Retirement day for Col. Reb

Colonel Reb is soon to be a remnant of the past as he goes into the vault tomorrow. Today is the last official day his image can be licensed. The College Licensing Company, the agent for the University of Mississippi licensing issues, released a memo in March to all licensees that the image of the Colonel may only be licensed through August 31. Tomorrow he enters the College Vault Program where the image can only be licensed out for special occasions for historical use. (August 31, 2010, Page 1)

          Lion’s Club continues to be ‘knights of the blind’

          The Oxford Lions have helped the needy obtain eye glasses for almost 70 years when the club was first chartered.

          The club gives out about two $125 grants a month to adults and children who cannot afford to purchase glasses and, for whatever reason, are not eligible for Medicaid.

          The club also takes donations of old eye glasses that are recycled and given to needy families. Old eye glasses can be dropped off at most Oxford eye clinics or the Bank of Commerce, 1610 W. Jackson Ave. Monetary donations for the eye program can be mailed to Oxford Lions, P.O. Box 1751, Oxford MS 38655 or given to any local Lions Club member. For more information, call Mulkey at 234-2220. (August 25, 2010, Page 1)

The House passed the bill on Feb. 10 and then sent it to the state Senate. The Senate quickly passed the bill and sent it on to the Gov. Alexander G. McNutt, for him to sign into law. He signed the bill on Feb. 20, 1840. (August 20, 2010, Page 3B)
