Our view: Abortion debate a moot point

Posted 4/27/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

Good for Hob Bryan. Rather than let a politically popular bill onto the Senate floor sure to be ruled unconstitutional, the Amory senator Thursday refused to let the bill out of the committee he chairs.

 

 

Voice of the people: Gary Holtman

There has been a big hullabaloo in the news lately about the Secret Service agents and their liaisons with prostitutes in a foreign country. These people are supposed to be well-educated and intelligent, even before being educated.

 

 

Our view: Hazing, a dangerous and demeaning ritual

Posted 4/26/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

There is a movement afoot -- at least in the Northeast -- to end hazing on college campuses, and we think it's long overdue.

 

 

A letter from the chief

To the Citizens of Columbus: I am humbled by the honor to lead one of the best and brightest police departments in the State of Mississippi. Anyone who reads the paper and sees the news shouldn't be surprised that our department has been tested and criticized in recent months.

 

My take: St. John reappears as political gadfly

Posted 4/25/2012 in Local Columns

I'll admit it. When I first heard St. John was starting a newspaper, I was skeptical.

 

Our view: School superintendent decision will have lasting impact

Posted 4/25/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

Tomorrow the Columbus School Board will discuss their search for a superintendent, something they've been doing for more than a year now.

 

 

Voice of the people: Ben C. Toledano

Letter to the Editor: Takes issue with columnist's assertions on race

 

 

Our view: Earth Day

Posted 4/20/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

Sunday is Earth Day, or as the United Nations deemed in 2009, International Mother Earth Day.

 

My take: My dad's new idea

Posted 4/18/2012 in Local Columns

Anyone who knows my father knows he's a man of ideas.

 

Our View: The power of the spoken word

Posted 4/17/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

Of the courses we wish we had taken in high school and didn't, speech ranks high on the list.

 

Birney Imes: Street-front gardens offer drive-by delights

Posted 4/14/2012 in Local Columns

Our early spring has gardeners in a feeding frenzy. Go to any garden center and see for yourself. Friday, at a local nursery, I saw a woman wearing a T-shirt that read, "Will Garden for Food."

Starkville to host public meeting on historic register designation

The Starkville Central Neighborhood Foundation is pushing for a National Register of Historic Places nomination for Starkville's downtown district which, if approved, would give property owners in the proposed district access to significant tax incentives for renovations and purchases.

 

Our View: National register designation would benefit Starkville's downtown

Posted 4/13/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

The city of Starkville is moving forward -- albeit slowly -- in its quest to have its downtown included in the National Register of Historic Places. Downtown Columbus has benefited from the designation -- the evidence is plain to see -- and so will Starkville.

 

Shannon Bardwell: The way of suffering

Posted 4/9/2012 in Local Columns

By the sixth week of Lent I was totally torqued and twisted into a most uncomfortable frame of mind and body. But by the seventh week, everything became crystal clear. I was meant to be uncomfortable, for discomfort showed who I really was. Ah ... there was the rub.

 

Brenda Caradine: 'Renaissance man'

Kudos to Jan Swoope. What a wonderful article Wednesday about local author Michael Smith's success in the literary world in New York, publication of his latest book and movie deal in the works.
