Florence,Alabama climate[edit]

Hot, damn hot! Except when it's cold!


I'd like to meet the person who would type in "Florence, Alabama" looking for the article on the city in Italy. Ttownfeen 04:13, August 4, 2005 (UTC)

Move to here because website closed[edit]

Culture & Events[edit]

Florence has numerous parks, and facilities for recreation.

--This was moved here from the article because the website reports it has been closed. --MicahDCochran 02:50, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

-- Florentine is an adjective exclusively used to describe things dealing with Florence, Italy. Florencian is the proper non-Italian adjective.


Removed reference to Sheffield High School, which isn't in Florence. It's in Sheffield. --Nyxxxx 02:40, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Why is there an ad in here for Shoals Christian Scool? Wikipedia is not a Sunday paper.

Fixed SCS advert--keep it factual, people. Wikipedia isn't for ads. Included reference to other christian schools in the area.

Cleanup tag added[edit]

Grammar, tightness of prose, style, tone, citations, etc., etc., etc. I'll work on it if I remember to come back to it. In the meantime, feel free to pitch in and help. --Kbh3rdtalk 15:47, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

I did my part changing an inappropriate "it's" to "its." Let's not look more ignorant than people think we are! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:33, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Why is there mention of "homosexual" activity between two people, named, in this article (in ref to the parks)? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:44, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

world famous tag team champions Reid Ware and Danny Libera?[edit]

I know these people to a certain extent, but have never heard anything about world-class tag-teaming. Is this a joke? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:24, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Media Section[edit]

Why all the upper case in the media section? I scrolled down to the section and its shouting. Looks terrible. --Mjrmtg (talk) 13:31, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Enrollment claim incorrect[edit]

"The University is the largest in north Alabama[citation needed], with an enrollment topping 7,000 for the first time in 2007. " A citation is definitely needed for this claim as a quick wikipedia search shows that the University of Alabama in Huntsville has a larger enrollment than UNA and both both universities are definitely in north Alabama.
