Aaron Rice: State should not re-authorize administrative forfeiture

Posted 1/30/2019 in National Columns

If you asked most Mississippians whether the state should be able to confiscate cash and property from a person who was never charged with, much less convicted of a crime, the answer would be a resounding "no." Yet this is exactly what occurs every day under a practice known as civil forfeiture.

Narcotics officers with the Columbus-Lowndes joint narcotics task force recovered about $65,000 worth of illegal drugs in a raid in south Columbus Sunday.

 

Our View: Electric co-ops are key to bridging digital divide

Posted 1/29/2019 in Dispatch Editorials

Gov. Phil Bryant is expected to sign the Broadband Enabling Act into law by the end of the month.

Posted 1/29/2019 in National Columns

Possumhaw: Warm within and cold without

Posted 1/29/2019 in Local Columns

Sometimes the house feels like it's holding a chill. I add layer upon layer until I think I could hardly bend over, but still there's a chill.

 

Voice of the people: Cameron Triplet

 

 

Marc Dion: Stay with your own kind

Posted 1/29/2019 in National Columns

I've always lived among my own kind, which is humans, cats, dogs and the birds I feed in my yard. You can see someone who is a member of all those species if you look out the window of the apartment I live in, a second-floor apartment in the three-floor apartment building I own.

 

Partial to Home: Moon river

Posted 1/26/2019 in Local Columns

It was a scene straight out of Huck Finn. Two guys standing around a campfire on a remote island in a wide river, bright moon and stars overhead.

 

Other editors: More public scrutiny, not less, needed at MDOC
