        30,000 Yankees encamped at College Hill

        Stories of courage and honor surround the Yankee’s occupation in the  College Hill area after Gen. Ulysses S. Grant crossed the Tallahatchie River near Abbeville and went on to Oxford.

          Which way is Montana?

          Every now and then we all face moments when we wish we were somewhere else.

          These moments might look like a rough day at work, an awkward pause in a conversation or the moment you receive some very difficult news. We all face them and we all have to deal with them. And yet, in our mind’s eye, we often travel to far off distant places to escape or run away. These exotic mental locations might be different for every one of us, but the principle is still the same. (September 10, 2010, Page 1B)

            Regional Center residents create bowls from discarded magazines

            Johnny steadied his hand and aimed the glue gun at the small, folded magazine page. With careful precision, he applied the glue in a thin trail down the paper before placing the next strip of paper on top.

            “I’ve never burned my fingers,” he said with pride.

            Johnny has lived at the North Mississippi Regional Center for two years and says he really likes it there. He and several other NMRC individuals have been working everyday on making bowls out of magazines. A project, he said, has been “lots of fun.” (September 10, 2010, Page 1B)

                Through a camera lens…

                William H. Morris isn’t a professional photographer. He’s just a man with a camera and a knack for taking pictures that capture the spirit of his alma mater, the University of Mississippi, Oxford and the people who call it home.

                More than 20 years of photographs are what fills Morris’ new coffee-table book, “Ole Miss at Oxford.” The self-published hardcover book contains 300 full-color photographs on 232 pages. See a few of those photos in today’s Oxford Living. (September 3, 2010, Page 1B)

                    Get out of my garden!

                    Over the past 25 years urban sprawl has actually been an invasion of the deer’s habitat and in turn urban sprawl has provided lush landscaping and gardens that provide deer with abundant food. The result has been rapid population growth. Master Garderner Susan Boehm suggests experimenting in your garding with plants that deer tend to avoid and offers websites worth checking out. (August 27, 2010, Page 3B)
