          Indie film to shoot in Oxford

          OXFORD TOWN — An independent film will be shot in Oxford this May with casting for several speaking roles to be held on March 27. The film 25K follows the misadventures of two bail enforcement agents who make a series of bad decisions with violent consequences.

              Souped-up Zipcar, iPod and a feeling of superiority

              OXFORD TOWN – On the road to Washington, D.C., Oxford Town columnist Alexander McAdams and her friend Willow amp up their Mazda “Zipcar” with their iPod, which sets them on the road to reminiscence. Music indeed matters in that state of mind and lyrics become all-important as the girls ponder these: “I can’t tell you what I learned in school, but I could tell a story or two.” (March 18, 2010, Page 8)

Check out Dees’ weekly recollection of this bizarre fishing trip and decide for yourself: Lie or Truth. Who knows? (March 18, 2010, Page 7)
