Don’t have vision plan? You don’t need one

By Zack Steele I hear from people all the time that say they can’t afford to go to the eye doctor because they do not have ‘vision’ insurance. I also hear just as often that a patient can’t see the doctor he or she wants to see because that doctor does not take a specific vision plan.

By Scott Buttram TRUSSVILLE -- On Feb. 25, Trussville gets a second bite at the apple. A second chance to right a wrong.

Letter to the Editor: Reader supports property tax for schools

Dear Editor, This debate is about timing, not necessity. We need new schools. We will pay for them sooner or later. A walk around Paine Primary will prove it.

Now, this year, they are trying to increase our property taxes again.   I understand kids do not need to be in trailers, but maybe the city and school ...

By Robert Wilkerson “In God. . . I trust; I will not be afraid” (Psalms 56:4). “Who do you trust to answer this $500 question?” asked the television show host.

Jan. 28 a day Alabamians won’t soon forget

By Slade Blackwell Last week started out like any other week during the legislative session: Monday I work in Birmingham and Tuesday morning I head to Montgomery and return Thursday. Then the snow hit. Like so many others in Birmingham and the surrounding areas, I was stuck. Thankfully I made it back home safely, as did my family, but for others, that was not the case. Central Alabama was paralyzed with the ...
