Are you up for a ride on the Tilt-A-Whirl?

Could a reunion be in the works for this weekend? (May 27, 2011, Page 4A)

      GOP hopefuls in the middle of ‘silly season’

      The term “silly season” is probably related more to sports than anything else, but it could certainly be applied to presidential races and potential candidates.

        911, 411, 811 not the only quick dial numbers

        Most of us have dialed 4-1-1 on our phones to get someone’s number. We’ve been taught to dial 9-1-1 in case of an emergency. And we’ve heard about how you should “call 8-1-1 before you dig.” Did you know, though, that there are other quick dial numbers. Editor Don Whitten shares what he’s learned about 211, 311, 511 and others. (May 23, 2011, Page 4)

            Where do you expect to be on Sunday?

            Have you heard about the prediction that the world will come to an end this Saturday and that some of us will be headed to heaven and the others left behind?

              Isn’t it too soon for another 100-year flood?

              We’ll never see a flood like the one in 1927. There will never be a hurricane like Camille again. You’d think we’d learn to never say “never” about weather and related disasters. Even talk about 100-year floods and such are hard to understand, so Editor Don Whitten takes a closer look at what a 100-year event really is. (May 18, 2011, Page 4)

                  Is it time for a new SEC baseball tourney format?

                  With the Southeastern Conference baseball tournament coming up in just a few weeks, Editor Don Whitten wonders if it isn’t time to consider changing the format for the eight-team tournament since most coaches and players don’t want to play the five or six games it usually takes to win the title because they’re already looking ahead to the NCAA tourney. (May 13, 2011, Page 4A)
