          Rain doesn’t dampen burn ban

          A state-wide burn ban is still in effect for all of Mississippi despite much-needed rain showers soaked parts of North Mississippi recently.

          However, the southern part of the state is still bone dry.

                    OPD SWAT team on target

                    Being a sniper is generally not a qualification to be a school resource officer. However, Oxford High School’s Capt. Philip Zampella says it makes him a better policeman.

                    Zampella and OPD officer Sean Eyler took fourth place in the Mississippi Tactical Officers Association SWAT training in Meridian earlier this month. About 18 teams from around the state competed in the sniper shooting and entry competitions. Zampella and Eyler were two of six OPD SWAT teams members who attended and participated in the competition. The OPD SWAT team earned fifth place in the competition. (October 26, 2010, Page 1)
