Local Voices: The Columbus School Board responds to editorial

This is in response to your editorial dated August 10, 2011: The Board of Trustees of the Columbus Municipal School District is accountable to many different constituencies: the district's boys and girls, employees, taxpayers and citizens. We have a responsibility to the boys and girls of the district to provide them with a high quality education.

 

 

Rick McGill: Negative campaigning

I received a copy of a widespread e-mail that was sent out Thursday, Aug. 4th. The sender was a Lynn Wright supporter. In the text of the e-mail, there some crass remarks made towards my wife's campaign but nothing that I couldn't normally shake off.

 

 

Tyler Edmonds responds to Forrest Allgood comments

After reading the recent comments in The Commercial Dispatch regarding District Attorney Forrest Allgood (Forrest Allgood responds, July 26, 2011, Voice of the people), I couldn't refrain from weighing in with my experiences.

 

 

Allen Greenhaw: Questions candidate's calls

Is it ethical for a Lowndes County Schools employee who happens to be a candidate for superintendent to use the school districts database for political purposes?

 

 

Janice Gilliam: Supports Jeff Smith

 

 

Mark Smith: Supports Dennis

I am working with and supporting a fellow business owner, and a person who is virtually unmatched as a civic leader, for governor of Mississippi.

 

 

Oran Hill: Troubled by candidate's lawsuit

I noticed that Mr. Lynn Wright tried to vindicate himself in a letter to The Dispatch in May where he was "explaining" his reasons for his dismissal as principal of New Hope High last year.

 

 

Bobby Harper: Phil Bryant means experienced leadership

I'm working for the Phil Bryant for Governor campaign because Mississippi needs the right experience and proven leadership in our next Governor. We don't have to guess what kind of Governor Phil Bryant will be. We know what he has done in the past, and we know what he is capable of doing to move Mississippi forward.

 

 

Forrest Allgood: Forrest Allgood responds

 

 

Faye Henley: Identity of good Samaritan

I would like to reply to the Voice of the People ("Under-appreciated good Samaritan") in the Sun. July 10th paper. The under-appreciated good Samaritan's name is Paul Denney from Jackson. He was here visiting family.

 

 

Fred Bell: Election time

There has been much in the news about the importance of Aug. 2 on the national level whether or not to raise the debt limit. While we are all interested in what's going on in Washington, remember that Aug. 2 is very important date here in Mississippi as well.

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Alcohol habit

This is a direct result of another "zero tolerance policy." The use (abuse?) of alcohol and/or other drugs while "on the clock," whether in public or private employ, should not be acceptable. What's good for the goose is also good for the gander.

 

 

J.M. Gilliam: Silly

How silly of Nan Lott to question our Rep. Jeff Smith about changing over to the Republican party.

 

 

Bill Kane: New Zealanders concerned about fate of St. John

I note with some concern your article regarding the suspension of Chief Joseph St. John. I would like to make the point that he has no idea that I am writing this letter of support.

 

 

Elliott and Hannon: Support St. John

We are writing to voice our unconditional support for Joseph St. John, Police Chief of the City of Columbus!

 

 

Cameron Triplett: Revised position

In past letters I have expressed my opinion about the Omnova strike and the results it brought about. Today, Sunday, July 10, I had a nice visit and chat with one of the strikers. He gave me some more information I didn't have. I knew that I didn't have the whole story. Most strikes are about money and benefits, as in more. According to my visitor, a distant relative by the way, this was about that, but with a twist. I consider myself to be a pretty good judge of character, and I believe everything my visitor said.

 

 

Randy Finch: Supports Larmour

A tiger can't change his stripes. Jeff Smith is still employing Democrat vs. Republican strategies. The NRA gave Jack Larmour an A rating. Anyone who knows Jack Larmour knows all his actions are above board. Someone needs to remind Jeff Smith that he is a Republican.

 

 

Sarah Tatum: An under-appreciated good Samaritan

Somewhere in the Golden Triangle area is a very lucky family that would be planning a funeral today if it had not been for a very fast on his feet "good Samaritan."

 

 

Marleen Hansen: The Saturday Dispatch

Like it! And since it is "conjured up in Columbus" why not have it at the Farmers Markets in Columbus and Starkville?

 

 

Tyler McShan: Saturday edition

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.
