      Keeping gangs at bay

      When does wannabe youth gang activity turn into actual gang activity? That’s a question the Oxford School District hopes to never have to answer as it continues to remain vigilant each year to keep such issues minimal in the community. But, like every public school in the country, the district does see its share of students fascinated by gang culture.

      Earlier this winter, a situation occurred at Della Davidson Elementary School in which individual fourth- and fifth-graders called themselves members of two gangs. They also, reportedly, used tactics to bully other students. (March 22, 2010, Page 1)

            Getting an intro to the arts

            To keep the arts sustainable in a weak economy, Wayne Andrews, the director of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, knew when he took the job that the council would need to help art groups stand on their own two feet. A new season pass program may be just the ticket to help accomplish this.

            In addition to this new initiative to bring more people to more cultural events, YAC is debuting a new darkroom for local shutter bugs. (March 19, 2010, Page 1A)

                Cedar Oaks help on hold

                Oxford is set to make needed repairs to Cedar Oaks, but the historic home is not yet property of the city. The hold up is in obtaining the last seven covenant agreements needed from property owners near the house. Due to the delay, the Board of Aldermen postponed a vote on providing funds to the Oxford Convention and Visitors Bureau on Tuesday. (March 18, 2010, Page 1)

                  What are they teaching our children?

                  Sometimes rules are meant to be broken, and Constance McMillen and the American Civil Liberties Union are teaching us all just that.
                  The American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Oxford on behalf of 18-year-old McMillen after the Itawamba County School District said it wouldn’t host her April 2 prom in response to her request to be allowed to bring a female as her date and to wear a tuxedo.

                    Indie film to shoot in Oxford

                    OXFORD TOWN — An independent film will be shot in Oxford this May with casting for several speaking roles to be held on March 27. The film 25K follows the misadventures of two bail enforcement agents who make a series of bad decisions with violent consequences.
                    For filmmaker Chase Goforth, his two passions grew hand in hand. While his career is that of a magician, doing work at corporate events, conferences and some theater work, another type of magic always fascinated him: movie-making.
