    Becoming a Master Gardener is a rewarding, fun

    Becoming a Master Gardener is way more rewarding that I expected.
    I am so amazed by the beauty and “raw-ness” of the nature in Mississippi. I have an area in my backyard with kudzu, honeysuckle, other vines and trees that is as wild as any growth. It’s like Tarzan could come swinging through at any moment — hopefully Jane, also. (July 1, 2010, Page 6B)

          Princeton grad rides his bike home from school

          Peter Dunbar wanted to ride home from school on his bicycle, and he wanted his four friends to join him.
          The catch was his school is Princeton University in New Jersey and his home is in Oxford. (June 25, 2010, Page 1B)

            Stark Young: Oxford’s other early well-known author

            In the fall of 1907, when the University of Texas lured Stark Young away from Oxford, William Faulkner had not risen to fame as Oxford’s well-known author of the first half of the 20th century. Neither had Young been recognized as an author, playwright or drama critic.
            Their time was yet to come. (June 18, 2010, Page 3B)

              Hoping the oil spill doesn’t take away favorite memories

              Most people I know do not realize I have not always lived in Mississippi. I lived in Florida up until I was about 4 years old. And one of my family’s favorite past times was fishing in the Gulf of Mexico — the Gulf that is now filled with millions of gallons of crude oil. (June 18, 2010, Page 2B)

                Oxford’s trees offer more than shade

                A tree has its own memories — its own stories. If it could share its story, the magnolia tree in front of the U.S. Federal Building on Jackson Avenue could help solve a mystery of when it was planted. (June 18, 2010, Page 1B)

                  Stark Young’s days at the Walton Young Home

                  One of the most distinguished graduates of the University of Mississippi was also a resident of Oxford.
                  Although Stark Young was born in Como, he would later move with his family to Oxford. Young was born in 1881 and in 1890 his mother died. A few years later, his father, also a graduate of Ole Miss, would remarry and move to Oxford. (June 11, 2010, Page 3B)

                    New W.V. grocery recalls days gone by

                    Alexe van Beuren got tired of driving to Oxford from Water Valley whenever she ran out of her favorite milk from the Brown Family Dairy or some home-grown produce.
                    To rectify the situation she took matters into her own hands and opened her own grocery store. (June 11, 2010, Page 1B)
