        ‘Joe’ — not the book, but pretty close

        Movie versions of books often leave a lot out and a lot to be desired. An exception, Assistant News Editor Jeff Eubanks writes after watching a special screening earlier this week, might be the film version of the late Larry Brown’s novel, “Joe.” (March 21, 2014, Page 4A)

            Mississippi Charter School Authorizer Board chairman Tommy Cardin released last week a list of 12 potential charter school programs that could be approved for the state under a law passed last year.

                First responders to a washout accident in Colorado last fall could be sued for their actions in a rescue, while it remains to be seen what will happen in the recent case in Florida where lifeguards and bystanders stopped a mother from driving herself and her kids into the ocean. Editor Don Whitten wonders how all of this will play out when it comes to the next accident — will people help or get helped because of the concern of lawsuits and criminal charges? (March 17, 2014, Page 4)

                  Increasing minimum wage a complex issue

                  Increasing the minimum wage will make life more livable for millions; everyone knows that. Increasing the minimum wage will cost jobs; everyone knows that.
