I know there is so much in the national and local news for The Anniston Star to report, but I wonder why a big Alabama story was not in the headlines for a recent Friday paper.

Alabama folks on the lower levels of the Tallapoosa River around Mitchell Lake must be devastated because of the tremendous rise in the level of the lake.

The Star buried this story on the Coffee Break page in the report on lake levels.

A rise of 147.79 feet must be a disaster of tremendous proportions. President 45 would be tweeting, “BIGGEST EVER. SAD!”

Maybe The Star will be able to fit this story in at a later date.
