Speed humps still on the table

Read about speed humps and other city business from Tuesday’s regular meeting in today’s Oxford EAGLE. (March 7, 2012, Page 2)

Concerns with autopsy delay

Concerns are growing over the time it takes for autopsies to be performed by the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Jackson. Some families are waiting more than a week to get their loved one’s body returned home for the funeral and 30 to 60 days for the report to be mailed so they can collect insurance money to help pay for the funeral. (January 14, 2011, Page 1A)

Green light for green space

St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church has been seeking permission to donate two houses to charity. During an Oxford Board of Alderman meeting, applause broke out from more than 100 people in attendance because an initial denial by the Historic Preservation Commission was overturned. Now the church will be able to move forward with plans to replace the homes with green space. (August 18, 2010, Page 1)

Request to donate homes to charity denied

The Oxford Historic Preservation Commission denied Tuesday two requests by St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church to remove two old homes on South 5th Street and donate them to charity. The church wants to relocate the structures to create a green space.
Jay Hughes, who represented the church at the meeting, explained that the church intends appeal to the Board of Aldermen.
