Oxford Living

With the return of the clock, the renovation of the courthouse will be complete

When I was a child growing up on South Lamar, a little way before you got today’s Highway 6 bypass, I first lived at my grandfather’s home and you could hear the hourly ringing of the town clock while sitting on the front porch. Later on, my mother moved my sisters and I a little closer to the Square on South Lamar just south of where Johnson Avenue comes into South Lamar. The chiming of the clock was even more audible.
It has been way too long since any of us has heard the clock strike any sort of sound. (August 13, 2010, Page 3B)
