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.

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.

 

 

Explaining a 'necessary evil'

My predecessor once told me that "you can go from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows." He was oh so right with that statement. It's just something about getting into a person's pocketbook that brings out a different side of them that you've never met before.

 

 

Appreciates support

On behalf of United Way of Lowndes County, we would like to say a huge thank you to all the companies and volunteers who made our "Day to Care" possible on Sept. 9.

 

 

Letter: Appreciates kindness from an 'angel of mercy'

On Aug. 21, I was a passenger on Delta Flight 174 from Atlanta to Amsterdam with my final destination being Berlin where I was to visit my son for two weeks.

 

 

Letter: In defense of Oktibbeha County schools

I think that it is unfair to state that Starkville schools rank better than Oktibbeha in scores that compare schools nationwide.

 

 

Letter: Think Barbour would make a great president

If (the biggest word in the English language) memory serves me correctly Steve Mullen came here from California.

 

 

Letter: Caledonia's jewel of a library

My family has lived in Caledonia for over 12 years now.

 

 

Musings on newspapers and how they are changing

As the Internet gets more and more common, even dinosaurs like me are becoming comfortable using it. At the same time, various methods of print media are fading from use.

 

 

Sidewalk plans comply with city rules

Let's set the record straight. In the August 30th edition of "readers comment," an anonymous posting asked questions about the sidewalk conflict at GTP&DD in Starkville.

 

 

Letter: Too many attack ads

Attack ads and negative campaigning have become all too common in the United States.

 

 

Letter: Reunited via the Internet

My husband and I are from Enterprise.

 

 

Starkville sidewalks: 'We must begin somewhere'

Editor's note: Columbus City Council has passed a sidewalk ordinance that would require (when feasible) the building of sidewalks in any new development. Both the sidewalk ordinance and the Senior Enrichment Center are seeking to provide a positive impact within our city. Support for one does not indicate opposition for the other. In fact they should go hand in hand.

 

 

Unions have outlived their usefulness

Steve Moore raised several good points in his letter supporting the right of labor unions to strike (Voice of the people, Aug. 25).
