Oxford Blues Festival reaches community through celebration BY KATHERINE CARR email@example.com
Signs have been placed all over town announcing the 4th Annual Oxford Blues Festival, taking place this weekend. The festival kicks off tonight at 8 p.m. at The Library Sports Bar on the Square with a show from legendary guitarist, Johnny Winter. Winter was named to Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Greatest Guitarists” list as well as has been inducted into the Blues Foundation’s Hall of Fame. Silas Reed, university student and front man of Silas Reed ‘N Da Books who are set to perform Saturday, is excited to be playing in the festival with such a big name. “Johnny Winter, his career is longer than my life,” Reed said. “He decided he wanted to play guitar since before I was breathing so that’s pretty cool.” Those wishing to only attend tonight have three ticket options: general admission, VIP and VIP Meet ‘N Greet.
VIP permits access to a food and drink reception at 6 p.m. The VIP Meet ‘N Greet option includes the show, the reception as well as the opportunity to meet Johnny, take one picture with him and get one autograph. Additional ticket options include buying general admission for one day, general admission for all three days, VIP for one day and VIP for all three days. VIP tickets include close parking, food and beverages, access to the VIP tent and musician area, and guaranteed seating at the Blues Panel Discussions, which are taking place from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. on Friday at the University Museum. Tickets are available in advance for a reduced price or at the gate. After the panel discussions conclude at 4 p.m. on Friday, different acts will begin playing on the WaltonYoung Stage, which is next to the University Museum. Big George Brock out of St. Louis will be headlining that night and takes the stage last

Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library named literary landmark BY DAVID KENNEDY firstname.lastname@example.org
KATIE WILLIAMSON | The Daily Mississippian
Library assistant Adam Trobaugh goes through the books in the children’s section of the Oxford Lafayette Library.
United for Libraries has named The Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library a literary landmark in honor of Oxford’s own Larry Brown. Larry Brown is a two-time winner of the Southern Book Award for fiction, winner of the Mississippi Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts, and winner of the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters for fiction. His notable works include “Dirty Work,” “Joe,” “Father and Son” and “A Miracle of a Catfish.” The Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library was established in 1930. Before relocating down University Avenue, it was located on the Square where Brown made frequent visits to better his reading and writing skills. “When the library was on
Madison Avenue up off the Square he (Larry Brown) would come up there and take books to the fire station and read,” said head librarian Laura Beth Walker. “He came here and checked out books learning how to write, so he was a big presence in the library.” Laura Beth Walker took the job as head librarian at The Lafayette County & Oxford Public Library in November of 2012, wasting no time in seeking recognition for her library and staff. “I applied in May but I have been working on it for a couple of months getting all the stuff together for the application and we found out in a couple of weeks after I applied,” Walker said. To commemorate Larry See LIBRARY, PAGE 5

Tailgating with the Pharaohs BY AHMED SEIF email@example.com
Picture yourself in the midst of a prolonged tailgating event, at a vast, public square. People are ubiquitous across the entire horizon. Tents are everywhere. You do not have a tent of your own, so you just wander from one tent to the next. As you roam, you watch and observe. Some people are relaxing in their tents, others are glued to their phones with their fingertips hitting the touch screens with passion, tweeting and posting their opinions on all forms of social media. Next to every tent, strangers are standing by, chatting away like old friends. The tailgating activities are like none that you have seen before. At one corner, there is a stand-up comedian putting on a puppet show to sound the truth about a corrupt politician. With every punch line, the audience laughs. They laugh and hope. They hope for freedom. Across from the loud laughter, there is a local singer with an exotic Middle Eastern guitar, playing melodies of his own composing, singing lyrics of his own crafting. He sings of freedom. In the distance, there is yet another group, rallying around a lady whose speech appears to make enough sense to keep her audience no less than captivated. And every once in a while, together they cheer. They cheer for freedom. Out of nowhere, a strange chant in a strange language is heard. Following the chant, people go to their knees and place their foreheads to the ground. In humility they pray. They pray for freedom. The language is Arabic. The people are Egyptians. And the freedom is sought from social inequality, poverty and fear. This is how it felt to be part of the Jan. 25 revolution that started in Egypt’s Tahrir Square in 2011. The objective was to topple the oppressive government as well as the
president. After 18 consecutive days of protesting (or tailgating if you like), the Egyptian president resigned and ceded power to the Egyptian military. Although it has already been more than two years since this historic event, I write of it today for three reasons. Firstly, I frankly want to bring more awareness to it here in Oxford, and quite ambitiously, the whole state. Secondly, I use this very article as the base for my next one, entitled “Tailgating with the ‘divided’ Pharos,” in which I will display another, more recent revolution that erupted in Egypt only last month. When I decided to write about the more recent revolution, I realized it would be incomplete if I did not start the story from its first chapter. And the first chapter is the January 25 Revolution of 2011. Thirdly, the recent Egyptian revolutions provide a good context and occasion to take an analytical look at the U.S foreign policy in regards to the Middle East. Prior to the Arab Spring, everything was clear before the U.S. The consequences of taking any particular diplomatic posture, be it a declaration of political alliance or animosity, implementing sanctions or issuing appropriation bills, was an easy prediction to make. The interests were clear to define. These days are gone. The Arab Spring has brought with it a dense ground fog before the U.S. as it makes its foreign policies in the Middle East. This is especially the case when it comes to deciding whether to continue to support and financially aid Egypt. A question is due asking here. Why does the U.S. give aid to Egypt in the first place? Is it for a humanitarian cause? No. Egypt, contrary to what you may think, is a very cosmopolitan country. In addition, its excellent strategic location makes it Arab, Mediterranean, Islamic, Middle Eastern, African, and even

European. If the U.S. loses Egypt as an ally, it has actually lost its popularity, already at stake, in the whole regime. History has shown that this may result in the region aligning with Russia for armament. Add to that, Egypt’s Suez Canal is the only waterway that connects the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, allowing ship transport between Europe and Asia. Why is this such a big deal? Because otherwise ships would have had to navigate around the whole African continent 6,000 miles to get to their destination. This explains why the Suez Canal is of irreplaceable service to Israel, the strongest U.S. ally, and thereby to the U.S. itself. In 2009, the Egyptian authorities let Israeli warships sail through Suez Canal, aware that Israel was planning to attack Iran. If we were to make logical deductions, this means that the Canal is of one-of-a-kind benefit to both Israel and the United States should a war erupt between them and Iran. Also, the USS Kearsarge of the U.S. Navy transports troops and equipment to its bases in Asia through the Suez Canal. Furthermore, Egypt does not normally give Iran access to the Canal, yet does to the U.S. and Israel, which, as it goes without saying, is an extra perk for the latter two. In addition to all that, Egyptian authorities showed longstanding willingness to work with the U.S. on keeping the peace between Israel and Hamas. That is why the U.S. gives Egypt over a billion dollars of annual aid. Yet when the Egyptian protesters rose up in 2011 to topple their oppressive government, which facilitated all these perks to the U.S., these perks came under risk. And the U.S. became extremely reluctant to take sides. This was manifested in conflicting statements, wavering support for the protesters, and refraining from unequivocal condemnation of the gov-

ernment. The questions that Washington had to face then were: “What if the revolution brought about a U.S. unfriendly government? And what would the status of Israel be? The inevitable ultimately happened, and Egyptians toppled their government. The U.S. aligned itself with the winner. And the winner was the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). The Muslim Brotherhood is an offshoot from Hamas. Mohamed Morsi, who comes from the MB, became the elected president. Morsi was not as helpful to the U.S. as his predecessor, Mubarak, but he was somewhat. He was highly recognized by the U.S. for his influence on Hamas in the process of the reconciliation between Gaza and Israel last September. He also sustained most of the advantages given to the U.S. by Mubarak in exchange for U.S. aid; yet, again, he wasn’t helpful to the U.S. to the same degree. It was worrying to the U.S., for instance, that he appeared to want to ally with Iran. During his presidency, Egypt considered allowing Iranian warships to transit through the Suez Canal. Yet just as the advantages given by Egypt to U.S. sustained, so was the U.S. aid to Egypt. And after all, the bilateral affairs between the United States and Egypt were still not really that terrible. Internally, though, between the Egyptians and their new elected government, affairs were terrible. Actually so terrible as to make Egyptians take to streets again, and topple the elected government on June 30, 2013. With that development the bilateral relationships between Egypt and the United States took yet another new turn. Please read my next article, which will be published on July 23, to know how. Special thanks to Katherine Carr who inspired me to think of the article title.

A better response
BY TIM ABRAM firstname.lastname@example.org
Not guilty was the verdict rendered by the six women in the Seminole County Courthouse on the case known colloquially as the George Zimmerman Trial. It was a decision that was completely out of my or your control. However, what is entirely in your control is how one responds to the verdict. I have seen people celebrate that Zimmerman “got off.” I have seen people celebrate our imperfect, yet unquestionably superior criminal justice system. I have seen people espouse violent threats on the life of George Zimmerman. I have seen organizations such as the NAACP call for the Justice Department to launch a civil rights lawsuit against Mr. Zimmerman. But what I have not seen, especially from younger people, is a sensible, proactive response to what they perceive as injustice. Typically, I stray from controversial issues on social media. Oftentimes the conversations on social media will turn into diatribes about a person, rather than intellectual challenges to ideas presented. Social media, in my opinion, can truly inhibit fruitful discourses on race. However, after the verdict I simply tweeted, “If

society. I will leave you with the charge that Coach Boone left the team with after his tirade. He simply said, “Let’s go to work.” That is what we have to do now. We have to work to gain more knowledge about people different friom ourselves. We have to work to see others for more than the color of their skin. Gospel singers Mary Mary have a song called, “Can’t Give Up Now.” It highlights the many obstacles in life that we must continually triumph through the aid of God. The chorus goes, “I can’t just give up now. I’ve come too far from where I started from. Nobody told me the road we would be easy, and I don’t believe He brought me this far to leave me.” The road to racial reconciliation will be and has been a difficult one to navigate. However, we have made too much progress in the arena of racial equality to turn back now. Remember that before we reach for anger, there is always a better response.
CORRECTION: An article on the front page of Tuesday’s edition about offcampus housing incorrectly described The Hub’s response to a question about when it will be ready for students to move in. A Hub spokesperson said the apartment complex will open on schedule on Aug. 15. “Construction at The Hub is progressing as scheduled and our team looks forward to welcoming Hub residents to their new home on August 15.” said Michelle Carswell, general manager. Carswell also said they are proud to report that they are able to accommodate resiTim Abram is a public policy dents in need of an Aug. 1 major from Horn Lake.

into a team effort to achieve perfection.” Though Coach Boone was talking about football, I believe his words can be translated to everyday life. In this life, we will encounter many situations that will not be ideal by any measure. However, your response to the instance will ultimately dictate the overall impact it had on your life. Calling for the murder of George Zimmerman will not improve our justice system or assuage the feelings of loss that the Martin-Fulton family will have to endure long after we have forgotten about Trayvon Martin. However, gaining a nuanced understanding of law and the processes that accompany our judicial system will put you in a much better position to potentially prevent future injustices. The jury has spoken and judgment has been passed. It is counterproductive to continually dwell on the decision. However, the issues of racial profiling (which was never definitively proven), the media’s role in race baiting, and the “broken” justice system are conversations that should continually take place if we strive to become a post-racial

We have all seen “Remember the Titans.” Well, there is a particular scene in the movie that sparked my response to the verdict. However, I must state that I do not include references to movies to validate my creditability, but rather to buttress my opinion with a universal reference. I will provide a quick summation of the scene, so that you may understand the reference. Coach Herman Boone and Coach Bill Yoast have the newly integrated team at Gettysburg College to participate in a pre-season camp. Two of the main characters, Julius Campbell and Gerry Bertier, get into a scuffle that quickly evolves into a brawl involving the entire team. The lecture that Coach Boone gives the team is one that I find applicable to the post-Zimmerman verdict period. He says, “But any little two year old child can throw a fit.

Annual blues fest continues Oxford blues legacy BY SARA ELIZABETH BAKER firstname.lastname@example.org
Oxford has a rich history of art, music and literature. This weekend, July 18 through July 20, Oxford will celebrate its historical and modern blues culture. While this is only the 4th annual Oxford Blues Festival, the presence of blues has been constant in this small southern town for a long time. “Oxford is uniquely situated between hill country and the Mississippi Delta, so we have had a historically decent amount of blues artists,” said Greg Johnson, blues curator at The University of Mississippi. “It’s in the soul of the
area.” The blues record label, Fat Possum Records, was founded in 1991 and has recorded internationally acclaimed artists including R.L. Burnside. Burnside was born in the College Hill area and became a famous hill country artist in the 1990s, according to the Mississippi Blues Trail website. After the Center for the Study of Southern Culture was established at Ole Miss in 1977, and with the help of founding director and blues scholar William Ferris, the blues culture in Oxford began to receive more recognition. Since this time, blues musicians have been present
at many venues on the Historic Oxford Square, including Proud Larry’s, Two Stick and Rooster’s Blues House. Many blues artists have also recorded in the area, including Grammy-winning Blues Singer, Buddy Guy. The Oxford Blues Festival was created to continue the legacy of blues music and culture in Oxford. The Oxford Blues Festival works to educate about and preserve the role of blues in modern day music. “The mission of the Oxford Blues Festival is to preserve, protect and promote blues music and culture. This is achieved through education in school programs, community
events and workshops culminating with the production of an outdoor festival uniting our diverse citizenry in a celebration of American blues-based music,” states Blake Russell, Executive Coordinator, on the Oxford Blues Fest website. To celebrate the blues heritage of Oxford, the 4th Annual Oxford Blues Festival will include performances by artists the legendary Johnny Winter, “Big” George Brock, Silas Reed & Da Books, and the Reba Russell Blues Band. If you would like to support the Oxford blues culture and musicians, or just enjoy a weekend of talent, tickets are on sale at oxfordbluesfest. com.

want to use local musicians, but also I tried to bring people that have never played in Oxford.” Panel participant Ricky Stevens says this is one of the things that he is looking forward to most about the festival. “One good thing about the Oxford Festival, you’ve got a lot of potentially unknown musicians,” Stevens said. “There’s always a surprise. There’s always somebody I don’t know, I’ve never heard of before that really impresses me when I go.” Apart from the music, festival attendees will be able to purchase food from a variety of vendors, visit the University Museum exhibits for free, and participate in a silent auction which will raise money for the Exchange Club in Oxford. There will also be face painting and a moon bounce for the kids. “If you look on the banner,
Brown’s life, Walker said there will be a bronze plaque out in front of the library in his honor. Walker went on further to say there are plans for the dedication of the landmark. “After the summer winds down we’re going to plan a big event,” she said. “We don’t have the dates set for it yet, but it will be sometime this fall.” Richard Howorth, owner of Square Books and a good friend of Larry Brown, helped Walker with the literary landmark application. “Larry had a relationship with the library when he was first getting to write and do a lot of reading,” Howorth said. “He read a lot of books about how to get published and read about other writers and discovering other writers, writers who he would come to admire, and he did the same thing in our bookstore.” In order for a location to be considered a literary landmark, it takes a community

just a reason to celebrate,” Parker said. “People ask me, ‘Why are you doing the festival?’ I’m always looking for reasons to celebrate. It’s about community because there’s a lack of events that reaches a cross section of the
population. We just want a fun space where people can enjoy music. Come on out and have a good time.” More information about the festival and advance tickets can be found at oxfordbluesfest.com.
effort. “A group of citizens recognizes that somebody who was of significant literary merit living in the community or somehow attached to their community, and then they put together an application to us,” said Sally Gardner Reed, executive director of United for Libraries. “Based on the significance of that location and the significance of the author, we determine whether or not that person should be so honored.” Gardner Reed said he hopes that this particular landmark will continue to benefit children in the Oxford-Lafayette County area. “Anytime you elevate the importance of stature of reading and writing you help kids, especially children, understand how important it can be,” she said. “Writing can get you national recognition, not just playing basketball, football, or playing the guitar, but actual activity of the mind and literary achievement can be just as rewarding.”

Freeze still himself in second SEC media days BY JOHN LUKE MCCORD firstname.lastname@example.org
PHOTO BY AP PHOTOGRAPHER DAVE MARTIN
Hugh Freeze talks with reporters during the Southeastern Conference football media days.
We were reminded on Tuesday that we are just entering year two of the Hugh Freeze era and this was just his second trip to SEC media days. Despite the love for Freeze and all he’s done in his short time in Oxford, he was still asked about winning Tennessee state championships in girls basketball just five questions in. That sort of goes along with what Freeze mentioned in his opening statement. He, like he has since the end of last season, said that he wanted to maintain the momentum they built in year one and he wants the fans to be excited, but that high expectations lead to disappointment. “Our task in year two is to maintain the enthusiasm and energy from both our fans and our players and everyone that is involved in our program, as we continue to strive to be relevant in the SEC West,” Freeze said. “We have made strides. But, again, those young men we’ve recruited to help us with our depth issues, they’re 18-year-old
kids. How quick they’ll adjust to this game and this league, you really don’t know.” While some people and even experts are floating around the notion that Ole Miss could win nine or possibly even 10 games this season, what is Freeze saying? He’s talking about a lack of depth his team has along the offensive line, at defensive end, in the secondary and so on. While many are anointing his team for what they did last season, Freeze is trying to do what he’s done all offseason, temper expectations. Expectations for the jump start Rebels in year two under Freeze wasn’t the only thing mentioned on Tuesday. There was some friendly banter between Freeze and South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier, as well. Freeze was asked a question about visors and he responded and said that he began to wear visors because of Spurrier. Spurrier responded with this, “We have a lot in common. We both fish, we both golf, we both wear visors and we both call plays. How could you not like a guy like Hugh Freeze?”

While Spurrier isn’t always so friendly with his fellow SEC head coaches, I think this friendly exchange between Freeze and Spurrier is noteworthy, especially after their back and forth last year. Freeze also spoke about his healing quarterback, Bo Wallace. “He feels very good about where he’s at in his progress,” Freeze said. “They released him about four weeks ago to start tossing. Last week he began throwing full go. He’s had some soreness, of course, but everything seems to be moving along very nicely.” He said that this happened while he was at Arkansas State with another quarterback and they were concerned because it changed his motion a bit. This is why they filed for the waiver for quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator Dan Werner to be able to observe Wallace this summer. He hasn’t seen him throw this summer, obviously, but said he hears that he is making good progress. The Rebels will be on the road for the first four games, but in turn won’t leave the state of Mississippi for the last seven games. Freeze said while the scheduling is inconvenient, it is something that he can’t control. “We have a motto around our place,” he said. “We talk about what we can control. I can’t control that we’re playing those five on the road right out of the gate. But I can control how we prepare for them. So we try not to give much power to that as far as it being a negative.” Lastly, there have been attacks on the spread offense, mostly from defensive-minded coaches, that say the spread offense should not be allowed to use such a fast tempo because it presents an unfair advantage and it could cause injuries. There have been attacks on the success Freeze has had on the recruiting trail so far as well. I found something Freeze said to be very interesting and kind of representative to how he takes this criticism and how he will handle future criticism. He was referring to what he learned calling plays for the first season in the SEC, but I think this answer tells you a lot about the person Freeze is. “Still be yourself. Obviously there are a lot of times that I’m getting yelled at from the stands on how stupid a call was,” Freeze said. “Half the time I want to turn around and tell them I agree with them, it was pretty stupid.” Freeze shows a humility that is hard to find in his profession and he also has proven time and time again at each stop and even when he came to the big bad SEC, he will always be himself, whether you love him or not.
