Oxford Town

Spring Fed; Groundskeeper of Dreams

LIES AND OTHER TRUTHS – As we gather this weekend for baseball and boogie, a brief reflection on north Mississippi, this area, our dirt, this grass, our small postage stamp of native soul, is in order. In time-honored fashion, Dees’ neighbor, Smoke, went to Wal-Mart this week and bought a $150 mower and he’ll push it within an inch of its 3rd World/child labor/sweat shop/life. Check out Oxford Town this week for Jim Dees’ usual shenanigans as spring rolls in. (April 22, 2010, Page 9)

      Why Texas still matters

      LIES AND OTHER TRUTHS – Two news stories out of Texas this week demonstrate why that state can still hold a warm spot in your heart despite its many excesses. One story was actually an obituary for Coots Matthews, who passed away last week at age 86 and was known for his ability to fight oil well fires with dynamite. The other was series of stories out of Waco describing the aggravated assault trial of singer/songwriter Billy Joe Shaver. Dees hilarity is on Page 6 of this week’s issue of Oxford Town. (April 16, 2010, Page 7)

        Draft this man!

        THE GODFREY SHOW – This is Dexter McCluster. The waterbug. The scatback. The X-man. The Wild Rebel. The savior of an impostor offense in 2009. He’s also the undersized draft risk, an offensive tweener thought to be too small to withstand life as a primary (or even changeup/third down) tailback in the league and too much of an unknown at receiver. See what Godfrey has to say about Dexter’s draft chances on The Godfrey Show in this week’s Oxford Town. (April 15, 2010, Page 12)

            It just bees that way sometimes

            LIES AND OTHER TRUTHS – My buddy, Gerund, dropped by this week with a bumblebee sting that had swelled his face up into a catcher’s mitt. He asked for a beer and when I gave him one he could barely part his pillow lips to allow in the delicious nectar. He looked like Angeline Jolie with a hangover. Oxford Town columnist Jim Dees and the boys attempt to film bees this week at great personal risk. Check out the hilarity in this issue of Oxford Town. (April 8, 2010, Page 6)
