Charlie Box: Takes issue with Magby Creek editorial

Posted 3/12/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

I am enlightened but dismayed after having attended a Board of Supervisors meeting yesterday. It was my first since returning to Columbus, my hometown. I had heard and read in the newspaper about rowdy and disruptive meetings and the concern that at times no progress could be made because of it, even on important issues. So I decided to attend a meeting to see for myself; they are open to the public.

Posted 3/3/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Gray Swoope's successes in Mississippi have been noticed nationwide, and that's bad news for us, but great news for him.

 

 

Our view: City, county right to stay out of strike

Posted 3/2/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Unions are having it tough all over. We've seen the battles in Wisconsin and other states over public employee unions and collective bargaining rights, which allow workers to sit at the table and negotiate wages and benefits.
