      $3 a gallon gas is better, but why not $2?

      It’s always good to see gasoline prices fall, but Editor Don Whitten wonders if we haven’t gotten too accustomed to higher prices if we think a drop to $3 is that good. He takes a look at the effect of high gas prices and wonders if we’ll ever see $2 a gallon fuel again. (October 3, 2011, Page 4A)

                Art show interference sets troubling precedent

                Oxford EAGLE News Editor Jonathan Scott expresses concern that Mayor Pat Patterson’s recent involvement in one particular artist’s show and its appropriateness to be displayed at The Powerhouse could be setting a precedent that seriously affects the growing local art community. Scott takes a closer look at the actions surrounding the “Scratch and Sniff” show, and suggests that the Arts Council ought to have more say than the mayor in what is displayed. (September 29, 2011, Page 4)

Editor Don Whitten’s not so sure, but he still examines the situation while taking a look at other “curses.” (September 28, 2011, Page 4)
