    Meet the Press with Governor Haley Barbour

    Gov. Haley Barbour said many public school systems in the state are not yet doing a good enough job to prepare high school graduates for four-year colleges and, as a result, more students should be encouraged to attend community colleges. Barbour made the statement during a “Meet the Press”-style event held Tuesday at the Overby Center in the School of Journalism and New Media at the University of Mississippi. (March 3, 2010, Page 2)

      Conjee – poor man’s dish

      Congee is pronounced as “kan-ci” or “kan-ji” and is a type of rice gruel/porridge. It is eaten today in many Asian countries as a recovery meal, breakfast and festival food. The word “congee” comes from the Dravidian language (Tamil) “kanci,” which means rice cooked water. In South India, fresh hulled parboiled rice is used to prepare this kanjee. It is one of the oldest breakfast items, predominantly eaten in an agricultural society by farmers and other village work force. Read today’s Eating Well page for the recipe. (March 3, 2010, Page 6)

          Remembering Barry: Hannah, 67, dies Monday

          To the world he was an author but for many in Oxford he was something more: friend and teacher, a fisherman and a dad. Writer Barry Hannah died on Monday afternoon of natural causes, according to the Lafayette County coroner, at his home in Oxford. It was just weeks shy of his 68th birthday and days before his work and life were to be honored at the 17th annual Oxford Conference on the Book.

            Author Barry Hannah dies

            Oxford lost one of its best-known writers Monday afternoon. Barry Hannah died just days before this year’s Oxford Conference for the Book, set to be dedicated to him and his work. He would have been 68 years old next month. Hannah was the author of eight novels and several collections of short stories, and was the director of the MFA program in creative writing at the University of Mississippi.

            The family will have a private funeral and graveside service. A public memorial service is planned for Sunday at 4:30 p.m. at Fulton Chapel on the University of Mississippi campus. Waller Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

                Hannah helped shape many of us as writers

                I was going through a major life change a few years ago and wanted to find my way back to writing. I decided to enroll in Barry Hannah’s creative writing course thinking it would be fun. Boy was I ever wrong. Instead it was the most grueling and painful experience of my life and one that has forever changed who I am.
                Hannah wasn’t my favorite teacher because he was nice. He was a tough cookie with his students but anyone who ever had the joy of getting to experience it knows that they are forever a better writer because of him.

                    A new city hall and several new businesses are bringing a mini-boom to downtown Abbeville.
