QB Adamson leads Oxford past Grenada

Oxford High School quarterback Parker Adamson didn’t get off to an ideal start in Friday’s season opener against Grenada at Bobby Holcomb Field, throwing interceptions on two of his team’s first three possessions with one of them getting returned for a touchdown.

Adamson and his teammates didn’t let the slow start and 12-0 first-period deficit shake them, however, as they rallied to post a 28-22 victory in the battle of Charger lineups. Adamson finished the night passing for 205 yards and a pair of touchdowns to help his team gain a measure of revenge for last year’s loss at Grenada. (August 20, 2012, Page 1B)

        Patience – a key for local drivers these days

        Local drivers know which roads to take, where the shortcuts are and the usual speed you can drive. Newcomers and those who’ve lived here just a short time are still learning. That’s why, Editor Don Whitten writes, those of us familiar with our streets and roads need to exercise a bit of patience while others are learning and adjusting to what we already know. (August 15, 2012, Page 4)
