    Keep safe, warm in big chill

    With 8 inches of snow in Lafayette County, many children, and even adults, spent their day Monday playing in the snow, followed by getting warm by a fireplace or space heater.

    Fortunately, their memories will remain good ones.

    A National Fire Protection Association report shows 73 percent of home heating fire deaths can be attributed to space heaters and other alternate heating sources. (January 11, 2011, Page 1)

      Is snow headed our way?

      City and county crews are gearing up to prepare for what could be the worst snow storm since 1988, according to the National Weather Service..

      Snow is expected to move into the area around Sunday afternoon, with it getting increasingly heavy after 6 p.m., said meteorologist Ryan Husted with the National Weather Service.

        DUIs down over New Year’s

        During what has traditionally been one of the year’s busiest nights for local DUI enforcement, the Oxford Police Department reported few arrests associated with driving while under the influence.

        Between Dec. 16 and Monday, OPD officers made 15 arrests on DUI charges, however, just three of these DUI arrests were made on New Year’s Eve, said Cpl. Hildon Sessums with the OPD DUI Enforcement Unit.

        The nasty weather might have helped keep people off the streets on New Year’s Eve, reducing the number of DUIs in Oxford. (January 4, 2011, Page 1)
