      Veterans Memorial Park shapes up

      A park is taking shape thanks to the help of the city of Oxford. The Veterans Memorial Park is beginning to take shape as Bennett Construction crews have been placing curbing along the street. The addition of sidewalks next week will make it easier to walk  from the State Veterans Home, past the new park and down the hill to the Veterans Building. (July 9, 2010, Page 1A)
