MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Power's comical birds, Ben and
Mickey, are flying south for the winter and never coming back.
Alabama Power is dropping the two birds from its advertising at
the urging of the state's utility regulatory board.
Company spokesman Michael Sznajderman says Alabama Power is
replacing Ben and Mickey with company employees talking about
energy efficiency and conservation.
