Voters get to know judicial candidates

During a two-hour political forum last night hosted by the TEA Party Oxford, judicial candidates  introduced themselves to voters, giving their pitches as to why they are the most qualified candidate and expressed views on a handful of topics.

The event started off with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance and was moderated by the honorable — and often witty — Circuit Court Judge James L. Roberts Jr. from Pontotoc.

“The public is often unconcerned about who holds a judgeship unless and until they get a case in court,” Roberts said at the beginning of the forum, held at the Oxford Conference Center. “Then they say, ‘How on Earth did you get to be a judge?’ Judges hold great power. Take time to learn about the candidates so you may case an informed vote.”

All nine candidates running for Chancery, Circuit Court and Court of Appeals positions attended the forum. While there are 11 candidates on the ballot for the November election, two races are unopposed. Only the contested race candidates were invited to take part in the forum. (October 12, 2010, Page 1)

The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a 30-minute session for the public to meet and talk to the candidates. The forum will begin at 7 with the moderator, Judge James L. Roberts Jr. from Pontotoc, asking each candidate five questions. (October 8, 2010, Page 3A)

Breast cancer support

The Reach for Recovery support group meets the first Monday of each month at Azalea Gardens. Most of the members, about 30, attend the meetings to socialize and receive education through written materials and guest speakers. About five members are “visitors,” who are trained and certified through the American Cancer Society to visit or call new cancer patients. Each meeting begins with a potluck supper. (March 5, 2010, Page 1A)
