      Past, present come together at Homecoming game

      Pat C. Lamar isn’t going to let a simple thing like a broken hand, wrist and arm keep her from attending this weekend’s Homecoming Queen Reunion at the University of Mississippi on Saturday. Lamar was crowned Homecoming Queen in 1961.

      She will be one of 36 former homecoming queens who have registered to attend the first-ever queen reunion.

      The chairwoman of the reunion, Annabeth

      The idea for a reunion came from former Homecoming Queen, Annabeth Freeman Wyatt, who was crowned queen in 2000.

      Each former queen will be recognized individually at a welcome reception at 9 a.m. Saturday in Butler Auditorium inside the Triplett Alumni Center. (November 5, 2010, Page 1B)

        Ole Miss to show university’s first 3-D commercial

        The 90-second film will be played at the end of half-time during Saturday’s game on the “jumbotron.” The 3D glasses will be placed on each seat in the stadium Friday night and Saturday morning by a local Boy Scout troop. The theme of the promo had been kept tightly under wraps until recently. However, a poster made to promote the event gives away some clues the film will feature Ole Miss athletes as giants.

          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)

            State-wide twister training Wednesday

            Most people think of tornados wreaking havoc in the spring as warm air coming up from the gulf tangles with the cold air left over from the winter.

            However, November is another peak time for tornados to strike north Mississippi as the incoming cold fronts from the north greet the warmer air left over from the summer months.

            To keep Mississippians on their toes and avoid injury during possible fall tornados, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency will conduct a statewide tornado drill Wednesday to make sure all residents are prepared.

            The National Weather Service offices will conduct the tornado drill using the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather radio routine weekly test at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday. (October 19, 2010, Page 1)

              Solitude: Lamar and agriculture

              L.Q.C. Lamar is known nationally as a congressman, senator, Secretary of the Interior and associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, but he is not known for his interest in, and ownership of, farming operations. In 1854, Lamar was living in his home state of Georgia. He had established a law firm in Macon but he did not have any use for his extensive slave holdings. (October 15, 2010, Page 3B)

                  Bear named UM mascot

                  So long Colonel Rebel. Hello Rebel Black Bear.

                  The Rebel Mascot Selection Committee announced this morning that the Rebel Black Bear will be the new on-field mascot for the Ole Miss Rebels. The bear now becomes the official mascot, replacing Colonel Reb, who was removed as the on-field mascot seven years ago and whose image was officially retired this summer.

                  The selection committee made the recommendation to University of Mississippi leaders Wednesday night following a thorough analysis of the latest poll of Ole Miss students, faculty, staff, alumni and season ticket holders (October 14, 2010, Page 1)
