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)

    Gaming giant moves headquarters to Memphis

    OXFORD TOWN — When Games Workshop closed the doors to its Memphis Battle Bunker last year, faithful table top strategy players from Tennessee to Alabama to Mississippi were left without a place to set up their armies and had to make do with battling it out in their own garages and on make-shift tables. (April 15, 2010, Page 9)

      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)

          UM hooligan on the big screen

          OXFORD TOWN – Tate Ellington may be best known in Oxford as a hooligan even if the rest of the world considers him a respectable actor. While in college at Ole Miss, he was part of the comedy troupe, “The Hooligans” but has since gone on to be in numerous film, TV and theater performances. Now living in New York, Ellington recently starred as Aidan in the dramatic “Remember Me” alongside Robert Pattinson of “Twilight” fame. Ellington recently answered a few questions for the Oxford TOWN about his college experiences, working on “Remember Me” and where to see him next. (April 8, 2010, Page 7)

            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)
