Possumhaw: Things that matter

Posted 7/18/2016 in Local Columns

Just inside the door of the Missionary Baptist Church I saw a white man to the far left, so I turned right. I didn't want us to "clump up," so I asked a beautiful young woman with long eyelashes if anyone was sitting next to her.

 

Thomas Sowell: The war on cops

There was never a more appropriately named book than "The War on Cops" by Heather Mac Donald, published a few weeks ago, on the eve of the greatest escalation of that war by the ambush murders of five policemen in Dallas.

 

Ask Rufus: 'A Moste Strange Weddinge of the Frogge and the Mouse'

Posted 7/16/2016 in Local Columns

Sometimes the stories behind stories can be more interesting than the story itself. Such is the case with the children's nursery rhyme/song "Frog Went A-Courtin." My story of the song begins in the middle.

 

Patrick Buchanan: Who gave us Justice Ginsburg?

Leonard Pitts: Police are not the problem, we are

Posted 7/16/2016 in National Columns

This is not about the police. At least, not solely. Granted, the police are the reason we are heartbroken today, the reason cable news networks are assembling panels to talk about black and blue, the fraught intersection between African Americans and the law.

 

Slimantics: Losing my head over a dream

Posted 7/16/2016 in Local Columns

I was not happy, not at all. For starters, I was dead. You know how it can be with dreams.

A rose to Emmie Sheretz, who again illustrates how one person can make a difference. Sheretz, a mom of two whose husband, Sam, is an instructor pilot at Columbus Air Force Base, has started a recycling program at the Hitching Lot Farmers' Market.

 

Our View: City's approach to paving is still short-sighted

What is equal is not always best. In fact, sometimes it is the worst approach.

 

Lynn Spruill: Bulldog Bash exits stage east

Posted 7/15/2016 in Local Columns

Slimantics: Welcome home, soldiers

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."
