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.

 

Birney Imes: Hamburgers like none other

Posted 10/30/2010 in Local Columns

When I was a kid, my mother on Saturday nights would pile us children into her Buick station wagon and take us to a drive-in on Sand Road for hamburgers.

 

Have a safe Halloween

Posted 10/29/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

 

 

Our opinion: Take fire safety seriously

Posted 10/28/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

It has been nearly a year since the worst fire in modern Mississippi history, and with another season of chilly weather bearing down on us, we're hoping lessons have been learned.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Political endorsements

It's a shame and a sad commentary on people and today's politics when "loyal subscribers" and "close friends" get so bent out of shape over a newspaper's endorsement of ANY candidate that they cancel a subscription or refuse to look the publisher in the face.

 

 

Doug Warren: Lights needed

There is a great need for overhead lighting on the 82 Bypass east of Military Road exit to Highway 50 exit.

 

 

Scott Colom: Facts matter

Posted 10/28/2010 in Local Columns

President Barack Obama is not a Muslim. He isn't secretly trying to replace capitalism in America with socialism. This means he isn't a communist. He didn't inherit an anti-imperialist, anti-colonial gene from his father that causes him to hate small businesses. He doesn't look like Hitler. He doesn't have a deep-seated hatred of white people that is going to result in his banning the possession of firearms. He wasn't born in Kenya.

 

 

Our opinion: Save the bell

Posted 10/27/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

Another Mississippi football tradition is on the ropes. Mississippi State football fans' unwillingness to silence their cowbells during game play, despite the pleadings of athletic officials, could lead to their ban from Davis Wade Stadium.
