The high school football season seems to have flown by.
It's hard to realize that there is only one regular season game left for some of the schools in our area and two remaining for others.
With all of the games that have been played so far, there are two on the schedule this week that have serious implications.
When Dan Mullen looks at what Denico Autry and Kaleb Eulls have done this season, he is impressed.
The Mississippi State head coach sees something that maybe the fans don't see when he looks at his defensive lineman.
An estimated seven-mile long funeral procession traveled down Highway 82 west of Eupora Sunday as a tribute in mass to a Eupora police officer killed last week in the line of duty.
Police, fire and ambulance units, from cities and counties in all over Mississippi and beyond, led the impressive procession to a Choctaw County cemetery where 52-year-old Keith Crenshaw was laid to rest.
Mississippi State University student Tammie Thrasher has little trouble pinpointing a key reason not to cheat on tests. All she had to do was put the shoe on the other foot.
âYou wouldnât want your doctor to cheat through college and then do brain surgery on you,â Thrasher said. âItâs important for you to earn your degree honestly.â
Voters will head to the polls Nov. 5 to select the next Oktibbeha County Prosecutor.
Tuesdayâs election will be a special election held to select a successor for longtime-county prosecutor Roy Carpenter. Carpenter resigned from the position in June.

Although the title isnât well-known, the Starkville Community Theatreâs newest show, âA Catered Affairâ is a story many can relate to. The musical tells the story of a girl from the Bronx trying to plan a small wedding while others have differing opinions.
There is a good bit of mutual respect between coaches Dan Mullen and Steve Spurrier.
South Carolina's Spurrier praised the Mississippi State head coach Sunday on his weekly teleconference.Â
Mullen returned the favor during his Monday press conference.
The subject of Mississippi State baseball remains very popular.
Even before the Bulldogs made their historic run to the NCAA College World Series championship finals last season, the sport was a hot topic with fans and supporters.
It was the focus once again on Monday when MSU athletic director Scott Stricklin spoke to the Starkville Rotary Club at the Starkville Country Club.
Alex Ross may not be the most talkative member of the Starkville High cross country team, but that does not stop him from being one of its biggest leaders.
âHe is a good leader,â Yellowjackets coach Caroline Woomer said. âHe does it quietly. He doesnât ask for the position, but he does it well.â
Phillip Courtney Windham, 61 of Starkville, was taken by our Lord on October 23, 2013.Â
