Raymond Gross: Supports Newt

Let me tell you about the man I endorse for president.



Cameron Triplett: Teachers and the health of towns

It is a sad situation when anyone must be terminated due to lack of funds, especially those who's job is educating our youth. Education is key not only to their future, but that of our nation as well.



Toni Caldwell: Disgraceful behavior

The way that some board members of the CVB, employees and elected officials attending the meetings conduct themselves is a disgrace to Columbus and deserving of chastisement from citizens.



Jack White: A letter to city judges

Dear Judge Marc Amos and Judge Nicole Clinkscales: More than 60 households in The Northside Neighborhood Watch have realized that citizens must accept responsibility for the quality of life in Columbus.



Robert A. White: War on drugs a failure

The city is experiencing a increase in crime, and burglary is just one aspect. I attended the Jan. 17 city council meeting. Police Chief McQueen is concerned about the level to which crime in the city has risen.



Selby Parker: Response to column

"Absent fathers: King's Dream?" by Scott Colom was featured in the Clarion-Ledger on Sunday, Jan. 29 and twice referenced Mississippi in regards to absentee fathers.



Cameron Triplett: One root cause of crime

Just as there is no one cause for the crime in Columbus, or anywhere else, there is no one solution, either. The economy is surely one, but it is not beyond the control of "the man on the street."



Jack H. White: Appreciates response of public officials

The Northside Neighborhood Watch has been successful in securing positive and productive resolutions of problems and concerns through Councilman Kabir Karriem, the City Council, Mayor Smith, and numerous officials and department heads.



Cameron Triplett: Guns and accidents



John Imes: A symbol of new hope



Paul Mims: Concurs with column

Leonard Pitts, I read with interest your column "The Hidden Cost of War" in the Thursday Jan. 19 Commercial Dispatch. As usual, you presented a thoughtful, thought-provoking view of a controversial subject.



Mayor Robert E. Smith Sr.: City is taking steps to combat crime

I, as Mayor, and the City Council are very concerned about the burglaries, home invasions, larceny, theft, illegal use of drugs and homicides that have occurred in the past four to five months.



Chris Howard: Takes exception to column

I grew frustrated reading Birney Imes' Saturday rant about the Iraq war. My frustration resulted from Mr. Imes' repetition of the empty assertion that the Iraq war was a pointless endeavor. It seems obvious to me that a cursory examination of the state of the world 10 years ago and a comparison to today would lead anyone to at least acknowledge that some positive changes in the world have resulted from our Iraq efforts.



Our View: Things to do before year's end

Santa has finished with his annual checklist. Now it's time we make ours. As the year winds down, there's still plenty to do before we ring in a new year. The website Money Talks News offers "13 Smart Things to Do Before Year-end."



Billie Noland: Takes exception to use of the word 'ridiculous'

Dear Mr. Imes, I just finished reading your article, "The spirit of Christmas lights" in today's paper. I always read and enjoy your articles. However, today I was disappointed by a remark that a friend of yours made about the lights on the house across from (and what will be again) Cal-City Grocery in Caledonia. Your friend thinks the display of lights is "ridiculous." I imagine there may be others that feels the same way your friend feels.



Roy Grubb: Police interview

You could tell by the candidate from Washington and the one from Chicago was not going anywhere. Washington candidate talked all about himself and the candidate from Chicago could not hear or understand the questions asked.



Cameron Triplett: Take a bite out of crime: Legalize marijuana

I'm a conservative first with libertarian leanings and a little bit of liberal in me. Robert Koehler's column "Public Enemy No. 1" (in Tuesday's Dispatch) was very interesting. I grew up being taught the evils of marijuana and other "recreational" drugs. I still wish people wouldn't destroy their and others' lives with drugs, especially addictive ones. It is a dead-end road.



Joe Dillon: Police chief interviews

The televised interviews for the position of Columbus police chief will be rebroadcast on Channel 3 on CableOne the next three nights beginning at 6.



Erma Sanders: Wonderful experience

Listening to the interviews for police chief of Columbus was such a wonderful experience.



Gary Holtman: Retirement funds
