Air Force officials said Truax Field Air National Guard Base in Wisconsin and Dannelly Field in Montgomery, Ala., are the preferred locations for the squadronsBoth sites must go through an environmental analysis before the selection is finalized. “This is a huge announcement in the life of the river region and the great state of Alabama and I am honored to share it with each of you today,” Alabama GovKay Ivey said during a Thursday press conference announcing the selection.

Alabama and Wisconsin beat out locations in Idaho, Florida, and Michigan that were also competing for the project. try { _402_Show(); } catch(e) {} COMMENTS Business FCC proposes $13.4M fine for Sinclair NEW YORK (AP) — The Federal Communications Commission has proposed a $13.4 million fine on TV-station owner ...
