Author Tom Cherones will be giving a short reading, answering questions, and signing copies of his new book at Kamama Gallery in Mentone, Ala., on Saturday, March 30, from 2-3:30 p.m. 

Mr. Cherones is best known as an award-winning TV director and producer. His hallmark as a director and producer was working on the first five seasons of the "Seinfeld" comedy series, for which he received an Emmy, Golden Globe, Peabody and a Director's Guild of America Award.

In his first published novel, "The Mystery of the Golden Goblet, A Hardly Boys Adventure" he has conjured up a simpler era, a modern take on the old Hardy Boys series, which evokes a time when male heroes were idealist, courageous and part of close knit families. Three 1950's era chums awaken after being "geriatrically" frozen for 50 years and find themselves healthy 70 year-olds ready to finish high school and solve crime with their dad.

Mr. Cherones grew up in the 50's in Tuscaloosa, Ala. With his wife Carol Richards, he divides his time between Florence, Or., Taos, N.M. and Los Angeles, Ca. His daughter Susan Cherones is a Mentone resident and the editor of "The Groundhog" publication.

The Facts About Jail

Since Roy had such a positive reaction to Jeffrey Cross's wonderful (and wonderfully civil--how refreshing) email response to his column on the bike lanes, allow me to speak on the subject of the jail.  First off, Roy's right about some things:  It is overcrowded, underfunded, and understaffed.  This is no secret, it's in the Grand Jury report every term.  Here's ...
