Lloyd Gray: 'Can do' can go a long way
OK, it's a bit corny. But give it its due: "Center of Positivity" - the new Tupelo promotional theme from the Convention and Visitors Bureau - captures an important community trait that has distinguished Tupelo through the years.

The consulting firm Cubic Creative in Tulsa OK, the culture from their website is quoting a atheist religion and applying it to be the Tupelo motto. Whoever hired the firm at CVB should be demoted and more community minded person put in charge.
Tupelo is anything but positive with the crime and elephant hunters still out there.

Tupelo is a federal entitlement whore of long standing. Any federal entitlement that can be pimped out by city departments is made a priority and even if a municipal need can be better served at a lower cost to the city's tax payers without the federal subsidy ,that alternative is ignored to pursue getting federal money to stuff in the pockets of local contractors who take care of their 'friends' at city hall.
Just look at the Airport Authority. Look at Main St lanes and parking, look at the ridiculous bike lane on Reese St, look at the graveled ditches through town. They are all scams to get federal money to spend on Tupelo's "bridges to no where."
Look around folks. Don't be hypocrites. Don't condemn the poor drawing entitlements if you condone the friends of city hall getting rich cashing in on Obama money.
