Past, present come together at Homecoming game

Pat C. Lamar isn’t going to let a simple thing like a broken hand, wrist and arm keep her from attending this weekend’s Homecoming Queen Reunion at the University of Mississippi on Saturday. Lamar was crowned Homecoming Queen in 1961.

She will be one of 36 former homecoming queens who have registered to attend the first-ever queen reunion.

The chairwoman of the reunion, Annabeth

Each former queen will be recognized individually at a welcome reception at 9 a.m. Saturday in Butler Auditorium inside the Triplett Alumni Center. (November 5, 2010, Page 1B)

          Burn bans lifted in state, county
