Alamuchee Covered bridge

GN 01-60-01 – Alamuchee or Bellamy CB – Built in 1861 – Spans Duck Pond at the University of West Alabama in Livingston, Sumter County – 82 feet long – Town Lattice trusses

This bridge was originally built over the Sucarnoochee River by Confederate Army Captain William Alexander Campbell Jones on the main state road leading from Livingston to York, now U.S. Route 11 just south of Livingston. During the American Civil War, the bridge was used as an access route to Mississippi by Confederate forces led by General Nathan Bedford Forrest. A concrete bridge replaced it in 1924, and the bridge was moved 5 miles south to the old Bellamy-Livingston Road (now CR 13) over Alamuchee Creek. In 1958 it was once again replaced by a concrete bridge. During that time, a logging truck being used to haul timbers from the construction site broke through the floor of the bridge. As a result, the Alamuchee-Bellamy Covered Bridge was permanently closed and left unmaintained. In 1971, the Sumter County Historical Society fully restored the damaged bridge. It was moved from Alamuchee Creek back into Livingston and placed over Duck Pond at the University of West Alabama.

Am amazing story about a muffled explosion and a spare seat……

………What a simple and brilliant idea! I particularly like the ‘spare’ seat announcement!!    It’s hard to beat Israeli technology!

The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners.

It’s an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on your person.

Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling. It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials.

You’re in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion.  Shortly thereafter, an announcement:  “Attention to all standby passengers,   El Al is pleased to announce a seat available on flight 670 to London.  Shalom!”
