Letter to the Editor: Corrections commissioner responds to Judge Kitchens' comments

With regards to the article entitled "Judge Kitchens frustrated with state sentencing laws" which ran in your paper on June 9, 2012, 1 would like to offer additional information and facts that were not covered in the story. The task before MDOC daily is to provide quality security, custody, control and care to 22,000 offenders currently locked up and an additional 38,503 offenders under the supervision of community corrections.



Letter to the Editor: Opposes garage sale ordinances

Sustainability leader and Starkville Alderman Jeremiah Dumas is proposing a garage sale ordinance. The ordinance means police must enforce it and clerks must handle the paperwork. A study in Carney Point, NJ, showed that permit revenue fell far short of meeting administrative/enforcement expense. That could happen in Starkville.



Letter to the Editor: Of patriotism and 'fat cats'

Just as cooks like to combine seemingly incompatible flavors into tasty and agreeable dishes, I enjoy making apparently opposite ideas into productive or provocative thought.

In my 40 years as a resident here, I have heard praise and criticism of Oktibbeha County Hospital. Often, pros and cons are part of the subjective nature of hospital experiences whether it is a renowned world-class medical center or a more traditional facility primarily servicing a community or region.

In "State puts CMSD early-release plans in jeopardy," June 19 headline, if assumptions were holes in Swiss cheese, then the article was full of them.

Ah huh, so "journalists" are professionals who report & record the news, events of history as they happen w/o bias. Maybe once upon a time ...



Voice of the people: Frank M. Davis

Our Oktibbeha County Hospital Regional Medical Center is at a real crossroad. Many of you are aware that our Oktibbeha County Supervisors are considering selling or leasing "Our" Oktibbeha County Hospital (OCH) Regional Medical Center to an out of town private organization.

Letter to the Editor: Fond memories of days gone by

My wife and I returned to Columbus May 4th and 5th for the S. D. Lee High 50's Reunion. What a delightful weekend with many classmates whom I had not seen since their graduation in 1950. Everything was planned so carefully to make sure that those of us who had been away from our hometown for many years could easily attend each event.

Party affiliation irrelevant in local races For years I have wondered just what political party affiliation had to do with a candidate's ability to be a good sheriff, judge, coroner, school superintendent, DA or any other elected position that has nothing to do with politics. I think that school superintendents should be hired by local school boards, with qualifications established by a state board.

Saggy pants are a fad, a fashion craze. I think it's crazy, but it's an in-your-face expression of rebellion. I find it disgusting and highly offensive. I would like to carry a can of lighter fluid around to squirt on the seats of nasty underwear exposed to view, but unfortunately my right to be offended stops at everybody else's nose.
