Our View: Newspaper carriers provide link to a bygone era

Posted 6/30/2015 in Dispatch Editorials

In the Norman Rockwell version of America we carry around in our heads, the paperboy lives forever.

 

Possumhaw: The importance of duck oil

Posted 6/30/2015 in Local Columns

There's no reason under the sun the ducks should have survived this long, but there they are, waddling as fast as they can toward the house.

Partial to Home: Now is the time

Posted 6/29/2015 in Local Columns

We should seize the moment. As the only state in the union that incorporates the Confederate battle flag in its state flag, we signal to the rest of the world allegiance to a cause a large portion of our population associates with enslavement and oppression.

 

Voice of the people: Cameron Triplett

Sunday's paper held many well-reasoned letters concerning the "Confederate battle flag."

 

 

Charlie Mitchell: South's heritage includes reputation for gentility, too

Posted 6/29/2015 in National Columns

One stereotype we Southerners love to hear praises our collective gentility. We open doors for ladies. We say yes ma'am and no sir.

 

Ask Rufus: A historic flag for Mississippi

Posted 6/27/2015 in Local Columns

Once again the question of Mississippi's flag has reared an ugly head.

Although I find many of your political cartoons, mostly taken from the Atlanta Constitution, objectionable and divisive, I find the one from June 25 to reach a new low.

 

Our View: Roses and thorns

Posted 6/27/2015 in Roses & Thorns

A rose to the anonymous person who treated local law enforcement to a catfish meal Thursday at Graham Camphouse during a Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. The gesture comes at a time when law enforcement has been portrayed in a negative light around the nation -- deservedly so, in many cases.

 

Voice of the people: Bonnie Wise

I had ancestors who fought and died in the Civil War. I am proud of the Confederate blood in my veins.

 

 

Voice of the people: Jimmy Bonner

The recent article, "A Northern Perspective," by one of your reporters prompted me to respond to his comments about the South in general, and in particular his take on the mindset of the Southerner concerning his Civil War heritage and the ambivalence of the Northerner concerning his own.

 

 

Voice of the people: Albert "Chance" Laws

Mississippi needs a new flag. This is not because it is politically correct to do so but because it is just plain, flat-out correct to do so.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: A blueprint for changing the way we talk about race

Posted 6/27/2015 in National Columns

By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa C. Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.

 

Patrick Buchanan: Love and hate in Dixie

Posted 6/27/2015 in National Columns

"I will never be able to hold her again, but I forgive you."

 

Rheta Johnson: Gone but not forgotten

Posted 6/27/2015 in National Columns

I grew up in cemeteries. They were part of our education, recreation and, too often, conversation.
