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.

Voice of the people: Billy Wilemon, Jr.

Nunnelee does not represent people of Mississippi This is in response to the letter (editorial, advertisement?) from Hon. Alan Nunnelee published in another local newspaper on 12/16/12.

 

 

Voice of the people: Cameron Triplett

My hottest "hot button" issue is the fallacy of "gun control." Those who wail for "more gun control" need to sober up, step back, take a deep breath, and look at some facts. Don't think it can happen here? Don't bet your children's freedom on it.

 

 

Voice of the people: Fred B. Hall

Recently the Columbus Country Club was sold at auction to East Mississippi Community College (EMCC). Up until this sale there were only two other golf courses located in the Columbus area, Elm Lake and Green Oaks. The three golf courses were not adversarial and each offered their members something different. This has all suddenly changed.

 

 

Voice of the people: Gary Holtman

We are having, as a nation, quite a gridlock in our nation's capitol. The House has submitted several budgets, the Senate has rejected them, but, has not submitted one of their own.

 

 

Voice of the people: Tom Harris

Let me try to understand this situation where Ms. Liles embezzles half a million dollars, and gets a sentence of 30 months with only 16 to serve.

 

 

Voice of the people: Nadia Dale

Your facts are wrong. I'm not resigning. Recently The Dispatch published an editorial expressing concern about my commitment to the Columbus Convention & Visitors Bureau Board. I recognize the importance of constructive criticism, especially in public service. Yet I still feel compelled to provide more information about the facts regarding my attendance and voting at meetings.

 

 

Voice of the people: Claude Simpson

I respond to Slim Smith's column of Nov. 30, "Decorating a sinking ship." For your information the dropout prevention program as proposed by Dr. Liddell and the preparation to pass G.E.D. testing are horses of a different color.
