      Polar vortex – now that’s a cool name

      With hurricanes, typhoons and major storms all getting names these days, Editor Don Whitten writes that he thought “polar vortex” was the name of the latest storm that rolled through much of the country. He then learned it’s not a name of a storm, but the name of a weather phenomenon. (January 10, 2014, Page 4A)

            Photojournalism loses one of its superstars

            When Associated Press photographer Dave Martin collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack on the Georgia Dome sideslines just after the end of the Texas A&M-Duke game earlier this week, photojournalism lost not only one of its best photographers but also one of the most helpful and best-liked guys in the business.

              Hotwheels vs. iPads

              New Oxford EAGLE Staff Writer Jerra Scott was a bit surprised at some of the goodies wrapped up for youngsters for Christmas this year, and wonders if we aren’t taking some of the fun out of growing up for the little ones by giving them cellphones and iPads instead of Legos and Hotwheels. (January 2, 2014, Page 4)

                  Dog’s treatment deserves special ‘treat’

                  Assistant News Editor Jeff Eubanks writes about how pets – dogs and cats – have grown on him through the years, and how that makes him even more upset at the treatment of Sunny, a dog recently turned into the local animal shelter. Eubanks’ punishment for whoever abused Sunny would really be special, he adds. (December 27, 2013, Page 4A)

                    Tank – a special guy who will be missed

                    Death rarely, if ever, has any rhyme or reason, Editor Don Whitten writes, and certainly makes the present and the future difficult to deal with. It’s the past that begins the healing, he writes, as he remembers Lafayette County’s Alan Arrington, who died earlier this week from injuries in an auto accident. (December 26, 2013, Page 4)
