When the Columbus Police Department released video on Tuesday from the body cameras worn by the three CPD officers who were involved in the Oct. 16 shooting death of Ricky Ball, the most relevant video -- that taken immediately after the shooting was not included.

Sunday's article on the decline of hunting hinted at several reasons. Allow me to voice my views.

Posted 12/22/2015 in National Columns

"I worry greatly that the rhetoric coming from the Republicans, particularly Donald Trump, is sending a message to Muslims here ... and ... around the world, that there is a 'clash of civilizations.'"

Most of my family members, including myself, and my friends have their annual physicals during the last two months of the year, the holiday months.

 

Susan Estrich: Where can Rubio win?

Posted 12/21/2015 in National Columns

It's not exactly like Babe Ruth pointing with his bat to the stands where he was about to hit a home run.

 

 

Slimantics: Dad's love of hunting was a passing fancy for his boys

Posted 12/19/2015 in National Columns

As any gardener will tell you, often the health of a plant depends on the depth of its roots. My father was an enthusiastic hunter, yet his five sons were not.

 

Ask Rufus: Of Christmas, boats, books and highway robberies

Posted 12/19/2015 in Local Columns

We recently went to Williamsburg and enjoyed the decorations and feel of an 18th century Christmas. It did bring to mind the question of what was Christmas like in early Columbus?

Slimantics: Talking 'bout my generation: The movies the '70s

Posted 12/19/2015 in Local Columns

The 1970s were my teen-age years, and so identify the decade as the one I grew up in. Two days before I graduated high school, a far bigger event occurred. That day, May 25, 1977, was the day the original Star Wars opened.

 

Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Orphan dogs and Santa Claus

Posted 12/19/2015 in National Columns

She is a brindle mix. When I ask what kind of mix, the veterinarian says, "Well." Somebody kept the puppy about a year and a half -- again, the vet assigned an age -- found her a bother and drove to my woods in the North Mississippi hollow to put her out. In a poor county with no animal shelter or conscience, it happens.

"If you're in favor of World War III, you have your candidate." So said Rand Paul, looking directly at Gov. Chris Christie, who had just responded to a question from CNN's Wolf Blitzer as to whether he would shoot down a Russian plane that violated his no-fly zone in Syria.

 

Our View: Building boom lifts profile of 'Starkvegas'

Posted 12/18/2015 in Dispatch Editorials

Starkvegas. For years, the word was used derisively to describe the city of Starkville, whose blandness stood in -- pardon the pun -- "stark" contrast to the university that sustained much of the city's economy.

 

Lynn Spruill: A safe place

Posted 12/18/2015 in Local Columns

Veering off my usual morning route, instead of Sonic first, for some reason I can't recall, I rounded the corner from South Montgomery to Academy Road here in Starkville and noticed a sign in front of the fire station there. It read "Safe Place."

 

Wyatt Emmerich: Greg Iles on the state flag

Posted 12/18/2015 in Local Columns
