Our View: Harry Sanders' sure-footed stewardship

Posted 2/3/2015 in Dispatch Editorials

When Lowndes County Supervisors sold the county hospital it 2006, it produced a $30-million nest egg and a world of temptation.

Posted 2/3/2015 in Local Columns

Columbus is proud of its downtown and is always trying to support the various businesses.

 

 

Froma Harrop: What killed the 'American Sniper'?

Posted 2/3/2015 in National Columns

The second-most jarring scene in "American Sniper" takes place not in the urban maze of wartime Iraq but in the domestic tranquility of Chris Kyle's home in Texas.

 

 

Letter to the editor: Lee Roy Lollar, Jr.

 

 

Froma Harrop: Free tuition at community college should just be the start

Birney Imes: And the bride wore ... a parachute?

Posted 1/31/2015 in Local Columns

"Did your mother use these much?" I asked my wife. I was washing dishes after a meal served on her mother's wedding china. "Hardly ever," Beth replied.

Rheta Grimsley Johnson: History on the big screen

Drones large and small are a fixture at this White House.

Mitt Romney and his allies are not very pleased with media magnate Rupert Murdoch, who this week said out loud what most political pros have been stewing about for years: Romney was a "terrible candidate."
