Lots of projects – Olin Corp.’s Centerfire plant, the new Oxford High School and talks about the sale of the hospital – got rolling in the first quarter of 2011, but there was one ball that really got rolling as more than a foot of snow fell in two separate storms the first two months of the year. Take a look back at January, February and March’s events in the Lafayette-Oxford-University community. (December 27, 2011, Page 1)

Rodney Crowell set for Off Square Books tonight (Jan. 20)

OXFORD TOWN – Innate storyteller and country music legend Rodney Crowell is scheduled to visit Off Square Books tonight (Jan. 20) at 6 as he tours in support of his recently released memoir “Chinaberry Sidewalks.” Check out page 5 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town for Oxford Town Editor Jeff McVay’s coverage of his recent interview with Crowell where they discussed everything from Crowell’s “rough” childhood (that evolved into something good) to his classic, poetic storytelling through his music. We’re hopeful, confident even, that the Grammy award winning musician will show up with his guitar strapped across his back tonight at 6. After all, he is the storyteller. (January 20, 2011, Page 5)
