It is good to see the Alabama State Legislature passed a bill making it a hate crime to target policemen.
State Rep. Steve Hurst announced his plan to introduce a constitutional amendment this legislative session to establish a uniform schedule for public school summer breaks statewide. As planned, public schools would operate for Labor Day (the first Monday of September) through Memorial Day (…
MONTGOMERY — The 2020 legislative session, which began last week, will be the second session of Gov. Kay Ivey’s administration. For the second straight year, she and the Legislature will be facing a major obstacle.
Tuesday evening's State of the Union speech given by President Trump spoke to me and millions of Americans with strength, compassion and a message of unity. I am ashamed of the sorority of disgruntled sisters in white who could not find merit in most of our president's presentation. I am mos…
President Trump should be voted out of office. His crassness belittles our highest office and weakens our standing in the world. Here are primary reasons:
Congress has gathered and presented its information to the Senate. The Senate’s job is to now determine if the Congress’s information meets the criteria for Trump to be impeached based on what Congress has presented to them … and nothing else.
The Democrats’ very feeble attempt to impeach Trump in the Senate is the same old Schiff Show they brought over from the Democrat dominated Congress. Still no proof, but plenty of long-winded Democrat speakers screaming for the Senate to impeach Trump based on their dislike of his policies, …
MONTGOMERY — Even though there are more Baptists than Methodists in Alabama, historically Methodists have held more of the prominent political posts in the Heart of Dixie. If you look closely at these leaders’ lives, a good many of our leaders have been sons of Methodist ministers.
The killing of an Iranian terrorist who was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of U.S. servicemen should be a development celebrated by all Americans, but with the Democratic Party determined to destroy the sitting president, that was never going to happen.
Based on a recent report, it appears that the ACLU is more worried about convicted felons than the safety of Alabama communities.
While Iran and the U.S. are both “standing down” from their missile strikes for the moment, how long will this last? Until their next threat or terrorist act? Until they have completely annexed Iraq? Until their next attack on us or our allies?
I appreciated Anthony Cook’s editorial about “Christianity Today’s” failure to cite Scripture in their editorial about Donald Trump (Jan. 2, 2020). And I appreciate Mr. Cook’s statements and the position he has taken. I didn’t vote for Trump either, and I certainly didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.
The National Environmental Policy Act, or NEPA, was signed into law nearly 50 years ago and hasn’t received a significant update since 1986. This legislation was designed to ensure the proper evaluation and protection of the environment before, during and after construction of infrastructure…
MONTGOMERY — Our presidential primary in the Heart of Dixie is less than two months away. We vote on March 3. President Donald Trump will be the GOP nominee. It is a foregone conclusion that Trump will carry Alabama in the November general election.
This is my reply to Anthony Cook’s editorial, "How to pray for President Trump." I do not always agree with the president’s choice of words, however, after having served with several people in the military from New York City, I understand their brazen attitude and bluntness, the tough guy im…
MONTGOMERY — As is my tradition, as the old year comes to a close, I like to pay homage to legendary Alabama leaders who have passed away. We lost some legends in 2019.
You get to know someone well over 16 years. Pete Turnham was the consummate gentleman. I never heard him to say a harsh word about anyone or use any profanity.
The infant mortality rate is the lowest in state history. The rate in 2017 dropped from 7.4 to 7.0 deaths per 1,000 live births in 2018.
Now that the Democrats in Congress have had their fun impeaching Trump with accusations instead of facts, the real fun starts. When the Senate takes up these impeachment "generalizations," it is a different ballgame.
This year’s education scandal saw parents shelling out megabucks to gain college admittance for their children. Federal prosecutors have charged more than 50 people with participating in a scheme to get their children into colleges by cheating on entrance exams or bribing athletic coaches. T…
