Harry Freeman: A rare moment

I've been going to Mississippi State football games for over 50 years. During that time I have not ever experienced anything as moving as Ms. Linda Bell, the mother of Nick Bell, going onto the field this past weekend during the pregame tribute to her son and ringing her cowbell after the "moment of silence" in memory of Nick.

 

 

Cameron Triplett Sr.: Two things ...

It is extremely immature for someone to go berserk and fight arrest to the point that he has to be tased and sprayed multiple times. It is not a sign of "toughness" but stupidity. And people wonder why some wind up in jail more often than others.

 

 

Stephanie Ward: Supports Porter

The simple fact that Lee Coleman has spent eight times as much as Nebra Porter campaigning yet only lead the Nov. 2 election by 8.4 percent of the vote speaks volumes for how experienced Coleman is as a politician.

 

 

Vicky Hill: Supports Coleman

Supports Coleman To Lowndes Countians: Thanks so much for your overwhelming support and vote for Lee Coleman for Circuit Court Judge Place 3 in the Nov. 2 election. As Lee's campaign manager, I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking with so many of you during this campaign. I again ask for your support and vote for Lee Coleman on Tuesday, Nov. 23 in the run-off election. Lee will fulfill this position as judge with the honor, dignity, and trust that you, the citizens, deserve and expect. Vote for Lee Coleman Circuit Court Judge on Tuesday, Nov. 23. Vicki Hill New Hope

 

 

Mark Duncan: A way to save money ignored

At the previous Starkville Board of Alderman meeting, a proposal was presented by Ward 3 Alderman Eric Parker to simply investigate the possible cost savings for the city by moving from the current method of garbage collection using the black trash bags to a wheeled bin. His preliminary research discovered there is the possibility of $600,000 in cost savings by making this move.

 

 

A.K. Rosenhan: Unhappy about parade fee

The GSDP (Greater Starkville Development Partnership) is organizing the Starkville Christmas parade. They are charging $25/entry. As the GSDP is a tax supported organization (with some interesting pay rates) and most, if not all, parade participants are charitable groups, churches, government reps, the question is why is there is a charge? What does it cost to organize a parade? Especially with personnel who are already being paid....again, by tax monies. It can't be a big project to organize a Christmas parade. And I would think a volunteer organization, service club, or some group would do it for free. Merry Christmas! A.K. Rosenhan Starkville

 

 

Thank you, Applebees

On behalf of the many veterans that your Neighborhood Grill fed free of charge on Nov. 11th, I want your staff to know how much this act of kindness was appreciated.

 

 

Cameron Triplett Sr.: Dead men voting

A Mississippi man was declared dead nearly 10 years ago, yet openly lived, and was even arrested, using his own name and ID information.

 

 

Gil Contreras: Note from a 'newspaper freak'

I was shocked when I was informed your newspaper raised it's copy price to 50 cents.

 

 

Disappointed by lack of support for veterans

I would like to voice my displeasure with some of the businesses and people in Columbus.

 

 

Gwen Lollar: Thinking of the sacrifices

I wanted to express in Voice of the People my views regarding the veterans and their courage to serve our country. I recently attended the Veterans' Day Parade on Saturday with my 85-year-old father, Joseph R. Johnson.

 

 

Denise Hamm: A response

Trophies, medals, and awards are certainly perishable things. Yet, they are a simple way of rewarding hard work, ability, and success.

 

 

Chris Howard: Let it go, Gary

I enjoy the Dispatch.My favorite parts are the quiz, the letters and the comics. On Sundays I always read Rufus Ward and Shannon Bardwell.

 

 

Michael E. Williams: Supports The Eagles

I read Michael B. Dulaney's letter in Wednesday's paper about Victory Christian Academy's football team with some disappointment and have to question the timing here on the eve of the championship game.

 

 

Bob Raymond: Show your love for Tops in Blue

The U.S. Air Force Tops In Blue will again perform in Columbus this Friday evening on the MUW campus. I would like to propose that we express our gratitude and appreciation to all these fine young performers by bringing them a little homemade treat.

 

 

Michael B. Dulaney: 'Perishable things'

If you will examine the football conference that Victory plays or should I say has ruled the last three years, you will find the other Christian schools are decidedly smaller, less experienced and equipped. It's sad that Victory elects to pursue trophy's, perishable things, more than playing in another conference that's much more competitive.

 

 

Michelle Easterling and Jim Helveston: Support Marshall

It has been our honor and privilege to practice law with Bob Marshall, a candidate for Circuit Judge, Place Three, for a total of 37 years. We are proud to call him our business partner, but even more, our friend.

 

 

Thomas (Tom) Harris: Supports Kitchens

It is a shame that a very qualified and long-serving judge has to be drawn into the political arena having to be criticized and somewhat slandered. My wife and I have both been called for jury duty with Judge Kitchens presiding, he has always treated all those in his courtroom with the utmost respect, fairness, dignity, and compassion.

 

 

Barthel D. Waggoner: Cowbells

Recently I read about Coach Dan Mullen of Mississippi State University telling the student body to respect the ruling on ringing cowbells at football games.

 

 

Vicki Hill: Supports Coleman

Lee Coleman and his wife, Peggy, are personal friends of mine. We share West Point as our hometown.
