Lunetti expects approval of visions

Cross_in_Medjugorje

Although the Roman Catholic Church has not approved her visions as authentic, Marija Pavlovic Lunetti expects that after she’s dead, the Vatican will confirm that the Virgin Mary did appear to her.

Mrs. Lunetti has claimed since 1981 that the mother of Jesus appears to her every day. This week, she has been having her daily visions in the same Shelby County field where she had visions during visits in 1988 and 1999. The field is owned by Caritas of Birmingham, a ministry that promotes the visions that began with six children in Medjugorje, Yugoslavia 20 years ago. Three still claim to have daily visitations from the Virgin Mary.

For the church to give the visions the same rare status as apparitions in Lourdes, France, and Fatima, Portugal, “I need to die, the apparitions need to stop,” Mrs. Lunetti said Thursday.

There is no chance the church will approve the …

Best of the best

SEC_Championship_2009

This season, Florida quarterback Rex Grossman surpassed the stunning passing numbers posted by ex-Gator Danny Wuerffel en route to the 1996 Heisman Trophy.

But Grossman is a sophomore. Wuerffel was a senior. The perception: Grossman is too young to win the Heisman thus he’s the leading candidate to win the 2002 Heisman after missing out on the 2001 trophy last week.

Conversely, LSU’s Nick Saban benefits from a different perception.

Saban’s LSU Tigers were picked to win the SEC West in most preseason polls, but were written off after floundering the first six weeks of the season.

Meanwhile, an Auburn team picked to finish near the bottom of the West under Tommy Tuberville finished as division co-champs.

The perception: Auburn collapsed down the stretch while LSU resurrected itself and finished just where it was expected to finish.

Perception becomes reality. And the reality is that Florida’s Grossman and LSU’s Saban …

Verilink founder owes firm 3M in unusual deal

Josiah_Belden

Verilink Corp., one of the six Huntsville-based publicly-owned companies, lost nearly $4 million and laid off 85 people last quarter. The company has cited the slow telecommunications market and has cut costs to compensate for slow sales.

But with Verilink stock hovering around $1 and a shrinking cash flow, shareholders may question Verilink’s dealings with Leigh Belden, the company’s co-founder and largest stockholder. Belden owes Verilink more than $3 million for loans he received beginning in 1993.

Verilink, which makes telecommunications equipment that increases the speed of data and voice transmissions, moved to Huntsville in late 1999 from San Jose, Calif. The company now has about 125 employees.

According to Verilink filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the company’s board of directors approved three loans to Belden totaling more than $4 million, put off his loan repayments four times and did additional business with a property company Belden …

Beneficial burning

Okefenokee_burn1

A couple of dozen TV and newspaper reporters met Wednesday at the state line to set fire to the woods and watch them burn.

It was a carefully planned and government-sanctioned prescribed burn on 4 acres of the Grand Bay National Wildife Refuge in Jackson County, Miss., and part of a day-long Prescribed Fire Media Academy taught by representatives from several state and federal agencies.

The fire was an uneventful spectacle. While media participants chatted around the perimeter of the burn, the fire crept in thin lines through the tufts of wire grass, briefly exploding in puffs of flame and smoke when it engulfed small shrubs. State and federal firefighters used a combination of exotic vehicles and rakes and shovels to keep the burn within bounds.

Sponsors of the program, which in cluded The Nature Conservancy and agencies in Alabama and Missisippi, said that they hoped to give the media …

When John Nathan Cox was born two years ago, his esophagus did not connect to his tiny stomach, a condition that happens in about one of 5,000 live births.

He was born at Springhill Memorial Hospital but within minutes the baby was rushed to the University of South Alabama Children’s and Women’s Hospital, where Dr. Randall Powell proceeded to perform 12 surgeries over the next four months.

“My dad called all over the country trying to find the best doctors, and everyone said the man who wrote the book on it was right here,” said John Nathan’s father, Allen Cox Jr., owner of Ono Realty in Orange Beach. “I was surprised that it was here at USA.”

The Cox family is surprised no longer. John Nathan is an energetic, healthy 2-year-old with almost no lingering problems related to the birth defect. On Monday, it was Powell’s turn to be surprised, …
