Posted 11/21/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

The big story from Tuesday's Starkville Board of Aldermen meeting was supposed to be about compromise.

Possumhaw: Ladybug, fly away home

Posted 11/18/2013 in Local Columns

Ladybugs swarmed by the thousands. They whirled around the porch ceiling; they crawled on the side of the house, the garage, the boat shed. Ladybugs landed on our arms. When one took flight, three took its place.

Ask Rufus: Stories that link history

Posted 11/16/2013 in Local Columns

I am frequently asked where I find the details of the stories in my column. Sometimes things just link together. A couple of weeks ago my column dealt with the construction of Andrew Jackson's Military Road. One problem with a column that only runs around 800 words is the inability to fully provide background material. So today I will delve into seemingly unrelated accounts that link together and help tell the story of the Military Road and the founding of Columbus.

Birney Imes: Jerry Rice comes home

Posted 11/16/2013 in Local Columns

Sometime in the spring of 1986 the town of Crawford threw a party for one of its native sons, Jerry Rice. After a dazzling college career as a wide receiver at tiny Mississippi Valley State University, Rice had been drafted first round by the San Francisco 49ers. Jerry Rice Appreciation Day was a decidedly homespun affair. There was a parade featuring two Cadillacs. One of them, a salmon-colored convertible, had a front tag proclaiming, "My Other Car is a Cadillac." The event culminated at an unkempt park. A troupe of break-dancers in red sateen outfits performed some impressive acrobatics on flattened refrigerator boxes and then a few people made speeches.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- I am winding my way down to the Louisiana Capitol basement, trying to find House Committee Room 6, which is as exciting as it sounds and not evident by the crowds gathering to hear me read.


Kathleen Parker: The sinking ship of Obamacare

Posted 11/16/2013 in National Columns

Let's recap: If you like your insurance policy, you can keep it. No, wait. If you liked your policy, it was probably worthless anyway. Scratch that. If your junk policy was canceled and you still want it, you can keep it. Er, get it back.


Our view: Borsig has provided quiet, effective leadership as MUW president

Posted 11/15/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

On Wednesday, the state college board made a decision to extend Dr. Jim Borsig's contract as president of Mississippi University for Women for another four years. That has to be one of the easiest decisions the board has made this year.
