Letters: Thanks to all

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of the runners, helpers and volunteers that helped to make this year's Columbus Leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run possible.

 

 

Letters: A bridge story

I am writing this letter to let you know of another bridge success story.

 

 

Letters: A well-deserved rose

Sunday’s Commercial Dispatch very appropriately awarded a rose to Annunciation Catholic School for its lead in teaching “Save Energy.”

 

 

Letters: Important meeting

As early as 2004 the original designs for a proposed sportsplex were presented to our city and county leaders. After a long six years, the proposal has been refined and is now openly embraced by our current leaders.

 

 

Letters: Lost and found

Quick action and cool heads found two lost 20-year-olds that started at the Lake Lowndes nature trail and ended up in Alabama Thursday evening.

 

 

The Packet: Local minister explains his arrest (link)

 

 

Appreciates Baptist care

I have a tale to tell you about a person who was afraid to go into the hospital. She had heard all sorts of stories of how the hospital did not care for the people who were ill. She had even had several incidents herself. When her doctor said he would do the surgery and replace her knee, not only was the doctor worried about infection, but she was afraid of things also.

 

 

Appreciates coverage

Two thumbs-up for the outstanding work by the WCBI-TV staff all day Saturday during the bad-weather that came through our area.

 

 

Heartened by show of generosity

The people of Columbus are generous. This is what I learned last Tuesday, April 13 while spending the day with the Lowndes Young Leaders at Wal-Mart. This group of high school students from all over Lowndes County planned and organized three service projects, and I was lucky enough to “help” them collect items for the Columbus Lowndes Humane Society.

 

 

Letters: Rejecting tyranny

The Boston Tea Party was not only a protest against taxation without representation, it was also a rejection of tyranny. Tyranny results from not protecting our freedom.

 

 

Letters: Appreciating our library

This week, schools, campuses and communities across the country celebrate National Library Week, a time to remind the public about the contribution libraries, librarians and library workers make to their communities every day.

 

 

Letters: Cemetery thieves

 

 

Letters: Millions, not thousands

It was encouraging to learn that the Tupelo Middle School has an active science club (April 12) and that they had a good field trip to a fossil bed.

 

 

Letters: Priorities

I applaud Charlie Box for taking a stand against borrowing extra money to pay for the community centers.

 

 

Apologizing isn’t enough

Thank you, Charlie Box, for making the motion before the City Council to reprimand Mayor Smith and Councilman Karriem for their embarrassing behavior last week. It is a small step toward reversing the bad publicity our city has received.

 

 

Airing ‘dirty laundry’

Re: Steve Mullen’s column, “Pardon our progress …” As a lifelong resident of Columbus, I took offense to your article where you clearly pointed out some of the biggest flaws of Columbus.

 

 

Childhood diet and breast cancer

I was saddened to hear that tennis star Martina Navratilova was diagnosed with breast cancer, but I’m so glad she has an excellent prognosis.

 

 

Belk Spring Charity Sale

Belk’s Charity Sale on May 1 from 6-10 a.m. will once again benefit local charities, schools and nonprofit organizations throughout the company’s 16-state market area, including Mississippi.

 

 

The Pope’s apology

Re: Sinead O’Connor’s April 2, 2010, column “The Pope's Apology” (p. 5A). “During a frustrating argument with a Roman Catholic Cardinal, Napoleon Bonaparte supposedly burst out ‘Your Eminence are you not aware that I have the power to destroy the Catholic Church?’”

 

 

Bad news travels fast

On Saturday, my husband was sitting at a local tire store in Tennessee. While waiting a man and his wife came in off the interstate with tire problems. The man started a conversation about their trip to Columbus. My husband and I are both from Columbus so what were the odds?
