Our View

Clear message: Don’t let down your guard

Our View is that you must remain diligent as parents, adults, teachers, et cetera. Who would think about their teenage daughters or friends trying to fly halfway around the world to join terrorists with IS? Still, it happened. We cannot let down our guard in teaching, warning and watching our impressionable youngsters. (October 31, 2014, Page 4A)

      Let’s simplify the garbage can issue

      There is a proposal to change the ordinance about when garbage cans must be removed from the curb after pickup, but we feel it’s still a step from being as simple as it should be. Our view is not to set a time limit on retrieving your trash cans, but rather to set a specific time — say, midnight on the day your trash is picked up. (October 29, 2014, Page 4A)

            See: Life does move on after tough losses

            The world didn’t end Saturday night with Ole Miss’s loss at LSU. The sun did shine Sunday. Our view is that Ole Miss football is important and exciting, but it has its place in life. (October 27, 2014, Page 4)

              County building codes will work, but it must come from united effort

              The Lafayette County Supervisors will work to draw up building codes for the county, and Our View is that supervisors, citizens, builders and anyone else interested need to work together to get the regulations that will best serve Lafayette County. (October 26, 2014, Page 4A)

                Let’s keep working on unemployment

                The numbers may be confusing at times, but it appears things are getting slightly better when it comes to decreasing unemployment rates. Our View is that we all need to keep working together, and the numbers should take care of themselves. (October 24, 2014, Page 4A)

                  Winning, losing decides Top 25 spots

                  Football polls are not usually mentioned a lot on the Opinion page, but with Mississippi State and Ole Miss holding two of the three top spots it seems only fitting to respond to criticism about a bias among pollsters favoring the SEC. Our View is that you move up and down in the polls based on winning and losing, and that’s what will determine how many SEC teams remain in the top five over the next month. (October 23, 2014, Page 4A)
