    ‘Eggs and Issues’ event popular, informative; how about more?

    Monday’s “Eggs and Issue” breakfast with local legislators drew a capacity crowd at the Oxford Conference Center, and we thank our lawmakers for coming to update their constituents about what’s going on in Jackson early in the 2015 session.

              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)
