    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)

          Japan’s WW II surrender recalled

          Today in Hawaii two American flags look down upon the services aboard the Battleship Missouri. The flags will be taken down and shipped to Oxford when the anniversary is over. The two flags are from the granddaughters of Robert E. Roy, step-father of Oxford resident Brian Pray.
          Roy was aboard U.S.S. Missouri during the most important year of the ship from 1944 to 1945 traveling from Iwo Jima to the Okinawa invasion and Sixty Five Days of Hell to being in Japanese water space while the bombs came down to the surrender of the Japanese fleet on his vessel. And while there, he wrote.
          He kept daily logs and memories of the chilling experiences, often noting major tragedies in only a sentence or two, not realizing just yet what the toll would be for the world.

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)
