Leonard Pitts: Better connection and a disconnect

Posted 10/12/2013 in National Columns

The thing might be funny, except that somebody died. That part isn't funny at all. But the rest of it, the moments before Justin Valdez was killed, read like some twisted skit on "Saturday Night Live."

 

 

Rheta Johnson: Portrait of a man

Posted 10/12/2013 in National Columns

His prized possessions were a Stetson hat, a portrait print signed by Kentucky's Col. Harlan Sanders and a putter shaped like a hot dog and autographed by Bear Bryant, though three of his children had graduated from Auburn and he never played golf.

 

 

Nick Clark: More facts needed in EMCC editorial

I am writing this letter, not as an EMCC employee, but as a member of the 1964-65 Lion Football team.

 

 

Lynn Spruill: A job you love

Posted 10/11/2013 in Local Columns

Green Oaks is a subdivision in Starkville that has been around for a generation or two -- more accurately since the late 1950's. I know because my father developed it and my maternal grandfather who was a carpenter by trade built not only the first house but several houses on those first few streets.

Our view: No justification for EMCC's blood lust

Posted 10/9/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

What was once conjecture is quickly become accepted fact: This year's East Mississippi Community College football team is the best in school history, surpassing even the 2011 team that captured the national championship.

 

 

Our view: When no decision is the best decision

Posted 10/8/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

It appears as though the Columbus City Council will not take up the matter of a proposal to close six railroad crossings on the city's Southside, although city leaders insist the idea could emerge again, perhaps as soon as next year.

Mississippi Voices: Mississippi's opt-out creates a gap for working people

Posted 10/7/2013 in Local Columns

Mary is a single parent of two children. She works, earning $9.50 an hour or about $19,300 per year. She receives no child support. She might be eligible for subsidized day care for the children, but her parents keep the kids while she is on the job -- and she much prefers that arrangement.

 

Other Editors: Exercise aids health, so why is message often ignored?

Ask Rufus: Where did that name come from?

Posted 10/6/2013 in Local Columns

More so than any other single question, I am asked about the origin of local names. What does Tombigbee mean? What is West Point west of? What does the Military Road have to do with the military? Our region abounds in interesting names. I will try to shed some light on a few of them.
