          Strict party-line voting usually leaves something to be desired

          When lawmakers, at any level, vote strictly according to the party line, it makes us wonder if they’re interested in what’s best for everyone. We were disappointed to see that earlier this week in Jackson, and call on both parties to have productive debates and compromise more often. (January 16, 2015, Page 4)

                Mississippi representatives and senators passed a resolution that will place an alternative to Initiative 42 — that requires the Legislature to fully fund MAEP annually — on the ballot this fall. We have two concerns about the votes: that is was along party lines and that men representing Lafayette County and its education-oriented electorate would vote to muddy the water on an education funding issue. (January 15, 2015, Page 4A)

                  Ole Miss lost another football legend Tuesday morning with the passing of Doug Cunningham, 69, of Jackson. Arrangements are incomplete.

He also lettered in track at Ole Miss as a member of 440-yard relay unit in 1965. (January 14, 2015, Page 6)
