AP Collage Alabama News
Randy Tatano: Politicians off-camera

As someone who has met and interviewed dozens of politicians in my career, I’m often asked what these people are really like. It’s not too often you get a peek behind the curtain, as many are always in campaign mode.

Sean of the South: Cheaha

Today, I am no longer the little boy whose father died by suicide. I am a man now. A man whose life ambition is to help others who have fallen.

Justin Bogie: Excuses are easy — Meaningful policy change takes bold leadership

KCarl Smith: Our rights rest in three boxes

Before and during the U.S. Civil War, Frederick Douglass was known as the leading voice in our country for abolishing slavery and for recognizing the God-given rights of black Americans.

Cancel culture wwwp blogspot com Alabama News
Stephanie Holden Smith: Freedom in crisis

It is now the unfortunate (inconvenient?) truth that cancel culture is the standard in American society today. What began as an easily ignored annoyance widely known as political correctness has mushroomed into a full scale attack on individual freedom. Punishing people professionally and/or socially for their sincerely held personal or religious beliefs is completely antithetical in a country built upon the foundational cornerstones of freedom of thought and freedom of speech.

Almond milk Alabama News
Phil Williams: Be wary when government knows best

My wife and I have been married for almost 36 years! To this day she is still my best sounding board, and a lot of what happens on Rightside Radio comes from her input as well. We agree on most everything. Except one thing: she likes so-called Almond Milk and I just find that to be repulsive.

Ashley Carter: The watch

I am often questioned about the vintage watch that is always worn on my right wrist. Some are intrigued by the way it looks. It does seem to have a sense of sweet, dainty Southern charm to it. I love it for all of those reasons as well, but that is not my reason for wearing it every day.
