Colts or Saints – who are you pulling for?

The New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts meet in two weeks in Super Bowl XLIV. Who are you for? Archie’s son, Peyton? Or the “hometown” Saints who are making their first Super Bowl appearance? In the end, it’s not that hard of a choice. (January 27, 2010, Page 4)

    With the eyes of the world centered on Haiti because of the devastating earthquake there, perhaps it’s time for a quiz on the country we’re reading, hearing and seeing so much about. How well do you know Haiti? (January 25, 2010, Page 4)

      Would later Double Decker be any better?

      After earning a reprieve from having to compete with the Ole Miss spring football game, now Double Decker officials are hearing from some local businesses that they’d like to see the local festival, always held on the final weekend of April, moved to a summer date. Are their reasons good enough to dictate a change? (January 21, 2010, Page 4)

        What are we supposed to do in investing?

        In sorting through envelopes and packages entitled “Tax Information 2009,” Editor Don Whitten came across a report on his 401(k). He takes a look at how the past year or so affected his retirement funding and wondered if there’s a better way to battle the economic downturn. (January 20, 2010, Page 4)

          Four-day school week an option to consider

          Maybe it’s time to consider another option to help out with funding problems for school districts across Mississippi. How about going to school four days a week. Read more about how that would save money in gas, bus driver pay, maintenance, et cetera. (January 18, 2010, Page 4)

            Maybe a lottery could help higher education

            It’s possible that funding for education in Mississippi could be assisted by a statewide lottery – just not exactly the way many would think. (January 15, 2010, Page 4A)

              DeDe Fitts serves as an inspiration to many

              OPINION – Longtime friend and Oxonian DeDe Fitts died early this week after an extended battle with cancer.

                DeDe Fitts serves as an inspiration to many

                Our time on earth is precious and few of us seem to learn that without some suffering. DeDe Fitts, who passed away Monday after a battle with cancer, learned how to deal with bad news and inspired many with his positive approach. (January 13, 2010, Page 4)

                  Grove Bowl-Double Decker conflict arises

                  OPINION – Who would ever have imagined that the annual Red-Blue spring football game, known as the Grove Bowl, would be scheduled on the same Saturday as the popular Double Decker Arts Festival? It has happened this year, however, and local businesses and merchants will have one less “big weekend” in the spring. (January 11, 2010, Page 4)

                    Finding a resolution that can be kept

                    OPINION – It’s difficult for most of us to keep our New Year’s resolutions for any length of time. One this year that’s drawing special attention is redeeming all of those gift cards and certificates received as Christmas gifts. Proper planning and “hard” work will hopefully pay off. (January 8, 2010, Page 4A)
