After 20 straight days of vacuuming and watching the cat climb the Christmas tree, my mother had reached the end of her rope and said goodbye to real Christmas trees forever.
By Randy Tatano This time of year, the chance of snow on Christmas Day in Alabama is pretty much a long shot. Sure, we’ve had an occasional...
Please, medical professionals, ditch that discomfort word, let us know when things will actually hurt or taste awful, and just be honest about what we’re going to experience.
There are certain days in our lives so significant that we can recall every little detail years later. Images, words and emotions that are burned into our brains. We remember exactly where we were, what we were doing and what we felt when an important event took place.
The solution to voting issues is an easy one: let’s go back to mechanical voting machines.
If I was granted one wish, I’d want a time machine to go back before technology sucked all the fun and quality out of life.
The convoluted language that is supposed to “inform” voters has gone too far.
These days I know I should not be on the road at 8 a.m. or 3 p.m. Because that’s when parents turn into chauffeurs to drop off or pick up their little darlings and turn the local streets into the departure lane at a major airport.

Back in the day (those of us who are “of a certain age” say that a lot), you could fix electronics. If the TV had a problem, you could pull out the tubes, take them to the neighborhood store that had a tube tester, plug in each one, and find the bad one. Then buy a replacement, pop it in, and you’re back in business watching a picture off the rooftop antenna in spectacular black-and-white. Back in the day you could also build electronics.

Gubernatorial candidates Lew Burdette and Lindy Blanchard made a stop in south Alabama this week.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that there is currently a mass exodus from the Northeast to places in the South. While...
