This is the season, not just for family coming together, but also to help serve others in your time of need.  There are many reasons to serve others, but here’s anothe…

The legendary Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Tip O’Neill, is credited with coining the slogan, “all politics is local.”  He quoted it often and lived it.  

I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving! I've said many times before this is one of my favorite holidays. I love family, food, football and being thankful. It's the perfect celebration. The Iron Bowl is also this weekend and it may very well be the most celebrated day of the y…

Before moving to Tallassee, I taught several years at Zion Chapel School, a rural K-12 unit school in the Coffee County school system.

On Election Day, I got to do some exit polling in a conservative town in a bright red county.  I assure you; the results were great for the GOP.  But the evidence showed me that early voting matters, and it doesn’t just benefit one party.  Both sides should support expanding the freedom to v…

When Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, they probably weren’t thinking about the next election.  But maybe they should have.  Because the long shadow of the former president and the behavior of the rioters, may have helped contribute to a relatively good night for the Democrats.

Governor Kay Ivey’s 2022 reelection victory run has been very impressive.  Some of you may be wondering how quickly I have been able to resolve that she has indeed culminated her victorious run when the General Election was held Tuesday and my column’s published date is Wednesday.  It is sim…

I was doing some land navigation training at Fort Knox, Kentucky, several years ago. That was always one of my favorites things to do. But on that particular day, I broke through some brush and came up on an old cemetery out in the middle of nowhere. There was an old wrought iron fence aroun…

With Auburn’s firing of Bryan Harsin on Monday, Auburn is now faced with hiring another head coach. Harsin only lasted 21 games, and while the Tigers are still paying Malzahn and owe Harsin over $15 million, it seems the school is ready to back up another Brinks truck to pay a new coach.

English writer Alexander Pope published a poem in 1711 called An Essay on Criticism that famously stated "To err is human; to forgive, divine." That line has been endlessly quoted ever since because it is a fundamental truth of human existence. We all make mistakes. Some of us make more than…

The United States got some fortunate news about the economy as the recession of 2022.  But how strong is the overall economic picture?  How bad is inflation compared to other countries?  What’s to blame for it?  And what might the coming years look like for our businesses?

This 2022 Election Year in Alabama has been monumental and memorable.  Any gubernatorial year is big in the state.  It is the brass ring of Alabama politics to be governor.  However, the race to succeed our Senior Senator Richard Shelby has been the marquee contest.  This year will be the la…

This past week President Biden went to the podium once again and attempted to justify his efforts to grow the welfare state with his plan to pay off student loans. Current estimates put the price tag for his student loan bailout at over $400 billion. He justifies the massive expense because …

The other day, I read a mailing which claims that President Joe Biden (and Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock) have created a “Wide Open Border” with Mexico.  Having lived on the border for years, I wondered if this was true.  To test whether it is the case or not, I examine facts and analysis.…
