  • Why I don’t smoke

    The summer of my 10th birthday found me on my grandparents’ farm in rural, Appalachian Alabama. Their farm was a collection of barns and outbuildings around a small, white frame house sitting on a hill overlooking the Coosa River. Being devout Baptists, my grandparents paid especial attention to the scriptural injunction of Genesis Chapter 9—that part about multiplying and replenishing. They obeyed that scripture 13 times of which I am aware. Their 13 children produced a bountiful supply of grandchildren of which I am one.

    The Senate is working diligently toward a budget compromise ensuring the people of the Commonwealth are not left without a state budget at the end of the session. We do not want to waste taxpayer dollars by calling a special session.

  • Rand addresses questions about stalled budget talks

    Since House and Senate leaders announced Thursday morning that budget talks had stalled, there have understandably been many questions from the public about what happened – and what is likely to happen next.
    If the conflict could be boiled down to a single word, it would be “education.” The House believes that, in an era where there is money to meet our core needs and fully fund contributions to our two main public retirement systems, schools and universities should not be cut.
