Oxford

Letters to the Editor

Fred Brown questions why state legislators and government officials hire state biologists and then don’t seem to always follow their advice when it comes to hunting laws and guidelines, while Edwin C. LeGrand III urges Mississippians to find out more about individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities during March which is IDD Month. (March 9, 2010, Page 4)

Job training helps young adults

The Arbor Education and Training Youth Services program helps 17- to 21-year-olds by providing a two-week intensive training for job search skills and academic remediation. When the training ends, the youth is placed in a 90-hour internship, paid through the program. A new group will begin on Wednesday in Water Valley at the Lawrence Turner Community Center.

Letters to the Editor

Barry Hannah – entertainer, teacher, inspiration

Barry Hannah entertained many with his highly-acclaimed novels and collections of short stories, but his biggest contribution to the local community may well have come in the classroom as he’s taught, mentored and inspired countless students through the years. Editor Don Whitten admits to having his ups and downs with Hannah’s literary work, but not with all he’s seen from folks who tout Hannah’s other contributions. (March 3, 2010, Page 4)

EAGLE’s new Web site full of features

It’s been discussed for several years and it’s been in the serious planning and development stages for six months. And now it – The Oxford EAGLE’s new and improved Web site – is making its debut today. The site, which will offer something for all of our readers, will hopefully be a working model that will allow for e-subscriptions and other features for those who’d like to get their LOU community news via the Internet. (March 1, 2010, Page 4)

Letters to the Editor

Jean M. Shaw of the Homeless Task Force thanks members of the Lafayette-Oxford-University community for attending a meeting about the local homeless problem, while Oxford Lions Club treasurer John Mulkey asks the community to help the club raise funds for local members of the Mississippi Lions Club All-State Band who will be traveling to Australia this summer. (February 26, 2010, Page 4A)

Did some folks miss out on the pride gene?

You’ve got to wonder sometimes if folks have any pride at all, especially those who throw out garbage while traveling on County Road 313 in Lafayette County. Don Whitten takes a closer look at the issue after hearing from a resident who picks up the trash that’s on the side of the road near his property. (February 26, 2010, Page 4A)

Run for Hope a community-wide event

Many local runners are taking part and many other citizens have volunteered for a wide variety of jobs at Saturday’s Run for Hope Half Marathon and 5-K run. Now, it’s time for the rest of us to do our part to cheer everyone on as they take part in a local event that helps a special cause at Camp Hopewell and could mean so much to the community. (February 24, 2010, Page 4)

Weekend snow almost perfect

Youngsters around the community might not think so, but Editor Don Whitten felt that the weekend dusting of snow was just about perfect – enough to enjoy but not enough to mess up travel and school. (February 15, 2010, Page 4)

Schools need assistance in dealing with cuts

Funding problems are only going to get worse for Mississippi educators with the governor announcing more budget cuts. Administrators want to make the cuts without affecting the education process, and they say they need a bit more assistance from lawmakers and education officals at the state level. (February 5, 2010, Page 4A)
