Robert Edington. While a State Representative he wrote the bill that established the University of South Alabama, Mobile Historic Development Commission and Battleship Park. He has served on over 20 boards. He served as an attorney for more than 60 years. He was responsible for the ships coming during every Mardi Gras. He has been Mobilian of the Year and Veteran of the Year.
Henry deTonti……Old Mobile’s ambassador to native tribes, Circa 1703-1705. “Bra de Fer” (Iron Hand) was LaSalle’s chief officer before joining the Bienville brothers in tne founding of Mobile. The trading agreements he negotiated literally insured the early survival of the colony. He died of yellow fever in 1705.
I have reenacted deTonti at Mobile historic events for 15 years.
LeMoyne Brothers! Bienville was the middle bother of three involved in the founding of our Mobile. Note: Never construct emails before your morning coffee!

Great job !
There are a lot of Buildings here in Mobile Alabama that needs be spruced up . Older Buildings that needs to be put back in to use . Homeless work training shelters would catch 2 fish with a single hook . That in itself is a multiple bonus for everyone that lives in the Mobile County area . Even the least able people can become a benefit to themselves again , and to our entire family community as a whole .
City revenues would be increased dramatically in short order , and in the long term we all would gain a much preferred good name .
Please consider this , every time you get together ? A strong foundation starts with compassion , and builds by faithfulness .
