Tank – a special guy who will be missed

Death rarely, if ever, has any rhyme or reason, Editor Don Whitten writes, and certainly makes the present and the future difficult to deal with. It’s the past that begins the healing, he writes, as he remembers Lafayette County’s Alan Arrington, who died earlier this week from injuries in an auto accident. (December 26, 2013, Page 4)

Cancer Center a blessing for the community

Editor Don Whitten writes about the history of the Oxford Cancer Center, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week. He looks into how it was created and gives details of his personal involvement with the center and how it helps so many in the community. (August 10, 2012, Page 4A)

Presbyterians get quick start with local church

Churches, like people and families, have their beginnings, and several churches have, or will be, celebrating notable birthdays. One local church that will be turning 175 next year is First Presbyterian Church, and Editor Don Whitten gives a personal perspective on the church complex and family located just west of the Square as it begins a year-long celebration. (July 15, 2011, Page 4A)

Special people, places produce treasured memories

Funerals, closings and retirements. All spark memories of people, places and events, as they did for Editor Don Whitten this week. Whitten takes a journey back down memory lane while thinking about Quay Hudson, the Downtown Grill and David Wells. (April 15, 2011, Page 4A)

Helping worthy causes good for you, everyone

Editor Don Whitten notes how much cancer affects nearly everyone by pointing to his personal dealings with the disease, and then he urges people to get involved with helping their personal causes and concerns as he did last weekend by taking part in a fundraising car wash at Bramlett Elementary School. (April 14, 2010, Page 4A)
