Many thanks to Officer Bo Pearson for helping me!



Voice of the people: Gary Holtman

There has been a big hullabaloo in the news lately about the Secret Service agents and their liaisons with prostitutes in a foreign country. These people are supposed to be well-educated and intelligent, even before being educated.



A letter from the chief

To the Citizens of Columbus: I am humbled by the honor to lead one of the best and brightest police departments in the State of Mississippi. Anyone who reads the paper and sees the news shouldn't be surprised that our department has been tested and criticized in recent months.

Letter to the Editor: Takes issue with columnist's assertions on race

Celebrate Starkville public schools.



John D. Acker: Appreciates positive Dispatch

A rose and a "thank you" to The Commercial Dispatch for a wonderful change (from my perspective).



Cameron Triplett: Doing what's right for children and society

There is no one simple cure-all answer to the problem of welfare children.



Cameron Triplett: The 'R' word

I find it disgusting that some think that racism still exists to the extent that when someone doesn't get their way, their opponent of another race must automatically be racist.



Selvain McQueen: Aggrieved by thorn

In 1776, Thomas Jefferson wrote a well-known document, "The Declaration of Independence," in which he summarized the ideals of individual liberty that had been expressed by John Locke and the Continental philosophers. Jefferson set forth a list of grievances against the king in order to justify, before the world, the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother country.



Claude Simpson: Moonshine, a business opportunity

The article and column in Sunday's paper about the fellows who got caught making moonshine was very interesting and further shows how economic development is stifled in our state.

It is very exciting that the presidential primary in Mississippi is important this year. Because the nomination has yet to be decided, we have an opportunity to help elect the next Republican nominee. Mississippi citizens should take this very seriously.

This baseball season at MSU brings a new student entity to campus, The Dudes.



Heath Fisackerly : An open letter to the superintendent

My name is Heath Fisackerly and I am a sophomore at Columbus High School. I am extremely disappointed in the board's decision to terminate the contracts of teachers throughout the district. I was at the board meeting Monday the 12th of February and I couldn't understand a word being said.



Kayla Tew: The people have spoken on personhood

To the members of the Mississippi House Constitution Committee: On Nov. 8, 2011, Mississippi spoke on the issue of personhood. Fifty-eight percent of our great state voted down Initiative 26. Our citizens were well-informed when they voted. We were not mislead or influenced by scare tactics. We knew that personhood is not right for our state, nor is it right for any state.



Woodrow "Woodie" Howell : School funding

What happened to all the tax money from the casinos that was supposed to go to the school system?



Patti Drapala: Excited about the caucuses

I routinely sleep late on weekends, but I won't on Feb. 18, which is this Saturday. Mississippi Democrats are holding their statewide precinct caucuses that day, and for the first time, I plan to participate at the basic level of the selection process for president of the United States.
