Four attend Lott Leadership Institute at Ole Miss
Columbia was well-represented at the prestigious Trent Lott Leadership Institute at Ole Miss this summer, sending four students.
Riley Grace Howell and Ladner Watts of Columbia Academy and Luke Miciello and Mamie Herring of Columbia High School attended the programs in Oxford.
A run-in this weekend with angry yellow jackets under a tree outside my house caused me to cascade rapidly through the three stages of post-sting grief:
1. How do I stop the pain and swelling?

The Columbia School District is exploring a grant to install solar panels at a school as part of the Kemper County power plant settlement.
Using the sun’s energy, the devices could potentially offset some of the district’s light bill.
Football tickets for Columbia High School games will remain at $7 this year, but the admission price for other sports in the city district will increase from $5 to $6.
But fans can get into all sporting events throughout the year with an all-sports pass for $100 for adults and $50 for students.
Kaizen is the Japanese concept roughly translated as “continuous improvement.” Sometimes called “The Toyota Way,” it’ s why the two Toyotas in my carport that have more than 200,000 miles still run better than a domestic automobile with half that many.
I have now done the unthinkable: I ordered a cheeseburger at Chick-fil-A. While eating (and enjoying) it, I kept my face to the door to make sure one of those cows that encourage us to “eat mor chikin” didn’t walk through with a score to settle.
