ECOVIEWS: In light of video, do eagles ever prey on children? - I saw a recent YouTube video that went viral showing an eagle swooping down from the skies and supposedly carrying off a small child in a playground in Canada.

December 30th, 2012
GUEST COLUMN: Americas spiritual leaders are too silent - I have heard and read just about everything related to the issue of mass violence and gun control today in America — everything from solutions as zany as arming everyone to taking guns away from all. We plan to turn our schools into little fortresses and hire thousands of psychologists and police professionals to track down, analyze and neutralize every potential psychotic killer in the land, and finger pointing goes on and on. 18944
December 30th, 2012
GUEST COLUMN: Focus should be on mental health in wake of Newtown - The events that occurred in Newtown, Conn., are appalling and troublesome.

SOUTHERN LIGHTS: Discount store visit brings joy to the world - Of course, it wasn’t hard for me to ignore Perry Como, Jack Jones and Brenda “Rocking Around the Christ-a-mus Tree” Lee. I pretty much listen the other way when they pop up all over the radio during the holiday season. But usually there’s something about my personal holiday playlist that puts me in the spirit of the season, be it Charlie Parker’s “White Christmas,” Charles Brown’s “Please Come Home for Christmas” or that lovely recording by Dudley Laufman and the Canterbury Country Dance Orchestra, “Mistwold.” (I don’t think the composer of that last piece had the season in mind — it refers to a rural farm — but it certainly sounds holiday-ish.) This year, however, I wasn’t much in the holiday mood. The congressional lawmakers were making the stock market go down and taxes rise because of the fiscal cliff impasse. Some idiot with a gun killed 20 children and six adults in Connecticut. Another idiot with a gun had set a fire in New York and killed two responders. There were gun murders in Birmingham. 18938

Huber of Yale University, Seth J. Hill at the University of California, San Diego, and Gabriel S. Lenz at the University of California, Berkeley, said voters are susceptible to biases even when facing financial rewards to act differently and even when countering information is available. 18930

A look at West Alabama's year - At first glance, 2012 might seem a lot like 2011 in West Alabama.
