            When The Lanes bowling alley burned down last week, more than just bowling shoes and pins were destroyed.

            “There was so much memorabilia up in that attic,” owner Gary Churchill said Monday about Oxford’s nearly 50-year-old bowling alley. “It’s just heart breaking”

            Churchill owned the business, but rented the space from Robert and Kay Churchill, his aunt and uncle, who owned the building that housed the bowling alley and the Brass Monkey, which was owned separately by Chris Phillips and Ricky Bowles. (September 28, 2010, Page 1)

Those things, plus money, may help Johnny learn to read better, but probably not any more than things his parents, siblings and relatives could do at home. Editor Don Whitten calls on family members to do their part in the education process as well. (September 28, 2010, Page 4)
