The Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors is seeking at least one last round of public input before adopting a comprehensive plan.
As little as two years ago, the property to the east of Buffalo Wild Wings bore a pile of rubble, the remnants of an old movie theater.

The trial of Dennis Thompson, a Starkville man accused of murder and three counts of aggravated assault, will begin at 10 a.m. today in the Oktibbeha County Courthouse Annex on Main Street.

The 1974 Starkville Academy football team may not have had one single player move on to a higher level of competition.
There was one characteristic that was a key to the success for the Volunteers and led them to the state championship that season in the mind of former player George Ramsey and that was teamwork.
When your nickname is the "Bowling Ball," you better know your (running) lanes. See how the Bulldogs' Josh Robinson ran all over Kentucky including scoring two touchdowns.
