      Candidates debate at Ole Miss

      During their first and only debate before the November election, the two north Mississippi congressional candidates agreed on a few issues, battled over several differences and both choked up when talking about the same educational accomplishment — being the first in their families to graduate from college.

      “I grew up in a family with modest means,” Democrat and Ole Miss alum U.S. Rep. Travis Childers said before his emotions forced him to pause for a brief moment. “I say this with love and respect for my family: I was the first to finish college.”

      State Sen. Alan Nunnelee, the Republican challenger, noted the two men shared something in common.

      The debate, moderated by Overby Fellow Curtis Wilkie, was held in the Overby Center at the University of Mississippi. It’s the only time the two candidates are scheduled to go head-to-head before the election. Seven independent or third-party candidates are also on the Nov. 2 ballot, but they were not invited to participate in the debate.

      The questions, asked by local newspaper editors and reporters, ranged from the economy, taxes, global warming, health care and Tuesday’s appeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t tell” military policy. (October 13, 2010, Page 1)

        Is it hotter now, or do we just need it cooler?

        Is it global warming or just getting accustomed to 72-75 degree machine-cooled air over the years that makes it so difficult to go outside or to places with the AC set on 78 or 80? Editor Don Whitten recalls days when air conditioners were not part of life and wonders if we’ve just hurt ourselves by getting too comfortable. (June 9, 2010, Page 4)
