        Social networking can get you in trouble

        A Macomb, Mich., judge recently removed a juror, required her to write an essay and fined her $250 for commenting about an ongoing trial on Facebook.

That’s obvious, Editor Don Whitten writes, when you watch drivers try to get in and out of parallel parking spots in and around Oxford. (September 3, 2010, Page 4A)

                Staff writer Alyssa Schnugg has been in the reporting business for several years, including many in Florida before she moved to Oxford.
