<DIV><B>Rumors, witchcraft, and murder in this true crime account of one of New Jersey’s most notorious cold cases—from two <I>Weird N.J.</I> magazine contributors.</B><BR />  <BR /> As Springfield residents decorated for Halloween in September 1972, the crime rate in the affluent New Jersey township was at its lowest in years. That mood was shattered when the body of sixteen-year-old Jeannette DePalma was discovered in the woods, allegedly surrounded by strange objects. Some feared witchcraft was to blame, while others believed a serial killer was on the loose. Rumors of a police coverup ran rampant, and the case went unsolved—along with the murders of several other young women.<BR />  <BR /> Including extensive interviews with DePalma’s friends and family, new evidence, and theories about who could have committed this horrible crime, <I>Death on the Devil’s Teeth</I> provides the definitive account of this shocking cold case more that remains a mystery more than four decades later.</DIV>

Cleburne County is strategically located between the two major cities of Birmingham and Atlanta. Once a part of Benton County, Cleburne County was officially created in 1866 by the Alabama legislature and named in honor of Gen. Patrick R. Cleburne, who served the Confederacy during the Civil War. The Talladega National Forest covers the western half of the county and includes Mount Cheaha, the highest point in the state. Cleburne County gained national notoriety in the 1840s when gold was discovered around Arbacoochee, which became one of the largest mining towns in the state. Over $5 million in gold was mined there. In the early 1900s, the area's mild climate and rich soil drew several hundred settlers from northern states who came to Cleburne County and established a wine-producing colony, Fruithurst, which produced as much as 23,000 gallons per year.

 爺っつぁんは、幼い頃から、母親に連れられ、毎月21日になると、弘法さん参りをしてきた。だから、四国遍路をしたい、というのは、母の夢でもあり爺っつぁんの夢でもあった。母の果たせなかった夢を何としても果たしたい。その気持ちはあっても、仕事の忙しさに紛れ、行くことはできなかった。<br /><br /> 66歳になった夏、少しばかりの暇ができたので、遍路行きを決めた。自力での遍路を決めていた爺っつぁんは、歩き遍路をまず考えた。しかし、1日2キロの散歩もままならないほど足が弱かった。しかし、自転車は好きで、ポタリング程度なら、1日30キロ程度は走れる。自転車で走ろう、そう決めるには時間がかからなかった。そして、極力、自力で走破したい、というのが爺っつぁんの希望だった。<br /><br /> 自転車と言っても、全ての行程を自転車で行けるはずがない。自転車で行けないところは、歩くほかない。<br /><br /> 途中、ケーブルにするか迷ったこともあったが、ケーブルに乗ることなく、この初志は貫けた。爺っつぁんのように足の弱いヨタヨタでも、札所88か所、別格札所20か所、他に霊場50か所を回ることができた。一人でも多くの方が、歩き遍路、自転車遍路を実践していただけるよう、この日記を公開することにした。<br /><br />写真252枚と文章の、いわば絵本です。

Founded in 1827 as the county seat of Jackson County, Independence, "Queen City of the Trails," prospered through outfitting pioneers as they began the journey west on the Santa Fe, Oregon, and California Trails. The city persisted through various travails: a bloody war over slavery, fought between the Kansas Jayhawkers and the Missouri Bushwhackers; the rise of William Quantrill; the enforcement of the infamous Order No. 11; and Civil War action on the town square. By 1900, Independence was a prosperous community, the location of the headquarters of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (renamed the Community of Christ), and the hometown of a young man who became the 33rd president of the United States--Harry S. Truman. This book illustrates the history of Independence in more than 200 vintage images, detailing the people, businesses, churches, schools, organizations, and events that played important roles in the city's past.
