    Let’s say no to powdered alcohol

    The news that alcohol in powdered form could be on sale as early as next spring is not good news because of all the potential problems it could bring, and our view is that our lawmakers need to ban its sale before it ever begins. (December 19, 2014, Page 4)

      Let’s hope 114th is a ‘do-something’ Congress

      It’s our view that the 113th Congress earned its low approval ratings and our hope that the 114th Congress that convenes in January bucks that tradition and starts working together for the good of the country as a whole. (December 18, 2014, Page 4)

        Body cams for cops a win-win situation

        The Oxford and University police departments already have body cameras in use. State Rep. Chuck Espy plans on introducing legislation next year that would help fund body cams around Mississippi. And President Barack Obama has called for $263 million to help law enforcement agencies around the country get body cams. We applaud all three and see equipping officers and those on patrol with body cams as good for the agencies and the public they serve. (December 17, 2014, Page 4A)

          The excitement behind the current Ole Miss football team and program is spilling over into the construction business as Ole Miss officials announced expansion plans for Vaught-Hemingway Stadium Monday. Our view is this is a win-win situation for the Rebel football program and the LOU community which benefits from big crowds at home games. (December 16, 2014, Page 4)

            Lawmakers face active, involved constituency

            We predict interesting conversations coming up between state lawmakers and their constituents — particularly school officials, educators and parents of school-aged children — as they prepare to deal with two key education issues: fully funding MAEP and Common Core. (December 15, 2014, Page 4)

              LOU community offers lots of options to fill spare time

              The holidays may be in full swing locally, but that doesn’t mean that shopping or staying around the house are your only options. The LOU community offers a wide variety of options to see, hear and do during the upcoming days and weeks. (December 14, 2014, Page 4A)

                Missing out on federal funds hurts early education

                We urge educators and state officials to find out why Mississippi didn’t receive any federal grants for its pre-k programs and to be prepared to submit a winning application next year. (December 12, 2014, Page 4)

                    Quicker use of boots sounds good

                    Our view is that Mayor Pat Patterson is on target with a request to decrease the number of unpaid tickets a vehicle must receive before it’s booted in an attempt to collect parking fines. (December 10, 2014, Page 4A)
