The Connection: The Radio Show

Everyone should have a voice. Starting today, The Connection: The Radio Show will be bringing the Shoals the voice of the people. Tune in to WBTG each weekday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to hear Trader and J.J. Ray discuss local, state, and national politics.

Liberal? Conservative? Moderate? Anywhere in between? You'll be welcome on The Connection: The Radio Show. Don't have a radio? No problem. The Connection: The Magazine will be streaming the show each day.

Good luck to Trader and J.J. on this worthwhile political project!


We often receive e-mails asking why Franklin County has so much crime. That would make an interesting psychological study, but the answer may be extremely simple. Franklin County is economically depressed, and those with talent and professions often move to more urban areas, leaving the dregs behind. No, we don't think everyone in Franklin should be considered part of humanity's dregs, but a quick look at the crime rate for that area speaks volumes.

Franklin County is not alone. Many months ago on our Shoals Crime Blog we featured the web site People You'll See in Hell. If you currently think our area of North Alabama has a monopoly on sick crimes, you'll change your mind after reading this site (Warning--Strong Language).
