Ironically, it was the lack of a Saturday edition that caused our change from The Commercial Dispatch to the Tuscaloosa News about 1972. My family always had a strong tie to Columbus probably since the town was founded when the rail -road came through.

Your "A troubling campaign" opinion in the Tuesday paper was interesting but incomplete.
In Friday's paper, the column by Susan Estrich showed her bias. OK, it's an op-ed, but not even opinion writers are allowed to make up their own "facts." She does an admirable job toting Mr. Obama's water for the Democrat Party, but I take slight exception with some of her opinions.

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.
