Woodlawn zoning change OK’d

A change in the zoning for the area near Woodlawn subdivision was finally approved by the Oxford Planning Commission after months of discussion. The deal includes a land trade between the city and property owner in order to create a community park adjacent to the subdivision. The zoning changes — which must still be OK’d by the Oxford Board of Aldermen — affect about 44 acres of land around what would become West Oxford Loop Extended.

          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. While collections are still down for the fiscal year, they’re moving in the right direction.

                    Remembering Barry: Hannah, 67, dies Monday

                    To the world he was an author but for many in Oxford he was something more: friend and teacher, a fisherman and a dad. Writer Barry Hannah died on Monday afternoon of natural causes, according to the Lafayette County coroner, at his home in Oxford. It was just weeks shy of his 68th birthday and days before his work and life were to be honored at the 17th annual Oxford Conference on the Book.
