Large city tourism slacking, small town increasing


Festival goers pack the Square during the Double Decker Arts Festival Saturday, April 26.



xford tourists are not shy to pull out their pocketbooks. Tourism revenue is skyrocketing in the college town, but larger U.S. cities are watching total visitor spending stall. Across the nation, small town tourism is on the rise. Oxford is one of the many small towns in the U.S. seeing rapid growth in

number of visitors, visitor spending and tourism tax revenue annually. “(Tourism) has constantly increased each year,” Visit Oxford Director Mary Allyn Hedges said. “With all the new infrastructure and the four new hotels breaking ground this year, it just goes to show the need and demand for all of our visitors is huge, especially those that come to Oxford for the university and literary and culinary reasons.”

Oxford collected $2,138,144 from the food and beverage tax last fiscal year, marking the first time the tax reached the $2 million mark. In addition, the city’s hotel/motel tax revenue increased 6 percent from the previous year. Total visitor spending reached a record $113.7 million, an 8 percent increase from the previous year, according to Visit Oxford. New York City only saw a 5 percent increase in total visitor spending, according to NYC & Company.

The number of total visitors to New York City is increasing, with a projected 55.8 million visitors traveling there this year. The city has seen a 15 percent increase in visitors since 2008, according to the city’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organization, NYC & Company. How much money these tourists are spending, however, is not increasing as rapidly. In 2010, former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg set a target of $70

billion in economic impact based on tourism annually, according to a July 2014 report by The New York Times. NYC & Company has projected tourism’s economic impact will reach $61.1 billion by the end of the year, still $9 billion shy of Bloomberg’s 2015 goal. Tourism economic impact is also slowing in Chicago and Los Angeles. Both cities saw only slight increases in lodging occupancy last year. Chicago recorded


UM Nutrition Clinic to host diabetes support group MAGGIE MCDANIEL

The University of Mississippi Nutrition Clinic has launched a new support group for students, faculty and community members who are living with type 1 or 2 diabetes. Registered dietitian Hillary Ake came up with the idea of the support group, after finding out a close friend of hers was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes before entering college. Ake saw how difficult it was for her friend to transition to a diabetic lifestyle while living

on a college campus. “She often talked about how frustrating it was because classmates and friends didn’t really comprehend the huge life change she was going through,” Ake said. “Sometimes she just wanted to vent and we could listen sympathetically, but we can’t fully appreciate how difficult life as a diabetic is.” Ake knew, like her friend, many students with diabetes struggled with food options on campus, embarrassment and shyness by having to count carbs and dose insulin around new friends or in class.

With the support of Janie Cole, UM clinic director and instructor in nutrition and hospitality management, Ake wanted to start a support group for those with diabetes. “I wanted to create a group where students, staff and community members can find fellowship with other diabetics,” Ake said. “I want them to be able to share experiences, communicate their challenges, and learn from each other.” The goal of the group is for members to share their experiences and interact with one another.

The group will also discuss topics pertaining to diabetes based on members needs and ideas. Ake hopes to have speakers from multiple disciplines from pharmacy to psychology to endocrinologists to discuss a variety of topics. November is National Diabetes Awareness month and according to the Mississippi Department of Health, Mississippi was ranked second in the nation in 2012 for overall diabetes prevalence, with over 276,000 adults in the state having type 2 diabetes. Cole is excited to bring National

Diabetes Awareness month to the university and cannot wait for the support group to begin. “Awareness is key to any disease,” Cole said. “There are so many Mississippians walking around with high blood sugars and they do not realize it. Your body adjusts to feeling bad and you just keep going not realizing that something is wrong.” The first group meeting will be held today at 5:15 p.m. in Lenoir Hall room 101. Following meetings will be held the second Wednesday of each month.

Emotion, according to Stedman’s Medical Dictionary is “an intense mental state that arises subjectively rather than through conscious effort and is often accompanied by physiological changes.” We learn about our feelings at a very young age, through experience and formal education. Pre- and elementary schools are full of coloring sheets that display faces contorted into various expressions, large blocky letters naming the particular emotion. Happy, sad, afraid. These are pretty basic concepts, and for the most part, by the time we’re adults, we have a pretty good handle on them, or at least can usually recognize them with a certain degree of accuracy. So why is it that when it comes time to attributing emotions to one side of the (obviously useless) gender binary, all the blame lands THE DAILY

squarely on women? I chose the word “blame” intentionally, because when it comes to women, emotions are always counted as a liability. The number of times that women are depicted as “emotional” or “irrational” is beyond count. For some reason it’s still considered acceptable and even funny to wave away women’s emotions as products of their menstrual cycles (which, for the record, not all women have, and not everyone with a menstrual cycle is a woman). There is a unique outlier in the culturally enforced female monopoly on emotions, however. Men are granted access to one emotion without any consequences: anger. No one could argue that anger is not an emotion. It’s been on those coloring sheets since we were knee-high, right? It certainly counts as “an intense mental state” and is indeed “accompanied by physiological changes,” and cultural depictions of men allow them to express anger without any

judgment. For them, anger is seen as the default mode of being or a natural response to stressful circumstances. Of course Liam Neeson is going to lash out when his daughter has been taken for the seventh time, or the moody detective is going to punch a hole in the wall when his lead goes cold. We’ve been culturally conditioned to see these explosions as typical responses, not as emotional outbursts that a woman would be demonized with. A female character who throws plates in response to stress would be labeled hysterical. Walter White can kill people and scream that he’s “the one who knocks” with impunity, but audiences will call Skyler White a bitch because she’s angry that her husband is selling meth. Anyone who doesn’t believe men are emotional creatures has clearly never encountered a men’s rights activist blinded by his privilege and deafened by his own petulant shrieks of “Not all men!” Yes, all men

do experience emotions, and yes, all men benefit from male privilege, having their anger dismissed as natural and not compromising their judgment. I will freely admit that, as a man, I am angry. I am emotional in this situation, because I am angered and appalled by this blatant disrespect and blindness towards women. If you are a man, you have emotions. If you are a woman, you have emotions. Everyone has emotions to greater or lesser extents, and this systematic deriding of women and denial of men’s anger as a feeling is harmful and exhausting to everyone. Plus, look at the handy definition of emotion up there at the beginning of this column; that line of thinking doesn’t even make sense. So, with all this in mind, are you feeling better yet?

John Doar, former civil rights lawyer, dies at 92 WASHINGTON — John Doar, who as a top Justice Department civil rights lawyer in the 1960s fought to protect the rights of black voters and worked against segregation in the South, died Tuesday at age 92. The cause was congestive heart failure, said his son, Burke Doar. Doar was a Justice Department civil rights lawyer from 1960 to 1967, serving in the final months of the Eisenhower administration and then staying on during the presidencies of President John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. He rose to the position of assistant attorney general, or top lawyer, in charge of the department’s Civil Rights Division and challenged discriminatory policies in southern states that curtailed minority access to the voting booth and state universities. A self-described “Lincoln Republican” who worked for the federal government at the height of the civil rights movement, he played important roles in some of the pivotal moments of that cause. In 1962, for instance, Doar escorted James Meredith onto the campus of The University of Mississippi, even as then-Governor Ross Barnett and angry crowds sought to keep the school segregated. He helped Meredith settle into his dormitory on a campus roiled by violent riots that left two dead. He later was the lead prosecutor in the federal trial arising from the deaths of three civil rights workers — Andrew Goodman, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner — who were fatally shot in 1964 while in Mississippi to help blacks register to vote. A federal jury returned guilty verdicts against some defendants, including a deputy county sheriff, but acquitted others. Those killings inspired the 1988 film “Mississippi Burning.” “This was the first time that white persons were convicted for violent crimes against blacks in Mississippi. It was a historic verdict,” Doar said in a 2009 C-SPAN interview. Later in his career, he served as special counsel to the House of Representatives as it investigated the Watergate scandal, where in 1974 he recommended the impeachment of President

Richard Nixon. Among the lawyers on the impeachment committee staff was Hillary Rodham. He also served as special counsel to a judicial panel that investigated U.S. District Judge Alcee L. Hastings on bribery allegations. Hasting was impeached and removed from office. In awarding him the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2012, President Barack Obama credited Doar with laying the groundwork for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. He recalled how Doar, with his hands raised, successfully pleaded with protesters outside the 1963 funeral of Medgar Evers to go home peacefully rather than clash with heavily-armed police officers. “He was the face of the Justice Department in the South. He was proof that the federal government was listening,” Obama said. In the C-SPAN interview, Doar described the election of Obama as “rewarding” and marveled at the progress made toward racial equality since 1960. “Countless black citizens in the South couldn’t vote. They were second-class citizens from cradle to grave. The discrimination was terrible, brutal. And to think, you know, that’s over. It’s done,” he said.


continued from page 1 night leisure occupancy increased 3.8 percent in 2013, compared to the 10.2 percent increase in 2012, according to Choose Chicago. Overnight business occupancy had no change. In Los Angeles, total lodging occupancy increased only 2.2 percent in 2013 compared to the 4 percent increase in 2012, according to Discover Los Angeles. Where are all the tourists going? They’re hitting the road. A recent study by the Center for Rural Affairs showed that small towns and rural communities are seeing economic growth by “being exactly who they are.” The past five years have seen travelers losing interest in the “cookie cutter restaurants, lodging and attractions” of large cities, and visitors are craving “local food, local attractions and connections to the lifestyles of local people” in smaller communities, according to the report. “A lot of the visitors we see coming to Oxford are doing a road trip through the South,” Hedges said. “It’s so expensive to fly now for a family of four. They’re just saying ‘Let’s load up the car and hit the road.’” In 2013, Oxford was dubbed No. 2 in the Top 10 Best Small Towns report by Oxford fell between Dickinson, North Dakota, at No. 1 and Rock Springs, Wyoming, at No. 3. Like Oxford, both towns are seeing a similar growth in tourism. Dickinson, North Dakota, has seen its tourism economy rise and fall over the years. The town is a major hub for the oil and energy industry, and the 2009 oil boom has made it one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S., according to Visit Dickinson. For several years following the oil boom, the town’s lodging occupancy increased dramatically. “Previously, long-term con-


tracts with energy and oil companies kept our hotels full, but that number dipped last year. We’re now seeing higher numbers of tourists. Leisure travel is back,” said Terry Thiel, executive director of the Dickinson Convention and Visitors Bureau. The town reported 70.3 percent lodging occupancy in September 2014, an 8.7 percent increase year-to-date. Like Oxford, Dickinson is seeing larger numbers of families hitting the highway rather than boarding a plane for the big city, according to Thiel. “We’ve seen an increase of traffic on the Old Red Old Ten Scenic Byway,” Thiel said. “People are getting off the Interstate and into our towns.” Dickinson is also the gateway to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, which encourages visitors to stop by while on the road. Rock Springs, Wyoming, is also seeing substantial growth in tourism. In February 2014, the town’s lodging tax was up 11 percent year-to-date, according to the Sweetwater County Joint Tourism and Travel Board. In addition, Rock Springs recorded 85.5 percent average lodging occupancy in 2013, an almost 5 percent increase from 2012. Total visitor spending reaches approximately $183 million each year. “A lot of our tourism has to do with our marketing campaign,” administrative assistant Carol Volsey said. “We do a lot of advertising, and it makes people want to do more things locally.” Oxford has poured more funding into its advertising budget, as

well. On Sept. 30, Visit Oxford announced an additional $30,000 will be geared toward advertising in the 2014-2015 fiscal year, raising the total advertising budget to $90,000. “We focus our advertising within our five-hour drive market,” Hedges said. Through print and leisure magazines, a large digital advertising push, social media and Pandora radio advertisements, Visit Oxford attempts to reach potential tourists from Birmingham, Nashville, Atlanta, Memphis and various cities in Texas. “There’s so many Ole Miss students coming from Texas now,” Hedges said. “We thought that would be a nice market to test out.” Oxford and other small towns offer charm, affordability and an experience that large cities cannot, Hedges said. “Oxford’s affordable for a family,” Hedges said. “There’s plenty to do. We have a wide range of dining options and hotels, so people can kind of pick their price point.” However, there are drawbacks to the family road-tripping trend small towns are noticing. “(Families) are hitting a lot of different southern towns in one vacation,” Hedges said. “The downfall is that maybe they won’t stay in Oxford for long. They’ll move on to the next city. But that just generates more travel to other small towns. Even if it’s only one night in Oxford, it’s still beneficial.”

Caroline Randall Williams publishes new healthy southern cookbook MCKENNA WIERMAN

Published poet, young-adult novelist and M.F.A. student Caroline Randall Williams has co-authored a cookbook titled “Soul Food Love: Healthy Recipes Inspired by One Hundred Years of Cooking in a Black Family” along with her mother, author and songwriter Alice Randall. The book, which features 80 healthy black soul food recipes, is a project Williams said she has always wanted to tackle. “I’ve always loved cooking,” Williams said. “The last book I had published was a children’s book, so this is totally another sack of potatoes.” In the past, Williams co-authored a children’s book titled “The Diary of B.B. Bright, Possible Princess” with her mother, which was published in 2012 by Turner Publishing, and has a poetry book Randall said is set to release early next year. Despite her past experience, Randall is thrilled to be publishing a cookbook. “It’s different on a much larger scale. I’m just trying my hand at all the genres,” she said. “On top of that, I’m working with my mom a second time, which is something I really enjoy.”


The cookbook also includes a personal touch not found in the everyday healthy southern soul food text, a glimpse at the author’s family history in twentieth century

America. The recipes included in the book are translations of traditional African-American Southern foods, made healthier, more affordable and easy to cook. Each recipe is also a

little piece of history, many of them handed down by gener-

ery Green Beans” and “Sinless Sweet Potato Pie.” But the recipes also serve as a kind of setting to what Williams and her mother hope will serve as a model for the modern “strong black kitchen.” Integrated marketing communications major

Daulton Byars said he personally finds the idea of William’s cookbook interesting. Byars, like many students living independently for the first time, said he has begun to take a greater interest in cooking now that he has his own kitchen and thinks it’s a good idea to look into healthier options, especially when it comes to traditional soul food. “I love Southern food. I like Southern cooking, and I think it’s a cool concept to take some traditional recipes and make them healthier,” Byars said. Beyond delicious homestyle cooking becoming a little friendlier to one’s waistline, it will also be interesting to see the personal touch of Williams and her mother in their cookbook. The cookbook is available for pre-order online and due. There will be a book signing at Square Books following “Soul Food Love’s” release in February 2015.

Have the Gators found their answer at quarterback? The defense played up to their expectations at the beginning of the season, holding the Vanderbilt offense to just 308 total yards and forcing four turnovers. Florida gets South Carolina at home Saturday afternoon.


Head coach Bret Bielema is still without an SEC win in his coaching career at Arkansas, but the Razorbacks have been competitive ever since his arrival. It’s only a matter of time when Bielema recruits more great players and Arkansas becomes a power in the conference. Arkansas gets LSU at home Saturday.


Tennessee has a lot to play for in their last three games. With a 4-5 overall record, two more wins secures a spot in a bowl game. Four of Tennessee’s five losses came against teams ranked in the top 15. Tennessee gets Kentucky and Missouri at home next.



Two more opportunities await for Vanderbilt to pick up their first SEC win of the season, but it won’t be easy. The Commodores have a bye week before they travel to Mississippi State and then get Tennessee at home in their final game.

Four straight losses for the Wildcats after starting 5-1 hurts. Kentucky went from a contender in the SEC East to an afterthought. The defense got steamrolled against Georgia, giving up 63 points and 559 total yards of offense. Kentucky ends the season with two winnable games on the road at Tennessee and rival Louisville.

With a 4-1 record in SEC East play, Missouri remains in first place and controls their destiny for a spot in the SEC championship game. The bye week was a great time to get players healthy as Missouri goes on the road against rival Texas A&M Saturday, then Tennessee.

The Georgia offense exploded against Kentucky, scoring 63 points and a career-high four touchdown passes from senior quarterback Hutson Mason in a 63-31 win over Kentucky.

LSU nearly ended another contenders dream of competing for a national title. The Tigers were one stop and overtime period away from upsetting Alabama at home, but lost 20-13 in overtime. The Tigers are on the road the rest of the season, going to Arkansas and Texas A&M.




The Rebels found their ground game Saturday in a big way by rushing for more than 400 yards in their win over Presbyterian 48-0. With the blowout coming early, many of the backups got valuable playing time and the starters gained rest for the bye week. After the bye week for Ole Miss is a trip to Arkansas.

One week earlier, the ball bounced the right way for Auburn in their victory at Ole Miss. It didn’t against Texas A&M, where two unforced fumbles cost Auburn at the end. Texas A&M defeated the Tigers 41-38. The loss at home most likely puts an end of the Tigers’ hopes of repe making the playoff. Auburn travels to Georgia this weekend, where revenge is on the mind of the Bulldogs.


Saturday, the Crimson Tide took LSU to overtime and won 20-13. Senior quarterback Blake Sims struggled throughout most of the game. The Crimson Tide won’t have to leave Tuscaloosa for the rest of the season with home games against Mississippi State, Western Carolina and Auburn.

A 9-0 record, and the number one ranking in the country is something Mississippi State fans could not have imagined when the season started. These last three games will show a lot about the Bulldogs and if they’re true championship contenders or not. The big showdown comes Saturday against Alabama.

Shackelford a finalist for two national awards Deterrian Shackelford has had a long, winding journey as an Ole Miss Rebel. On Tuesday, his perseverance and pursuit of excellence were rewarded when he was announced as a finalist for two different national awards - the Senior CLASS Award and the Wuerffel Trophy. The Decatur, Alabama, native already boasts a long list of honors in this football season, his sixth as a Rebel. He is a quarterfinalist for the Lott IMPACT Trophy and has been named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team and the SEC Community Service Team. He has also been tabbed Capital One Academic All-District and a semifinalist for the National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Award. He is one of 10 finalists for the 2014 Senior CLASS Award, which recognizes NCAA Division I FBS seniors who have notable achievements in four areas of excellence community, classroom, character and competition. He is one of 12 finalists for the

2014 Wuerffel Trophy, the national award that honors the college football player who best exhibits exemplary community service. On the field, Shackelford is the starting Mike linebacker for the nation’s top-ranked defense that allows just 11.9 points per game. Fully recovered from the knee injuries that caused him to miss the entire 2011 and 2012 seasons, he has helped Ole Miss to an 8-2 record and No. 10 national ranking for one of its best starts in history. He ranks sixth on the team with 44 tackles along with 4.5 TFLs, two sacks, two quarterback hurries and a forced fumble. He is the first ever two-time winner of the prestigious Chucky Mullins Courage Award, which goes to the Rebels’ most deserving defensive player each year. Shackelford already owns two degrees from Ole Miss. He earned a bachelor’s degree in history with a minor in English in just three years, and he received a master’s degree in higher education this summer. He boasts a 3.57 GPA

in graduate school after posting a 3.36 in his undergrad studies. He is equally committed to offthe-field service to his community. He is a highly sought-after speaker for his community, school and religious groups, has volunteered for numerous community outreach activities, and has helped lead mission trips to Panama and Haiti the past two spring breaks. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities. The finalists were chosen by a media committee from the list of 30 candidates announced in September. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote on the Senior CLASS Award Website through December 15. Fan votes will be combined with media and Division I head coaches’ votes to determine the

led the Florida Gators to the 1996 national championship, played six years in the NFL and has received national recognition for his humanitarian and community service efforts with Desire Street Ministries, in New Orleans and around the country.

He always takes great pride in representing Rebel Nation.” Earlier in the season, Tobin led the way in an impressive

eighth-place team showing at the Pre-Nationals Invitational (Oct. 18) when he placed 48th of 310 runners in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Freeze talks bye week, early preparations for Arkansas DYLAN RUBINO

The bye week for any college football program is a slow time, but it always brings opportunities to make extra preparations for your next opponent and get players healthy. That’s the case for Ole Miss during their second and final bye week of the season. The bye week comes at a good time, as key players are battling back from injuries and two tough SEC opponents in Arkansas and Mississippi State remain on the schedule. A bye week means more individual drills and competitions between the players for Ole Miss, something Hugh Freeze wanted to see from his players and felt good about Tuesday’s practice in the bye week. “We got back to individuals, which I’m always a big fan of. I’m not crazy about getting away from that like we do in the season. It tends to scale back constantly so we did a good 30 minutes of that with all of our kids,” Freeze said after practice. “We started working on some of the game plan for Arkansas. We got some good work in one-on-ones. It was a good work day.” When taking an early look at Arkansas, the first thing you’ll notice about the Razorbacks is their physical offensive line and their powerful running game. Arkansas averages over 248 rushing yards per game, which is good for 17th in the coun-

Freeze notices the strong play of both the offensive line and the running game and sees both as a great challenge.

“Good players, a physical offensive line, really good tailbacks, and they understand who they are,” Freeze said. please drink responsibly

“They do a good job of coaching that and scheming you and formations and the whole deal. At the end of the day, they have very good offensive lineman and good backs.” When asked about injuries, Freeze talked about a “twoweek plan,” where he rested guys that were injured against LSU and Auburn against Presbyterian last week and will rest those guys in practice during the bye week. Those players should be healed and rested enough to go for the Arkansas week. “They’re doing more stuff in practice,” Freeze said. “I saw them running and getting lifts in and all of that stuff today. I’ll hold the out of practice this week and hopefully, will have them back by Sunday.” The Ole Miss defense gave up a lot of rushing yards before the Presbyterian game, especially against LSU and Auburn. The defense gave up 264 rushing yards to LSU and 248 yards to Auburn in back-toback weeks. Freeze talked about what it meant for his team to go against two great rushing attacks. “Those teams usually get their fare share of rushing yards. I think it’s just a product of playing in this conference,” Freeze said. “There were some things that we have to get corrected and do better in the next couple of weeks. I think it’s kind of hard to say because you are comparing two different animals.”
