Malco’s Oxford Commons attracting students, residents since opening BY MALLORY BAILEY firstname.lastname@example.org
Malco Theatres recently opened a new location on the east side of Oxford on Sisk Avenue. Oxford Commons, which opened on Oct. 11, has a total of eight screens equipped with stadium seating similar to the Malco Oxford Studio Cinema located on Jackson Avenue. “We are really excited about the opening of the new theater,” manager Evan Brian said. “It gives the people around here another option to see the latest movies with even more features than before.” Offering a full bar, an expanded lobby and leather seating, the Oxford Commons theater caters more to the adult crowd. “The new theater is under the same people as the Jackson Avenue location,” said Jonathan Balsingame, an Oxford Commons employee. “The theater on Jackson is more of a family theater now, so it will be nice to have two different locations.” The new Sisk Avenue location has been doing well after a month in business, accord-
ing to Brian. “It has had a good amount of people show up, but it is not extremely busy yet,” Brian said. “Once ‘The Hobbit’ and some other big movies come out, we expect it to pick up some more.” The new features in the Oxford Commons theater are drawing in the college crowd as well. “We have a lot of college students who are starting to go to the Oxford Commons theater,” Balsingame said. “They are taking advantage of all of the new things added to that theater for the adult age group.” Oxford Commons offers movies starting in the early afternoon and lasts until night showings. “On the weekends Oxford Commons is open for lunch and afternoon movies until late night,” Brian said. “During the week, the late afternoon movies and night showings are more popular rather than early shows.” The new theater has drawn praise from University of Mississippi students satisfied with their experience at Oxford Commons. “I actually like the new de-

sign of the theater as well as the fact that it is cleaner,” said Emily Morris, a junior hospitality management major. “I’ve seen ‘Captain Phillips’ like three times there, and it was awesome.”
The new location has provided several other Ole Miss students with a new venue to see the latest films popular among the college crowd. “It was actually really nice compared to other theaters
I have been to,” said Shelley Moss, a junior art major. “The refreshments with the new bar and comfortable seats are definitely a reason to go check it out.”

Equal rights about more than marriage BY ADAM BLACKWELL email@example.com
PATRICIA THOMPSON director and faculty adviser
While society grapples with the concept of marriage in the twenty-first century, many may not realize that the equal rights movement is about more than the right to marry. Or, at least, it should be. From a historical point of view, the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s focused on multiple forms of equality, as well. While civil rights leaders fought for the right to vote, they also fought for many other rights and privileges not afforded to minorities at the

time. In my opinion, that’s one large factor that made the Civil Rights Movement so successful - it focused on a variety of issues and energized a large group of Americans who were passionate about different issues. Today’s civil rights movement has focused so much energy on the right to marry, and I think many people forget about the other struggles in the LGBT community. While the LGBT community and its allies fight for the right to marry, there are many other struggles we must pursue. That equal sign that has come to symbolize the movement stands for so much more than marriage. It stands for equality in the workplace. It stands for the ability to visit

your sick partner in the hospital. It stands for the ability to file taxes jointly. It stands for the right to adopt children and offer them a nurturing and loving home. Most importantly though, that equal sign represents the ability to feel comfortable in public - to be who you are openly and freely. Last week, the United States Senate propelled the equality movement forward. Through a bipartisan vote, they passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act - a bill granting workplace protection to people based on their sexual orientation. Many people don’t realize that no federal law exists to protect workers based on sexual orientation. Only twenty-one states

and the District of Columbia have their own workplace protection laws for people based on sexual orientation. The future of the bill is clouded, though, as Speaker John Boehner threatens to keep the bill from a vote in the House. Because, apparently, he and thed Tea Party aren’t too worried about LGBT workers in America. Speaker Boehner suggests that such a bill would lead to many unneeded lawsuits. He suggests it would be a job-killer. Speaker Boehner is playing politics with innocent American lives, and he is halting equality to play political games.

It’s all about Greek to me BY SUMMER WIGLEY email@example.com
An individual recently informed me that my Greek organization is not “top tier.” Imagine my shock at this, because I do not want to think anything negative about my organization. I could not help but wonder why my organization was not considered “top tier” and what made other organizations hold that supposed title. My first thought was, “What exactly does “top tier” even mean?” I decided to dissect the word and understand the definition. According to dictionary.com, the word “tier” means one of a series of rows or ranks rising one behind or above another. I am assuming that the title signifies that one Greek organization is above another, essentially better and most liked. My next thought was, “What makes a sorority top tier?” Would it be how much money the members individually have, how beautiful its members are, the reputation the organization upholds as a whole, how well the mem-
bers dress (assuming big Tshirts and Norts are out of the equation) or the awards and titles earned throughout the school year? In the month that I have been a Greek woman, I have been exposed to more types of individuals with different attitudes, values and decorum. Because of my occupation, Greek women from all of the different organizations surround me daily. Each of these women is unlike the other. Each of these women is capable of providing strengths to her individual organization. As a member of the Greek community, I find it true that all of the different organizations should grow together as one for the betterment of the world. Each organization makes a difference, whether big or small or whether members are aware of it or not. Take a closer look at all of the great men and women who are Greek who have made a difference in the world. Seventy-six percent of U.S. senators are Greek, Condoleezza Rice is a member of a sorority, Martin Luther King Jr. was a member of a fraternity, all
but two presidents since 1825 have been Greek and the first female astronaut was in a sorority. The list of these amazing men and women goes on and on. I have friends who attend universities throughout the United States who have chosen to go through the Greek process at their respective universities; however, all of them tell me that Ole Miss’ recruitment and Greek life is unlike any other. Why is that? With recruitment fresh on my mind, I recall the walks to different houses, many different outfit changes and witnessing tears after a woman received the list of houses each day. I have many friends in each of the Greek organizations with unique personalities who contribute individually to their respective organizations. So what makes our recruitment so different compared to the rest? I believe the issue comes from a woman’s preconceived notions about each organization, including the stereotypes. There were many times when I would hear conversations between potential new members about which

to even vote on this law challenges that assumption. The equal rights movement strengthens when it focuses on a variety of issues, like workplace protections. The equal rights movement is stronger when it focuses on building relationships and having discussions regarding whatever people

sorority was “the best” or that she “just had to be a part of or would transfer.” I did not understand how these women knew what made an organization the “best” without having been a member of one. I was given the best advice ever: Keep an open mind throughout the process. I did just that. I embraced every sorority as if it were an open book. Keeping an open mind made the recruitment process less stressful because I was going to end where I was meant to be, where I could have 300 plus sisters, where I would have some of the best experiences in my life and where I could make a difference. So I’m calling BS on the significance of being a “top-tier” sorority. Each organization is comprised of a few mean girls, a few who seem to be perfect girls, a few nerdy girls and so on. But so what? Each woman contributes to the empowerment of her organization. In order for a sorority to thrive, there must be love, compassion, support and a desire to continue on the ideals and traditions of our founding sisters.
It should not matter where you come from, what you look like or even how others perceive you. What is important is that you, along with your sisters, continue to thrive with your organization.The bonds you have, the lifelong friendships you make, the causes your philanthropies support and the love shared are far more important and valuable than a “top-tier” stamp on your organization. Being Greek is not having an exorbitant amount of Tshirts or chapter every week. Being Greek is being a part of something bigger than oneself. I hope that one day the preconceived notions of which organization is this or that will fade away. All of these women are beautiful, intelligent and powerful and will make a difference in their individual organizations. Now that is an organization that I am so humbled to be a part of.
are most passionate about. If you’re passionate about workplace rights, call your legislator; call your friends; call your family. As we move into the future, I hope the equal rights movement will focus more attention on other issues besides marriage. Because, one day, like it or not, our fight will be as successful as Martin Luther King, John Lewis, Fannie Lou Hamer, Medgar Evers, and the many others who fought
for civil rights. And by focusing on a large group of dynamic issues, we can make that success even closer.

house visits. Then, in phase two, meetings are required every other weeks, but include either in-patient or intensive out-patient treatment for a combined 100 hours of therapy. After 18 months, the remaining phases require less frequent visits: only twice a month for phase three and once a month for phase four. Members are not required to appear in court during the final phase, but are still subject to random urinalysis screenings each week. Progress can be derailed at any time with a failure to pass the urinalysis test or attend the required Narcotics Anonymous/Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. This can result in a two month addition to any phase. Offenses other than a felony conviction for driving under the influence may be expunged from a member’s record after he or she successfully completes the program.

nonviolent criminals out of the penitentiary, drug court also has a serious economic impact. Howorth estimates that an average inmate costs the state between $30 and $40 per day, while drug court fees average out to be only $3 per day per person. The average three-year graduate of drug court will cost the state $3,240, while a prisoner serving an equivalent sentence would cost roughly $37,800. Howorth said he sees the overall benefit as something much greater than a dollar number. “To return someone to a healthy life, so they can work, maybe get their children out of custody, if that’s the case, and pay taxes, has a significant impact on society,” Howorth said.

sometimes this is the only thing that works,” she said. In Fondren’s experience, older members tend to be more able and ready to make a change in their lives than younger offenders. “Sometimes I have to show tough love,” she said. Although some first-time offender addicts are admitted into the program, the majority of participants are multiple offenders, according to Fondren. Individuals who fail to successfully complete the program in a five-year period are required to serve the sentenced amount of prison time for the crime they committed. Students from The University of Mississippi have benefited from the program as well, according to Fondren. “Since the early stages of this drug court, there have been Ole Miss students involved,” Fondren said. Records show that binge drinking, often combined with prescription drug abuse, is usually the culprit for the younger members of the program. Until recently, Lafayette County held the highest percentage of drug court cases. Out of the 180 currently active cases, 50 are from Lafayette County. They are handled by five state employees, one of which is Drug Court Field

Larry Brown remembered with literary landmark, erected at Oxford Public Library BY CLARA TURNAGE Scturna1@go.olemiss.edu
Last night the First Regional Library held a spectacle. There was a laughing, eager crowd in the lobby making far more noise than the usual regulations would allow. Children were running about with their parents not far behind, cooing them to quiet. Above the guitarist strumming in the corner, the boisterous noise of an anticipating horde filled the hall. This was the gathering that Larry Brown’s literary landmark dedication inspired. “When we were kids, the first thing we were given was a library card by our dad,” Leigh Anne Corbin, Larry Brown’s daughter said. “It was so important to him because, when he was a child, they didn’t have a lot of money and there wasn’t a lot of things to do but the one thing my grandmother would do is take him to the library. And they fell in love with it, and that’s where it all started.” Larry Brown passed away in 2004, however, about the crowd one could hear murmurs of how
much they missed him and the vast influence he had in each person’s life. During the speeches at the highlight of the event more than a few men and women wiped their eyes. A man like Larry Brown, however, is not forgotten. Brown, author of six critically acclaimed novels, loving father, firemen, carpenter, house-painter, hay-hauler and Oxford legend was honored with the dedication of a ceremonial plaque that will be placed at the front of the Oxford First Regional Library. “It’s going to go outside so people can see it anytime day or night,” Laura Beth Walker, head librarian said. “I really want it to be accessible to the whole community at all times.” The family of Brown was excited for his work to be recognized in such a wonderful and loving way. “He was so excited when he got to speak here that last time,” Leigh Ann said. “It just means so much to our family that this all stems from a small child with a love of the library and reading.”
The beginning of the ceremony consisted of men and women sharing their favorite experiences of Larry with each other. “My favorite memory of him is that every time he spoke he had a way of looking at you, and he would lean in close to hear what you say because what you had to say was so important” Andrea Brown-Ross, Brown’s niece recalled. The library expressed their thanks as well when Laura Beth Walker stated, “I am thankful for it because of all that Larry did for Lafayette County, Oxford and this library. He gave the keynote address for the addition in 1997, right there in the foyer when I just started working here.” The library was a favorite place for Larry, he spent much of his life wandering amongst the shelves exploring the worlds between the pages. He is said to have found his greatest inspiration in the novels and atmosphere there. “He had a passion for reading and for literature, and I truly think that this is where it started, with the library,” Corbin stated.

Elevators or tower of terror? BY PRISCILLA FLOWERS @email@example.com
The University of Mississippi is known for many great features. The athletic departments, the great academics, the faculty that goes above and beyond what is necessary and, of course, the legendary Grove, but one thing we can’t seem to get a handle on is our elevators. It’s no secret that living in a residence hall won’t be as plush as the presidential suite at the Peabody Hotel, but some features should be expected in any
living arrangement. Working elevators are one of those. As a freshman on move-in day, with no prior experience living in a dorm and plenty of dorm horror stories in mind, it was unnerving for me to discover that one of the elevators in my building was already not functioning. You can imagine the chaos on move-in day was only multiplied by the lack of proper transportation for the new students and basically all of their belongings. The elevator in question did
not even start working until well into the semester. Soon after, the other two stopped working temporarily and only one was functioning for a time, causing a long wait time for students with no other way to get upstairs. “It’s inconvenient and once they do work, it’s scary to ride in because you are constantly worried they are going to break down,” said Hailey Thompson, Martin Hall resident. “It’s a hassle and makes getting to my dorm very difficult.”
Not only is it difficult for the residents on the upper floors who would rather not take 11 flights of stairs, but in some residence halls the stairs become locked at a certain time and there is no other way to access the rooms. Broken-down elevators are only half the struggle. I’d rather not be allowed on an elevator than get on one that is unsafe. Some of the elevators around campus should be down for repair, but instead students are getting on them and getting
trapped or being dropped like the Tower of Terror. In the Kincannon residence hall, the elevator doors have to be pulled shut by the occupants. “They’re pretty terrible,” said Ned Kemble, Kincannon Hall resident. “We have to manually close them to shut every time. Sometimes they open early, too.” So why are these metal death traps still running, and how can we get them to feel safe again?

Emerson captains a tight-knit group of seniors that includes forward Rafaelle Souza and midfielder/forward Mandy McCalla, who are Ole Miss’ top two goal scorers. Junior goalkeeper Kelly McCormick wants to win the last home game for the seniors. “I think we owe it to the seniors,” McCormick said. “They’ve worked really hard and led this team and this program to greatness.” The Rebels host Southwestern Athletic Conference champion Jackson State (10-9-2).

Still, when you turn the tape on, you don’t see any drop off. He hardly practiced any this week. I’m very fortunate to coach a guy like that. “He’s one of those guys that doesn’t come along very often. You’re just excited to coach a guy like that. He’s unbelievably talented.

201 BISHOP HALL 662.915.5503
Arkansas stuffed the Ole Miss running game. Other than the Alabama game, this was the worst rushing performance of the season; 103 yards is all Ole Miss could muster on 38 carries, or 2.71 yards per carry. It was the eighth time under Hugh Freeze that Ole Miss was held under 4 yards per carry. Ole Miss is 2-6 in those games, with both wins coming over Arkansas. Simply, Ole Miss struggles to win if the running game is shut down. The two wins over Arkansas were pulled off because junior quarterback Bo Wallace had extremely efficient days. Wallace completed over 78 percent of his passes in both matchups, which are his two best marks in SEC games. In the other six games that Ole Miss has failed to rush for 4 yards per carry, Wallace’s completion percentage is 56 percent. When the run game struggles, defenses don’t have to honor the run and can properly match up with the weapons Ole Miss has at receiver. Wallace and the passing game are at their peak when defenses are overly concerned with the run. There are big plays to be had off of play action if the defense bites on it, and a perfect example came when Wallace found senior wideout Ja-Mes Logan for a 75-yard touchdown. Wallace faked a handoff to sophomore running back I’Tavius Mathers, which drew two Arkansas linebackers closer to the line of scrimmage. Then, Wallace turned to freshman wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, who was getting ready for a screen pass. Wallace’s pump fake forced the third linebacker and a cornerback to commit to Treadwell, while Logan ran deep.

This allowed Logan to get one-on-one coverage down the field. Logan won that battle, and Wallace dropped a perfect pass into Logan’s arms. Another key to this play was the protection Wallace received. No one is pressuring Wallace when he gets ready to throw. Ole Miss cannot carry out fakes if the offensive line doesn’t provide ample time for Wallace. On Logan’s touchdown the offensive line, plus junior Nick Parker at tight end, made the play possible. Ole Miss was fortunate that Arkansas was still worried about stopping the run despite the struggles the Rebels were having. Arkansas did a tremendous job of hitting Ole Miss running backs at the line of scrimmage and bottling up those potential big plays. Of the 39 Rebel carries, two were sacks and two were kneeldowns. Eliminating those, Ole Miss had 35 carries, 14 of which went for 2 yards or less. One of those was a 1-yard touchdown from Barry Brunetti. That’s 37
percent of Ole Miss rushes that got stuffed. That can’t happen against Missouri or Mississippi State. Missouri is holding opponents to 3.33 yards per carry, which is second to Alabama in the SEC. Mississippi State is allowing 4.22 yards per carry, but it held Texas A&M and Auburn to their worst rushing games of the season, at 2.76 and 3.33 yards per carry, respectively. The only SEC team that Arkansas has held to fewer yards per carry than Ole Miss is Florida. Arkansas posted its secondmost tackles for loss against Ole Miss with seven. And their run defense has not been stellar all season; Arkansas is allowing the fourth-most yards per carry in the SEC, which makes the rushing struggles a bigger concern. If Ole Miss gets hit at the line of scrimmage that often in the final two conference games and in turn rushes for fewer than 4 yards per carry, they’ll likely be finishing the season with two losses.

Ole Miss looks to improve bowl Lady Rebs to host standing against Troy BY DAVID COLLIER firstname.lastname@example.org
Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze was absent from Monday’s weekly press conference due to “personal business,” but Rebel offensive line coach Matt Luke stepped in and spoke to the media Monday afternoon. “Coming off of the Arkansas victory, we’re very, very excited about being bowl eligible,” Luke said. “We’re excited for our players and our fans. Being bowl eligible two years in a row is part of our goals. I don’t think we’re satisfied, but obviously very excited about that. In some areas of the game we maybe played a little bit sluggish (against Arkansas). The guys stepped up and made enough plays to win. As you guys know, any victory in the SEC is a good victory. We’re very, very proud of that.” Luke said Ole Miss came out of Saturday’s win over Arkansas “relatively healthy,” and there are only a couple of players in danger of missing the Rebels’ game against Troy, which is scheduled for an 11 a.m. kickoff Saturday. Freshman defensive end John Youngblood was injured early against the Razorbacks and is questionable for this weekend, according to Luke. Sophomore safety Chief Brown is probable after getting a stinger Saturday. Senior running back Jeff Scott did not play again Saturday due to a bone spur in his back which
is causing a nerve to flare up in his leg, but Luke said Scott will try to practice this week and they’ll see if he will be available this weekend. Now, Ole Miss turns its attention toward the Troy Trojans, who come into this matchup with a record of 5-5. “We’re excited about playing Troy,” Luke said. “I’ve got a lot of respect for Troy and Coach (Larry) Blakeney. He always has a great program and does a great job. He’s got a tremendous senior quarterback in (Corey) Robinson. He’s very, very good. They’ve got a good receiver and running back. They’re good on defense. They’re impressive. They play a lot of man coverage and blitz a bunch. “We’re going to have our work cut out for us and have to do a really, really good job to beat those guys.” With Troy coming to town, this will be another week where the Rebels are jumping in and out of Southeastern Conference play. A lot of times, that type of schedule can make it hard for a team to focus on each opponent week in and week out, but Luke doesn’t think that will be an issue for Ole Miss. “We have to focus on us and getting better,” Luke said. “That’s the main thing. Again, we do want to finish going up. To do that, each game has to be an improvement. There are certainly a lot of areas for improvement from the Arkan-

sas game. That’s a good thing. It’s always good to teach them things coming off a win, especially coming off a win inconference. Our goal is to focus on us and to get better. We want to finish these last three games playing our best football.”

After finishing the regular season tied for the most wins in Ole Miss soccer history, the No. 22 nationally ranked Rebels got more good news Monday when they found out they would host their first-round game of the NCAA Tournament on Friday. It is the first time in program history that Ole Miss will host an NCAA Tournament game and the fifth-ever bid to play in the prestigious tournament. The Rebels will play host to in-state foe Jackson State. “At our place under the lights,” Ole Miss head coach Matt Mott said. “That’s an awesome feeling and an awesome place to play.” Ole Miss (15-5-2) is coming off of a loss to No. 5 Florida in the semifinals of the Southeastern Conference Tournament, but the Rebels are looking forward to making a run in the postseason. The players were filled with excitement as they watched the selection show from the Diamond Club at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field, but for senior midfielder Erin Emerson, each game going forward could mean her career coming to an end. “It’s bittersweet,” Emerson said. “It could be my last game; it might not be.” See SOCCER, PAGE 7
