To the person who called and said that marijuana was the first drug that anyone tries before they go into the harder drugs, I beg to differ. Tobacco, alcohol and prescription drugs from the home medicine chest are the first drugs most people use on their way to hardcore dependence.

Russellville needs a ban on parking in the front yards. There are more cars in the front yards than there are in the car lots. And another thing, there are too many car lots. They are popping up all over the place. We have to beautify our city and apparently the mayor and his cronies don’t w…

Anyone that is retiring age should think twice about who they vote for. I’m 70 years old and barely making it. Donald Trump wants to cut Medicare and Social Security. I’m too old to work, and I can’t pay my bills like it is. If he’d quit playing golf he might be able to help us, $2 million m…

It’s obvious that the Social Security telephone answering system was put in by the lowest bidder. They need to scrap that and hire one little old lady who knows what she’s doing.

When Barack Obama was president, William Devane had a commercial on Fox News, buy gold. He had ticker tape behind him showing the national debt escalating rapidly, how horrible it was the debt rising and how much it had risen under Obama, and it was a big issue. Sean Hannity talked about it …

Of all the athletes out there that could be good role models for our college students and any student considering coming to UNA, why on earth would they choose someone like Pete Rose as a speaker for a fundraiser? That doesn’t say much for being a role model.

We’ve got every kind of restaurant you can think of in Florence except a Hooters. Come on city council, vote it in this time instead of voting it out.

The Tuscumbia land in the city and the county is just disgusting. There is so much garbage in the roadway, especially after the tornado in Colbert Heights. You pass by and it’s just disgusting. This used to be a clean city, but it’s not anymore.

You can see why Alabama is still 49th or 50th for all the things that matter for the masses. Of all the things our lawmakers could be doing, they are worried about protecting the Confederate monuments in the modern world. The only thing we are leading in is we are third for infant mortality.…

I’d like to see the city of Florence control the homeless on Court Street. It’s really annoying when you go out to eat on Court Street and they are always begging at your window, or hitting your tire with a cane, and then they follow you wanting money, or give you a sad story, especially in …

Alabama needs the lottery. We are surrounded by lottery states. Keep the money in this state with the lottery.

It seems that Gov. Kay Ivey wants the Legislature to put the cart before the horse. Let’s have a vote on the lottery and see what it brings in before we start spending so much money.

There’s a few people who are innocent that will make the right decision. But if they feel guilty about anything, they make the wrong decision. There’s a lot of people who can be guilty and still be very successful by making wrong decisions.

The city of Sheffield is in the works to spend millions of dollars to build Inspiration Landing, which includes building new roads in that part of Sheffield. The streets of Sheffield are some of the worst in this area, and it’s ridiculous that city officials choose to build new roads for som…

Florence, you built this beautiful middle school. It’s a showcase for the city, but the property around it is awful. You need to do something about the trees and brush around the stadium, and make it more pleasing to the eye for those folks coming in from out of town to attend functions at t…
