            Letters to the Editor

            Curt Kennedy writes to suggest that the mascot for Ole Miss athletic teams be a horse named Rebel. He points out the positive qualities of the animal and notes that it could be a back-to-the-future type thing since a horse was on the field for a UM football game some 37 years ago. (August 20, 2010, Page 4A)

                  UM mascot vote starts Monday

                  To be a Rebel or not to be a Rebel is not the question. It’s more about what does a Rebel look like?

                  That is what members of the University of Mississippi Mascot Selection Committee hope to answer this summer as they move into phase three of the selection process on Monday. (June 24, 2010, Page 1a)
