With all this being said, here is what I would like to reach out and say to each and every person in the City of New Albany, and resident of […]

Dear Editor: Now that the Democrats and the Progressives and the liberals and the “politically correct” and much of the Republican establishment have their just denouement in the 2016 election, it is time to rein in our terrible state government, under Gov. Phil Bryant. What a bunch of “misfits” and “bullies”! The Lt. Governor and […]
Dear Editor, I read with interest the report on the Board of Alderman meeting published in the November 9th paper. The residents of Eastview Street ask for and received approval for speed tables in their neighborhood. I noted that some of the alderman were concerned about a “snowballing effect.” That seems to suggest that speeding […]

Letter to the editor: Monday, Sept. 19, a terrible accident resulting in a loss of life happened in the early morning of this day. My prayers to the family and all those who are grieving – life for this family will never be the dame nor the truck driver involved. The “Daily Journal” and the […]
Dear Editor, With access to 24-hour news, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with troubling events. But I’d like to share a personal story that reminded me there is good all around us. We simply need to open our eyes. On Saturday, Oct. 1, when leaving a Tupelo restaurant, I discovered my car battery was dead. […]
Is it really fair to declare the Mississippi Adequate Education Program (MAEP) a failure when it has truly only been funded a single time in 20 years? The next year, student achievement jumped. One single, successful test and MAEP is now labeled a failure by the leadership, which now declares it s time to revise […]
Letter to the editor: Look out your window, each morning, before departing. Look under and in your car. Buy a handgun; learn how to use it. Like the Boy Scouts: Be Prepared. For our state and country are going “to hell in a handbasket” and no one is looking out for the folks. The “politically […]
My congratulations on publishing the finest magazine I’ve picked up in years! I am Beth Barrett Rogers. My Mom, Erline Barrett, was the “Mayor of Main Street” from 1961 when she bought and renamed Barrett’s Grocery until her death in 2001. My late father-in-law Mike Rogers was head of the Development Association and recruited Futorian […]
