If you will examine the football conference that Victory plays or should I say has ruled the last three years, you will find the other Christian schools are decidedly smaller, less experienced and equipped. It's sad that Victory elects to pursue trophy's, perishable things, more than playing in another conference that's much more competitive.
Something as rare as a blue moon happened not once, but twice, on Tuesday night: Mississippi congressional incumbents lost their seats.
It has been our honor and privilege to practice law with Bob Marshall, a candidate for Circuit Judge, Place Three, for a total of 37 years. We are proud to call him our business partner, but even more, our friend.
It is a shame that a very qualified and long-serving judge has to be drawn into the political arena having to be criticized and somewhat slandered. My wife and I have both been called for jury duty with Judge Kitchens presiding, he has always treated all those in his courtroom with the utmost respect, fairness, dignity, and compassion.
Recently I read about Coach Dan Mullen of Mississippi State University telling the student body to respect the ruling on ringing cowbells at football games.
Today's the big day -- Election Day, when voters can decide who they want in congress and on local judges' benches in the coming years.
Lee Coleman and his wife, Peggy, are personal friends of mine. We share West Point as our hometown.
For those not aware, a new circuit judgeship has been created--Place Three--that serves Oktibbeha, Clay, Lowndes and Noxubee Counties. The candidates for this position must reside in Clay or Noxubee counties but will serve all four counties.

Dear Mayor Tolon: I bear witness to all the troubles that your city has undergone for longer than I can remember.
I have no idea what the "going rate" for prime farmland is in this area, but research on the 'net shows me that prime farmland in Illinois is averaging $5,000 per acre.
When I was a kid, my mother on Saturday nights would pile us children into her Buick station wagon and take us to a drive-in on Sand Road for hamburgers.
Since 2007, when Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of The US House of Representatives, our national debt has risen $5 trillion. Let's get a perspective of how much money a trillion dollars represents.
I want to thank Travis Childers for the letter I received Monday, Oct. 25, in the mail. If the people think Nunnelee is going to win the election, better think differently.
Columbus Light and Water's deal with a local developer to pay $996,000 for 118 acres, on which it plans to spread treated sewage, is smellier than we thought.
It has been nearly a year since the worst fire in modern Mississippi history, and with another season of chilly weather bearing down on us, we're hoping lessons have been learned.
It's a shame and a sad commentary on people and today's politics when "loyal subscribers" and "close friends" get so bent out of shape over a newspaper's endorsement of ANY candidate that they cancel a subscription or refuse to look the publisher in the face.
There is a great need for overhead lighting on the 82 Bypass east of Military Road exit to Highway 50 exit.
President Barack Obama is not a Muslim. He isn't secretly trying to replace capitalism in America with socialism. This means he isn't a communist. He didn't inherit an anti-imperialist, anti-colonial gene from his father that causes him to hate small businesses. He doesn't look like Hitler. He doesn't have a deep-seated hatred of white people that is going to result in his banning the possession of firearms. He wasn't born in Kenya.
