Protecting and Caring for the Most Vulnerable: Abused and Neglected Children

Abused and neglected children are the most vulnerable among us. We can all agree that a child deserves a stable and safe environment to grow up in, but unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. We should do everything we can to protect children who are at risk.  Story

Alabama Economic News Is Still Good

Concerns for the U.S. economy can be heard from coast to coast as the housing market slows, energy prices rise, and the unemployment rate starts to inch higher. However, for the first time in living memory, Alabama is in a position to weather the economic storms better than most states. There has been a recent string of very good economic news for our state.  Story

Looking at Energy Solutions for Alabama

These days energy is on everyone’s mind. Gasoline prices are hitting record highs, and filling up the tank will never be as cheap as it once was. Electricity bills are going up, and when a cold snap comes, we all worry what the bill will look like.  Story

It is difficult to balance budgets with current economic forecasts

Last week was the opening of the 2008 Legislative session, and the first real look at the budgets and the financial condition of state government. On February 7, Gov. Riley presented his budgets to the Legislature, and there has been a lot of discussion about them, especially on the estimates of how the economy will be doing.  Story

Alabama is Better Positioned than Most to Weather an Economic Storm

We hear it on the news and read it in the papers; the economy is slowing down, and may very well go into recession. We’ve all been through this before. There was a major slowdown in the late 1970s, and then in the 1980s. At the beginning of this decade, we were mired in a somewhat dead economic period. And when you talk to folks who can remember all the way back into the 1930s, they will tell you our state economy grew so little that when there was a recession in the rest of the country, the joke was that Alabama couldn’t tell the difference.  Story
