Ask Rufus: A presidential visit to Columbus

Posted 4/9/2011 in Local Columns

Nov. 2, 1909, was to be a red letter day for Columbus. President William H. Taft was coming to town. He was to be accompanied by his Secretary of War, Hon. J. M. Dickinson, a Columbus native. (A few years later, Crawford native T. W. Gregory served as Woodrow Wilson's Attorney General.)

Local voices: 'They swarmed us like bees': an African visit, Part 2

The Limuru Children's Center, the primary focus of Global Connections, is home to 42 orphans. By our standards the facility is substandard, but when I went into town and other places, I realized how upscale Limuru is by comparison. The Center, a residential facility for elementary school age children, is open during the day for preschool children.

We wish this was an April Fool's joke, but it isn't: Each Mississippian, on average, consumes 82 gallons of soda per year.

Ask Rufus: And the band played 'Garry Owen'

Posted 3/26/2011 in Local Columns

Civil War reenactment bands are noted for their playing of period music. Bands recreating Southern units are always thought of as playing Dixie and The Bonnie Blue Flag but the popular music of the South was much more varied.
