Phillip Tutor: Alabama's poor need Ivey, Maddox

Between now and November, Kay Ivey and Walt Maddox will criss-cross Alabama, boring us with speeches, attending rallies and acquiescing to interviews. They’ll make promises, sincere or not. Maddox will rail on Ivey’s leadership as replacement governor. Ivey will label Maddox as a Democratic liberal. They may even debate each other, if pigs learn to fly.

They won’t talk much, if at all, about poverty.

Due to come down

A structure on Elm Street in Anniston is due to be demolished as part of a city campaign to remove blighted and/or dangerous structures.
