Drive safely

Clarksdale does not have a problem with traffic, but it does have problem drivers.

Your Clarksdale Press Register routinely gets calls about accidents and close calls. Sometimes they are mad. Most of the time they just want other motorists to drive as politely and as carefully as they do.



Slow down

Our View

Classes began across Coahoma County and Clarksdale this week and if you drive a vehicle we expect you to slow down and be ever mindful that kids are back on the street.

Those big yellow school buses are painted that color for a reason and even a glimpse of that shade should shout caution to any responsible driver.


Did you vote?

By OUR VIEW,

Voter turnout in the Tuesday Aug. 6 Primary Election in Coahoma County concerns us.

Only 35.9-percent – 5,629 of the county’s 15,679 registered voters – went to the poll and cast a ballot.




Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I am writing about how officers of the law do not put road blocks out to check for driver’s licenses or to see if these drivers have insurance.

The costs of no insurance are passed on to the people that have insurance and cost that group more.



Your turn to speak

By FLOYD INGRAM CLARKSDALE PRESS REGISTER,

This week I counted up the number of inches of news stories and number of inches in advertising we have run in your Clarksdale Press Register since I got here in May.

It totaled more than 1,400 inches of detailed information in news and advertising about the men and women who will soon become the leaders of Coahoma County.


Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I had an interesting experience this morning. A city worker came by to pick up the campaign signs which I have placed in my front yard, at the request of Ms. Kim Seals, who was upset with my family for not allowing her to place one of her signs along with the others that were already there.




Our View: Shop local this summer

This is the start of the summer shopping season and the time of year when people shop for their home, high school graduate and spend a little extra money on a night out or weekend get-together.

And this is also the time of year when community-oriented newspapers urge you to shop at home.
