      Oxford Generations columnist Ryan T. Miller writes about the wonder of spring, particularly in the Lafayette-Oxford-University community with all of the things to do. One of the most popular things, Miller writes, is this weekend’s Double Decker Arts Festival. (April 29, 2011, Page 1B)

        For Your Consideration

        Artists in a variety of forms are showing off their art at this weekend’s Double Decker Arts Festival. Their pieces are on display for judges, and aren’t necessarily part of the vendors’ wares around the Square. Take a closer look at some of the entries and what the artists are trying to do in the Oxford Living feature that reminds Double Decker attendees that they can cast a ballot in the People’s Choice category as well as take a look at the juried entries. (April 29, 2011, Page 1B)

            More storms expected

            Another storm front will be covering most of the Mid-South today through Wednesday and is expected to produce severe thunderstorms that include large hail — like last week’s storm, complete with high winds and possible tornadoes, according to the National Weather Service.

            Lafayette County is under a flash flood watch, flood warning and tornado watch until midnight, unless canceled or continued, through Wednesday by the NWS. (April 26, 2011, Page 1)

              Letters to the Editor

              Valorie Rogers Ott writes to say how grateful the community should be for the way the Oxford school system staff and the Oxford Police Department handled last week’s lockdown situation, while Jason Plunk writes to thank all involved with the planning and scheduling of this year’s Double Decker festival because it will help local businesses. (March 28, 2011, Page 4A)

                Double days for Double Decker

                After a rainstorm caused Double Decker Arts Festival organizers to change to a two-day event this year, the positive feedback led the Tourism Council to approve turning the festival into a planned two-day event for April 29-30, 2011. (May 21, 2010, Page 1A, 2A)

                  Did date change water down alcohol sales?

                  Despite large crowds on the Square on Saturday, sales at restaurants and bars seemed to have been less than half a typical Double Decker Arts Festival weekend. The drop in business has some Square bar operators wondering whether Double decker should be moved to another time of year, whether more festivals should be added to boost tourism, or whether the solution is Sunday alcohol sales. (April 27, 2010, Page 1-14)

                    Complaining vs. counting our blessings

                    While he agreed with the decision last week to postpone most of the Double Decker Arts Festival to Sunday, Editor Don Whitten admits that he still was complaining when looking for a parking spot before church. A trip through central Mississippi later that day that showed some of the path of destruction of several tornadoes and gave a different perspective on the inconveniences of changing Double Decker. (April 26, 2010, Page 4A)
