Tommy Tuberville has a new game plan for blocking

The United States Marine Corps does not have a commander for the first time in over 100 years. This is all because of Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville. Tuberville, who has never served in the military, is holding hostage hundreds of military assignments to force his MAGA social agenda on the women in our military because he doesn’t like the healthcare provisions approved by the Pentagon. This is freezing up promotions for over 200 top military posts that are critical to the safety of our national defense.

Kirkpatrick responds to letter from Hamm

The Journal Record published an article that was submitted to them by Joe Hamm from Hamilton. However, his name was not on the article as required by the JR. I am told that it was an oversight, and I have no reason to believe otherwise. Mr Hamm’s opinion of me and his interpretation of my article is totally false. He is certainly entitled to his opinion, but that is what it is: his opinion. Nothing he said was based on facts.

MARION COUNTY — President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and the U.S. Department of Education have announced a three-part plan that aims to help working and middle-class federal student loan borrowers transition back to regular payment as pandemic-related support expires. This plan includes loan forgiveness of up to $20,000.
The Journal Record reached out to local political leaders to ask their input on the new plans by the Biden-Harris Administration.
