No cheeseburgers in paradise | September 30, 2014

Jimmy Buffet wrote his popular song, Cheeseburger in Paradise, about the pleasure of a wonderful cheeseburger. There are disagreements about whether Jimmy’s famous cheeseburger originated at Pirate’s Cove Marina in Josephine, Ala., or Cabbage Key, Fla. Maybe he was writing about both since there is no shortage of great cheeseburgers.
Many of us appreciate a great cheeseburger. I have wonderful college memories of double cheeseburgers at the Smokehouse Pool Room in downtown Florence, Ala., (the best I have ever had — even better than those at Pirate’s Cove). Maybe you, too, had a memorable cheeseburger in your past. Sadly, our children and grandchildren may be deprived of fond cheeseburger memories if certain people have their way.

PowerSouth Prepares For Hurricane Season

Hurricane season begins June 1, and as always, safety is PowerSouth’s highest priority. Forecasters predict an “active” Atlantic hurricane season for 2014, emphasizing the importance of being prepared in case a storm hits.

Factors including higher-than-normal temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean where most tropical storms form indicate this season we will possibly see an increase in tropical activity.
