Helen Sue Parish: Concerned

I have been extremely concerned with the tone of things in this country, especially with the killings of innocent people, including a 9-year-old girl, in Tucson.

 

 

John Imes: One family

On New Year's Eve in Alexandria, Egypt, a bomb went off at Coptic Christian church during a worship service, killing 21 people.

 

 

Saul Vydas: Corporate welfare

A recent edition of the Dispatch had an article by Alan Sayre about competition among the Southern states to attract businesses.

 

 

Eulalie Davis: Notable omission

I was mortified when I read "The Year in Review--Notable Deaths" and did not see any reference to Chebie Bateman. I read the article three times thinking that I had surely missed something.

 

 

Carl A. Lee : Wants to see more African-Americans in leadership positions

In recent days, I have been thinking about our "Friendly City" and considering our progress and collective problems. Moreover, we have lately through the leadership of the Mayor and City Council made significant progress in clearing dilapidated houses throughout the city. However, while removing these eyesores is a positive, we have some significant problems festering.

 

 

Frances Barham: Our Christmas eve story

It was mid afternoon on Christmas Eve, 2010. I needed to run an errand in town.

 

 

William Hairston: Pray for peace

In this season when Christians celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace, when they sing of Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men, there is no peace.

 

 

Gary Chesser: Starkville's city hall

Last week, I had an opportunity to tour Starkville's city hall.

 

 

Larry Smith: Repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell' a travesty

Legislation repealing the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy has turned the United States military into a new front for social and cultural experimentation.

 

 

John Imes: Concerned about stray arrows

I was walking the Riverwalk recently. Leaving the paved way to walk the path that follows the raised ridge on the side, I was surprised to see a fellow in camouflage walking along with his compound bow.

 

 

Amy Martin: 'A blessing for us all'

As you may know, our school has been selling Y-ties to raise money for Jeffery Amos, a 5th grader at our school, who was recently diagnosed with cancer and is in St. Jude's Hospital, fighting this terrible disease.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: The fate of small towns

It's great that Columbus is doing something to help its downtown area become vibrant again, and that's all well and good. However, there are many small towns in the Golden Triangle and surrounding area that are dying, drying up, and disappearing from view.

 

 

Raymond Gross: 'Old Reliable'

While growing up in a coal mining town in southeast Kentucky, I became very familiar with the L&N Railroad Co.

 

 

Nan Morrow: Thank you, Annie

Earlier this month in our annual Christmas card, our paper carrier noted she would be retiring from delivering our paper.

 

 

Gary Holtman: The Postal Service and other matters

Two people have commented to me in the past two days that they had not read any of my letters recently. My response to then was, "Nothing has aggravated me enough lately to bore the public." That changed today, so, I'll hit on a few items.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Agrees with columnist

Uh oh! Either liberals are agreeing with me (my preference) or I'm agreeing with liberals! Or, as Al Gore put it, "Down is up, and up is down."

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Just a game

William Brasher has filed a lawsuit against Brent Vowell for hitting him with a cowbell after a ballgame won by State, which both men attended.

 

 

Mark Bean: The ever underrated Leslie Frazier

Great article on Leslie Frazier. It looks like he's off to a good start. Leslie has always been the consummate overachiever. At every stage of his development/career, he has performed well above expectations.

 

 

Shawn Parker: Thanks for help with shoebox mission

I would like to express appreciation to our mayor, city council, and city department heads and employees for helping last Monday with the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox collection effort. First Baptist Church serves as a Collection Center for this ministry and received over 18,500 shoeboxes this year from the surrounding region.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Entitlements

There are many "third-rail/sacred cows" in politics.
