Today was "Science Sunday" at the Alabama Museum of Natural History. The free event invited the community to explore man's use of the collective learning and the journey of tool discovery.

Alabama State Troopers are of course encouraging motorists to continue to be cautious throughout the remainder of this winter weather.
