Northside loses a seat under new district lines

NORTH JACKSON residents will likely lose a seat in the Mississippi House of Representatives, but one Northside lawmaker won’t admit it.

Lawmakers recently approved new Senate and House district lines, based on information in the 2010 Census. If the lines are upheld by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), one North Jackson lawmaker would be drawn out of the district he has been elected to represent for four terms.

Homeowners at odds over Madison's overlay district

THE CITY OF MADISON and the North Livingston Place Neighborhood Association are at odds over new zoning regulations in the area.

Last week city officials put an overlay on the land, comprising 175 acres along North Livingston Road just south of Highway 463, to give residents relief from new square-footage requirements in areas annexed by the city in 2008.

But neighborhood association president Johnnie McDonald said one provision of the overlay is too restrictive on landowners planning to subdivide their property.

Nanny State is alive and well

Admittedly many of the current laws regulating personal choices serve a good purpose and, as a general rule, are worth supporting.

Wearing seatbelts, for example, has been shown to save lives. So does wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle.

Smoking restrictions in public places certainly benefit non-smokers who are thus protected from the harmful effects of other people’s deadly habits.

The question, though, is how far government should go in protecting us from ourselves when our own bad behavior doesn’t necessarily harm others.

It's not easy to give away your heart

The music reaches a crescendo, the wedding dress is fluffed one last time, the doors swing open and the eyes of our awaiting friends and family are turned to us in eager anticipation. The rays from the setting sun shine straight through the Star of David and the cross in the stained glass window behind us further radiating this beautiful bride. There are a thousand things I still want to tell this precious little girl holding tightly to my arm. Tears trump words. Emotions are too high for English expressions.

Cancer can't defeat the soul

Sunday, June 3, was a big day in my life. I was the guest speaker at the 10th anniversary of the Hederman Cancer Clinic at Baptist Hospital.

There were several hundred people who were invited to attend the 10th year celebration of the Hederman Cancer Clinic. It was just 10 years ago that former President Bush and First Lady Barbara were here to dedicate the Hederman Clinic and truly put the Baptist Hospital on the map.

U.S. manufacturing becomes competitive with China again

the economic story of our generation has been greatly affected by the rise of China as a great industrial power.

With more than a billion educated people desperate for work, China has devastated American manufacturing. For the first time, the latest American generation is not as well off as their parents.

Globalism, powered by transportation and communication advances, has brought prosperity to much of the world. Unfortunately, it has come at the expense of America, which no longer enjoys the economic domination of the past.
