Few voters at polls

Voters were trickling into Lafayette County’s 18 voting precincts this morning to cast their ballot for the candidate they think should fill the North Mississippi transportation commissioner seat that became vacant by the Nov. 1 death of Commissioner Bill Minor.

Turnout was expected to be low today due to possible icy road conditions left over from Sunday’s winter storm that dumped 8 inches of snow in Lafayette County. (January 11, 2011, Page 1)

    Keep safe, warm in big chill

    With 8 inches of snow in Lafayette County, many children, and even adults, spent their day Monday playing in the snow, followed by getting warm by a fireplace or space heater.

    Fortunately, their memories will remain good ones.

    A National Fire Protection Association report shows 73 percent of home heating fire deaths can be attributed to space heaters and other alternate heating sources. (January 11, 2011, Page 1)

                Students lean illustration techniques during intersession

                During a wintersession illustration class at the University of Mississippi Wednesday, students watched as acting assistant art professor Katherine Rhodes Fields demonstrated how to transfer images using a variety of techniques.

                Dabbing wintergreen or clove oil on the back of a printed image and using a large wooden spoon, the students watched as Fields transferred a sketch, newspaper photograph and magazine pictures onto a plain piece of paper.

                The technique is often used to create collages, Fields said, or to allow artists to take an image from their sketch pad and transfer it to another media. (January 7, 2011, Page 1B)

                    Is snow headed our way?

                    City and county crews are gearing up to prepare for what could be the worst snow storm since 1988, according to the National Weather Service..

                    Snow is expected to move into the area around Sunday afternoon, with it getting increasingly heavy after 6 p.m., said meteorologist Ryan Husted with the National Weather Service. About 3 to 5 inches of snow are expected, however, Husted said if snow bands settle on top of Oxford, more than 6 inches could fall in the LOU area. (January 7, 2011, Page 1A)
