Ole Miss

Oxford refrain

Sometimes we need an outsider, a visitor to our community, to remind us how special it is. Loran Smith, who’s held a number of positions at the University of Georgia during a career thats earned him a spot in the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame, gives us one of those reminders in a guest column he wrote after another delightful visit recently. (February 4, 2011, Page 4A)

Non-profit moves women of color past labels

The mass media doesn’t always give a true look at black girls and women, and that’s why Beverly Bond has founded Black Girls Rock! Inc. – to help black girls move beyond stereotypes and labels.

So why was Bill Clinton in town Thursday?

Was former President Bill Clinton in Oxford on Thursday to stump for U.S. Rep. Travis Childers or was he just making another stop on a Get Out And Vote campaign nationwide?

A drinking town with a football problem

Local physician Dr. Will Dabbs weighs in on the culture of alcohol in the LOU community and how it affects so many. He relates, in a guest column, cases he’s had to deal with in his profession, and says it’s not just a money issue, a moral issue or a religious issue. (October 6, 2010, Page 4)

Tablecloth marks time

Assistant News Editor Anne Pringle recalls years and years of tailgating, whether outside Mississippi Memorial Stadium in Jackson, out of the backs of cars in the Grove at Ole Miss or in the current “tent city” style all over the UM campus as she and other family members get ready for another season of Rebel football – and tailgating. (August 26, 2010, Page 4)

Coming to Oxford – a little ahead of schedule

Assistant News Editor Anne Pringle planned, like many, to retire in Oxford. Sometimes, however, things change and that’s what happened to her, bringing her to Oxford a bit sooner than expected. Pringle writes about the adjustments she and her daughter are making as they get accustomed to living in the community. (July 30, 2010, Page 4A)

How many of you know our state song?

Newspapers and libraries are often called for information that no one else seems to have, and one question that’s come to The EAGLE lately involves Mississippi’s state song. Editor Don Whitten recalls learning the song, “Go Mississippi,” during his elementary school days. (July 19, 2010, Page 4)
