Kemper is so irrational and unfair. How can it happen here? Is Mississippi just like Washington? Is everything political? Northside Sun readers are skeptical about Kemper. They know about Mississippi Power’s experimental...

I recently wrote about Mississippi's efforts to create jobs by backing new technology failures such as Kior which received a $75 million interest free loan from the state. It was supposed to...

Kior, a state-funded green energy project, recently announced the shutdown of its Columbus, Miss. plant. It was supposed to produce gasoline and diesel from pine trees. This is the sixth state-funded technology startup that has failed.

Dear Commissioner Renfroe:

Congratulations on your appointment to the Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) and thanks for your willingness to serve. This line comes to mind: All in the Valley of Death rode the six hundred.
