STARKVILLE, Miss.--Abraham Lincoln will be at Mississippi State today for a number of university-organized public programs.
Of course, the actual 16th U.S. chief executive who was assassinated in 1865 will be unable to make it, but his transcendent spirit should be well represented at a two-day special event.
Absentee voting for the Oktibbeha County prosecutor special election begins today.
The special election will be held on Nov. 5 to elect a county prosecutor after longtime prosecutor Roy Carpenter resigned in June.
Haley Brown, Brace Knox and Matt Wilson are running in Novemberâ€™s election.

George Evans remembers when he and Ruth Morgan were children, back in the 1940s.
He said he had started shining shoes in his fatherâ€™s parlor at the age of eight, and Morganâ€™s father was a frequent customer of the parlor. He also remembers Morgan sitting on her fatherâ€™s knee. He said it was not the only memory they shared.
