Oxford Town

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.

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)
