My brother did no such thing!!!
The Parents for Public Schools Starkville have a wonderfully informative internet publication that explains how the $13200000 bond will lower county taxes. Now we know
This is great news for job creation in Mississippi and for the U.S. economy.
Changes in the global manufacturing market, technology and the benefits of locating manufacturing closer to customers are giving companies more options to manufacture competitively in the U.S.
Current research shows many companies can reshore about 25% of what they have offshored and improve their profitability simply by using TCO (total cost) instead of price to make their decision.
25% is equal to 1 million manufacturing jobs!
Companies are reshoring because they are finding that selecting locations near customers gives them better flexibility to respond to customers, eliminates higher shipping expenses, minimizes supply chain disruptions and eliminates the larger production runs and inventories associated with long distance offshoring.
Companies are investing and reshoring because it makes good economic sense to do so.
The not-for-profit Reshoring Initiative can help.
The not-for-profit Reshoring Initiative’s free Total Cost of Ownership software helps corporations calculate the real P&L impact of reshoring or offshoring. In many cases, companies find that, although the production cost is lower offshore, the total cost is higher, making it a good economic decision to reshore manufacturing back to the U.S.
It’s always two sides. May God Bless!

Sounds like to me that the DHS in itawamba county is *CORRUPT*, they take peoples kids away for the same stuff she let her kids do!! FIX IT MISSISSIPPI!!
The people speak up with a petition and now some want to silence the masses. Why can’t we just vote?
Upsets non-elected Dictators, that’s why.
The Tenn Tom Transportation Museum will be an educational tool for the old and young promoting the Tenn Tom Waterway in the use of inter-modal transportation and tourism.
My God, the CEO of the GSDP
can now levy taxes on the
county. What awesome power.
Why be a king when you could……
Couldn’t happen to a better family. Good luck, guys. Wish I could have been there.
Now the city of Starkville can tell the county
they get no vote?
Petition, counter petition? How about a
counter counter petition to counter the
counter petition …etc..
There is this really cool thing I heard of
once, it”s called a vote.
Oh, I see, it’s not over till you say it’over.
Didn’t need a vote to start with so We, yes I helped,
went out and explained the situation,
got signatures ,and now the issue should
come to a vote.
Now the GSDP will come to the rescue saving
us all from democracy. Incredible Gregory
The people have spoken.
Now we will get them all to unspeak.
If Education wasn’t “free”, parents
might be a little more involved.
I live beside this store. We are friendswith this clerk
All I have to offer is prayers that this twisted person is found and a HUGE thank you for standing up and supporting the law. Maybe many don’t know, it is a FELONY to injure or kill domestic animals in ALL 50 states. I pray this person is found…SOON.
Ms April is a GOD gift to every child who comes in contact with from schools , churches , community and I just want to say Thank You Thank you and love your Spirit & heart. ..
Just because the child’s father was a paraplegic did not stop the father from making sure the child was cared for, well fed and clothed as well as clean and had plenty of people to love and ensure his safety. The court took custody from his father who had provided a home for him from the time his mother dropped him off the then small baby with him. True the father’s legs may not have worked properly but that did not stop him from feeding, changing diapers and loving this child. Just curious if all paraplegics loose custody of their children if the natural mother decides to come back in the child’s life at the point and time they are ready are awarded their children back?
Drag him down the streets of Hell!!! Behind a vehicle would do for people to throw stones, bricks!!!
Its to hard for a child to cock, especially that long! I’ve dropped one and it didn’t fire! Pray for my family members!
Maben fire department was assisted by Mathiston firefighters today. The blaze was initially attacked and knocked down by Maben firefighters. You need to get your facts straight!
Never has crossed my mine that his arms would be that long to do this crime. My understanding that there was no family members were present. (Friend in my book are not family) My prayers goes out to the family. Hope and speaking for this four year old that no stone goes on unturned in this investigation.
It boils down to who do you protect? The freedoms of a few vs the freedoms of society in general. I would like to believe that common ground would be to take the hoodie part off the head when entering the building. I believe this is what we were taught in my time.
Is the school protecting the rights of the student or the interests of the school? I would recommend printing the t shirt and having the proceeds go to a good cause.
Will Kays Kreation be at the Show?
The people in Oktibbeha haveno voice intis matter. Therefore agroup took it upn themelves to collect signtures that would psh the issue to a vote. Without the petitons thiswould be nothing short of taxiation without representation.
Definately have noticed a change. The vegetables are great now. Would like to see new meats offered.
This is GREAT for the city of Columbus, Mississippi, which is my home town! I love Cracker Barrel and eat there where I live now in Madison, Alabama, at least twice a week. For breakfast, the pancakes, french toast, and all of their breakfast items are delicious. For supper, I love their chicken and dumplings, turnip greens, fried okra, macaroni & cheese that is to die for, pinto beans, baked apples, and blackberry cobbler and ice cream. For Sunday dinner, their two fried chicken breasts are delicious! All of the vegetables are great and the cornbread is very good. I’ve never had anything that doesn’t taste wonderful at my Cracker Barrel.
Also, I love shopping in the store! They have great sales on clothes there and jewelry. They have darling baby clothes. They also have a great selection in the Fall of ALABAMA sweatshirts and t-shirts. They have lots of decorative things you can buy for your home. It’s a great place to find a gift for someone. They have neat cards, games, and things for children.
Eupora sits on a line running through the central part of the state. Still, reliable internet access over fiber was one of the main selling points that the Megapop project board used to sell the ARC and Miss. cities on a scheme to rope in $30 million in tax money.
When the ARC ponied up the money and governor Haley Barbour posed for a flood of photo ops with city and county officials, announcing municipal hookups to the Memphis to coast fiber loop, newspapers in the state ran stories about how AT&T was livid the state was competing with the company in the internet business. Tupelo, Starkville, Columbus all passed local ordinances granting ROW for laying parts of the loop through their cities.
Now, year later, where is the access? Where is the $30 million fiber network that was the Megapop project? Google it.
in response to maben resident.. that may be the case but about 4 years ago the city leaders threw a fit because the fire dept was assisting another dept on a fire when a house burned up in maben and mathiston was first on scene which ultimately led to the resignation of the chief at the time because of the negative things that were being said from the mayor and members of our community . it was majorly frowned upon by the administration thats in place now. the remarks made that day were why is another department beating our own to a call and our department was the reason the house burned to the ground. so to your arguement yes they are staffed by volunteers and yes that is very important. but that didnt make any difference 4 years ago to the leaders in power. and the community only sees what they want them to see and hear. not the truth about how the town is ran or the negitive comments made by the administration. check your facts before commenting on something and make sure you can support your argument before hand because i can assure you that you cant. ive lived in maben my whole life and i know what goes on behind closed doors on 2nd ave.
These fire departments are staffed solely by volunteers, regardless of who got there first they are an important part of our two communities.
One the most influential men in my formative years. A great coach and a great role model. Always there for his players regardless the situation. Those that dont like him dont know him.
I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I was blessed to have met Mrs. Rice and her son Jerry several years back while she was a patient at the hospital. She was such a sweet lady. This will be a loss to the community. Mr. Rice, peace be with you and your family during this passing of a beautiful lady.
Shut it down ,it’s to much going on this one place.
He don’t need to coach at all need to retire
Winston Academy is getting a great coach and a better man. Best of Luck, Junior!
After no response from several pages to maben f.d., mathiston f.d. was paged and responded and was first on scene and faught the fire. The home was located in the city limits of maben.
Oktibbeha county residences have been thrown under the bus with the consolidation process. First only one school board member will be elected from the County while Starkville City Alderman will appoint the rest.
Residences in Oktibbeha County are being asked to shoulder the responsibility of a $13,200,000 bond referendum for a period of twenty years. One mil of taxes in Oktibbeha County only generates $65,000. It would take 22 mils in taxes to retire the ond in twenty years. That would cost a home owner whose home is accessed at $100,000 an additional $250 annually.
Further more how many other school bond referendums will home owners be asked to pay before the end of twenty years.
This is not a level playing field.
An unselfish act by a caring nurse. Good for you, Lindsey!
Sorry hear the lost of his mother,I met Jerry when my son played with the 49ers,Bryant Young…
$400.00 just isn’t worth it. smh
This vote was for liquor only. Beer was not included as Pittsboro has a population too small to have a beer referendum. There would have been 2 issues to vote on even if beer were to be voted on similar to the vote in the City of Pontotoc earlier this year.
Mississippi Malt Beverage Association
It’s sad.most of my family has done business with this funeral home.this is going to effect a lot of people,but I guess to most it’s not important.what’s the world coming to.no one trusts in God anymore.people just don’t care about anyone but themselves.may God bless them.
Such things as THIS is what is wrong with the children of today!!! EGO = Editing God out…. The moral decline is terrible BECAUSE of too many in positions of (POWER) trying to be MODERN!!!
I agree with you Firre13, with a voter approved amendment it should be enough, but these judges want to take it upon themselves to overturn the ban……get rid of the judge, if the people said marraige is between a man and a woman in Mississippi, enough said.
Simple, if you don’t like it and you are queer, move to California…..they will welcome you but don’t let the screen door hit you in the butt here.
A breaking and entering at my property in Amory was written off a couple of years ago. The culprit made off with an estate worth about $160 to $200k, Amory Police did nothing but aide and abet the criminal/criminals. It is still an issue, they converted his assets to their own personal use. The taxman will eventually catch up with them.
With all the recent holdups in Amory, time to investigate whether the police chief should resign. For such a small town, it shouldn’t be a problem finding a new one.
Wait a minute…”Several retailers, including J.C. Penny’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Best Buy, opened at 5 p.m.”. Columbus doesn’t have a Best Buy! But it would be absolutely convenient if the city did have Best Buy and Target.
Ole Miss…..they do this every few years or so but never get anywhere…hehehehehe, hahahahaha
Great job! Glad to see justice being served!
It is rare for emergency responders to witness the outcome of on scene efforts.
This group of professionals are privileged to be able to meet the fire victims,
and see for them doing well two months later.
Great article and news story!!!
Not enough research? Clearly they don’t like reading! There has been lots of research just not read
I remember her well. That wonderful smile means so much to people who are afraid, and not feeling well.Hope you have a most wonderful and blessed retirement. Thank you for your service.
Here’s hoping the extra publicity gets this funded the rest of the way! Just $365 to go, last I checked. Good luck, Armours!
This lady was always * always so kind to me when I was at Baptist! Most times she was the only reason to smile while I was there! Thank you Ms Precious!
The child has been found!!
In one article you say MSU tuition is rising by 5% and then in the next article Mr. Keenum is getting a $25,000 raise.
I am sure this is well deserved as most people would really just scrape by if they only made $429,000 a year to start with. Students are having to take out loans as their parents can’t afford college tuition fees now and this happens? What a sad state of affairs our system has become.
What is wrong with this picture?
Where in Oktoc? Around what road?
So very sad. My prayers for the lady’s family and ALL the search and rescue personnel involved in this effort today. These kinds of accidents take a toll on those folks….Prayers for everyone..
Sounds like Lowndes County IS the list, another great get for the LINK. Teamwork!
I would just like to make a correction in the report. This is not the first time Civic Ballet has participated in the Arts Showcase. This will be the 4th annual Tupelo Arts Showcase and Civic Ballet has hosted this event every year. Thanks for getting the word out though. It will be a wonderful evening for the Arts!
Is this true or a hoax….i have a 3 yr old and dont live far from there
Mr. Davidson I have told you for over a year that KIOR was a thermodynamic fake. Why did you not report this to the folks in your town?
Hello, My Pomeranian was stolen from me last Oct from the TN border of Corinth Ms. She was 10 years old at the time she was stolen! She is Orange Sable with Tan! She would now be 11. She was my therapy fur baby and is very loved and missed! If one of the dogs you rescued from Corinth Ms. fits her description please contact me ASAP! Thank you
Hello, My 10 year old Pomeranian was stolen from me a year ago October. She would now be 11. She is a Orange and Tan Sable coat Pomeranian and was my therapy dog! If you have her, please contact me ASAP. I can provide proof of ownership! I miss my fur baby and need and want her home! Thank you and God Bless
My 10 year old Pomeranian was stolen from me a year ago in October! She is Orange sable with tan! She would now be 11!!! IF by chance she is one of the dogs picked up, please, please contact me ASAP!! She was my therapy dog!!!! Thank you and God Bless
This is what happens when administrators create “criminal protection zones” by denying people their 2nd amendment rights. Criminals don’t obey the rules.
Why have you stopped running this on broadcast cause she hasnt been found. There is no amber alert and I feel like noone is trying to get the word out about her. Shes someone’s daughter best friend sister and we all love and miss her. Please PLEASE keep running this.
What about the gulf coast? Lots of history down here.
Our county law enforcement focuses on one thing it seems to me. I’ve lived my whole life here in lamar county. I’ve been in the thick of it and I promise you all this. Nothing will happen unless the people make it happen. That goes for all of lamar county. One thing and one thing only matters to this sorry excuse of a system we have here. Money, and I know from experience.
Thank you for the coverage.
The search for a missing girl has come to an end.
The Tupelo Police Department says they have found Erykah Williams safe and sound.
She was reported missing after she left Tupelo Middle School Thursday afternoon and did not make it home.
Congratulations Alaska, Oregon, DC and Guam….even Florida got 57% of the vote…..
marijuana will be legal everywhere soon, even the evil freedom denying south
Contract with who?
Why has an Amber Alert not been issued for this CHILD and why are they just now bringing this to attention? I have saw the family and friends on social networks asking for help looking for her but why are officials not doing more? Prayers for her and her family
It must have to do with the Amber Alert Guidelines. If they believe it’s a runaway situation they wont issue an Amber Alert. They will only issue for abductions, whether by stranger or family. I personally think it should be issued no matter what, but they claim the system will not be as effective if they include runaways. I pray she comes home safe. It’s a hard world.
Really enjoyed Ms Hinton as guest speaker. She gave an encouraging speech to the honorees…My son ,Parrish Cratic, was one of the honorees..
While Mr. Bragg was in college I was fortunate to be his friend. He is a man of outstanding character. Joey is a guys guy.
Joey Bragg will bring a young, fresh, new face to the Chamber. We need more young
Talented, educated people to help lead Columbus into the future. He will be a breath
Of fresh air for our city. Good luck Joey on both the new opportunity to serve your community and on the upcoming birth of your first child.
Mississippi State have made so many people throughout the state proud to be a Mississippian. The season is not over there is Bama and that team up north. The defense has to get stronger and the secondary got to cover better. The bend but don’t break will get you beat……..Good luck dogs
If any pics were took at the st. Jude trail ride I would love to see them it was a great ride.6625871465
Privileged to have been part of the event. I am one of the Polynesian dancers and it’s amazing to meet international spouses, learned a bit of their culture and international outfit.
OOHHH….how SUPER WONDERFUL!!!!!!!
I will be there. Mu prayers are with Ryan and his family. May God bless him…
I’m praying for y’all
Sounds good its a start and it needs to be moved into play as the revenue is escaping Pontotoc. Thank the City Council in reaching a decision.
God Bless you guys.
Not to be rude but how does “TUPELO” still receive votes to be a top team? We are talking about a team with 3 consecutive losses!!! Seems like a little bit of bias going on with who gets votes. Two (2) of they losses came against unranked teams and one (1) loss against a ranked team. I pretty much agree with all the other votes but the Tupelo vote is ridiculous. If any other team had done the same as Tupelo you wouldn’t even consider them even in the top 15 let alone the top 10!
I don’t disagree with you one bit, Jeremy. I think some voters need to do a better job at watching high school football around the area because as of now there are many more teams deserving of a Top 10 spot. It very well could have been a mistake though!
I hate to be rude, but how in the world is Picayune ranked ahead of Oxford!? Oxford has one loss, but that opponent was nationally ranked Starkville. Picayune hasn’t been tested at all, this was a team that barely survived George County. Picayune has had four games decided by 10 points or less, all of those opponents are not all that impressive. Oxford however, they hung tough with nationally ranked Starkville, dismantled 7-3 West Point 43-33, dismantled 8-1 New Hope 42-21, and dominated almost everyone else. My personal rankings for the 5A top 5 would be: #1 Oxford, #2 Laurel, #3 Wayne County, #4 Picayune, #5 New Hope. Picayune is talented, don’t get me wrong. Oxford has much more talent though. This is just my opinion though. What is your opinion?
Why wasn’t the witnesses-conspirators arrested/charged with tampering with the evidence when they cleaned up the blood at the crime scene prior to calling the police?
I wonder if he did all of it bc of robbery or another reason.
I wish the article had included the reason he committed the crimes.
boys and girls club u rocking it
First it was the electric department with all the problems and cost went up, now the water department. Look at who’s running the city covernment, that bunch couldn’t run a Ice Cream stand and make a profit. What a shame…..what a JOKE !!!!!!
I would like to know the price of your cracked pecans! How much per pound ? Thank you !
There is definitely alcohol in Amory already.
What I would like to see is a vote on how many citizens of Amory would be willing to spend 100% of their paycheck within the city limits of Amory. Not many!
The vote was for progress of Amory because the town is certainly dying! Everything the citizens need is contained right here in the town, yet they desire to spend their money in Tupelo, Columbus, Memphis, or other WET cities.
The entire point was that since the citizens won’t support the commerce of the town, we must try to draw in business from outside. Just like Tupelo, Columbus, and Memphis.
Now I challenge the good citizens of Amory to do business in your hometown and keep your money right here in your hometown with LOCAL owned businesses.
Well looks like we have a Little Egg Bowl coming up on the 24th y’all!!!! Let’s fill the stands and line the fence and support the teams. Both teams are 8-0 as of today Thursday 10/16/2014.
Ms State # 1 – Ole Miss # 3
Calhoun City # 1 – Eupora # 3
Wow !!!!!! what a football year we are having…..
Oh, go Eagles, yeah my boy is on the team
water bill is outrageous here. I lived in Iowa for several years before moving back to Mississippi, the water bill in Burlington Iowa was 30.00 per month for water, sewer and garbage. the bill came every 3 months. Most of Iowa was this way, they didn’t use water meters everyone paid same rate, business paid higher rate.They didn’t have to buy meters, no one had to read meters, couldn’t break so they didn’t have to repair or replace. Saved city money, made city money, saved the consumer money, everyone was happy and satisfied.
I lived in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, California, Texas and Alabama and Monroe County Mississippi has the highest overall water bills I’ve had to pay. someone needs to get control of it. Charging to tap into water main for new service crazy and illegal.
Inspire will start K-3 only. There will not be a high school.
Thank you to all of the military personnel serving our country!!! I appreciate your sacrifice!!!
School closings for Mississippi I live in new hope Lowndes County
Dish Network will not allow a Dish Customer to watch the game on channels 5251 or 7761 unless you have the complete channel package or subscribe to ESPN SEC channel for $26 a week. So I guess I will not be watching MSU vs Auburn.
The name is Janie Dendy, not Jamie. I know this lady.
Thanks for pointing that out! I’ve made the correction.
I knew Hoyt and Rozelle Ming who lived within eyesight of my Grandpa and Grandma King’s house on Highway 9 about two miles north of Ackerman,MS. I spent a lot of time with my grandparents and remember the pipe smoking Mr. Ming and slender Mrs. Ming as good neighbors. I now live on my grandparent’s farm.
Mr. Ming was a small farmer like many in Mississippi at that time. He sold sweet potato plants every spring to everyone in this area. At the time my family lived farther up Highway 9 from Ackerman. As A young boy I recall riding a school bus to school and seeing the smoke from fires in sawdust potato beds keeping the cut potatoes warm so they would sprout for early spring plants.
I never heard the Minus perform in the 1950s but I did hear them play and sing at a Civil War enactment at the fort on the road to Grenada Lake when living in Grenada, MS in the 1970s.
Of course there is no picture/pictures or anything. Anybody can say that their house is haunted. Why no proof? Probably because people here in columbus will do anything and everything for attention
It is sad to see that we the people are still stuck on stupid. For instance the position Mr. McDaniel want overturned because Senator Cochran won is really crazy. What does he mean by they don’t share our values, African Americans long before voting democratic voted republican they did not leave the republican party, the republican party left them.
Sure hope this family consults a laywer on this death. No excuse for this loss.
I feel sorry for the son but it’s no excuse to open fire on another person even though I would bet he/she was one of those laft lane huggers that wants to run 45 mph all the while blocking traffic.
These left lane huggers needs to be ticketed ever time law enforcement sees them driving in the left lane……..
Did this company not have a Lock Out/Tag Out Procedure in place, this is awful that a life was lost over a simple safety procedure.
Hope OSHA does their job!!!
Thank goodness a trip to the west without having to go to ATL !!! Great news!
She was found in his van, with all evidence pointing to he did the crime, he should have had the gas chamber, electric chair, noose, firing squad or lethal injection by now. Cut out this fancy footwork on legal challenges, and fry him, pronto. He does not deserve more new trials unless he repents with a contrite heart, let the Lord sort him out. I am tired of coddling these killers. ISIS or otherwise, it is a war on women when they are allowed to live a life sentence when he did not allow the young lady to live out her life.
Police are seeking this person of interest
Brandon h Anaya
Our organization is the Wives of Warriors law enforcement wives group. Not the wives of wounded warriors! Thank you for attending our event! We appreciate it greatly.
Well he was only trying to take care of his family .. If mississippi was not the last state on everything and increasing wages more that 7.25 some poeple wouldnt have to turn to the streets for help…However the situation turn out keep your head up.. EVERYONE make mistake
Thanks to WCBI for the great coverage of our event yesterday. It was a great success with more than 500 visitors on the ground at the airport. We had 4 full flights of passengers on the B25, 2 flights of the P51, and a great array of new and old airplanes on the field.
All in all a terrific celebration recognizing all our veterans, and Mr Lee especially. Thanks to Lt Gov Tate Reeves, Congressman Gregg Harper, Commissioner Mike Tagert, and Col Mac McArthur for coming in to support our program.
It was a great day for our city and county! Many thanks to pilot in command, Beth Jenkins, and crew of the Devil Dog B25 from Georgetown, TX; to Claude Hendickson for his P51 with pilot Wayne, and for Mike Shieffer who flew in the CAF Corsair F4U for the event. To Carey Hardin and Roy Kinsey for their formation Stearman flights, to Bert Zeller for the Navion aerobatic team, and all those “behind the scenes” folks who made the event go off flawlessly.
I would like to say thanks for my blessing. An giving back was such a blessing to so many people’s. I was there for free gas but in the midst of it all I felt God moving right out there in the parking lot. I’m just so excited to have met the members. An pastor of this devine church of God. I will be visiting Sunday Morning 10:00 Glory be to God.
Hi everybody we are chainsaw collectors from Virginia and this was our first time to Mississippi , we were invited to bring some relics to the Mid-south forestry equipment show to show case how the old chainsaws once ruled the forestry industry , we are always looking for a new venue to display the saws !!!! Most all of our show saws will run , there are 2-man and one man saws ,
our saws date back from the early 40′s up into the 80′s .
We had a great time and hope to return in 2016 !!!
this is SUPER-GREAT
this is SUPER-GREAT.
If someone gets a life sentence how are they going to pay $1,633.50? Crazy!!!
How about a city forcing someone to get a lease agreement with a lessee so that they can get the lights and water turned on, then they call about an overdue bill when the neighbor is caught digging a trench to hide an electrical cord and running a water hose next door to a house they are renovating? Then the police chief runs out saying they recorded the lessor on recording saying they would use their 2nd Amendment rights on the perpetrator? Is there not an obligation for the police chief to protect the injured lessor? Especially when they were running the lights to a shed that was stolen under a fraudulent estate sale that never went through probate within the State of Mississippi. When the police chief records a person without their knowledge, is that not a violation of their 4th Amendment rights against the lessor?
Cochran has not done anything for Miss. in many years, except put his name on another building, and building, and building….and so on and on.
This turkey is totally for himself and the Washington folks….sad the people of Miss. continue to elect the same problem over and over……that is why we are in the trouble we are in. Continue to do the same thing over and over and you get the same results…..last or next to last in ever market there is.
But vote for him again.
I do not want this to go through. My granddaughter is in special classes and been in New Hope School for 5 years and she does not do well with change at all. This is awful.
Smithville tpwnspeople (inside city limits) had their water bill raised earlier this year. I know, I am one of them!!
what they are trying to convince Brandon Presley is to raise water bills for those outside of city limits. Smithville Rural Water.
Towns people really have no voice because we elected our mayor and Board members and THEY are our voice. (Even if we dont like it!)
However, those outside the city limits (excluding those who are within a mile of the city limits) they have Brandon Presley as their voice.
That is how it was explained at the public hearing last week from Comissioner Presley himself!
Hi, I’m a big fan! I watch Mid-Morning everyday, Beautiful features and lovely personality .
I was a patient of dr. White as a matter of fact i was his 4th patient at his 1st pain clinic on chubby dr. When u are truly in pain, who wants to sit in with the doc talkin about your life. He ordered a urine test EVERY MONTH to make sure the patient had only the correct meds in their system & he has had to dismiss lots of patients! He ALWAYS had time to ask u if your pain meds were working & make sure i kneq how to use my pain ball & make sure i was exercising as well as i could. He was & im sure still is a very compassionate doctor. I really miss him! Every time i see a particular nurse in another office i ALWAYS ask about him. I care about him cuz he ALWAYS seemed to care about me & my family & my feelings. Good luck dr white hope u get ur license back & ur life back to normal!
I would venture to guess the state of homeless children in Mississippi is caused by the habitual use of drugs by the parents of these children, which leads to the parents not caring about the health and welfare of their children. I would suggest the FEMA trailers left over from Katina be used to house some of these children. It is crazy to want to legalize marijuana when that is the gateway drug which leads to at least 90% of these problems. Sad for the children.
I am praying for you guys and I will do what I can to help. Hopefully someone will see this who has a job to offer and make it available to Yvette’s husband, Warrent. I know for a fact he is a hard worker and does not mind working. God bless you guys and my prayer is that you will not lose your home. Praise God in advance for the victory…
Thank You for acknowledging Truck Driver appreciation week. .
I love golfing,that’s something I do on weekends to relax from working all week. I think it will be nice to come out, and see professional play I’m so excited!
Communion at Catholic and Episcopal Church of 100+ people, “Alcohol is likely consumed” will have to have permits? Security?
so if you are getting married in Columbus this weekend, and having a reception with 100+ people and alcohol, you will be shutdown because there is no way to meet the 5 day in advance permit. Bride-zilla unleashed.
So if you have a wedding reception at the Trotter, provide alcohol to 100+ guests, you will be required to have security, insurance and pay a 75$ fee. this does not seem right.
Or you are having a class reunion at the EMCC Country Club and have 100+ guests and serve alcohol, you will be required the same?
Does this mean most wedding receptions 100+ guests, alcohol at a venue in Columbus will have to be security and insured and must pay 75$ permit??
This is a knee jerk reaction to some bad events in small places. this new law does not event deal with the small places that the shootings were at! It does infringe a lot of mandated costs on a already fragile business industry. I have been involved in large events in columus 2 times a year for the past 3 years, average attendance of 500+. Now this makes those events ALOT harder to do.
Well this was my knee jerk reaction to this article, I will have to think this one through more.
This is crazy, there is nothing wrong with spanking/whipping a child when they are bad. The government needs to stay out of raising a family, they can’t do anything else so why do they think they have a right here. Now if there were actual abuse it would be different.
The lady’s insurance company should be paying for Lisa’s medical expenses, however they are not responsible for Lisa’s lost wages or other bills while she is recovering.
There is no excuse for a driver doing this, but cyclists need to wake up to the fact this is happening more and more, with disastrous results. There are positive steps they can take to make sure they are seen by drivers–be aware that if you are riding on a shady road that you may blend into the shadows at the road’s edge, wear bright colors and a flashing light even if it does look geeky for a serious athlete. Even if you are not seen you can improve your odds by not wearing earbuds so that you hear a car behind you sooner and can even detect the change in the sound of the engine if the driver slows down, and be even geekier and wear a helmet mirror or mirror on your glasses. THat allows you to see cars approaching from behind, gives you a chance to make yourself more obvious, and to determine whether you have been seen so that you can take evasive action. Drivers are not going to get any better–they are going to be old and vision-impaired, they are going to be young and texting, they are going to be drunk or distracted, or they are simply going to be mean and out to get you.
Why is the old lady’s insurance company not picking up the tab? That’s what insurance is for!
Her car was silver, not black as stated above in the article.
What in God’s name could make a man want to kill his own kids……then treat their bodies with such disrespect. God have mercy on those children.
I thought Todd Hall is the police chief in Gordo, not Fayette as you stated….?
This is why people over a certain age need to have sight tests done annually in order to be eligible to drive. Such a sad situation for everyone involved! Praying for all!!
Then there are those women who will claim to be abused, leave their husbands of 38 years and tell all their friends and neighbors what an abusive person he was, when there was no abuse going on at all, if any, it was the wife’s abusive, controlling, manipulative manner. When someone writes down every infraction of any person she feels has wronged her in journals for 40 years, all the while going to every ladies meeting and church meeting within an area from Gatlingburg to Branson, one would think that the very act of picking up and moving to Safe, Inc, in Tupelo could be seen right through as being a mental illness, not an abuse.
Crime is a element that will exist as it has throughout history however history has proven govern parties that place restriction and/or policies to protect general public tend to have greater success with different crime types. If the city of Columbus take a proactive stance by setting up beta stations throughout columbus inner city to be available in the communities. This is a start to help public with understanding the city is taken measure to protect the general public. Again this will not stop crime however it will give residents of columbus direct line of communication to law enforcements. The city is beautiful and full of residents who can help officers guide Columbus back to it’s beauty however law enforcement cannot do this with typical patrol of area. The officers need to be apart of the community to help prevent or provide help city desperately need. You have to send officers out into the community to correct this, it’s the only way to have better chance with this type of crime.
Omg. People really need to stop fighting and shooting and just get alone in this world, foreal foreal .
Horrible! Just horrible!!!!
I believe this gator is what almost sunk our boat. We hit something that put a hole in our fiberglass boat and we had to get our boat to a bank before we sank so we pulled off the river at that private dock across from the river park.
hahahaha….are you just now noticing there are two standards in this country……you are damned if you are a white male, but praised if black. Now if you are a white female hooked up with a thug black male you are ok but just a hoe…….look at the tv, blacks, blacks and more blacks…..maybe a white female with a black man…..civil rights!!!!
WHY is his sentence far more than some with far worse crimes?
This recipe sounds amazing. You are a natural. Can you ship those as breakfast bars. Totally loved all the heathy ingredients.
Need to get the facts right this was not stolen property this all acquired when he had a well established business.
will Alabama always play Tenn.?
Kimberly did an excellent job!! Very professional! A natural in front of the camera and yes I will try this recipe!
That seems like such a simple yet creative Oatmeal breakfast cake recipe! Kimberly Calmes Crowder did an excellent job presenting. She should have a permanent spot on the Food Network.
Thank you for offering such a good prize for children.
Has a black person **EVER** been charged with a hate crime? When you’re told to get out of a place because it’s not safe for whites, it’s obvious that he was beaten because he’s white. Typical coward cops afraid the black community will complain if a black person is ever charged with a hate crime. Why doesn’t the white community gather and march and protest? Oh yeah, if white ever complain about blacks beating up a white person it’s racism. But when blacks march about a white person shooting a black it’s “Civil Rights.”
How stupid is the police chief? It’s a “premeditated hate crime” you imbecile. They hunted down the victims & attacked them. There were reports that Knighten was armed. Why didn’t he open fire? It would have been justified. They guy who was arrested should be thanking his lucky stars that Knighten didn’t use his right to defend himself with lethal force. Of course the liberal MSM would have twisted it around & made the attackers innocent victims.
Al, an old fashioned street brawl? 7 against 2? Are you kidding me. They were told before they went in that it wasn’t a safe place for white people?
It really doesn’t matter what you believe or what he did the fact that he drove away to another place and they followed him there just to assault him shows that they are in the wrong I don’t care if he called them a N* word they followed him to assault him, people like you who don’t see the obvious and think that criminals are always innocent in some way are pathetic. Here’s to you running into your fair share.
I can not believe a small increase in taxes would prevent some people from voting to improve our school system. Who gets off their couch to go vote NO to our kids future.
it dose not matter what you call the crime if the man dies it will be first degree murder charges on those blackmen
What I read was that a “man” was causing problems inside a restaurant and was asked to leave. Doesn’t sound like the employees had an issue until the white guy came in and began disturbing the peace (with other patrons) or group. Stick to the facts people and wait for the investigation to be concluded. This guy may not be as innocent as they are making him seem.
I hope you get to enjoy the same treatment one day soon. Then we can all say you obviously not as innocent as they are making you seem.
Ok, so it is acceptable to report that Michael Brown was a teenager, but forget to mention that he was an 18 yr old, 6’4″, 200+ lb young man but NOT ok to report that a white man was attacked by a group of black men but leave out the fact that perhaps he was drunk? Cause clearly he deserved the beating since he was drunk and running his mouth. Cause, I mean, apparently that justifies the black people in their beating of him.
I’m afraid I’m missing the difference.
So, the white folks need to keep themselves in check until the investigation is complete but the black folks can go ahead and start looting as soon as the shots are fired?
I DO NOT condone any type of racism. I’m sick and tired of the black communities making everyone look bad by acting the fools and looting and destroying their own neighborhoods!
Living in West Point for the past thirty-two years, I have witness many times problems come from outsiders, I believe there is more to do this incident than what is being said.
As a former police officer now pastor of a Christian Fellowship, it saddens me to see how things could be escalated out of proportion. Was this a racial hatred incident, I do not know I wasn’t there to witness this incident. Can this incident be defused, yes, if those who claim to walk accordingly to His Word, will speak up and out and tell others not to incite more violence, but to bring healing and peace to our community. The problem here is not racial, but sin and the power of demonic spirits that cause division amongst the brethren.
I am a grandfather of a mixed child who I love so dearly. It is not the color of the skin we should judge but the hearts of all those involved. Hatred stirs strife, but the Peace of God brings unity.
Outsiders who speak negativity about our community are like arm-chair quarterbacks. Unless you live here keep your mouth closed. We are a community of God fearing people both black and white.
The secular media and liberals look to stir strife are controlled by demonic forces, so rebuke our adversary Satan and those who are controlled by him in the Name of Jesus (Yeshua HaMashiach) the Messiah, and by the power of His blood that was shed for our sins. Let us (genuine believers) speak out the truth of His Word that all may hear.
Unless any of you were eye witnesses you don’t know what happened. It does not matter if Ralph is quiet as a church mouse. People change in the heat of the moment. I do not believe the entire truth has been told on either side yet. There has been a lot of embellishing going on in all the articles I have read. I hope justice prevails and the guilty pay the price for the crime they committed, whoever it might be.
This was not an act of Aggravated Assault. This is far worse. The assailants had time to think and deliberate before leaving the Waffle House following Ralph to the Huddle House. That clearly makes it PREMEDITATED, and a clear act of Attempted Murder.
I also know Ralph. He is as quiet and mild mannered as a church mouse. Always polite. This was clearly premeditated and attempted murder since the cowards CHOSE to follow them to the Huddle House. They had time to think and dismiss but decided to engage by stalking anyway. Ralph is lucky to be alive. His injuries are savagely horrible. This was more than just hate. The act was premeditated and should be tried as attempted murder.
Now do you think the whites should act like the blacks did in Ferguson and go psycho in that city? What good will it do? We don’t act that way, why are you blacks acting that way? All you are doing is bringing yourself down and making blacks look bad. Get a life, get an education and you will have better things to do than this. Shame on you and it’s disgusting. Some whites have done something similar to blacks one on one and there is no cause for this. It is in their demented brains. Acting like monkeys, no monkeys are smarter than this.
Ease up linda. Your inbreeding is showing.
The incident in West Point at the local Huddle House is unfortunate, however no one should be labeled as animal species that they are not. All human creations are homosapiens. No need to call any race of people a species they are not.
Actually, she acting like a monkey…not are monkeys. Look up simile. She said nothing offensive to anyone other than the person acting like the ape.
First of all blacks are not acting out, Second, I am a black woman, not a monkey. Third, very well educated. Fourth, if you feel like protesting go to Okolona were the suspect come from this was not a West Point person that did this. True we have our share of crime but everyone just about know everyone here.
“Tamika” you’re an idiot. Thanks.
Everyone just pause a minute.
This is truly disgusting and it shines a bad light on West Point. I am a black man and like most people we are proud of our race relations in our city. Many of my best and valued friends are white and this is not a reflection on me. These people were not from West Point anyway.
i have been knowing Ralph since he was a little boy. He was so drunk that he would not let the altercation go even after a patron from the Huddle House got up from his table and broke it up. He still kept on cussing folks out (The other guy with the pistol on his side was innocent and was only trying to break it up). But by no means am I advocating violence toward anyone black or white.
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO LEARN THAT EVERYONE BLEEDS RED. AS A MILITARY MAN I PUT MY LIFE ON THE LINE AND FOUGHT SIDE BY SIDE WITH WHITE PEOPLE TO KEEP AMERICA FREE AND PROUD. AND WE CANT GET ALONG HERE!! DISGUSTING.
AGAIN DONT BLAME WEST POINT; IT’S IDIOTS THAT DONT BELONG HERE. PROSECUTE THEM TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!!!!!!!!!!!
AMEN .. we all bleed red !
You’re right, it’s a sad world. Someone has got to start teaching black children to respect themselves because it’s not the parents, they’re usually on drugs or drunk, not all of them. But there should be a program to teach them they can have a good life instead of reverting to gang actions and drug actions. How ever did you get out? But, you have to get them when they are very young. You could always start something like that for the children when you get out of the service.
I wish there was a like button for what Mike said. We have got to stop on both sides because it isn’t right.
Nicely said Sir, nicely said. There’s enough stupidity going on right now as it is. We are all Americans, regardless of color. Adding to the hysteria serves no good purpose and promotes even more stupid acts!
Mike, good points. I think it all starts with having a relationship with Christ. But also by getting us Men to step up and be fathers to children and husbands to our wives. Having morals. And standing for something. I read the other day that last year 72% of Black children were born out of wedlock. (don’t know what white % is because I manly work with black youth but I am sure its high as well)
But this kind of behavior is right. If more men would step up to the plate, then we would be raising children that see race as less of an issue, and see each other for who we are in Christ.
But Im all with you on us a being Americans. To be honest I don’t like calling Americans (that happen to be black) African Americans. They are Americans. White Americans aren’t called European or Brittish Americans, etc. I lived in Africa a few months this year and Africans and the “African Americans” are and look very different. I don’t know, I just think this created term is dated and demeaning. Heritage is good, but if you were born in America, your an American. Not some kind of halvesees.
I don’t know that’s just my thought.
How could not be a hate crime? Just cause it was blacks beating the hell out of two white guys? At more than 3 to 1, it obviously shows a mob with intent to seriously injure or kill a heavily out numbered couple of fella’s. It was supposedly around 7 that participated in the beating, but 20 +or- minus followed with the intent to harrass or eventually participate! The man should have pulled the .45 he was legally carrying and thinned the heard! Why did it take so long for the cops to be called? Cause nobody in West Point of the minority group minds a couple white guys getting beat to death! Especially if its in the name of the Strong Arm Robbin “Gentle Giant” Mike Brown! The same one who quite possibly tried to beat an officer out of his weapon to use for what?
Grand Jury………..if it is as it sounds, start enhancing! Michael Brown needs Justice!
The white community doesn’t need to be retaliated against by black thugs.
100% hate crime. Poor ole boy. Sorry this white boy couldn’t have been thee to help. 16 from the 20 would have had a dent in em
If they are not charged with a “hate crime”….all hell is going to break loose in West Point.
Just keep moving along. There’s nothing to see here, since only the white guys were hurt.
We all need to be more like Christ! With all the injustices, prejudices, and discrimination, we forget to live like the Saviour. We are all trying to get to heaven. One thing about it though, there isn’t a Black or White heaven. If we can’t live together on earth, there’s no way the Lord will allow all that hate up there! It’s sad what happened. But everything does happen for a reason. We all need to be praying!
Justin, you left out some important details. Why bring up the hate crime enhancement if you’re not going to bother informing your readers that the victims were both white, and that racial slurs were directed at them prior to the beating? Did you also forget to tell your readers the victims were followed to a second location by a mob of angry minorities of unspecified ethnicity? I thought they taught these things in journalism school, but I suppose they dropped the 5 W’s in favor of PC propagandizing.
The top half is an Associated Press report, the bottom half (with the mug shot) is a copy-edited press release from the West Point Police Department. The bylines of each story denote the author, neither of which include my name. I did not write anything you’re reading.
I think what they mean is that if the situation was reversed and two black me were beat up by whites it would immediatly be considered a hate crime and would have also been covered by media nationally. I also agree that everyones blood is red and we are all a part of the human race together. Until we stop pointing out white or black it will never change. What difference does it make? Black or white I would never have been able to sit there and watch someone get beaten they bad without at least trying to intervene. Praying for all those involved
If we don’t start investigating and prosecuting black on white hate crimes, then justice will be nothing more than a form of slavery. In the meantime, I suggest law abiding citizens carry a gun, and shoot to kill. If the police won’t protect us we must protect ourselves. Prayers for the family of the victim and for the souls of the thugs that attacked him.
We need to get rid of these terms “hate crime” and “racism.” Look at how divisive this is. How do you gang up on someone and NOT have hate? Most blacks are racist, I admit; but most have no love for their own families or communities either–but only excuses. The focus on race only divides.
It saddens me that acts of violence continue to overtake even the small towns. I wasn’t there, but why does it have to be considered a hate crime because two white men got assaulted? It simply stated that they were arguing with some more men who happened to be black. If it was all whites or all blacks fighting, would they have considered it a hate crime or just a fight that got out of control? People, we are already living a lie by calling ourselves the UNITED STATES. Down south, we have been segregated for years. Nowadays, it appears that racism is all over the world. I am really tired of this. These acts only show that we are not united at all.
Its about time to take the law into our own hands. The police have become spineless from fear and Obama is bowing down to his brothers. The country is in the toilet.
It was a fight. One guy received the worst of it. Therefore, no crime of hate exist. It was just an old fashion street brawl. I saw a lot of them in the military.
There were at least 7 guys on 1 guy! How was he not to receive “the worst of it”? Sitting in a booth at Huddle House is not a street brawl. Dragging someone from a booth and outside…. Still not a street brawl. EVERYONE needs to read more articles and see the truth of what is going on here. The family is worried, scared, sad, upset, mad – you name it! Have some respect please!
Very very rarely do events like these get tried as a hate crime, and even less often do they get convicted as a hate crime. This isn’t about the race of the victims and perpetrators, it’s just the way the laws work. If it does meet the criteria of a hate crime, then it’s up to the prosecutor to convince the courts to add extra sentencing. But as the person above me points out, the prosecutor might have a hard time showing that the victim was target for no other reason than his race if there was an argument preceding the event. Still, it’s sad and crappy. Doesn’t mean it’s a hate crime.
Everyone just pause a minute. This crime was not committed by people from West Point but by people from another town. We in West Point are proud of or city and me myself being a black man was very upset how this happened. I happened to be at the Huddle House after leaving the Waffle House because of the same argument and they all came down there. Weems was very intoxicated and would not be quiet.( I’ve known him a long time and i know that he fights a lot when he gets drunk; but by no reason am I advocating violence toward anyone. He was basically so drunk that he could not defend himself and these people took advantage of that. The other guy with the pistol was only trying to break up the fight (mcKnight) and was collateral damaged.
The security guard should have called the police when it first started inside the restaurant and that way all could have been avoided but she took her sweet time. Even the kitchen staff did nothing but go to the window to watch. I tried to call 911 but the battery was dead and about the time someone else tried the police came up.
This really hurts me badly as some of my best friends are white and I enjoy our relationships as well as learning some of their culture as well as teaching them some of our culture. What happened in St. Louis was a terrible tragedy and God will sort it out. The more fuel you add to the fire the longer it burns.
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO LEARN, EVERYONE’S BLOOD IS RED. AS A SOLDIER I PUT MY LIFE ON THE LINE AND TRAINED SIDE BY SIDE WITH WHITES TO KEEP AMERICA PROUD AND FREE.
ALL I AM SAYING IS TREAT PEOPLE THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED.
I PRAY THAT GOD GIVES MR WEEMS THE STRENGTH TO RECOVER AND I HOPE THESE FEW WORDS WILL INSPIRE SOMEBODY.
Not everyone from West Point, Mississippi is an ill educated jack Ass. I assure you that I can spell as well as read. Furthermore, over this being a hate crime, it’s possible. It is also possible it was perpetrated by people of the same race. Black on black crime is rampant in that city. So unless you are a witness, you can’t say it has anything to do with Ferguson, Missouri. In which case, if you are a witness, step forward, and stop obstructing justice.
I read the story. Did you? Aparently not, and you apparently didn’t read my comment either. Allow me to quote the article:
“Knighten told AP on Sunday that a man had waved him over outside a Waffle House and told him politely that people were upset by the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and it wasn’t a safe place for whites.”
That appears to be a witness. I didn’t say anything about people from West Point not being able to spell. I said whoever committed this crime. Get your shit straight.
The distinction between an assault and a hate crime is that if you were to remove the disagreement between the two parties, the assault vanishes. If the basis of the assault was purely racially motivated, then, if I’m not mistaken, it would be considered a hate crime. As it stands, both parties had a disagreement that may have included racially charged subject matter, but it is not the singular cause for the assault.
I think this is why they aren’t charging it as a hate crime.
This is totally a hate crime, but unfortunately they will not be charged for that. The people that beat this man probably can’t even spell Ferguson, Missouri.
How many of you who’ve made comments were actually there? My guess is none.
Pray for all involved and quit trying to stir the pot of animosity.
It was a hate crime. Pure and simple. I’m sick to death of these rampaging blacks getting off scott free on these types of racist, hate crimes. The second a white guy lays one little finger on a rampaging black, Sharpton shows up sticking his ugly face in front of any camera he can find, screaming RACIST! RACIST!
Since when is a group of thugs attacking one person considered a ‘fight’?
The local law enforcement makes the determination of hate crime, the chief is black there. Now you know that part of the story. Also, whites are not included in hate crime statutes. Wake up to this mess people before its too late.
Racial hatred led to this man’s injuries. If he dies are they going to hush it up to cover up a black on white “Hate Crime.” Being “Politically Correct” has no place in truly Objective Journalism. Truth is Racial Hatred and the Racial Crimes that result from it, are always a Mortal Sin, unless the person is crazy, out of their head. I will pray for this man’s recovery and for black people to start living as if they want to live in a Civil Society or not. But, Christ said, via St Paul’s Epistles that you will reap what you sew in someone else’s life. Jesus said, “Those who live by the sword, will die by the sword.” Let’s hope these criminals turn themselves in and “take their punishment like a man.” Cowards are a “dime a dozen.” A real man owns up to his mistakes to God and mankind, and turns over a new leaf. God forgives, but you have to be sorry for all of your sins, confess them and do penance for them, the rest of your life. This guy who you nearly killed will be living and re-living that night, for the rest of his life – trying to forgive a senseless act of violence. Racism is a sin. When it is with malice and forethought, it is always; in my book, a Mortal Sin. I will pray for the victim and his attackers, to get a grip on their lives and turn to Christ. Only God can straighten out the messes you make in your lives and other folks lives. I’m just pointing to Him.
I have known Brittany for many years. Honestly I have never met a purer soul. This article did a horrible job of properly depicting the type of person this coward stole from us. Brittany was a college graduate that severed our country. A kind spirit that would much rather hang out with her grandparents than in the club. Her father is in law enforcement so she has always carried a gun for her protection. I could not fathom a reason for anyone to take her life. She did not deserve this. The only thing that brings me peace is knowing she is in a better place. I will continue to pray for her family.
Sometimes we think the people involved in stuff like this are thugs. Here are some facts about the victim Ralph Weems:
- Honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corps
- Iraq war veteran
- Currently working his way through Mississippi State University
- Shot for the Sporting Clays team at MSU
Now, as his life weighs in the balance, his future is probably ruined due to the severe brain damage.
The family is still very hopeful!
Do not misunderstand this, please. I do not know the victim, and I was not there as a witness. I am not saying anything positive or negative about him or anyone else.
But it is important that we stop trying to prove someone was in the right by resorting to this sort of list.
Being in the military and attending college are not reserved for innocent, peaceful people. So pointing these things out says little, if anything, about whether he provoked someone or even threw the first punch.
Again, not saying he did or didn’t. Just saying what I typed.
Sorry we couldn’t come to the funeral but we love you dearly! I’m going to miss you
So…..wppd, knowing that the attackers were yelling racial slurs, yet they refuse to call it what it is! If a group of white men yelled “white power!” then bash a black man’s skull into the concrete. That’s what it would’ve been called. #purebull
Where in this article does it say the black men were yelling racial slurs?
It said so in other articles and they stated they were getting even for Ferguson, so get over yourself.
Who’s getting even for Ferguson, the black commited a crime so the rest roit. Now this, wake up…..blacks are 16% of the population but commit 59% of the serious crimes in this country.
Jump on me….I can promise you one thing, you won’t jump again.
So you’re saying they should just draw and pull on you instead? Stop acting like a clown.
I agree with you that disparate enforcement is ridiculous. Frankly, I think it is unconstitutional to have laws that punish some assailants more than others because of their speech/thoughts. Aggravated assault is aggravated assault — prosecute them as such and move on.
But bragging like a big man about how you’re prepped to kill as soon as anyone “jumps” you — you sound irrational and do not further any cause.
Funny. This can’t be called a hate crime because the VICTIMS are white and the PERPITRATORS are black. Pathetic.
Your article also implies that racial slurs were EXCHANGED. Minimal investigation says the blacks, while beating the whites, chanted this was happening because of what happened in Missouri.
Find the criminals.
How is this not a hate crime??? Our justice system is so politically correct they are afraid to call it what it is. If it was the other way around CNN would already be here.
Political correctness is divisive and unjust. It is dividing races, rich/poor, and everything under the sun. Political correctness is not the way to live. People should always try to be civil and even kind to one another, no matter their color. But putting this race above that race and politicizing it all over the news is ridiculous. I remember when they called George Zimmerman white. I don’t think he had much white in him, if any. The president has more than he does. A white unarmed kid was shot in Utah by a black officer. He didn’t even rob a store, but he did have a white T-shirt on, as a robber had on who apparently had recently robbed a store nearby, and he had head phones on. Maybe he didn’t hear whatever he was ordered to do, but he’s dead now. So where is Holder? Where is the speech from Obama? Where is the daily coverage on the news! I’m so sick of all this racist stuff. I want to go back to everyone being Americans, which we are. Then maybe we can have more peace. I want to go back to Freedom of Speech. Will I get offended by someone? Possibly, but that’s the price of freedom. Sticks and stones…you know the rest.
Really? Not a hate crime??? If he dies will it become a hate crime??? Is… I repeat … IF HE WAS BLACK… It would be. Hate crime !!!!!!!
WOW, not a hate crime???? I bet you would not be saying that if the perps were white and the victim was black! Let’s tell the truth for once media!!!!!
The article didn’t say who was yelling the racial slurs. Are you assuming it was the black guy? Hmmm?
Angela…it has already been stated that it WAS the blacks spouting the racial slurs, this is NOT the only article on the subject.
The difference is that they had participated in a verbal altercation; quite a long and large argument ( even though racial slurs being thrown around) . But no one went out looking for someone to beat up ( hate crime ) because of the color of their skin ( or other hate for any “group” inspired attack ). Only the one arguing was beaten up…. no other “white people”. When you get into a heated argument with someone, or worse yet, a group of people; the beating was in response to the argument itself, according to police.
Every time someones fights with someone it’s not a hate crime, even though after investigation it still may prove to be one! Please don’t carry a chip on your shoulder and such resentment because racism didn’t suddenly disappear. and black people by far have it the worst in the country ( obviously dur to long history ). Throughout our history, until recent past, black folks have always got the rotten end of the stick. To put it mildly. In fact, while white American parade around in stores and restaurants with AK-47′s for the “Open carry” movement, a young black Dad was shot in a Walgreen’s for having a toy gun in the toy department. It’s sad so many think it’s duck soup for black folks, while their teenagers shot and killed so often by white folks. Just reality.
“But no one went out looking for someone to beat up.”
When the mob followed the victims to a separate location (Huddle House) they were, apparently, looking to beat someone up.
There’s a problem here. She may have completed her sentence and obligations, but she still
hasn’t accepted the fact that what she did was wrong and against the law. She herself said:
“I still feel to this very day that what I did saved tax payers thousands, if not millions of dollars. It helped to keep our state of Mississippi State Department of Corrections from the brink of irreparable damage,” says Liddell.
Which leads me to believe that if the opportunity to do it again or something else which she
believes is right, regardless if lawful or not, she will.
How can he get a reduced sentence? If he’s not going to be charged as a habitual offender then neither should anyone else. Plus he has a child pornography charge. There should be no way they could even be looking into him getting a reduced sentence. If that is the case why can’t my husband have a reduced sentence and take away the habitual offender charge for only having a little possession of cocaine. Mississippi laws seem to only work for white people no matter what they do. My husband never hurt anybody and he gets 8 years mandatory. This guy hurt children and is about to get a reduced sentence wow!
Thank you for giving an impartial article on this subject. The person there doing the interview was very courteous and very nice to us. Thank you!!
It is time we quit using social security numbers for anything but taxes, then these hackers won’t be able to steal identities!
I knew this couple, so sad. Prayers for Sharon and the rest of the family.
Columbus Ms.is beginning to look like chicago because of all these outsiders moving here .yall please take yall angry butts back to hour own city..
As a friend and collegue, I know firsthand that this young woman, Brittany Foster, was a wonderful and generous spirit. She was a college graduate from Southern University, an dedicated and hard working Weyerhaeuser forester, and served our country in the military. She was a person with a purpose for good. Brittany will be missed here on Earth, but she is with her Heavenly Father today.
My aUNT WANTED ME TO ask can tell new weather man please tell the weather forecast let the last one cause he didn’t tell it none of last week. Thank you.
Yep….along with women getting raped in the mall, drive by shootings, people shot and killed in their homes, car jackings, drugs, robberies, drugs, and more drugs…….did I say drugs? What a great place, reminds one of New Orleans……
Ed – Get your facts right.
Facts are right, all these things and more have happened in the fair city of Columbus, now this. Can a person such as this young woman go to work and not be afarid of someone shooting her……the city of Columbus has gotten bad, crime, crime, and more crime.
Facts are facts…….
Wait…. Columbus has a Buffalo Wild Wings ?
Columbus is such a nice city!!
You got that right…..Thug City at it’s best
I have known Brittany for nearly 15 years and her heart and soul were pure. She would have NEVER carried a gun with her unless she feared for either her life or the life of a loved one. Brittany was a kind, gentle and caring woman, but the way the article is written almost paints a similar veil to that of the killer’s.
Brittany was a swert person, and always a good person in all the time I knew her. I went to school with her, and we had alot of the same friends. We know she must have feared for her life if she was even carrying a gun. Brittany never would have harmed anyone, and she did not deserve this I’m sure. I am praying for her family in this difficult time. So tragic! Rest in peace my sweet friend!!
I agree with you Glory Griffin, and I went to school with Brittany. She wad a good dear friend, and was a sweet good person. I was thinking the same thing when I read that she had a gun too. She apparently feared for her life. May you rest in peace my sweet friend!
This is said.I pray for all the families involved.They all have lost a love one to this unnecessary event.Every christian,prayer warrior and intercessory I ask you to keep Britney parents covered under the blood that they may find peace and strength in the midst of this storm.
Rest in Paradise Brittney! We love u and will miss you sweet girl!
Ive known Brittany for 11 years and if she was carrying a weapon she must of feared for her life because she was kind and loving and would never hurt anyone. She was 28 years old. And she was an amazing woman.
I’m so tired of these young and old black on black crime here in the Columbus area, my God please have mercy on this city.
That report was not all true the lady had not been in the loft
The lady had not been at the loft I was there 5 till close
I’m a bartender at the loft and I worked last night and this girl never came to the loft!! So you need to talk to the business your going to put out for the world to see and get your facts straight!!
This is just the beginning of what’s to come from the outer limits of trash creeping into Columbus over the past 15 years. Most of these people are coming from Brooksville, Aberdeen, Crawford, Artesia, Macon, and West Point. The decent people that live in Columbus are leaving. It’s sad what the youth of Lowndes County thinks are the important things of life. New pair of Jordan’s, $3,000 chrome wheels on a $1,000 Crown Victoria. It’s just a matter of time that the trash of Columbus destroys and runs out all the major retail chains. I think that side of the town needs to focus on getting educations instead of rap music and new shoes. Call it a racist remark but these are the cold hard facts that everyone’s been wanting to sugarcoat for years. Rap music promotes violence, drugs, and murder. You’ll see more with time what seeds have been sewn here.
Apparently you don’t watch your local news close enough because most of the crimes that occur are by those that are born and raised right there in Columbus, so don’t blame it on the “trash” creeping in from the outer limits. And no it’s not a race thing at all because both black and white residents of Columbus are committing violent crimes against each other. It’s a Columbus thing, so please take responsibility and speak on the bad seeds you people in Columbus are raising up!!
Your comment makes no sense… “Most of these people are coming from Brooksville, Aberdeen, Crawford, Artesia, Macon, and West Point.” “It’s just a matter of time that the trash of Columbus…” So are you blaming the surrounding areas or just Columbus? And as for the racist remark about rap music your whole comment sounds racist to me. Just my opinion that I am entitled to.
I agree with you @ResidentOfWestPoint and @Jada. @TheStormIsYetToCome is blaming other people who have moved into Columbus for the problems that Columbus is facing today. Columbus has NEVER been The “Friendly” City in all honesty. There’s nobody here but old racist people and young children (some) who do not have guidance. Stop trying to sugar coat everything and look at it for what it is. Columbus has been this way for a long time. The crimes that are being committed in Columbus come from people who were born, raised and who have been in Columbus for a long time. People from Macon, Crawford, Artesia, …. have nothing to do with the crimes that are being committed by CITIZENS of Columbus. That was definitely a racist remark and since you feel that way… it should be nothing for you to relocate.
A Storm Is Yet To Come I totally disagree with you I’m from Macon and when have you ever heard a Macon person coming to Columbus to kill someone ?? Never please don’t take the blame on what’s going on in your disfunctional city out on other cities !! Count how many deaths Columbus has had within the pass several years and now you tell me what’s the problem…a city or town don’t make a person kill another person it don’t matter where a person is from if that person has a heart to kill another person whether they are from Macon, Columbus, or any other surrounding city that’s that person not where they are from…instead of putting the blame on someone else’s city point the blame to your own city, citizens and law enforcement !! People it’s time to wake up people dying everyday instead of pointing fingers blaming and accusing get on your knees and pray, do something constructive to reduce the crime rate in Columbus something but not blame other people gosh it’s enough going on in this sinful world !! It’s happening in your town not anyone else’s so sweep around your front door before pointing the finger at others !!!
can you please site where you are getting your data to say “Traditionally, women don’t assault each other with guns; such assaults usually involve knives or similar weapons.”
FBI crime statistics, state and local law enforcement, local crime statistics, and 35 years covering the courts and law enforcement.
She was heard saying, “I didn’t mean to take a life.” What out come was she expecting? You can’t shoot at people with the intention of not hurrying them. That just doesn’t make sense.
Well that is why you don’t point guns and touch triggers. I was told if you don’t want to kill someone then do not point and pull. I have known Brittany since she came in the world and she was a good kid with a heart of gold and she did not deserve to leave this earth the way she did.
I think the state should give “ALL” drug users enough they could OD on…..let them do it, that’s the only way of cleaning the streets of that crap.
Some wildlife management areas, such as upper sardis needs to open the management area in October for hog hunting with dogs. Rather than just February only. Also be able to hunt the whole area instead of just certain areas. Bagley bottom is full of hogs but we cannot legally go on that land. Just in February alone, I caught 34 hogs with my dogs just on the weekends. That was just an area around a 2 mile range on the WMA. Officials set out catch pens but NEVER set them regularly. I hear true deer hunters complain all the time about how the hogs ruin their hunt. Regardless of what researchers say, they have taken over some places where I could go on any given mornin and hear a turkey. Past few years that hasn’t been the case! I walk the areas where I would see lots of turkey sign but all I see is where hogs root around. It drives the turkeys out looking for food elsewhere. The turkey and deer hunters will stop buying the wma permit if this continues. I know none of you will consider this, but if the state is truly interested in controlling the hog population then this is the best solution by far. The whole trapping thing is over rated. How are you gona catch hogs if you never set your traps and check them regularly? This is coming from an avid hunter of that area and not from some college grad researcher who comes once a year if that much. Until you are really serious about the problem then take someone like mine’s, advice and not an overpaid kids opinion on the problem. Take action or stop talking about the situation! This is just 1 wma and I’m sure there are many more with this same problem.
I’m sure all you white people did wrong way before any of this. Now you can’t be two sided Obama watching you!!! So you all wait its about to be the same law for everybody not just whites lets see how you handle jail time when black people take over Choctaw county. It’s been injustice toward us in Ackerman. But we gone stand together God bless America
I don’t think the brother should be charged for Parker’s death. Parker chose to take the drug. Just as a person choses to drink or smoke. We don’t arrest the liqueur store owner, bar owner or bartender when a person dies of alcohol poisoning. These were kids doing stupid stuff.
Are these idiots really what Columbus has become? Wake up Columbus, you have a full blown gang problem!
It wasn’t gang related as you can clearly see it doesn’t say that anywhere. So next time think before you speak plz.
Mr Nunnelee’s reelection is not a sure thing especially because of this incident. His representatives should make theirselves visible and start beating the bushes. We pray for quick and complete recovery.
The lethal dose of LSD is roughly 4,000 hits.
Clearly this was NOT an LSD overdose.
It took me less than 10 seconds on google to find this. Why are your writers too lazy to google ‘LD50 LSD’?
actually scientist think 200 hits could be a leathal dose they arent sure they are just assuming but seeings a cop got splashed when they raided a place making it in cali and a gallon dropped and they are guessing the spash he took was equal to 1k hits of liquid lsd and he was only hospitolized for a few weeks for mental shit nothing physical ill assume ur guess is closer to a lethal dose. it was prob some new synthetic version of lsd though kinda like bath salts is a diff form of meth or spice a new version of weed 10x more deadly than the real shit
It was 25i
Well considering you can’t overdose on acid I doubt it was that. More than likely it was a research chemical.
Just wanted to say that parker rodenbaugh and skylar okelly were best friends.
Another game you should watch is the annual Crosstown Classic in between Oxford and Lafayette, this game will be played on September 12, 2014. Both teams made a state title run only to watch their title hopes slip away, both teams have set their sights on making a trip back to the title game, and both teams have excellent football tradition among their programs. When Lafayette travels 3 miles down the road to Bobby Holcomb Field (Home of the Oxford Chargers), They will come out with fury after losing to their in city rival Oxford 30-0 last season. Oxford will have other ideas, trying to beat Lafayette for the third straight year.
Jared, I could not agree with you more. That game is going to be a phenomenal match-up between two teams that made it to the State Title last year. I think it’s one of the strongest football rivalries in the state and we can’t wait for it this year. Thanks for your comment!
WOW…..I can’t beleive this, all this crying and whining about a TV being off and some show not being on…..my God get a life!!!
Angel Omary is the devil in Lamar co!
i also heard that Angel Omary was involved in burning a old mans house down after she stole his seventeen thousand dollars he had hidden!! it was his life savings!! i also heard she had slept with law enforcement of Lamar Co before this happened.be careful who you set free for you may be their next victim!!!
My washer and dryer was severely damaged due to the ceiling falling
And neither one will work… I still have the dryer in the house and it won’t work the washing machine was removed
With talent like that, he on his way to congress!
Thank God its back up! I can’t miss another BB!!!
I was just about to call DirecTV a few minutes ago when the station came back on. I am really not one who complains often, but this kind of thing happens frequently with WCBI. A few months ago WCBI was off the air for 3 days. I watch CBS programming more than the other three put together, so when it’s off, I miss some of my favorite programs, although Big Brother is not one of them. Would someone please explain what the technical difficulties are and why WCBI seems to be the only affiliate that has this recurring problem?
Come on… Please get it back on before Big Brother!!! I’ve got to see the live double eviction!
PLEASE fix this before 7:55 tonight or we will all miss the biggest episode of the year!!! WE WILL BEG IF NECESSARY!
I DO NOT WANT TO MISS BIG BROTHER . I MISSED LAST NIGHTS EPISODE. PLEASE FIX THIS BEFORE BIG BROTHER COMES ON.
What about Big Brother
DItto – Big Brother is live tonight. It’s been off a LOOONNNGG time….
I believe it should be considered . Just to help the town grow with the taxes , that other towns are getting regardless . Keep all taxes here , you can’t stop people from driving to other towns , just to buy beer . There’s a lot of people that does drive drinking , just cause they have to go so far to get it . But I know Pontotoc , to many people that’s against it , drinks their own self .
Hear! Hear! Thank you, Mr. Presley, for standing as a beacon of hope for the victims abused by those who profess their love; as they beat them bloody! It is imperative that the transition, from victim to survivor, be made as quickly as possible thus empowering the one abused, with positive feelings of self – worth, respect, identity – I am appalled that a utility company would place the monetary value of a cash deposit, over the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of a member of the community! Then again, they aren’t looking at the bigger picture; because, in the long run, they would now have an additional source of revenue, another property from which an additional utility payment is now being made! Instead the utility company, in their quest for their own 30 pieces of silver (or dollars); are unwittingly, unknowingly, and/or subconsciously perpetuating a cycle that needs to end.
After an article in the StarkvilleDailyNews on Monday August 4th, -where the writer insinuated that the rooster had been abandoned and neglected(completely untrue!) and didn’t bother to contact the ACTUAL OWNER of the rooster about this article- the owner of the rooster decided to relocate the rooster to a farm in Pheba for his own protection. The roosters name is Sriracha.
They should throw away key should have to pay all medical bills and time they lost from work
There is no excuse for our state government to make it a requirement to have insurance if you want to drive…..period!!!!! No insurance and you don’t get a tag, drop or cansel your insurance and if you are caught you go to jail for 30 days and a $500 fine for the first offense……why should I have to furnish UN-insured mortist insurance on my auto.
Come on it’s like the voter ID law…….protecting one group of people…..that’s all.
What a shame! He got off too light. Now we, along with Keith’s family, have to feed and support the scum that killed him for the next 40 years. If the law would make an example out of some of these people and not let them off so light, maybe others would think twice about robbing/killing people.
Perhaps they should ask some of the people who live and work behind this building who has been doing work on the OUTSIDE of this building, NOT the inside.
Mike, you speak of Thad Cochran, class, and leadership in the same sentance…..you got to be kidding. He is a big part of the problem in Washington, he’s been there way tooooooo long. The ONLY thing he’s worried about is his own butt and how many handouts he can get, or how many buildings he can get his name on. Tell me 5 things he’s done for Miss. over the past 10 years…….go on….oh well give me 3…..
What a joke…..
Reckon this has anything to do with Artesia Day (weekend) celebration?
Picture of McDaniel demonstration could have been by means of a selfie because it was so small and subdued. There was an overwhelming crowd supporting Senator Cochran.
Thad Cochran is part of the problem that in Washington, I still can’t beleive the people of Miss voted him in again. The only thing, and I do mean the only thing he’s good at is putting his name on another building.
I’ve voted and supported the Republican party for many years, but can’t do this one. It will make me sick but I’ll vote for a Democrat before I’ll vote for the Cock-Roch.
I was there and find it particularly offensive that you chose to ignore the hundreds of Cochran supporters but instead featured the meager handful of McDaniel supporters. The true rally was the Senator and the class and leadership he displayed.
The fact you’re OFFENDED demonstrates the real problem. The arrogance of the GOP Establishment. The fact a sitting senator had to resort to RACE BAITING ads to win is offensive to the MAJORITY of Republicans in this state. There will be NO GROUP HUG to get over this, no matter how much Speaker Gunn and the Cochranites want there to be. Not gonna happen.
You Tea Party folks sure like using the race card a lot. So Thad Cochran got some of the African American. Oh my God, how dare those African Americans vote Republican. How dare they even think of being a Republican. This article obviously was an attempt to beef up the meager support that McDaniel has. That crowd was for Cochran. There may have been a handful of McDaniel plants trying to get news coverage. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was his own staff and family.
and you don’t find it offensive that 40,000 democrats voted for Cochran and he only won by 7,600 votes? If your a conservative which I doubt very seriously, that should tell you Mcdaniel won the republican vote by a land slide.
This is crazy, we have American kids who need help and we are bring in kids from Mexico/South America for us to take care of…..THANKS obama for your stupidity!!!!
What this article and many others fail to report is that only about 20 % of those who are illegally crossing the border are children. No one knows the criminal intent or health status of the other 80%, and our country’s safety is being sacrificed in the process. This article also gave only one reason for the surge – “extreme conditions in Central America.” The conditions there have not drastically changed, only the current President’s lenient policy of allowing them to stay once they arrived. Knowing they can come, not be turned away, and given free health care, education, housing, etc., is why they are coming. While we all have compassion for people who live in countries with many problems, there is a right way, a legal way, to come to America. If we have no laws and no borders, we soon will be no different from the countries from which they came. We need a President and a congress that will abide by our laws, protect us, and will make sure that the process for LEGAL immigration is improved.
Renee condolences go out to you and your family. Dontay Evans was my cousin.God Bless you all.
Thanks WCBI for coverage! We had an awesome time. Thanks to all that came it was a success! All praises!
Eddie lee was my husband we only been married 4 years he had three biological childrenthree step children three grandkids ffrom Tulsa Oklahoma he will be missed.
I knew dontay very well very nice and sweet when he walked in the room he light it up with that smile very good friend dad he will be truly missed love you dontay
Only a democrat could get away with such an outlandish claim.
R.I.P. Sweet baby Nyla!!!! You will be missed!!
My heart hurts for this family. I been crying every since this happened. Lord I pray that you just give them strength to make it. RIP Nyla
Thanks to our elected state officials, Mississippi has become a catch and release criminal justice system. I will not vote for anyone who voted in favor of the new law. The ones who will be getting the blame for rise in crime will be local law enforcement. While all the blame should go to the knuckleheads in Jackson for not locking away the criminals.
I like a dog….I like mine wrapped with thick bacon and deep fried, with mustard and onion. Can eat them until the cows come home!
Randle and Aberdeen Police are a disgrace,Henry is a bully and the police dept. from the ground up needs to be dismantled. Hopefully this case is not whitewashed or payed out . Pray for justice.!!!!!!
Probably Obama’s naysayers wanting to close the Air Base because it is in Mississippi.
hahahaha….are you asking the liberal media to check for the truth before they print or go to the air…..wow you taking all the fun out of it. The way they think is if you don’t know, try and guess what they would say/or what would happen…..then full steam ahead.
And if you make comments they don’t like/agree with they reject them……
Before you take your articles and story to the air or to print, please have the facts correct, fact check your story and do not depend on the re-typing what you have heard and/or read. One case had two jury members arrested for perjury, by the presiding judge. Not a hung Jury.
We couldn’t be more honored to have shared with the world what we, her sisters and brothers, mother and father have always known……beauty on the inside can’t help but spill out one the outside. Jazz is following a legacy of success that has graced her with God given talent, the opportunity to shine at what you do best and the confidence to do it. To God be the glory and to beautiful family be the appreciation…..all the best.
WCBI reported Monday that Natisha Roby received a 3-year prison sentence. This was incorrect, and has since been updated to her actual 20-year sentence.
Dat ur son busy she got three year cause she ain’t do nothin wrong place at da wrong time so u can get on down cause da God we serve are good so good luck…
I will not vote for Cock-Roach if he’s in the general election, hate to vote for a DemocRAT but I will.
i must be missing something on this
she gets 3 years for murder and my son got 6 years for stealing a fishing pole
something is seriously wrong with our justice system
Finally some good news about my hometown! As a society we focus to much on the negative. If we want MS to be successful let’s keep shining the light on the positive and encouraging others!
For those of you paying attention at home, note that team Cochran only lists about 50 of the 82 counties. In particular, team Cochran makes no mention of Rankin, Simpson, Jeff Davis, Leake … and give no numbers for Madison and Hinds. These are the counties surrounding the capitol Jackson, which are specifically being sued in federal court by 22 Mississippi voters and conservative election-integrity-group True The Vote, for refusing to divulge public records (and in at least one instance for alleged destruction of public records).
Also sued were Copiah county, Lauderdale county, and Yazoo county. Google the phrase circuit clerk McDaniel Cochran Lauderdale, to see what kind of stories are coming out about the vote-counting. Also, note that Joe Nosef is now saying that the state repub party has no control over the primary, so MSGOP cannot be sued… and simultaneously, secState Hosemann is also saying that the state of Mississippi has no control over internal party elections, thus they *also* cannot be sued. Sigh. Also, Nosef has vowed to blackball the 22 Mississippi citizens, most of them tea party leadership, that signed onto the so-called “frivolous” lawsuit.
If you want to see the truth, find your local liberty-oriented activists, and volunteer to help with the integrity work. Heck, for that matter, find your local establishment-republican group, or even your local democrat party (if they bother to have one where you live). Fraudulent elections are the death-knell of solving our problems with votes. Please help, if you can.
(McDaniel found over 1000 suspicious votes in Hinds county alone on 6/25, the day after the runoff… since then, Connie Cochran of the Hinds cty election board has been quoted saying that no records were destroyed… and team Cochran above says that “no examination done” is their status for Hinds county votes. Over the last three weeks, the number of irregularities that McDaniel volunteers have discovered has gone from 1000 to 1500 to 3300 to 4900 to 8300, and there are plenty of officials still stonewalling, and allegations that absentee-ballot-related stuff is being destroyed… ripe for fraud since there is no voter-ID for those kind of votes.)
Why aren’t we able to see her mugshot on the news like other criminals’?
May God be with his family. Rest in Paradise Quinton Hill you were one of the best classmate ever..
Thug City is not out of context. Yes I agree Columbus is a corrupt city with crime out of control. When women get raped in the local mall, people get shot in their own homes, car jacked, robberies every day, with no help in sight.
I would stand with anyone trying to clean up this mess, but it ain’t going to happen….only going to get worse. Wish I had followed my son’s advice several years ago and sold out and left the area.
It is what it is…..THUG CITY, a place where you are not safe in your own home!!!!
THUGS don’t have a color, they can be black, white, brown, or red, get off your race horse and see it for what it is.
Columbus is now Thug City….not safe to go anywhere at night, not safe to drive anywhere, and its not going to get any better anytime soon.
Starkville, Tupelo, Tuscaloosa are better places to live.
But if 85% or more of the crime thats taking place is within the African American Community is it safe to say that those “thugs” are who you are referring to? I’m not on a race horse, you see the problem is people don’t know how to have open dialect about race without being defensive. I just thought the term “thug city” is out of context. Columbus is a corrupt city. Corrupted by over paid officials in high positions who cant seem to agree on things that will help the community as a whole.. Yes, I know Columbus is in a horrible position right now, but seems like you never answered the question…
“Do you want to be apart of a solution? or just be apart of the problem by not having voice and just letting it continue down the ill trotted road its heading on…?”
Cause if you aren’t trying to be apart of the solution then commenting on post such as these with negativity and no plans for action is the reason it will not get better anytime soon….
Some real time in a real prison would help this thug. Get him off the streets.
Most likely they will make him promise not to do it again, then he gets $100 and set free, ready to ride and shoot again!
When you research these guys records you wonder what they where doing out of jail again to begin with. They are Homing Pigeons. There are kids in jail for making one mistake, yet these two are running around with repeating offenses. Second chances are one thing but expecting anything different from these two is ridiculous. We wonder why our crime rate is so high?
By “thugs” do we mean the predominantly african american community? Cause never heard of Columbus referred to as “Thug City” Columbus doesn’t have a thug problem it has a city wide community problem where there is no outlets for the youth, no social entertainment for the african american community. A SERIOUS drug epidemic with meth in the caucasian community and a broken justice system thats fueled by high incarceration rates and paid city officials..So if by “Thug City” you are referring to the “whole” city then you’re correct the thugs have taken over. But will moving solve the problem? Do you want to be apart of a solution? or just be apart of the problem by not having voice and just letting it continue down the ill trotted road its heading on…?
Did yall notice the reporter stating ” he walked through the restaurant section without saying anything” What was he suppose to say??? he didn’t have to say anything, but when you read it, it sounds like that was a problem…what ever. The problem was Popeye’s needed to educate the employee’s, the man did nothing wrong, and Popeye’s, and the police owes the man an apology.
Excited to hear your plans and hope insurance works in your favor. i would love to see you build smaller and more specialized. I always loved the old place, just felt more like home and the decor was neat. still the best pizza and Grecian spaghetti in town and beyond. looking forward to whatever you do.
This is so sad, a man should be safe in his own home. May God bring peace to his family and may he RIP.
I hope they catch the thug that done this, and pray they let him ride sparky.
Robert whitehead was my father. He lived for his family, friends, and being a lineman. It was his life. He was a wonderful man.
Dana you don’t know me but we are kin and I’m so sorry for your loss. Your in my prayers and thoughts during this time.
Quinton was one of the best people I’ve ever been blessed to know. This is a tragedy for so many people. I can only hope that his family can obtain some justice. We love you, Q.
Cochran and his campaign are lets say less than creditable people, bad for Mississippi….42 years is enough, you are the problem. We need new blood in Washington…..all the way through, run all of them out…..what a sorry lot, starting with the dirt bag obama himself.
Why do you think they call it “THUG CITY”……the thugs have taken over. If you are a honest, hard working person you don’t stand a chance……move out of town and do your shopping elsewhere……somewhere where you are safe.
This is too much!!! Please City Of Columbus put a “stop” to this mess! Get these folks off our streets quick…
I am truly saddened by the news of the Mill burning. My grandfather Lige Burns was one of the first supervisor of the cotton mill, all my relatives worked there including my mother who passed away last year at the age of 94. It is a shame that the building could not have been a memorial or museum of some kind. There is certainly a lot of history behind it. I hope the people responsible are found and held accountable.
Starkville sent their newest ladder truck, but grenada’s ladder truck was requested but grenada officials refused to send it.
I hope they go with Sea Port Air. A lot of the airports they use don’t require TSA screening. Air Choice one does. I want to be safe but not at the expense of having to let a machine take a picture of my naked body or let a stranger put their hands on me in places they have no business touching.
Air Choice One, if you want to “change the type of service provided…” and “…how procedures are done in flying”, use airports that don’t require your passengers to go through degrading security procedures. No airline will receive a cent of my money unless I know I have complete control of my body.when I use their service.
What a sorry excuse for a man, sure won’t call him a leader or President. This country is in deep trouble because of him and the DemocRAT party…….can’t wait for them to go!!!!!
Larry Swearingen is my dad he is doing better he is returning to work next week, but of course he still is having some pain but he is almost back to the man he was before.
I agree Cochran should retire. However I will not vote for a true Democrat either. I believe Cochran will retire shortly after the new Congress convenes. But the MS GOP will just influence the Governor to appoint another RINO!
John McCain can go back where he came from, he has no place in this state. For him and Thad to play the Veteran vote, well I am veteran and dislike both these men. They do nothing for the Vets. All McCain likes is to hear himself talk. They both need to just retire and give us all a fresh start. And use I am a republican.
Look for nothing to change if Thad gets reelected. He needs to just retire and let some one with new ideas serve us. I am sorry if you may not agree, but look at the mess we have in DC. Thad is no help what so ever. I am disappointed and will not vote for him and yes I am a Republican.
I totally agree with you, sorry that he was re-elected. You can expect the same ole same ole…..maybe get a new building with his name on it.
I don’t have any respect for McCain and not that much for Bad Thad, been there too long and only taking care of himself.
Yep, I’m a Republican…..but will vote for Childers in November.
All I have to say is we all know the law when it comes to driving under the influnce, DUI. You get caught you go to jail simple as that. I am willing to bet it’s not the fist time the Alderman has done it I too have been arrested for the same thing. It’s a wake up call. Be thankful he didn’t injure someone. If you don’t agree with the laws then get them changed.
What about the people that can’t afford to pay back a loan? I am 65, disabled, and live on a social security check. My insurance agent handled the removal of the large trees and debris, from my back yard to the front. This was done at a cost of $3500.00, and now I was told this morning that I would have to move this closer to the street. My insurance company has also cancelled my coverage. I am now looking at having to go through the state to have my home insured.
Please advise where I can get help, if possible, for this.
“Last year Columbus Middle School opened in a new facility”? Huh? Columbus Middle School opened in Jan. 2011. That’s hardly “last year.”
If the son is dead and the father is the suspected shooter, why is the father not in jail pending further information?
Miss Carole found some hats I made at one of the arts/crafts shows…but they were much too bland for. She said “oh, I just love these but don’t you have something u could put on here to make it look just a bit more pretty. I’ll pay extra for your trouble”. So the next morning I brought in a bag full of left over silk/plastic flowers, scraps of ribbon, etc & was about to get started before time for the show to get underway….up she walked, and excitedly started pulling stuff out of the bag saying, “can u put this on here & a piece of this here,and…” Well, when it was all done we had made the craziest hat I’ve ever seen with different colored ribbon hanging everywhere & flowers stuck in wildly. But SHE LOVED IT!!! Put it on & wore it all day around the sale telling ppl where she got it.
I never was quite sure if it was good advertising or not
Questioner he was less than 50 feet away from his home when she stopped him on the corner of 182 and Reed Road. This deputy had been sitting and watching all of the family and friends that was stopping by to show their condolences and he left to go get some more sodas from the store and was stopped on the way back that’s ridiculous. Especially coming from a deputy whose daughter is a drug addict and they have been covering up all type of things she has done well that is about to end now if she Jay walks she is going into the system. Like I stated previous this is just retaliation from the removal of some city officials who were corrupt and a former Police Chief who dressed up as a Ku Klux Klansman for a joke really????? Well now since the majority of the alderman and the county board has changed this town is fixing to change for the better of EVERYBODY not a select few.
I was there and one of the few kids the interveiwed but they didnt show it on the video. Kinda stinks they didnt show me at all
The death of his son is truly sad, but what’s worse is that “concerned citizen” is using it as a crutch and an excuse for the sheriffs department not to stop him. What if he had hit someone else and possibly killed a son or daughter while driving drunk? Would you still be concerned? Seems to me if he was driving drunk he needed to be stopped no matter where he was aka city/county. As far as getting rid of the “good ole boys” kuddos to the Oktibbeha county sherrifs department for stopping a city official and still following through with what’s right.
This is some b.s. his son has just died a Starkville High stand out athlete in football. And why is the Oktibbeha County Sheriff department stopping in the city limits anyways??? This is just good ole boy payback from the firing of Lynn Spruill and David Lindley but now we definitely going to get rid of the rest of the last good ole boys. You cant stop change just get on board with it.
I was just in Starkville Tuesday and thought about all the good memories of Carole as I drove past her house and admired all the red bottles she’s put out in recent years. She used to come visit me regularly when I worked at Chi Chi’s on Jackson Street. What a bright soul. She used to come in the store all decked out for whatever it was she was about to head out to and ask me if she looked alright. Always gorgeous inside and out! She made my day every time she came to visit.
I met Ms. Davis at a MSU football game. We sat beside each other one night in the Bulldog Club. She was an instant favorite and so full of life! It was a pleasure to meet her and hear of her world travels and love of painting. And more importantly – her love for Starkville! What a treasure to have met her. My prayers are with the family.
This is such sad news! I used to work at the Starkville Daily News, and Carole would come to visit the news room all the time. I’m so lucky to have known her. She was such a kind and generous and lively person. My thoughts are with Frank and her children and the entire Starkville community.
I had only met Carole a couple of times, but I like from the time I met her, I guess because we had had the same name. My daughter and I were in Stsrkville Tuesday and just talked about her, so sorry to to hear that she had passed away, she was a truly a uniqinue lady. Carole Davis Eubanks, Columbus Mississippi
You’ll be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers will be with Mr. Davis, fsmily, and friends. She was such a joy to be around. Fly, fly high!!!!!!!
Carol had a heart of gold and never met a stranger. We became friend about 15 years ago when she walked into my salon and said she was ready for a change. She’s had short hair ever since which fit her personality perfectly. She was a faithful client / friend ever since. Friday mornings at 8:00 will not be the same. She never left me without a hug and an “I love you”. She will be missed my so many. Praying for peace and comfort for Mr. Frank and her children and grand-babies.
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Leave the METH along PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
I AM SO GLAD THIS AIRED THESE KIDS WORK REALLY HARD AND DESERVE SOME ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FOR THEIR HARD WORK AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS OUR DAUGHTER SAMANTHA PICKERING IS AMONG ONE OF THE 2014 GOVERNORS SCHOOL SCHOLARS AND WE ARE VERY PROUD OF HER DEDICATION AND HARD WORK
I am very proud to see this article air these students work very hard and are very dedicated to their education. My daughter Samantha Pickering is one of the 2014 Governor School Scholars and this has been an amazing experience for her. We couldn’t be prouder of her hard work and determination.
Tippah Co. has had charges filed on a Jason Smith from Union Co.for 6 or 7 yrs for stealing 2 pitbulls and killing 2 other pitbulls. He can’t get arrested in Tippah Co.,Smith has been in jail in Lee and Union Co’s for mutiple drug charges, but Sheriff Galliard did not want to pick Smith up.
I agree. She has a great family. Hannah has always been nice to me and I pray she gets the help she needs. Negative comments hurt the family and they dont deserve it. #prayingforhannahblair
RIP Prin Prin you were a sweet person as a childhood friend my short stay in Tennesse we spent alot of time together at your home those hot summer days. I heard of your sudden death and I’m so sorry to hear that you had to pass away in such a manner as this, to see picture of you with the same smile you had when we were young lady’s it’s special to know that you carried that same smile to the end may you rest in peace love Holly from Atlanta GA
Great show Michelle. Love the way you connected the two. Thanks
Hannah is a lovely sweet girl. Some people just go thru a rough patch in life and just needs someone there for her to get her back on the right track. She has a wonderful family that loves her but sometimes that’s just not enough. She doesn’t need the negativity she needs encouragement and support. Don’t turn your back on the weak let then know that you have a strong back that they can lean on in their time of need.
Sad, is there anything for these kids to do beside shooting and killing each other. How does this constantly happen?
This was a sad case I hope the shooter gets exactly what he deserves an his bond is set at 500.000 bond which is sad he needs no bond for what he had done in broad day light in front of kids an family was out there watching it’s ridiculous!!!!
This is just so sad…..#concerned
This has got to stop!!! People are afraid to take a good but kicking therefore they resort to killing. What is this world coming to??? #concerned
Wow I went to school with her she had always been a bully but wow
This happened to me when I was falsely accused of trespassing on an estate property which I inherited from my mother. The person accusing me of trespassing was waiting outside City Hall in Amory waiting in the bushes to assault me as she had done in 2006 in Nashville, TN, while we were moving our mother back to Amory from Tennessee. The two sisters who assaulted me with our mother’s walking cane were allowed to get away with it, along with raiding three Estates, two of which they were not going to probate in the State of Mississippi, even though the law states that if the deceased’s estate is over $10k, a probate must be filed. They are lying in wait for a 2nd brother to die so they can raid his estate. You know how I escaped being beaten the night Judge Malski dismissed the fraudulent claim of trespass against me? By having two policemen escort me out of the Amory City Hall building, along with the woman’s daughter, who asked me if I wanted her to walk me to my car. I think the City of Amory needs to crack down on their criminals.
I was blown away by Ben when I first met him in Memphis 2013, not only has he got an incredible voice, but he has nailed the moves and all the facial expressions, not only this but Ben is the nicest sweetest guy you will ever meet. I have been watching his career closely this past year and am literally over the moon that he won the Tupelo title. Tupelo is magical in every way just like Ben! Can’t wait for EW!
GET WELL SOON! We know you are in good hands. We are thinking of you as you recover! YOU’RE THE BEST FOR MISSISSIPPI!!
Yes they’re was a home that was damaged. From what I’ve been told this is what caused my Mom’s house to flood today on Old Walthall Rd.
The Pharmacy was Winton’s Pharmacy. Owned by Mr. Steward Winton.
I saw Ben performe in April this year , here in Holland. He is wunderfull and one of the few who brings Elvis music from the early years, i really like it.
Ben is an amazing singer, allt he right moves, his voice is beautiful. and also verry nice …Looking forward to meet him again next year.
Ben keep on doing the good work and see ya soon xxxxx
I worked with Cantrell years ago and he was very sweet and easy to get along with. It warmed my heart that so many others felt the same way. I pray that God adds comfort to the family and that justice prevails. May you rest peacefully Clay!!!
I know some people will look at this post and think, “big deal, a bunch of 12 year olds played soccer and won a tournament!” Please don’t take lightly what these girls have accomplished. As the mother of one of these girls I have watched them put their all into a sport they love with all thier heart. They practice hard, play hard, have a lot of fun, learn new skills daily, develop as good, solid palyers, and win game after game, and tournament after tournament. Some of these girls have played soccer since they were 7 years old and even younger. I have watched my daughter develop as an awesome player and even a better friend while learning some of the most important life lessons. My daughter is part of something extremly special by being a part of this team. This particular team has a special connection. It’s as if they anticipate each other’s moves and know EXACTLY what to do to assist the other. They are encouraging to each other and build each other up. They fill gaps left by other players and have an unspoken communication on the field; that only comes from working hard together. We, as parents, see our kids and know that they are all either 11 or 12 years old but they play with the experience of much older players. This team has gone up against some of the biggest and toughest teams the state of Mississippi has to offer only to come out on top time after time. Other teams are intimidated by this team even though they are not known as the fastest, tallest, or most aggresive team around. They just play solid honest soccer and rely upon the skills they have learned and the talents they have been given. This team has even been told by other team’s coaches and players that they are one of the cleanest playing teams they have ever played. They rely upon their skills and talent to win games only – no playing dirty for this team because it cheapens what they do when they win a game.
This team really has a lot of talent and it doesn’t go unnoticed. Out of the 10 players who play on this team, 6 of them are elegible to play at the next level of high school and all 6 of them made their respective high school teams. (New Hope, Caledonia, and Columbus High). It will be hard for these girls to go up against some of their former teammates once they meet on the high school field because they have formed such a very tight bond. They will take this, and previous year’s experience and be better player because of it. Don’t be surprised if you see some, or even all of them, play at the next and subsequent levels of college, professional, or even Olympic. They are just that good. My daughter, from the time she stepped out on a soccer field as a 7 year old has said her dream is to play soccer in the Olympics one day. Soccer is as natural to her as breathing is.
To you it may be just another little article on the news about some small town girl’s soccer league winning a tournament, but to those of us who have seen the sparkle in their eyes as they take the field and have watched them leave it all on the field, it is so much more than that to both them and to us parents. This is a time they will never forget and may even be the turning point in their soccer careers. The memories they ahve made and experiences they have had this year will not be easily replaced. You just never know what impression this year of soccer has had on so many.
I know this may not sound like a huge deal to some people but as the mother of one of these girls playing for this team, I know how much heart and soul they all put into the games. They practice hard, play hard, have a lot of fun, love the sport, and give it all on the field. I have watched my daughter develop as a player and learned some valuable life lessons. She has also made some life long friends along the way. Some of the best times in her life have been spent on the soccer field playing a sport she absolutely loves with some of the best friends a girl could ever have. She, along with a lot of these girls, have played since they have been 7 or even younger and I see the sparkle in their eyes as they hit the field. These particular girls have a connection like no other. They anticipate each others moves and fill the gaps when one has to leave a position. The sport is second nature to them. Playing soccer for them is as natural as breathing is to others. I think if soccer were taken away from my daughter she would lose the ability to breath; that’s just how much she loves it. The caliber of the talent on this team is phenomenal. We may know they are only 10 to 12 years old but they play with the experience of much older players and that experience shows. Out of the 10 players on this team, 6 are now able to play at the high school level and all 6 of them made their respective high school teams for the upcoming year, my daughter being one of them. The schools see their talent and WANT them on their teams. It will be hard for some of them to play for their new high school teams when they go up against their former teammates. I don’t think the memories they made or the experiences that they had this year will easily be replaced. In conclusion, don’t take lightly what these girls have done and think little of what they have accomplished. They worked hard and won against some of the biggest and toughest soccer teams the state of Mississippi had to offer and come out on top tournament after tournament. To some this is their whole life and they will be better people due to the diligence and hard work they put on the field. Don’t be surprised if you see a couple of these girls compete on the collegiate or even national level at a later point. You just never know what imprint this year has left on each of them.
Cantrell was a very dear friend of mine and he will be missed. I live in Atlanta so if anyone reading could post the funeral arrangements I would be very appreciative. I’ve known Cantrell many years and for life to be snatched from him is simply heart breaking. I pray they find the cuase of his so untimely death and if or whom ever may be responsible is sevely punished! To the family I pray his memory comforts you and that our Heavenly Father consoles you!
So many unanswered questions. I’m sure his family is hurting from the loss and the fact that they waited 12 hours to get him to the hospital. Regrets hang heavy and I’m sure they are hurting terribly.
Why is there a mug shot for his picture yall look on facebook for everything else u could have gotten a pic….i feel if it was a little white girl not racist found in the projects behind a building it would be all kind of media and police riding investigating and why is that the CPD can’t solve all these murders but can find drug dealers that been selling for years…i know why maybe they wanna build a new park or fix the rodes off dope dealers money or maybe they wanna ride nice button it alot of families out here grieving and wonder what happened to there child or relatives get it together I feel like of they don’t look into it then its a policeman or some one who has alot of money child whatever the matter it need to be investigated cause Mrs Barbra been through enough and she deserves answers be bless WCBI I know yall will be on ur job but will GTA be on there’s
Praying that someone knows something… He was a very sweet person…
I worked with, and served under Vance Rice as a patrolman at the University of Arkansas from 2000 to 2007. He is an exceptional man and has always listened to the public and the officers under him to provide the best protection and service as a police department can. He has fully embodied the “To Serve and Protect” slogan to its very core.
I am proud to say I served under him and to see him take on this new endeavor. God bless him and his family. He will consider the MSU Police Department as his family as well. He truly cares about his officers.

Why is there no justice for thisyoung man. He was my classmate and I worked with him almost 9 years ago! If this was your son then you would want closure as well as justice served.He was a bright, friendly, outgoing individual. I pray God be with his family..
Your denomination is not worth joining if you will not tell your people the truth. If you don’t tell them the truth, when they find out you are lying, they will just go elsewhere anyway. Romans 1 is a good scripture for the truth. Try finding out some truth, Rev Dave.
I am praying for all that is involved in this incident. We never know what is going on in people heads. We do not wrestle against flesh and blood. It is the enemy who comes to still, kill, and destroy. We are praying and know God hears our prayers. In Jesus name Amen!
Thanks for publishing this video and running this story .
That’s my momma!!
And The Lord said…..”Everything you put your hand to shall prosper!!”
” You shall be blessed in the city ans blessed in the field !!”
Mr Derrick was a good friend of mine for many years. He was a good constable and would help anyone he could. I remember the last time I talked with him at the court house. He was running for office one more time and I was going overseas so I was voting and absentee ballot. He ask me to vote for him and I told him he didn’t have to ask. I handed him my ballot and showed him I checked his name. I will always remember him.
This is very sad but I really believe she tryed to kill her self because i was in a relationship with whitney and that baby she trying to say its the other guy that she was cheating on me with baby lol but the baby boy look just like me and she will not let me see him.Thank you jesus that i dont talk to her anymore..
If we do not change our position on supporting our gay sisters and brothers on issues like gay marriage, what young person in ten years is going to want to join our denomination.
How can you as a Rev support any gay issue, that’s what I don’t understand. The Bible clearly makes it’s stand…..
The only way I will support a gay is if he comes to church to denounce and change his/her ways…..I sure won’t sit on the pew and support a practicing gay, neither will God, and I think you will answer for your direction also.
That river is very dangerous. I see people swimming at the buttahatchie river in bartahatchie and the one in Caledonia. That river has a very strong current and could take you under at anytime and no matter how strong of a swimmer you are, it still wouldn’t save you. People please stop swimming at either locations before someone else drowns. I have lived in this area a very long time and have seen people drown and get hurt on this river.
Sorry to hear
My husband jumped in to save the kids that was geting swift away by the curent they have jesse ponds in icu pulling throw paryers are need.they got all the small kids put but couldnt get thrte selfs i got my husband to the side an another man did cpr on him thank you u saved my husband!

So sorry Melissa! Mark called me this morning and told me. Praying for Jesse and you guys!!
Iam so thankful to God Above for letting these two wildlife men be in the right pace and at the right time.Thank the Lord He Spared this little boy.
After moving away from Columbus, you really realize how bad the town has gotten in the last few years. Both families are in my prayers. I know the family of Kale Scott and they are an upstanding family. They are also in my thoughts for this has to be difficult for them as well.
That is so sad. Those kids worked so hard to achieve something that so few so which is graduating high school and receiving their diplomas to turn around and get seriously injured, almost die, or completely lose their life at the celebrations party. Over what? Something obviously not as important as moving on to the next chapter of your life. Sending prayers to all victims involved.
My heart goes out to both families for their losses. I knew both of the young men.
I hate to see so much senseless violence from our young men who are meant to be our future. Two families are suffering today, because of one senseless night of violence. I knew both of the young men, and my heart goes out to both of their families.
The folks in Tupelo call us “Little Memphis”………
Yes, by law. Mr.Knight is not guilty of the stated crime . If these were your child or children he was looking at there would not be a choice of guilty or not. As for me I don’t want anyone convicted or facing charges of this kind of crime anywhere around my children family or not.@ Arron you not have stated anything about his preference unless you personally know him, cause if may as well been girls He was looking at.
Well if the gun hadn’t been invited to the party everyone would be fine. With all the federal government has warned us about guns we should know by now not to invite them places because they CAN’T CONTROL THEMSELVES..
This comment is ridiculous…. It’s the person’s fault for Bringing the gun. Guns dont grow hands themselves and just shoot… ashley
Beautiful story about little Hailee! I will make my donation today!
I really hate to c how these kids r messing up their life and taking other’s lives.
raciest? News sight? Maybe it’s time to put the guns down and learn to spell. Only thing I saw was a bunch of overweight slobs with little or no education holding onto their guns as that’s the only thing that makes them feel empowered. But yeah, y’all showed the world what it means to be free lol
There was a General Country Store with Post Office at Sessums, Mississippi, in rural Oktibbeha County. It closed many years ago, but was open and run by Woodrow Cox and then Odie McHann when I visited it.
This is not really the 1st, unless I am wrong. At Ruleville, Mississippi, therewas a post office in a store and t Rome, Mississippi, too
How absurd to associate “preference” (which is orientation and begins from birth! Not a damn choice or lifestyle.) with child pornography or even molestation! Stats show underage molestion, abuse…is perpetrated by heterosexual males. And Mr. Knight is currently innocent. Keep that in mind, Anon.
I may have some things to help this family… Email me at email@example.com
I may have some things to help out this family… Please have them to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org..
May God Richly Bless You….

I suggest Condi Rice be invited to give the commencement address at Columbus High and tell us all about the missing weapons of mass combustion. Remember last year she stated that KIOR replacing imported oil was a reality
This is just to distract from people finding out about Thad Cochran’s affair he’s been having for many years while his wife is in a nursing home. This just goes to show the desperation mode his campaign is in.
It was wonderful to see ALL Americans who understand the meaning of freedom come together to show their support for the second amendment. Especially when the event was deemed to be a raciest gathering by Yall Politics. It’s sad that a so called “news” sight would be so bias and label their fellow Mississippians as raciest only because their candidate they have put their support behind wouldn’t come. This was not only a win for Guntown and the Second Amendment but it shows that Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, here in Mississippi are not just colors we are people that respect one another and only seen each other as Americans.
Good morning. I believe take you took a video of me playing my flute. I was wondering if I could get a clip of that for my future website. Thanks
I would not hesitate to say that this may be a “plant” by Cochran’s office to get some bad publicity going for Chris McDaniel. It sounds like something one of the Watergate people would have done, and then blamed it on the other side. I would like the media to stay on top of this story to see if that is not just what happened in this case. Washington D.C. is not to be trusted these days, especially someone who has been in office as long as Thad Cochran.
Wow. Guessing it was a little boy considering his preference. God what has this world come to!
To Anon, are you basing your comment on any Facts or just assuming that He is guilty because the Attorney General of MS. decided to make this case public? How will the Court find an impartal jury in Clay County now? As for His “preference:” what Facts do you have about His personal life? And what does it have to do with the charges against Him? What If it was you being charged with this crime? Would you be glad that the Criminal Justice system in MS provided the Media with information about YOU?
This accident was my parents in the Chrysler. They are well – sore and need prayers but they are alive and for that I give glory to GOD!!!!
Sonny was an amazing, fun, free spirited young kid and we will miss him very much. He was like a brother to me.
I wish him all the best. He deserves better than what Mississippi State gave him. He will succeed and we know what’s happened to State.
Worse than losers…..what do they bring to the table…..nothing. Be willing to bet you they don’t have/want a job, live off the government in some manner, and vote democrat……yeah buddy, worse than losers…..sad thing is we have to support them.
state needs to cut them so they don’t breed anymore like themselves.
$10,000.00 is a high bail? People who stoop so low as to take property that belongs to those who lost homes and lives in the tornados don’t deserve bail. Fact is they should be put under a jail. Maybe, the law enforcement officers should shoot first and ask questions later. This makes me so angry. How can people be so low bred?
This is my daughter me and her mother are so very proud of her. She has accomplished so much. The teacher and the school at EMCC have seen something special in her and have done everything they could to help her move forward.
Thanks To All At EMCC
Wow what a SORRY person this man is to STEAL durning a time like this.! Glad they caught this BUM.
as a retired little rock police officer;there is pride that we never forget those who paid the ultimate price no matter their color or race.they are/were our brother or sister in our family.r.i.p. brother;your job is done.
A good friend found a picture in his yard in Caledonia and located the woman in Louisville.
Ever since the bad weather & the sation went off the air, there has been no closed caption on WCBI. I don’t know if anyone has made the powers that be aware of this situation. All other networks & shows have managed to keep their closed caption, but WCBI hasn’t.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
I think that it should be mandatory for trailer parks to have community storm shelter or shelters depending on the size of the park…. i live in a nice unnamed park and have no where to go in case of an emergency tornado or other bad weather. It would save a lot of lives .TM by Jamie Burrus
Thank you so much for getting the news out for all the victims and families affected by the tornadoes. You do not know how much that means for those individuals and for loved ones abroad. I was born in Mississippi, in Starkville, MS, and I grew up in Winston County in Louisville, MS. I still have family, neighbors, and friends there.
What is ironic for me hearing about the tornado In Winston County is that I still will never forget the horrible tornado that touched down in my childhood there and the lives that were lost in that terrifying storm. You can never forget something that was so horrible, but you can get through it with help. As we escaped our apartment home, all that we could see was complete darkness because the lights and power were all knocked out by the storm. We could hear this most horrible sound. I remember how the wind picked up speed very quickly. I remember the wind, and the pressure sucking down on us making it seem almost impossible to escape because when you are not being blown about, the wind is baring down on you with all its strength making it hard to move, walk, or to run. We would have been blown away had it not been for a small miracle from God that saved our lives. We could not make it each alone, so we all grabbed tightly onto each other forming a chain. Before the wind lifted us all off the ground, I remembered how I did not let being a small child keep me from fighting to help save my family’s lives. I grabbed tightly onto the outside door knob of our apartment home, and prayed that God would help us to all hold on, and not let us die.
We were all pulled upward off the ground and felt a sucking pressure pulling on us, but we never let go amidst our screams, cries, and in what seemed like forever in that darkness. By the grace of God, we made it to safety below downstairs to our neighbors.
Today, I find it surreal that the very same place, Eiland Plaza Apartments were struck again by an F4 tornado.
This is the most awesome story! Thank you WCBI for reporting it. God is good!
I am not surprised,, Chris who has been making more public open meeting each day than Thad will make all year is overscheduled and using his bus. He had great people represent t him,,, Chris is real I count him as a work friend, I served in the Legislature with him, and he will make Mississippi an outstanding leader in DC. that will turn our decline into real prosperity by (empowering each one of US to seek our purpose in life,, not have to live by the purpose of the Government (which is not for us today) You know something is wrong and our prosperity is fleeting away. Check out his website or just make a change to someone who I guarantee you will fight government takeover of your health, your food, your education, your recreation and your life,,, and help you become the government again.
Grew up remembering this man as my father, but cant recall meeting any of his family in Va.
Tried many times to connect with them to no avail. Gave up hope til I recently saw the memorial service online.
It’s about time they got tony Williams. He owes so much back child support maybe they will put him under the jail.
That news wcbi tv is very good
What about the shows that we’re missed. Will they be played at a later time?
My God woman, get a life !
I would assume it’s safe to say that children will also need school supplies just to finish the remainder of the year?
So sad for this child and hope he is found soon. Would it not be a more helpful story if it included his name and a photo? Thanks!
Thank you for making the effort and letting us know what is wrong. Also can’t find wcbi.
This is the only way get the local weather and still storms out there. I understand this isn’t the companies fault but I do think we should get a reduce in this month statement not getting full services! The cable works great at the neighbors and direct is out!
That’s what you get with Dish or Directv……no reduced bill, enjoy!
I am the Girl Scout leader of Webster County and some of my girls and their parents would like to volunteer this Saturday wherever needed. We will also be donating some bottled water. Please let me know who I need to contact for volunteering.
Thank you, Rebecca Vaughan
Thank you UMMC for helping. Prayers for these families
Southwire has a semi-truck arriving in Starkville this Thursday to collect supplies for those affected by the tornadoes in Louisville. The Project Gift truck will be located at Wal-Mart Thursday – Saturday. We will deliver supplies to Louisville on Sunday. Thank you very much!
I live in Caledonia and was out picking up debris and came across a deposit slip for a gentleman whose address is Louisville, Ms. Just thought you may want to know that definitive proof of how far some of the debris traveled.
Please pray for this town and it’s people!
Thank you UMMC and other area hospital!!!
To my family and friends from Louisville, MS my sincere thoughts and prayers are with you. Also, will someone please post details on how donations can be made electronically. Thanks!
My family lives in Louisville Ms. I have a beautiful sis and my 2 nieces who was at home at the time when the Tornado hit . Her has is completely gone and my family thank God are fine. My other family members lived on the other side of the town were no damage was done. I live in Colorado and visit that great little town back in 1996. My prayers go out to all the families and those who lost loved ones. God had his arms wrapped around my family.

Thank you for promoting this on the news, Thank you Shelly Clanton for bring awareness to such a devastating disease.
No one wants to force their views or lifestyle on you. All these people want are the basic human rights which you take for granted. You get over it.
French Camp Elementary School has early dismissal at 12:15 pm today. FCA will be dismissed at 2:24 pm.
When will people learn. You can’t force your views or lifestyle on others. No more than others can force theirs on you. Get over it already.
Sarcoidosis is a an inflammatory disease that affects any organ in the body but mainly your lung.Right now the doctors has no clue where Sarcoidosis orginate from and there is no cure. Bringing awarenss to this disease I hope will save a life.
I have a grandson in this class and the entire family shares the same excitement and passion as Ryan. Ryan’s dad is a retired ops weapons officer and has been the best example and influence a young officer can have. Thank you for beginning this series.
I drove through Hackleburg a few weeks ago. So much of the countryside there is still bare when it used to have trees and kudzu. Wrangler is to be admired for rebuilding their distribution center there. Homes and businesses have rebuilt. I made a point of stopping at a store there to buy snacks and spend a little money. It wasn’t much, but I hope it will help a little town still very much recovering from the tornado.
Yes they are a lot of success story’s of meth. My cousin is one of them . God has turned her life around and it is so amazing and I am so proud of her anything thing is possible just out it in gods hands and he will take care of you
Pure parasite of society. I hope they get life in prison.
Mike, I hope you never have any trouble in your family because society is so quick to judge. I will make sure to pray for you and your family because you need it. I hope you get a life filled with nothing but joy! People like you are pure parasites of society because you know nothing and want to run your mouth. Good luck!!!
This is just typical Lamar County justice. Lamar county is known as one of the most crooked in the state. Law enforcement is a joke……most all have past infractions, certianly not the cream of the crop. All have “PROVEN EXPERIENCE” !!!!!
HOW??? do u drive off and leave your baby laying dead in a crib? Stand up for your actions and take care of your business. You shouldn’t be a coward now, you weren’t when it came to doing drugs. That precious baby did not deserve that for any reason.
I love how everyone wants to put their opinion in on this case. I love the people who have no idea what is going on want to point fingers. I hope there are no skeletons in you or your family’s closet and if there is maybe people we be as ugly to you as you are to this family. Of course you aren’t a coward hiding behind a computer screen but that is how bullies operate. That baby, which by the way has a name ALYSSA was not killed by her parents and Melea Marie was not harmed either. I wish people would think about how their know nothing opinions will affect the family of the accused. But that thought never crosses nosy, opinionated peoples mind or else they are not smart enough to think that far ahead! God bless.
Mommy of 3 you need to get your facts straight. There was no 911 call made till the day after the murder and it was made by the family member that actually found Henry’s body. As a matter of fact the boy even posted a picture on his facebook page that stated we do not call 911. As for drugs being found in his system that is a laugh too. Anyone that thinks this was just a simple murder should of seen his the trailer that it happened at. I can tell you that it is a sight I will never forget and just from being in there and seeing the things I did it was brutal. As for the DA of Lamar County he did a fine job of laying down on the job and letting 2 murderers walk. No one knows the pain and suffering the family has had to endure because of Henry’s death or the fact that they are still having to deal with it because of the sorry legal system that is to scared/lazy to fight for justice.
And just where can we look these facts up? Mommy of3 please let us know? I may not have known Henery long but I did know him long enough to know he by no means deserved what they did to him! I know how it feels to have your father taken from you by another mans hand! Those three set in county jail no where near long enough! Henery kids, grand baby and sisters and family have To suffer the rest of their life’s without a daddy, pawpaw, or brother because three people thought it was ok to just kill him and by the looks of it Lamar county thought it was ok also! The scary thing is this occurred right down the road from my Nannys house!! It horrible you can’t feel save in your own home because Lamar county just allows cold blooded murders walk the streets, but some one that gets caught with drugs and only harming themselves has to set in county until grand jury or sometimes even in a state pin!!
The FACT is that they all 3 murdered a great man. If it was your family or friend I’m sure you would feel very different about the situation.
The only 911 call that was made was the day after they killed him. Maybe u need to get ur facts straight mommy of 3. Kind of sounds like u might have been there with them since u think u know so much about it.
THERE WAS NO 911 CALL MADE UNTIL THE DAY AFTER HE WAS KILLED AND THAT WHEN HIS FAMILY CALLED THE LAW!! WE HAVE OUR FAX TOGETHER!! AFTER THEY MURDER HIM THEY WENT STRAIGHT TO ANGEL OMARY MOMS AND FUSSING ABOUT WHAT WAS DONE SO NOBODY CALLED 911 NOT EVEN ANGEL MOM SO YOU NEED YOUR FAX STRAIGHT BEFORE TALKING ABOUT IT!!
There was NOT a 911 call so somebody needs to get their facts straight!!! If there was a call he might could’ve been saved or somebody that was there could’ve helped him instead of beating him with a bat after him being stabbed. It was all 3 of their faults. There is blood stains on everyone of their sorry hands. I pray every night every time they close their eyes they see my brother laying their where they stabbed him and beat him and hid his cell phone so help couldn’t be called. I hope he haunts them every day.
It is about time for this
Providing a landlord list may divulge Privacy Act issues. I want to request a FOIA request to the City for providing a letter from the Chief of Police to a Justice Court Judge for a free pass for someone to steal a shed from an estate property in the City of Amory.
There was a 911 called made, if u want fax look them all up. If u want answers maybe u should ask..
I have tried and tried with Jerry. He just refuses to listen!!! In fact all of his family has tried. He seems to have to learn the wharf way. We all keep him in prayer all the time. I just pray this will wake him up!!!
I don’t think justice was severed all 3 of them should have got life with out prole no deals should have even been in play they murdered a good man that never hurt anyone. My prayer go out to his family .
Im Henry oldest sister. We was not giving any choices in any decisions. The family wanted to take all three parties to trail. The DA and his staff has assured us he had all the evidence he needed to convict all three. Sandra had already admitted to stabbing so Ellis and Angel testimony against her wasnt needed what was needed was for those two to to be charged with their part in the murder also. Angel has not served any jail time in the murder connection. We were told the time she served was her probation violation. The DA only ask the family about making a deal with Ellis to testify against Angel O’mary in her part of the murder. The FAMILY made NO DEALS!!!!
im sure it is a slap in the face knowing the ring leader Angel Omary is out walking the streets and the boy who beat him with the bat is also!! they were and are all guilty and the other two will have to look at Jesus in the face and that wont be a good day! if i were those 2 i would leave Alabama but im sure they are cocky enuff to run the streets!!! if i were to live there i would think about leaving!! Angel and Manuel will have to deal with karma! im sure karma happens in Alabama!!
Justice was not served!!! All three of these people should have got the same sentence.Its not over,we will continue to fight to see that justice is served!
Our cousin was murdered by his so called girlfriend her new boyfriend and her friend. They took away a father, grandfather, brother, uncle and dear cousin. The courts of Lamar make it look as though Henrys life was not important to us. The heinous crime was bad enough but to have angel walking the streets months ago was a slap in the face. Now Manuel gets to be free. The only one that showed a little remorse is taking the heat for it all. Justice had NOT been served. ALL 3 deserve the death sentence in the sane manner they gave Henry. If it was the courts family, they would make sure that the appropriate judgement was handed down. The DA Lief the family the whole time giving false promises of evidence to give murder 1. Lamar county judicial system is a joke.
In Lamar County, a 20 year sentence for murder is the equivalent of about 7 years. Trust me, I know from personal experience. I had a relative murdered in Lamar County and his murderer is now a free man after only serving about 4 years total for murder and check fraud. People of Lamar County need to look at their “officials” and see about appointing new ones. I really do not believe that the investigators and district attorney have the victim’s best interest when going to trial.
I kakela mccleod james mccleod neice is very upset about the situation it’s been almost a week and theres trace of my uncle I know that he didn’t wonder off by himself it was a person or peoples that he knew that he probly left with he wouldn’t have gotten into a car with strangers on tuesday morning the wife said he wasn’t at home in the bed when she went over there that morning but now she saying he was at home that morning but she call the police later that night and said he wasn’t home the morning she went over to his house it sound like she knows what went on that morning
Martha, so glad you are interested in the Barn Quilt Project! These barn quilts are already spoken for. You can contact me via the MS State Art Department website to discuss how to put a barn quilt on your property.
How can someone sit there and say the best sentence was hand with all the evidence provide when all 3 of them was involved but two turn agaist the other just to get less time they went to the home of an man whom never done anything to hurt anyone and took his life an run from the sence of the crim they left henry tto die without even trying to help him or call for help for him! I do believe Justice was. Not severed in anyway what so ever i think they all 3 need to be put behind bars because now they are are gonna just do an few years they probably think they could do it again and get nothing! I do believe there more that could have been done with henry case under the cicrlestands they team up 3 agaist one in his own home! Just saying!
Dr. Powe is my father. He is actually a Tylertown, MS native not McComb. He was also Vice President through 1996 until his untimely death. Just wanted to let you know your facts are a little off.
What a great way to serve others!
Would any of these projects be for sale? Or could a student paint a quilt design on my barn?
EMCC’s theater program did a preference not the choir, the choirs is in scooba not GT.
This really doesn’t shock me. I’m not familiar with him, but this young lady has been in trouble for several years. I feel for her parents!
Well, I hope they don’t go back and pick up the texts that my relative was threatening me with when I was working on the Air Base. I hope they have all but forgotten them, because if they arrest her for texting and threatening that will likely kill the civil lawsuit for getting to the bottom of the embezzlement of over $200k from an account listed as a conservatorship by Judge Mask, and depleted as an ownership account by the embezzling parties. I wonder what kind of excuse they would give the AG, that there was a jealous sibling involved?
He should visit his wife on Easter break. Sad to
see her done like this. Dropped off like that.
If experience makes one the best man for the job , why do we have term limits for the president position?? After criticizing the conservative, Chris McDaniel, about having no experience at the Federal level and then calling him a basher, Thad goes further with one of his old liberal tricks by saying “all Chris does is criticize”. Like , it’s ok for me to criticize my opponent but bad if the conservative does it. Liberal logic , I reckon.
Thad has been in congress over 40 years. What I’d like to hear from him is the truth about his voting record for 4 decades and what he has done to help the lives of us Columbus folks. Not negative ads and comments from him about his opponent.
I have some questions for you , Mr. Cochran, 1. why won’t you actually use your pen and cosponsor the Fair Tax bill ? That’s not a hard thing to do and would show a true concern for tax reform and demonstrate real leadership. 2. I haven’t heard anything about the Hwy 45 by-pass around Columbus since Mayor Rupp quit his job and moved to Starkville. Why haven’t you tried to help us with the by pass in over 40 years in Congress ? 3. What is your vision and plans to help Columbus for the next 6 years if you happen to be reelected?
I’m sick of all your negative baloney about our State Senator , Mr. Cochran. Tell me what you’ve done in the past 40 some years in Congress to help Columbus and why you voted for liberal causes that have hurt Columbus. What are you going to do , not just talk about, for the next 6 years if reelected?
That’s some of the things that Columbus folks want to hear from you, Sir. No more negative stuff about our fine State Senator , Chris McDaniel, please. We want to know more about you , will your past record and vision for the next 6 years sink or float? Why should I vote for you again ? Presently, I’m planning to vote for Chris McDaniel.
I’m sure the Columbus Dispatch and Packet would gladly publish your reply. Thank you, Sir.
Cason was a great Marine and friend; rest in peace Cason. I pray they catch the coward that did this and hold them accountable.
Lcpl Cason park was a brother. Spread the word to find the dirtbag that killed him
Wow, This is kinda shocking. I’m just wondering what kinda of mess this could open up in the future.
LCpl Cason Park was a United States Marine. Please help find the trash that killed him.
Sen Crotchran(sic) needs to take his NDAA & go on into the green pasture.
I don’t know enough about McDaniel, but I do know that Cochran is not conservative enough.
It’s about time for Methuselah er…I mean,That Cochran to fade away? The man still hunts with a blunderbuss!
When MSU hired Van, she was asked how long it would take to beat Bama – she stated “seven innings’. She did that Saturday but went just a tad long on Sunday. Congrats to Coach Van, the team and all of the OUTSTANDING assistant coaches associated with the program. Stay in it to win it, ladies!

Thank you, Lamonica for coming out to cover our tournament! It was a fantastic day! Columbus Middle School had 12 teams compete at the State tournament in three categories. CMS swept FIRST AND SECOND places in all three of the categories they participated!
Other first place winners include Neshoba Central from Philadelphia, New Hope Christian from Jackson, Appleton Academy from Southaven, and St Anthony Catholic School in Madison.

I think we do need funding so that our roads can be repaired and repaved. Due to the lack of funding our roads have suffered. And if we do have to pay a little more in taxes to have better roads so be it..
Ms. Jackman for a year I have told you so about KIOR. The $225 million plant was written down to $40 million because it cannot reach name plate It can only reach 20% of nameplate and at 2 million gallons a year they have no chance of survival even if Vinod Khosla gives htem $5 million a month for 5 months. Tell the Prof of Chemical Engineering a real Chemical Engineer called the Green Machine has told you in a dozen of so emails that KIOR is a thermodynamic fake.
I think the MSU PD is a good department. It’s about time they get away from the “Good Ole Boy System” and start letting officers do their job.
This article is misleading. KIOR’s IPO was at $15 not $5 per share. The money that Gates and Khosla put into KIOR in October was not $100 million it was a commitment for $100 million but $50 million was put in. Now let’s focus on the $5 million Khosla will actually give KIOR this month. This will keep it going for a month and then Khosla will see if he gives it another $5 million a month going forward to August. The Company wrote down the plant in Columbus to approximately $40 million from a cost of $225 million because the plant is impaired and cannot produce nameplate of 13 million gallons a year. It can only produce about 2 million gallons a year. KIOR has no hope at this level of production and hence the story they have concocted to say they will work on improving technology while the plant is shut. They have had almost 7 years to work on technology. The fat lady is on her way to Columbus and is ready to sing.
We passed this? Really? What religious freedom have I stomped on? I am asked to bow my head at my kids school, I’m asked to have a moment of silent prayer during assemblies, at graduations I’m told we need to open with a prayer. When the hell have I walked in your church, school, or assembly and told you ‘ok everyone, circle up we’re going to call the quarters now and bless the area, after that then we can continue.’ Never. Religious freedom? Right to discriminate. Anyone who is with this bill should be nothing short of ashamed. Period. Christians tell people they are being discriminated against when the ONLY RELIGION MAKING LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY is Christianity. This is the worst state for children and women to live in, and I’m pretty sure we’ll be moving soon. I thought at least someone in the legislature of our state would have half a brain, guess it was a little much to hope for.
MOVE ????? Are you still here, get going …..we don’t need your type here in Mississippi.
It’s worth adding to this “news” item that Speaker Gunn is conveniently leaving out the fact that what passed in the U.S. House and Senate was later declared unconstitutional.
First let me say that yes, there is a pending lawsuit against the Louisville-Winston County Airport Board. This suit is for civil rights violations, which is a completely different matter.
Let me explain the issue I have about concerning ethics. There are laws set forth for the Airport Board and any other board or business entity to follow.
There are eight basic prohibitions contained in Mississippi’s Ethics in Government Laws:
-Board Member Contracts (Section 109, Miss. Const. of 1890, and Section 25-4-105(2), Miss. Code of 1972)
-Use of Office (Section 25-4-105(1), Miss. Code of 1972)
-Contracting (Section 25-4-105(3)(a), Miss. Code of 1972)
-Purchasing Goods and Services (Section 25-4-105(3)(b), Miss. Code of 1972)
-Purchasing Securities (Section 25-4-105(3)(c), Miss. Code of 1972)
-Insider Lobbying (Section 25-4-105(3)(d), Miss. Code of 1972)
-Post Government Employment (Section 25-4-105(3)(e), Miss. Code of 1972)
-Insider Information (Section 25-4-105(5), Miss. Code of 1972)
The issue with the Louisville-Winston County Airport Board is that they are in current violation of some of the above Ethics in Government Laws. Section 109, Miss. Const. of 1890, and Section 25-4-105 (2), Miss Code of 1972) reads: (2) No public servant shall be interested, directly or indirectly, during the term for which he shall have been chosen, or within one (1) year after the expiration of such term, in any contract with the state, or any district, county, city or town thereof, authorized by any law passed or order made by any board of which he may be or may have been a member. Now with showing you the law I would like to say that some of the board members currently have contracts for hangars at the airport in Louisville where they hold a position on the board which violates the above listed law of ethics. I have asked that they terminate their current contracts at the airport and the positions they hold for a term of one year which is what the law states should happen. I have simply asked that the Louisville-Winston County Airport board members who are in violation have to follow the laws like every other citizen has to do. This is the issue at hand. This issue is completely different than the lawsuit that is currently pending against the airport. Let me say once again that the lawsuit has nothing to do with the issue of ethics as that is a totally different matter.
What a great group of kids- Chicago for Nationals- an honor Tupelo Show Choirs have never achieved….what a great thing!!! Help support these kids as they continue…..CHICAGO BOUND!!!

Why do I feel like Big Brother Government is some how responsible for this in order to force senior citizens into getting the already too expensive OBAMA CARE tax increase.

We are heartbroken to hear about the loss of Don. We will miss his so much. My husband, Kim and Don were very good friends, they thought so much alike and they both loved to fish. We had a camp down in Happy Jack, La. Don & Dee would come down and fish and visit. Dee we are sorry to hear about Don.
He will always be in our hearts and prayers!

I went to school with him, I can’t believe he would do somethin like this.
How can a bond be set before he is arrested?
I moved from Mississippi in 2010 to Saint Louis MO where pickleball is played at most all community centers, some fitness centers and church basements.
I’ll soon be back in the Brandon area for a couple months and hope somewhere in the area Pickleball will be played so I can continue in the fun sport. It’s extremely good cardiac and respiratory exercise, good for balance and good exercise for the brain as you have to keep up with scores, individuals place on each team (if you play doubles), rules, etc. – lots of seniors in other states are doing it and in 2015 there will be a Senior Pickleball Olympic Tournament in Minneapolis/St. Paul MN area.
C’mon, MS let’s get up off the sofa and burn some calories! Turn off the tv, set those phones aside and get this fun and competitive sport going not only for the good of the seniors and school children but for ages in-between as well.
is just me…or does this seem like a long time coming….my mother is from eupora thus my mother’s side of the family lives there….i’ve been visiting family for years in eupora and getting my hair did at my aunt’s beauty salon around the corner from Eupora high school…and every time i make that turn and go by the high school i smell gas as though there’s a gas leak somewhere near and all over that area…my mom says its normal…she’s smell it ever since she was a child…just a thought
glad no one got hurt and pray that eupora high school students are able to go back to school very soon.

Yes Kior has kept its commitmentsto the city, the county, and the port authority. But they vilated the laws of thermodynamics in doing so. I suggest you all call Condi Rice as a witness. She claimed the technology was a “reality” in March 2013. She also thought Iraqi WMDs were a reality. Amazing how she resigned in December then in January the SEC starts investigating. Did she get some goverment inside information to bail out??? I suggest you all read my work in exposing the faking of thermodynamics at KIOR. Go to http://www.greeneexplored.com
They didn’t beak out all that gear for no reason. Officer safety is always their main concern. I’m sure there is more to the story that what is being released.
I am his step Grandmother. I have know this boy since he was little. The most kind person I have known. So sorry for the officers and family I will keep them in my prayers. My Husband is a retired police officer so I no how the family would feel. I don’t no what happen to Kent except money can drive you crazy when you can not meet house payments etc. He lost his Mother a few years ago and I no he felt all alone after she died. My Daughter is his step Mother and she has loved him from the first time she meant him . His whole family loves him and just can not believe this has happened. Please be kind to him as my heart aches for him. Every body is in my prayers.
We are truly sorry for the officers wounded and their families. They are in our prayers. Please do not judge someone until you’ve walked in their shoes. So many people are struggling in this world today.
We are truly sorry for the officers that were wounded and our hearts go out to them and their families. Please do not judge him until you have walked in his shoes. Everybody is going thru hard times.
Something is fishy about this. They went to his house to perform a welfare check, because family was worried. Then they put on all their tactical gear, grabbed assault rifles, and were heading into the house. Why break out the artillery?
God Bless They Family

Weather changes, especially barometric drops, cause me pain in my lower back and sinus pressure headaches. But regular stretches, exercise, staying hydrated, and a little aspirin always takes care of the pain!

It is beyond my mind how any decent human being could cause harm to an innocent child.
I pray for God’s comfort upon this child & her mother.
Perhaps it would behoove the City of Columbus to hire someone who could possibly pay attention to details.
I would like to know if there is going to be any consequences fo either tyler smith who murdered cliff. Or the guards who obviously didnt do there jobs. Being as these inmates were not supposed to have contact. Also where were the guards during the whole assault(MURDER) were they part of the murder or just that incompetant that Cliff had to pay with his life. I would also like to now how this person felt so intimidated buy cliff since he was barely over a hundred pounds. Also how was he intimidated buy cliffs friends/ acquantences since cliff had been transferred that month and wasn’t in population at any time to plot or make friends with someone who also would want tyler dead. So my question for the prison is why would you transfer cliff to what someone would assume would be a safer place to have you supervise his murder and than put in the paper that there will be an investigation and consequences and I have been hunting in every article and have not once seen any consequences as a matter of fact. I dont evan see Tyler as an inmate any more and if you let him walk out on his out date after murdering someone than that really does make it look like your guards were purposely involved in cliffs death. He was a very sweet man and did not deserve to be murdered he was paying for what he had done wrong and we all were looking forward to him being released. I hope and pray karma pays every one of the people involed back for there parts in this and i hope the family sues both mississippi dept of corrections because i and alot of other people would be more than willing to mail money to the family to help pay for a lawyer to make sure you all have to pay. I also think the family should sue each incompetant guard who didnt do there job and also sue the murderer who seems to have been working with the prison so he could get out early or get protection from the people he was paid to kill cliff for.
I thank it will be a great idea for the young people that get involve with the wrong crowd.
Such a tragic, Chris was a good Christian man, and a good friend, always had a smile and very happy. You will be missed, prayers for the families.

You can request a copy by calling 662-327-4444 and speak to the receptionist. Thanks!
I’m afraid Ms. Peters’ report was a bit misleading. If you read the article about the drop in obesity rates (Page 8B, Wednesday Dispatch), you will note that the rate drop was in toddlers ages 2 to 5.
I’m very proud that the schools have made healthy changes in food prepared for our children, I’m also proud of Mrs. Obama’s efforts in this regard.
However, the age group in this study has not yet reached the school lunchrooms nor the exercise group pictured in the report.
Hi Mr. Harris,
In most school districts across the state and country, Pre-school begins at 3 years old and 5-year olds are in kindergarten. They are eating school lunches along with the older children.
Thanks for the feedback and thanks for watching!
I don’t understand how we can be so cautious as to not discriminate against a group(s) of people when the people who steadfastly have their trust in God are being so openly and vindictively discriminated against. Don’t we still have the right to serve or sell to anyone we choose without the government dictating who that will be or not be, despite the reason?
In God I Trust.
I loved the “Growing Interest of Genealogy” segment. My family has been searching our genealogy and have found some very interesting facts. One being that they were brought here from Virginia as slaves, returned to Virginia and came back after the Civil War to Monroe and Chickasaw Counties, Mississippi as sharecroppers and made their homes here. We have probate records listing them as property and their monetary values while they were slaves. We also have Freedmen’s Bureau Records transportation lists showing when they returned to Mississippi in 1865. Thank you for airing that segment it was great.
We’d love to see the video when possible…currently it says “not available”…BIG Thank you to Allie and his wife for helping us meet the lovely Priscilla! We are just so blessed to have that experience!
We need more groups like this who so willingly share their talents and bring joy to the recipients!
Good luck on your trip to New York Columbus choral Society!
Is there any group photos that you have?
Why not publish their names as wanted for questioning? They will for other things! Those 3 are no different then you or I. Its people like this that makes it hard for all races to get along.
If if’s and but’s were candy and nuts, we’d all have a wonderful Christmas. There is no excuse for this system failing. This system should be constantly monitored for problems by competent staff. It doesn’t matter about “we’re installing new sirens” when they system you have is in stand-by mode and not functioning. There are no excuses for this.
Thank the Lord for dumb criminals. They are out on bond, I see. I wonder if the security company bonded them before letting them loose in homes and businesses? I hope so, for the security company’s sake. Don’t believe they need to come in pairs. It’s hard to follow behind more than one. In over 25 years, I never had a problem with John Beard ‘s company.
Reform voters ‘may’ get a voice??? Actually Reform has already had a voice multiple times. This isn’t the first time this issue has been brought up and the voices of Reform have said ‘NO’. Just like other things in politics, the thinking is ‘just keep pushing it until it passes’, no matter what the PEOPLE have said time and time again. Another interesting fact left out of this report is the petition by the ‘random group of citizens’ was actually denied on the first submission due to some of the names weren’t registered voters within the city of Reform and some names couldn’t be verified at all. I guess they took a page out of the democrat playbook. PS: I am a lifelong resident of Reform (30+ years) and I will be voting NO on March 4th solely based on my own morals and convictions.. something that is heavily lacking in this country today.
I work at the Sprint Mart in Reform Alabama. Mr Swedenburg came in to the store an asked if someone could help him by calling to the bus station to see how much a ticket to Texarkana Arkansas would be that was the first day on February 5. February 6 He came in that morning round 11am an said he over slept for his bus ride so I called bck to the bus station an he said he will take the 330 bus. He wanted me to call a cab but a gentle I knew took him straight to the bus station an he returned back to the store an hour or so later an said he dropped him off safely
Tara was my oldest sister! We are asking for continuous pray during this time! We love and Miss her everyday!
Makes you wonder if Ms. Clayton signed up for Obamacare on their unsecured website; or if she gave the information to the workers that were going around collecting information? There was a lot of talk about identities being compromised for people who had visited that website.
So sad that these young men are given the opportunity of a lifetime…..the chance to play football in the SEC and get a free education to boot…..and they totally blow it.
One Saturday morning last month my family and I hiked around Lake Lowndes and saw thousands of these. Some were very large and the children pretended they were Big Foot claws!!
Sad. You can’t trust anyone to take care of elderly or kids.
So sad to hear about his passing. I remember watching him play. He was a first-class person and athlete !!
I knew Joe through his older brother, Lewis. I had asked about him several times and hated to hear Lewis had died earlier. My sympathy to the families.
I think this is a great bill. I do not smoke, but it seems ever where I take my family there is a ton of smoking. I can’t stand to walk through the smoke due to the smell. It also can affect my children’s health due to have one child that has asthma and on numerous occasion she has had flare ups after being in public places.
I did not know Tara, but she was my daughter-in-law’s first cousin. I hurt with them. Praying peace and comfort in the days to come.
with all that is needed in Mississippi they waste time with this . people pay heavy to drive in the state in taxes
people move over for emergency vehicles now there own lane wrong very wasteful. Just maybe we need a big change here. hum back to horse and buggy
This is such a horrible tragedy. Tara was such a sweet person and I’m greatful that I got to know her before God took her home. PLEASE everyone pray for Tara’s husband and young children as they try to accept this loss and cope with her absence in the coming days/weeks. Pray that God gives them comfort and understanding through this very difficult time.
Thank you for your kind words about my sister!
No, Sir. I didn’t miss that. I also didn’t miss the only mention of one million in the article:
“Once the suspects were in custody, agents discovered the organization had supplied cocaine with estimated street values totaling more than $1 million, Director Owens said.”
Now while $1 million is an impressive amount of drug traffic for Oktibbeha County, this is simply the amount of business the cops estimated the group did at all.
This means that, in order for them to have seized $1 million in drugs, the group would have never gone through with a single transaction.
The police only seized $66k worth of drugs according to the article.
And I made this not to complain about the police department and the use of our tax dollars but, rather, misleading journalism practices that fool people who don’t read the entire article.
As a retired law enforcement officer it isn’t misleading. Don’t know what part of the article you read but I guess you missed the YEAR LONG investigation part. The money they seized only refers to want they got during the search warrant. I’m sure after a year of investigation that’s the cumulative amount these diapers made. If they 40 to 60 thousand in one week. Do the math for a year
the media do it all the time, but the street value is a million….and it doesn’t matter to me if it’s a million or 66 thousand it’s alot and i’m glad it’s off the streets.
What about the Houston Texas distributor now ? Apparently they know who they are
I agree it’s misleading and 1 million is actaully 100,000 whatever it takes to make them sound like they accomplished something with our tax dollars
This title is misleading. They seized $66k worth of drugs, not $1 million. The article gives the correct information. Estimating the amount of business the organization has done is not the same as the worth of the drugs seized.
The title is in fact not accurate. However, instead of focusing on the error by the news agency, why not give a big Hooray and thanks to the hard working men and women who spent nights and days away from their families to make this bust happen. It is a sad fact in our world today that many people would rather point out minor errors instead of celebrating huge accomplishments that benefit our good citizens. For my part, I celebrate and congratulate the men women, and agencies that came together to make our area a little bit safer.
Do you know if Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science open or are they closed?
Grateful for all you do to help.
It they would read the Bible they would have the answer they need.It’s wrong stand against it like using drugs and drinking. God said it that settles it.
What chapter in bible that it say that because I’m have problem with my wife and I dont like it at all.
He was shot because the “child” who shot him didn’t have the nerve, or other manly parts, to face the person he was having a beef with, so he drove by the store and sprayed the building hoping this would impress his victim. All he really did was shoot an innocent person.
EMCC’s focus on quality and success in all things positively impacts the local community and state of Mississippi. EMCC’s biggest asset is its PEOPLE. Dedicated and passionate in making a difference in the lives of others, people pull together achieving the common goal.
Finally some options!The teachers tell me my 9 year old child will never be academically equal to children his age.He is getting some kind of special instruction,but he will never be able to get more than a GED even if he stays in school for the twelve years.However no one will assist me in having him declared as having a disability.Maybe taking him out of school can help find something he can learn that will help prepare him for earning a living.
Not much news of schools in Alabama if you going to keep Al. Countys in your veiwing area dont forget about us
She is beautiful. Hope she wins KOTN! Really like her.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE AHS JAZZ BAND AND GIFTED ART STUDENTS OF AHS—WONDERFUL performance by the students of Aberdeen High!! Toni Reece and Valerie Brahan are extraordinary teachers who are blessed to be exposed to such talented kids! Job WELL done–Andrew Parker!! and everyone on stage! Something POSITIVE for Aberdeen, and always a joy to watch every year for the past 10 years. It would have a plus to been able to hear some of the music and voices on stage…maybe next time, huh WCBI?
It’s time to start punishing these kids for doing this. If they served some jail time it may make others think about what will happen if they do it. I dont care what the age is, the know right from wrong at that age.
Something smells fishy.
This is just terrible. I live right down the street from this store and go there everyday. The store owner is such a kind man, who I often see disrespected. However, he remains calm and smiling every day I see him. Also, the victim who was shot has always been polite every time I have seen him up there. I have never seen him hang around the “troubled”
Crowd. I just can’t believe he would be mixed up in anything bad, so this shooting seems absolutely senseless.. Not that any shooting is, but I can’t think of one motive their would be to harm this man.
He’s a good ole boy he is just going through a tough time. The boy just ain’t thinking clearly.
We love, Mrs. Beddies and are so glad her family is reunited!

A teachers contract is for 9 months. Many teachers have their salary divided into 12 equal pay checks as they are only paid once a month. Even though the students do not start in early August doesn’t mean that the teachers who usually start before August 1st will not continue to start work before the students. These teachers are VERY underpaid. If you don’t believe me then work with my son who teaches 8th grade History…. You could even do a news segment on in the Day of a Life of a Middle School Teacher…..
GREAT NEWS! Other states should stand up and take note, don’t be afraid to proclaim WHO is responsible for the existence of their state and the whole world!
I hope they catch this lowlife and punish him to the Mac!!!
I also feel that dropping five days would prevent holiday schedules from being disrupted and it would keep the school from extending until June. Furthermore, I do not feel that it would interfere with the learning process.
I think this s a great idea! There are several wasted days to last weeks of school.
Shame on Webster county and WCSWM. Fix this road or his supervisor go get the trash and take it the fourth mile. He is paying for it to be picked up at his house or refund his money. How would you like to have several monthes of trash sitting in your yard. SEND A TRUCK and do what he has been paying for!!!!!!!!!! If someone was throwing trash out on side of road you would be raising cain !!!!!! So what’s the difference??????
If they have been incarcerated for three days, they must charge them, which is then Public Record – freedom of information act!
If the red cross was on the scene they must have though there would be some hand out to them, or something in it for them. I wouldn’t give the sweat off my neck.
This is another reason for the people to look at the government or should I say NO government we now have in place, regardless of Republican or Democrat…..vote them out.
We need regulations on big oil that will not allow them to rape the people as they are. We regulate the utilities but not big oil and they can charge what ever they want, go up when they want.
Come on people, call that government rep and demand better…..after all it’s your dollar.
Linda I’m praying for your Family. Trusting in God that Shonda will return home safely.
Thanks Starkville! I’m glad I live here!
Is it funny that Starkville managed to do this meaningless panderous liberal nonsense before it was able to actually provide anyone a reason to live there?
Why give this group or any group special recognition? Why not pass a resolution states that the City of Starkville is intolerant of discrimination against anyone in any form? Would this not be sufficient to cover everyone with out singling out any particular group?
It does, if you actually read the resoluition by the City…
The City of Starkville declares it the public policy to respect the inherent worth of every person, without regard to a person’s race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity and expression, age marital status, sexual orientation, familial status, veteran’s status, disability or source of income.
No a blanket statement of nondiscrimination against “anybody” wouldn’t be sufficient because many people still consider gender identity and sexuality a “choice” (which it isn’t) and as such, they conclude that discrimination against LGBTs is acceptable because “they” don’t “count.” Starkville is sending a clear message that yes, “they” do.
Why give this group or any group special recognition? Why not say that the City of Starkville is intolerant of discrimination against anyone and in any form? Would that not be sufficient to cover everyone?
Christopher will greatly be missed, a guy with a smile never to be forgotten. I always looked forward to seeing him when going into subway, here in cherokee. Please everyone pray for family.
Church was great……
We appreciate your coverage. Thanks

Columbus Schools and I have settled any disagreement we may have had via a no falut agreement and the matter has been completely settled. I resigned as Superintendent in November 2013 and the Board of trustees accepted my resignation as indicated in a letter to me from the Board President on behalf of the school board. No laws were broken on my part or any other district employee, community member or board member I’m aware of who used Aramark catering services. The company is an independently owned and nationally recognized food service vendor/contractor who had the autonomy to provide catering services for internal adn external clients using their company’s good and employees by agreement with the former Superintendent that proceeded my tenure. If any error in invoices were made, it was made by the Aramark food service director who was not an employee of the school district. The board and I have put this matter to rest and citizens should do the same.
I’ve been honored to know this great lady all of my life. This family has always been like a second family to me. I’ve spent countless hours with three of her granddaughters at her son’s house when we were growing up. Love this woman like another grandmother to me! And I don’t believe I’ve ever seen her live anywhere but the house she lives in to this day. Hoping she can celebrate many more birthdays!!
fdxsg I totally agree with you, a pure and simple waste of taxpayer money.
Some people might look @ drug testing in a negative way but this bill being passed can help some people. Just maybe if they can get clean they can get a job and keep it to support their own families.
The majority of people on welfare have jobs already but they don’t pay enough to support themselves. Assuming everyone that’s on welfare is in drugs is ignorant. This is going to cost too much money and be a waste. Other states have already done this and it failed miserably.
I think this maybe a way to help people stop using the system to support their drug habits. Now they maybe able to gain employment and keep it to support their own families.
If people who work are subject to random drug testing in order to keep their job and make the money needed to provide for their families, then people who receive public assistance should be required to do the same,
You aren’t required to take a drug test to keep your job, you are required to take a drug test so that the company can avoid legal liability if you hurt somebody while on drugs.
How do you figure you are not required to take a drug test to keep your job, try refusing to take it and see what happens. How stupid can you be?
I totally agree, they need to follow the same guidelines….after all they are no better than the rest of us.
Columbus Schools and I have settled any disagreements we had via a no fault settlement agreement. Certified teachers or administrators who have or may have contractual disputes are legally entitled to a due process hearing where issues on both sides of the isle are aired and an impartial hearing officer hears the case under most circumstances. And makes a recommendation to boards. Due process is designed to ensure fairness and to separate fact from rumors and unsubstantiated claims. To say an employee has been fired without due process is reckless and misleading. As indicated in a documented letter by the president of Columbus Board of Trustees, I resigned my position and my resignation was accepted by the trustees. I have no ill will for the school district or board members and wish them well in the future. I am focused on public service through non-profit causes that make lives better for the state and community. I felt it necessary to clear up misconceptions with facts.

What a joke, and a miss use of the tax payers money
I am so proud of Mrs. Billie Smith! She is a hardworking educator. Her school district is blessed to have a principal who is caring, capable, and professional at the helm of Fairview Elementary School. Congratulations Mrs. Smith from your family in St. Louis, MO.
What a wonderful outreach
what i want to know is why did they set her hair on fire?
I want to win a wedding!!! I absolutely love Kay’s!
Prof Rust the plant cost aprox $225 million. Mr. Davidson thanks for posting my email to you. Please post all the other emails I sent you and Ms. Jackman going back 8 months now how I told you all that Kior could never yield their claimed gallons of fuel per bone dry ton of pine. Also post the email I sent you all about their catalyst cost being over $10 per gallon
Could be? No should be expelled forever right then. And Juv. Court won’t do anything to them should be adult court if they can charge a 13 yr old boy for murder when his sister killed her husband only one victim yet both charged & he got life they can send them to adult court for fenoly charges. If that was my child being expelled & the justice system would be the least of there worries. That is horrible not just normal child hood behavior psychotic behavior.
This plant appears to be able to produce about 1.5 million gallons of fuel per year. This is not very much. Ethanol plants produce about 100 million gallons per year in comparison. The plant could fuel about 3000 vehicles per year.
No information is given about the cost of the plant. I suspect it is way over $100 million which infers the capital costs per car this plant could service is over $30,000 per year. Add in cost of materials, other energy sources, payrolls, etc. and the fuel costs must be around $10 per gallon or more. Not too attractive unless you are on a federal government expense account–Department of Defense doesn’t mind paying $27 a gallon for fuel. This could be a fuel supplier for the new Farm To Fleet program to have renewables supply 50 percent of military fuel requirements by renewable fuels by 2030 announced by the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and Department of Agriculture last December.

My email to Mr. Davidson and Ms. Lackman of August 21, 2013
Folks about 2 months ago I sent you all an email that Ms. Jackman had stumbled upon a real big story in your little town of Columbus where the KIOR plant is located. You all ignored me!!!! Ms. Jackman stated that only a single truckload of product had been shipped out of the plant as of the date of her report. I picked up on this and reported that KIOR was going nowhere. Few believed me but now all the “greenies” have got it KIOR cannot yield 72 gallons of diesel from a bone dry ton of wood.
The ambulance chasing lawyers will file numerous suits and Ms. Jackson report of the single solitary truckload will become the key evidence how the company lied about “success”. Condi Rice is deep trouble as she cannot claim immunity of office for the missing weapons of mass combustion. Ms. Jackman I too am a novice journalist and I won the National Newspapers Association first prize for a serious column in exposing Bloom Energy (another former secretary of state sits on their board his day of judgement will also soon come). Ms. Jackman may get an Emmy for exposing KIOR even though your channel had no clue you actually were doing this.
I just love this story of how a naive reporter in the backwaters of America is sent to report on local plant that practices alchemy and suddenly the former Secretary of State of the US is embroiled in a stock manipulation scandal.
We have to keep our free press press despite the Complex including your network trying so hard to favor the members of the complex. Yes Leslie Stahl on Sixty Minutes launched Bloom Energy for her friends Al Gore, Colin Powell, and John Doerr. I hope you all have Haley Barbour’s number he brought you KIOR. Condi Rice can be reached at Stanford University where she was seen buying up surplus Immodium.

COULD BE expelled??? Certainly you meant MOST LIKELY WILL BE EXPELLED!!!
The parents or gaurdians of this victim should go to justice court and file aggravated assault charges on these two criminals. They knew better then to do this. They shall also be expelled for a year at the minium and not allowed back in the same school the victim is attending. This may sound harsh but what if it was adults doing this to adults? I hope and pray that justice will be given to the victim!
Major Bullying . IT makes me so mad . and then so sad for little girl . I have a 12 year old girl. the peer Pressure she endures daily is bad enough. But physical ABUSE .!!!!!1
385,000 gallons in 65 days is 5,923 gallons per day at say 275 tons per day of dry pine (between 250 and 300 as the CEO stated) is 21.5 gals per ton. This is after 16 months of “starting up” http://www.wcbi.com/wordpress/kior-reaches-milestone
The folks who work for Kior at the Columbus site have bust their butts and they should be proud. The company simply lied about its technology.
Is there a way you can get data from the utility that provides the site natural gas to see how much natural gas they use?
At 10,400 BTU per lb of yellow pine their wood energy in a ton going in is 20.8 million BTU per ton. 21.5 gallons of the stuff they make has 2.58 million BTUs. on the wood only they are 12.4% efficient. Add the electricity and the natural gas and they could be as low as 6 or 7% efficient. This is a sick joke that was played by Khosla and Rice on you all in MIssissippi and particularly in Columbus.
Sadly I told you so long ago

Currently the State of Mississippi have rules and regulations that governs operations of railroad companies equipment and property that operates within boundaries of Mississippi. The Mississippi Transportation Commission, Mississippi Department of Transportation and Department of Public Safety is responsible for enforcing said rules and regulations.
MISSISSIPPI STATUTES AND CODES
Title 77 – Public Utilities and Carriers
Chapter 9 – Railroads and Other Common Carriers
77-9-257 Inspections of railroads.
The Mississippi Transporation Commission shall have every inspected whenever it shall deem the same necessary, but at least once in each year. The results must be entered upon the minutes of the commission and embraced in it’s reports, and must embrace information as to the condition of the roadbed, rolling stock and depots, and such other facilities and equipment as the commission may deem proper. Whenever the commission shall find any roadbed, tunnel,switch or any part of a railroad track, or any rolling stock in actual use (by said railroad company), in an unsafe condition, it shall direct the railroad company to make the necessary repairs.
77-9-237 – Speed limit in cities
In part states that any railroad company having the right of way may run locomotives and cars through cities and towns, at the rate of THIRTY MILES an hour and no more.
If Kansas City Southern Railroad can legally run it locomotives and cars through City of Columbus at THIRTY MILES an hour; then why does Kansas City Southern Railroad continually run it’s locomotives and cars at TEN MILES an hour (at an inconvenience to motorist [ 77-9-481 Duties of Railroad inspectors to enforce the rules and regulations of the Transportation Commissions]). Kansas City Southern is well aware that it’s roadbed and tracks lay in a state of disrepair and speeds at or near THIRTY MILES an hour would result in a derailment of it’s locomotive and cars. Drivers (taxpayers) shouldn’t waste their time contacting Kansas City Southern Railroad, taxpayers should contact the Mississippi Transportation Commission.
Why is Columbus having large retail stores opening there and Statkville has no growth? What is Starkvilke doing wrong? The crime is worse in Columbus, the college is smaller and overall, there is a larger population in Starkvilke and surrounding areas. Still Starkville does not encourage growth, but strangles it with regulations and greedy land owners.
As a proud graduate of Mississippi State University, I am always looking for positive roll models at the university to share with my kids. When Tyler met Quinn and his family, I was impressed with all of the pictures Suzanne had shared on Facebook…thinking that it was nice of him to take a few pictures with a family that has been in my thoughts and prayers for so long. Then Suzanne posted that Tyler had the bracelet on at the next ballgame…and the next…and every ballgame after he met Quinn. The amount of happiness Tyler brought to Quinn’s family was amplified through every Facebook friend’s news feed. He just wore a bracelet, but to those who have followed Quinn’s story, he did so much more. Tyler, if you read this, know that your small gesture has touched many hearts. Awareness is priceless. Compassion is priceless. Time is priceless. And Tyler gave the Gregory’s a healthy dose of all three!
I am from Winston Co. and I can assure you everyone here is praying for this special boy and his wonderful family! What Tyler did shows what a truly caring person he is not just a special athlete. such a selfless act from such a great young man.
WOW. An officer gets shot in the line of duty and has to worry about getting paid. That is sad. I understand sick leave, but this seems more like workmans comp. NO WONDERS ITS SO HARD TO FIND GOOD LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS.
I can agree with NOT using the dishwasher and washing and drying clothes during this extreme cold, but I am NOT turning my heat down to 60 degrees….if I wanted me and my baby to freeze I would just sit on the porch. and as for 85 during the summer, why don’t I just live outside and pray for a breeze. I wonder what temp they have their offices? I have been in some and it seems they are heated and cooled at a temperature similar to my house.
Praying for the Johnson family and Jason’s recovery.
well let me first start by saying i was in a rush typing like i am now so if you could read it you got the drift .. people keep saying these people beating memory .. there is one girl beating memory not two or three or seven … so ms odom get your facts straight or please find some way to watch the whole video not the cut version cause to the people that have seen the video you sound like a complete idiot…the fight was one on one and the police know it.. obviously you didnt check the facts in the first paragraph…no complaining about the fifteen year old being the oly one getting jumped huh? guess cause she is not white like memory?
Okay, first of all. Kayla should have been at home with her baby (witch she is Hardly ever.) instead of out sticking her nose into somthing that had NOTHING to do with her nor her sister in the first place. Me and memory are really good friends and memory has been bullied by Kayla. Who hasn’t been bullied by Kayla? You can go to Choctaw county and give out a survey that ask ” have you ever been bullied by Kayla” and 95% of kids will choose yes. As for jasmine. She has bullied me as much as Kayla has but the whole point is. She clearly stated on Facebook. If my kid gets takin away from me, I’m going to kill you. She wouldn’t have to kill her if she was with her kid. Kayla has a lot of growing up to do!!! And as far as Dakotas and memory’s fight, I only heard bits and peices. But Dakota is no better than no one else at cchs. There’s plenty of people that can tell you the only reason she is “friends” with kAyla and jas is because she is scared of them. Or because she can go to there house or out with them to see whoever she is having sexual intercourse with. Bullying needs to stop now!!
The news said non life threatening but I know for a fact that one of the young men is fighting for his life so I think that’s life threatening to shoot someone like that that John Hand is the devil this world consist of everyone and John you don’t have the power to say who can and can’t live in it you nor anyone else only God has that say so so stop the haterd and learn to love one another my God bless and keep us all safe my prayers and blessings goes out to the families of the victims and the accuser let’s stop the violence and hate
This is so sad! I moved my child from this school several years ago and her and Memory have remained friends over the years. Where is your school administration when it started at school. Also, Where is your law when needed? Probably with somebody else’s wife!!!!!!! The only thing I got to say is several girls against one-those girls are COWARDS!!! Those girls will get what is coming to them!!!!!!!! DO NOT stop until you get to the end regardless of what the punishment has to be for them. They look like a bunch of CHICKENS to me since they can’t fight fair (One on One)! Tonya and Robin y’all are good people!
I personally know both of these girls. They are both at fault for wanting to fight. Their parents should have taught them that fights and arguments do not have to be handled physically. The girl seen beating Memory has also threatened me before, just because I am friends with people she does not like. She is bad news. She should be spending time with her one year old son, not getting in fights over silly drama. While no one deserves to be beaten like this (the fight was clearly won after the first few hits) it would not be a bad thing if she got a taste of her own medicine.
I could care less how or if any of them went their to fight, what cause the fight or anything else the video doesn’t show this girl even trying to defend herself. The ones who did this is cowards because they had a group beating her and the larger built kid that hits her in the head shows anger issues that I feel requires some mental evaluation. The parents of those kids should think long and hard at what they have raised! To me, I would as a parent, wonder where I went wrong.
To the concerned citizen.. Of course the whole story doesn’t matter does it ? Well not to people who know the half of it and can come to judgment. Way to be the false Christians we expected of you. You are no better than the bully and by bully I mean Memory the 18 year old girl that lost. But if she had won everyone would be on here singing her praises and how the minor got what she deserved or maybe how it was divine justice, which maybe it was…The parents of any of the children were not there for a fact also Memory arrived with adults with bats in jimmy Steadman’s vehicle. On the longer video you hear clearly Memory saying she came there to fight… Clearly and she got one. Her family members are heard on wcbi’s video claiming she has been terrified for weeks when there are clear screen shots of her on insta-gram last weekend at the movies and out partying the night of the fight, the next day and the day after with face pics of her and her friends laughing with out a bruise mark black eye or sign of harm. I am patiently awaiting for the rest of the story to come forward on WCBI when the minors or their parents are interviewed. I know those children and I also know their parents and I can guaranty that they do not go looking for fights but do not back down or run from fights either. Just because their parents did not teach them to go into the fetal position during a fight and memory’s parents did everyone is mad and bent out of shape. The fight ended up with it being three on two if you have seen the full video but the two stood victorious. When you push children into a corner and give them know way out and this includes the school administration what to you expect to happen ? I this 18 year old playing victim is so innocent why is she at the park in the first place? She clearly states SHE IS THERE TO FIGHT. She called up the crowd of by standers, you know they are referred to as “wild dogs” which her parents I am sure to pleased to hear she is dating not one but two of them “wild dogs”. But you know when things look dirty they usually are… You are correct on a couple of things adults should put a stop to this and the school did a terrible job. The minors parent’s are good people and would have glad to talk to this girls parents at anytime. If it were my child that feared going to school so much that the teachers had to escort her to class and back and forth to the car daily then I would have done something but her parents obviously did nothing. Place the blame were it should be, cowards can only hide for so long. Everything catches up to everyone sooner or later. The person playing the victim in this news story is not a victim as your eyes are telling you but the minors parents have told me that they the upmost faith in the Ackerman police department. They are also are not worried about good old boy politics or fake high-society chatter, they pay taxes just like everyone else and their children have the right to feel safe when attending a public school. The girls have not had a physical confrontation on school grounds this year while the 18 year old Memory has had two. Also when some one brags about threatening a 15 year old and sucker punches them in the back shows you how this girl had to be raised. God Bless You Too…I will pray for you all..
Person who knows the whole story why don’t you stop being a coward and hiding behind this website and take all your bold comments and remarks to the police If u feel like something should be done instead of running your mouth and being disrespectful. Second, learn proper grammer and spelling before you want to go on a rant that u should clearly be keeping your nose out of. Nobody wants to take someone seriously who cant spell correctly. Lastly,The police will handle things the way they see fit.
First of all, this is not even an investigative report. The reporter said herself that the child was involved in another fight previously. Done. Stop complaining that WCBI is not telling the whole story! The point of the story is that bullying is wrong, posting a video of it on social media is also wrong, and this all needs to be stopped. Don’t tell reporters who know what they’re doing how to do their jobs just because YOU DON’T GET THE POINT.
I know the thomas girls… I know one of them has been in lots of trouble for this sort of thing. But for some reason girls in ackerman . And all over the US have a horrible problem of being so very ugly to each other. There is not any point to all this and it is very heart breaking and I hope that the girls and ALL INVOLVED in the beating of this girl pay for the decisions they have made in this video. It just breaks my heart….
first things first, wcbi you should research a story before you run it. Reporters are supposed to get facts not just opinions!!! Now this girl (Memory) is 18! She beat up a 15 year old girl a couple weeks ago and she was not called out for being a “bully”! Memory started the bullying! She spread rumors about my niece and spread word around the school and Ackerman that she was going to beat up my (minor) niece! Including saying she wished she was dead! Now that the event happened and she didn’t win now her aunt and mom want to say she was bullied. Now for some of these comments: 1. as far as social services- did you see her baby in this film? let me answer that for you-NO you did NOT! 2.The only adults that were present were called by Memory-! That preceded to get out of vehicles with baseball bats! 3. The only sickness there is is that a white 18 year old got beat up by a bi-racial girl. 4. Jumping- yes there was jumping by Memory’s peers on my other niece and her sister stopped them! 5.WCBI if you want to show a video don’t edit it to make it a one-sided viewing!!!! There wasn’t any parents there, but i guess because my niece is bi-racial and they could see part of a black man that it’s automatically her father!!! this is an outrage!!! WCBI you should be ashamed!!!
I know the Thomas girls personally, they have never been violent, UNLESS taunted! They r being bashed for taking up for themselves? People, look at it from bothsides not just one.
Everybody is forgetting,,,,,there’s two sides to every story,,,,,everybody is acting like the girl that’s getting beat up is an innocent teenage girl,,,,when she’s a grown woman…Why wasn’t anything done about when the same girl who’s getting beat,,beat another girl down the same way a few weeks ago,,,The girl who’s being beat in this video became a teacher’s pet at CCHS,,,, Because this girl plays up to the teacher so they can watch her back,,,and take up for her in the time she’s wrong! The girls who’s beating the girl up are minors who’s just reacting to a girl who has been bulling them and getting away with it for to long….#some things happen for a reason
First things first noone’s parents were there period. And second nothing was said when memory beat up a girl a couple weeks before this. Now just because memory was starting rumors and making threats that she couldn’t hold up for everybody got an opion. Memory is 18. All the people standing around in the background, guess what, memory called those people. Those are her friends! WCBI poor journalism, check facts before you put it on the air, like reporters are supposed to instead of tryin to get ratings!! The “adult” friends of memory also came with bats. Some of them ate as old as there 30′s!! And as far as social service haha! Did you see her child o the tape? Let me answer that for you- NO YOU DID NOT!!! People should teach their children( their grown, over-age children) not to start something that they cant finish!!!!
Person Who know the whole story- Our eyes do not lie, it’s all there on video. Those girls ganged up on another girl and beat her. PERIOD. They should be punished to the full extent.
That video clip has parts missing to it. They are bashing the Thomas girls for no reason. The other girls where trying to jump them n the real actual video. The other girls came with bats to use on the Thomas girls. People should do there research n no the whole story b4 they are judged.
First of all, it don’t matter matter who knows the whole story or not, its a matter of as a parent, they should have taught their child better than this, and to be an “adult” and stand there and watch a kid fight just shows how trashy people really can be. It don’t matter what happened, we are to teach our kids to be the better person of every situation and walk away, you know kindness kills, goes a lot further than acting trashy. This makes me sick to know such ignorance has gone on in our little County. You know Choctaw County has always had a good name for itself, but people like this is just gonna bring it down! I hope Justice is served to all that is involved, like the adults that should have been adults and put a stop to this, like the person videoing and posting, I hope they know they can be in just as much trouble and with technology today it can be linked right back to them, and to the person what was “beating” the child, if she does have a child of her own like the talk is, does she realize social services can snatch that child from her.. Reverse the roles here, how would you feel if it was your child, I am sure you wouldn’t be to worried about the whole story you would want your child to be safe and Justice served.. All we can do is pray for the people that has this sickness, and hope that they accept God into their life and ask for forgiveness and be a better person, that what I hope mom and pop raised them to be.. I pray to the God Lord this would never happen to mine because I will sit in jail for my child when it comes to trashy ignorance like this.. God Bless!!
If you think bullying in Choctaw County Mississippi is new, then you are blind. It has been going on for years. I moved to Choctaw County in 1961 as a second grader. The esteemed teacher at that time made the lives of both me and my sister a living hell. She led the class in making fun of us and ridiculing us to the point that we were miserable. Some of the leaders of your wonderful little town of Ackerman were among the very worst offenders. I see their progeny are no better than they were. In case you’re wondering what we did that was so offensive, we were two little girls whose parents divorced and lived with their father, not their mother. Not only did we lose our mother, we were subjected to abuse every day that we attended school there. It continued until we moved away 8 years later and has left scars that will never heal. If Choctaw County disappeared off the face of the earth, I would applaud.
You can clearly see the parent of the child who is attacking Memory standing in the video and he is doing absolutely nothing to get his daughter to stop. He should be held accountable, and his daughter needs to be at home taking care of her own child instead of causing problems in this community. Who teachers their child that doing something like this is appropriate? Throw Him In Jail!!!
First off, it should have never gotten this far. If something was going on at school they should have called both sets of parents and the two children in and had it stopped right there. But now that it has gotten this far, EVERYONE at the park that day (The ones that stood around and done nothing) should be charged with the crime. The one doing the assault, the ones watching (Should have reported it), and the one taking the video. But if the kids would have been properly raised and taught the proper manners then they would have never done this. Yes I know most all kids will be mischevious at times, but if they know they will be held accountable for their actions without the parents and others supporting them in violence like this then they will re-think before they do sensless things like this. These young adults need to be supporting one another instead of trying to hurt or humiliate each other. I have been on both sides before and know how it can affect a child and it still affects to this day.
I completely agree! It should have never gotten this far. The school district was notified prior to all this of the threats etc. that Memory received. Instead of taking care of it properly they came down on Memory. This is a prime example of teachers being at work for the paycheck and not doing their job. Yes this did take place outside of school but maybe if the girls that jumped Memory had been threatened with expulsion like she was they would have thought twice about setting her up.
And this is a fine example of why I went against my beliefs that my children should be in public school & let them HOMESCHOOL when they got past the 10th grade… The school and police dept should be able to deal with this and if not, they should have to answer for this along with the children involved.
REALLY… THESE LADIES ARE LIARS AND SO IS THIER CHILD. THE INNOCENT BY STANDER IS NOT EVEN INNOCENT REALLY PPL…WCBI DID NOT FACT CHECK THIS STORY WHAT SO EVER…BAD JOB FOR GARBAGE NEWS..
Person Who Knows The Whole Story, How about this? How about you write down everyones name that was there, even if you were there, and give it to the police and let them settle it. Yall need to be praying and supporting one another not hurting one another.
Most definitely. . How can someone defend that type of behavior no matter what the reason may or may not have been.. and there will always be different sides to the story no doubt. No one ever wants to take responsibility for actions like that but no matter what that poor girl may have done that made them big ol gals that mad heavens they should have went to police if it was something that bad that made them lash out like that. It is very clear they have major issues. No excuse no matter what for that behavior. Not normal no matter what the circumstances might be. Sorry. Anyone defending that type of behavior has issues especially if you are an adult. Good lord no wonder stuff like that is happening with adults like we have today..its a shame
Regardless of the whole story..it was still a fight and someone was still beat to hell and back
If kids wanna fight about something let them fight in a juvenile detention center
I guess you were an eye witness who stood by while she got beat. I’m sure someone will return the favor to you. NOBODY deserves to be beat like this…. I don’t care what the whole story is. Thank you wcbi for covering this story. It is very eye opening for the parents of Choctaw county high school students!
All i can say … You better be glad this wasn’t my daughter, because the law or your daddy couldn’t protect you from me!
The parents and/or guardians should be held accountable for this. Jail time and fines may stop them or at least slow them down.
These teens who are bullying and physically assaulting the other teens definitely should be held accountable. Their parents and/or guardians should also be held accountable. Let them face jail time and fines. Maybe that will stop them or at least slow them down.
Leave it to a bunch of attorneys to want the Proud State Flag of Mississippi taken down. They probably don’t even know the true history of the flag. You don’t hear of the people of Mississippi telling California to take the bear off there flag. California has greater problems then worrying about a state flag. Get a life will you already.
This is very disturbing.
Anyone who has been in Columbus the last 12 months would typically agree. there are folks driving that I have yet to figure out how they passed their test….
And as far as Iowa having the best drivers, there is nothing but cornfields. Not a good comparison.
He is a good guy, and personally i think he did it out of protecting his self…. but they should get the full evidence before charging him with murder… no one was there but them 3 and God!!! I pray for all families… But I know Isidro personally and he isn’t a killer by all means….
I am very disappointed that the New Hope Trojan baseball team did not make the top ten of the year.The team did win the 5A state championship,
This was so bad. We have the famiies of the officers in prayer
FYI: The website attachment(www.stateofms.yokohamatire.com) does not work or does not go to this website…
The link is working now. Thanks.
That is a 2012 Chrysler 200 Touring model.
That car looks like a newer model Buick to me. Like a LaCross.
Words could not express the pain that the families of the officers are experiencing at this moment. Not only the officers families, but all that were involved in the incident. The trauma of something this devasting happening in broad daylight in Tupelo, MS creates a feeling of insecurity within the area. We all need to be aware and alert of our surroundings each day. This just creates a feeling of emptiness if you any heart at all…. SIncere prayers to all that were involved !
Why not construct a building just North of the Automobile Museum, and have the Veteran’s Museum in conjunction with the Auto museum? The City of Tupelo could help, as well as grant money on tap with the grant writer located in the City confines. The City has provided Mr. Spain a place to house his cars, with the City reaping tourist benefits from that one. A Veterans Museum is not too much to ask for those who served their country.
I am obviously proud to hear and see Casey out there trying to get the message across to all of the people that she can possibly reach. It affects numerous people whether you are the victim or any other person involved. I know how much she and her family miss Brenden because he is our Grandson and Casey is our Daughter.
This was a wonderful kick off campaign for Drive Sober or get pulled over, Ms. Woods story touched many young people’s lives there that day and I and hoping that it did the same to the ones who watched it and read it in the local papers, I have a friend who was also there that day her name is Sherrel Clark, her teenage brother Marty Cox was 18 when he was killed by a drunk driver, her newly married daughter Tori and her unborn ed babies which was twins was killed by a drunk driver also, Sherrel works with MADD and was asked to come and speak at the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, I also help her in her mission in trying to save lives, I was just wondering why her story did not get any attention, it is a hard impact one as well, I thank you for your time in this matter
“Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over”
So very true. And should remember this daily . What an inspiration
Such a touching story. GOD bless the deputy, and all of his family and loved ones.
Love this! And it is sure needed! More support for rescue. Stay safe Cowboy! God speed.
I keep one near by at home and never leave home without one. I prefer the 40 cal myself and if we practice “Thug Maintenance” on a daily basis you would see a big change. Lets take back our country.
Time to keep a loaded pistol under the counter for future prospective thug maintenance.
Again WCBI disappoints us with their lack of coverage regarding the Budweiser Clydesdales coming to our city.We couldn’t make the parade for having other commitments on this date and we rushed home afterwards to see the news and to get a peek at the horses in the parade…what an disappointment.
This is something that had an impact to every kid and grownup kids in the city and county. We in this house don’t even watch the news anymore because, why bother? Award winning news….its a joke and you should be ashamed to even claim the awards. The lack of coverage in this area has a lot of folks looking to other sources to see whats going on…don’t you even feel embarrassed when the Packet out does the TV station in coverage?? Thanks WCBI for your snubbing the one celebrity this town has seen in many years and I’m sure it will be the last time we will see them here in The Friendly City.
Congrats cuz keep up the good work. tony conner
Where exactly are the Coles? Would love to go by to see their lights.
The Coles are off Black Creek Road which is off Military Road; just northeast of Columbus. Their address is: 43 Luxilin Drive Columbus, MS.
I like nominee Tamarcus Williams offensive lineman Noxubee Co first or second team.
Tamarcus was named to the All-End Zone 2nd Team on Wednesday. You can see it right here: http://www.wcbi.com/wordpress/2013-end-zone-game-of-the-year-and-all-end-zone-first-team-announced
Way to Go Mel!!!!!!!!!
Wonderful event for a great friend and high school classmate.
Way to go, Melski!!!!! You are going to be a wonderful director!!!! Congratulations!!!
Yes! That is my mom Yes!!!
If you folks think it’s bad now wait until the Obammy admin. and the EPA closes all the coal fired power plants. There will not be enough power to go around so rolling blackouts (kind of like this will be the every day thing) and outright power shortages will be the normal…..can you say third world country……enjoy people and thank your provider Obammy!!!!!
My heart goes out to the family for this devastation so close to the holidays. I share your heartache as I too have lost 5 family members due to an accident during this time.
So, let me get this right, the voter ID does not have to be current…..ole LeRaw can be dead for 4 or 5 years and it still works……..you got to be kidding.
This needs to be corrected to say Weaver Creek Campground, East of Amory.
You have it going on. That is the way to do it. Keep rolling MS, AL, TN son and nephew.
Don’t you just hate that Robert
Chief Brinkley – Of course we’re extremely sympathetic to the child and family but it’s not the dog. This is more pit bull propaganda. Declaring those 4 breeds as vicious animals? Have you lost your mind?
It’s not the dog??? Have you lost your mind??? Of course it’s the dog. Have you seen the damage these dogs do when they do attack? I grant you this-pit bulls may, I repeat “may”, not be any more likely to attack than other breeds, but the damage they inflict when they do is horrific.
A friend of mine’s mother was attacked several years ago in Lanett, Alabama was attacked by a pit bull. It bit her throat out before bystanders could drag it off. She was d.o.a. at the hospital.
Don’t tell me “it’s not the dog”.
At least West Point authorities have the courage to regulate ownership of these worthless animals. Most municipalities and counties don’t, or won’t for political reasons.
In my experience, however, most of the people who keep these dogs couldn’t spell “vote”, much less figure out how to actually do it.
The owner of this dog should be incarcerated as long as the child has scars. Even if it’s a lifetime.
Thanks to Gen. Hood Mississippi’s constitution is being protected… Cities that are trying to supersede State law have received notice of their limitations.
He makes double that in a year with his base salary alone (public record). He deserves due process – just wish I had more faith in that process. He’ll probably cop a plea. Much more importantly I wish that girl the best in trying to move on with her life, after an obviously very difficult start. disgusted.
Could you provide the addresses for Mitchell Distributing and Lee Co Agri-Center? Also, will there be any public viewing of these wonderful horses in Columbus?
They both should be fired, period. They are not rookies and know proper procedure. Maybe a investigation from a out side source should be conducted .
Why a gun always have to be involved?!!
Glad to see Mr. South in the race, maybe he can bring something to the offices other than empty promises and no improvements. Maybe as a business man he can do something to bring some jobs to a district that surely needs them.
The biggest thing would be as a Republican he wouldn’t be under the coattail of Roger “The Doger” Bedford……can I get a amen to that !!!! One less lawyer in Montgomery.
Coach Moore is an AWESOME coach. I’m sure he will be missed at Mantachie. I’m so glad my son, Dustin Carrell, was able to play under the direction of Coach Moore!!!!
ACTUALLY HE WAS CHASED AND CAUGHT BY LOUISVILLE POLICE DEPT
This WAS the best EGG-BOWL ever. My father Mr. C.D. Shelton was a REAL bulldog fan. He passed away on November 12, 2013. Thanks Bulldogs and Coach Mullen for filling the void of my father’s passing by winning back the golden egg. He would have been proud as a peacock to see this.HAT’S OFF FOR A JOB WELL DONE!!! GO-STATE…GO-STATE!!!!!!!!! (Orson Shelton—MSU Alumnus 1990)
This WAS the best game ever. My father was a real “BULLDOG” fan. I only wish that HE could have watched this game, but he passed away on November 12, 2013. I am soooooo proud of the MSU BULLDOGS for filling the void of my father’s passing by winning this game. God Bless and Hats off for a JOB WELL DONE!!!! GO-STATE….GO-STATE!!!!!!!!!
that was my wife and kids house. i was staying there for a day or two.
I just love the grand cover up. The truth shall come out.
Wish Monroe county would arrest a certain elite group for same thing!
Monroe country has this happening for past 5 or more years! BUT because of 1 “name brand” teacher NOTHING was ever done!
I think that this family is the strongest family. God can do all things.
Seems we are stressing about the wrong things. Granted I do not live in Starkville and do not get a vote, but is this the biggest problem to concern the city? Is our spouse to be held accountable to the other’s profession? If so, I may be in deep trouble for what my husband does!
I really can’t believe he was killed. He was such a nice person.
I have never seen so many flags in a game. There were flags called for no reason at all and to make it worse the REFS threw them and didn’t know what they were thrown for. At one call it took them a least 10 min. to figure what they were going to do. Yes both sides had some bad calls. The REFS were not and are NOT qualified to call any game. Some of the REFS even got confronted by several Baldwyn’s players (I’m mean in their faces) and no flag was thrown. Seems to me and others that were not from Eupora but other school districts that the REFS were calling the game for Baldwyn. Hope that theres a investigation about this…
By the way shouldn’t the REFS be from other Districts when calling a Playoff game. Just wondering.
Baldwyn will be playing the WildCats of Cahoun City this Friday. Same REFS? If so, then The Bearcats will have to Face Bassfield or East Marion and you know who’s going to win that one!!!
Good job by the class of 1987. Would be nice if other Alumni would follow suit
Yea that sounds about right. But let someone get pulled over or whatever and their name and what they did is all in the police blotter. What a the difference! O wait I forgot he’s got a badge
send a resume to email@example.com. Thanks
I am interested in applying for a position with the company coming to Starkvile, Ms
Well I for 1 have kids of my own and I am so glad he is gone but he should’ve got the whole 40 years
Well here we go again!
Eagles are flying HIGH this Friday Night. Watch those receivers earn their yardage. I have the Eagles at 28 pts. before half time.
Baldwyn – 24
If this happened to us the consumer why is the state getting the money.
Sotomayor is a liberals liberal that should never have been appointed to the court. Obama done that as a way to get back at the country. Screw them again cause she will.
This country will never survive what this clown has/will do before he’s out of office. I too support capitol punishment for anyone convicted of murder, armed robbery, nidnapping, rape…..but I think we need to go back to publice hangings.
Obama the 2nd biggest joke on America……
My heart goes out to the whole family, I lost my Don three years ago and to loose one child and have to bury him was horrific for me, I can’t phathom the pain a mother goes through having to bury three. Please know my deepest prayers and thoughts will forevermore be with you!!
Just think what he could have done in a defense like Alabama’s, young man made the wrong choice and it will cost him millions in the draft and for years down the road.
The Ole Miss Black Bears are not a spring board to the NFL……sad but true, live and learn.
Columbus better be careful jumping on the anti gun bandwagon! We are in rural Mississippi not California. If they are worried about people carrying open they need to make the rule no open carry, not take rights away from us who have legally obtained a concealed carry permit. To say no guns will also take away the rights to carry of someone who even obtains an enhanced concealed carry. This is another gun grab from people (politicians) who do not understand the constitution and are scared of guns because they have been brain washed by the liberal media. It goes back to the same old issue: criminals will have guns because they do not obey the law and the legal citizens will not be able to protect themselves. Why is it that politicians can’t (won’t) see this? Maybe its not about real concern for the citizens but about power and control. Even though Columbus politicians will not directly benefit from this gun control they can be on the right political side and show liberals in the country that they can gun grab even here in Mississippi. This is another sign of the culture change in Columbus and how it is negatively going to impact the community. It is hard to imagine that a town the size of Columbus could become a ghost town of what it once was but you can just look at Detroit and see an example of what happens when liberal democrats run the tax paying demographics out and all they have left are welfare recipients, this is the kind of change that these laws indicate to be coming. Well one thing is for sure, Starkville will be ready to reap the benefit!
Really?? The only reason a Politician wants to make these places off limits are to be able to steal from the people with out recourse !!!
In all reality , I would rather go Conceal carry rather than non-concealed … I want the edge on the criminal . I carry open around my house. because I can see an intruder coming and its more comfortable .
But when the powers that be start stipulating when and where , its not a free people any more …
Why if I might ask, would any one who is a law abiding public servant be afraid of Law Abiding citizens carrying a weapon ????
Another thing, (machine gun or any fully automatic firearm) No one ever walks around with a machine gun or a fully automatic firearm !!! Hell I bet this town does not even have 3 maybe 4 people who own automatic firearms !! I am a collector of old Mil Surp firearms … and I only know one person who owns a automatic firearm !!! Thats one person and Im in my late 40s …that is one person in my whole life that actually owns an automatic firearm!! So why have that even mentioned ??? Oh Well , its just a baby step to take all our other rights away and mislead the people !!
What is crazy about this whole ordeal is the fact that this is NOT a new law as always reported. HB2 only clarified the fact Ms is and always has been a open carry state and defined concealed or partially concealed… However you are correct if this is allowed it is yet another step/move violating you constitutional rights… Better get together and let them hear your voices!
Jace is my young (3rd) cousin. This is an awesome thing that was done for him. He is very brave, and he deserves this gift. Thanks so much to all
Watch them Eupora’s receiver’s !!!!! They will be the one’s to catch
I’m expecting at least 40+ pts. alone – only from the receivers.
Go Eagles !!!!!
I think he should NOT run again. He has been in his seat too long just like the rest. Time to retire.
Congratulations Melissa, I don’t know you but glad they are hiring locally, this is a good sign.
So sad. Prayers for all the family and involved. May God send peace and comfort.
Well this is about the stupidest thing I have heard. Please don’t waist any money on sidewalks and daises on 45 and spend the money to help alleviate the traffic problems. Whoever is in charge of the traffic signals should just take a drive down 45 on Friday’s at lunch. Our “smart” lights are so stupid. Please get rid of that ridiculous light in front of Carl Hogan Honda!!!! Really… I’m sure the merchants and citizens would rather have an efficient traffic flow than a bunch of bike trails!
I am very interested in adoption. I have 1 child which is a girl and she is 19 which I had before I got married. I am married and my husband has no children of his own and we have been trying and it has not been sucessful. I will have been married 6 years on November 24, 2013.
This video is only 6 seconds long. I’m interested to see the rest of it.
Thank you for bringing this problem to our attention. We will try and get the video online as soon as possible.
ohhhhhhhh weeeeeee……put a shade on that…..some bright folks posting here!
My condolences goes out the the family and friends of these 2 young gentlemen that lost their lives. Both are from the St. Louis area which is my home town.
Glad to see more jobs coming into the area. Wher would apply for that particular branch or part of the Toyota division?
I know some info reply back to me
It’s ashamed that we cannot live in our own house without fear of the outside. You never know who’s watching from afar. Everyone that smiles in your face is not your friend, I feel sorry for the Gray family because life will never be the same again. They had a bright future ahead and was just living an ordinary life like everybody else.
Seems you have contrradicted yourself, this wasn’t something from afar but within the family. “They had a bright future ahead and was just living an ordinary life like everybody else”…..something wasn’t right for her own son to do the killing….or maybe that’s the way it is these days but not on my side of town.
He would not do anything like that and that my ex boyfriend so FREE BRO!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know he did not do it and that my exboyfriend st8 up he would not do anything like that so FREE BRO!!!!!!!!!!
I know devonte Kelly would not do anything like that mane st8 up!!!!!
I love the way Noxubee played Friday nite
This has got to be a “JOKE”, if not…..it’s a dang good reason why Cochran and Wicker need to be voted out……and fast!!!!!!
My heart goes out to the family because they are suffering a double loss. I pray that the truth comes out as to why he murdered his father. We don’t know what went on in the house.
I really hope that the truth comes out. For a child to kill his father, that indicates something was going on in that house. If someone knows something, they really need to come forth. My heart goes out to the family because they are suffering a double loss.
Is the transmitter down, again? I have not been able to see WCBI-TV over-the-air all evening.
To everyone who has something to say about this wreck i was the one driving the mountaineer i am 5 months preg and almost lost my first child because of this i am more careful driving than i’ve ever been and reporter got it wrong i was turning on to mike para not coming off the trooper was speeding without his warning lights on so if you weren’t there and don’t know the real story don’t say anything about it!
I can say this, many, many times I’ve seen MHP cars speeding on 45 north, had one just last Tuesday morning (during the fog) pass me on a hill with double lines. He didn’t have his blue lights on so it wasn’t an emergency.
It’s the same with all of them, they can’t obey the laws they are paid to enforce…..you can call the office in Starkville (and I have) but nothing is going to be done about it. They are above the law!
Apparently you aren’t that careful, you pulled across in front of the Trooper. It is called Failure to Yield Right of Way.
And then they wonder why the public has no respect for law enforcement. You see it everyday….people in cops uniforms that you know are sorry as all get out, but still they hire them. Then watch them, they don’t pay bills, they write bad checks, they cant up hold the laws they are paid to enforce……think I’m joking, watch the next time you see one on the highway….he can’t even obey the simple speed limit…..pass you on a double line.
One that I know for a fact, rent to one……your chance of getting your rent on time is about like winning the lottrey.
They should be held to a high standard but they are not…….
Ace you have got to be kidding. Heck they are both wrong. Selling drugs and robbery. I have absolutely no sympathy for this young man and I do not care what color he is. I would feel the same way no matter what

Dan Mullins has no control of his coaches nor players. What a joke of a coach and effort at South Carolina. Hey coach, retire a loser. Strength coach building muscle between the ears but no brains.
First off be mindful that the same “low life scrumbags” that you are referring to Tim still has family and loved ones. Weather he is sentenced to life, death, or released, that decision is not yours. If he is set free, I will be sure to be the one to pick him up and I dare you with all that is within me to attempt to do harm to him and we will be reading a report about how you spend the rest of your life in prison. Mike at the end of the day, he is still human. Brandon was not the one driving and police will admit that. They robbed a drug dealer. Now who is wrong in that situation? The doing the robbing or the person selling drugs? Like Caryn said, there has already been enough tragedy in this case so killing Brandon is not going to make things any better.

That’s the reason decent people can’t have a place to live, they don’t do anything to this garbage when they catch them. He’ll be out in three months and a cop again, selling dope!!! That’s all we have in Calhoun County, they don’t even bother catching each other.
My Husband and I; Have know Randy Kelly for quite sometime. We always called him R Kelly. And we know we speak for a lot of people, calling him R Kelly. That’s what he was known as by so many. There wasn’t one person that didn’t know him. He was always a blast to hangout with. And always kept everyone laughing. Always carried a smile on his face. He was a wonderful friend, and always willing to help a person in need. Kelly loved everyone family & friends. He was a wonderful father. He loved all his kids so very much. He will always & forever be missed. And never forgotten. His memories will live on now, always & forever. There is always, always, always something to be thankful for. We’re so thankful for knowing R Kelly. And having him in our lives. To his family!!! You all are in our hearts and prayer’s. To all his children; You all are in our prayers as well. Your daddy loved all of you so very much. R Kelly R.I.P our friend. You will be always & forever missed, But never forgotten.

I too have fond memories of The Canterbury Tales when I was in Mrs. Chandler’s English classes. She is the greatest English teacher I have had the pleasure of knowing!
And get shot be one of these idiots?
Surely you jest!
Superhero you might be but … I am not going to get shot for Walmart’s ipad.
If you have eye witness, why didn’t they tackle them and hold them until police arrived??

I still remember Chaucer and the canterbury tales and it has been almost 17 years since I sat in Mrs. Chandler’s class. She is an amazing teacher and woman. Having the joy of being taught by her is a true honor!!!
I knew them the son use too ride the bus with me when I was in tha 11th grade..Dont seem like the type too do anything like that
Ok, then slow those same troopers down on the highway when not running under Emergency lights. I have been passed on Hwy’s 6, 7, I55 doing the established speed limit and you would think these guys were after Public Enemy #1. They are supposed to comform to the same “Rules of the Road” that we do!.
Secret Government Agents spying on the citizens is never a good idea. Just ask the East Germans.
While I don’t believe you should text while driving, I don’t believe the MHP has the authority to write tickets for it. Has there been a law passed against it or are they just making up a charge to fine you with?
As with to much Government these days seems like they just do what they want regardless of the letter of the law. The MHP needs to enforce the law not make it up as they go.
TIM im sure if you were in an accident you would want them to travel at high rates of speed to save your life…right?!!? but if they block roads for others that are hurt (law enforcement or not) then its an inconvenience?? These guys risk their lives EVERYDAY for people like you who continuously complain about the things they do until they are needed. Show some respect please.
Not unnecessary at all – 5 people transported, car on fire with explosive materials in it. Did you read the article or just want to run your mouth about it? Doesn’t matter that there was a trooper involved. He was on 45 and the other car came off Mike Parra and caused the crash. End of story. Glad no one was hurt.
I read the article, and I passed by the accident. Coming out of Columbus, I was passed by 3 deputies/MHP that were driving at an extremely high rate of speed through town, even using the northbound lane to swerve around traffic. Coming up to the accident a few minutes later, I saw that there were already several LEOs at the scene and the road had already been cleared (apart from the myriad cop cars blocking the entire scene). While I do understand their concern for their brother-in-arms, it seems like they could have handled it in a safer manner.
FYi: D.J. Sanders was also selected to represent the North 4A-6A All-Star Basketball and Fastpitch team earlier this year!!! First player in New Hope High school history.
Anytime an officer is involved they have to investigate. The person that was hit is already on facebook bragging he will get a new truck out of this…never mind that he pulled out in front of the Trooper. Also…how dumb can you be to get on a social medium and gloat about it. I’d be interested to know if the on board camera in the Troopers car survived and will it show what happened. Contrary to what you think about the amount of personal that showed up, it was a dangerous accident with the Officer in the car and it was onfire. I’d rather have too many to help then not enough to save my life or my family. Our County Deputies and City Police do their best to get to an accident as fast as they can…doesn’t matter if it was MHP or Citizen involved.
If u would actually READ the article above there are
2 key words, vehicle fire and ammunition! Therefore
Those 20 officers I’m sure blocked 4 lanes of traffic
To PROTECT disrespectful people like u that only want
To criticize them for doing their job!
There were at least 20 cops and other emergency personnel blocking the entire 4-lane for non life threatening injuries. Seems like a waste of resources. I wonder how long it would have taken just 1 officer to show up if an MHP car hadn’t been involved.
I like Dan Mullins (and his wife) and hope he stays at MSU forever……Hail Yes!!!
My God what has this world come to, this is lower than low. These three need to serve some serious hard time and most of it should be cleaning/restoring cemeteries.
WOW…..can you beleive this?

I call on DPS to refund gun permit holders who were wrongly overcharged for permits. Attorney General Jim Hood has issued an opinion saying DPS did not have the authority to raise fees on gun permits.
My first thought when I learned of this bureaucratic cash grab was that the Obama Administration mindset had taken over the Department of Public Safety leadership.The commissioner’s action clearly violates state law, demonstrates a lack of leadership and makes it appear he wants to be in the gun control business. Mississippians are tired of government reaching deeper into their pockets to justify agency overspending. I expect the DPS Commissioner to follow the law immediately and offer refunds to law-abiding gun owners who have been overcharged for their right to carry a concealed weapon.
Cyndi, how much do you think MSU professors make? He probably doesn’t make that much in a year. What ever happened to ‘innocent until proven guilty’. Try a review of the Bill of Rights and due process. A hell prison for 7 years? How do you know that? He has a family and other children. Haven’t heard any accusations from any of them, have you? I’m sure you’ll make something up for that, too.
I sure hope it’s not true, but I don’t have any problem waiting to see what the outcome it FIRST.
Love seeing WCBI give credit to these ladies!
I just wanna say thank you so much for all your help with the vigil for our fallen officer.. We are working on fundraising things no.. I would love to give you the inside story of you would like to continue helping Webster country and eupora heal email me if you would like to do so.. Thanks again for all you have done
Yea there is still one more that needs to be put to death in this case and I sure hope he is. I personally don’t care to be feeding his low life self for the next 40 or more years!!!!!!!!!!
One of those ‘low life scumbags’ died at the scene and another one passed away last night. I’m sure the remaining survivor will spend the rest of his life behind bars. There’s already been enough loss of life resulting from this tragedy. Killing anyone else isn’t going to bring anyone back.
This is NOT 1950 anymore Tim. You just can’t go around hanging people anymore dummy.
I say the low life scumbags should get death penalty. If they don’t then when they hit the street then the public will take the law into their own hands. Doug Evans it’s up to you now!
Why can’t people just let other live their lives without hate.
It has nothing to do with hate, or should I say I don’t hate the person, I hate the sin….and it is a sin. The Bible teaches that and this country used to have some morals, but atheist, and I don’t like calling them gays…..they are what they are (but if I write they won’t print this) and I hate the country has let them come out……they are not cool, they are sick, discussing people. But will admit like Blister, the courts will allow this and it’s part of what’s killing this country.
Ed, I don’t think the bouncing of comments will change anything. We all have our views and thank heavens we are in a country where we can do that.
