Shop locally this holiday season

The Christmas season has begun.

 

 

Roses and Thorns 11-7-10

Posted 11/6/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

Veterans of the U.S. armed forces, the Mississippi State University family, the Columbus Police Department, organizers and the army of volunteers of the Empty Bowls event, the city of Starkville's recycling committee and Ward 3 Alderman Eric Parker.

 

 

Our opinion: Take the time to serve

Posted 11/4/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

Occasionally, the Columbus-Lowndes Development Link will send around a list of city and county committee vacancies. These committees work behind the scenes to make things happen -- they tackle everything from policing historic districts to planting trees.

 

 

Chris Howard: Let it go, Gary

I enjoy the Dispatch.My favorite parts are the quiz, the letters and the comics. On Sundays I always read Rufus Ward and Shannon Bardwell.

 

 

Michael E. Williams: Supports The Eagles

I read Michael B. Dulaney's letter in Wednesday's paper about Victory Christian Academy's football team with some disappointment and have to question the timing here on the eve of the championship game.

 

 

Our opinion: Thanks, Travis, and good luck, Alan

Posted 11/3/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

Something as rare as a blue moon happened not once, but twice, on Tuesday night: Mississippi congressional incumbents lost their seats.

 

 

Bob Raymond: Show your love for Tops in Blue

The U.S. Air Force Tops In Blue will again perform in Columbus this Friday evening on the MUW campus. I would like to propose that we express our gratitude and appreciation to all these fine young performers by bringing them a little homemade treat.

 

 

Michael B. Dulaney: 'Perishable things'

If you will examine the football conference that Victory plays or should I say has ruled the last three years, you will find the other Christian schools are decidedly smaller, less experienced and equipped. It's sad that Victory elects to pursue trophy's, perishable things, more than playing in another conference that's much more competitive.

 

 

Our opinion: Get out and vote today

Posted 11/2/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

Today's the big day -- Election Day, when voters can decide who they want in congress and on local judges' benches in the coming years.

 

 

Michelle Easterling and Jim Helveston: Support Marshall

It has been our honor and privilege to practice law with Bob Marshall, a candidate for Circuit Judge, Place Three, for a total of 37 years. We are proud to call him our business partner, but even more, our friend.

 

 

Thomas (Tom) Harris: Supports Kitchens

It is a shame that a very qualified and long-serving judge has to be drawn into the political arena having to be criticized and somewhat slandered. My wife and I have both been called for jury duty with Judge Kitchens presiding, he has always treated all those in his courtroom with the utmost respect, fairness, dignity, and compassion.

 

 

Barthel D. Waggoner: Cowbells

Recently I read about Coach Dan Mullen of Mississippi State University telling the student body to respect the ruling on ringing cowbells at football games.

 

 

Vicki Hill: Supports Coleman

Lee Coleman and his wife, Peggy, are personal friends of mine. We share West Point as our hometown.

 

 

John Gaskin: Supports Marshall for judge

For those not aware, a new circuit judgeship has been created--Place Three--that serves Oktibbeha, Clay, Lowndes and Noxubee Counties. The candidates for this position must reside in Clay or Noxubee counties but will serve all four counties.

 

 

Our opinion: Land deal exposes Columbus' good ol' boy system

Posted 10/30/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

Columbus Light and Water's deal with a local developer to pay $996,000 for 118 acres, on which it plans to spread treated sewage, is smellier than we thought.

 

Roses and thorns 10-30-10

Posted 10/30/2010 in Roses & Thorns

West Point Mayor Scott Ross; Caledonia Elementary School; and Columbus Light and Water Department board

 

James Clayton Terry: To the mayor of Crawford

Dear Mayor Tolon: I bear witness to all the troubles that your city has undergone for longer than I can remember.

 

 

Bill Wells: Stinky land deal

I have no idea what the "going rate" for prime farmland is in this area, but research on the 'net shows me that prime farmland in Illinois is averaging $5,000 per acre.

 

 

Gary A. Chism: 'Fire Nancy Pelosi!'

Since 2007, when Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of The US House of Representatives, our national debt has risen $5 trillion. Let's get a perspective of how much money a trillion dollars represents.

 

 

Roy Edward Grubb: Childers vs. Nunnelee

I want to thank Travis Childers for the letter I received Monday, Oct. 25, in the mail. If the people think Nunnelee is going to win the election, better think differently.
