Census questions some households are facing

Have you returned your 2010 Census form? Have you gotten another one? What do you do now?

The local return rate still isn’t impressive, but maybe there’s a reason. (April 7, 2010, Page 4)

It’s time to step up and be counted

News Editor Jonathan Scott has filled out – and mailed back – his 2010 Census form and he notes only one change from the census’ sloan of “Take 10.” He’d say “Take Nine” since it didn’t take him but nine minutes. Scott tells us the importance of returning the forms and gives us a look at how well we’re doing locally. (April 1, 2010, Page 4)

Sportswriter’s logic, fan’s lament

AP PHOTO/MARK HUMPHREYTHE GODFREY SHOW — Oxford Town columnist Steven Godfrey lays it all out on the table as he ushers out the disappointing 2009-10 Rebel basketball season and welcomes in Rebel baseball and spring football. What happened?

Spring looks like it’s just around the corner

Spring doesn’t officially start until the end of next week, but there are plenty of signs popping up around the community that it’s going to be on time this year. Editor Don Whitten gives us some of the sights and sounds that signal that spring is just about here. (March 11, 2010, Page 4A)
