      The joy of children – even in restaurants

      Kids, as Art Linkletter showed us years ago with his TV show, do and say the darndest things. Editor Don Whitten relates his view of two families with young children during an evening meal recently at an area restaurant, and shows that we can still enjoy their actions and words just by paying attention. (October 25, 2010, Page 4A)

          Morning person? Or perhaps a night owl?

          Are you a morning person, one of those people that somehow gets up and going every morning without a hitch? Or perhaps a night owl, one who struggles through hitting the snooze button several times and still needs help and a shot of caffeine? Maybe, you’re somewhere in between. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at all three and wonders if heredity or environment decides which you’ll be. (October 18, 2010, Page 4A)

                So why was Bill Clinton in town Thursday?

                Was former President Bill Clinton in Oxford on Thursday to stump for U.S. Rep. Travis Childers or was he just making another stop on a Get Out And Vote campaign nationwide? Or, as Editor Don Whitten writes, wasn’t it both – plus urging the Ole Miss students to get out and help the Democrats protect the gains that group helped them get two years ago? (October 15, 2010, Page 4A)

                    Longer school year? Admirable but not feasible for all

                    Local columnist Deidra Jackson takes a closer look at a recent appeal by President Obama to consider a longer school year to help with education in the United States. Discussions with former teachers and a current administrator show some of the concerns that educators and parents would have with the well-intentioned recommendation. (October 14, 2010, Page 4)
