Betty Miller recalls childhood in north Alabama

When Betty Jones Miller was a child in Macedonia, four miles from Section in north Alabama, her family always had plenty of food. They either grew it or raised it.

Opinion

Much has happened already this year

As the world turns in Alabama politics, a lot has happened in the first three months of 2015. After Inauguration Day, a federal judge in Mobile ruled Alabama’s constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage was not constitutional under federal law. In appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court it was obvious that the high tribunal conferred with the lower court ruling and gave every indication that they would render a final edict on the subject come June. By midsummer same-sex marriage will be the law of the land as decreed by the omnipotent U.S. Supreme Court.
