One of the places most of us visit early and life and for the rest of our lives — the library — is being honored this week as we celebrate National Library Week. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at all the local public library has to offer as well as memories of other libraries. (April 15, 2015, Page 4A)

    Spring rains affect lots of folks

    As the rain continues to fall around the area, we’re reminded of the old saying that “April showers bring May flowers.” If so, we’re going to have lots of pretty flowers this spring. The wet weather does cause problems for some, however, and hopefully they will be able to work and play around a forecast that says we’ll have more rain. (April 15, 2015, Page 4A)

          Who really gets all the breaks?

          Have you notices how traffic flow and traffic lights always seem to go against you. How people ignore the “15 items or less” signs in stores, how the dog always seems to chew up valuable items instead of junk? Editor Don Whitten agrees, to a point, but then notes that you just don’t notice as much when things go your way. (April 13, 2015, Page 4)

            More vacations coming this summer?

            Are “staycations” a thing of the past with the economy improving and gasoline prices dropping? We think you will see more visitors to the community as well as more of us leaving for trips out of town this summer as people return to their vacation mode. (April 13, 2015, Page 4)

                Double decker buses an Oxford tradition

                The double decker buses Oxford and its community members use for so many things are getting a little old and cranky, and it might be time to replace one of them. We think it would be a good idea for groups in the LOU community who need fundraising projects to consider raising money to help purchase the next double decker bus to keep the tradition going. (April 12, 2015, Page 4A)

                  Neighborhood Code will help protect charm, character of Oxford

                  We commend city leaders for being proactive with protecting what makes Oxford special by working to implement a Neighborhood Code that would address quality of life issues such as litter in yards, furniture on roofs, cars parked in yards, et cetera. (April 10, 2015, Page 4A)

                    A man’s home is his castle — until …

                    Local columnist T.J. Ray writes about the freedom one feels after paying off a car or, even more, your house, and then wonders how those in that situation feel when eminent domain or the ruling of a preservation committee all but tells them their home is not really theirs alone. (April 10, 2015, Page 4A)
