Mississippi

Letters to the Editor

We’re No. 2 – and we wish we weren’t

Gasoline consumption down? Fuel prices rising? More costly in Mississippi? What’s the real story on gasoline and diesel fuel prices and how much it means to people.

We’ll still be paying – just at a different level

Editor Don Whitten suggests a new political-oriented phrase for the times of today: “Politics sends trickle-down taxes to the locals.” He notes that it seems more and more like the taxes and fees are being passed down the line where they still have to be paid if we’re to receive services and benefits. (December 8, 2010, Page 4)

Local news tops priority list for stories

Some Oxford EAGLE readers aren’t happy when the paper has “too much” local news and not enough state and national news because The EAGLE is the only paper they subscribe to. Others are bothered because of the amount of Associated Press content because they buy The EAGLE to get local news. Editor Don Whitten tries to give a little insight into the daily decisions made by your community newspaper. (November 15, 2010, Page 4A)

Hard work behind the scenes pays off

A lot of work was done behind the scenes over the last few months on “Project Duke,” which helped bring Olin Corp.’s Winchester Centerfire Operations and 1,000 jobs to Oxford and Lafayette County. Editor Jonathan Scott takes a look at some of the players in the relocation and expansion project who helped make it happen. (November 10, 2010, Page 4)

Surprising Series gets underway tonight

Phillies and Yankees, no doubt. That was the consensus for most of the season, but now we have a surprising matchup in the World Series: San Francisco and Texas. Assistant News Editor Jeff Eubanks takes a look at the 2010 season and how the Giants and Rangers made it to the Fall Classic. (October 27, 2010, Page 4)

Letters to the Editor

Peter Kondos writes to give his take on why so many voters plan on voting for change in the Nov. 2 midterm elections, while Gloria Pettus writes to call for a No vote on the local bond issue to keep from increasing taxes. (October 21, 2010, Page 4)

Open meetings, easy access better for reporters, public

Staff writer Alyssa Schnugg has been in the reporting business for several years, including many in Florida before she moved to Oxford. She recalls the openess of meetings and records and the easy access she had in the “sunshine” state, and writes that if Mississippi could be more like that overall then reporters and the public alike would benefit. (September 2, 2010, Page 4)

Letters to the Editor

David King writes to urge people to give democracy and Democrats a chance, saying that it’s going to take time to get the change people voted for two years ago. (September 2, 2010, Page 4)

Let’s remember all affected by Katrina

Hurricane Katrina hit land – on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi – five years ago Sunday. Editor Don Whitten mentions all of the programs and specials marking the fifth anniversary of the deadly and destructive hurricane, but wonders why it seems like there is usually more mention of New Orleans than of the effect on Mississippi. (August 30, 2010, Page 4A)
