The Dart

One of several new features The Oxford EAGLE will be bringing to readers is “The Dart” story. Scheduled for Monday editions, “The Dart” is a feature story that’s based on a location in the Lafayette-Oxford-University community that’s determined by throwing a dart at a map of the county, city and university campus. Reporters will make a “cold call” interview on a street, road, neighborhood, et cetera where the dart lands.
