          It’s “our view” that the community and the Oxford School District are fortunate to have youth author Jay Asher visit OHS as part of a nationwide anti-bullying campaign, and we commend all who played a part in bringing the program to the district. (October 14, 2014, Page 4)

            Local columnist T.J. Ray takes a look at “The Seven Deadly Sins” — lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride — and notices they are all still problems, even though we may call them by different names these days. (October 13, 2014, Page 4)

              Education funding hinges on ballot box

              Thousands and thousands of Mississippians have signed petitions to place a referendum on the ballot in 2015 that would require complete funding of MAEP. That’s the first step; now we have to see how many people will go to the polls and vote for something that might raise their taxes or cut other services they want, too. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at the issue which serves a good purpose — the education of our children — but promises to bring more discussion before it’s all said and done. (October 12, 2014, Page 4A)

                Meals on Wheels volunteers more than delivery people

                We applaud all who take part in Meals on Wheels, and especially those volunteers who take much more than just food to recipients. Volunteers are often the only contact many homebound seniors have with the rest of the world, and Meals on Wheels provides them with a friend, a confidant and someone who will check on their safety and well-being. (October 12, 2014, Page 4A)

                  Maybe it’s time we check our priorities

                  Staff Writer Alyssa Schnugg writes about the extremely successful fundraising effort that will pay off the fine Ole Miss received for its fans storming the field after the win over Alabama and also pay for the goal posts and other repairs needed, wondering how great it would be if we could get an outpouring of donations like that for local charities that help the truly needy. (October 10, 2014, Page 4A)

                    Abbeville Autumnfest a great example of local festivals

                    It’s October and time for fall festivals, and one of the longest-running ones in the area is the Autumnfest in Abbeville. We applaud the folks in Abbeville for annually hosting one of the area’s best festivals and encourage everyone to travel to northern Lafayette County on Saturday if you have the opportunity. (October 10, 2014, Page 4A)
