We have news items here related to Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Mal Moore remembered for dedication, charm - TUSCALOOSA | Less than a month ago, Tommy Brooker walked past Mal Moore in Buddy's Rib & Steak in Northport and didn't spot his old teammate until he got close enough to recognize that familiar face. “He had his hat pulled down low and he was dressed down,” Brooker said. “I stopped and said, ‘You trying to go incognito?' He chuckled and said, ‘Yeah.' “I ate breakfast with my wife there this morning. It's hard to believe I won't see him there anymore.” There are many more stories just like that told by former teammates, players and employees of Moore, who died Saturday at the age of 73. They are stories that reveal a gentleness and charm. Those close with Moore knew he was always quick with a joke, too. After Moore retired from coaching, then-Alabama Athletics Director Hootie Ingram brought him aboard as an associate athletic director. “Mal had a great sense of humor,” Ingram said. “He was one of the best at telling Coach (Paul) Bryant stories I've ever heard. “He always told one about preparing all week to run a reverse. They'd worked on it all week. During the game Coach Bryant walks by Mal and says, ‘What about the reverse, Mal?' He came back a little while later and said ‘What about the reverse?' Finally Coach Bryant said ‘I want you to run the reverse.' They ran the reverse and lost nine yards, and Coach Bryant said, ‘You ran it the wrong way.' “Mal was really good at telling that story.” The stories vary but the constant is the way Moore treated others. Friends called him kind-hearted. “A great man. A great Alabama man,” former UA coach Ray Perkins said. “I don't know if I have enough words to adequately describe how I feel about him. He was loyal. He loved the school, and he loved the people. I think his essence will be felt for a long time. “He's always treated me with dignity and respect that was unparalleled. We had a strong bond. People like Mal don't come down the pike every day. He's done so much for that university. He's a true legend in my book. I loved him. I miss him, and we'll all miss him.” Moore had a reputation for being a gentleman. Those closest to him say it was genuine. “Mal was an even-tempered guy,” Ingram said. “He was a true Southern gentleman. He was raised that way. There was nothing fake about it. He was truly sincere. That's what made him such a special guy. He didn't have a big ego and didn't put on any kind of show. He was just Mal.” Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney played at Alabama as a receiver under Moore and got his coaching start as a graduate assistant while Moore was coaching UA's offense. “It took the wind out of my sails,” Swinney said of the news. “He was a great man and it's a great loss for Alabama and a great loss for all of us.” Woody McCorvey coached alongside Moore at Alabama on Gene Stallings' staff, and later became UA's offensive coordinator after Moore retired from coaching to take care of his wife, Charlotte, who was suffering from Alzheimer's disease. “It's sad for me because not only a colleague, but Mal was a friend,” McCorvey said. “When I came to Alabama, Mal was the guy who picked me up at the airport in Birmingham and he and I stopped at the Bright Star in Bessemer. That was one of his favorite spots. That tells you how far we go back at Alabama. He was Alabama through and through until the day he left us. “We were close with him being the offensive coordinator and coaching the quarterbacks and me coaching the wide receivers and tight ends, so we worked together a lot in the passing game. Even after he got out (of coaching), we stayed close. He was my sounding board when I took the (offensive coordinator) position, and he was really supportive of me.” McCorvey also had high praise for Moore as a man. “I never heard Mal say a bad word about anybody,” McCorvey said. “It showed when Charlotte was sick, how he stuck by her and took care of her. He didn't want somebody else to do it, he wanted to do it himself. When you think about people getting married and taking their wedding vows, you can think about Mal Moore.” Robert Higginbotham played at Alabama from 1969-71 before embarking on a career as one of the most successful high school coaches in state history. Moore was his position coach for a season. “He was all about attention to detail,” Higginbotham said. “He really expected a lot out of his players. He was a guy that really pushed you hard and taught you how to play the position. “The thing I liked the most about Mal is I could go back down there and even with all the players that he coached over the years you'd think he'd forget your name. It wasn't like that with Coach Moore. I'd see him and he'd say, ‘Hey Robert' and just made me feel at home. I always really appreciated that. Even when he got to be athletic director he made me feel at home.” Friends of Moore are quick to point out everything he did for the university, things well documented in his 13 years as athletic director. They also tell of things he did away from the spotlight. “There are so many things he helped with that went unnoticed,” Brooker said. “He did things people will never know about. “Today is a sad day.” Executive Sports Editor Tommy Deas contributed to this report.

Northport may 4-lane Mitt Lary Road - NORTHPORT | The traffic on Mitt Lary Road often backs up, especially during rush hour in the mornings and in the late afternoon when school lets out. But city leaders are hoping to change that and prepare for future growth in the area by possibly expanding the road to three or four lanes in the near future. The City Council appointed the engineering firm Walker & Associates to do engineering work on the possible expansion of the road, to determine the cost and general design of the project. There is no estimate on what it might cost to complete. While Northport would seek grant assistance, it is prepared to move forward and fully fund the project on its own if needed, City Administrator Scott Collins said. “We know that the Mitt Lary Road corridor is our largest area of projected growth, and we are trying to be proactive to make sure that growth is successful,” Collins said. “Right now, the ideal (expansion) would be a minimum of three lanes, or four lanes if it was feasible.” Widening Mitt Lary could prove difficult on the western end, where there are a large number of homes not far off the road, Collins said. The city wants to use as little private property as possible for the project, but the road has to be improved, said Councilman Steve Acker, who represents the area. “I would personally love to see a four-lane, but we'll have to have the engineers look at it,” Acker said. “I don't know how much room we'll have, and our intent is not on taking anyone's home. That's not what it's about.” But it's also important that the road is widened before further development occurs off Mitt Lary, especially on the eastern end near Alabama Highway 69, Acker said. “We are trying to get ahead of the game, with a little forward thinking,” Acker added. “For the residents in the area, it's an inconvenience. However, for our community and the city of Northport, we want to grow in that area and want to make that growth successful,” Collins said. The 2-mile road that links Alabama Highway 69 to U.S. Highway 43 is now two lanes. In the morning, traffic is backed up from parents trying to get their children to Northport Elementary or to Tuscaloosa County High, and also from people who live in the area who are trying to get to work in Tuscaloosa, said Traci Ferguson, who lives in Huntington Gardens off Mitt Lary Road. Ferguson said it sometimes takes 20 minutes to drive less than two miles to take her daughter to school in the mornings. “I think (widening Mitt Lary) is a good idea because that road is really congested,” Ferguson said. “I think it would also help decrease the wrecks. I know there was one there on Mitt Lary last week.” Amber Capell lives in Huntington Place and also said it was a good idea. “I used to use that road a lot, and the traffic in that area is very congested,” Capell said. “If I leave for work too early, I get stopped by the elementary buses, and if I leave too late, I get caught up in the traffic going to county high. That area is growing.” But not all residents want the road to be expanded or for more homes and businesses to be brought to the area. While it would be nice to have a gas station or more retail close by, the area is nice because it's relatively quiet, said Tracy Reynolds, who lives in the Belle Meade subdivision near the corner of Alabama 69 and Mitt Lary. “We like how quiet it is, and it's one reason we decided to move here, because it feels like you are living out in the country when you aren't,” Reynolds said. It should take engineers about six months to draw up a general design and give an estimated construction cost to the city of Northport. The council will then decide whether or not to move forward with the project. 19720
