Gwen Lollar: Thinking of the sacrifices

I wanted to express in Voice of the People my views regarding the veterans and their courage to serve our country. I recently attended the Veterans' Day Parade on Saturday with my 85-year-old father, Joseph R. Johnson.

 

 

Denise Hamm: A response

Trophies, medals, and awards are certainly perishable things. Yet, they are a simple way of rewarding hard work, ability, and success.

 

 

Chris Howard: Let it go, Gary

I enjoy the Dispatch.My favorite parts are the quiz, the letters and the comics. On Sundays I always read Rufus Ward and Shannon Bardwell.

 

 

Michael E. Williams: Supports The Eagles

I read Michael B. Dulaney's letter in Wednesday's paper about Victory Christian Academy's football team with some disappointment and have to question the timing here on the eve of the championship game.

 

 

Bob Raymond: Show your love for Tops in Blue

The U.S. Air Force Tops In Blue will again perform in Columbus this Friday evening on the MUW campus. I would like to propose that we express our gratitude and appreciation to all these fine young performers by bringing them a little homemade treat.

 

 

Michael B. Dulaney: 'Perishable things'

If you will examine the football conference that Victory plays or should I say has ruled the last three years, you will find the other Christian schools are decidedly smaller, less experienced and equipped. It's sad that Victory elects to pursue trophy's, perishable things, more than playing in another conference that's much more competitive.

 

 

Michelle Easterling and Jim Helveston: Support Marshall

It has been our honor and privilege to practice law with Bob Marshall, a candidate for Circuit Judge, Place Three, for a total of 37 years. We are proud to call him our business partner, but even more, our friend.

 

 

Thomas (Tom) Harris: Supports Kitchens

It is a shame that a very qualified and long-serving judge has to be drawn into the political arena having to be criticized and somewhat slandered. My wife and I have both been called for jury duty with Judge Kitchens presiding, he has always treated all those in his courtroom with the utmost respect, fairness, dignity, and compassion.

 

 

Barthel D. Waggoner: Cowbells

Recently I read about Coach Dan Mullen of Mississippi State University telling the student body to respect the ruling on ringing cowbells at football games.

 

 

Vicki Hill: Supports Coleman

Lee Coleman and his wife, Peggy, are personal friends of mine. We share West Point as our hometown.

 

 

John Gaskin: Supports Marshall for judge

For those not aware, a new circuit judgeship has been created--Place Three--that serves Oktibbeha, Clay, Lowndes and Noxubee Counties. The candidates for this position must reside in Clay or Noxubee counties but will serve all four counties.

 

 

James Clayton Terry: To the mayor of Crawford

Dear Mayor Tolon: I bear witness to all the troubles that your city has undergone for longer than I can remember.

 

 

Bill Wells: Stinky land deal

I have no idea what the "going rate" for prime farmland is in this area, but research on the 'net shows me that prime farmland in Illinois is averaging $5,000 per acre.

 

 

Gary A. Chism: 'Fire Nancy Pelosi!'

Since 2007, when Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of The US House of Representatives, our national debt has risen $5 trillion. Let's get a perspective of how much money a trillion dollars represents.

 

 

Roy Edward Grubb: Childers vs. Nunnelee

I want to thank Travis Childers for the letter I received Monday, Oct. 25, in the mail. If the people think Nunnelee is going to win the election, better think differently.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Political endorsements

It's a shame and a sad commentary on people and today's politics when "loyal subscribers" and "close friends" get so bent out of shape over a newspaper's endorsement of ANY candidate that they cancel a subscription or refuse to look the publisher in the face.

 

 

Doug Warren: Lights needed

There is a great need for overhead lighting on the 82 Bypass east of Military Road exit to Highway 50 exit.

 

 

Christine White: Supports Coleman

I've been a citizen of Clay County my entire life, and despite a strong interest in local politics, I have never taken pen in hand to write on behalf of a candidate for a particular race because I feel there has never been so qualified and deserving a candidate as Lee Coleman for Place 3 of the 16th Circuit Court.

 

 

Mrs. Theo J. Gordon: Thanks for support

Covenant Presbyterian Church wishes to acknowledge the open-hearted giving of the people of Columbus at our annual yard sale on Oct. 16 that was for the benefit of a small boy named Ben and his family who live near Mobile.

 

 

Nina Peele: Supports Starks

The residents of Oktibbeha, Lowndes, Clay and Noxubee have the opportunity to elect a new judge in the Place 1 race. I strongly urge you to vote for William Starks.
