A death that could have been prevented

I am the only sister to John A. Hall, formerly of Columbus. On July 1, 2010 my brother was on his motorcycle traveling down Highway 45 North.

 

 

Disagrees with judge's gay marriage ruling

Openly gay Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker's decision to overturn the voter approved Proposition 8, that defines marriage as between one man and one woman in California, slices at the jugular of true democracy.

 

 

Disagrees with councilman on four-day work week

I disagree will the comments by Charlie Box concerning the four-day work week by the public works in the July 20 issue of the Dispatch. As a local business owner, we benefit from four-day work weeks by simply being able to keep our work trucks off the road for one day, especially during the current recession.

 

 

Questions about gas pricing

Either I, and others in our community, needs to be educated on how gasoline at the pumps is priced or our local gas stations are price gouging.

 

 

Congratulations

I wish more people, young and not-so-young, had Timmy Lind's drive, determination, and focus.

 

 

Letter: Disappointed with Gerhart

 

 

Concerns about river bridge

As mayor of the City of Columbus and on behalf of the City Council, we are asking the citizens of Columbus and surrounding areas to refrain from using the old river bridge, located at the Riverwalk, as a diving board. We are concerned that someone will be seriously injured.

 

 

Red Cross in Oktibbeha County

I'd like to set the record straight regarding recent news stories about the status of the American Red Cross office in Oktibbeha County. In particular, I want to correct the misperception that the Red Cross is abandoning Oktibbeha County. Nothing could be further from the truth.

 

 

Remembering one who made a difference

I looked up to Mr. John Harry Thomas, who passed away May 31, 2010, as an older brother role model since the age of 5.

 

 

Concerned about census

Have you been counted in the Census? There appears to be whole neighborhoods missing from the census log books.

 

 

Letters: Negative impact of bypass should be considered

The construction of a highway bypass is not an apathetic event for a city as unfortunately some were reported to have felt in your article of Friday, June 18th.

 

 

Letter: Thankful for new park

The impact of the community park and recreational area located on Shady Lane will provide a safety and community-based location for the adults as well as the youth in the surrounding area.

 

 

Thinks Omnova strikers unreasonable

Ethel et al. (The writer is referring to online bloggers. ed.) seem to think that Omnova exists just to give them a paycheck just because "I've been here 30 years and they can't cut my salary or benefits. Boo hoo.

 

 

Letters: The Legend of John Thomas A.k.a--BB--The Sheriff of Seventh Avenue

As we remember this man of our time -- husband, father, and friend.

 

 

Blame it on parenting, not guns

Kamal Karriem says that Columbus has a "gun problem." That is the typical short-sighted liberal Democrat spin on the problem.

 

 

A mother remembers

To many, Memorial Day is just another day off from work, a time to have a picnic with family and friends and a time to enjoy a long weekend. What lies behind Memorial Day is another thing, though. The holiday is a time for us to commemorate the lives of those who died in military service, protecting our American freedom.

 

 

Setting the record straight

Last Sunday's Commercial Dispatch contained an article regarding the disposition of cases in the Lowndes County Circuit Court, wherein a Carl A. Lee was listed as having been sentenced for false pretense. This

 

 

Remembering Lee High

I felt a pang of sadness or regret -- or perhaps nostalgia -- when I read that Lee High School is going to be shuttered. I was a member of the class of 1992, the final class to graduate from the school before its consolidation with Caldwell.

 

 

A town with much to celebrate

The following e-mail comes from Jim Neely of Columbus. Neely's daughter, Paula Krantz, who lives in Los Angeles, sent to friends and relatives. Most of you know I am from Mississippi, but not all of you know I am from the city of Columbus. I want to share with you some historical information about my hometown and its relation to this upcoming holiday, Memorial Day.

 

 

Recovery Act opportunities

For the past three years, I've worked as an estimator and project manager for a commercial roofing contractor in Fort Worth, Texas. During this time, I've had the opportunity to participate in and oversee several construction projects that fall under the highly publicized and hotly debated Recovery Act.
