San Francisco

The bright side of a dark night

We all feel like we’ve come to know victims of the Aurora, Colo., theater shooting a bit better, but Oxford EAGLE News Editor Jonathan Scott and his family actually do know people who were in Theater 9 two weeks ago. Scott tells the story of Steve Barton and Ethan Rodriguez-Torrent, who were visitors in the Oxford community for a couple of days on their tour across the country that included a stop in Aurora. (August 3, 2012, Page 4A)

Anderson Valley: A hidden gem

OXFORD TOWN – It’s not exactly “just around the corner” but a trip there is still worth serious consideration for wine lovers. California’s Anderson Valley touts approximately 20 wineries along a 15 mile stretch of highway in northern California – each serving up “the personal touch.” We may not all be able to fly over for a visit, but we all can drive around the corner for a taste of classic California valley wine. Oxford’s “Wine Guy” (John Juergens) shares his thoughts and gives recommendations on Page 16 of this week’s issue of Oxford Town. (November 18, 2010, Page 16)

Kids’ meals getting the boot in San Francisco?

What’s the first thing most kids go looking for when they get their favorite kids’ meal bag or box from a fast-food restaurant? The toy, of course.
