            Family comes forward to claim woman’s body

            The body of a woman labeled a pauper at last week’s Lafayette County Board of Supervisor’s meeting has been claimed and put to rest by family members in Bruce.

            Natalie “Nikki” Coleman was buried in Bruce Saturday in a family burial plot.

            Coleman was found dead in her University Arbors apartment on Oct. 28. On Monday, Lafayette County Coroner Rocky Kennedy told supervisors he could not locate family to pay for Coleman’s cremation. The board approved to foot the bill under the county’s Pauper Burial policy. (November 8, 2010, Page 2A)

              Housing market rebounding?

              The average price for a home has fallen in Oxford, just as housing prices have dropped in nearly every other community across the nation. Still, unlike many other communities in the U.S., local homes are continuing to be sold at a healthy pace. (November 8, 2010, Page 1A)

                Kids’ meals getting the boot in San Francisco?

                What’s the first thing most kids go looking for when they get their favorite kids’ meal bag or box from a fast-food restaurant? The toy, of course. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance banning toys in kids’s meals with too much calories, sodium and fat, and Editor Don Whitten writes to question the decision to turn Happy Meals into Unhappy Meals. (November 8, 2010, Page 4A)

                    Retiring judge honored

                    The retirement party for the Honorable Circuit Court Judge Henry L. Lackey was suppose to be a “roast and toast” event. While many of the speeches made by about 16 people about the Calhoun County judge caused a few chuckles — and even a few tears, it was Lackey himself who invoked rounds of hearty laughter as he lovingly roasted them in return.

                    He announced his intent to retire at a Christmas party in 2009. His term will end Dec. 31.  About 300 people attended Lackey’s retirement party Thursday at the Oxford Conference Center. (November 5, 2010, Page 1A)
