    As the story goes, peasants were starving during the French Revolution; when informed of this, the queen, Marie Antoinette, is said to have flippantly remarked, “Let them eat cake!” One school of thought suggests that’s a longstanding translation error, but it’s likely she never said any suc…

      Dothan school officials got a rude awakening last week when a public hearing was announced to discuss Greater Beulah Baptist Church’s application to the Alabama Charter School Commission to create a charter school, Barnabas School of Leadership.

        Greenwood, Indiana, with about 65,000 residents, is representative of most small- to medium-sized cities across the United States, so when a gunman emerged from the restroom of a shopping mall there with an AR-15-style rifle and murderous intent, his subsequent action reverberated across America.

          How news organizations handle breaking information may vary from one outlet to the next, but a common thread has historically been to err toward accuracy over speed. In other words, it’s more important to get it right than get it first.

            Last week, Alabama officials secured $500 million in bonds to help fund a $1.3 billion prison construction program, and earlier this year, created a controversy by earmarking about $400 million in COVID relief funds to the same prison project.

              Even Alabama inmates who would directly benefit from improvements new prisons would provide can see the problem with Alabama officials using federal COVID relief funds to help pay for the construction project. A group of 66 inmates filed a lawsuit this week against the federal government for…

                They send drugs like Fentanyl. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50-100 times stronger than morphine and has no taste or smell. Fentanyl kills more young people than COVID.

                Over 20 massage therapists sued Deshaun Watson for sexual misconduct. Soon thereafter, Watson announced he’d waive his no-trade clause. When a Harris County Texas grand jury issued a no-bill, emboldened, numerous teams courted Watson, including the Cleveland Browns, who went 0-31 in consecut…
