Surprise Final Four leaves you wondering

So you’re all for tournaments deciding who’s the best team for a given season? And you really think some, or all, of this year’s Final Four deserves to be No. 1 in men’s college basketball for 2010-11? Editor Don Whitten takes a look at the surprising Final Four and makes a case that next Monday’s winner would more accurately be called the tournament champion rather than the No. 1 team for the season. (March 30, 2011, Page 4)

    Just how many days does March have?

    March has been a busy month with lots going on for everyone, but that still hasn’t made the month seem any shorter. Editor Don Whitten suspects that it’s the way the calendar falls this year that makes the month seem so long. (March 28, 2011, Page 4A)

      Giving – it’s something we’re good at

      If you’re lending someone a helping hand, then give yourself a hand. In a state and a community that’s known for supporting charitable causes, there are plenty of options. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at our giving spirit and some of the possibilities to get involved with this spring. (March 25, 2011, Page 4A)

        Legislators need to work this conflict out

        There’s a new “R” word being thrown around that has folks up in arms – “redistricting.” State legislators cannot agree on new district lines for the state House and Senate, and now it appears some members of the House will be joining a lawsuit that could involve the Senate. Editor Don Whitten notes that legislators need to work this one out – and soon – or voters will take care of the problem in one or two upcoming elections. (March 23, 2011, Page 4)

          Taking advantage of one of those breaks

          Empty parking spaces are the best sign around here that school’s out, and there have been plenty available around Oxford this week. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at spring break and how many folks are spending their time this week or how they might wrap up things this weekend. (March 17, 2011, Page 4)

            Wells takes us back in times with Faulkners, Oxford

            Oxford is known for being the home to Ole Miss, the home of many writers and the home of Nobel Prize winner William Faulkner. Dean Faulkner Wells, niece of William Faulkner, has written a book that takes a closer look at her uncle, the Faulkner family and the community here where she grew up and lives today, and Editor Don Whitten takes an inside look at Dean Wells and that book, “Every Day by the Sun,” which is being released this month. (March 16, 2011, Page 4)

              Glad to be living in the 21st century

              Sinus infections and colds are one thing; pneumonia is a completely different animal. Editor Don Whitten talks about dealing with the illness that, he points out, would have killed his grandparents and put his parents in the hospital. With modern medicine and the good health care we have in the 21st century, however, it can be dealt with. (March 14, 2011, Page 4)

                Three of this, three of that – lots of threes

                Remember the saying that “good things come in threes”? Start thinking about that just a bit and you can really see a list start to grow of things with three members, three parts, three words, et cetera. Editor Don Whitten makes out his list, from TV networks to musical groups to sports connections, and then wonders if readers might have a few more to add. (March 7, 2011, Page 4A)

                  Are we on the fast track to $4 gasoline?

                  Did you notice all the gas price jumps last weekend? Editor Don Whitten takes a look at the multiple hikes and how prices are comparing now to just a month ago and to a year ago. Is the trend heading toward $4 a gallon gasoline, something that hit lots of people hard in 2008? Will the reaction be the same? (March 2, 2011, Page 4)

                    Pre-spring fun: dream real estate purchases

                    Got a few extra dollars – a few million – gathering dust? Looking for a real estate bargain? Editor Don Whitten takes a fun-filled look around the world of high-dollar, celebrity-oriented real estate as he prices a mobster’s home, Truman Capote’s spread and some private islands. What better way to spend a dreary late-winter, pre-spring day? (February 28, 2011, Page 4)
