New CEO of Chamber of Commerce BY KAYLA CARPENTER email@example.com
After serving 10 months as vice president of the OxfordLafayette County Economic Development Foundation, Jon Maynard will take over as president and CEO of the Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Foundation on Jan. 1. Maynard will succeed Max Hipp, who announced his retirement in September after 25 years with the chamber. “I feel very welcomed by the community,” Maynard said. “Having been asked to carry on a successful legacy left by Max is an overwhelming honor. I have known Max for many years, and he has done a tremendous job of growing our community in a positive way.” Upon retiring, Hipp reflected on his past 25 years with the chamber and all that it has accomplished. “Our mission or program of work has changed substantially during my years here,” he said. “In the beginning we were lightly staffed and concentrated mostly on organization; with the EDF, we developed a more formal Oxford-Lafayette County Economic Development Foundation, a public-private
partnership.” According to Hipp, the Chamber of Commerce is a membership services organization focused primarily on helping its members advertise, providing them opportunities for networking and developing overall quality of life. The Economic Development Foundation works mainly on longer-term projects that will have a positive effect on the Oxford community. The two goals Hipp set early on were to improve the image of the Chamber of Commerce and to be as effective as possible in positively influencing growth in the community. “By common measures such as community participation in our activities, number of members and the growth in jobs and the tax base, I believe we have been successful in reaching those goals,” Hipp said. In the 10 months Maynard has been with the organization, he has had the opportunity to work on economic development projects, interact directly with boards, businesses and local governing bodies and develop regional relationships with the economic development community. Randy Leister, chairman of the foundation, praised the job Hipp has done during his
time and said the foundation made the right choice for his successor. “Max has served this community extremely well in his 25 years at the helm,” Leister said. “Jon has the experience in economic development and the passion for the community that Max has had all along. We have found the right replacement for Max, and the right individual to lead this organization into the next decade.” When asked about his goals for the future, Maynard said the chamber and foundation hope to bring about change in the areas of organizational growth, employment growth in the community, success in targeted business sectors and success in workforce development. Maynard also has longtime goals, including the development of both small and large businesses. “We require different tools for different jobs,” he said. “The chamber and EDF are excellent at utilizing the tools of the community to get the task accomplished.” Maynard said that while Oxford should be open to new businesses and new styles of business, the city needs to make sure it does not lose sight of what makes Oxford

unique. “Oxford and Lafayette County can support growth in retail, small business and large industry equally well,” he said. “As we move forward, the complication will be growing our community without growing away from the charm and tradition that is Oxford. I believe that this is crucial to
our success.” Jordan Bankhead, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, believes Maynard has what it takes to attract new business to the area. “Jon has really moved the ball forward since he arrived almost a year ago. Our efforts See MAYNARD, PAGE 4

The Oxford City Market, started last May, was created to combat food insecurity and to promote regional agricultural commerce alongside promoting local artists and musicians. The U.S. Department of Agriculture classifies Oxford as a food desert, meaning lowincome families have little access to groceries, and offered the city a $61,258 grant to create the Market, which is open every Tuesday from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. until Thanksgiving.

Morrison works to coordinate sustainable practices in sourcing produce. “When I receive an application from a local farm, I schedule a day to drive out there and look around to make sure that their crops are fresh and organic,” Morrison said. “We don’t

No room for discrimination in the workplace BY: CHRISTINE DICKASON email@example.com
Under federal law, people cannot be discriminated against in the workplace due to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability. Yet, in 29 states, you can be fired due to sexual orientation; in 33 states, you can be fired on the basis of gender identity. This type of discrimination forces LGBT individuals to hide their true selves for fear of being fired or refused employment on the basis of whom they love. One’s sexual orientation is completely irrelevant to one’s ability to successfully fulfill job requirements. Why should it matter if the lawyer representing you in court identifies as LGBT? Fortunately, there is a remedy to end this blatant, disgraceful form of discrimination: the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). On Monday night, the Senate took an important step in advancing ENDA, a bill that had not been considered since 1996. In a procedural vote that was necessary to overcome a possible filibuster, the Senate voted 61 to 30 to move the bill T H E D A I LY

to the floor for discussion. All Senate Democrats voted for the bill, and several Republicans joined them to help the bill overcome the key hurdle. A final vote is expected on Wednesday. So why would someone oppose ENDA? House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) reiterated one of the most common complaints about the bill this week. A spokesman for the congressman said, “The Speaker believes this legislation will increase frivolous litigation and cost American jobs, especially small business jobs.” This argument has been used against other bills seeking to eliminate discrimination; most notably, it was stated as the number-one reason that not a single Republican voted for the Paycheck Fairness Act of 2012. First, is this claim true? Will ENDA cause more “frivolous litigation”? Evidence suggests that it will not. A report released in July by the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that state-level laws that resemble ENDA had not significantly increased the number of complaints or litigations in

those states. Yet, this may not be enough to conclude that, if passed, this new federal law will not burden businesses. So, why don’t we ask leaders in the business community — some of Republicans’ most trusted advisees — what they think about ENDA? Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, wrote an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal, arguing that the law is, in fact, best for businesses. He wrote, “We’ve found that when people feel valued for who they are, they have the comfort and confidence to do the best work of their lives.” Cook is not alone. More than 100 major corporations have joined the Human Rights Campaign’s Business Coalition for Workplace Fairness. Additionally, 63 percent of small businesses support ENDA. Support for the bill extends beyond businesses. An article from The Washington Post reported that majorities in every single state support legislation that protects against discrimination in the workplace on the basis of sexual orientation — from 63 percent supporting in Missis-

sippi to 81 percent supporting in Massachusetts. This law goes beyond business. Our country draws strength from its incredibly diverse population. To discriminate is to deny the innate good of diversity and individuality. We, as a country, like to talk about being a place where rights are protected, individuality is embraced and equality is fundamental. Yet, in reality, we often fall short of these ideals. Workplace discrimination against LGBT individuals clearly denies that everyone is equal. The allowance of such discrimination promotes an idea that there is something about being gay that makes you less of a person, and therefore less of a qualified job candidate or employee. These ideas must be rejected if we are to be a society that truly values every individual as an important member of the community.

Socialized sticker shock BY: WHITNEY GREER email@example.com
Precipitated by a Supreme Court battle and a government shutdown, the dark cloud of Obamacare looming on the horizon has finally hit mainstream America where it hurts—the checkbook. The gridlock Obama’s pet policy has induced is only the beginning of the disaster the ironically named Affordable Care Act will wreak upon the U.S.’s already sickly economy. If you like your plan, you can keep it. Period. Sound familiar? Sounds like manure to the millions of Americans now losing their plans, as well as their physicians of choice, in the new healthcare marketplace. The falsehood guaranteeing people their ability to keep their current plan at its current price has been spoon-fed
to the American people relentlessly for months, and is a cornerstone of the liberal argument claiming Obamacare isn’t actually socialized medicine. As Christopher Conover, scholar and researcher at the American Enterprise Institute as well as at the Center for Health Policy & Inequalities Research at Duke University predicts, “Bottom line: of the 189 million Americans with private health insurance coverage…at least 129 million (68 percent) will not be able to keep their previous health care plan… the rest will retain their old plans but have to pay higher rates for Obama-care mandated bells and whistles.” Those bells and whistles he speaks of are maternity care on an elderly couple’s plan, or pediatric coverage on the plan of a single male in his mid-twenties. This is because Obamacare mandates not only that Americans get insured, but also that they get insured to the quality decided by the federal government. Over 15
million Americans are standing to completely lose their insurance because the plans that they chose, they paid for, and they liked have been deemed ill-suited for them by the all knowing nanny state America has become. In the realms of health care ‘you know what’s best for you’ has become ‘the government knows what’s best for you’. Obama’s comments, offered not the general public, but in his campaigner-in-chief fashion to his top financial backers at an Organization for Action meeting Wednesday evening reek of government paternalism. Addressing the blatant false narrative his administration offered on the health care bill he backtracked with, “If we had allowed old plans [to continue]… then we would have broken an even more important promise— making sure that Americans gain access to health care that doesn’t leave them one illness away from ruin.” Not only does this statement admit that the White House broke
a promise, however unimportant that promise and thus Obama deems his word, it assumes Americans are incapable of choosing health care plans that suit their lifestyles. These blanket requirements for health care plans are not only dumping Americans off of plans of their choice, but are also often raising premiums by rates of 100 percent or greater. Bare bones plans are more than sufficient for some Americans, and should they decide upon them who is the government to step in and demand they subscribe to fuller coverage? Ah, and here the real issue lies. In order for Obama to insure the current 47 million people estimated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to be uninsured, he must redistribute the cash flow in the insurance market. The same logic is behind the mandate to have health insurance. Obamacare requires Americans to load up on coverage that they do not need and what’s more do not want on their insurance plans,
as a means to dump the cash into the market necessary to cover the cost of insuring the millions who currently can’t afford or do not qualify for coverage. This concept is classified as wealth redistribution or socialism, in this case within the microcosm of the health insurance market that makes up a measly 18 percent of the entire U.S. GDP. Who else sees how this could possibly go wrong? Democrats will fight tooth and nail to see the sustainment of this program, as it is the very lifeblood of their liberalist ideal. It’s entitlement at its largest and most wide sweeping; insuring the uninsured, telling the public what is best for them, and turning no one away. The bleeding hearts of Washington in the process of realizing their naïve utopian ideal of healthcare are going to bleed the U.S. health market dry.

continued from page 1 fresh, clean food. Through a Community Supported Agriculture network offered by several farms that sell their produce at Oxford City Market, individuals buy a timeshare to receive fresh groceries throughout the year. “The city market can be a form of CSA for the local farmers,” Morrison said. “It gives the organic, sustainable farmers access to the community and the local market.” Yoknapatawpha Bottoms Farm is one such farm with both CNG and CSA status. Nestled eight miles outside of Oxford, the farm was founded by Douglas Davis, professor in The University of Mississippi’s School of Education. “I bought the land when I arrived at the university in 2007, and I met with people who wanted to farm,” Davis said. “The farm is for the younger people who are interested in producing fresher crops, which helps the community and the land.” Betsy Chapman, a local artist who works with Yoknapa-
tawpha Bottoms Farm, was selling sweet potatoes, turnip greens, arugula and green onions and butter beans with sweet ‘n’ spicy peppers at the Oxford City Market. “There are no synthetic chemicals or pesticides on our crops,” Chapman said. “If we see a bug, we squish it!” The farm instead uses insects such as ladybugs to eat other insects. “Some bugs really are good for us,” Chapman said. The environment is benefiting from Yoknapatawpha Bottoms Farm’s proximity as well. “We have a smaller carbon footprint,” Chapman said. “This is because we are only a few miles away in Water Valley, unlike Kroger, who ship their tomatoes from other countries. We do not waste as much fossil fuel as commercial grocery stores do.” The farm’s strict avoidance of pesticides and genetically engineered seeds creates community health in hand with environmental stability. “The grocery store food tastes old; they’re not as fresh as our food,” Chapman said. “Our food is not polluted and good for everyone and the
land.” Mississippi Sustainable Agriculture Network, an Oxfordbased statewide organization for small farmers, began last January to connect local farmers and provides research on growing sustainable, organic crops. Program coordinator Daniel Doyle believes in the capacity of the organization to make a difference. “Our lives revolve around convenience,” Doyle said. “People don’t go by what’s best for our health or for our land but by what’s convenient to grow, harvest and buy. People shy away from difficult things such as local farming, but we want to reach out and show that organic farming can be done.” Now nearing its one-year anniversary, the agriculture network is expanding. The organization has six demonstration farms and helps other farms transition into more organic and business-efficient farming. “To the people who are looking for a purpose,” Doyle said, “I can’t think of anything better than providing healthy food for your community.”

to cultivate small businesses and the entrepreneurial spirit in Oxford have never been better,” Bankhead said. “Jon understands that we need to attract new business to our area, but in order to be sustainable, we have to build business from within. I think he will be very effective as our new CEO.” Maynard said the foundation and the chamber could not survive without the direct support from the city of Oxford, Lafayette County, North Mississippi Electric Power Association and The University of Mississippi. “The last part of the puzzle is our membership in both the chamber and EDF,” Maynard said. “Without the support of individuals and businesses in our community, we would not be relevant or helpful to any-

one.” Hipp said that being a city with a prestigious university results in a high quality of place for both the city and university. “Oxford as a university town has all the bells and whistles a town our size without a university would not have,” he said. “Many other communities of our size do not have their share of services and the degree of professional occupations that we have. I do not know of many communities our size that have our attractiveness for both business and visitors.”

A Place for Oxford Musicians email@example.com
Oxford Sessions is an online talent showcase that emphasizes the use of social media and word of mouth to garner attention for the abundance of talent in the Oxford area. Its mission is to provide a platform and an audience for musicians who might otherwise not have a chance to be heard, but there is a twist. Similar to the popular MTV show “Unplugged,” all performances are acoustic. Co-founder Danny Klimitz sums it up succinctly on the Oxford Sessions website: “The premise is quite simple, music when broken down to its raw and organic form would not only be fantastic to hear but inspiring to see.” Oxford Sessions was started by Klimitz and Gabriel Scala, who were soon followed by videographer Brian Flint and sound engineer Tim Burkhead. These four come together with local musicians to produce extremely highquality music videos that highlight the raw power of an unplugged performance. Emerging artists and established musicians alike are featured on the roster of Oxfordsessions.com, from the legendary Johnny Win-
ter and the renowned Oak Ridge Boys to University of Mississippi students such as Will Echols, Buki Alabi and the well-known Rebels King Kobraz, who drop the drum machine and auto-tune in exchange for acoustic guitars, in addition to many other astounding musicians. This website functions as automatic promotional material for those who want to spread the word about their musical presence. Ole Miss student Buki Alabi said it has been extremely useful for describing her music to other people. “People would ask me, ‘What does your music sound like?’ and since I obviously don’t have a guitar attached to me at all times, it was always difficult,” Alabi said. “After I did my performance with Oxford Sessions, I could just point to the website and say, see for yourself.” This type of free publicity and exposure is incredibly useful to emerging musicians. So Oxford Sessions is a place for musicians to market themselves, a place for indie music fans to find the newest and best music Oxford has to offer, as well as a place for those who just want to support local artists and want this town to retain the cultural status that makes
it unique. They can’t do it alone, though. The folks at Oxford Sessions rely on the average person to help get the word out about their website and their mission. There are a variety of ways to get connected to see all the great musicians that they have to offer. Obviously stop by Oxfordsessions. com, but for up-to-the-minute updates on their latest projects, new musicians and upcoming performances, follow them on Twitter or like their Facebook page. Musicians can contact Oxford Sessions to set up a shoot, and fans are welcome to contact them with any questions or concerns or just to lend a voice of support to the great work Oxford Sessions is doing. As Oxfordsessions.com states, “We can’t do this without you.”

McCalla for the team lead. McCalla did not improve on last season’s total of 13, but she said a change in her role on the team, not in attitude or aggression, is the culprit. This year, Kentucky’s offense is led by two juniors, Arin Gilliland and Stuart Pope, who have 11 and 10 goals on the year, respectively. The two teams are comparable on the defensive side of the ball as well. Ole Miss is ranked fifth in the conference in goals allowed, with just 20 goals finding their way into the Rebels’ nets this year. Kentucky, seventh in the conference, has allowed 23 goals this season. Ole Miss junior goalkeeper Kelly McCormick has six shutouts on the season, while Kentucky keeper Kayla King has five. The winner of tonight’s matchup should already know who its next opponent will be before taking the field tonight. No. 1 seeded Florida will face No. 8 seeded Arkansas at 5 p.m. in Orange Beach, and the winner of that game will face the winner of Ole Miss vs. Kentucky Friday at 4 p.m. Ole Miss and Kentucky last met in 2012, a game the Rebels won 2-0 in Oxford. The Rebels and Wildcats are scheduled for kickoff at 7:30 p.m. For continuing coverage of Ole Miss soccer, follow @thedm_sports on Twitter.
1. Ole Miss shouldn’t worry about the pass versus Arkansas Former Texas coach Darrell Royal, who passed away in 2012, once said, “Three things can happen when you pass and two of ‘em are bad.” I’m sure Royal and Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema would’ve gotten along swimmingly. Bielema’s Razorbacks currently rank last in the league in pass offense with just 144.1 yards through the air per game. Against South Carolina on Oct. 12, Arkansas’s passing attack was especially anemic, as the team totaled only 30 yards in that category. So, Ole Miss defensive coordinator Dave Wommack probably won’t go to sleep Friday night worrying about how his secondary will hold up against the Razorbacks’ aerial assault. On the flip side, Arkansas ranks third in the Southeastern Conference in rushing (211.2 yard per game), so expect the Rebels to commit an uncanny number of defenders to the box on Saturday morning

in an attempt to quell the Razorbacks’ success on the ground. 2. SEC Heisman Watch Here’s a look at the guys from the SEC who I think should be under consideration for the Heisman Trophy: Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M): Manziel is having an even better season than last year, but the Aggies’ loss to Auburn in October did major damage to his chances of a Heisman repeat. Mike Evans (Texas A&M): Evans had 279 yards receiving against the vaunted ‘Bama D in September and hasn’t stopped producing since then. A.J. McCarron (Alabama): McCarron’s not just a game manager, he’s a playmaker for the topranked Crimson Tide. Mike Davis (South Carolina): Davis, the engine that makes the Gamecocks’ offense go, quietly leads the SEC with 1,058 rushing yards. 3. Mettenberger’s struggles a concern as Tigers take on Crimson Tide Before the Ole Miss game, it
looked like LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger had turned the corner in terms of becoming an elite college passer after a lessthan-stellar couple of years on the Tigers’ roster. But Mettenberger threw three interceptions against the Rebels and then followed that up with a pair of picks against lowly Furman. Before those five picks, Mettenberger had thrown only two interceptions through the first five games of the year. It appears he’s regressed to the mean, and that’s not good with the Tigers headed to Tuscaloosa this weekend. 4. Prayers for Dak and family This column is routinely filled with stupid jokes, off-the-mark prognostications and downright immaturity, but for once, I’ll get a little bit serious. Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott lost his mother, Peggy, on Sunday morning after a long battle with cancer. It’s important that Ole Miss fans forget about the whole rivalry thing for a little while and throw their support behind Mr. Prescott, who’s dealing with something he shouldn’t have to at such a young age. Dak, prayers go out to you, sir. 5. Paul’s Week 10 SEC Picks Alabama vs. LSU: The Crimson Tide claim a closer-than-expected 24-21 victory over the Tigers, setting the stage for the most relevant

Iron Bowl in years. Arkansas vs. Ole Miss: Arkansas and #BERT Bielema haven’t won a game since mid-September, and that won’t be changing this weekend as the Rebels get bowl-eligible with a 35-17 win over the Razorbacks. Auburn vs. Tennessee: Vols freshman quarterback Josh Dobbs is studying to become a rocket scientist. Really. Unfortunately, that won’t help him on Saturday as the Tigers run past the Vols by a score of 38-14. Florida vs. Vanderbilt: Florida’s offense is about as effective as taking a knife to a gun fight — actually it’s about as effective as taking a super soaker to a gun fight. I’ll take the ‘Dores 24-20 in a slight upset over Florida. Georgia vs. Appalachian State: Hey! It’s that team that upset Michigan that one time. Sorry App State, there won’t be any déjà vu this weekend because you’re terrible — Georgia 56-7 over the Mountaineers. Kentucky vs. Missouri: This game is tailor-made for those who like seeing super good teams beat up on super bad teams. The Tigers tear apart the Wildcats by a score of 48-14. Mississippi State vs. Texas A&M: Johnny Manziel and a potent Aggies offensive attack cash out early and often against the Bulldogs’ D en route to a 51-24 victory over their foe.

Rebels prepare for ‘grind’ it out’ Arkansas offense
Soccer begins SEC Tournament

The Ole Miss Rebels (5-3, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) will be faced with a different challenge this Saturday when taking on SEC West foe Arkansas. With many college teams adopting the spread look, it has become somewhat unconventional to see a smash-mouth team that likes to run the ball as much as the Razorbacks (3-6, 0-5 SEC) do. Arkansas ranks third in the conference in rushing yards per game with 211.2, in contrast to a struggling passing game, which ranks last in the conference averaging just 144.1 yards per contest. “That is for sure what they depend upon,” Freeze said of the Razorback rushing attack. “Not that they can’t throw it, I think their tight end is going to be a real special player and the receivers
have played well as of late. They know who they want to be no question. They control the clock so much. They are such a scary team because they run it so well.” Arkansas’ backfield is led by freshman Alex Collins who is averaging 98.8 yards a game, which ranks fourth in the conference. He has run for just under 900 yards on the year and four touchdowns. “Every week you face a really good running back in the league, and he’s no different,” Ole Miss defensive coordinator Dave Wommack said of Collins. “I think he is a great jump cutter and has unbelievable vision. He’ll cut to either side of the box and outside, and I think he just does a tremendous job. That’s why they’ve got the rushing yards, he’s a good football player with great vision.” Sophomore linebacker Denzel
Nkemdiche also believes that the Arkansas running game is going to be a key factor in Saturday’s matchup and that the Rebels emphasis defensively will be stopping it. “From today, it seemed kind of complicated,” Nkemdiche said of the Razorback offense. “But, they have a great running game. We have to stop the run. That’s our main emphasis of Saturday.” The defense will also receive a few extra healthy bodies this week after a the team was off last week. Both Denzel and freshman defensive end Robert Nkemdiche are expected to be back, as well as many more who were nursing injuries. “It feels great to have all our teammates and everybody there ready for Saturday,” Nkemdiche said. “And to have everybody ready to go against Arkansas feels great.”

After ending the regular season with a 5-1 rout of in-state rival Mississippi State, the Ole Miss soccer team (14-4-2, 7-3-1 Southeastern Conference) will begin postseason play in the SEC Tournament tonight against Kentucky. The Kentucky Wildcats (13-5-1, 7-4-0 SEC) controlled their own destiny for tournament seeding heading into the final game of the regular season, but a 2-1 loss to South Carolina on Halloween night dropped them to the fifth seed in this year’s tournament.

win would have placed them in the third seed, where they would have faced Georgia instead of the Rebels. Although the two teams did not meet in the regular season, the Rebels hold a slight advantage in the sense that they don’t have to look hard for someone who can score. The Rebel’s offense is led by seniors Rafaelle Souza and Mandy McCalla, who are second and fifth in goals in the conference, respectively. Souza’s total of 18 goals on the year is five better than last year’s total, when she tied with
