Gazette is finally at home downtown

By Lisa Bryant General Manager The Gazette has gone through quite a bit of changes this year. We sold the building on Carter Avenue in the spring of this year, but did not have a permanent location to move into. We rented a temporary location on Hwy. 30 West across from the hospital. That was […]

The Playhouse

By Camille Anding It’s time – time for all the turkeys to look for camo or hide out in the woods.  Month eleven is here! It’s time to add an extra mile to our walking routine or a few more minutes of cardio workouts in preparation for the “body stuffings” only days away.  The cream […]

No rigged election here

There’s been a lot of talk lately about “rigged” elections. Perhaps it’s possible, but we don’t think it can happen here. Although we use electronic voting machines, they are not connected to the internet and some hacker could only affect their results by connecting directly to them. There also used to be jokes about the […]

A divided country cannot thrive

What has happened to our country? Civility, tolerance and any sense of cooperation seem to have vanished from our congressional body, and even to a degree in our state government.

Bankhead St. in the former Hamilton Hardware building, now a part of Hamilton Place, next to Cooper Park. The move away from Carter Avenue, where the newspaper had been for 40 years […]

Communicating with families

By Lisa Bryant General Manager How many times have you wanted to talk to your child, but said, I might as well text him or her? What happened to talking to each other? What has happened is no one wants to take the time to actually talk. We want to tell someone what we need […]

Letter to the editor: MAEP School Funding Formula – Change is coming

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 […]

The Playhouse

By Camille Anding He’s the baby and our baby which makes him very special. James, or James Wesley – which I like to call him, didn’t pick his birth order. He had no choice about being the caboose and “baby brother.” It was not his idea to always be Patton’s puppy dog led around by […]
