Charlie Mitchell: Dogs shouldn't ruff it, satellite TV provider says

Posted 8/19/2013 in Local Columns

This is too easy. A satellite TV channel for dogs was launched this month. Not about dogs. For dogs. To watch.

 

 

Local voices: A letter from the mayor

 

 

A good night for the city of Columbus

Posted 8/16/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

City officials and MDOT and railroad officials held at public meeting Thursday to listen to citizens' views on the proposal to close six Southside railroad crossings while adding safety devices at the remaining six crossings a between First Street and 22nd Street. They got an earful, too.

 

 

Our view: Mayor gets his truck, firefighters can wait and hope

Posted 8/15/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

Columbus Ward 3 councilman Charlie Box admitted he was "tickled to death" to bring the city's FY2014 budget into balance without the need for a tax hike. Certainly, we applaud the mayor, council and city department heads for their fiscal restraint for bringing into balance what began as a projected $860,000 deficit after its first budget workshop a few weeks ago.

Our view: Tax increase an inevitability in Starkville

Posted 8/14/2013 in Dispatch Editorials

The shoutin' isn't over. In fact, it probably hasn't even begun. But it appears Starkville will be raising taxes to support its 2014 budget.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: Of pleasure and parenthood

Slimantics: A Slim by any other name ...

Posted 8/13/2013 in Local Columns

An email and a phone call Monday have convinced me to make a confession. The email came from city attorney Jeff Turnage, who asked about the identity of Spencer Smith, who wrote a scathing letter to the editor that was published in Monday's Dispatch on the city's hiring of J5/Broaddus as project manager.

Possumhaw: Sometimes you take your chances

Posted 8/12/2013 in Local Columns

The snake raised its head and looked at me -- and that was his second mistake. I'd been noticing the goldfish were disappearing over several days, so I knew he was somewhere in the pond. I stomped back to the house and told Sam my fish were disappearing and I had seen the snake.

Mississippi Voices: Mississippians could use more time looking at the bright side

Posted 8/12/2013 in Local Columns

It was 60 years ago that Dr. Norman Vincent Peale issued "The Power of Positive Thinking." In the decades since, other books, songs, plays and movies have extolled the virtues of making an affirmative choice to be optimistic.

 

Voice of the People: A project for J5/Broaddus

Posted 8/12/2013 in Local Columns

I completely oppose the city's creation of a Project Manager position and the appointment of J5/Broaddus, a firm owned by the Mayor's campaign advisor and employing the Mayor's son, to that position.

 

Birney Imes: Hersh, Big Jim and Tuffy

Posted 8/10/2013 in Local Columns

During the winter Coach Brewer had his football players -- the ones who weren't playing basketball -- lifting weights, wrestling and playing handball. Our "handball courts" were defined by strips of masking tape on the gym floor. We would swat a racquetball against the concrete block walls of the gym. Good for eye-hand coordination and quickness, he told us. Most of the time, though, we goofed off.
