    Lots of local citizens ‘stepping up to the plate’

    Nearly two dozen have qualified to run for local and area positions this year through the first third of January, an increase over local elections four years ago. It’s good to see the involvement, and we thank those willing to run for public office. (January 11, 2015, Page 4A)

          Hall of Fame voters show what’s unacceptable

          Some cheating — gamesmanship might be a better description — is expected and tolerated in sports. Other forms of cheating are not, however. Editor Don Whitten points out that the voters for baseball’s Hall of Fame are making it clear what they find unacceptable. (January 8, 2015, Page 4)

            Growth, development still going strong

            Signs of progress and development continue to pop up in the county, city and university, and we see that as a sign that recovery is still moving forward.

              What cities are best, worst for singles?

              Singles looking for other singles may be in a good situation in our community, but one report shows that there are parts of the country where it’s much more difficult for singles to meet and date. Editor Don Whitten reveals some of the top and bottom spots around the country, according to a recent study. (January 7, 2015, Page 4A)

                Here’s hoping for compromise in industrial park project

                Differences in city and county codes and regulations could delay or end a project in the county’s industrial park, but we have confidence that city and county officials and leaders will do their best to settle the issues and help the project move forward. (January 7, 2015, Page 4A)

                  It’s time to remember: Drip, drip, drip

                  Temperatures in the next 24-36 hours are expected to be in the teens. The highs could well still be below freezing. What does that mean? It’s time to take care of people, pets and plants — and your water pipes. We urge you to be prepared and give some time-honored suggestions. (January 6, 2015, Page 4)

                    Sports trips about more than sports

                    Students from the local school systems are often part of trips related to extracurricular activities as well as those connected with academic classes. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at the OHS boys basketball team’s recent trip to Washington D.C. to show how valuable all of these out-of-the-classroom trips are for students. (January 5, 2015, Page 4)
