Posted 10/16/2013 in Local Columns

Thursday's edition of The Dispatch will include a story about a group of mostly older women who gather in Columbus once at week to compete in a bowling league. Somewhere, there are 20-somethings shaking their heads in amusement: Don't these women have a bowling app on their smartphones?

Our view: It's a good idea; let's steal it!

The Dispatch generally frowns upon stealing in every form. But we are prepared to make an exception in the case of what will be happening in Natchez next month.



Frances Hairston: The beauty of the bois d'arc

Posted 10/15/2013 in Local Columns

If you have never had the privilege of viewing the beauty of a large bodock tree from your own yard, you've missed something. A gnarly looking twisting structure of a tree with big lime green fruit with a pebbly texture, the bodock could well be the official tree of the Prairie.

Possumhaw: Fall fishing at the creek

Posted 10/14/2013 in Local Columns

"Nose into the wake," Sam hollered. We were out for a little kayak fishing on Bear Creek when three fancy bass boats sped by. As luck would have it, there was a bass tournament going on.

Peter Imes: Give flowers, show appreciation

Posted 10/12/2013 in Local Columns

About three years ago, I walked past Linda Massey's desk and into my own office. My office has a window that looks into the front office of The Dispatch. I had noticed a man talking to Linda when I walked in, but didn't realize it was Lloyd Vaughan until I sat at my desk and looked out that window.

Charles Krauthammer: The way out

Posted 10/12/2013 in National Columns

For all the hyped indignation over GOP "anarchism," there has been remarkable media reticence about the president's intransigence. He has refused to negotiate anything unless the Republicans fully fund the government and raise the debt ceiling - unconditionally.



Leonard Pitts: Better connection and a disconnect

Posted 10/12/2013 in National Columns

The thing might be funny, except that somebody died. That part isn't funny at all. But the rest of it, the moments before Justin Valdez was killed, read like some twisted skit on "Saturday Night Live."



Rheta Johnson: Portrait of a man

Posted 10/12/2013 in National Columns

His prized possessions were a Stetson hat, a portrait print signed by Kentucky's Col. Harlan Sanders and a putter shaped like a hot dog and autographed by Bear Bryant, though three of his children had graduated from Auburn and he never played golf.



Nick Clark: More facts needed in EMCC editorial

I am writing this letter, not as an EMCC employee, but as a member of the 1964-65 Lion Football team.



Lynn Spruill: A job you love

Posted 10/11/2013 in Local Columns

Green Oaks is a subdivision in Starkville that has been around for a generation or two -- more accurately since the late 1950's. I know because my father developed it and my maternal grandfather who was a carpenter by trade built not only the first house but several houses on those first few streets.



Our view: State of health care should prompt closer look at hospital sale
