Columbus High staff, parents and students last night hosted the first of what should grow into an annual celebration of the diverse range of activities at the school.
I had my first day of rehearsal with the Starkville/MSU community band on Monday. As a disclosure in my own defense, picking up a clarinet after six years is not like riding a bike.
Last week we looked at a few contests some large corporations are currently running on their Facebook pages. Let's look at some ways local businesses can create buzz with their pages.
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.
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.
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.
Charles O. Perkins and Mario Murray have at least one thing in common: They are both using Facebook to sell something.
We have farm-raised catfish. Why not farm-raised deer?
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.

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.

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?
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.

Why should we look somewhere else when we have a person like Nancy Carpenter?
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.
