Selvain McQueen: Be Part of the Solution

Citizens, churches, neighborhood leaders, government officials, philanthropists, and educators must all pitch in with law enforcement to improve quality of life issues within the City of Columbus.

 

 

Cynthia Schafer: Concerns about PERS

 

 

Robert Ford: In support of Dolph Bryan

 

 

Eulalie Davis: Congratulations

The Council of Columbus Garden Clubs extends their congratulations to the recently appointed Director of the Columbus Convention and Visitor Bureau, Nancy Carpenter.

 

 

Robert M. Ford: Time for a fresh approach

With the economy in question; heavy bond issues for the hospital; and needed school support, it was no surprise that an $8 million-plus bond issue for a new police building failed to pass.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: How long will our republic last?

In Thursday's edition Susan Estrich had an oped titled "Real change" on Don't Ask, Don't Tell. She doubts that a President McCain or VP Palin would have signed this legislation allowing homosexuals to openly serve in the military.

 

 

Benjamin D. Lang: 'Vote yes on Sept. 27'

I applaud this board of alderman for taking a patient and thoughtful approach in deciding how to build a new police station. No one has ever debated that we badly need to build a police station, but most in this community have strong feelings about how it should be built.

 

 

Jay D'Abramo: Starkville needs new police station

It's time for us to move forward and build a police station. For 10 years now we've battled each other as a community over questions like "where should it be?" and "how much should it cost?" These are fair questions to ask but not at the expense of being able to meet a need that is too obvious to ignore.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Takes issue with mother's comment

In Sunday's reader comment section there were three comments on the bomb threats at local schools recently. A "sheatherly" needs a reality check, and as a former first responder, I would like to enlighten her.

 

 

Hillary Eddlemon: In defense of Tennessee Williams

In response to Mr. Duncan's letter ("Thinks Williams should be downplayed," Voice of the people, Sept. 8) and The Dispatch poll regarding Tennessee Williams, I would like to state my personal disbelief at the ignorance of a legendary author and playwright.

 

 

VIDEO: Reliving 9/11

The following is a selection of edited responses to our call for readers' recollections of Sept. 11, 2001. For space reasons, we were not able to print all of the submissions.

 

 

Deirdra Harris Glover: Remember by doing

I spent Sept. 11, 2001, as much of the world did: on the Internet, sharing in the global outpouring of shock and grief. I will never forget the juxtaposition of the ruined skyscrapers against an appalling blue sky. Americans of all backgrounds queued to give blood, to donate, to enlist in an imminent war. Others sought ways to serve at home through national service.

 

 

Wesley Duncan: Thinks Williams should be downplayed

I am a daily reader of The Dispatch. I am a Starkville native as well. For years, I have heard about Columbus being the birthplace of Tennessee Williams. I have never drawn an interest to finding out who he was until recently when I saw your frontpage headline with his picture.

 

 

Haley Salazar: Appreciate all who made primary elections a success

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who had a part in conducting our primary elections in Lowndes County.

 

 

Mary Lee Beal: The need for a new police station

As most people are aware, the citizens of this community on Sept. 27 are being provided an opportunity to support an issue that is absolutely vital to the continued growth of Starkville.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Schools need changing

I agree with Mr. Wiseman that our school system isn't the best that it could be. For years I have advocated changing from our agrarian-based school year to something more modern and more practical.

 

 

Tina Morgan: Local hero

One of my brothers turned 60 in February. I often think about how age gaps seem to diminish as we get older. Jeff is 14 years older than I, which is almost another generation, but now I don't really think about him as being so much older. There's another brother between us who is 53.

 

 

Patrick Swartz: A Marine checking in

 

 

Billy Williams: Supports Harris for sheriff

 

 

Carl Lee: Appreciating grandparents
