        ‘Experience’ degrees just another scam

        A master’s or PhD in just a few weeks? Based on “life experiences.” That’s what Editor Don Whitten was offered a chance at in a recent e-mail message. He looked into degrees by mail and found that it’s a very lucrative business that’s worth little or nothing more than to make the purchaser feel good. (August 23, 2010, Page 4A)

            Thrill-ride incident leaves you wondering

            With more news coming out about a 12-year-old girl’s free-fall from an amusement park thrill ride in Wisconsin earlier this summer, Editor Don Whitten wonders why so many people choose to strap themselves in for such dangerous-looking rides, much less allow their youngsters to get on or in the ride. (August 20, 2010, Page 4A)

              Letters to the Editor

              Curt Kennedy writes to suggest that the mascot for Ole Miss athletic teams be a horse named Rebel. He points out the positive qualities of the animal and notes that it could be a back-to-the-future type thing since a horse was on the field for a UM football game some 37 years ago. (August 20, 2010, Page 4A)

                Welcoming the arrival of a new year

                News Editor Jonathan Scott wishes everyone a Happy New Year, and then proceeds to explain that many of us look at August and the start of school as the beginning of the year more so than January. He points out the changes locally at this time as students return to town for classes at Ole Miss and writes that we all need to be ready for the start of a new year. (August 19, 2010, Page 4)

                  Always look to practice the Golden Rule

                  A couple of recent phone calls reminded Editor Don Whitten about the Golden Rule – Do unto others as you would have them do unto you – and how we all probably need to use it a bit more to help our neighbors and possibly set the stage to get a little assistance ourselves down the road. (August 18, 2010, Page 4)
