    A state lawmaker in Georgia who was fined by the state’s election board for campaigning too close to a polling place argues that he’s being held to a law that wasn’t in existence when he allegedly broke it. However, there’s nothing new about his passive-aggressive action; it’s been a well-kn…

      Former Congressman Mo Brooks may be bitter after losing a bid for U.S. Senate after spending 12 years representing Alabama’s 5th Congressional District in the U.S. House. He may also have a well-developed sense of fair play, despite his role in ginning up insurrectionist discord prior to the…

        With an executive order this week, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey changed the rules of a correctional incentive time program for the small percentage of state prisoners who qualify.

          A week has passed since Alabama’s new permitless carry law went into effect at the new year. Despite the widespread there appears to have been no significant outward change.

            The Republican majority’s struggle to elect a speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives this week is an embarrassment that could have been avoided had the party used the two months since winning the House majority in November to line up behind a potential speaker as the heir apparent.

              As we move into 2023, many will view the coming months with trepidation. The last several years have delivered the unexpected: a nagging and evolving respiratory virus; lingering inflation; rising prices and stagnant wages; and a general pandemic of irritability.

                Last week, utility companies across Alabama issued advisories to help residents prepare for exceptionally low temperatures, particularly with suggestions to prevent water pipes from freezing, leading to inconveniences from lack of water to burst pipes.

                Collegiate sports aside, Alabama trails the nation in many categories and, judging by elected officials’ lack of interest to address those deficiencies, our state’s poor ranking is OK with them. However, the impetus behind the state’s broadband initiative shows that great things can be accom…

                Alabama’s corrections system tragedy of errors took a new turn last week, as a long-planned early release of 369 prisoners met resistance from Attorney General Steve Marshall on what should have been an obvious point – the notification of victims of the crimes many of the inmates are serving…

                From a sociological perspective, the schoolhouse has long provided students with a sense of outrage over rules they deem beyond the pale. People of every generation, long removed from their own school days, can vividly remember rule monitors who might have pulled them aside because of seemin…

                When a person dies at the hands of police anywhere in America, several things happen. People tend to remember the names of the dead. Often the victim seems to be canonized, sometimes questionably, by a grieving public that demands a figurehead for protest. For instance, no one claimed George…

                Derek Chauvin pressed his knee into George Floyd’s neck for over eight minutes. Floyd wailed, pleaded for Chauvin to remove his knee, bystanders screamed, "Let him up," as three other Minneapolis police officers aided and abetted Chauvin’s death.

                Hunter Biden asked a judge to lower his child support for four-year-old Navy Joan Roberts because of decreased income. Apparently he isn’t raking in the customary millions of dollars for the Bidens from Ukraine, China, and Russia.

                Most would agree that the best decision-making process involves collecting as much factual information as possible, weighing the options, and then deciding which option is best for the situation.
