    Transit system ready for students

    Students aren’t back yet but the buses have kicked off their fall schedule. As of Monday, the complete routes have restarted including the reopening of the orange route which had been closed over the summer due to low ridership. July ridership was up with 12,725 riders compared to June’s 11,048. But with students returning to Oxford next week, Oxford University Transit Manager Ron Biggs expects the ridership to once again swell despite better than expected summer ridership. For more information, visit http://www.oxfordms.net/out/schedule.htm.

          Loans still available for farmers

          Emergency loans are still available for Lafayette County farmers who lost crops or revenue due to the spring storms that wreaked havoc in several counties. Since Lafayette County is contiguous to the primary natural disaster area, it was designated eligible for Federal Disaster Assistance under the Consolidated Farm and Rural Development Act.

          Loan packages can be picked up at the Oxford Farm Service Agency office at 2610 W. Oxford Loop although the loans are processed in Calhoun County. Palmer said a loan officer can often arrange to meet a farmer in Oxford if needed. For more information or to set up appointment, call 234-8701 or 628-8732. (August 11, 2010, Page 2)
