Pass stronger animal cruelty laws

Posted 1/27/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

With our poverty and health issues, it's hard enough to be a human here. If you're a dog or a cat, forget it.

 

 

Don Waldon: Supports Tagert

The election of the Transportation Commissioner of the Northern District on Tuesday, Feb. 1 is most important to the future economic growth of Mississippi, including new high-paying jobs in the State.

 

 

Frank Webb: Who is our neighbor?

Posted 1/26/2011 in Local Columns

On Monday I observed an event some of which should be passed on to others in our community. It concerned the life and more particularly the death of Mr. Hozie Hawthorne.

 

Scott Colom: Entrepreneurs and the new marketplace

Posted 1/26/2011 in Local Columns

Charles O. Perkins and Mario Murray have at least one thing in common: They are both using Facebook to sell something.

 

The buck stops here: Why deer farms are a bad idea

Posted 1/26/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

We have farm-raised catfish. Why not farm-raised deer?

 

 

Deborah Walk: Abandoned pups

I got called on Sunday morning about a mother dog and puppies found dead on an old off-shoot road of Nashville Ferry past Bud Price Road.

 

 

Coming together for a more attractive 'front door'

Posted 1/25/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Right now, it doesn't look like much. But two improvements to the Columbus will beautify the downtown's front door and, in time, even transform how many of us interact with downtown itself.

 

 

Jay Lacklen: Golf: hunting refined

Posted 1/24/2011 in Local Columns

Testosterone and evolution have driven males into the woods to procure for the family. This is seldom required today, yet men are still driven to do something along those lines, we just can't seem to help ourselves.

 

 

Sanders Weatherby, Sr.: 'The reality of the time'

 

 

David Bailey: Sturgis South

 

 

Justin Sutton: Roe v. Wade

Roe v. Wade: Where's the celebration? As a father, I will never forget the feelings of joy and love I felt when I heard my son's heart beat for the first time. Thirty-eight years ago Saturday, the Supreme Court decided it was legal to stop the beating heart of an unborn child in its decision of Roe v. Wade. The Court's interpretation of the 14th Amendment and its ruling paved the way for expectant mothers to legally obtain an abortion. Many have hailed this case a landmark decision that advanced the power and status of women. If the court's ruling was such a victory, where were the celebrations this weekend?

 

 

Wayne Blankenship: 'The perfect candidate'

Perfect candidate I have been a resident of Columbus all of my life. I have always been concerned about the progress of our town. A short time ago it was announced that the head of the CVB would be leaving for another position in another city. To fill his vacancy Nancy Carpenter was selected to this position only until another person was found. This brings me to my point. Why should we look somewhere else when we have a person like Nancy Carpenter?

 

Scott Colom: Cheering for Leondra and Omar

Over the last few weeks, I've been thinking about how much Leondra Tillman and Omar Amir Gray's ability to stay away from drugs matters for the future of Columbus.

Birney Imes: A jewel of a school

Posted 1/15/2011 in Local Columns

The first thing you notice walking in is the blue under the portico. It's a Southern thing. You paint the ceilings of your porch blue to keep the wasps and dirt daubers away.

 

Helen Sue Parish: Concerned

I have been extremely concerned with the tone of things in this country, especially with the killings of innocent people, including a 9-year-old girl, in Tucson.

 

 

Eating our way out of recession

Posted 1/14/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Is the way to the area's economic recovery through our stomachs? Maybe so. Several interesting new restaurants have opened across the Golden Triangle in recent weeks.

 

 

John Imes: One family

On New Year's Eve in Alexandria, Egypt, a bomb went off at Coptic Christian church during a worship service, killing 21 people.
