        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)

              MRC looking for volunteers

              While a national program, the local North Centeral Medical Reserve Corps was founded locally about a year ago and is partnered with the city of Oxford, the University of Mississippi and Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi. MRC was given federal money to start the program that is under Oxford’s Retired Senior Volunteer Program umbrella.

              MRC volunteers will assist in medical disaster operations during times of emergency and participate throughout the year doing public education programs that will touch on subjects such as pandemic flues, disaster preparedness and good health topics.

              MRC is holding an information meeting at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Oxford Activity Center in hopes of recruiting more volunteers for its program. (October 25, 2010, Page 2A)

                No pseudoephedrine a non-issue for most

                With cold and flu season making its arrival, some local doctors are requiring patients to come into the office when they have a cold or flu and want decongestant medications containing pseudoephedrine, while others make a judgment call after talking to the patient over the phone as to whether they should come into the office.

                As of July 1, any pseudoephedrine-based cold medicines including — Sudafed, Tylenol Sinus Severe Cold and Zyrtec D — now require a prescription from a physician in Mississippi. The state law was passed during the 2010 legislative session and it’s aimed at fighting the state’s growing methamphetamine problem. Pseudoephedrine is an ingredient in cold and sinus medicines, which are often sold without a prescription. It is also the key ingredient used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. (October 25, 2010, Page 1)

                    The joy of children – even in restaurants

                    Kids, as Art Linkletter showed us years ago with his TV show, do and say the darndest things. Editor Don Whitten relates his view of two families with young children during an evening meal recently at an area restaurant, and shows that we can still enjoy their actions and words just by paying attention. (October 25, 2010, Page 4A)
