OUS making plans for expansion

Oxford University School will be adding back a fifth grade this year and has plans to allow new students half off tuition. Along with the changes, a new $50,000 scholarship is available to help academically gifted or needy students for a full tuition waiver. (June 1, 2011, Page 1)

Sunday alcohol sales a success

Between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Sunday most businesses that chose to open saw steady customers, especially around the Square. There was little police incident to report and businesses said they saw a modest profit. (May 9, 2011, Page 1A)

Sunday alcohol sales uncorked

The first test of Oxford’s expanding alcohol sales on a select-few Sundays will be this weekend on Mother’s Day. Sales will be allowed in restaurants from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (May 6, 2011, Page 1A)

Board OKs Sunday alcohol sales

While the Board of Aldermen approved Sunday alcohol sales for on-premise permit holders on Tuesday, supporters should wait to pop the cork to celebrate until Mayor Pat Patterson decides if he will veto the issue. If he does not, than the city must wait for state approval. The board also heard the first reading of an ordinance amendment allowing Sunday off-premise sales from noon to 6 p.m. which means beer and light wine could be sold at convenience stores. The mayor promised to veto the issue if passed. (December 8, 2010, Page 1)

Sunday sales OK with owners

If Sunday alcohol sales are allowed in Oxford, most local bar and restaurant operators say they would support expanding alcohol services. A survey conducted by the Oxford EAGLE found that most restaurants are in support of Sunday sales and agree the issue is important, but owners are not sure if they would open just because of alcohol sales. (August 16, 2010, Page 1)

No alcohol on Sunday

After more than a year of on-again, off-again debate on whether to allow some form of alcohol sales in Oxford on Sunday, the Oxford Board of Aldermen on Tuesday voted 6-1 to deny an effort to even test the idea. (June 2, 2010, Page 1)

Speak out on Sunday sales

A public hearing will be part of the Board of Aldermen’s Tuesday meeting at 6 p.m. to discuss the proposal of Sunday alcohol sales, presented by Jerry Jordan, owner of the 208 restaurant. (May 28, 2010, Page 1A, 2A)

Ready to have your say?

A hearing is set for June 1 on extending alcohol sales to Sundays. The proposal was presented to the Board of Aldermen on Tuesday as a three-step process to Sunday sales. The public hearing comes after a 10-month debate on the emotional measure. (May 19, 2010, Page 1, 8)
