    Daily Journal MOORHEAD – Freshman quarterback Kwadra Griggs threw for a season-high 366 yards and four touchdowns to lead Itawamba Community College to a 52-48 win against Mississippi Delta on Saturday. Itawamba freshman tailback Richard McQuarley added to the offensive outburst by rushing for three scores. The Indians (4-4, 4-2 MACJC North) hold a half-game […]

    In little more than two weeks, Mississippians will decide who will represent them in the United States Senate for a new six-year term, choosing between six-term incumbent Republican Sen. Thad Cochran and former 1st District Congressman Travis Childers, the Democratic nominee. The contrast between this quiet general election contest and the acrimonious, high-decibel Republican primary […]

    Let’s step back a bit from normal prognostication in what has now supplanted the 1983 Mississippi gubernatorial campaign as the strangest political campaign in the state’s long and bewildering political history.

    Before this past week, which one of the following did you think was more likely to happen first? 1. Pigs fly. 2. Bigfoot is captured. 3. Elvis records comeback album. 4. Hell freezes over. 5. Mississippi State is ranked No. 1 in football. Well? Why are you pausing? My cousin, who is a huge Ole […]

    One of the wonders of this political moment is feminist contentment about the infantilization of women in the name of progressive politics. Government, encouraging academic administrations to micromanage campus sexual interactions, now assumes that, absent a script, women cannot cope. And the Democrats’ trope about the Republicans’ “war on women” clearly assumes that women are […]

The entire game was a defensive slugfest, but the first quarter stood out as the No. 3 Ole Miss Rebels and Tennessee Volunteers couldn’t do a thing, collectively, on offense […]

    By Melissa Meador Monroe Journal AMORY – Amory overcame a shaky, 9-4 loss in Game 2 to take its second round, Class 4A slow-pitch softball playoff series 2-1 against Houston on Saturday. “When you beat someone like that in the first game, it gets mentally tough, but this time of the year, you can’t do […]
