Putting a price on peace

It’s not so difficult to understand some of the price increases and economic reports we see. But what about something more abstract? How do you determine, say, the cost of peace? News Editor Jonathan Scott takes a look at putting a price on peace by studying some recent numbers in the United States Peace Index that show how all 50 states rank in peace and prosperity. (April 21, 2011, Page 4)

Open communication: A prescription for success

The prognosis is mixed on Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp.’s effort to build a new hospital in Oxford because of a rough spot in negotiations with local government boards because of site options. News Editor Jonathan Scott takes a closer look at the ongoing issue and says that an open debate and the availability of information will help all involved understand the process. (March 18, 2011, Page 4A)

Fundraising 101: Have an irresistible product

There’s no doubt about one thing the Girl Scouts have learned to do better than their Boy Scout counterparts – pick items to sell for fundraising projects. News Editor Jon Scott has seen both sides, from his days selling flares as a Boy Scout to his current father role in selling Girl Scout cookies, and said there’s no doubt which one does the best. (February 18, 2011, Page 4A)

Free program offers a lifetime of benefits

It’s just a coincidence – News Editor Jonathan Scott isn’t into New Year’s resolutions – but Scott is planning to take part in a community program offered by Baptist Memorial Hospital titled “Healthy You, Healthy L.O.U.” It’s a plan to help members of the community to develop a healthy lifestyle, something Scott feels certain will be a reward well worth the effort. (January 5, 2011, Page 4)

The Christmas gift that keeps giving

Remember Peggy – the dog that came home after being missing for several years?

Hard work behind the scenes pays off

A lot of work was done behind the scenes over the last few months on “Project Duke,” which helped bring Olin Corp.’s Winchester Centerfire Operations and 1,000 jobs to Oxford and Lafayette County.

Few signs of the future we were promised

Remember the cartoon series, “The Jetsons,” that told us about the “future” with robots and flying cars and such? Word that a company in Massachusetts is coming out with a flying car brought memories of those promises from “The Jetsons” back to News Editor Jonathan Scott who takes a look at some other things we once thought we might have by now. (September 17, 2010, Page 4A)

Alejandro’s Back!

OXFORD TOWN – Alejandro Escovedo returns to Oxford next Tuesday (Sept. 14)  for  a Larry Brown tribute set and discussion at Off Square Books at 5 p.m. followed by a full concert at Proud Larry’s later that night. Oxford EAGLE News Editor Jonathan Scott talked to Escovedo about the shows, his new album titled “Street Songs of Love” and Oxford, one of his favorite cities in which to visit and perform. “Street Songs of Love” features “high powered vocal support” from legends such as Ian Hunter of Mott the Hoople and Bruce Springsteen. Pages 10 and 11 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town has Jon Scott’s very special coverage of what will be a very special show at Proud Larry’s next Tuesday. (September 9, 2010, Page 10, 11)

Welcoming the arrival of a new year

News Editor Jonathan Scott wishes everyone a Happy New Year, and then proceeds to explain that many of us look at August and the start of school as the beginning of the year more so than January. He points out the changes locally at this time as students return to town for classes at Ole Miss and writes that we all need to be ready for the start of a new year. (August 19, 2010, Page 4)

Girl Scouts provides more than delicious cookies

News Editor Jonathan Scott recalls his days as a Boy Scout and all that it did for him, and then relates that to the same types of things that girls get from Girl Scouts. A recent trip as a chaperone for some local Girl Scouts gave him even more appreciation for what belong to the organization means to those involved. (July 22, 2010, Page 4A)
