Rockey Allen: County crews

This week I traveled over 300 miles of road in Lowndes County and observed the county road crews cutting as much grass on private property as on county right of way.

 

 

J.B. Berry: Fabulous weekend

My wife and I and another couple have just returned from three days in your wonderful town.

 

 

Helen Sue Parrish: Supports Starks

I would like to encourage you to consider voting for Williams Starks for Circuit Judge, Place 1 on Nov. 2.

 

 

Raymond Gross: Childers and the Fair Tax

Well, my suspicions have been confirmed that Mr. Childers is a federal income tax loving liberal. The proof came from his own lips. While claming to be a "Conservative Blue Dog" he admitted that he is against the Fair Tax Bill which is absolutely a conservative issue, so why doesn't Mr. Childers support it?

 

 

Robert Corbell: Unhappy with head librarian

Alice, it is time to go. We don't want you, we don't need you. In the short time of one ear, you have caused serious, and probably irreparable damage to the collections of the Columbus Public Library.

 

 

Claude Simpson: Joe Higgins makes how much?

It is no wonder that our state always sucks the hind one. When a low-level functionary position such as the one held by Mr. Higgins earns such salaries (Higgins makes $220,00 per year plus the potential to make $30,000 in bonuses), it is obvious why we have no money for better education and other needed things like fixing the holes in the streets.

 

 

Alice Shands: Library friends

October 17-23, 2010, is National Friends of Libraries week making it a good time to publicly thank the Friends of the Columbus-Lowndes Library who contribute so much of their time and expertise to significantly enhance our services.

 

 

Donna Stark: Similar names, different men

Lately my husband, Bill Stark, has been asked if he is the William Starks who is running for judge. People frequently call our home asking for Mr. Starks, and we also get mail sent to our address for the attorney William Starks. Confusion of the two names is understandable as both men are attorneys.

 

 

Carolyn Hennessee: A new appreciation

A week ago, we said goodbye to our military friends as we left our fourth CAFB reunion headed for our homes in Florida, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas. We had decided that this year would be a great time to visit Columbus.

 

 

The Cadence Bank train wreck

I wanted to thank you for the article on Lewis Mallory and Cadence Bank. I think they are well written and give a good background into problems that lead to the bank failure. Mr. Mallory said he loved the bank, started as an intern and worked his way to the top, so how could he let this good institution go to the dogs.

 

 

'Practice what you preach'

My name is Laura Corley. I am pursuing a degree at Mississippi University for Women in political science with a minor in women's studies. As the mid-term elections quickly approach, I am growing more and more concerned with the current congressional race.

 

 

Serving like apostles

On Sunday, Sept. 19th, Columbus Lowndes Habitat for Humanity had the opportunity to dedicate our 36th home built to the Lang family. This family lost everything in a fire in January.

 

 

Letter: 'Fair tax is possible'

Over the past week, many readers and writers have weighed in about the now infamous anonymous contribution in an ad ran by the campaign of Travis Childers. Was this a mistake? Yes. Was this the first or last time this will happen in politics? No. What has happened is a great opportunity to discuss the merits of a "fair tax" has started to slip away.

 

 

Letter: Thank you, responders

 

 

Takes issue with anonymous comments

As a rule I am anything but valiant. However, when writing an opinion to the newspaper, it is a point of honor to put on my big-girl pants and sign my name.

 

 

Supports Nunnelee

Travis Childers, our Congressman from the 1st District, says in his TV ad, "I've done what I said I'd do."

 

 

A need for more compassion

I read with interest the comments made by District Attorney Forrest Allgood regarding the testimony given by Jim Kitchens at the sentencing hearing of Quintez Hodges. I know nothing about the case of Quintez Hodges. According to what I have read in the paper, Quintez Hodges is most likely a dangerous man, and he deserves punishment for his crimes.

 

 

DA takes issue with online comments

I have been appalled by the number of reckless comments that have been attached to the story about Quintez Hodges' appeal. Some comments border on the hysterical. Some may have been uttered in ignorance. I suspect that more than a few were the product of malice. The comments call for an immediate response.

 

 

Remembering POWs and MIAs

As we pause today in honor of POW/MIA Remembrance Day, I would like to focus your thoughts on this ostentatious gathering.
