Our View

Thanks to all who made Double Decker special

We’ve put another Double Decker Arts Festival in the books, the 20th one, in fact. We pass along thank you’s to all involved with the annual festival from the people at Visit Oxford to the volunteers to the vendor and on to the patrons. We look forward to even bigger and better things in 2016. (April 27, 2015, Page 4)

    Your voice, input crucial to Vision 2037

    Two more meetings are scheduled for this week to gather input for, and discuss, Vision 2037. We encourage all citizens to go to the meeting or go online and enter any thoughts you have about the future of our community. (April 26, 2015, Page 4A)

      State officials still can’t settle Common Core

      Republicans passed a bill to, supposedly, end Common Core once and for all. But the bill didn’t satisfy Gov. Phil Bryant because of some details added and some left out, and he vetoed the bill Thursday. We urge our lawmakers to settle this issue — keep Common Core and move on or drop it and get a replacement and move on. (April 24, 2015, Page 4A)

        Let’s consider getting newer double decker buses

        It’s no secret that Oxford’s imported, old-style English double decker buses are getting old, and it will be expensive to repair or replace them. We suggest considering keeping the ones we already for special occasions, and getting a newer double decker bus or two to replace them in regular use. (April 23, 2015, Page 4)

          Doing our part for sustainability

          Are you celebrating Green Week and Earth Day? Are you doing your part to help with preserving the environment? We encourage all to do whatever they can to keep the earth we have around for our kids and grandkids. (April 22, 2015, Page 4A)

            Term limits or not?

            There’s a chance Mississippians could vote for an initiative that would limit the number of consecutive terms someone could hold in a particular office; it would be the third time since 1995 that voters have had that opportunity. Our view is that we exercise term limits on all office-holders when we cast our ballots. (April 21, 2015, Page 4)

              Power, duties of IHL need changing

              The duties and powers of the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning are both simple and complex. However, with changing times, it appears that it’s time to re-evaluate some of those powers and duties and pass them along to the individual schools and universities. (April 20, 2015, Page 4)

                University valuable part of LOU community

                Sometimes we in the LOU community take for granted how much the U means to the L and O. A visit by a university professor and some of his students to a couple of classes at Oxford Elementary School last week show how much the two can benefit from one another. (April 19, 2015, Page 4A)

                  Let’s get every school a literacy coach, more assistants

                  It’s good news to hear from the Mississippi Department of Education that 78 literacy coaches have been added for schools around the state. It would be great news if we could hear that every elementary school had its needs met with these reading coaches as well as with helpful teacher assistants. (April 17, 2015, Page 4A)

                    Let’s get funding worked out for Activity Center

                    A proposed addition/expansion of the Oxford Activity Center may well be one of the most important projects the city has undertaken in a long time, and we call on city leaders and the community to make sure there is a diligent study made to find the funding for the most inclusive project possible. (April 16, 2015, Page 4)
