Our View: Common thread exists among law enforcement, public perception and the media

Posted 7/28/2015 in Dispatch Editorials

It's a pretty tough time to be a good cop.

 

 

Charlie Mitchell: Katrina is proof people, including politicians, can team up

Posted 7/28/2015 in Local Columns

There's a saying that politics makes strange bedfellows, meaning people usually at odds sometimes find themselves working together.

 

Possumhaw: Wasp populations peak

Posted 7/27/2015 in Local Columns

When Sandra Bullock, in the 1995 movie "The Net," played a computer nerd whose identity was stolen and replaced by a criminal's identity, I developed a fear of losing my fingerprints. I considered taking my own fingerprints and putting them in a lockbox.

Lynn Spruill: Celebrity(?) waiter

Posted 7/27/2015 in Local Columns

My mother wasn't known for her cooking skills. She made a pretty good casserole or two and had a baked bean recipe that I remember fondly, but at home I lived off of cheese toast and pop tarts starting at an early age.

 

Other Editors: Southern Company continues scare tactics

Posted 7/27/2015 in National Columns

It is truly mind boggling what fools the Southern Co. execs in Atlanta think Mississippians are. As the power company's ill-conceived Kemper science project goes down the tube, it is resorting to the grossest of scare tactics.

 

Ask Rufus: Politics

Posted 7/25/2015 in Local Columns

It's election time and once again sparks are flying.

 

Ginger Hervey: Learning to understand in Mississippi

Posted 7/25/2015 in Local Columns

I had a conversation with my professor and mentor, Berkley Hudson, before I came to Mississippi. Berkley is a journalism professor at the University of Missouri, but he grew up in Columbus and has spent a good part of his academic career on a project centered around this town.

 

Partial to Home: Dollar Bill and Silly Rabbit

Posted 7/25/2015 in Local Columns

Chances are few motorists breezing along Starkville's Highway 12 notice the Stop & Go Car Wash.

 

Voice of the people: Cameron Triplett

While I deplore -- no, I detest -- the decision by the mayor and city council of Columbus to not fly the state flag on municipal buildings, I believe it is within their rights to do so. To me it is a knee-jerk, spineless, politically-correct response to a manufactured problem, unworthy of the time and effort currently being spent on it.

 

 

Voice of the people: Lee Roy Lollar Jr.

Take the Mississippi flag down. Prejudices are gone with the removal of a flag. Really? Prejudice is a heart thing not a flag issue.

 

 

Voice of the people: Raymond Gross

The right way to determine if a change needs to be made in our state flag is to put it to a vote state-wide -- to change or not to change, as we did some time ago.

 

 

Susan Estrich: The 'no shame' debate

Posted 7/25/2015 in National Columns

No one has a later term abortion because she's changed her mind about having a baby. Doctors in almost all states won't perform them for that reason; and, by the way, what kind of beasts do you think women are? Late-term abortions are tragedies, often a last resort because much-wanted babies, or their mothers, develop conditions not consistent with life.

 

 

Patrick Buchanan: 'A New Dark Age'

Posted 7/24/2015 in National Columns

"If God does not exist, then everything is permissible."

 

 

Froma Harrop: Sensitivity over at Gawker

Posted 7/24/2015 in National Columns

The truth will make you free, the more horrible the better. And the more humiliating the truth the richer you get -- certainly if you're Nick Denton, founder of the gossip-mongering website Gawker. But that was Phase One.

 

 

Our View: Out of the shadows, a question emerges

Posted 7/23/2015 in Dispatch Editorials

Joe Max Higgins isn't the biggest man in Lowndes County, but he does cast the biggest shadow.

 

 

Voice of the people: Harold W. Lewis
