The right to life is one of the most dearly held freedoms that we enjoy as Americans, followed closely by the right to make choices without government force or coercion. These two rights are fundamental from the Declaration of Independence to the Bill of Rights — life and liberty.

“Small but mighty” is the best way to describe the Ole Miss Forensics Team, which has recently earned more attention with its wins in Baton Rouge, La., and Memphis.

The team, coached by JoAnn Edwards and Debra Yancy, has traveled to debate tournaments from as far west as Portland, Ore., to as far east as Boston, Mass. Despite sometimes having to drive 13 or more hours and running off of nothing more than coffee, crackers and a prayer, the team seems to have great, unique experiences everywhere they go.

The tragic shootings on the Virginia Tech campus, in which a student killed 32 people and wounded 25 others before committing suicide, occurred nearly five years ago.
Since then, some states and their universities, including Mississippi, have thought about changing their on-campus gun laws. The thought is that a law-abiding person carrying a firearm could have a positive effect in a situation like a school shooting.

It was 6:30 a.m., and Bottletree Bakery was empty. The only sounds came from the bakers in the back and the hum and click of the coffee-maker.

It was 6:30 a.m., and Bottletree Bakery was empty. The only sounds came from the bakers in the back and the hum and click of the coffee-maker.

“Want some coffee?” Laura Robuch, who works at the bakery, asked.

I accepted gratefully. “Do you still get it imported from Oregon?” I asked.

“Every week,” she replied as she set the steaming mug in front of me.

The imported coffee is not the only thing unique about Bottletree.

The Pride of the South’s performance has less life than a 2010 Beatles reunion that Paul forgot about. Watching the band as they stiffly creeped in and out of figure eights and other unintelligible formations with their horns pointed always at the sky boxes felt like giving Kentucky a 20-minute time-out to lull the crowd to sleep.

Jacksonville State 49 Ole Miss 48: 

The old saying goes: “You win some and you lose some.” But that saying couldn’t have been referring to a Division I program losing to a Football Championship Subdivision opponent. Well, on the opening weekend of college football it did, and the Rebels were plastered onto the television screens of ESPN viewers for all the wrong reasons. Ole Miss led by 21 points at the half, but the Rebels’ defense – supposedly one of the top units in the country – couldn’t stop Jacksonville State’s spread-option attack in the second half. The Gamecocks put the game into overtime in the final seconds, and sealed the colossal upset on a two-point conversion in the second overtime.
