Hey everyone!

Kevin Pugh here... I've been watching Montgomery develop ever since I arrived here in 1991. It's amazing how much the east side has grown and how downtown has developed... Hope to see more of it...

Hi everyone,

I've lived in Montgomery for 15 years. I'm a horticulturist by trade but love seeing all the new development going on downtown.

Hey, I always read and posted in Montgomery threads. I grew up in Troy, but back then almost everything we needed outside of groceries and the pharmacy, we drove to Montgomery for it. So my family was there at least once a week. Many family members live in Troy, but several of them work in Montgomery. Also being in MGM's TV market I grew up on WSFA or as we always called it "Channel 12" and learned from & was entertained by MGM TV personalities such as Phil Snow, Dan Atkinson, Bob Howell and Marge Payne (bonus points if you know what her function was at WSFA back in the late 70's.)

Anyway, I am happy to see that MGM is waking up from it's long slumber and folks are starting to realize that there are more gems in MGM than those areas on the far east side. I mean is it REALLY MGM when it's out the by-pass? :)

Good idea!

Bobcats forever!

Exactly 1.5 hours to get to MGM. Alot of my family still lives in Opp. They do tend to go to Dothan more now. Sometimes they will venture north to shop. Dothan is just closer. Growing up we would go to both Dothan and MGM.

As far as WSFA doing childrens programming the answer is no they don't. At least not anything like Young World. I loved that show!
