City narrows sites for proposed high school

The new high school location is down to two possible spaces from the original five that the Oxford School District originally considered. While the two sites were not made public at Tuesday’s Rotary Club, the district is moving closer in negotiations to picking the right spot. The school will be able to purchase the site if the new bond referendum passes on Oct. 26 with at least 60 percent of the vote. Voters will choose whether the district can have a $30 million dollar bond. (September 8, 2010, Page 3)

The car started to roll backward into Depot Street. A small child was still in the car … (September 7, 2010, Page 2)
