Healthy meals, Rowan Oak gardens projects underway

Members of the 2010 Leadership Lafayette Class are working on three different projects designed to improve the community. One group wants to help provide children from low-income families with easy-to-prepare meals they can make themselves while at home on the weekends. Another group is working on renovating some of the gardens at Rowan Oak, and the third group is working with local restaurants to promote some of the healthier meals available at these businesses. (May 21, 2010, Page 1A)

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)
