    Earmarks and communicating with lawmakers

      Local columnist Jimmy Reed hears lots from family and friends about his reluctance to join the 21st century, but relates a joke he heard recently that shows that not all who are “older” are as challenged as some think he is. (July 13, 2010, Page 4A)

        Summers seem to be getting shorter

        The countdown has gotten serious. No, not the countdown until the start of preseason football practice or the countdown to the first game this season, but rather the countdown to students returning to school. Editor Don Whitten points out that the summer break seemed to start just a few weeks ago, and now there are signs pointing toward school buses, shopping trips for new clothes and changing summer schedules for school mornings. (July 12, 2010, Page 4)

          E-readers popular, but still can’t top real books

          Everywhere you go, it seems like you see and hear about e-readers such as Nooks, Kindles, iPads and Kobos.

              Cable company leaves Lafayette County out in the cold

              Staff writer Alyssa Schnugg praises the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors for their recent emphatic “No” vote on giving the local cable company, MetroCast, a tax exemption.
