Religious differences

Bert Montgomery wrote ("Singing ‘Father Abraham’", Sept. 14, 2009) of a gathering he attended on Sept. 10 at Mississippi State’s campus, where Christians, Muslims, and Jews met to discuss their respective faiths. He wrote that he was thankful that the night was peaceful and the participants were respectful of one another.

 

 

Thanks

A big ‘thank you’ to the Cadence Bank employees, led by Tom Green, who painted the exterior of Greater Columbus Learning Center, in the rain, last Thursday, Sept. 10.

 

 

Flooding in Burns Bottom not the big problem it once was

I have been reading for a long time about the Burns Bottom issue for soccer fields. Some believe that since it is located in a flood zone it is in an inappropriate location. As a person with a background in emergency planning with mitigation knowledge, it is suggested to develop such areas for communities for recreational use and buffer flood zones. The county and the city could look into the land fund mitigation for flood zones there is moneys for development.

 

 

Enthusiastic about charrette presentation

I encourage everyone who has not yet seen the presentation from the recent charrette to view it on-line. It is a fantastic plan for what can be done in Columbus and it is based on what has already been done in so many cities around the country that we often admire and enjoy in our travels.

 

 

Fragile egos

The best thing voters in the Columbus/Lowndes County area can do is get rid of the racist big dogs with fragile egos just begging to be bruised so a tantrum can be thrown. Columbus and Lowndes County will continue to suffer as long as these spoiled children are in office.

 

 

Disputes Sanders’ claim

According to the Thursday's edition of The Dispatch, Harry Sanders stated in the Charrette meeting at the Link there has been a loss of automobile sales in Columbus to dealerships in Noxubee, Lamar, and Pickens counties.

 

 

Luckovich viewpoint

Like most big-time newspaper employees, owners, editors, op-ed writers, etc., Mike Luckovich is an unashamed liberal.

 

 

Stop the self-destruction

As I perused the sullen hallways of the county judiciary recently, it was impossible to be impervious to the warehoused bodies of young men and women, black and white, and Hispanics alike.

 

 

Doesn’t like Mike

I still say (editorial cartoonist) Mike Luckovich encourages racism and discrimination. We need to move on beyond those two narrow-minded problems.

 

 

Two caring women and E-911

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.

 

 

Against Sunday alcohol sales

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.

 

 

Unfriendly city

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.

 

 

Alcohol already available on Sunday

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.

 

 

Supports MUW name change

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.

 

 

In praise of Burns Bottom

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.

 

 

Scaring Ourselves Silly: a poem about health care

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.

 

 

Support the RAC

Recently, I had the privilege of exhibiting my art work at the Rosenzweig Arts Center. What an impressive facility! And delightful staff.

 

 

Bogus arguments

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.

 

 

Sportsplex

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.

 

 

Concerned about healthcare plan funding abortions

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.
