Who makes Alabama’s best fried chicken?
That’s what we asked the AL.com audience. We wanted places that you can find only in Alabama, so we excluded restaurant or grocery chains that extended beyond state lines.
So the audience nominated their favorites, then voted on the best places in five regions of the state.
Now, Lauren Sisler and Ike Morgan are visiting the five regional winners, seeing their towns, meeting people and, of course, eating their fried chicken. Each episode of this series takes them to a different place in Alabama — this one at Jackson’s Fried Chicken in Camden.
The log book at Bethel Search and Rescue headquarters reveals a busy start to the year.
1/04/2018 – Report of a man seen walking away from town into the tundra.
1/05/2018 – Report a woman lying on the ground outside of town.
1/06/2018 – Citizen calls to report a woman attempting to walk to Kwethluk, 18 miles away.
It goes on and on, detailing the efforts it took to find them.
There have been more than a dozen calls so far this month. Searches can last more than eight hours. One man was so hypothermic, he had begun removing his clothes.
The notes so far all have one thing in common, alcohol.
“Alcohol has always been available but it’s become more readily available now,” says Mike Riley, president of Bethel Search and Rescue (BSAR).
Bethel voted to allow liquor sales in 2015 for the first time in four decades.
“It’s causing a problem with people consuming alcohol while traveling between Bethel and villages, and that’s when they start having problems,” says Riley.
Bethel Search and Rescue is a volunteer organization. They have about 120 members, but the list of those who can respond quickly is closer to 20. Many of them have families, full-time jobs. The calls for help usually come in the early morning hours.
“We’ve been getting a little frustrated lately because it seems like everyone has been drinking.” says volunteer Perry Barr. “It was almost a nightly basis we were getting these phone calls for people drunk on the trail and our members were getting physically, and emotionally tired.”
Still, when the call for help goes out, volunteers always go.
“Some of them are friends or relatives that turn up missing or go into the water.” says Peter Atchak, former president of BSAR.
Many people in the organization have lost someone close to them.
“I got lost in the tundra for five days, froze some toes, some fingertips, and they brought me home.” Says volunteer Sam Samuelson. “So I’ve been giving back ever since.”
The organization says they have refocused efforts at prevention in recent years. By better marking trails, open water, and rough patches of ice road, they hope to prevent people getting lost.

In the summer of 2010 the Jamestown Rediscovery archaeological crew started to find the massive structural postholes of Jamesown’s first substantial church. The following video documents the excavation process of locating one of these postholes hidden beneath 20th-century soil layers. This is the church where Chief Powhatan’s daughter, Pocahontas, married English colonist John Rolfe.
For our fifth consecutive summer, the St. Mary’s Adult Education Committee invites you to the 2017 “Summer School of Faith” with presenter Charles Craigmile.
Charles Craigmile, business executive and philosopher, will present five talks on this year’s topic, The Theology of Grace: God’s Search for Man. Charles will discuss how theological disputes over what “God’s grace” means for our daily lives have divided Christianity.

The great “Watchers Adventure” began over 7 years ago when L.A. Marzulli and Richard Shaw grew tired of being censored by the secular press and most of the Christian media. Adopting a zero tolerance policy for covering up biblical subjects such as the Nephilim, UFOs, the Shroud of Turin and other bizarre world events, Marzulli and Shaw decided to launch the Watchers Series on DVD, circling the globe in pursuit of the strange and the supernatural. When was the last time you visited a real live UFO ranch where thousands of craft put on an aerial display? Or found yourself inside the graveyards and hidden caves of Peru, gathering up elongated skulls, baby mummies, and the skeletons of the ancient giants? Join Gary and L.A. as they relive some of their most exciting discoveries.
