LHS dominates in latest meet action

Dominating. That’s what the Lafayette High girls and boys cross country teams were Saturday in a district tri-meet hosted at Center Hill.

The Lady Commodores recorded a perfect score as they won the first five slots. Lafayette’s boys also won the meet as they finished with 33 points.

Esmeralda Rodriguez led the Lady Commodores as she finished first on the two-mile course with a time of 12 minutes, 54 seconds. Manon Mullen followed Rodriguez in second place, Rachel Starnes was third, Mariah Buford was fourth while Peyton Hamann rounded out the top five runners with a 13:54. (October 25, 2010, Page 4B)

            Lamar and the Taylor farm experiment

            In the early 1880s, L.Q.C. Lamar was thinking about retirement from public life. He started purchasing land in the small town of Taylor, just south on Oxford. By 1882, he had acquired 550 acres along the Mississippi Central Railroad. On a hill overlooking the farm, he had a small wooden frame home built in the New England farmhouse style. There were also barns and shelters for the stock, and a dairy barn.

            He wrote to his farm manager, William Knight, “that place is to be my future home at the end of my services here, I shall go to that place and spend the remainder of my life. You see, therefore, that you are not merely in charge of a nice farm and fine stock, but that you will contribute much to my future comfort.” (October 22, 2010, Page 2B)

              The lonely cookbook

              When I left home at the age of 23 to go to Caracas, Venezuela, I took two large cardboard boxes with me containing school supplies (as I was going to teach fourth grade), linens, a few books and some clothes. I also took my grandmother’s 1950 Betty Crocker cookbook.

              My roommate and I ate out most of the time, but when we did decide to stay home we each had our cooking strengths. She could make chili and I could make popcorn and chocolate chip cookies. We lived together for three years and never made a proper meal — and my cookbook was never opened. (October 22, 2010, Page 2B)

                    No. 5 Rangers claim share of North Division title

                    A 31-point outburst that stretched from the midway point of the second half to the midway point of the fourth quarter propelled the No. 5 Northwest Mississippi Community College Rangers to a 38-13 win over Holmes Thursday night.

                    The win kept the Rangers undefeated on the season (8-0) but it also earned them at least a share of the MACJC North Division title. NWCC, which is 5-0 in the North Division, will finish up the season at home Thursday against Itwabama and a win over the Indians would give them the title outright. (October 22, 2010, Page 7A)
