. Jilda is very observant.
    Stay warm.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. Looks like only tiny mushrooms grow in the cold.
