It’s triple trouble in the new issue of Lagniappe, where we examine the ethical or legal questions surrounding the leaders of all three branches of state government. While Gov. Robert Bentley continues to downplay the seriousness of his alleged extramarital affair, Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard is headed to trial next week on 23 felony corruption charges. Meanwhile, Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has been suspended pending a review of his orders regarding same-sex marriage last year. In Bay Briefs, we follow up on a First Amendment case in Baldwin County and on the land deal for the proposed Mobile County soccer and aquatic complex. There’s also an update on incorporation efforts in Fort Morgan, while the Mobile Housing Board said goodbye to a long-time board member. In Cuisine, learn how to do a back yard fish fry right, Arts has a preview of Kimi Maeda’s performance piece “BEND,” and Music has a Hangout Fest preview interviewing Jason Isbell and the lead singer from Nahko & Medicine for the People. Sports features the annual L’Arche Football Preview which is hosting Arkansas football coach Bret Bielma, the Real Deal has fresh tourism numbers from Baldwin County and Boozie saw some “moon-lighting” and “Marley dogs” worth of this week’s Mobile Magnified. Read all about it in the new issue of Lagniappe, online and on stands now!
