    Getting close to not-so-favorite things

    Editor Don Whitten admits it – he’s not a big fan of most of our bugs and worms and such. However, in the interest of education, he writes, he’s helping with a school project that involves two well-known varieties – silkworms and pray mantises. (August 27, 2012, Page 4A)

      Not the first rape discussion and not the last

      Staff Writer Melanie Addington writes about the shock and outrage so many are feeling about the recent comments about rape made by Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin, and hopes that his misinformation will lead others to learn the real facts and take issues into their own hands. (August 24, 2012, Page 4A)

          Two-party system not shining these days

          Statesmen, authors and others have warned, through the years, of the problems our country’s two-party political system could cause.

              Take a look before following Bush’s ideas

              Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush recently urged Mississippi to follow the lead of his state in making changes in the education of children.

                Patience – a key for local drivers these days

                Local drivers know which roads to take, where the shortcuts are and the usual speed you can drive. Newcomers and those who’ve lived here just a short time are still learning. That’s why, Editor Don Whitten writes, those of us familiar with our streets and roads need to exercise a bit of patience while others are learning and adjusting to what we already know. (August 15, 2012, Page 4)
