BOB SABLATURA, RECEIVES HUNTSVILLE PATRIOT AWARD
Huntsville Observer editor and publisher, Bob Sablatura, was awarded the periodic Huntsville Patriot Award by WWW.AMERICANPATRIOTS.ORG for his outstanding contribution to bringing journalistic integrity to Huntsville and standing up for The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.
American Patriots founder, George H. Russell, in announcing the award, said, Bob represents the great tradition of honest independent journalism which has long been forgotten in Huntsville by the monopolistic Item, which he believes represents the whims of the oligarchy rather than truth, fairness, objectivity, ethics, and concern for our citizenry.
When the awards committee read Sablaturas December 12, 2001 article, Large retailers move in while small businesses pack up, they immediately knew that they had found the Huntsville citizen most worthy of receiving the current award.
In addition, Bob printed an extremely important patriotic column by Jim Hightower, entitled We are at risk with Bushs military courts. Obviously Sablatura has both guts and integrity, proclaimed American Patriots committee member, Dr. Kenneth L. Russell.
George Russell, who happens to be both editor and publisher of the competing HUNTSVILLE NEWS, said that he recommends Bobs paper as Huntsvilles best source of accurate reporting and hopes that local merchants advertise in The Huntsville Observer.
I welcome the competition from Bob, mused Russell. When there is only one news source in any community in America the citizenry almost always loses. Fair competition is what America is all about, he continued. Bob has exposed what the Item never would, that is the unfair use of tax dollars taken from hometown business and using those tax dollars in an un-American form of corporate socialism to reward outside mega-corporations so that they may more readily destroy our locally owned businesses, Russell added.
Russell recommends an investigation into what personal benefits may be accruing to politicians and bureaucrats who are obsessed with the destruction of the small businesses which built this community. Something doesnt smell right, fumed Russell while pinching his nose with his fingers.

SCHOOL CHILDREN ALMOST HIT BY TRAFFIC
Children who attend the public schools on Highway 190 East come within inches of being maimed or killed on a daily basis. Many of the children walk to and from school and as there are no sidewalks or crossings of the busy five lane highway, the children must run across the lanes and then walk in the traffic lanes in order to arrive at their destinations without having to slosh through mud.
