The city of Columbus has punted a pending criminal case against a former city councilman to Lowndes County Justice Court.
The father of a woman accused of providing alcohol to one of four New Hope teenagers injured in an automobile accident said his daughter only gave one of the teens one sip of her beer.
OCH Regional Medical Center Chief Executive Officer Richard Hilton said a report calling upon the county to seek transaction proposals for the publicly-owned health care operation was led to its conclusion because of cherry-picked data misrepresenting the hospital's true financial standing.
Ward 1 Starkville Alderman Ben Carver warned his county counterparts during Tuesday's public hearing on OCH Regional Medical Center's future that selling or leasing the hospital would be "political suicide" and that he would "find people to run against" sitting incumbents if they move forward with a deal.
A $611 billion defense policy bill that is before the U.S. Senate this week could mean good news for Columbus Air Force Base and all other U.S. military installations.
