              Is Oxford’s economy rebounding?

              It may be, according to a couple of key indicators — namely, the city’s collections on sales tax and on the 2 percent taxes on food-and-beverage purchases and hotel stays. Compared to a year prior, December’s sales-tax collections were up 8 percent and January’s were up 2.6 percent.

                    Meet the Press with Governor Haley Barbour

                    Gov. Haley Barbour said many public school systems in the state are not yet doing a good enough job to prepare high school graduates for four-year colleges and, as a result, more students should be encouraged to attend community colleges.
