Our View: A new facility to treat an old malady

Posted 12/21/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Baptist Memorial Health Care has been a good neighbor. In 2006, Baptist purchased Columbus' hospital from Lowndes County for $30 million. In return, Baptist officials also promised to invest $40 million in the hospital over the coming decade.

 

 

Our View: Board appointments merit more discussion

Posted 12/20/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

A tremendous amount of the public's work is done by boards comprised of volunteers. All too often appointments to those boards are made with little discussion or publicity.

 

 

Our view: Hallelujah!

Our view: Lessons learned

Our View: A fearless and selfless leader

Posted 12/8/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Allegra Brigham is a modern-day Deborah. While she is no prophetess (to our knowledge), she delivered her alma mater from near implosion. Brigham re-embraced the disenfranchised former MUW Alumnae Association, restoring unity to a divided house

 

 

Our View: Time to tune in

Posted 12/7/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

In the spirit of openness the city turned to the public for help in its search for a new police chief.

 

 

Taxpayers to foot the bill for Allgood and Howard's mistakes

Posted 12/6/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Brian Holliman will get a new trial. And we get to pay for it.

 

 

Our View: Starkville and EMCC playing for championships; we wish them well

Posted 12/2/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

By Saturday night, the entire state will feel the sting of the Yellow Jackets. And Arizona will know why the Lion is the king.

 

 

Our View: Welcome aboard, Dr. Borsig

Posted 12/1/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Wednesday was quite a party for Mississippi University for Women.

 

 

Our View: Help Wanted

Posted 11/30/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

We are a community of interims. Columbus has an interim police chief, university president and school superintendent. Starkville also has an interim superintendent of education. Today, we expect Mississippi University for Women to be the first of these ships to name a full-time captain.

 

 

Our View: The enemy is us* (and Congress)

Posted 11/29/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Pizza is a vegetable. (Thank you, Congress.) And if your child gets too fat, he or she might end up a ward of the state. (Thank you, state of Ohio.)

 

 

Our View: Thanks for all our reasons to be optimistic

Our View: What if we gave a party and no one came?

Posted 11/22/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

What if there were four guests invited to this party, and three of them had to travel long distances at their own expense? Not to run this analogy into the ground, but what if only one of the guests can be assured of having a good time at this party?

 

 

Our View: A new president for The W

Posted 11/18/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Her eyes were nothing like the sun. The roses had faded from her cheeks. But for time and place, two years ago, Mississippi University for Women could have been the not-so-fair maiden of a Shakespearean sonnet.

 

 

Our View: The new CVB

Posted 11/17/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Over the past several months, dark clouds have loomed over the Columbus-Lowndes Convention and Visitors Bureau. We've taken the board to task on multiple occasions, questioning their transparency, the manner in which they selected their director and the lack of a clearly articulated mission.

 

 

Our view: Saint Alma

Posted 11/16/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

It was what every parent would want a school to be.

 

 

Our View: One who served

Posted 11/15/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

On Nov. 7, an American hero died. In the heyday of The Greatest Generation, we knew what heroes were. We knew what service was. Priorities were different. Times were simpler. Choices were clear.

 

 

Ask Rufus: Newspapers tell our history

Posted 11/6/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

People have often asked me where I find some of the little known events of history that I have written about. The answer is easy: The newspaper. Accounts of the settlement of what is now Mississippi have been published since articles on the French colony at Biloxi first appeared in French and English papers in 1699.

 

 

Our view: Time for voters to do their part

Posted 11/5/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

 

 

Our view: George vs. the aldermen

Posted 11/3/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Caledonia, the little town that could, can at times be a fractious place. At least that's the case where the board of aldermen and its sometimes contentious mayor, George Gerhart, are concerned.
