John Gaskin: Supports Marshall for judge

For those not aware, a new circuit judgeship has been created--Place Three--that serves Oktibbeha, Clay, Lowndes and Noxubee Counties. The candidates for this position must reside in Clay or Noxubee counties but will serve all four counties.

 

 

James Clayton Terry: To the mayor of Crawford

Dear Mayor Tolon: I bear witness to all the troubles that your city has undergone for longer than I can remember.

 

 

Bill Wells: Stinky land deal

I have no idea what the "going rate" for prime farmland is in this area, but research on the 'net shows me that prime farmland in Illinois is averaging $5,000 per acre.

 

 

Gary A. Chism: 'Fire Nancy Pelosi!'

Since 2007, when Nancy Pelosi was elected Speaker of The US House of Representatives, our national debt has risen $5 trillion. Let's get a perspective of how much money a trillion dollars represents.

 

 

Roy Edward Grubb: Childers vs. Nunnelee

I want to thank Travis Childers for the letter I received Monday, Oct. 25, in the mail. If the people think Nunnelee is going to win the election, better think differently.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Political endorsements

It's a shame and a sad commentary on people and today's politics when "loyal subscribers" and "close friends" get so bent out of shape over a newspaper's endorsement of ANY candidate that they cancel a subscription or refuse to look the publisher in the face.

 

 

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.
