      Shopping for the hard-to-shop-for

      The question is to be expected about this time of the year: Have you come up with a list of things for people to get you for Christmas? It’s an easy question to answer when you’re talking about youngsters, but a bit more difficult when you get to older folks. Editor Don Whitten discusses the problems shopping for middle-aged males and others in the hard-to-shop-for category. (November 29, 2010, Page 4A)

        Showing our appreciation to those who help others

        Thanksgiving is a time when most of us reflect on, and appreciate all that we have without dwelling on what we don’t have. Staff Writer Alyssa Schnugg writes that perhaps we need to spend a bit more time thinking about others who aren’t as fortunate and consider helping those who help others. She suggests, in particular, considering helping the local Interfaith Compassion Ministry. (November 25, 2010, Page 4A)

            Reacting to ‘Thou shalt not Facebook’

            “Thou shalt not Facebook.” That’s the word a New Jersey pastor has given his congregation and, while it seems like a reasonable suggestion, it makes Editor Don Whitten remember other words of helpful advice that many seem to take as a challenge. Will curiosity get the best of folks? (November 22, 2010, Page 4A)

              How will lawmakers respond to Barbour’s budget?

                  Holiday shopping season continues to grow

                  Christmas shopping once was just a December occurrence, but then it moved up to begin on “Black Friday,” the day after Thanksgiving.

                    Local news tops priority list for stories

                    Some Oxford EAGLE readers aren’t happy when the paper has “too much” local news and not enough state and national news because The EAGLE is the only paper they subscribe to. Others are bothered because of the amount of Associated Press content because they buy The EAGLE to get local news. Editor Don Whitten tries to give a little insight into the daily decisions made by your community newspaper. (November 15, 2010, Page 4A)
