I look to you to report the news, and I think you do this well for our communities. I prefer to see editorial comments on the editorial page, not as news on page one. I was disappointed to see this racial opinion on page one.
The prospects for a better future are nearly hopeless for roughly 20 percent of black people -- those who reside in big-city crime-infested and dysfunctional neighborhoods. There is virtually nothing that can be done about it without a major rebuilding of the black community from within.
In the blink of an eye on that terrible day that will be forever known as 9/11, there were no white lives, nor black lives … but All lives that mattered.
Joe Funderburg is the mayor of Pell City.
Under the Electoral College system, only about 10 to 12 of the 50 states matter in a presidential race. It is almost a one-state presidential election with Florida having inordinate and almost omnipotent power.
Must have the stamina, experience, and will to take on the state’s most pressing challenges, including the shortfall in our general fund, economic growth, tax reform and much, much more. Experience balancing budgets highly preferred. Strong moral character required.
I think the past loyalty and spirit of my personal support for law enforcement is unquestioned. I think the belief in, and defense of, all our liberties, especially our liberties to pray and worship God, is one of the fundamental tenets of the core values of the American democracy.
It is hard for most whites to understand what it is like to be stopped by law enforcement when you are black.

The first woman in the history of this country was named the presidential nominee of a major political party -- a monumental achievement. For younger people, this may be no big deal, but it is a big, big deal. It’s epic.
