Long-running program stimulates economy

So how did you like the latest government-sponsored and goverment-run stimulus? You know – the midterm elections. Editor Don Whitten writes about how elections help various parts of the community and economy and wonders, tongue-in-cheek, if year-round elections might be a good idea. (November 5, 2010, Page 4A)

      Maybe I’m a dreamer, but at least I show up

      Staff Writer Melanie Addington takes on non-voters and those who don’t attend meetings that will affect their community and way of life just a few days after midterm elections. She urges residents to take part in the entire process and to let elected and appointed officials know how they feel about issues. (November 4, 2010, Page 4)

        Letters to the Editor

              Conroy’s latest work gives valuable insight

              It’s been said that you can get a quick fix on someone by seeing what he or she reads. Editor Don Whitten points out that’s not always easy to do, but is with one of the South’s favorite authors, Pat Conroy, whose latest book, “My Reading Life,” takes readers on a trip through his library and education to see how and why Conroy writes as he does. Conroy will be in town Wednesday to sign copies of the new book at 5 p.m. at Off Square Books. (November 2, 2010, Page 4)

                School plans – great; timing – not so good

                Timing is important, sometimes even more important than you’d think. The timing in last week’s announcement by Oxford School District officials about their $54 million long-range capital improvement plans may have come a bit too close to the recent passage of a $30 million bond issue. Editor Don Whitten wonders if waiting, two months – or even two weeks – might have been better. (November 1, 2010, Page 4A)

                    Communicating in today’s world

                    The Internet and other technological advances do make communicating a little easier these day, but local columnist T.J. Ray notes that it still doesn’t help us when it comes to knowing how to communicate that we are not in harmony with the actions others take. (October 28, 2010, Page 4)
