    Woman knocked down by car…

    No one may never know what Carol “Jeanne” Zinn was thinking Friday when she tried to stop a car with a small boy inside from rolling into the road, although it’s safe to assume she was only concerned about the child’s safety.

    Zinn, who’s owned Star Package Store for 18 years along with her husband, was outside of the package store at about 5 p.m. Friday when a family friend got out of their vehicle, leaving the car in reverse.

            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)
