City narrows sites for proposed high school

The new high school location is down to two possible spaces from the original five that the Oxford School District originally considered. While the two sites were not made public at Tuesday’s Rotary Club, the district is moving closer in negotiations to picking the right spot. The school will be able to purchase the site if the new bond referendum passes on Oct. 26 with at least 60 percent of the vote. Voters will choose whether the district can have a $30 million dollar bond. (September 8, 2010, Page 3)

                  Japan’s WW II surrender recalled

                  Today in Hawaii two American flags look down upon the services aboard the Battleship Missouri. The flags will be taken down and shipped to Oxford when the anniversary is over. The two flags are from the granddaughters of Robert E. Roy, step-father of Oxford resident Brian Pray.
                  Roy was aboard U.S.S. Missouri during the most important year of the ship from 1944 to 1945 traveling from Iwo Jima to the Okinawa invasion and Sixty Five Days of Hell to being in Japanese water space while the bombs came down to the surrender of the Japanese fleet on his vessel. And while there, he wrote.
                  He kept daily logs and memories of the chilling experiences, often noting major tragedies in only a sentence or two, not realizing just yet what the toll would be for the world.
