It not typical for The Dispatch to publish snarky, anonymous articles. Yet on Friday there it was, "Is Hazel in charge of the Columbus Soccer Complex?"

Reading your opinion in Wednesday's paper on the increasing expense of the GED test, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
The Commercial Dispatch was a great impetus to the success of the Tennessee Williams Tribute and Tour of Victorian Homes this year.
I had to write to encourage everyone in Columbus to go see "The Rose Tattoo" during The Tennessee Williams Tribute this week.
The current education system was set up 300 years ago, and it fit the country well then, but no longer.
