Judge dismisses wrongful death lawsuit over abortion

An Alabama judge has dismissed a wrongful death lawsuit filed on behalf on an aborted embryo by a man who was upset that his ex-girlfriend ended her pregnancy. Madison County Circuit Judge Chris Comer ruled Friday that Ryan Magers could not bring a wrongful death claim over a legal abortion. Magers had sued the Alabama clinic where he believed his ex-girlfriend obtained the abortion pill, on behalf of himself and the estate of the aborted embryo. The Alabama case, which attempted to vest the embryo with legal rights, drew national attention in March after a probate judge allowed Magers to...

Commissioners cited the company's promise of 150 jobs as well as additional tax revenue. Twin Pines Minerals is seeking federal and state permits to mine for titanium dioxide less than 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) from the edge of the Okefenokee, the largest federal refuge east of the Mississippi River....

Review: Marc Cohn, Blind Boys of Alabama blend pop, gospel

Marc Cohn and Blind Boys of Alabama, "Work to Do" (BMG) Marc Cohn and the Blind Boys of Alabama's new album began as an EP of studio recordings before being wisely extended with their performance for the PBS concert series "The Kate." The album kicks off with the gospel standard "Walk in Jerusalem" and its enthusiasm and joyous beat, to paraphrase a line from Cohn's biggest hit, may make you a Christian, at least while you listen. The other songs meant for the EP, the Cohn-penned title track and "Talk Back Mic," co-written with producer John Leventhal, are also excellent...

A public school system in Alabama has delayed classes a second time because of continuing problems from a computer malware attack.

Officials also haven't said whether payroll or student information was affected. But Ashford High School posts on its Facebook page that workers can't view their pay information online so...

Alabama family continues fight for grease trap safety laws

An Alabama family is continuing its fight for new safety rules for restaurant grease traps across the nation. Corrie Andrews' 3-year-old daughter, Sadie Grace, died in October 2017 at an Auburn ice cream shop, The Montgomery Advertiser reported. She fell through the plastic covering of an underground grease trap at the establishment and drowned. This month's death of a 3-year-old boy who fell into a restaurant's grease trap in Rochester, New York, is a painful reminder of the need for safety regulations, Andrews said. Andrews cried the moment she heard, knowing the suffering and lifetime of grieving the New York...

Statue of slain civil rights activist dedicated in Detroit

A statue of a civil rights activist who was slain in Alabama during a 1965 voting rights march has been dedicated at the Detroit park that bears her name. The statue unveiled Tuesday shows Viola Liuzzo walking barefoot — with shoes in one hand — and a Ku Klux Klan hood on the ground behind her. Sculptor Austen Brantley, who memorialized the white activist from Detroit, says Liuzzo's life "tells us ... to take action in our community and our nation." Liuzzo, a 39-year-old mother of five, drove from Detroit to Alabama to join 25,000 others in support of a...

Report: Truck crossed highway line in crash that killed 8

A crash that killed eight people in Mississippi last month happened after a box truck crossed the center line of a two-lane rural highway and struck a van, according to a federal report issued Wednesday. The National Transportation Safety Board's preliminary report confirms what the van driver, Alejandro Estrejo Resendiz, told The Associated Press hours after the June 3 wreck near Scooba — that he swerved but the truck hit the van. All eight of the people killed were passengers in the van and they weren't wearing seatbelts. The van was owned by Sharp Forestry in Columbus, Mississippi. It departed...
