Consolidated Publishing publisher Josephine Ayers remembers the late Dr. Gerald Woodruff, a family friend and pediatrician who worked with Anniston's children for decades, who passed away this week. 

Last week marked 75 years since the bombing of Hiroshima. I hate to admit that I actually remember the moment when I heard President Truman announce the astonishing event on a radio broadcast. I was 2 months short of 5 years old.

No one can legitimately suggest that the names and likenesses of Samuel Noble or C.T. Quintard should be stripped from Anniston’s public spaces, writes Phillip Tutor, but they do illustrate the moving target that is America’s current debate over the removal of public memorials.
