Our view is that we exercise term limits on all office-holders when we cast our ballots. (April 21, 2015, Page 4)

          Which famous American woman would you honor?

          Very few women have been honored by being pictured on U.S. coins or bills, but there is a move now to changing that. Who should get a spot on, say, a new $10 or $20 bill? Editor Don Whitten looks at some possibilities and poll results. (April 20, 2015, Page 4)

                University valuable part of LOU community

                Sometimes we in the LOU community take for granted how much the U means to the L and O. A visit by a university professor and some of his students to a couple of classes at Oxford Elementary School last week show how much the two can benefit from one another. (April 19, 2015, Page 4A)

                    Let’s get every school a literacy coach, more assistants

                    It’s good news to hear from the Mississippi Department of Education that 78 literacy coaches have been added for schools around the state. It would be great news if we could hear that every elementary school had its needs met with these reading coaches as well as with helpful teacher assistants. (April 17, 2015, Page 4A)
