Doug Warren: Lights needed

There is a great need for overhead lighting on the 82 Bypass east of Military Road exit to Highway 50 exit.

 

 

Christine White: Supports Coleman

I've been a citizen of Clay County my entire life, and despite a strong interest in local politics, I have never taken pen in hand to write on behalf of a candidate for a particular race because I feel there has never been so qualified and deserving a candidate as Lee Coleman for Place 3 of the 16th Circuit Court.

 

 

Mrs. Theo J. Gordon: Thanks for support

Covenant Presbyterian Church wishes to acknowledge the open-hearted giving of the people of Columbus at our annual yard sale on Oct. 16 that was for the benefit of a small boy named Ben and his family who live near Mobile.

 

 

Nina Peele: Supports Starks

The residents of Oktibbeha, Lowndes, Clay and Noxubee have the opportunity to elect a new judge in the Place 1 race. I strongly urge you to vote for William Starks.

 

 

Dianne Bean: Supports library director

As a career librarian I can appreciate Alice Shand's management of the Columbus public library.

 

 

Clara Gilmer: Support for management and staff of library

We, the Board of Trustees of the Columbus-Lowndes Public Library, welcome input from all our patrons.

 

 

Benny Cooper: Joe Higgins' salary

After reading about Joe Higgins' $220,000 salary, I began wondering what fool or fools decided to pay this outrageous bloated salary to anyone in a public position, especially in today's economy.

 

 

George Gerhart: A Caledonia thank you

On behalf of the Town of Caledonia, I would like to say "Thank You" to our Caledonia Day Committee members, the community center hostesses and all of the vendors (food and others).

 

 

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.
