    Tuesday voting very important

    We urge all registered voters — whether you voted three weeks ago or not — to go to your polling site and cast your ballot on Tuesday. The two positions being settled locally Tuesday are very important in our community and area. (November 24, 2014, Page 4)

        Kudos to the Oxford and Lafayette County school districts

        Lafayette High hosts a Veterans Day program and Oxford was the site of a U.S. Naturalization Ceremony, and we applaud the schools and all involved with this manner of teaching our children about government, service, honor and citizenship. (November 20, 2014, Page 4A)

          Fire rating drop great news for some county residents

          We congratulate those residents in the county’s central fire district who will benefit — financially as well as safety-wise — by the improved fire rating for an extended area, and we applaud all those who helped make the extension of the district possible. (November 19, 2014, Page 4A)

            Giving is good, and you get to choose

            There are some who hesitate when giving to charitable programs which benefit people in other areas rather than locally. Our view is it’s good to give to any who are in need, and it’s your choice about whom you choose. (November 18, 2014, Page 4)

              OHS paper sets standard for others

              It was exciting to see the Oxford High School student newspaper, The Charger, earn the prestigious Pacemaker Award for journalistic excellence. We applaud the students, the advisors, the school, the administration and the community for creating the opportunity for local high school students to put out such a quality product. (November 17, 2014, Page 4)

                Not all issues limited to just our community

                Oxford is not the only city dealing with questions about smartphone-based ride sharing and its effect on taxi cab business. Our View takes a look at the issue in Philadelphia, Pa., and expects to see some form of compromise down the road. (November 16, 2014, Page 4A)

                  Making Highway 30 intersection safer a positive move

                  Those who travel Highway 30 coming to, and going from, Oxford may have come upon an accident at the intersection with county roads 215 and 217 about a mile east of town. Moves by the Mississippi Department of Transportation, including adding turning lanes, appear to be helping make the intersection safer for all who travel those roads. (November 14, 2014, Page 4A)

                    Preparation key for early winter weather

                    It’s much cold much earlier than normal, and that means we have to be prepared sooner this year for the effects and issues that come with freezing temperatures. Everyone is urged to look after those who need extra help — the elderly, the young, pets and some plants — as an extended cold front moves through the area. (November 13, 2014, Page 4A)
