Memorial Day

Veterans give us the freedom we enjoy every day

Our View thanks all veterans for their service to this country and urges everyone to thank a veteran today for all they’ve given to us. (November 11, 2014, Page 4)

Take time now to learn about your past

Did your father or grandfather serve the country in the military? How did your parents meet? What is your family background? Staff Writer Alyssa Schnugg warns that most of us are going to end up not knowing full answers to those questions if we don’t take the time now to learn about our past. (May 24, 2013, Page 4A)

Thank a veteran this weekend

Veterans Day is Sunday and it’s time to seek out the veterans in your family, your neighborhood, your church, et cetera, Editor Don Whitten writes, to thank them for their service to our country and for giving us the rights we enjoy today. (November 9, 2012, Page 4A)

Oh, Fraptious Day!

Sturm Und Drang

Americans are now experiencing tremendous storm and stress – or Sturm und Drang, as the Germans call it. Local columnist Jimmy Reed writes about the challenges we’ve faced through the years, and notes that we should use the upcoming Memorial Day holiday to honor those who gave on battlefields – but also those who fought and won economic and natural wars on the home front. (May 24, 2011, Page 4)

Enjoying when life slows down just a bit

Have you noticed the shorter lines – at stores, restaurants, four-way stops, et cetera these last few days. It’s that special time of the year when the University of Mississippi population drops for a couple of weeks and yet the local school children are still in class. It’s not something we’d want permanently, Editor Don Whitten writes, but it is a time to enjoy. (May 12, 2010, Page 4)
