            Do we really need term limit legislation?

            Term limits – good or bad? They’re good if you like keeping folks in elected office that do a good job. They’re bad if you believe fresh blood and fresh ideas are needed. Editor Don Whitten notes that term limits can be set without legislation – by voters going to the ballot box and limiting terms of those they want out of office but yet leaving in those they want to keep. (October 22, 2010, Page 4A)

              Supporting a tradition of educational excellence

              With schools in the area, state, region and country reporting problems, there’s no question that the local Oxford School District is on the opposite end of the spectrum. Editor Jonathan Scott talks about how well the school has done in relation to his children who have gone through the system, and he urges all to help continue that tradition of educational excellence by supporting the $30 million bond issue next Tuesday. (October 21, 2010, Page 4)
