            Keeping gangs at bay

            When does wannabe youth gang activity turn into actual gang activity? That’s a question the Oxford School District hopes to never have to answer as it continues to remain vigilant each year to keep such issues minimal in the community. But, like every public school in the country, the district does see its share of students fascinated by gang culture.

            Earlier this winter, a situation occurred at Della Davidson Elementary School in which individual fourth- and fifth-graders called themselves members of two gangs. They also, reportedly, used tactics to bully other students. (March 22, 2010, Page 1)

                  Getting an intro to the arts

                  To keep the arts sustainable in a weak economy, Wayne Andrews, the director of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, knew when he took the job that the council would need to help art groups stand on their own two feet. A new season pass program may be just the ticket to help accomplish this.

                  In addition to this new initiative to bring more people to more cultural events, YAC is debuting a new darkroom for local shutter bugs. (March 19, 2010, Page 1A)
