The Republican gubernatorial runoff on Tuesday has two candidates with distinctly different — if not polar opposite — policy views exposed since the field narrowed. Bill Waller’s platform is so similar to Democrat Hood's manifesto we should call it Wallerhood.
  • EDITORIAL/Lynn Fitch is Jim Hood 2.0
    Other than missing the first bond payment in state history, State Treasurer Lynn Fitch mostly coasted through office neither hot nor cold, neither meek nor bold.
  • Friday, President Donald Trump met in New Jersey with his national security advisers and envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who is negotiating with the Taliban to bring about peace, and a U.S. withdrawal from America’s longest war.
  • Beto O’Rourke has taken the measure of America and found it wanting. 
  • I have set the Lord always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. 
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 3:17
    The Apostle Paul gives us in this verse the ruling mandate of the Christian life: “Whatever you do in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus.”  If someone asked you to explain what a Christian is in one sentence, you could say, “Someone who loves the Lord Jesus as he is offered in the gospel.”
  • Ten weeks of protests, some huge, a few violent, culminated Monday with a shutdown of the Hong Kong airport.
  • President Donald Trump’s immigration agenda has always been considered exclusionary and prejudiced by progressives; now they consider it tainted by mass murder.
  • A guessing contest was run at the Neshoba County Fair by the Arcadian Nitrate Co. A huge flag was showed, made of cotton seed. Contestants were required to guess the number of seeds. The winners are: (1) R.P. Howie, Neshoba, 600 lbs. of American Nitrate, (2) Mrs. Geo W. Smith, Philadelphia, 300 lbs, and (3) G.A. Spivey, Philadelphia, 100 lbs.
  • For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
  • GETING THE MESSAGE/Colossians 3:16
    We know from Scripture that the difference between superficial faith and sincere faith is a matter of life and death. The approbation of the good is not the same as love of it. So how do we judge our own sincerity? It is connected to our regard for, and our love of God’s word.
