Oxford Living

      L.Q.C. Lamar: A Profile in Courage

                  Some doubted the affect Faulkner’s writings would have on Oxford

                  Announcement of the awarding of the Nobel Prize for Literature to William Faulkner came on Nov. 10, 1950.
                  Under the title “I Know William Faulkner,” his friend, mentor and fellow Oxonian, Phil Stone, wrote in the Nov. 16 issue of the Oxford EAGLE about his lifelong friendship with the now world famous author. Noted New York critic, scholar and translator, Stark Young, also of Oxford, took exception to this statement. (July 23, 2010, Page 3B)

                    Hot summer months are a good time to re-evaluate your garden

                    After the Fourth of July, I usually say to Mother Nature: “Just let ‘er rip.”
                    This year, however, she started a wee bit too early for me. Granted, we have had nearly enough rain so far, but the next week bodes a really dry one.
                    So between sipping iced tea in the shade and dragging the snarled hose around, I leave a little time for pondering some of these truisms of nature. (July 23, 2010, Page 2B)
