Small Town Aims High

The small town of Pennington, Ala., could get a hotel. Mayor Jack Findley says it could result from upcoming improvements with the town's sewage system.

This week, the town was awarded the final funds needed for the project. The $110,000 federal grant was awarded by the delta regional authority. Upgrades to the sewage system are expected to take about two years.

Once completed, Findley says some investors have expressed interest in opening a hotel in the town.
