Voice of the people: Dan Sibley

 

Slimantics: Welcome home, soldiers

Posted 7/14/2016 in Local Columns

This week, in the aftermath of the tragic shooting deaths of five Dallas police officers, coverage of the memorial and funeral services for the fallen men have reminded us of the sacrifices law enforcement is sometimes called to make in protecting our nation.

 

Rheta Johnson: Kris' birthday coming down

Posted 7/14/2016 in Local Columns

As soon as the heat dropped below 90 degrees one recent late afternoon -- about 7 o'clock, really -- I moved the CD player to the front porch, adjusted the fan just so and put my feet up on a coffee table. I played "Sunday Morning Coming Down" and "The Pilgrim" and "The Captive."

 

Kathleen Parker: David Brown, the voice America needs

Posted 7/14/2016 in National Columns

By now most Americans know the name of Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown -- and quite a few wouldn't mind seeing him play a larger national role.

 

Voice of the people: Gary Holtman

 

 

Voice of the people: Dixie Walker

 

Slimantics: Pokemon Go: Our new national nightmare has begun

Posted 7/13/2016 in Local Columns

Those who fail to learn from Pokemon history are destined to repeat it. Over the past week, a new, even more disturbing reincarnation of the Japanese trading card game -- Pokemon Go -- is sweeping the nation.

 

Leonard Pitts: Police are not the problem, we are

Our view: An apology

Posted 7/13/2016 in Dispatch Editorials

In Sunday's edition, we apologized for the editorial cartoon which appeared in Friday's edition.

 

 

Charlie Mitchell: Telemarkerters and cell phones

Posted 7/12/2016 in Local Columns

Some say "leapfrog." Tennis terms are better. Technology serves an update. The return can be a lob, or it could be a rocket. But there is always a return. No aces. Then another serve, then another return.

 

 

Froma Harrop: Attack on Dallas police was terrorism

Posted 7/12/2016 in National Columns

The gunning down of five cops in Dallas was terrorism, pure and simple. The lunatic who did it framed his rampage as retaliation for police shootings of African-Americans. But these were not two sides of the same coin. They were different coins altogether.

 

Possumhaw: Dunnarts, bandicoots and wombats

Posted 7/11/2016 in Local Columns

Signs pointed to raccoons having returned to the Prairie house. There was the day a small, empty, well-washed plastic container of crab salad had been lifted from the recycle bin and left on the porch under an Adirondack chair. Disappointing for sure for the raccoon.

 

Patrick J. Buchanan: Is Hillary morally unfit to be president?

Posted 7/11/2016 in National Columns

Does Hillary Clinton possess the integrity and honesty to be president of the United States? Or are those quaint and irrelevant considerations in electing a head of state in 21st-century America?

 

 

Other Editors: More damning evidence on Kemper plant

Posted 7/11/2016 in National Columns

Mississippi Power Co.'s "clean coal" boondoggle is an ongoing disaster: humongous cost overruns, grossly missed timetables, construction blunders and, now, the possibility of criminal charges for misleading investors about the still unfinished experiment in Kemper County.

 

 

Birney Imes: An apology

Posted 7/9/2016 in Local Columns

Political cartoonists often take extreme positions to make their point. Even so, the cartoon that ran in Friday's paper advances a perception that is insensitive, hurtful and unfair to the many caring public servants who work in law enforcement. For this we apologize.
