It’s time to step up and be counted

News Editor Jonathan Scott has filled out – and mailed back – his 2010 Census form and he notes only one change from the census’ sloan of “Take 10.” He’d say “Take Nine” since it didn’t take him but nine minutes. Scott tells us the importance of returning the forms and gives us a look at how well we’re doing locally. (April 1, 2010, Page 4)

    Tourney decides title, but what about No. 1?

    A lot of NCAA men’s tourney brackets have Duke in the Final Four. Ditto for West Virginia. But Butler and Michigan State? A tournament is a tournament, however, and strange things happen.

      What’s the best way to use a refund check?

      The average refund check from the IRS is $2,500. The average person doesn’t get that, however, and Editor Don Whitten wonders what one is supposed to do when a year comes along where your refund is more than normal. He looks into all kinds of suggestions, from investing to pay off debt to splurging. (March 29, 2010, Page 4A)

        Book offers another way to experience the blues

        Think the “blues” can only be experienced through songs and music?

            Festivals, carnivals, conferences everywhere

            Members of the Lafayette-Oxford-University community know all about hosting weekend and week-long events that attract visitors.

              Lots happens during Spring Break vacation

              Taking off a week for Spring Break isn’t anything new in an education-oriented community. Neither is having lots to catch up on when you return, as Editor Don Whitten found out after spending a week out of town. He discusses things that went on during the previous week, including deaths, weather, sports and local business. (March 22, 2010, Page 4)

                What are they teaching our children?

                Sometimes rules are meant to be broken, and Constance McMillen and the American Civil Liberties Union are teaching us all just that.
                The American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Oxford on behalf of 18-year-old McMillen after the Itawamba County School District said it wouldn’t host her April 2 prom in response to her request to be allowed to bring a female as her date and to wear a tuxedo.

                  It’s time to fill out those Census forms

                  Editor Don Whitten takes a look at a sample form of the U.S. Census for 2010 that will be arriving in your mailbox any day now. It’s the short, simple form that ads have promoted, and Whitten suggests filling out the important form as a family. (March 15, 2010, Page 4)

                    Building a Web site that we’ll use, too

                    Senior Staff Writer Lucy Shultze, in conjunction with Web designer John Herren, has been one of the driving forces behind the EAGLE’s new Web site, and even she’s been a bit surprised at how much she is using the features of the new site even after reading most of the paper while at work. (March 12, 2010, Page 4A)
