This legislative day the Panola Partnership is hosting sure seems a waste of tax payer money. I sure would like to not take a day off and still get paid to eat a FREE lunch, shoot skeet FREE, and eat a FREE dinner at the country club. If the partnership is paying for this all then there goes the tax money we all pay to the city and county that they in turn GIVE to the partnership every year. So I could be wrong but the partnership should publish an article explaining were the funds come from to put on this event for the politicians that are telling tax payers that we all need to tighten our belt in these tough times."click this link below about our partnership and chamber of commerces throught the state and you will find some intersting information though, i doubt it will be allowed to be on the comments"msbusiness.com/editorsnotebook/2011/12/01/snake-oil-salesmen-make-a-killing-in-the-name-of-economic-development/
God bless our teachers,soldiers, and children
Editor's Note: Cost of the Panola County Legislative Day is borne by business and industrial sponsors, members and ticket sales for the dinner event. Many of these sponsors have been supporting an event such as this for almost 40 years.
Wednesday 0800 CST (8/22/12) and only a couple of articles have been posted with 8/21/12 dates. When is the requirement for the Panolian to post articles online? This website has been operating at least since 2009 so in my opinion articles should be posted the same morning as they are sold in print.
Online subscribers should have received e-editions late in the evening 8/20/12
Why is the website now just open to subscribers? You put news on there that has not made the print version yet, however, only subsribers can view it.
In the past, there was a lot of dicourse in the comments section.....now, who knows? I can't view it.
Well frustrated, we tried to contact you, but you gave an incorrect email address which is one of the requirements of posting. If you had given us a correct email address you would have received this:
Sorry, we are just trying to pay the bills. It makes it difficult to sell
the cow to those to whom you are giving milk.
I hope you understand.
Thanks for reading.
THIS IS MY 4 TIME ASKING ABOUT THE BIRTH ANNOCEMENT LIST FROM 1999 AND 2000 FROM DEC. AND IT WAS NEVER ADDED TO THE WEBSITE NOT ONLY THAT I EVEN CALL AND WAS PUT ON HOLD FOR A HOUR AND FIFTHY MINUTES NOT ONLY THAT THEY LIE ABOUT ADDING SO I FEEL LIKE THEY DNT CARE AND SOMEBODY IN THAT OFFICE NOT DOING THERE JOB
Web Master's note: We will be happy to give you a refund. Oops! I failed to find your name on the subscription list. I'm so sorry. But you are welcome to go by the Batesville Public Library or the Chancery Clerk's Office in the Courthouse and look in the bound volumes of newspapers from the years 1999 to 2000 and find the names for yourself. You may also want to try the State Department of Archives and History. They may be able to help you.
There is no coverage of the football team on the online version. Why? I will ask that question prior to indicating my views of what happened.
editor's note: Detailed football information may be found in the online subscription version.
I was very disappointed when I saw today’s edition of The Panolian. I made a special stop this morning to make sure I got a newspaper, so excited to see which picture was chosen to put on the front page! Would it be a picture of Dennis Darby with his supporters cheering all around him? A picture of him hugging his wife or daughter?? Even a shot of his campaign picture in that suit and red tie…what did I see this morning? A small 1” head shot of Mr. Darby and a HUGE picture of Griffin/Phelps/Crowell supporters standing outside the Courtland precinct holding signs on election day! Now, last year's Nov. 26th edition of the Panolian was quite a different story! It celebrated Griffin's win with a large picture of Mr. Griffin surrounded by his cheering supporters - as it should have. It captured such a celebratory moment. Well, there was a celebration at nearly 5:00 am Wednesday morning when the unofficial count was announced that Darby had narrowly defeated Griffin as well, and there was a Panolian photographer at the courthouse all night/morning...where's that picture? I know it seems like such a small thing, but it sure would have been nice for all the readers of The Panolian to see the raw emotion of Mr. Darby's victory just as they got to see Mr. Griffin's last year...
Editor's note—Damned when we do and damned when we don't. There will be plenty of opportunities to have a HUGE picture of Mr. Darby on the front page. Although we take thousands of pictures each year, we don't get what everybody wants every time. Most of our photographers are freelancers and submit the photos to us they think are their best and editors take those and make a decision on which to publish. Sorry we disappointed you.
This is in response to a letter to the editor titled "Urging Merging: be considerate, Y'all"
I INSIST on responding to THIS because this is my biggest pet peeve. Cars on Hwy. 6 DO NOT NEED TO MOVE OVER for cars coming FROM the interstate because they weren't taught what a red and white traffic sign means. They're already driving over the exit speed by the time they approach THEIR yield sign!
Maybe this official information will help.
Layman's terms: (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices)-Federal Highway Administration
Section 2B.08 YIELD Sign (R1-2)
The YIELD (R1-2) sign shall be a downward-pointing equilateral triangle with
a wide red border and the legend YIELD in red on a white background.
The YIELD sign assigns right-of-way to traffic on certain APPROACHES to an intersection.
Vehicles "controlled" by a YIELD sign(for example: exiting the Interstate APPROACHING Hwy. 6 or Hwy. 35 N.) "need to slow down or stop" when necessary to avoid
interfering with conflicting traffic.
(Editor's note: While you may be 100 % correct, the exit ramps at I-55 at Highway 6 were designed probably in the 1950s, and opened in 1963 when driving habits and norms were much different than today. Some of today's drivers don't know what to do at a 4-way stop, much less what the MUTCD says.)
Growing up in Batesville before it became a bustling city, it was common knowledge that the dead was highly respected irregardless of the ethnicity. However, as many stories and movies portray, the outcome of a situation is depended upon what side of the tracks in which one lived. This seems to be true when it comes to our African-American citizens at Batesville cemetery.
Batesville cemetery is located within the city limits and is divided by a fence denoting one side for whites and the other one for blacks. The right side is well manicured while the african american side has fallen trees and grass so tall that it covers one shoes. This is appaling as the dead for so many years were so respected and their final resting place should never be an eyesore.
Let's appeal to the powers makers of this fine city to see that equality exist for all citizens buried beneath the Batesville soil.
Editor's note: Batesville Magnolia Cemetery is not operated by the City of Batesville.
