Tupelo has nothing to brag about. Perhaps it could figure out a way yo increase the average income above the national average then maybe people would look up to Tupelo.

Mr Gray and his staff keeps their subscribers well couponned and full of local color. It seems that's all they want though. That's such a shame. A good newspaper could bring the public's attention to problems before they are catastrophes. It would be so appropriate for the three monkeys to be at the top of the paper.

See no Evil- Hear no Evil-Speak no evil.......... until it's too late.

Awards are a cheap way to make people follow orders. You do not even have to pay fair wages.

The ailing Dr Dan Jones was blindsided by Aubrey Patterson. Most everything Patterson has ever been involved with has failed over time. Why replace the best chancellor UM has ever had? I suppose Patterson is doing what Dickie Scruggs and Archie wants him to do before he retires and disappears off the face of the earth in May of 2015. Higher learning will never be the same. Someone needs to blindside Aubrey but he has never played a team sport in his whole life. He plays one game and that is the Patterson getting what he wants game and trying to impress a few richer black bears who never attended college but are red necked ticket holders with sky boxes next to Aubrey's. Here's to you BLINDSIDE AUBREY .....GO HOME AND DISAPPEAR......Good Riddance..Know it all loser.

When corporations take your freedom it is nothing to brag about. More and more independent businesses are being shut down and the power freedom of speech squelched when they submit to a job with a corporation. For example clerks, coffee employees are not allowed to talk about race.

The whole scam is to get noticed as they are losing money. It is called free advertising. When you sell your time you are a slave. Better to sell your skills and have freedom.
Funny paper

Aubrey Patterson is on the local board that owns the daily paper. He is as long winded as a human being can be. He has made speeches so long that most of the attendees where going to pee for the second time while he stood up after dinner with the microphone in his hand. He is a weird bird who does what he is told. Dan Jones has done a great job and Patterson is the one needing fired. Aubrey will go away in May but we the Ole Miss loyal will be looking him up in the Groove game day and we know where his skybox is. He will pay a price for his greed if not now then later.

Old gray head devised this article knowing well that he was leaving the paper. What do you call this bragging? I call it a method of getting more going away gifts. Old Gray is given us the best gift of all gifts. He is going home to Meridian. I wonder how many articles he will send in for publication by the daily? The Tupelo daily likes to publish any article written by a has been. Oxford, Sherman, Meridian< Jackson......Whereever yo home is now. Just bragging is right...

Bragging has been the major effort of the EDITOR for more than 20 years. Create and its paper have played a major role in the white flight of families out of Tupelo. News articles mispresenting the facts CREATED an ill will with the working parents and the flight continues. the Downtowners are guilty of the same.
