Prisons a top priority for this session

The 2020 Legislative Session, which began last week, will be the second session of Governor Kay Ivey’s administration. For the second straight year, she and the legislature will be facing a major obstacle. The prison problem is the paramount issue...

 

President's best week of administration

Last week was President Trump’s best since moving into the White House. After giving a well-received State of the Union address, the President was acquitted by the United States Senate, announced the killing of a major terrorist, and received a gre...

It's finally over, but it's not over

After three years of non-stop spurious allegations and continuous compromised investigations of President Trump, reasonable people would expect this tedious turmoil would finally end with Trump’s acquittal on both articles of impeachment. Sadly,...

 

Legislative Session begins this week

The 2020 Legislative Session begins this week. It will be an interesting three and a-half months. There are a myriad of important issues that legislators have to address this year, as always. However, standing in the way of substantive state issues...

 

Fighting to keep the state strong

This week is one for the history books as President Trump gives his State of the Union address only hours before he is acquitted of impeachment in the Senate. There could hardly be a greater contrast between work being done for the American people an...

Impeaching the American voters and the Constitution

Impeach is defined as “to charge with a crime or misdemeanor” or it also means “to cast doubt on.” In the hurried hyper-partisan House Impeachment inquiry against President Trump, the House failed to make any criminal charges or even...

 

Great three-man race to replace Bryne

The first district Congressional race is probably the best race in the state in this year’s March 3rd Primary. The winner of the March 31st GOP Primary runoff will go to Congress. The famous first district is a Republican congressional seat and...

 

Walking the walk in the fight for life

Last week, tens of thousands of Americans took part in our nation’s most important rally for the unborn, the March for Life. I am so proud of the large number of Alabamians who traveled all the way to Washington to participate. Sadly, it is mostly...

 

Do we hear information anymore?

Every morning I wake up and my phone alerts me to CNN’s ‘5 things to start your day’. I usually read through it and make mental notes on things that I find important or pressing. Next, as I...

 

Meth charge for Jay woman

A Jay woman who was a passenger in a truck pulled over last Thursday in Milton for a missing tail light now faces a felony drug charge. Julie Marie Mertens, 27, was riding in a blue Ford pickup...

Citizens tips help police to serve us all

We tip our hat to the Escambia County (Ala.) Sheriff's Office for following up on tips that have led to another sex offender put behind bars. The latest culprit was 32-year old Danny Hayes of Brewton who was charged with two counts of violating the...

 

First district has had great Congressmen

Current First District Congressman Bradley Byrne is leaving his safe congressional seat to take a shot at the U.S. Senate this year. The Mobile First Congressional District has had quite a legacy over the last century. Alabama’s First District has...

Faithful will fight for freedoms

Amid all the impeachment hysteria and angst waiting for Attorney General Barr to expose deeply embedded government corruption, good news is often lost; especially since the main stream media has no interest in any good tidings in the era of Trump....

 

Impeachment is nothing to smile about

For three years now, the American people have been forced to endure the efforts by Democrats and the liberal mainstream media to impeach President Trump and remove him from office in the face of his clear electoral victory in 2016. They have tried...

Impeachment will re-elect Trump

Let the party begin. The U.S. Senate trial kicked off this week on the impeachment of Donald Trump. They should probably turn this into a reality TV show. The only difference would be that the...

Maybe time for Century to consider sell

“The gas has no money” is what Century's CPA Robert Hudson said Tuesday night when asked why the town's natural gas system was three years behind on payments. The question and answer came up as the Century Town Council voted to use about...

With Soleimani dead; the world is safer

You may not have known his name, but the most dangerous man in the Middle East has finally received justice for a lifetime of brutality. Before being taken out by an American airstrike, Iranian General Qasem Soleimani was a Major General in Iran’s...
