On Wednesday afternoon we had a thunderstorm keep us company for a while. I watched the storm cell coming in from the west, its thunder the trumpet sporadically announcing its arrival. I had sat in the Grove watching the gray tapestry being drawn to either side of the Lyceum, the arguable hearth of our university. Once the rain came, I headed indoors and thought how sorry...

Oxford mayor Pat Patterson met with the ASB Cabinet on Sunday night. During his meeting with us, we discussed numerous topics ranging from student behavior leaving the Square to student involvement in the community. I wish to discuss both topics he raised.

Missouri (8-1,...

Oxford’s law allowing the sale of alcohol on certain Sundays has gotten mixed reviews from local restaurants. Alcoholic beverages are only allowed to be sold at restaurants on Sundays during Ole Miss football game weekends and holidays that fall on Sunday. While operators prefer to offer their patrons a choice for alcohol, they do not all agree on the impact of...

Ole Miss was back outside for practice Wednesday after spending Tuesday in the Indoor Practice Facility as they prepare to head to New Orleans to take on the Tulane Green Wave (0-2) on Saturday in the Rebels’ first road game of the season.
