Any ideas on Sunday sales?

Oxford will finally have its say in the on-going debate regarding Sunday alcohol sales.

    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.

              Kids watching, listening even when we don’t know it

              Children’s brains are like sponges and they pick up on so much going on around them, things both good and bad. Staff Writer Alyssa Schnugg found out just how much her 4-year-old knew about 911 and taking care of herself years ago, and she’s seen more examples lately with youngsters alerting adults about house fires at neighbors. (August 12, 2010, Page 4A)

                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)

                    Request to donate homes to charity denied

                    The Oxford Historic Preservation Commission denied Tuesday two requests by St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church to remove two old homes on South 5th Street and donate them to charity. The church wants to relocate the structures to create a green space.
                    Jay Hughes, who represented the church at the meeting, explained that the church intends appeal to the Board of Aldermen.
