    Local banks robbed more often

    While Oxford has had two bank robberies and nearby Water Valley has had one bank robbed in 2010, nationally, the Bonnie and Clyde wannabes seem to be getting fewer. (November 10, 2010, Page 1)

        Oxford students honored Monday for high test scores

        Eighteen Oxford School District students, in grades third through eighth, were honored during Monday night’s regular School Board meeting for obtaining the highest possible scores on the math section of the Mississippi Curriculum Test 2.

        Thirteen of the students attend Della Davidson, four are from Oxford Middle School and three are from Oxford Elementary. (November 9, 2010, Page 2)

            Family comes forward to claim woman’s body

            The body of a woman labeled a pauper at last week’s Lafayette County Board of Supervisor’s meeting has been claimed and put to rest by family members in Bruce.

            Natalie “Nikki” Coleman was buried in Bruce Saturday in a family burial plot.

            Coleman was found dead in her University Arbors apartment on Oct. 28. On Monday, Lafayette County Coroner Rocky Kennedy told supervisors he could not locate family to pay for Coleman’s cremation. The board approved to foot the bill under the county’s Pauper Burial policy. (November 8, 2010, Page 2A)

              Retiring judge honored

              The retirement party for the Honorable Circuit Court Judge Henry L. Lackey was suppose to be a “roast and toast” event. While many of the speeches made by about 16 people about the Calhoun County judge caused a few chuckles — and even a few tears, it was Lackey himself who invoked rounds of hearty laughter as he lovingly roasted them in return.

              He announced his intent to retire at a Christmas party in 2009. His term will end Dec. 31.  About 300 people attended Lackey’s retirement party Thursday at the Oxford Conference Center. (November 5, 2010, Page 1A)

                No loose dogs allowed at Lamar Park

                Keeping your dog on a leash has been the law inside the city of Oxford for several years, but was only loosely enforced at the Lamar Park — until now.

                Oxford police and animal control officers haven’t felt the need to crack down on dogs running free while chasing sticks or Frisbees at the park until now. Dog owners can expect to see this law strictly enforced after a woman was knocked down by a loose dog while at Lamar Park on Thursday. The fall resulted in the woman breaking her wrist.

                The Oxford Police Department and Animal Control officers will issue warnings for one week, Martin said. After that, citations will be issue. The fine for violating the city’s leash law is $174. (November 5, 2010, Page 2A)

                  Narcotics agents hope to keep new ‘legal’ drug out of Oxford

                  Few would disagree there’s no better way to end a stressful day than by soaking in a hot bath, filled with bubbles and scented bath salts.

                  Unfortunately, it appears those same bath salts have become a recreational tool of another kind for some people.

                  Narcotic agents are becoming concerned over reports that a product, marketed as “concentrated bath salts,” is being used to get high. The main ingredient, methylenedioxypyrovalerone, is a psychoactive drug that acts like a stimulant that has four times the potency of drugs like Ritalin.

                  “We haven’t seen any on Oxford’s streets yet,” said Lafayette County Narcotics Agent-in-Charge Keith Davis.

                  The bath salts are not the usual kind you can purchase from Walmart or drug stores like Walgreen’s, Davis said.

                  “They are usually found at shady convenience stores and head shops and on the Internet,” he said. (November 5, 2010, Page 9A)

                    Past, present come together at Homecoming game

                    Pat C. Lamar isn’t going to let a simple thing like a broken hand, wrist and arm keep her from attending this weekend’s Homecoming Queen Reunion at the University of Mississippi on Saturday. Lamar was crowned Homecoming Queen in 1961.

                    She will be one of 36 former homecoming queens who have registered to attend the first-ever queen reunion.

                    The chairwoman of the reunion, Annabeth

                    The idea for a reunion came from former Homecoming Queen, Annabeth Freeman Wyatt, who was crowned queen in 2000.

                    Each former queen will be recognized individually at a welcome reception at 9 a.m. Saturday in Butler Auditorium inside the Triplett Alumni Center. (November 5, 2010, Page 1B)
