What a novel idea,…. knock down a town. Really,… what good is Sheffield Alabama? The streets run rampant with ramped up Olds Cutlasses or Chevy Impalas, stereos blasting with their 22s shining making drug deals in the street. The place has been irrelevant for as long as I can remember, and I’m old. The old Shoals Hospital was there and the first place I heard of staff infection. Now it houses citizens of Sheffield as Park Place. I wonder if the staff germ is still there. Sheffield has been like a canker sore on the Shoals area for many years. Bulldoze it and start over. There are some nice houses on the bluff. And some nice places scattered here and there. One might think of keeping the Village and Champy’s. But Sheffield as a whole exists, why? What good is it? What do they do there?
I truly believe this area would benefit as one. We are known as the Shoals area. We could be known as just the Shoals. After Sheffield is bulldozed, Florence, Tuscumbia and Muscle Shoals could consolidate. Making the three cities,… The Shoals. It would be a benefit to our area in terms of population and helping our area compete for business. And what do we do with Sheffield? Well after bulldozing it,… with railway and water,… a giant industrial park.
Think I’m crazy? You’re probably right.
