Amanos windows will be draped with the Tickings’ playful art beginning September 8th.  The children’s art is filled with joyous imagery that only children can produce.

The Tickings are empowered by art. 
They are tomorrows heroes.

All ages welcome.
Painting with house paint, so please wear paint clothes!

Election Results! Run-off on October 5th

Mountain Brook returns incumbents, prepares for runoff

Published: Tuesday, August 24, 2010, 10:05 PM     Updated: Tuesday, August 24, 2010, 10:14 PM
Mountain Brook's two incumbents fought off challenges to win re-election Tuesday, while two newcomers will face off in an Oct. 5 runoff.

Billy Pritchard in Place Three, and Jesse Vogtle in Place Five, were returned to office, with Vogtle avoiding a runoff in a three-candidate race.
In Place One, Temple Tutwiler, president of Tutwiler Properties, will face Amy Carter, a homemaker with a legal background.  Tutwiler, who took 42 percent of the vote, said he was delighted with the support he received.  "I'm looking forward to the race going on," he said. "It's been a great experience."
Carter received 36 percent of the vote, while former city attorney Frank Galloway received 22 percent. Attempts to reach Carter for comment were unsuccessful.

Vogtle, who was elected to the council in 2006, won Place Five with 52 percent of the vote, to 46 percent for architect Rick Sprague. Mark Roberts, owner of commodities brokerage, garnered a little less than 2 percent.  Vogtle said he was pleased to be returning to the council.  "It was a hard-fought battle, and I appreciate Rick's taking the high road on everything," Vogtle said. "I feel like the people had all the facts before them and made a choice. I'm happy the people voted me back into office because I enjoy serving the people and everything that goes with being a city councilman. It's been an interesting month."

In Place Three, Pritchard won with 52 percent of the vote, compared to 48 percent for homemaker Cornelia LaRussa. Pritchard, who has served on the council since 2000, said he expected a close race and this was the toughest of the three he has faced.  "I think it was a great day for the future of the city of Mountain Brook," Pritchard said.

Council members in Mountain Brook represent at-large districts. In 2004 the city began staggering its council terms to avoid having all seats open in one election. The previous two elections featured only one contested race each time, which made this year's field of eight candidates for three seats unusual.

City officials said turnout was also slightly higher than in 2008. Bill Irons, a poll inspector, said voting throughout the day at St. Luke's Episcopal Church was "spirited."

16 high school students in first Leadership Mountain Brook program

16 high school students in first Leadership Mountain Brook program

Published: Thursday, August 26, 2010, 1:47 PM     Updated: Thursday, August 26, 2010, 2:11 PM
A group of 16 Mountain Brook High School juniors and seniors are learning the basics of leadership this school year.The group participated in a scavanger hunt around Crestline Village in Mountain Brook, Al.,Thur., Aug. 19, 2010. This group got points for jumping in front of Oak Street Garden Shop. (The Birmingham News/Bernard Troncale)

The beginning of "Leadership Mountain Brook" coincided with the first day of school, as the 11th and 12th graders taking part went through an orientation session at the city's board of education office. By week's end, the group had participated in a scavenger hunt around Crestline Village and served as judges at Dawg Daze.

Margaret Clark, the high school's cooperative education counselor, said "Leadership" will provide the students with an in-depth look at how the city operates on a day-to-day basis. In the process, the students will learn how professionals in the public and private sectors use certain talents and job skills, such as proficiency with technology or interpersonal relations.

While the daily operations of a city may not seem like attention-grabbing stuff for a group of teenagers, the program will also involve students in building teams for tasks, such as helping to promote events for the city and its business community. Over the school year, the students also will work with individual city departments on certain projects. Participants will not only examine large issues, such as how the city's yearly budget comes together, but also smaller ones, such as how the Emmet O'Neal Library each day processes incoming and outgoing books.

What organizers hope is that students will bring fresh perspectives to how the city functions, and learn a little about themselves. "We'd like to see them come up with their own projects," Clark said. "They'll have a chance to see what it takes to improve the city, and hopefully develop their own leadership styles."  Students were recommended for the program and had to write an essay on leadership to be chosen. To take part, students will have to leave campus to participate in the program, for which they will receive classroom credit.

For the first day, students got talks from Mountain Brook Mayor Terry Oden and Superintendent Dicky Barlow.   "I hope you go into it with all the gusto you've got," Barlow told them. "You'll find that you learn a lot by asking questions, and listening."

Mountain Brook High School Principal Vic Wilson said part of the challenge in preparing students to become leaders is the often rapid changes wrought by technology. "We're preparing them for jobs that don't even exist now," he said. "While you can't prepare for everything, what is not going to change is the importance of relationships."

Tara Creeden, a junior, said she was recommended for the group by a teacher.
"I love it," she said. "It's a great opportunity. Even though we're learning specifically about how the city operates, the same principles can be applied to any everyday leadership position"

Great article in Birmingham News about Emmet O'Neal Library's Summer Reading program!

Mountain Brook library's garden grows, thanks to summer readers

Published: Wednesday, August 18, 2010, 9:50 AM

Mountain Brook's Emmet O'Neal Library this year watched its summer reading program grow -- literally -- before the city's eyes.

Readers, from preschool to teenagers, participated in the library's inaugural garden, which took shape across the street from the library. The garden was a joint venture between the library and the Oak Street Garden Shop and coincided with the summer reading program.

Children's Librarian Carol Melton said 2,150 children signed up for the summer reading program. Though there is no tally for how many readers and would-be farmers participated in the garden, groups of children took part in helping water and cultivate the crops of squash, beans, tomatoes and zucchini.
"We had groups that worked on Tuesday and Saturday mornings before story time," Melton said. "The teens worked on Friday. We had some who loved going to work over there after chess club on Wednesdays."

Each summer, the library sponsors a reading program to encourage children to continue reading while out of school. Oak Street Garden Shop first proposed the idea of a garden for the library's young readers earlier this year, library officials said. The garden shop provided seeds, tools, some labor and instruction, and helped maintain the 1,000-foot plot of land.

A picket fence was also added to make the garden aesthetically pleasing to those passing through Crestline Village. Leftover produce is being donated to Magic City Harvest, a Birmingham nonprofit organization that distributes food to the needy.

"We've had so many positive comments from patrons," Melton said. "Anytime, you're liable to see someone out there browsing through it, even if they're just out walking in the neighborhood."
The garden shop will continue to maintain the garden through the fall. Melton said the library is looking into organizing a Halloween-themed event which might involve a pumpkin patch.
