Alley effort underway

Alleys behind restaurants on the Square could soon be a bit tidier now that Oxford officials approved a new contract to cut down on grease bins. The board approved a contract with Hide and Tallow Co. of Birmingham, Ala., to supply grease bins for the city. (April 27, 2010, Page 3)

      City gets $500K windfall

      State officials presented Oxford leaders with an unexpected gift of more than half a million dollars in road funds. But the windfall comes with a catch: the city must find a way to spend the dollars by May 28. The Oxford Board of Aldermen met Monday to approve using the funds to add sidewalks on Sisk Avenue and improve sewer issues on Park Drive. (April 27, 2010, Page 1-2)

        Did date change water down alcohol sales?

        Despite large crowds on the Square on Saturday, sales at restaurants and bars seemed to have been less than half a typical Double Decker Arts Festival weekend. The drop in business has some Square bar operators wondering whether Double decker should be moved to another time of year, whether more festivals should be added to boost tourism, or whether the solution is Sunday alcohol sales. (April 27, 2010, Page 1-14)

          Literary groups join forces for reading

            Two-day festival a hit

            Despite concerns over the last-minute decision of the organizers of the Double Decker Arts Festival to move most of the annual event to Sunday to avoid stormy weather, the move turned out to be a prudent – and successful – one. Crowds turned out for both the Saturday-evening concert lineup of headliners and Sunday’s all-day attraction of art and food vendors and more live performances. (April 26, 2010, Page 1A)

                  Double Decker: Crowds turn out

                  SUNDAY UPDATE — The 15th Annual Double Decker Arts Festival drew a healthy crowd Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, despite having to be rescheduled due to Saturday’s morning storms and strong winds. On Saturday night, headliner Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings opened their act with a riff on their wild travels through Mississippi — 20 minutes behind the tornado that damaged Yazoo City.

                    Double Decker: Plan B

                    For the first time in its 15-year history, the Double Decker Arts Festival rescheduled the bulk of its festivities from Saturday to Sunday due to the threat of severe weather. The new music lineup re-arranges the slate of bands, from a one-day concert on two stages to a two-day concert on a single stage. Headliner Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings are still performing Saturday night. Art booths and food vendors are to open on the Square Sunday starting at 10 a.m.
