    State officials still can’t settle Common Core

    Republicans passed a bill to, supposedly, end Common Core once and for all. But the bill didn’t satisfy Gov. Phil Bryant because of some details added and some left out, and he vetoed the bill Thursday. We urge our lawmakers to settle this issue — keep Common Core and move on or drop it and get a replacement and move on. (April 24, 2015, Page 4A)

          Let’s consider getting newer double decker buses

          It’s no secret that Oxford’s imported, old-style English double decker buses are getting old, and it will be expensive to repair or replace them. We suggest considering keeping the ones we already for special occasions, and getting a newer double decker bus or two to replace them in regular use. (April 23, 2015, Page 4)

              GOP race: Elimination sprints or marathon?

              It’s more than a year and a half away from the 2016 presidential election, and already the Republicans are hard at work trying to figure out how to settle on a candidate who will probably be taking on Hillary Clinton. Editor Don Whitten looks at ways to trim the large field, but wonders if GOP leaders will be able to manage that feat. (April 22, 2015, Page 4A)

                    Term limits or not?

                    There’s a chance Mississippians could vote for an initiative that would limit the number of consecutive terms someone could hold in a particular office; it would be the third time since 1995 that voters have had that opportunity. Our view is that we exercise term limits on all office-holders when we cast our ballots. (April 21, 2015, Page 4)
