Official reports are saying 25 cases of the Zika virus have been found in Alabama. These cases have been reported across 16 different AL counties. All cases received the virus outside US borders, but the possibility of the disease finding its way to Alabama mosquitos is all too real.

Tuesday morning State Health Officer Dr. Tom Miller said, “We have been working with a variety of partners, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the medical community, to identify individuals who need to be tested for the Zika virus and with those who have tested positive.

Bentley’s “one best option” Lottery less immoral than ‘allowing a child to die’

This morning at Children’s Hospital of Alabama, Gov. Robert Bentley shared his thoughts on the potential AL lottery.

“When you look at this you say: ‘Which is the most immoral: buying five lottery tickets with money you earned or allowing a child to die?’ I don’t think there’s even a choice there, so we must fund Medicaid, we must take care of our sick children, our disabled people, those in nursing homes, those with mental illness,” Bentley said regarding his “one best option” lottery.
