Thanks, Harvey

Once again Harvey Myrick and his crew of hard workers have given Columbus another “star.” The event was well planned, certainly well attended, and enjoyed by all ages!

 

 

A cautionary tale

 

 

The passing

On March 20th, Mel Brown passed away in Kitchener, Ontario. He had lived in Canada for several years and was considered the "BB King" of Canada.

 

 

Sweet weekend, good barbecue

On behalf of the “Grilling on the River ‘09” committee, staff and volunteers, many heartfelt thanks to all of Columbus, Lowndes County, and the Golden Triangle.

 

 

Disappointment

Our District One Congressman is still waiting for my call to thank him for voting “yes” on President Obama’s pay back spending spree. Well, it ain’t never gonna happen and I bet everyone who can “add to and take away” feels the same way. Cause after comparing the Obama stimulus to the Bush stimulus, this is what you get: Under Bush we poor folk received 1,200 big ones, which is the same as the filthy rich received. Under Obama the filthy rich received millions and billions; we have received nothing. Should we be calling to say thanks? No way. I just can’t wait for the big fat tax increase so they can start sending more money abroad, how about you?

 

 

The “new” Dispatch

The new, narrower Dispatch should indeed be easier for some to handle. I am essentially one-armed since my left side was severely handicapped by a stroke five years ago. The daily TV listings should not be too much of a problem, as long as you list the NEXT day’s programs. Some people don’t get a paper until late in the afternoon.

Questions for Congressman Childers

I was never so glad to see a political campaign season end as the one that supposedly finished in Nov. ‘08, and I bet everybody in the whole country would say the same. I was very pleased to see an end to all the SPAM flooding my mail every day, weren’t you? Well , it’s starting up again already! We have been receiving all these flyers from Congressman Childers where he is boasting about saving the lives of 11 million children with his “affordable” health care. He says it’s OK to go ahead and get sick now, and 22 million parents won’t have to lose sleep worrying about their children not having “affordable” health care anymore. In addition to the mail delivered to our home, there are ads on TV saying the same thing and asking the 33 million people to call Congressman Childers for the purpose of giving thanks. Is anybody else getting tired of this? Do you wonder too who is paying the bill for this? What I’d really like to hear from Mr. Childers are the answers to several questions I have asked him through e-mail and through his office in Columbus. I’ve asked him why he didn’t speak at the March for Life in D.C. on the 22nd of Jan and why he wasn’t even there. I asked him why he hasn’t co-sponsored HR25, the Fair Tax Bill, which will deliver us from the federal income tax burdens and abolish the IRS. I asked him why he hasn’t fought for our 45 bypass around Columbus to be included in the 9,000 earmarks in our government’s latest spending spree. I asked him why our state is supposed to receive only $250 million for education when there are $80 billion in the pot for that purpose. Lastly, I asked why he voted for the incredible bill at warp speed before knowing what was actually in it. Now I’m sure everyone would like to know his answers to these questions but I probably won’t be getting them any time soon. What do you think? Raymond Gross, Columbus

 

 

Disagree with editorial

I read with concern and confusion a recent Commercial Dispatch editorial dealing with the proposed new soccer/sportsplex (Building a sportsplex: What are we waiting for? Feb. 18). While I certainly agree with the sentiments that the time has come for Columbus to build the facility, the editorial missed the mark when it dismissed two potential locations.

 

 

‘Fringe science’ has no business in the classroom

I appreciate Mr. Abraham Smith’s letter (Evolutionists’ erroneous assertions, Feb. 17) responding to my commentary on science education in the USA. His letter was polite and to the point. However, his definition of “fairness” in teaching science is problematic for the following reasons.

 

 

Lost hope

Even though I did not support Barack Obama in his run for the Presidency I had high hopes for him and great expectations from him.
