Medicaid expansion – an investment worth making

Mississippi is, for a number of reasons, the unhealthiest state in the union. And with that condition, there’s poverty and the effect it has on paying for health care.

Primary election set for Tuesday

Two ward seats will be decided in Tuesday’s primary election with only Democrat candidates running in wards 4 and 5. The democratic candidate for mayor will also be decided. The primary election will be held at the Oxford Conference Center this year. For years, it’s been held at the Oxford Activity Center but city officials moved the election to the OCC to better accommodate larger crowds and in anticipation of tennis court construction. Voting begins at 7 a.m. and polls will close at 7 p.m. (May 6, 2013, Page 1A)
