Today marks the end of national police week.
State troopers from troop g in starkville honored their fallen brothers today with 5 different wreath laying ceremonies across the area.
In ackerman, friends and family of trooper bobby wells jr. came together in remembrance.
"it's hard to believe it's been since 1995.
It feels like it was just yesterday if we think about it."
Jan wells has been coping with the loss of her brother for over two decades.
She says she comes to the memorial every year with her mother, edna wells.
But this year, her mother has fallen ill... and jan has to bare the pain alone.
"it's kind of hard on me to come down here by myself, and i know god is with me and my mother's with me and bubba's with me and of course our daddy... he's up in heaven with bubba."
Many troopers were also in attendance.
Some of them knew trooper wells personally and shared their stories of him... for those in attendance, today's ceremonies serve as an unfortunate reminder.
"it serves as a reminder to us just to remember the price that we pay to live in freedom.
To live in a state of law and order requires sacrifice sometimes, so it's a reminder to all these guys out here that the ultimate price could be called upon you doing your job and your duties as a trooper and an officer or any law enforcement officer in the state."
"it means a lot for them to remember the law enforcement that was killed in the line of duty.
Even though it's been 24 years, i'm just glad that they remember him every year because he was such a great guy, and he payed the ultimate price.
" as for trooper wells... his memory and legacy won't end with national police week, instead they'll live on... through the community he served.
"every time i mention his name to some starkville person, they always remember him being such a great guy who just loved to cut up and laugh.
He was just an all around likeable person."
Troop g held four other memorial ceremonies today in eupora, starkville, louisville, and west point.
First look right on cue, temperatures have started warming across the region.
As we head into next week, our rain hundreds protest alabama's abortion ban at the state capitol.
The associated press says hundreds of demonstrators marched to the capitol in montgomery today to protest the state's new abortion ban.
Protesters chanted "my body, my choice!"
And "vote them out!"
During the rally.
The march comes just days after gov.
Kay ivey signed the near total abortion ban into law.
It will be the country's most restrictive abortion law and is to set to go into effect in six months.
The law bans abortion in almost all cases unless the mother's health is at risk.
The ap says planned parenthood and the american civil liberties union say they plan to sue the state to try to block the law's implementation.
Denver may be 1,300 miles away from the alabama capitol, but the new abortion law in that state is impacting coloradans on both sides of the controversial issue.
Here's reporter joe st.
George out of colorado.
Saturday denver, co lisa kathryn denver resident laura chapin advocate for naral jeff hunt director of the centinniel institute its a controversial topic for sure and while alabama 's law may have nothing to do with colorado law ...its making an impact in our state.
If you have been on any of these social media sites lately you have likely...seen a post about..alabama's new abortion law.
The most restrictive in u-s making it a felony to perform an abortion unless a woman is likely to die during pregnancy or childbirth.
Coloradoús capitol maybe 1300 miles from montgomery...but the law is making waves here lisa kathryn: "i wanted to kinda use whateever platform i have to let people know they are not alone."
Denver resident lisa kathryn is one of many coloradoans feeling the need to speak up...posting on facebook i was raped i was impregnanted i had an abortion.
I am appalled with alabama.
Lisa telling us...she's part of growing movement of women sharing their abortion expierence "i don't really follow politics that much..its not something im into but this as enraged me."
Alabama's new law isn't just impacting colorado social media feeds... "we've seen a huge surge in volunteers we've gotten calls we've gotten emails."
Laura chapin is an advocate for naral....an abortion rights group.
She says phones have been ringing off the hook at places like denver's planned parenthood.
Laura chapin: "there are women with appointments in alabama that need help getting access to care.
There is an abortion fund in alabama called yellow hammer that we've encouraged people to support."
But if you to the campus of colorado christian university...you realize there are plenty of people on the othr side of this.
Energized by alabama.
Jeff hunt: "its a great day for the babies of alabama."
Jeff hunt is director of the centinniel institute and says for conservatives this is all about getting a case back to the supreme court and perhaps convicing justices to overturn roe v wade.
"there is not a right to an abortion in the constutition."
A hearing to potentailly overturn roe v wade.
Thats a long way away though.
Colorado reproductive rights advocates are though planning for the possibility women from other states could travel to colorado for an abortion...since this state has some of the strongest abortion rights laws in the country.

Molly jacobsen throwing flames early on.
She finished with ??
In the third inning, the rebels' offense went to work.
Starting with freshman mikayla allee... a solo blast to get this party started.
That's just her second home run of her career.
Kylan becker would then get an in the park homerun to give ole miss a 2- nothing lead, cajuns bring in their relief pitcher, then abbey latham gets in on the action.
A solo homer makes it 3- zip.
We're still in the third, kaylee horton sends a bullet to center... she turns on the jets, makes it all the way to third.
Kelsha loftin and autumn gillespie both cross the plate.
Rebs scored 5 runs in the third.
And they'd go on to get the win in game one of the afternoon by that many a 5-1 win for the rebels would force them into a game two.....the winner advances to a super regional the pressure is on for game two of the afternoon between the rebels and the rajun cajuns...the winner advances to a super regional bottom 1st, gabby alvarez knocks one out into right for an rbi single....kylan becker is able to come home and scores the first run of the game same inning, 2 outs...jessica puk gets her shot into left field also sending autumn gillespie home..the rebels leading 2-0 top 2nd...julie rawls up to bat for the cajuns...she sends one deep into center but kylan becker robs her of a 2- run homer that would've tied it all up... bottom 3rd...kaylee horton at the plate...she gets a single shot to go and abby latham scores run number three...ole miss leading 3-zip top 4th...brittany finney on the mound for the rebs...strikesout lexie comeaux and sends it to the bottom of the inning while lousiana remains scoreless on the board ull able to take the lead...top 7th it'd be all knotted up at 4... kaylee horton with the knock to short...kylan becker comes into home for the winning run!!
Ole miss tops louisiana 5-4 and advances on to the team's second ever super regional an electric moment for the ole miss rebels with a walk-off, the rebels not only win the ncaa oxford regional, but also earning a spot in the program's second ever super regional the last time ole miss made an appearance in a super regional was not too long ago, back in 2017 the win over lousiana was the third straight elimination game ole miss had won over the weekend head coach mike smith said that the end of the game all came down to doing his job "i had to finally do some coaching and figure out how am i gonna scratch away one or do i want to try to get two here.
In my mind i was like if e can tie this thing up, i'll take our chances in extra innings.
These girls just had that never say die attitude.
Things worked out.
The unorthodox people came up to the plate at the right time for us and stepped up and executed the things we needed them to do.
Everybody came out and said all these negative things and i was like woah that's not how i expected everybody to react.
Coming out losing early in the series i think a lot of people were like haha told you so but looks like we got the last laugh."
