Ever since the final whistle of Sunday’s World Cup final, I don’t think I have stopped being in a good mood. Despite the U.S. men’s soccer team losing to Mexico in the Gold Cup final that same night, the feeling of seeing the women’s national team win back-to-back world titles is something t…

Small-town living has its upsides as well as its downfalls. It’s not for everybody; you either love it or you hate it. 

I’ve been working at Tallapoosa Publishers Inc. for more than two years now, as I just hit my two-year anniversary May 22. While it’s been sort of a whirlwind and there have been ups and downs, I love my job and I am thankful to be here.

I’ve been in Alexander City for more than two years and spent two great summers here, but there’s still so much I haven’t done. The life of a sports editor is a busy one; I’m constantly running from one event to another, trying to cover all our area sports as best as possible and attempting …

As the spring sports schedule started winding down, I have to admit I got a little bit excited knowing I was going to have some nights to myself without work for a while. Between baseball, softball and soccer, there was very little time for rest.

Chronic illness is similar to mental illness in it isn’t widely advocated for, it’s something many don’t understand or have much knowledge of and it’s hard to talk about.

We’ve all heard the warnings about social media postings before. Whatever is posted on the internet stays there forever. You can never truly delete something. Those posts can follow you forever.

Even if you missed what happened at Churchill Downs on Saturday, there is no doubt you saw a post on social media about how instant replay was ruining another sports moment. After “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” appeared to be over, there were people in a small video room determini…

Folks, taking care of prisoners is not a popular political issue. However, every so often Alabama politicians pragmatically have to acquiesce to the mandates of federal judges and grant our transgressing citizens their rights as determined by the courts.

In his book “The Fellowship of the Ring,” J.R.R. Tolkien wrote, “The road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the road has gone, and I must follow, if I can, pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet. And wh…

Over the course of my 25 years on this planet, I have had my fair share of encounters with doctors across the state of Alabama. Across 15 surgeries and numerous checkups, it is easy to say several of them have made a lasting impact on my life and my family.

With the passing of spring break, the end of the school year is in sight. Spring assessments are in progress for our third- through eighth-graders, and high school seniors are anxiously looking forward to graduation day.

Everyone from Gov. Kay Ivey to the 1,000 volunteers who quickly mobilized to help have been in awe not only of the power of nature, as seen in Saturday’s tornado that ravaged the city’s west side Saturday afternoon, but of Wetumpka’s recuperative spirit.

You cannot get used to seeing that kind of destruction — trees through windows, roads shut down, horrified looks on everyone’s face. This is not what you want to see in your community.

Every once in a while, an NFL team looks so good after a few games, people begin to look down the schedule to see how long an undefeated season can actually last. We may never see another team run the table in the regular season en route to a Super Bowl title.

The next – and, hopefully, final – legal battle between the City of Wetumpka and Alabama Power, AT&T and Spectrum over the relocation of poles that carry power, cable and telephone service to customers in the city’s historic downtown area will take place in the courtroom of Judge Bill Le…
