Let’s simplify the garbage can issue

There is a proposal to change the ordinance about when garbage cans must be removed from the curb after pickup, but we feel it’s still a step from being as simple as it should be. Our view is not to set a time limit on retrieving your trash cans, but rather to set a specific time — say, midnight on the day your trash is picked up. (October 29, 2014, Page 4A)

See: Life does move on after tough losses

The world didn’t end Saturday night with Ole Miss’s loss at LSU. The sun did shine Sunday. Our view is that Ole Miss football is important and exciting, but it has its place in life. (October 27, 2014, Page 4)

County building codes will work, but it must come from united effort

Old armory site has lots of potential

Already the look is different at the intersection of University Avenue and Bramlett Boulevard, and it’s going to change more now with the old National Guard Armory building coming down. Our View is that the city should work to make good use of the property to complement what’s nearby. (October 21, 2014, Page 4)

Lower gas prices mean more spending money

Editor Don Whitten takes a look at dropping gas prices — it’s below $3.00 per gallon locally and down in the $2.70s in nearby towns — and how the money not spent on gasoline might turn out to be the key to boosting the economy. (October 20, 2014, Page 4)

Meals on Wheels volunteers more than delivery people

We applaud all who take part in Meals on Wheels, and especially those volunteers who take much more than just food to recipients. Volunteers are often the only contact many homebound seniors have with the rest of the world, and Meals on Wheels provides them with a friend, a confidant and someone who will check on their safety and well-being. (October 12, 2014, Page 4A)

Abbeville Autumnfest a great example of local festivals

It’s October and time for fall festivals, and one of the longest-running ones in the area is the Autumnfest in Abbeville. We applaud the folks in Abbeville for annually hosting one of the area’s best festivals and encourage everyone to travel to northern Lafayette County on Saturday if you have the opportunity. (October 10, 2014, Page 4A)
