              Perhaps one of your neighbors has been capturing his or her rainwater to help their garden for years. Maybe your boss is devoted to recycling and encourages others to do the same. Whoever they are, they could be eligible for a new Sustainability Leadership award.

                Counting college students complicated

                Oxford and other college towns have a vested interest in making sure students fill out their census forms by April 1.
                The number of students living in a county helps determine the number of seats in Congress a state might have, how many federal dollars can be funneled to a state and its communities, and how much student loan money is doled out.
                But, as Oxford and University of Mississippi officials are well aware, obtaining an accurate student head count is no easy task.

                    End of road for colonel?

                    Colonel Reb’s days could be numbered as he is set to enter the College Vault Program this August. The College Licensing Company, the agent for the University of Mississippi’s licensing issues, released a memo this week to all licensees that the image of the Colonel may only be licensed through August 31.
