Our View

Variety is the spice of life

Two more candidates joined the race for the Republican Party’s presidential nominee for the 2016 election, and those two added a bit of diversity. We think it will be an interesting summer and fall as this mixed bag of GOP candidates try to gain a foothold inside their party and with non-committed voters. (May 5, 2015, Page 4)

    Parenting sometimes requires tough love

    Toya Graham has gotten a lot of publicity for pulling her teenage son out of a protest in Baltimore. We feel she deserves all of the credit she’s getting and hope that it shows tough love still has a place in parenting. (May 4, 2015, Page 4)

      Housing, like other issues, will require community effort

      There are housing issues in Oxford and Lafayette County, both with purchasing and renting, and it’s something that will take a concerted effort of our leaders, our citizens and ourselves to solve. (May 3, 2015, Page 4A)

            Change your lunch routine and change your life

            We agree with a suggestion from Blue Cross & Blue Shield that we should all take part in National Walk @ Lunch Day on Wednesday. We’re all aware of the value of regular exercise, and a walk during, or as part of, the lunch break sounds like something quite a few of us could try. (April 28, 2015, Page 4A)

              Thanks to all who made Double Decker special

              We’ve put another Double Decker Arts Festival in the books, the 20th one, in fact. We pass along thank you’s to all involved with the annual festival from the people at Visit Oxford to the volunteers to the vendor and on to the patrons. We look forward to even bigger and better things in 2016. (April 27, 2015, Page 4)

                  State officials still can’t settle Common Core

                  Republicans passed a bill to, supposedly, end Common Core once and for all. But the bill didn’t satisfy Gov. Phil Bryant because of some details added and some left out, and he vetoed the bill Thursday. We urge our lawmakers to settle this issue — keep Common Core and move on or drop it and get a replacement and move on. (April 24, 2015, Page 4A)

                    Let’s consider getting newer double decker buses

                    It’s no secret that Oxford’s imported, old-style English double decker buses are getting old, and it will be expensive to repair or replace them. We suggest considering keeping the ones we already for special occasions, and getting a newer double decker bus or two to replace them in regular use. (April 23, 2015, Page 4)
