      Warren’s second half leads Rebs past Hogs

      Andy Kennedy knows there’s nothing Ole Miss can do about its four-game losing streak to open Southeastern Conference play.

      The Ole Miss coach knows it happened. It’s not going away.

      While the Rebels can’t change the past, they continued to try and climb out of the early hole with a 69-60 win over Arkansas on Saturday night. Chris Warren, the hero of a last-second win over Kentucky earlier in the week, scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half as the Rebels (15-8, 3-5) pulled away for their third win in four games since the dismal conference start. (February 7, 2011, Page 1B)

The public is being asked to assist in increasing the number of dresses available by donating gently used dresses, shoes and accessories. Donations will be accepted until Feb. 25. Donations can be dropped off in the LHS office or library. Rainbow Cleaners will accept the dresses and clean them free so dresses can be taken to the cleaners. Tell the cleaners the dress is for the Lafayette High School Prom Dress Drive. For more information, contact the counseling office at 234-3241 or the school office at 234-3614. Beth Burt, librarian, or Lisa Russell, prom coordinator, are available to assist in collecting the donations and answering any questions about the prom dress closet. (February 4, 2011)
