Ask Rufus: The First Thanksgiving?

Posted 11/22/2020 in Local Columns

Thanksgiving is a holiday filled with history, tradition and food.

Partial to Home: Winter light

Posted 11/21/2020 in Local Columns

It seemed strangely incongruous to sit in the predawn light at my laptop in PJs and Paul Thorn autographed baseball cap singing hosannas to Mother Nature.

Posted 11/20/2020 in Local Columns

You probably did not notice the quiet closing of the epic pandemic Census on October 15. Yep, we're done counting! Ten weeks in the field gave rise to interesting interactions with people and places. I signed up for a temporary learning experience; I was not disappointed!

Dr. Jeremy Blanchard: Returning to Sweet Home Mississippi

Posted 11/17/2020 in Local Columns

Posted 11/17/2020 in Local Columns

This election is historic in many ways. More than 150 million people voted, and there is only about a 5 million difference in votes between the winner and the loser. In addition, the difference in votes across multiple states continues to be "too close to call."
