Columbus newspaper publisher Birney Imes Jr. once told me to put pretty girls and puppy dogs on the Front Page and watch papers sell. Well, your Chickasaw Journal has seven pretty young ladies and one grinning homecoming escort on the Front Page this week. Tayla Young was crowned Houston Homecoming Queen by 2015 Queen Madeline […]

We still have people call this newspaper the Houston Times Post. I don’t take offense even though we have been the Chickasaw Journal for over 10 years. When I hear someone call it the Times Post I know they have been reading a paper in Houston for more than 10 years and that’s good for […]
FLOYD INGRAM: It’s budget time I would love it at my house if just one time a year, Sara the boys and I sat down and hammered out a budget. We’d work on it for a month with each of my boys coming before Momma and me seeking funds for food, clothing, rent and of […]
As I have said before, football is not my favorite game to play or to cover. Football hurts as a player, they play outside in the cold and rain as a reporter. And football is a game of emotion. It’s the only sport where I’ve seen high school boys – no high school […]
By Floyd Ingram Chickasaw Journal HOUSTON – Imagine winning the Indianapolis 500, the Daytona 500 or even the Boston Marathon 15 years in a row. It just doesn’t happen in the competitive world of racing – except for a race team from Houston Mississippi. The […]

At my house we have a job-jar. It’s a jar filled with jobs Sara feels need tending to on the Ingram Plantation. We’ve had this system for the past 20-years. I wake up most Saturday mornings and pull out a job. When it’s finished I pull out another. The job-jar has never been empty. It’s […]
A long look at Chickasaw County shows we have several good things going on around here that we hope will bear much fruit in the coming year. The city’s effort to develop infrastructure, Tanglefoot Trail, rising sales taxes and falling unemployment are just a few of the headlines we saw last month. So let’s take […]
I have had the opportunity to live in several different communities and it is always neat to see how a neighborhood or town celebrates Christmas. The holidays are all about tradition and often locals don’t see those time-honored events for what they really mean to the community. Houston is no different. I repeatedly hear […]

My oldest son graduates from college this week and I am so proud. Every parent has dreams when they hold a newborn that they will grow up and graduate from college. I’ve got another boy who will graduate from Houston High School in two short years. I am so proud of James, too. But his […]
