Our View

The local library — a summer destination

There are lots of places we plan to be during summer vacation — the beach, the mountains, the lake, golf courses, the yard, et cetera. One we encourage all to add to their list is the Lafayette County & Oxford Library, which offers a wide variety of summer programs for all ages. (May 28, 2015, Page 4)

    Growth helpful; we could be like LSU

    While we fret about infrastructure problems that come with a growing student population at the University of Mississippi, perhaps we should look on the other side of the coin. LSU, for example, is having problems with state funding and hasn’t been able to make up some of that difference with increased enrollment and has filed for something akin to bankruptcy. (May 27, 2015, Page 4)

      Lower fuel prices and a better economy?

      Do you remember when gasoline prices started dropping and neared the $2 a gallon mark. Everything appeared promising. Little happened and now we’re being told the economy isn’t recovering as we thought — and gas prices are inching back up. What’s happening? What do we do? The answers are difficult to come by, but we know we have to find them and answer the challenge or we’ll continue to be at the mercy of big oil companies and oil-producing nations. (May 26, 2015, Page 4)

          High school graduation — there’s nothing like it for everyone involved

          We congratulate the seniors from Regents School of Oxford, Water Valley High School and Lafayette High School who have already graduated and send the same wishes to Oxford youngsters who will be getting their diplomas this week. We also thank all of those who have worked to help these young ladies and gentleman attain this goal. (May 24, 2015, Page 4A)

            Jackson Avenue crosswalk idea needs another look

            We’re not convinced at all that a crosswalk across East Jackson Avenue near the ongoing Jackson Row project is a good idea for drivers or pedestrians traveling the busy Oxford street, and we urge city officials and leaders to revisit their approval of the plan. (May 22, 2015, Page 4A)

              We should wait for Vision 2037 report

              With the news that the Oxford Board of Alderman voted down a proposal from city planners to put a moratorium on some rezoning requests, we wonder about that decision’s ultimate effect on Vision 2037 planning and its relevance to planning the future of Oxford. We think we should listen to the people who do planning for a living, to the people we hired to help with that planning for the future. (May 21, 2015, Page 4A)

                Hearings offer chance to hear more on Measure 42

                We applaud the decision by Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann to schedule not five, but eight, public hearings across the state for citizens to learn more about Initiative Measure 42 and Alternative Measure 42A dealing with funding for public education in Mississippi, and we encourage everyone to try to make one of the meetings so you are aware of all the issues before you vote in November. (May 20, 2015, Page 4A)

                  Teamwork the key to controlling litter

                  The LOU community has so much to be proud of. Its litter problem, however, is something to be ashamed of. We call on all to to their part individually and collectively to clean up the trash and keep from dumping it on the roadways. (May 19, 2015, Page 4)

                    We need to learn from 20-20 views

                    Hindsight is 20-20. That’s why so many of our presidential hopefuls seem to now feel they can admit the Iraq War was a mistake years after most Americans came to the same conclusion. Now we hope these same leaders can think about another saying as they govern us: Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it (May 18, 2015, Page 4)
