The 2020 Census has been talked about a lot lately. The U.S. Census is one of the most important things that we can do to help our state. Local, state and federal funding decisions are made with the data that comes from filling out the census.
MONTGOMERY — The GOP contest for who sits in our number two U.S. Senate seat has been delayed until July 14 due to the coronavirus. The winner of the battle between Jeff Sessions and Tommy Tuberville will more than likely be our junior US. senator for six years.
In reference to Mr. Billy Price, "We need experience, not a coach, in Senate." As an avid reader of this newspaper, I, Gary Hayes, have agreed with most of your editorials that you have had published in this paper. Now I have to disagree with you on Tommy Tuberville. This isn't about a coach…

Silly me. I thought that with the passage of Title IX of the Education Amendment Act of 1972, we had settled the question of whether girls deserve a chance to compete and win as high school and college athletes. Feminists fought like warriors to pass the act against gender discrimination, wh…
