Our View

Body cams for cops a win-win situation

The Oxford and University police departments already have body cameras in use. State Rep. Chuck Espy plans on introducing legislation next year that would help fund body cams around Mississippi. And President Barack Obama has called for $263 million to help law enforcement agencies around the country get body cams. We applaud all three and see equipping officers and those on patrol with body cams as good for the agencies and the public they serve. (December 17, 2014, Page 4A)

      LOU community offers lots of options to fill spare time

      The holidays may be in full swing locally, but that doesn’t mean that shopping or staying around the house are your only options. The LOU community offers a wide variety of options to see, hear and do during the upcoming days and weeks. (December 14, 2014, Page 4A)

        Missing out on federal funds hurts early education

        We urge educators and state officials to find out why Mississippi didn’t receive any federal grants for its pre-k programs and to be prepared to submit a winning application next year. (December 12, 2014, Page 4)

            Quicker use of boots sounds good

            Our view is that Mayor Pat Patterson is on target with a request to decrease the number of unpaid tickets a vehicle must receive before it’s booted in an attempt to collect parking fines. (December 10, 2014, Page 4A)

              Chargers may have lost, but they’re still winners

              We know Oxford High football players, coaches and fans are still hurting from Saturday night’s loss in the Class 5A state championship game, but we want to congratulate them on a job well done this season and over the past two years. They have represented themselves, their school and their community well, and we applaud them for that. (December 9, 2014, Page 4)

                  Pearl Harbor Day a time to thank all service men, women

                  It was 73 years ago that the Japanese pulled the U.S. into World War II with their bombing attack on Pearl Harbor. Our view is that we should use this day and many others to continue to thank all of our service men and women for protecting our freedoms in America. (December 7, 2014, Page 4A)

                    Let’s keep politics out of education

                    Common Core and its educational standards appear to be batted around like a beach ball between politicians and lawmakers in the coming months, and our view is that we need to leave politics out of education. (December 5, 2014, Page 4A)
