Gifts that have a long shelf life

With the big shopping weekend coming up, Scott takes the opportunity to point out the large number of local authors and locally-oriented books that are available for those looking for gift ideas. (November 23, 2011, Page 4A)

Jeff Callaway; A Lesson in Longevity

We can all help with this school project

A letter to the editor from a 14-year-old student in Muskegon, Mich., is asking for help from Oxford EAGLE readers on a school project about life in Mississippi. Editor Don Whitten gets the ball rolling for Logan Moore by writing him a letter in his column telling a bit about our community, our schools, our weather, et cetera. (January 19, 2011, Page 4)

Letters to the Editor

Former Oxford resident Jo Middleton writes to tell how she’s left Oxford but its writers haven’t left her. She relates stories about authors from the community and wonders if she might have picked up a little of the “spirit” to use in a book of her own. (January 5, 2011, Page 4)

Losing invaluable muses during the past year

The community newspaper business is one where we try to serve our readers by giving them a snapshot of their lives and the lives of those around them. To accomplish this, we count on members of the community to help us with stories, story ideas, pictures, et cetera. Editor Don Whitten notes that some of his most valuable contacts – his “muses” – passed away in 2010 and will be missed. (January 3, 2011, Page 4)

Spring Fed; Groundskeeper of Dreams

LIES AND OTHER TRUTHS – As we gather this weekend for baseball and boogie, a brief reflection on north Mississippi, this area, our dirt, this grass, our small postage stamp of native soul, is in order. In time-honored fashion, Dees’ neighbor, Smoke, went to Wal-Mart this week and bought a $150 mower and he’ll push it within an inch of its 3rd World/child labor/sweat shop/life. Check out Oxford Town this week for Jim Dees’ usual shenanigans as spring rolls in. (April 22, 2010, Page 9)

Spring of our Discontent

LIES AND OTHER TRUTHS – A helpful suggestion for the contentment impaired might be no further than their own backyards (speaking of course of the backyard fire). Out in Eden, Jim Dees and his friends look on early spring as pyro-thirty. It’s amazing how gathering with friends around a fire can inspire and help solve the problems of the world … but it happens. (March 25, 2010, Page 6)
