OPC board steps back from Woodlawn Park

The Oxford Park Commission decided Wednesday it was better to wait until they had enough money to built a walking trail and park near the Woodlawn subdivision rather than rush it and do it in piecemeal and leaving phases incomplete.

New tennis courts need sod

The new tennis courts at the FNC Tennis Facility are almost complete but lots of rain and bad weather have stalled the project.
