    Don’t be messing around with my astrological sign

    How many of you know your astrological sign? Do you know the traits and characteristics for people with that sign, and do they fit you? Now, after hearing that there’s another zodiac sign and period, Editor Don Whitten wonders if he’s really a Leo or now a Cancer? (February 7, 2011, Page 4A)

          Oxford refrain

          Sometimes we need an outsider, a visitor to our community, to remind us how special it is. Loran Smith, who’s held a number of positions at the University of Georgia during a career thats earned him a spot in the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame, gives us one of those reminders in a guest column he wrote after another delightful visit recently. (February 4, 2011, Page 4A)

            You may have some explaining to do

            Have you ever typed in your name on your favorite Internet search engine? What did the results look like? How many of you are out there? Local columnist Deidra Jackson discovers that she’s a 42-year-old white female in prison or a top-scoring guard in college or a new bride – all at the same time. She takes a closer look at the possibilities and warns that you might well consider eliminating some of the content associated with your name. (February 3, 2011, Page 4)

              With nonpartisan – no party affiliation – voting, recent races have been settled easily and simply. Editor Don Whitten points to these races and what’s ahead with primaries this summer as proof that we should consider wide-open elections, particularly when it involves local offices. (February 2, 2011, Page 4)

                  By Jove

                  Are women always right? Are they impossible to please? Local columnist Jimmy Reed looks at several thoughts on those questions and offers an argument put forth by one of his students that seemed to even make females in the class side with him. (February 1, 2011, Page 4)

                    Another proposal from left field – Amendment 28

                    Local columnist T.J. Ray suggests that we propose and pass a 28th amendment that would make the president a non-partisan executive after he or she is elected, taking the split that parties and their differences have caused in our country. After all, Ray says, doesn’t the president represent everyone? (February 1, 2011, Page 4)
