Voice of the people: Jeffrey J. Turnage

I was quite disappointed with the inaccuracies in Jeff Clark's article Sunday, which reported on a lawsuit against Mayor Robert Smith, Brandy Gardner and Kennetra Floyd filed by a Monique Montgomery in an attempt to force the Mayor's Youth Council (MYC) to take her daughter on a trip to Hattiesburg.

 

 

Voice of the people: Laird Bagnall

As a result of House Republicans holding the debt ceiling hostage and refusing to raise the debt limit in the summer of 2011 (paying the bills they had already approved)...the United States credit rating was immediately lowered, causing borrowing costs to increase for everyone and slowing growth.

The CPD took less than three hours to spend $10,000 of tax-payer money to "buy back" firearms from the public. At $20 for airguns, that's at most 500 non-lethal items, and at $300 for "assault"-style weapons, that's at most 33 firearms, so between 33 and 500 items were "bought back."

 

 

Voice of the people: Groups oppose school consolidation

On behalf of parents of children in the Starkville School District (SSD), we oppose House Bill 716, which provides for consolidation of the Starkville School District and the Oktibbeha County School District (OCSD).

 

 

Letter to the editor: Billy Coleman

As an avid MSU fan and basketball season ticket holder for the past 30 years I take issue with the thorn you awarded to MSU athletic director Scott Sticklin in Sunday's paper.

Slim Smith got a couple of things right in his column 01-25-13, "What were they thinking?" For one thing, no state needs a commission or committee to determine if an act of Congress or the president or anybody else is unconstitutional. Anybody with half a brain and no political bias can determine that for themselves. Our governor and state attorney general should be able to handle that little chore, if they just would.

 

 

Voice of the people: Leslie Peel

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?"' Many citizens in our community responded to that question on Saturday by volunteering their time to serve our community during the third annual MLK Day of Service, coordinated by the United Way Community Volunteer Center and hosted in part by Dream 365.

 

 

Martha Graham: Fracking poem

This is a poem about a small town, whose aldermen decided to let them down.

 

 

John Imes: Ways to better understand fracking

Anyone who is concerned about the recent news that hydrofracking is happening in Lowndes County may very well feel overwhelmed or helpless as though facing an incoming tidal wave. Maybe we ask, "What can I do?" Or maybe we're confused and don't know who to trust. "The people with the oil and gas industry say it's safe. The Caledonia board of aldermen seem to think it's safe. Other people say it's terrible. Who should I trust?"

 

 

Bo Diermann: Common sense and fracking

People with little knowledge of the petroleum industry or the technology used are expressing their views and opinions as if they were proven facts. If you watch a biased movie or prejudiced documentary, you are now a bona-fide expert in the field of oil and gas drilling and completion techniques. Besides being of profound knowledge, you pass judgment and condemn the business and the industry for generating profits for their shareholders, creating jobs thus reducing unemployment.
