              Fire strikes bowling alley

              An early morning fire left The Lanes bowing alley and Brass Monkey bar and grill destroyed — and Oxford residents without water.

              The combination of a high-profile fire and lack of water made for hectic start of the day for emergency responders and hundreds of the city’s residents.

                    Officials agree dead tree must be removed

                    A limb from the large water oak on the east side of the Lafayette County Courthouse fell at about 5:30 Saturday morning onto the wrought-iron fence the surrounds the courthouse. The weight of the limb was so heavy that about 2 feet of the fence buckled, looking as though a car had slammed into it instead of a tree limb.

                    Now Oxford and Lafayette County officials are scrambling to get the large tree that has provided cool shade on the Square since William Faulkner was a youngster removed before another limb — or the entire tree — falls. (September 16, 2010, Page 1)
