Oxford Retail Sales Rising BY KATIE NICOLE COOPER The Daily Mississippian
5K for a Cure BY CAIN MADDEN The Daily Mississippian
Over 75 people gathered in front of the Student Union at 6 a.m. Saturday for the American Cancer Society’s University Relay for Life fundraiser 5K for a Cure Race. Reid and Maggie Mallette were two of the many stretching and helping each other pin on their numbers before they ran in the race, which they also competed in last year. “We compete in this event because our grandmother died of cancer, and because it is a good cause,” Maggie Mallette, 13, said. This year, the sisters brought along not only a year’s worth of crosscountry experience, but
also their father, Pope. “With a full year of crosscountry training behind us, we hope to beat our records,” Reid Mallette, 14, said. In last year’s race, Reid finished the 3.1-mile route in approximately 38 minutes, and Maggie Mallette finished in approximately 32 minutes. Kyle Lewis, a 25-year-old nutrition graduate school student, hoped to compete with someone else as well — his 2-year-old labspring spaniel mix, Tybee. “I was originally planning to run with my dog, but he took off and ran his own race,” Lewis said. “I just wanted to come out and support the cause. It is a great cause to be into.”
Kent and Loretta Reece, who decided to retire in Oxford, also wanted to support the cause. “I think it is a good cause to try to find a cure,” Loretta Reece said. “Anything we can do to support the cause is worth it to us.” The couple is also happy to be out at retirement age. “Just the accomplishment of being able to compete in the event at our age is saying something good,” Loretta Reece said. Lewis won the race with a time of 16 minutes and 11 seconds. Maggie, who attends Oxford Middle School, finished a few seconds ahead of Reid, who attends Oxford High School, at 28 minutes and See 5K, PAGE 6

While retail sales are stagnant or suffering nationwide, Oxford businesses are seeing a brighter side of the recession. Autumn Wrenn, sales associate at Cat Daddy’s, and Ink Spot, a business popular for its T-shirt sales, said the Square is definitely busier now compared to last year. “We’ve had about 20-30 people in the store at one time, and it’s quite different,” Wrenn said. Most businesses on the Square agreed that while summer is a slower time for retail sales, the return of students during the first half of August makes up for what may be lost during summer. “You can tell when students are coming back in town,” Beth Champion, a sales associate at Oooh La La Boutique, said. “We start to get more business.” Cat Daddy’s also noticed the decrease in activity during the summer months. “Summer is definitely our slowest time of year because most students are gone,” Wrenn said. “But if your businesses can make it through summer, sales will jump up by about fifty percent in the fall.” Home football weekends bring about substantially more business, not only from Ole Miss fans, but from visitors and tourists as well. “Home football days are our busiest days,” Wrenn said. “About
90% of our customers are Ole Miss fans, but we also get people who buy Oxford shirts.” While both Cat Daddy’s and Oooh La La Boutique have seen an increase in business, Megan Howell, a sales associate at off-Square boutique Indigo’s, said that business seems almost the same as this time last year. The freshman class contributes significantly to the retail sales on the Square as a result of purchases for sorority recruitment and game days. Howell said, however, it seems like it takes longer for the freshmen to get into the shopping scene on the Square. Businesses expect sales to pick up as football season approaches, however. Stan Shanks, owner of Landry’s, a clothing store for men, agrees that summer is slower, but fall brings about a lot of business for the store. “We sell a lot of nicer clothing for men, such as bow-ties, dress shirts, and shoes, especially during football season,” Shanks said. He added that Landry’s is seeing the increase in business as well. Shanks said he expects to be even busier this fall, especially with the three home football games in a row in September. Oxford is a destination town, he adds. People begin to arrive by Wednesday for the game and by Saturday business is booming. While all of these businesses experienced See RETAIL, PAGE 4
ASB Gives Students New Choice in Transportation BY KATIE NICOLE COOPER The Daily Mississippian
The University’s new program, Bike Give-Back, kicked off Friday in front of the Student Union with the distribution of its first 10 bikes. This program, which began as a stem program from Rebel Pedals, aims to give refurbished bikes to Ole Miss students with no current means of transportation.
While Rebel Pedals gives students increased access to affordable bikes, an inexpensive alternative to driving a car, Bike Give-Back recycles bikes and prepares them to be redistributed among worthy students. This year, some of the bikes from Rebel Pedals will be retired from the program and entered into Bike Give-Back. As for the accumulation of the bicycles,
the University collects abandoned bikes on campus at the end of every year. Student volunteers trained in bike restoration will refurbish the bikes throughout the semester, readying them for distribution to qualified individuals who participate in the program. Along with the collection of bikes by the University, cyclists are now able to donate their old or unwanted bikes to Bike GiveSee TRANSPORTATION, PAGE 4

Get Used to the Roadblocks BY EMILY CEGIELSKI Columnist
T H E
This past week I took the words of advice given to children throughout centuries, and I befriended the new kids. Well, I befriended some of them. Aside from the occasional embarrassing shout out at Walmart (imagine “Hey, freshman!” being shouted down an aisle), I feel like we are getting on rather well. In fact, I even attended a party with a new girl from Florida this past Friday. On our way there, we went through a roadblock. No one thought anything of it except the “frosh,” who bombarded us with questions regarding the cops. Welcome to Oxford. The upperclassmen and citizens of this fair town alike know that roadblocks are the glue that keeps Oxford held together. Without them, the city would unravel. People would go crazy in the streets. No one would know what to do. Actually, that is probably false, but the sight of police checking for drunk drivers is so common that students no longer wonder if there will be a roadblock, but now wonder where it will be and what time it will get there. My feelings about these gatherings of cops
and students are mixed. Roadblocks have always scared me for absolutely no reason at all. I feel like I’m being interrogated without proper cause, and my heart races every time a stern looking police officer barks at me for my license and registration. They waste my time and patience. I’m not getting any younger waiting for a line of cars to pass the “inspection,” and most likely I’m on my way home to get some much-needed sleep before the next day’s classes. This being said, I get the point. Just today, I was almost killed trying to park my car. A guy drove straight at me without so much of a glance out the windshield. I feel like if these are the kind of people driving drunk down our streets at two in the morning, then we should block the roads twice as often. I know we like to stay out late, and house parties are the place to be, but I really don’t see any reason for driving drunk. We have Rebel Ride, University DD, Angel Taxi, and those new buses that can take your drunk little self home without you ever getting behind the wheel.

Plus, everyone has friends. Most likely, if you are unfit to drive (and you really should know), a sober friend is just a phone call away. My main concern is that these roadblocks aren’t exactly keeping the crazy drivers off the street. Like I said, I’ve almost gotten killed in parking lots more often than I have driving back to my dorm late at night. Maybe those who drink excessively are using the “ride resources” available to them. Maybe the roadblocks really work. Either way, I’m not convinced. The worst part is that I really don’t have a solution. I think it has just become so much a part of the Ole Miss experience that it will never change. Roadblocks are a right of passage that never dies not only for Ole Miss students but for citizens of Oxford young and old. So freshmen, yes, there are roadblocks. Every night. Everywhere. If you didn’t get to experience one this past weekend, you have now been warned. And don’t bother asking if it’s a “beginning of school” thing. They never, ever end.

A Tale of Two Cities BY JON MOSBY Columnist
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated many cities on the Gulf coast in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. We all remember what happened; New Orleans was nearly destroyed and the cities along the coast were basically wiped off the map. During the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, you can catch hundreds of old news articles and television reports about the recovery of the New Orleans area and yes, Mississippi, but how much progress has been made in the Mississippi coast in the past five years? Yes, it can be said that the greater New Orleans area suffered the most damage from Hurricane Katrina, but it seems quite odd that Mississippi, no matter the circumstance, is often overlooked rather quickly, and the damage done to the state is often lost in the drama of the event itself (such as Katrina and the BP oil spill).
While I do understand that there is a big difference between one city and an entire coastal area I don’t understand why the damage done to the Mississippi Gulf Coast wasn’t seen as an opportunity to change or totally reinvent the area? Pre-Katrina, New Orleans had a heap of problems, from a dysfunctional public school system to a totally corrupt police department. Following Katrina’s damage, many people saw the damage as an opportunity to make New Orleans a better place or to make it into something it was meant to be. It seems if as the country doesn’t share that same sentiment for the state of Mississippi. In the years following Katrina, public and private sectors have slowly returned to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. This economic develop is good, but to what effect? In North Biloxi, in place of once beautiful, old homes, gas stations and fast-food restaurants are being built. In one area of the city,
historic Biloxi neighborhoods are now gone, with that there are now plans to build a casino in that area. Several changes have been made in New Orleans. Several successful charter school programs have cropped up around the city. Big improvements have been made to hospitals in the city. Mayor Mitch Landrieu has also begun to reform the city’s police department. I don’t want to damper the progress being made on the Mississippi Gulf Coast or make it appear that New Orleans has somehow magically become a glorious, wonderful place and has somehow turned
a 180. I do, however, want to put the spotlight on the development of these two areas. It seems as if as a group of people got together and decided that they were going to try to make New Orleans a much better place than it had been. Schools are being reformed; the justice system in the city is being reformed, the way they build homes has changed and culture and history has been brought back to the city. The Mississippi Gulf Coast, on the other hand, seems a bit different. It seems as if someone had the bright idea that all you need to do was prop up a couple
of businesses and that would be a job well done. Developers are missing out on a huge opportunity to restore culture and the historic flair of the majority of the once glorious coastal cities. These radical differences in recovery in the New Orleans area and the Mississippi Gulf Coast make no sense at all. My only hope is that developers and city planners see the entire Gulf Coast’s recovery as a grand opportunity to make the area as great as it was pre-Katrina or better, and that we bring the warm culture and grandiose beauty back to our states.

Letter from the Editors get your morning fix
The Daily Mississippian
The STudenT newSpaper
Dear DM Readers, First off, we’d like welcome you to the new year and say that we look forward to serving you with up-todate and accurate news. It is our duty to inform the public, and we hope to exceed the student body’s expectations concerning news coverage. One of our many goals this school year is to bring you more news that is timely, but we can’t do this without your help. The Daily Mississippian is entirely student-run. We hope that you remember when you read the paper that we are students, just like you, trying to pass our classes and make the most of our college experience.
We dedicate a good portion of our day to working on this paper, but sometimes we miss things or make a mistake. But that’s where you come in. We cannot cover every thing that happens on and off campus, but we would like to highlight as much as possible. It is our hope that the student body and Oxford community will assist us in informing us about anything they feel could be newsworthy. Your assistance in this will help us to cover the essentials, as well as keep our community informed on the happenings of our wonderful university and the town that graciously hosts it.
Also, in the grind of classes and school work, it is plausible that we will make a mistake or misspell a name, and we ask that you point these out to us. We need you to give us feedback about what you do and don’t like. If you think we are putting too much emphasis on a subject let us know, or even if you think we’re not giving something enough mention, please give us a call, e-mail or send a messenger pigeon– just let us know. Thank you for your support in previous years, and we hope to continue a tradition of excellence. Go Rebels! Sincerely, your news editors Amanda Ward and Lance Ingram
Back. Currently, 200 bikes have been collected and will be refurbished and distributed as part of the program. With the program officially beginning on Friday, students are now able to submit an application to apply for a bike. Applications will then be reviewed by the Associated Student Body throughout the semester, and the ASB will determine which students will receive bicycles. “We take abandoned, old, and donated bikes, refurbish them as needed, and give them to persons in need,” Cory Washington, a member of the ASB staff and Green Student Intern Program, said. “Although our main objective is to serve individuals who are in need of transportation. We will also hold silent auctions for those persons wanting to
slower success during summer, sales associates at University Sporting Goods on the Square said they rarely see a drop in sales, due to the diversity of their business. “Summer is actually pretty steady here,” sales associate Danielle Smith said. “We do jerseys for different teams during summer, as well as tshirts for family reunions, so it’s not a big business drop for us.” The business sees girls come in all summer to purchase Nike shorts and during fall, they sell a lot of Ole Miss Polos for guys, fellow associate Jeff Gray said.

buy a bike for a fraction of the cost,” he said. The program was created by a partnership between the Associated Student Body and the Office of Sustainability, and aims to make positive, earthfriendly changes to the campus here at Ole Miss. “This program is important because it’s another mechanism that we are hoping will fulfill our end goal, which is to support and grow Oxford as a biking community,” said Anne McCauley, project coordinator for the Office of Sustainability. “It’s great for the students as well.” “Our goal has been and will always be to change the culture of our campus from a driving campus to a bike- and pedestrian-friendly campus,” Washington said. “So remember: let’s go green together!”

Business Leaders Participate in Business School Distinguished Speakers Series BY HILLARY GOODFELLOW The Daily Mississippian
The School of Business Administration will begin its Fall 2010 Distinguished Speakers Series this week. The purpose of this series is to expose MBA students to a variety of leaders in the business world, said Bethany Cooper, director of corporate relations and MBA services. The series will begin with John Dunavant, vice president of the FedEx World Hub in Memphis. Dunavant will speak September 2 at 4:30 p.m. in room 30 of Holman Hall. “The idea is for students to come and learn more about the opportunities available to them,” Cooper said. “These leaders are taking what the students are learning in the classroom and applying it to real world situations.” This is not the first year the Business School has hosted the series. This year is different, though, because it has been moved to a lecture hall in order to accommodate more students, Cooper said. In the past, the main focus of
the speaker series were students in MBA programs. This year, however, all undergraduates are encouraged to attend. Because of the variety of speakers, students of all majors and classifications will benefit from attending. Cooper named Bill Chiles as a speaker that might be of particular interest to engineering students. Chiles is the president and CEO of Bristow Group, which is one of the world’s largest providers of helicopter services, according the company’s website. Chiles is scheduled to speak October 28. Many of the speakers are Ole Miss alumni. Cooper said students especially enjoy alumni speakers. “Students really relate to them because they have walked in their shoes,” she said. “Some of these speakers have only been out of the school for five years.” Three-fourths of the speakers in this year’s series graduated from the University of Mississippi. Jennifer Jordan, an alumna, received both her BS and master’s degree in accounting from Ole Miss. She is finance director at Stevens. Jordan is scheduled to
speak November 4. Copper advised that students briefly research the speakers in order to get the most out of the series. “There will be a question and answer time after they speak, but (the speakers) really love when students are prepared to ask questions as they go,” she said. “After is when you’ll be able to go up and get a business card, learn how to apply, or ask about internships. This is a great way for our students to network.” Some students are hoping to get something different out of attending the series. Jacque Walker, a sophomore business major, is hoping the series will help her decide a major. “It sounds like a great opportunity,” she said. “I think I want to do managerial finance, but I’m hoping by listening to some of these speakers I may be able to decide for sure.” A full list of speakers and dates is available at news.olemiss.edu.

The race had twice as many participants as last year, team member Carrie LeMay, a psychology graduate student, said. LeMay said since Aug. 23, when the relay team started working, the organization had raised $1,700, which doesn’t include the final tally on
the race. “We decided to start earlier this year,” LeMay said. “We thought the race would kick start the Ole Miss Relay team off, so we could raise as much as possible.” All proceeds will benefit cancer patients through the American Cancer Society.

Spotlight: Ole Miss Fencing BY EMILY CEGIELSKI The Daily Mississippian
Ever heard the expression “just take a stab at life?” Well, some University of Mississippi students are doing just that in the Ole Miss Fencing Club. Having been around since 1989, the Fencing Club is not new, and neither is John C. “Doc” Matthews, its fencing coach. “I’ve been involved since almost the very beginning,” Matthews said. “One of my graduate students learned about the club and told me about it because he knew I had fenced in college.” For Matthews, a professor in the school of pharmacy, the road to coaching was a short one. “I started fencing in college in the sixties, but when I went off
to graduate school, I got busy and turned away from fencing for a long time,” Matthews said. “Then the club got started in ‘89. A few years later, I started coaching.” The Fencing Club has never failed to produce quality fencers since Matthews has been in charge. Fencers compete in competitions almost every other month, and it is not unlikely to see the Rebels bringing home medals. Matthews said it is easy to join, all you have to do is “show up.” Normal club meetings are on Tuesday and Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and anyone interested is welcome to come. “Students have an annoying habit of graduating and leav-
ing,” Matthews said. “So we are constantly rebuilding with new fencers.” Often, students worry about being beginners in a club such as this, but Matthews makes it easy. He is currently teaching a beginners’ class for credit at the Turner Center, and he is starting a fencing class at the Residential College this week. Freshman chemistry and Chinese double major Tony Stvartak is excited to begin learning the art of fencing and plans on making time in his busy schedule to attend classes. “I am taking fencing because it is something I’ve thought about doing before, and I enjoy things having to do with intricate footwork,” Stvartak said. The Ole Miss Fencing Club is fortunate to have its own building off of University Ave. that is fully equipped with fencing equipment and even floating floors.
“We are blessed to have a stateof-the-art fencing facility.” Matthews said. “This is one of the best fencing facilities in the country, and I should know. I’ve been around.” Aside from an amazing place to practice, Ole Miss’s club has a top-of-the-line coaching staff. Matthews, himself, is a US Olympic training centercertified fencing coach. By the end of the semester, he will be fencing and coaching up to 20 hours a week in addition to his full time professorship in the pharmacy school. The Fencing Club has another full-time coach and two assistant coaches aside from Matthews. “We are blessed to have four coaches which is amazing for a town the size of Oxford,” Matthews said. With such a major support system, it is no surprise that the Ole Miss Fencing Club is
strong. “We’re a very active club,” Matthews said. “We’ve always been one of the strongest sports clubs on campus. We go to competitions. We show.” As much as Matthews loves competing (it is his favorite part, after all), he understands that sometimes fencing just needs to be a getaway. “It’s huge fun, number one,” Matthews said. “It’s very good exercise and an excellent stress reliever.” If you are interested in joining the Ole Miss Fencing Club or just want to blow off some steam by stabbing at people, stop by the Oxford Fencers Club on Tuesday or Thursday evening and ask to speak with Doc. The enthusiasm he has for the sport will rub off on you in a heartbeat. Who knows, you might be Ole Miss’s next great fencer.

Soccer Struggles in Pair of Weekend Contests BY AUSTIN MILLER The Daily Mississippian
It was a frustrating second weekend in women’s soccer as Ole Miss played to a scoreless double-overtime draw with Western Kentucky on Friday night and fell to UAB 3-1 Sunday afternoon. Ole Miss appeared to be the better team in Friday night’s contest with Western Kentucky, and held the advantage in shots (14-10) and corner kicks (106). Junior Kelsey Breathitt made some good runs in the first half and put some pressure on the Western Kentucky defense, but she was injured with about five minutes to go in the half. Her absence looked to be the difference in both of the weekend’s games. “When you lose (Kelsey Breathitt) on Friday and you have to turn around and play on Sunday, it’s hard to be ready,” Ole Miss coach Matt Mott said. “We have to get some things sorted out as we go into next weekend.” In the second half ’s opening ten minutes, there was a flurry of chances for Ole Miss, including four corner kicks and senior
Taylor Cunningham had a pair of chances stopped by Western Kentucky’s goalkeeper. “We came out, I thought, a lot more intense in the second half and really went at them and got a couple of really good chances,” Mott said. “I thought we were going to get one there, but we just weren’t able to. In the end, you have to score. If you don’t score, you can’t win.” In the second half ’s opening ten minutes, there was a flurry of chances for Ole Miss, including four corner kicks while senior Taylor Cunningham had a pair of chances stopped by Western Kentucky’s goalkeeper. While a lack of offense led to Friday’s scoreless draw, a series of defensive breakdowns proved to be the difference in Sunday’s 3-1 loss to UAB. The three goals allowed was the most given up by Ole Miss since the 2008 season. Junior Lily Crabtree, making her first career start in the place of Breathitt, sparked the Rebels’ offense. She created two scoring chances for herself and setting up teammates on three others. The best chance of the first half, courtesy of Dylan Jordan, hit off the near right post. “We just couldn’t get the ball

Regina and Miranda had a great tournament. Morgan Springer did a great job of controlling the back row.” The Rebels put together a balanced attack in the first set, getting at least three kills each from four different players as Ole Miss fell behind early but battled back. Ole Miss clawed back to tie the set at 13 and moved into the lead for good from there on the way to a 25-19 win in the first set. The second set was all Rebels as Ole Miss stormed out of the gates to claim a 9-1 lead and never relinquished the advantage. The Owls would cut the lead to four, but the Rebels never let the home team get any closer and claimed the set 25-20 to take a two set lead. Ole Miss fell behind to open the third set with the Owls moving out to an 8-3 lead. But the Rebels wouldn’t give up and chipped away at the lead with a fury. Ole Miss finally claimed the lead with a pair of kills from Courtney Cunningham that put the Rebels on top 18-17. Ole Miss closed the match out from there, claiming the third set 25-21. The Rebels will return to action next weekend at the Northwestern Challenge. Ole Miss will face Utah, Morehead State and Northwestern in that tournament, beginning with the Northwestern Wildcats at 7 p.m. Friday.

on frame in enough dangerous positions,” Mott said. “That’s the name of the game. I think we had plenty of chances. We just couldn’t finish and they did.” UAB picked up the pressure in first half ’s closing minutes and eventually netted the game’s first goal. The intermittent rain came down harder in the second half and likely caused junior goalkeeper Alley Ronaldi to misplay a ball just outside the box that resulted in UAB’s second goal of the game. With just over ten minutes to go in the game, Cunningham ended Ole Miss’ scoring drought with a lofting ball to the far post that beating the diving UAB goalkeeper. After the goal, Ole Miss continued to push people forward look for that elusive game-tying goal, but UAB extended the lead to 3-1 on a counter-attack. “I thought for the first 40 minutes we really played well,” Mott said. “And then we let one get away and then we had to chase the game.” The Lady Rebels take their 1-11 record to South Bend, Ind. this weekend and look to return to their winning ways against Texas Tech and Santa Clara.

Junior Kelsey Breathitt pressures the Western Kentucky defense on Friday night. Breathitt was injured in the second half and missed Sunday’s game against UAB.
The Rebel volleyball team came out firing on all cylinders on day two of the Rice Invitational as Ole Miss (2-1) defeated host Rice (21) by a score of 3-0 (25-19, 2520, 25-21) Saturday night to close out the tournament and claim the championship. With the win, the Rebels won both matches on the day after shutting out Texas Tech 3-0 in the first match of the day. Allegra Wells led the Rebels with 11 kills on the evening, while Miranda Kitts put down nine kills, Regina Thomas notched eight kills and Kara Morgan put down seven kills. Thomas also hit .500 for the match, while Wells put down four blocks. Thomas was named Tournament MVP. Kitts and Wells joined her on the All-Tournament team. The strong Saturday performance came on the heels of a season-opening loss to UT-San Antonio that head coach Joe Getzin credited for his team’s solid response against the Red Raiders and Owls. “I really think it helps keep things in perspective and helped us finish strong today,” Getzin said. “It was two tough matches that we kind of powered through. What a way to respond. Allegra is really maturing as a player and learning how to play more within herself. “Our middles did a great job. If we pass well, they’re hard to stop.
