I have always enjoyed </p><p>history and the history of the church and I love Franklin County, so this was something that I wanted to complete.Kimbroughs research includ-ed looking at church records and each issue of the Franklin County Times from 1890-1970 at the state archives in Montgomery.Kimbrough said his mothers family was from Belgreen and his fathers family was from the Lost Creek area.My heart has always been in Franklin County, he said.The Restoration in Russells </p><p>TSTORY BY </p><p>JONATHAN WILLIS</p><p>PHOTOS BY JONATHAN WILLIS</p><p>An old, old story</p></li><li><p>14 FRANKLIN LIVING</p><p>Earl Kimbrough with Franklin County Archives and Research Center director Chris Ozbirn.</p></li><li><p>15FRANKLIN LIVING</p><p>Valley and Northwest Alabama: 1842-1945 dives into the early history of Franklin County and north-west Alabama and takes a look at the churchs role in trying to curb the immorality of the early settlers, Kimbrough said.The pioneer settlers carved out for themselves a distinctive lifestyle that was self-sufficient, rural and family oriented, Kimbrough wrote to describe his book.Yet, there was widespread violence and rowdi-ness, aided by the liberal consumption of whiskey, which is said to have been almost as common as eating.Kimbrough said the early Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterian preachers tried to curb the immoral-ity and establish churches that offered a degree of spiritual stability. But, he said, their efforts contin-ued to be hindered.He wrote the book to focus on what he called the Restoration movement, which focused on first-cen-tury Christianity. The first Church of Christ member in the area was Dr. Samuel Sevier, who was the son of Tennessees first governor, John Sevier.The first Church of Christ was established in </p><p>Russellville in 1842.Though he has written several other books, Kimbrough said this is the one that was always in his heart.While from the beginning, I thought of it in terms of writing a book, it was a thing I wanted to do for myself, rather than to contribute to the collection of Restoration literature, he said.I knew there was an interesting story involved and I wanted to know it. However, as far as a published book is concerned, I just came back to that.Another Russellville native, Fred Thompson, who now lives near Atlanta, Ga, published the book.I have known Earl most of my life and I was happy to work with him on this book, Thompson said.He was able to gather some remarkable resources and did personal interviews with some key figures as far back as 65 years ago. I think he has really put together something that many people here will be interested in.For information on obtaining a copy of the book, contact Jackie Richardson at 256-483-9314 or Bill Thompson at 256-412-6713 or by visiting the Franklin County Archives and Research Center.</p></li><li><p>16 FRANKLIN LIVING</p><p>SPRY MEMORIAL CHAPELOF RUSSELLVILLE</p><p>906 South Jackson Ave. Russellville</p><p>Caring People, Caring for People</p><p>256-332-1122</p><p></p><p>Creating New JobsPromoting rural economic development.</p><p>Roger Bedford &amp; Assoc.

The specter of breast cancer makes it no surprise that women are eager to seek various ways to reduce their risks of developing this potentially deadly disease.Though cancer treatments continue to evolve, there remains no cure for breast cancer or any other types of cancer. However, there are steps men and women can take to reduce their risks of devel-oping breast cancer. In fact, the National Cancer Institute says avoiding breast cancer risk factors is the best path to prevention. Avoid exposure to radiation. Repeated exposure to radiation therapy used to treat illnesses like Hodgkins disease can increase a persons risk of breast cancer, particularly if treatments begin at an early age. Keep a healthy weight. Obesity increases the risk of breast can-cer, particularly in postmenopausal women. Healthy eating and exercise can help women control their weight while reducing their risks of developing breast cancer and a number of other diseases. Scientists at The Mayo Clinic believe there is a link between estro-gen production in fatty breast tissue and breast cancer. Get your exercise. Exercising four or more hours a week can lower breast cancer risk. Exercise need not be heavy lifting at the gym. Any moderate physical activity, from cycling to walking, can be effective. Exercise decreases hormone levels in the body that can impact breast cancer risk. Some studies indicate simply walking briskly for one to three hours per week can reduce a womans breast cancer risk by 18 percent. Eat a low-fat diet. The Womens Intervention Nutrition Study from the National Cancer Institute found that the highest rate of breast cancer reduction was among a group of women who ate a low-fat diet. Reduce alcohol consumption. Various studies have indicated that </p><p>women who drink alcoholic beverages may develop cancer at a higher rate. Women who consume two to five drinks daily have a greater risk of developing breast cancer than those who abstain from alcohol. Weigh...</p></li></ul>
