Alabama’s economic boom should be heard, felt statewide

When I was growing up in Haleyville, I can remember people in July and August saying, “It’s hotter’n blue blazes outside.”
Well, you could certainly describe America and Alabama’s current economic boom as being “hotter’n blue blazes.” Alabama’s economy is scorching hot, with the lowest unemployment numbers in our state’s history. One county economic development director told me that “if you want a job, you can find one right now.”
