Ole Miss fares well in affordability index

We’ve long known Ole Miss’ reputation for being a good value in education, and a recent affordability index places the school second in Mississippi, in the middle of the Southeastern Conference and in the top 250 in the nation. (April 1, 2015, Page 4A)

    Coach Smith shows players their importance to him

    Long-time coach Dean Smith left each of his players a check for $200 after he died to show them their importance to him. We hope to see those players remember to pay forward Coach Smith’s kindness. (March 31, 2015, Page 4)

      Distractions affect all drivers

      Research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic took a closer look at what causes accidents among teenage drivers. We think the same cause-and-effect report could be attributed to adult drivers as well, and we encourage adults to be a good example to the younger and would-be drivers riding with you. (March 30, 2015, Page 4)

        Legislative move to fix IHL system will continue

        State Sen. Gray Tollison’s concurrent resolutions that could lead to individual universities in Mississippi being governed by their own separate boards will not make it to the floor for debate this session, but Tollison and others will pick up the ball again next January and we encourage and support their ongoing efforts. (March 29, 2015, Page 4A)

          What we’ve learned during a busy week

          It has, indeed, been a week since the news first broke about the IHL board deciding to not extend University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones’ contract, What have we learned and, more importantly, what will we do with that information? We encourage a positive response and continued action. (March 27, 2015, Page 4A)

            Jones; supporters keeping at it, bills could weaken IHL

            The UM Faculty Senate and Ole Miss Alumni Association have come out in support of Chancellor Dan Jones, and Wednesday’s rally on campus shows the support continues to grow. Meanwhile, work in the Legislature could ultimately weaken the State Board of Trustees of Institutions of Higher Learning’s power to make similar decisions in the future. (March 26, 2015, Page 4)

              It’s time to turn out attention to our downtown sidewalks

              Everything, from out flower beds to our storefronts to our parking meters, is looking good downtown. Well, except for some sections of sidewalk. We feel now the city’s focus should turn downward, to those sidewalks around the Square. (March 25, 2015, Page 4)

                Support continues to grow for Jones

                A protest rally has been scheduled for Wednesday at noon on campus with students from across the state joining faculty and staff members and people from the community to show their support for Chancellor Dan Jones, whose contract was not renewed by the State College Board. It’s obvious the support for Jones is growing as many support his reinstatement. (March 24, 2015, Page 4)

                  Watch out for workers, other drivers in work zones

                  It’s Work Zone Awareness Week and we urge everyone to watch out for workers who are, basically, in their office, when you drive by. We also encourage drivers to watch out for one another since most work zone accidents involve two or more vehicles and not actually workers. (March 23, 2015, Page 4)

                    Spring weather a sight for sore eyes

                    For the first time in a long time, people are sitting on balconies around the Oxford Square, tending to flower beds and wearing shorts. Let’s hope the spring weather we’ve started to experience this week continues because, before we know it, we’ll be dealing with the dog days of summer. (March 19, 2015, Page 4)
