Blame it on parenting, not guns

Kamal Karriem says that Columbus has a "gun problem." That is the typical short-sighted liberal Democrat spin on the problem.

 

 

A mother remembers

To many, Memorial Day is just another day off from work, a time to have a picnic with family and friends and a time to enjoy a long weekend. What lies behind Memorial Day is another thing, though. The holiday is a time for us to commemorate the lives of those who died in military service, protecting our American freedom.

 

 

Setting the record straight

Last Sunday's Commercial Dispatch contained an article regarding the disposition of cases in the Lowndes County Circuit Court, wherein a Carl A. Lee was listed as having been sentenced for false pretense. This

 

 

Remembering Lee High

I felt a pang of sadness or regret -- or perhaps nostalgia -- when I read that Lee High School is going to be shuttered. I was a member of the class of 1992, the final class to graduate from the school before its consolidation with Caldwell.

 

 

A town with much to celebrate

The following e-mail comes from Jim Neely of Columbus. Neely's daughter, Paula Krantz, who lives in Los Angeles, sent to friends and relatives. Most of you know I am from Mississippi, but not all of you know I am from the city of Columbus. I want to share with you some historical information about my hometown and its relation to this upcoming holiday, Memorial Day.

 

 

Recovery Act opportunities

For the past three years, I've worked as an estimator and project manager for a commercial roofing contractor in Fort Worth, Texas. During this time, I've had the opportunity to participate in and oversee several construction projects that fall under the highly publicized and hotly debated Recovery Act.

 

 

Letters: A name for sports park

We feel serious consideration should be given to naming the complex in honor of Leslie Frazier.

 

 

A few things

Due to a recent reporting of a rash of disciplinary action(s) being taken on students in the USA because of various displays of our American Flag, I am enclosing copies of my Great Grandfather Frederick Brandt and my Grandfather Johan Frederick Holtmann's citizenship papers.

 

 

Tan Yard Park

The name "Tan Yard Park" is very fitting because of its historical background.

 

 

Letters: Thanks to all

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of the runners, helpers and volunteers that helped to make this year's Columbus Leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run possible.

 

 

Letters: A bridge story

I am writing this letter to let you know of another bridge success story.

 

 

Letters: A well-deserved rose

Sunday’s Commercial Dispatch very appropriately awarded a rose to Annunciation Catholic School for its lead in teaching “Save Energy.”

 

 

Letters: Important meeting

As early as 2004 the original designs for a proposed sportsplex were presented to our city and county leaders. After a long six years, the proposal has been refined and is now openly embraced by our current leaders.

 

 

Letters: Lost and found

Quick action and cool heads found two lost 20-year-olds that started at the Lake Lowndes nature trail and ended up in Alabama Thursday evening.

 

 

The Packet: Local minister explains his arrest (link)

 

 

Appreciates Baptist care

I have a tale to tell you about a person who was afraid to go into the hospital. She had heard all sorts of stories of how the hospital did not care for the people who were ill. She had even had several incidents herself. When her doctor said he would do the surgery and replace her knee, not only was the doctor worried about infection, but she was afraid of things also.

 

 

Appreciates coverage

Two thumbs-up for the outstanding work by the WCBI-TV staff all day Saturday during the bad-weather that came through our area.

 

 

Heartened by show of generosity

The people of Columbus are generous. This is what I learned last Tuesday, April 13 while spending the day with the Lowndes Young Leaders at Wal-Mart. This group of high school students from all over Lowndes County planned and organized three service projects, and I was lucky enough to “help” them collect items for the Columbus Lowndes Humane Society.

 

 

Letters: Rejecting tyranny

The Boston Tea Party was not only a protest against taxation without representation, it was also a rejection of tyranny. Tyranny results from not protecting our freedom.

 

 

Letters: Appreciating our library

This week, schools, campuses and communities across the country celebrate National Library Week, a time to remind the public about the contribution libraries, librarians and library workers make to their communities every day.
