For years now I have been urging locals down here to get informed about candidates, local to national, in my column in the Macon Beacon, but I don't know how much good it's done.
I just returned this afternoon from basically two months out of the country and read your editorial in today's paper with shock.
Dear Birney, The summer of 1968 my Dad was transferred back to Louisiana and that is where I finished high school, went to college, and raised my family. Every now and then I make contact with someone from Columbus and we even pass through the town on occasion.
I was a little surprised The Dispatch would publish such an obvious false political statement about Congressman Ryan's proposal to save our Medicare. I'm referring to the Mike Luckovich cartoon, (Thursday, May 26, "Hangover II,") that appeared on the opinion page.
It seems that rules and by-laws are changed often here in Columbus when it is going to work to a favored person's advantage. If I am correct, then why does this happen?
I just wanted to thank all of the people who made the Newcomers' Orientation such a success.
I saw the article in the paper about the bankruptcy of the Country Club. I had some ideas to cook up some revenue for the club. Right now you are offering $35 for golfing fees.
A row of cages along a wall; Above ground coffins for them all.
In recent weeks, I have been the focus of criticism from the public and by the media regarding certain actions taken by the full membership of the Starkville School District Board of Trustees regarding leadership changes for our school system.
I had the opportunity and pleasure to attend the presentation of Dr. Martha Liddell mentioned in your article today.
In the pre-dawn hours of Wednesday May 10th, stealthily taking place at 317 Seventh Street N. was destruction and demolition of a National Register Victorian gem, Friendship House.
I hope you write a story about my great grandfather who built Friendship House. He died in the house. My grandfather, Thomas J. Locke Jr., was born in this house.
The prospect of Hope Community Church having a presence in downtown Columbus is indeed an exciting one.
Hooray for Cpl. Donnie Elkin and whatever he makes working for the City of Columbus. He earns every dime he makes, whether it is on straight time or overtime.
Today I saw on TV a story about two sisters, 8 and 7, who wanted to help the victims of the recent tornadoes that hit the Golden Triangle area.
The recent decision of the Starkville School District Board of Trustees to direct Superintendent Judy Couey to take administrative leave and her subsequent resignation due to health reasons has created quite the debate about the board's release of information following an executive session about her departure.
I am writing to express my appreciation to The Commercial Dispatch and Frank Phillips YMCA for sponsoring the Possum Town Mile-A-Day Marathon that started on May 1st.
Just wanted to drop a note and let everyone know about a semi trailer set up in front of Southern Family Market in east Columbus taking donations for the tornado victims.
