Perched near the bustle and traffic of Main and Fifth streets downtown, the Rosenzweig Arts Center is an oasis of serenity -- anyone can put the brakes on a busy day, pause a few minutes and take refuge in the art on display.

 

 

Editorial: An honor well deserved

Posted 5/8/2010 in Dispatch Editorials

Birney Imes: Market Street stories

Posted 5/8/2010 in Local Columns

Frances Hairston's great grandmother, Anna, moved to Yazoo City from Germany during the Civil War. No doubt it was an inopportune time and certainly it was an unlikely place, but the young girl was intrigued by stories told by visiting relatives who owned a store in the Delta town. Somehow Anna managed to convince her parents the move was a good idea.

Garthia Elena Burnett: City not so friendly anymore?

Posted 5/5/2010 in Local Columns

If you’ve had your ear to the grapevine over the past couple years, you’d think Columbus could be featured on an episode of “Gangland.”

Birney Imes: One mother in law’s take on city planning

Posted 5/2/2010 in Local Columns

The other night, my mother in law, who has a genius for distilling a complex issue into its essence, said as she was polishing off her daily Dispatch crossword, “Columbus has too many people finding fault with it instead of finding good.”

 

Steve Rogers: Our own worst enemy

Posted 5/2/2010 in Local Columns

The response – and lack of – to the recent fatal shooting at a Columbus nightclub is not only disturbing but also indicative of the city's propensity to sometimes be its own worst enemy.

Steve Mullen: A bridge that helped revive a city

Posted 4/28/2010 in Local Columns
