Does one city need four Taco Bells? Four Taco Bells and we don’t even have 40,000 people in the city of Florence. That’s ridiculous. All you have to do is say, “No, we’re not approving that,” because they are not offering high-paying jobs. Get with it people.

When I lived in Arizona about 30 years ago, my brother-in-law owned 75% of the billboards in Arizona. A billboard coming into town would cost you $1,200 a month, and you had to take it for three years. Around here is different. Real estate, insurance companies and lawyers eat up these billbo…

George Bush Sr. didn’t eliminate Saddam Hussein because he didn’t want to create a vacuum in the Middle East. George Jr. eliminated Saddam, a counterbalance to Iran, creating a vacuum, which was filled in by Iran and ISIS. Building on his mistake, Barack Obama released billions of dollars to…

Donald Trump and Russia started pushing fake news, lies and disinformation. It’s evident he has no respect for our Constitution or democracy. The only thing he is interested in is his own self-interest. If you think he is interested in making America great again by stealing another election,…

I just saw the slogan at the Lawrence County Democratic Party headquarters: “People not politics.” I wonder if this means they are still buying and selling people like they used to.

The attorney general of Alabama doesn’t know this, but it doesn’t matter what the law says about marijuana; politicians change it to say what they want it to. Just like Gov. Kay Ivey. She raised the price of gas 10 cents a gallon because she paid those lawmakers to vote for it. Give them a b…

I think the city of Florence needs to do more for our homeless people. It’s a shame they are living on the street when the city of Florence is spending on non-necessary projects that don’t benefit anyone. Get these people off the street. Build them a nice shelter so they can live in dignity …

Can something be done about the rental properties in Florence that when they clean out the house they dump the television set out in the yard? The city does not pick up TVs; the garbage does not pick them up; the recycling does not pick them up; and the street department does not pick them u…

I applaud Sheriff Rick Singleton for commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department, but to do it dressed like a cowboy is rather comical. John Stetson didn’t start making cowboy hats until 1865. The first Levi jeans were made around 1873, and cowboy boots …

It is time to elect Congressmen and women with integrity and honesty and morals. We need a new Congress. Shame on these people.

Here we go again. The only advice I can give is to take your money out of the stock market and take the penalty. I lost $50,000 because of George Bush’s lie about weapons of mass destruction and they didn’t find any, and we’ve been lied to again.

This is to the man who drives on Rickwood Road and complains about its condition: The city officials don’t have time to work on roads over there; they are too busy fighting the hungry and the homeless.

People who listen to network news would never notice it, but Iran has been at war with us for over 40 years. They have killed hundreds of our people. So don’t feel sorry for them at all.

This is in response to a previous caller who said: “Adolf Hitler once said, ‘If you tell a lie often enough and well enough, people will accept it as the truth.’” Apparently, Donald Trump has been reading Hitler’s playbook.

You can’t help but smile when you realize Alabama will lose one Republican member of its House of Representative delegation. Republicans in Montgomery lament a Democratic state that counts illegals will probably get it, but don’t forget that the Alabama Republican state House and Senate pass…

I think it’s a shame the condition on North Patton Street. That’s the main thoroughfare going to the new hospital and to Florence Boulevard.
