On Monday, I had a chance to learn a bit more about Fort Rucker and its history.

As I’ve said before, I come from an area and a background with little military influence. Living here in an area surrounded by the Army, I am always learning something I never knew before.

Think “human trafficking” and some sort of third world country comes to mind.

We tend to visualize creepy men with faces hidden grabbing victims and shoving them into the back of get-away cars.

Dream big. Work hard. Follow your dreams.

Those sometimes cliché words of wisdom are being imparted to thousands donning mortarboard caps and matching graduation gowns this month. It is very good advice.

How long has it been since you’ve sat down with your family on a Sunday and had a nice dinner?

I mean a dinner where you just talked, joked, laughed and there were no electronics involved.

Words like transparency, serial meetings, executive sessions, and others are jargon journalists who have ever covered a meeting of a governing body of any kind have heard over and over again.

The Lenten season will soon be upon us.

Lent, as you well know, is that 40-day period where you constantly hear about what people have given up. It starts on Ash Wednesday and ends before Easter Sunday.

So far, this winter hasn’t been crazy wintry. Not to me, at least.

I’ve enjoyed the cold snaps. It means I can wear cuter clothes.

The 2018 year was one that ended up being way more exciting than I had ever anticipated.

I started the year as a senior at Troy University but I’m ending it as a full time employee in my degree field in a great community that’s been super receptive.

I’ve got a confession to make, I just haven’t really been able to get into the Christmas spirit yet.

I would like to start by thanking you for holding an open forum to discuss raising the Business License tax. As often happens, we may speak at such an event and then wished we had said other things afterwards. This is my attempt to address some of the afterthoughts.

Sadly, traffic on County Road 702 has returned to the normal no-speed-control, go-as-fast-as-you-please pace – 60 mph to 80 mph – with the knowledge that there will be no consequences from any of the three law enforcement agencies charged with controlling traffic on that road.

November is a special time of year.

It’s like a much less expensive Christmas since people always seem to think the two are the same. Yes, I see you people already playing Christmas music and putting up decorations.
