The article on Guin’s Mayor Phil Segraves on April 26, in the Journal Record was a reminder of my awakening back in 2014. The mayor’s description of his heart events reminded me of my heart attacks.

MONTGOMERY – An addiction committee formed through Marion County leadership will not recommend a ban on cash payments for buprenorphine, a drug used in addiction therapy.
District 6 Sen. Larry Stutts, R-Tuscumbia, who is one of two Marion County senators, sponsored the legislation that created the committee during last year’s legislative session.
Stutts, who is a physician himself, drafted the bill with the help of Hamilton addiction medicine specialist Dr. Brent Boyett. State Rep. Tracy Estes, R-Winfield, carried the bill in the House.
