On this day:


Speaking of Milo's, today's Huntsville Times had a story on the restaurant and its famous sweet tea.
If sweet tea is the drink of the South, then Milo's is the sweet tea of Alabama. And the popularity of Milo's is quickly spreading across the Southeast. Jay Evers, vice president and chief executive officer of Milo's Tea Co., says the tea was first brewed at a renowned Birmingham hamburger joint, Milo's Restaurant, owned by the late Milo Carlton...

"The tea was something they were proud of, a tried and true recipe," Evers said. "A lot of people thought they were crazy." But the public has been drinking Milo's tea as fast as the company can make and distribute it, not just in Alabama but in Mississippi, Tennessee and parts of Florida and Georgia.
