Athens, Ala. – This week on The Mark White Show, joining me will be Atlanta, Georgia, native Jeff Foxworthy! A stranger to no one, Jeff is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and best selling author of 26 books. While Jeff is widely known for “You Might Be A Redneck” jokes, “Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?”, and “The American Bible Challenge”, what many don’t know about Jeff is that he spends time with the homeless, teaching Bible study classes and bringing Chick-fil-A biscuits every Tuesday morning to homeless people in Atlanta. Of his work with the homeless, Jeff says, “I think if God loves anything, it’s seeing his broken people restored.” Jeff & I will be talking more about that effort as well as his upcoming show at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama, on February 10th. I hope you’ll make plans to tune in and share this upcoming show with your friends and neighbors!

Birmingham, Ala. – Eric Martin, a registered forester, has been buying and managing timberland for over 35 years. For over 25 years, Southern Timber Resources, Inc. has been purchasing standing timber and helping small timberland owners manage their properties. Services include forest inventories, timber sales, hunting leases, site preparations, and reforestation. The decision to remain primarily active in timber procurement has enabled the company to keep current with an ever changing forest products market. Although we have been key participants in the acquisition of thousands of acres in one purchase, the founding purpose to help small landowners and investors continues to be our focus and niche in the market. The company is based in Birmingham, Alabama and is also located in Little Rock, Arkansas. Having known the Martin family all of my life, I can attest to the trustworthiness and the conscientious individual Eric Martin is. Attention to detail is important to him in his forestry work. If you would like a free appraisal on your timber, you can give Eric a call at (205) 527-6785. Check out Southern Timber Resources website. I’m excited to have Southern Timber Resources as a new sponsor of The Mark White Show. You will be hearing more about them and their work soon! Listen to their new ad below and remember Eric offers free appraisals!
