Minnie Cooper devotes life to little ones

Last week, Minnie Cooper greeted a trio of children who had just gotten off the school bus. One by one, the children recounted a scuffle that had just taken place before the bus driver dropped them off at Kid’s College Day Care in Abbeville. That’s where the Dart landed this week. Cooper, who has owned the family business on County Road 118 next door to her home since 2002, promised she’d relay the information to the children’s parents before sharing the story that led her to become a daycare facility owner and operator. (September 1, 2014, Page 1)

              City of Oxford owed $3.6 million in fines

              The city of Oxford is owed $3.6 million in unpaid fines.

              Oxford Mayor Pat Patterson announced the findings Friday during a Downtown Parking Advisory Commission Board meeting.

              “With the recent audit, we were surprised to learn we had that amount of unpaid fines in the court system,” Patterson said. “We are working with our auditors to try to determine the best way to proceed to collect any amounts possible, and it will be one of our focuses going forward.”

              City leaders said the findings were included in an 882-page report. They include parking violations and criminal fines, such as DUIs, that date back to 2007. (August 4, 2014, Page 1)
