    Sunday sales OK with owners

    If Sunday alcohol sales are allowed in Oxford, most local bar and restaurant operators say they would support expanding alcohol services. A survey conducted by the Oxford EAGLE found that most restaurants are in support of Sunday sales and agree the issue is important, but owners are not sure if they would open just because of alcohol sales. (August 16, 2010, Page 1)

      Look of the Square changes through the years

      If you haven’t been to the Oxford Square in a few years – or a lot – it may have a different look. Gone from not all that long ago are drug stores, hardware stores, grocery stores, dry cleaners, et cetera. Editor Don Whitten takes a look at some of the comings and goings on the historic Oxford Square and the blocks that make up downtown Oxford. (August 16, 2010, Page 4)

          Dumpsters to be removed from Square

          Square businesses were notified this week that all garbage Dumpsters will be removed from South 10th and 11th Streets in an effort to make the Square more attractive, while freeing up parking spaces often occupied by delivery trucks.
          All businesses, using city Dumpsters, will be required to haul off their garbage to the city’s one compactor site in the parking lot at the corner of South 11th Street and Harrison Avenue, which is behind City Grocery and Old Venice Pizza restaurants on the south side of the Square. (August 13, 2010, Page 1A)

            Any ideas on Sunday sales?

            Oxford will finally have its say in the on-going debate regarding Sunday alcohol sales. The newly formed Oxford Alcohol Committee wants more feedback from the public and is giving the public two weeks to respond to an online survey. Citizens interested in responding can make their feelings known about Sunday alcohol sales by going to the city website and submitting responses. (August 13, 2010, Page 1)

              Well-intentioned law needs one change

              Many care packages to soldiers, sailors, marines, et cetera on bases and in action both near and far have long contained the same items: razors, toothpaste, wet wipes, paperback books, cookies and cigarettes or smokeless tobacco. Those last two items aren’t allowed to be sent through the mail any more, however, because of the PACT (Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking) Act. Editor Don Whitten argues that the ban should not affect the brave men and women standing in harm’s way. (August 13, 2010, Page 4A)

                    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.
