Claude Simpson: Moonshine, a business opportunity

The article and column in Sunday's paper about the fellows who got caught making moonshine was very interesting and further shows how economic development is stifled in our state.

 

 

Letter to the Editor: Supports Romney

It is very exciting that the presidential primary in Mississippi is important this year. Because the nomination has yet to be decided, we have an opportunity to help elect the next Republican nominee. Mississippi citizens should take this very seriously.

 

 

Martin M. Pomphrey Jr. M.D.: Concerned season ticket holder

This baseball season at MSU brings a new student entity to campus, The Dudes.

 

 

Heath Fisackerly : An open letter to the superintendent

My name is Heath Fisackerly and I am a sophomore at Columbus High School. I am extremely disappointed in the board's decision to terminate the contracts of teachers throughout the district. I was at the board meeting Monday the 12th of February and I couldn't understand a word being said.

 

 

Kayla Tew: The people have spoken on personhood

To the members of the Mississippi House Constitution Committee: On Nov. 8, 2011, Mississippi spoke on the issue of personhood. Fifty-eight percent of our great state voted down Initiative 26. Our citizens were well-informed when they voted. We were not mislead or influenced by scare tactics. We knew that personhood is not right for our state, nor is it right for any state.

 

 

Woodrow "Woodie" Howell : School funding

What happened to all the tax money from the casinos that was supposed to go to the school system?

 

 

Patti Drapala: Excited about the caucuses

I routinely sleep late on weekends, but I won't on Feb. 18, which is this Saturday. Mississippi Democrats are holding their statewide precinct caucuses that day, and for the first time, I plan to participate at the basic level of the selection process for president of the United States.

 

 

Raymond Gross: Supports Newt

Let me tell you about the man I endorse for president.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Teachers and the health of towns

It is a sad situation when anyone must be terminated due to lack of funds, especially those who's job is educating our youth. Education is key not only to their future, but that of our nation as well.

 

 

Toni Caldwell: Disgraceful behavior

The way that some board members of the CVB, employees and elected officials attending the meetings conduct themselves is a disgrace to Columbus and deserving of chastisement from citizens.

 

 

Jack White: A letter to city judges

Dear Judge Marc Amos and Judge Nicole Clinkscales: More than 60 households in The Northside Neighborhood Watch have realized that citizens must accept responsibility for the quality of life in Columbus.

 

 

Robert A. White: War on drugs a failure

The city is experiencing a increase in crime, and burglary is just one aspect. I attended the Jan. 17 city council meeting. Police Chief McQueen is concerned about the level to which crime in the city has risen.

 

 

Selby Parker: Response to column

"Absent fathers: King's Dream?" by Scott Colom was featured in the Clarion-Ledger on Sunday, Jan. 29 and twice referenced Mississippi in regards to absentee fathers.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: One root cause of crime

Just as there is no one cause for the crime in Columbus, or anywhere else, there is no one solution, either. The economy is surely one, but it is not beyond the control of "the man on the street."

 

 

Jack H. White: Appreciates response of public officials

The Northside Neighborhood Watch has been successful in securing positive and productive resolutions of problems and concerns through Councilman Kabir Karriem, the City Council, Mayor Smith, and numerous officials and department heads.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Guns and accidents

 

 

John Imes: A symbol of new hope

 

 

Paul Mims: Concurs with column

Leonard Pitts, I read with interest your column "The Hidden Cost of War" in the Thursday Jan. 19 Commercial Dispatch. As usual, you presented a thoughtful, thought-provoking view of a controversial subject.

 

 

Mayor Robert E. Smith Sr.: City is taking steps to combat crime

I, as Mayor, and the City Council are very concerned about the burglaries, home invasions, larceny, theft, illegal use of drugs and homicides that have occurred in the past four to five months.

 

 

Chris Howard: Takes exception to column

I grew frustrated reading Birney Imes' Saturday rant about the Iraq war. My frustration resulted from Mr. Imes' repetition of the empty assertion that the Iraq war was a pointless endeavor. It seems obvious to me that a cursory examination of the state of the world 10 years ago and a comparison to today would lead anyone to at least acknowledge that some positive changes in the world have resulted from our Iraq efforts.
