Roy Grubb: Police interview

You could tell by the candidate from Washington and the one from Chicago was not going anywhere. Washington candidate talked all about himself and the candidate from Chicago could not hear or understand the questions asked.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Take a bite out of crime: Legalize marijuana

I'm a conservative first with libertarian leanings and a little bit of liberal in me. Robert Koehler's column "Public Enemy No. 1" (in Tuesday's Dispatch) was very interesting. I grew up being taught the evils of marijuana and other "recreational" drugs. I still wish people wouldn't destroy their and others' lives with drugs, especially addictive ones. It is a dead-end road.

 

 

Scott Colom: Omnova sale bad sign for unions

Posted 12/21/2011 in Dispatch Editorials

Trying to find a union in Mississippi is a lot like trying to find an animal on the endangered species list; the more time passes the harder they are to locate. And, with the recent news that Omnova Solutions Inc. sold its manufacturing operations and plans to cease manufacturing at its Columbus plant, unions may have inadvertently made it more difficult to remove themselves from the endangered list.

Birney Imes: Cars and cell phones

Posted 12/17/2011 in Local Columns

While it may be a little early to be thinking about resolutions for 2012, it's past time we consider the relationship between cell phones and driving.

Shannon Bardwell: A wishbone Christmas

Posted 12/14/2011 in Local Columns

This will be a different Christmas. For one, the traditional 20-foot tree will become a ghost of Christmas past. Each year we have trekked over hill and dell, through the mud and briars, to find the perfect tree. The tree was hoisted over barbed-wire fences, through a ditch or two and tugged onto the brush trailer.

Charlie Mitchell: Feds have kept Mississippi afloat

Posted 12/9/2011 in Local Columns
