President Obama

Pre-spring fun: dream real estate purchases

Got a few extra dollars – a few million – gathering dust? Looking for a real estate bargain? Editor Don Whitten takes a fun-filled look around the world of high-dollar, celebrity-oriented real estate as he prices a mobster’s home, Truman Capote’s spread and some private islands. What better way to spend a dreary late-winter, pre-spring day? (February 28, 2011, Page 4)

Dead animals, harvest of fishy and fowl claims

Dead birds and dead fish. Coincidence or incidental? That’s the question local columnist Deidra Jackson asks as she talks about a few ongoing stories with widespread coverage and widely varied explanations. Jackson urges us to seek the real truth and also to remember that we’re responsible for taking care of this Earth. (January 6, 2011, Page 4)

Letters to the Editor

Carolyn Ross writes to talk about exceptionalism in America and to urge people to “keep the Republic that the Founders gave us,” while Mack W. Fondren writes to ask why information about school plans was withheld before the recent vote on a bond referendum. (November 5, 2010, Page 4A)

Letter to the Editor

Jim Shollenberger writes to take issue with recent letters to the editor, and he calls for letter writers to use less emotion and more thought. (October 29, 2010, Page 4A)

So why was Bill Clinton in town Thursday?

Was former President Bill Clinton in Oxford on Thursday to stump for U.S. Rep. Travis Childers or was he just making another stop on a Get Out And Vote campaign nationwide? Or, as Editor Don Whitten writes, wasn’t it both – plus urging the Ole Miss students to get out and help the Democrats protect the gains that group helped them get two years ago? (October 15, 2010, Page 4A)

Jim Shollenberger writes to take issue with a recent letter to the editor, citing problems he has with facts, distortions and misrepresentations. (September 30, 2010, Page 4)

School not the only place for teaching, learning

President Barack Obama spoke about education earlier this week, suggesting holding teachers and students accountable and considering a longer school year. Those things, plus money, may help Johnny learn to read better, but probably not any more than things his parents, siblings and relatives could do at home. Editor Don Whitten calls on family members to do their part in the education process as well. (September 28, 2010, Page 4)

Letters to the Editor

Lena L. Ward writes to ask what she says appears to be the question of the day –  ”What’s race got to do with it?” – while wondering if people are worried more about President Obama’s success or their own personal well-being. (September 15, 2010, Page 4)
