Charlie Mitchell: How much is news worth?

Possumhaw: Fields of sunbeams

Posted 7/22/2013 in Local Columns

Occasionally an easy breeze blows through the tree canopy, and it feels cool. Other times, the wind is as still as death, the air so thick it's like pushing against a wall.

 

Susan Estrich: The role of the sole military adviser to the President

Posted 7/20/2013 in National Columns

It's not often that a testy exchange at a hearing, followed by a senator's statement that he would put a hold on the nomination until he got an adequate answer to his question, opens a window to a fundamental issue in our democracy. And a timely one.

 

 

Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Fire and rain

Posted 7/20/2013 in National Columns

"Welcome to the other Great Smoky Mountains," a friend in town said to me. She was right.

 

 

Leonard Pitts: Out of the mouths of children, wisdom

Posted 7/20/2013 in National Columns

Sometimes, the directness of children is unsettling.

 

 

Darlene Cox: Fade out hoodie

We all bleed blood when we go to the doctor.

 

 

Bill Poe: A pothole created by the aldermen

Ask Rufus: Summer vacations of the past

Posted 7/20/2013 in Local Columns

July always brings, hot humid weather and thoughts of vacations. Though destinations and entertainment have to a large extent changed, summer vacations have long been with us. While people still often go to the Biloxi and the Gulf, who now goes to or has even heard of Way, Mississippi?

Slimantics: Gopher Frogs: They've lost that lovin' feelin'

Posted 7/19/2013 in Local Columns

As part of its mission as a research university, the folks at Mississippi State are always up to something interesting.

Leonard Pitts: We need to wake the hell up

Posted 7/17/2013 in National Columns

Four words of advice for African-Americans in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal: Wake the hell up. The Sunday after Zimmerman went free was a day of protest for many of us.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Why was he allowed to walk around armed?

Posted 7/17/2013 in National Columns

It is easy to understand how everyone in the Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case feels. If I were Martin's mother, I'd want his killer's heart on a platter. If I were Zimmerman's mother, I'd be grateful my son escaped greater injury, however he managed.

 

 

Voice of the people: Berry Hinds

 

 

Our view: Crawford's needs should not be ignored

Posted 7/16/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

Monday was a pretty good day to be a Lowndes County supervisor.
