I still say (editorial cartoonist) Mike Luckovich encourages racism and discrimination. We need to move on beyond those two narrow-minded problems.
Several days ago, after leaving the dialysis unit, my husband began to bleed from the access in his arm and was losing blood at a very fast rate. Fortunately for him and for us, and his family, two quick-thinking and competent women saw what was happening to him.
It is very appropriate that the State of Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol has a great push on during the Aug. 15 to Sept. 15 period to help stop drinking and driving.
I woke up this wonderful Sunday morning with rain lurking in the air to find that some one had taken a large rock to our fairly new mailbox.
We keep hearing, “Stop Sunday alcohol sales in Columbus.” The fact is there are already Sunday alcohol sales in Columbus. Beer and light wine (wine coolers, etc..) have been sold on Sundays in Columbus for years in stores and restaurants.
Eleven years ago I was a senior at Columbus High School. I hadn’t the slightest idea what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. My guidance counselor shot down my dreams of attending Morehouse College in Atlanta.
To the Columbus Lowndes Parks and Recreation Board who voted unanimously for Burns Bottom as the site for the soccer complex, thank you. And to the ad-hoc committee who also supported the site – thank you as well.
Forty seven million without health care. Millions more, to make a claim, don’t dare. Their high-paid insurance they might lose If they missed the small print of the Don’ts and Do’s.
Recently, I had the privilege of exhibiting my art work at the Rosenzweig Arts Center. What an impressive facility! And delightful staff.
The debate about the complex issue of healthcare reform is not helped by several bogus arguments which mislead rather than clarify. I would like to list several of them.
Re: Sportsplex land. I don't see a rich verses poor plot, however, I think the Country Club is looking for a “bail out.” If golf was booming, there is no way they would offer that property for sale.
If you have paid attention to the healthcare townhall meetings held across the nation this month, you know there is lots of fear surrounding the Obama administration's proposal to reform the way we receive health care in this nation. Those fears may or may not be justified.
The health care package is Obama’s newest trick, sometimes I think it’s only a big diversion play in an effort to cover up the first six months of boo boos.
Dear Editor, I am a primary care physician and have been practicing since 1989. I am very active in healthcare reform and I have a Web site (www.OurHealthReform.com) devoted to that reform. This is my second mass mailing to US newspapers in an effort to give a perspective that is not often offered: one from the mid-point of the reform spectrum.
Other industrialized nations provide universal health care, from Australia to Canada and Finland to Israel. Our Medicare and the Veterans Health Administration have demonstrated what can be done, even with a shortage of funding and focus.
Re: A New Possibility for Soccer Complex: Columbus Country Club Golf Course (Our Opinion, Aug. 13) The article was well written and thought provoking.
You know you hear a lot of bad publicity about our police department (Columbus) but Starkville Police Dept. takes the cake.
Having read the story about the Columbus Country Club offering the nine holes on Military Road for the soccer complex, I have these thoughts. I applaud their offer and I hope the finances can be worked out because this is the best location for all and like the others, is much more desirable than Burns Bottom. I have reviewed the park Internet sites for both Tupelo and Starkville and Tupelo has 15 fields and Starkville has seven fields.
I'd like to suggest you have John Coffey give us his estimation of why Mississippi is the 50th ranked state in many crucial measurements.
In the debate of the sale of alcohol, ensuring public safety should be a point which must not be taken lightly. In reviewing the data available as well as reviewing historical evidence and perspectives from neighboring communities, it is clear that relaxing the restrictions on alcohol sales does not pose an increased threat to the public and there is evidence that less stringent regulation may reduce risk.
