ALICEVILLE'S CLAIM TO FAME "Probably Walter Jones," says Jones. "I finally got a key to the city [on June 23]. It was a great accomplishment. Also, for a couple of years [2004-06] they had up a billboard of me." The billboard featured a picture of the 6'5", 315-pound Jones and said, he grew up in aliceville and boy, did he grow up!
HOW TO PASS THE TIME "Oh, man. It's a really small town and very family-oriented. It's a town where, if you see people outside having a good time, you can just walk up and enjoy them. There's really not a lot to do other than hang with your friends."
LOCAL EATERY Adam's Wings-now called Calvin's (right), after an ownership change in 2003-"It's a little wing joint, and the wings were just good. Everyone in town loves them."
