The White House is considering issuing a Trump-themed executive order — “Making Federal Buildings Beautiful Again” — that attacks architectural diversity, says columnist Phillip Tutor.
It was almost four decades ago when Netherlands native Martin Van Lonkhuijzen arrived in Muscadine as an exchange student. He enrolled at Cleburne County High School as a senior in 1981.
Remember when online personality quizzes were fun? “Which Disney Princess Are You?” (I’m Jasmine). “What Would Be Your Fate in The Hunger Games?” (I would win! But only because I ran away and hid really well).
Sean Snyder looked tired, and who could blame him? He'd just returned from a world away, fighting wildfires in Australia. He surprised his children while they were out for pizza in Oxford on Wednesday night.
For the Vietnamese people, welcoming in a new year is a cause for celebration that lasts much longer than a champagne toast or a ball drop in Times Square. The holiday of Tet is an extended time of celebration that begins on the day of the first new moon of the year and continues for three d…
Just as there as those of us who watch the Grammys just to see who’s going to get bleeped, or the Oscars to see how low the cleavage can go, or the Golden Globes to see whom Ricky Gervais insults, there are those of us who watch the Super Bowl solely for the commercials.
The easy part is over, four hours of speechifying and listening and making no decisions, no communitywide statements or resolutions, no expected plans for a deannexation referendum.
At least one speaker Tuesday night talked about racism, the effects of segregation and mistrust still embedded in Anniston’s DNA, how those civic sins damage the relationship between residents and public schools. The honesty was devastating.
I’ve known Mandi King for a long time, but I can’t remember exactly how we first became friends. Maybe it was when she took me out to lunch for my 50th birthday. That was in 2007, the same year she teamed up with her friends Bev Roberts and Ann Morgan to host their first Kentucky Derby Party…

It’s the 100th anniversary of the start of Prohibition, and the Prohibition-themed difference between Anniston and every other Calhoun County city is this: Anniston is wedded to booze.
Let’s talk about books. What was your favorite (or least favorite) book of 2019? I began and ended 2019 with my favorite detective, Harry Bosch. In “Dark Sacred Night” and “The Night Fire,” Bosch teamed up with graveyard-shift detective, Renee Ballard, to solve cold cases. In both of these b…
A lot of the time, when people see works by Oxford artist Wade Jenkins, they’ll tell him, “Pretty photos!” He’ll respond, “They’re not photos.”
It’s an east Alabama success story, a still-evolving tale of what can happen, not what’s impossible, in small cities with limited budgets and political hindrances.
Council unrest is Anniston’s norovirus, a constant affliction. It spreads and sickens. Small-town politics are notoriously mean, but they’re different here, and they have been for a generation, at least.
