I enjoyed Peter Imes' article "Non-mechanical teaching" (9-22-2012). He said his teachers helped him to have "the ability to repair computers, use complex software and think critically," skills he "depends on every day."

As duly noted in Sunday's edition of The Dispatch, there is much to like about the Columbus Soccer Complex, which had its grand opening on Saturday.

 

 

Peter Imes: Non-mechanical teaching

Posted 9/22/2012 in Local Columns

Since my son was born a little more than six years ago, my wife and I have had countless angst-ridden discussions on what to do when he reached school age. Public, private, boarding, home -- we've weighed every schooling option. He started kindergarten last month, and, though we are thrilled with his school, the dialogue continues.

Certainly, parts of the recently-proposed Golden Triangle Regional Development Authority-especially the amount and methods of funding for the new organization-need to be explored further, but the plan will almost certainly come to fruition.

 

 

Our view: A refreshing change of direction...

Monday's meeting of the Columbus-Lowndes Convention and Visitors Bureau was a circumspect affair. The board did its business at a brisk pace, adjourning in about an hour. There were no wild allegations, no shouting matches, no flagrant flaunting of any rules.

Possumhaw: It's not about me

A friend showed me an email she received from her daughter. Her daughter is a full-time college student and has a full-time job at an attorney's firm. The email said that the attorney had called the office workers together and said, "Things are going to get a lot worse before they get better and it is going to happen soon."

Adele Elliott: Boob-tube politics

Are you tired of all the politicians and their inane rhetoric yet? Well, I hope not, because there is much more to come. Still, it is difficult not to be disgusted.

 

Our view: Betting on Joe

Friday afternoon the seven-member steering committee assigned the task of exploring a tri-county economic development coalition unveiled their findings before a large and generally supportive crowd at the East Mississippi Community College campus in Mayhew.

 

Slimantics: A look beyond the statistics...

Posted 9/14/2012 in Local Columns

Thursday afternoon at Emerson School in Starkville, I walked into a room full of statistics. And if the folks in charge had taken role, I imagine it would have gone something like this: Poverty? Here!

 

Voice of the people: Martin M. Pomphrey, Jr. M.D.

Reading your opinion in Wednesday's paper on the increasing expense of the GED test, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

 

 

Voice of the people: Brenda Caradine

The Commercial Dispatch was a great impetus to the success of the Tennessee Williams Tribute and Tour of Victorian Homes this year.

 

 

Our view: Lifeline, anyone?

Posted 9/13/2012 in Dispatch Editorials

Brandon Presley's visit to Columbus on Wednesday included a stop at The Dispatch. Presley is the Northern District Public Service Commissioner.
