Angie Floyd, 47, was arrested and charged with violation of the Social Hosting Law and her bond set at $6,000. Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson […]

Mississippi summers deserve their vicious reputation, but Mississippi winters can really be beautiful. No bugs, no poison ivy, the kids stay inside and there is not a lot going on as event organizers worry about a change in the weather. But if we could predict with accuracy the kind of weather we had this past […]
He was the Oktibbeha County Attorney and he was up to his neck fighting drug dealers, bootleggers and what some said were the remnants of the “Dixie Mafia.” We talked about the details of a recent arrest and this courageous attorney’s effort to clean up his county in the 1980s. I was a cub reporter […]
This is the first week to decide if you want to run for political office in Chickasaw County this summer. And I do hope those who are still pondering a race for public office will realize if you haven’t made up your mind by now, you will probably only slow things down as an elected […]
I’ve been around the newspaper business for about 44 of my 54 years, having started out in this profession throwing papers at the tender age of ten in West Point. Delivering newspapers every afternoon five days a week and then trying to collect for your services on weekends will teach you a lot about business […]
Everybody is for progress, but no one wants to change. That mindset is just as true in New York City and Washington D.C., as it is in Chickasaw County. Things in this world don’t change unless someone gets out of their comfort zone and goes about the hard work of making a difference in the […]
Sara put up the tree this past weekend. And it is artificial. As a Clay County country boy I grew up with live trees in my house. Momma’s house had 12-foot ceilings and some of those trees were monsters. The Blue House on the Ingram Plantation has 10-foot ceilings and a perfect corner in our […]
I have had the opportunity to live in several different communities and it is always neat to see how a neighborhood or town celebrates Christmas. The holidays are all about tradition and often locals don’t see those time-honored events for what they really mean to the community. Houston is no different. I repeatedly hear businesses, […]
Most of us will sit down to a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. Most of us do have so much to be thankful for. The holiday comes at the end of the harvest season. Spring and summer have been good and now is a time to reflect on that bounty as we face the cold gray […]
Deer season begins for me at the crack of dawn Saturday. My son James and I will be in the woods, quiet, appropriately dressed and armed. We have looked forward to this day since the last daylight hours of Jan. 17, 2013. Ingrams are hunters. And we make no apologies for what we are. I […]
I got to spend some times with some GI’s Friday. People often ask me if I was in the military. As the son of a career Air Force flight engineer, I am quick to tell them I was “in” the first 18-years of my life. The military is not for everyone. But it was great […]
Halloween is over and that means next stop is Thanksgiving. I noticed several churches in the area are doing a variety of food pantry/food drivers on the way to Nov. 25. Chickasaw County has some of the poorest people living in the poorest state in the nation. They need our help. Life is hard, but […]
I enjoy visiting with you like this. In this day and age of immediate electronic media and 24-hour news it’s still neat to sit down at a keyboard and talk with the people who read the Chickasaw Journal. I’ve always felt radio yaks, television blares and the internet will carry you many places you don’t […]
Remember back in January when we were enduring the coldest winter in a number of years and looking forward to the heat of Mississippi summer? I guess we all need to be careful of what we wish for. It’s hot! Having lived in a number of location and grown up as a son of the […]
