MAYOR ON A MISSION Photography and Article by Steven Gagliano


he was the woman behind the original Double Decker Arts Festival, she has served as an Alderman for four years, and now, Robyn Tannehill has been inaugurated as the Mayor of Oxford. In her inaugural address on June 29, Tannehill called upon the community to join her in entering a new era in Oxford. Come Together “A mayor and seven board members can’t do it by themselves. It takes buy-in from every member of this community. I believe in Oxford. I believe that we have proven ourselves, that in tough times we all come together and when we face a challenge together; we defeat it. So, I invite you to join in this mission of making Oxford better than we’ve ever seen before.” It’s no secret that Oxford’s growth has been a topic of conversation around town

over the past few years, and while it must be dealt with, Tannehill knows that things could be worse. While managing growth, she wants to ensure Oxford retains the sense of community it’s come to be known for. Growth Is Good “When growth is your biggest challenge, you shouldn’t complain. We have good problems in Oxford,” Tannehill said. We’re doing a great job of putting ordinances, zoning, and land development codes in place to protect the architecture and look of Oxford. I’m just as passionate about protecting the sense of community, and that’s harder to do. You can’t write an ordinance to protect the sense of community, so that’s something that I’m going to spend a lot of time focusing on.” Tannehill takes over for outgoing Mayor Pat Patterson, who decided not to seek re-election after spending 16 years in Visit for news, arts, sports, and fun! | 11

public service, including two terms as Mayor. Patterson and Tannehill have worked together in several capacities since Patterson hired her to become the tourism director for the City in 1995. Tannehill brings with her a good foundation of Oxford Experience, starting with tourism director and being the founder of the Double Decker Arts Festival, which just completed its 22nd year. During her time as a stayat-home mom, Tannehill continued to volunteer and cultivate relationships all over Oxford. After hearing Oxonians’ concerns, she decided to act and ran for Alderman of Ward II in 2013. “I was so involved with so many things and frustrated with certain things, and I’m one of those people that likes to put their money where their mouth is,” Tannehill said. “I’m not going to sit on the sidelines; I’m going to make a difference.” The Mayor's Mentor Because she ran unopposed, Tannehill got a head start on her new role, but whenever she had a question, her old friend was there for here. During the transition period, Patterson continued to mentor Tannehill as he has done for years. While things may be run differently now that she is in office, Tannehill is grateful to learn from a close friend and colleague. “We are good friends, and have worked together for many years. He has taught me a lot, and he’s making this transition 12 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

so easy by being transparent about how everything works. I’ve asked him more questions over the past three months, and I’m sure he’s tired of it, but he never shows it,” Tannehill said. “We will do it differently. We have different

personalities, different leadership styles, different things that motivate, but we both have Oxford’s best interest at heart.” The Chancellor of the University of Mississippi, Jeff Vitter, was in attendance at Tannehill’s inauguration and spoke of the unique relationship between Ole Miss and Oxford. Vitter looks forward to working alongside Mayor Tannehill during Oxford’s growth and shares the mindset that it cannot come at the expense of sacrificing Oxford’s smalltown charm. Keep Oxford Unique “Ole Miss is extraordinarily lucky to be in Oxford,” Vitter said. “Our strong working relationship between the university and the city of Oxford is essential for our success. We know that growth comes with both benefits and challenges. We can work together to keep

Oxford unique and preserve that small town feel that makes our small town so special as we welcome the benefits of growth. I look forward to working together over the next four years.” Everyone has an opinion on how Oxford should move forward into the future, and Tannehill looks forward to hearing from each and every one of them. “I’m extremely honored to serve,” Tannehill said. “I look at this, not as a title, but as a public service. I want people to know that I will always be approachable, that I want their input and value it. I work for the taxpayers of Oxford, I know that, and it’s important that they know that.” With a focus on the future, while remembering Oxford’s storied past, Tannehill is ready to lead, and the people of Oxford are here to help.

Ole Miss Musings: Interior Designer Katheryn King Coleman Still Making A Difference on Campus Photographs by Hubert Worley | INTERVIEW BY STEVE VASSALLO


atheryn King Coleman, former Chi O at Ole Miss, has found her niche in life, that of being a sensational interior designer. Having gotten the ADPi house up and running, Katheryn is now focusing on other projects, including some on campus. EO: Katheryn, before we jump into the interior design business, please share with our readers your background including the Greenwood roots. KC: This is the third time I have lived in Oxford (as a child, as a coed, and now as an adult), but I do consider myself to be from the Delta (Greenwood, MS), having graduated from high school there. Before Greenwood, my background was in Blytheville, Arkansas (where our family farm is), and Memphis, TN.

20 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

EO: What was it like living in the Chi Omega house? KC: It was tons of fun (we did have to study, though, and were usually number one on campus for highest GPA), and what a wonderful sisterhood! I am still friends with a lot of those same people. In the house, we were probably a little spoiled: three square meals a day, five days a week, and we did not even have to clean our own rooms as some of the girls on campus do today. Those were the days! Sigh! EO: Where does an interior designer commence a project such as a sorority house? KC: On a large project such as a sorority house, the programming phase is very important. This is where the designer gathers information from the client such

experience that an interior project such as this cannot be done by committee. That is why Patti Natter (with ADPi national) from Birmingham was given authority to make the final decisions on the interiors. EO: The house sleeps around 70 members? How difficult was it designing the interiors of these rooms?

as interior direction, timing, budgets, contacts, etc. From that point, the designer develops a way of proceeding forward based on the scope of services. This includes color schemes, furniture layouts, reflective ceiling plans, electrical plans, sections, elevations, room perspectives (if necessary), etc. A professional interior designer (not a decorator) is best used for all commercial projects such as this as the designer is licensed, has passed professional exams, and is a professional member of his or her organizations as well as being knowledgeable about the legalities of building codes, ADA, etc. EO: These fantastic photos (taken by Hubert Worley) truly portray the beauty and luxury of the house. KC: Yes, Mr. Worley has quite an artistic eye. The ADPi house (it even has an elevator) is an exquisite addition to the Ole Miss campus, and, also, upon completion, was the only new sorority house since the Kappa Alpha Thetas built their new facility in 1977.

KC: Actually, the parameters were established before I was hired. The rooms were designed for lofted, built-in beds or bunk beds. Unfortunately, during construction, it was decided because of budget constraints that most of the builtin beds were eliminated at that time. The young ladies decided that they did not want to sleep in bunk beds, but twin beds; so, the footprint of the room was slowly eaten up by the extra bed space. I believe now that most or all of the sleeping rooms have built-in loft beds so that furniture can be installed below them. Makes more sense. EO: Not being an ADPi alum, how did a Chi O land this great opportunity? KC: Sometimes, a professional just has to ask for the work. I had noticed a construction sign on their lot on campus one day, contacted ADPi national, and what great timing! They were just in the process of hiring an interior designer for the project.

EO: Trying to please hundreds of the members, alums, parents, and officials, just how difficult was this? KC: Not really difficult at all because ADPi national realized early on in their

Starting college or school, whether a freshman or a returning student, can be extremely stressful. To ease the transition (and the nerves), Experience Oxford would like to offer students a few bacK-to-school tips for success:

Ask Questions

If you are a new student trying to learn your way around campus and Oxford, ask questions! Faculty, staff, and other students are always happy to help. Otherwise, you can go to for an interactive campus map.

3.Get Involved

Signing up for school clubs and activities not only helps you meet new people, but it looks great on your resume.


Be Organized

Use your phone or planner to mark down important dates such as when homework is due or when you have an upcoming test.

4. Stay Healthy

Eat right and get plenty of sleep. Instead of pulling all-nighters before a big test, studying an hour each day will help you retain the information long-term.

5. Find a Balance 6.Set Goals To succeed in both college and in life, finding the balance between work and play is crucial. Learning time management early on will help you tremendously in the future.

22 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

Stay focused on your goals and why you’re here. Keep reminding yourself that hard work pays off. Most importantly, stay positive! It also helps to write your goals down and refer back to them from time to time.

here’s a magical little record store called The End of All Music, one of the greatest gems this town has to offer. The minute I walk in, I am greeted with the aroma of old records, a smell I’ve come to appreciate in my years of collecting. The blue walls have rare and new releases all across them. There are rows of record crates always changing, so every trip, there is a new adventure. I am greeted every time by owner David Swider. Since the day they opened the store, Swider has been most helpful with every question I have. This time I asked about the vinyl record revival. One day, I walked into Urban Outfitters and noticed a small collection of vinyl records. My mind was totally blown. I could not believe a “cool” and “hip” store was carrying vinyl records, something I thought were near obsolete for people my age. 24 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

By Marlene Middleton

As I continued to shop there, their collection grew. It grew so much, they started carrying turntables. I noticed records by modern day pop artists, and even musicians you would never think to find on vinyl. Urban Outfitters is now known for their selection of new pop and classic remasters. Thus, my curiosity about “vinyl revival” soared.

Common Ground One of my favorite questions to ask anyone my age (or around my age) that has a vinyl record collection is about how they began collecting. When I walked into The End of All Music, I knew exactly what my first question was going to be for David: How did you get started with vinyl records? The answer to this question is something David and I have in common. It started with our parents. “As a kid, just listening to my parent’s records,” he said. “They always had records

and a turntable when I was a kid, you know. They had classic rock stuff and Beatles records, and that’s what kind of started it all.” This was interesting, considering the first vinyl record I ever laid hands on was a Beatles record – Abbey Road, to be exact. David Swider has always been a collector. He collected baseball cards and comic books in junior high, then vinyl. He made mixed cassettes with his parents’ records and played them on his Walkman.

“I just loved the look and the feel of records,” he said. “I bought a lot of CDs too, but I bought more records than I probably should have.” What makes vinyl more appealing than other forms of media? From a personal standpoint, there is nothing that beats the crackle sound it makes when I place the needle on the record. Vinyl is a true listening experience.

A Different Kind of Sound “From a sound standpoint, I think any time you have an analog source of music, it’s going to sound better than a digital,” Swider said, “and that’s just the way humans are programmed, and their ears are programmed. “I always think an analog sound wave is going to have a warmer sound, and I think the best way to get that sound is off a vinyl record.”

You know how in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” Cameron talks about his dad’s Ferrari being his most prized possession? I have records that I feel the same way about (although, that’s a bit of a stretch comparing it to a Ferrari). The point is, records keep their value, and you can always find one on eBay for some obscure amount of money. “It’s something that retains its value really well,” Swider said. “So, from a collector’s standpoint, it’s a perfect medium. The combination of the tangible aspect of a record and the beauty of a record, and the fact that it looks cool on a shelf, combined with the sound quality – you can’t find a better way to listen to music or own music. “When it comes down to it, owning music in 2017 is a pretty interesting debate, and I think that vinyl is easily the best way to do that.” So, did vinyl ever really go away? My answer is yes and no. I think people just forgot about how magical vinyl really was. We had an influx of new technology that was more appealing and convenient. “I’m in the camp that argues that it never really went away,” Swider said. “There are more people buying it now than 10 years ago, but 10 years ago, you still had good record stores, and you still had good records coming out on vinyl.” Swider said we’ve now “gone through that era of the first big wave of digital music,” referring to iTunes, Napster, and so on. “People have caught on to the fact that those are not finite. I think people are Visit for news, arts, sports, and fun! | 25

realizing this digital way of owning music is never going to be the same as owning records.” And it’s not … at all. I hardly ever listen to music on my phone, unless I’m using Spotify. I never get on iTunes to even look at new releases. Furthermore, I can’t even tell you where my iPod is. At The End of All Music, you will find a plethora of newly released music. From Katy Perry, to Kanye West, they have it all. They also have a cool event called Record Store Day that’s kind of like Christmas to me.

The Vinyl Revival

My dad is 70 years old and remembers when the Beatles became popular. He attended one of their concerts and passed down his fondness for their music to me. The first record he bought was a 45, and it was Jailhouse Rock by Elvis. Growing up on a farm in a small town, the closest record store to him was in Vicksburg. “I guess what really got me interested in music in high school, beyond the Elvis and Paul Anka era, was a classmate,” he said. “He brought a radio to school with him, and we would listen to his radio on the way home. He introduced me to music by The Beatles.”

Record Store Day is when artists release limited numbers of albums or unique My father didn’t discover his love of albums only on that day. A good bit of music until college. They always played these albums are numbered, and you can music at his fraternity house, and his bet they will sell on eBay for twice what roommate had a nice collection of albums you paid for them, or more. Swider said and a nice stereo system. My father thinks Record Store Day is a modern music is “latching huge day for record stores. on to the popularity of vinyl “This year will be the 10th "When It Comes that was started from classic record store day,” he said, rock.” “and you could definitely Down To It, People go back 10 years and Want Something Good music never goes notice a direct correlation out of style. Vinyl will never Timeless." of vinyl becoming as go away. I think this “vinyl popular as it is now revival” is here to stay. Every because of Record Store Day. They did a artist has evolved and taken inspiration good job kick-starting a vinyl revival.” from generations before them. The same is true for music formats. Many popular artists, such as Katy Perry and James Bay, release limited albums for When it comes down to it, people Record Store Day. This is a fantastic way to want something timeless. All the new include the younger generation. technology loses its appeal over time. With vinyl, we are running back to the start and seeking music in its original form. 26 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

Taxis There are about 10 taxi services offered in Oxford, and while prices vary, the ease and convenience is worth the price. Taxi services include Angel Taxi, Austin Taxi, Rebel Taxi, Oxford Taxi, among a few others. Simply google “list of taxis in Oxford, MS” and a list, along with the number for the taxi service will appear. Prices may vary but are usually about $10 per person. The City Council sets acceptable rates for the taxi services to prevent price-gouging on Ole miss Game day weekends.

Uber Uber has entered the Oxford community for the second time in the past few years. Under a new Mississippi law, Uber has been available in Oxford for a year or so now.


Apartment Shuttles There are a few apartment complexes in Oxford that provide free shuttles to and from The Square on weekends for their residents. This option is very convenient for students given the cost efficiency. Who doesn’t love a free ride? Locations that offer this service are The Hub, Highland Square, and The Retreat. Just in case you’re all out of money for transportation.


“Uber approached the city of Oxford a few years ago wanting to become a “vehicle for IN hire,” but didn’t want to follow the guidelines that have been set on other vehicles for hire in the state," according to Oxford Mayor Robyn Tannehill. When Oxford police made the announcement in 2016 that Uber would return on its Facebook page, it was met with an overwhelming reaction of 601 shares and well over 700 reactions ranging from “likes” to “love” to “wow!” You can access Uber through the Uber app that can be downloaded on your phone. Type your pickup location into the search bar, and an uber should be coming your way! Payments are taken via PayPal or by entering your credit card information.

Highland Square offers free shuttles on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and runs from 9 p.m. until an hour after the bars close.

Pedi Cabs If you want a unique open-air experience, try catching a ride with one of Oxford’s Pedi Cabs or The Flying Tukk. OXFORD These little peddling cabs are positioned along the square and are willing to take you on a cruise to nearby locations. So, sit back and enjoy the night air.

The O.U.T. Bus The Oxford’s Public Transit system (OUT bus) runs many routes around Oxford as well as Ole Miss. Fare for a single ride is $1, and students may ride for free. For a schedule of transit routes visit

Heartbreak Coffee Makes Presence Known In Oxford Community By Savannah Woods

Photo Courtesy of Heartbreak Coffee


fter graduating from Ole Miss, Gretchen Williams moved out West to Long Beach California. After starting Heartbreak Coffee in 2013, Williams decided to return to Oxford in September 2016 and brought her business with her. Williams had been working in the coffee industry for five years and felt it was time to move up in the coffee world. After several ‘heartbreaks’ while trying to pursue a career in the coffee business, Williams branched out and created Heartbreak Coffee, a light-roast specialty coffee company."

Ad(van)ncement I bought a roaster online the next day and started looking for ways I could grow my business,” Williams said. “In Long 38 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

Beach, the store front properties were very expensive, so I had the idea of trying to do a mobile unit.” After searching online for a mobile unit, Williams found a tan Volkswagen Bus on Craigslist that she purchased for Heartbreak Coffee. Williams enjoys the freedom that the bus provides for her business.

Mobile Branding “I started Heartbreak Coffee before I bought the Volkswagen Bus, but I really loved the idea of being able to do pop-up’s at any location,” Williams said. “Once I got the bus, I painted the logo on the side and used it as free advertisement while driving it around town.” The Volkswagen Bus has become a staple for Williams’ company and she has received a lot of positive feedback from both the Long Beach and Oxford communities.

“The business just blew up,” Williams said. “Two and a half years later, the business has got a pretty good following behind it. I have really been able to use and implement the Volkswagen Bus into the things I do with the company.”

Rooting for the Roast After moving to back to Oxford, Williams was worried about bringing a light roasted specialty coffee to the area, however, has had a great response from Oxonians.

“People have really been enjoying the products, and the overall experience they get from Heartbreak Coffee, the brand and the bus is something everyone loves to come see,” Williams said. Heartbreak Coffee can be found at the Oxford Community Market on Tuesdays from three until six thirty and outside of the University of Mississippi Museum on Mondays from eight until noon. All other pop-up’s throughout the week will be posted on Heartbreak Coffee’s Instagram or Facebook pages. Visit for news, arts, sports, and fun! | 39

Oxford Burger Co. Brings Creative Takes On A Classic Burger To The Square

By Steven Gagliano


he Oxford Square may be known for its

shopping and fine dining options, but Chris Stephenson and Patrick McNulty saw an opportunity to bring burgers to the historic district by opening Oxford Burger Co. Both owners are Ole Miss graduates, and Stephenson owns Firehouse Subs here in Oxford. But when deciding to open a new restaurant, he knew he wanted to open a place where he would want to eat.

burgers on a budget “One of my favorite things to eat is to go out and get a burger,” Stephenson said. “I thought if I’m going to open a burger place I want it to be the kind of place that’s fast and casual and design it in a way that offers customers a unique product in an upgraded environment while keeping the prices low. The pair knew that if they were going to be called Oxford Burger Co., they had to back it up with a quality burger. Keeping high-quality beef is priority number one for Stephenson and McNulty. “We’re using a 100 percent fresh product, it’s not a pre-made patty. It’s 100 percent Black Angus USDA choice and we lightly 44 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

season it with salt and pepper,” Stephenson said. “It’s just a delicious burger because of the product we are using. We don’t do anything from a chef standpoint of mixing things into it; we let the beef speak for itself. We cook them to order every time.”

unique options With six different burger options including a “build your own” option, there’s something for everyone on the menu. Among the burgers offered is the “Mac Attack” topped with mac and cheese, the “Col Reb’s Ghost” with bacon and house made comeback sauce, and from the don’t knock it till you try it department, the “Peanut Better Burger.” Topped with bacon and peanut butter, the unique combination was added after Stephenson heard a discussion about the interesting take on a burger on the radio station Supertalk Mississippi. As a self-described skeptic, I tried the burger and was quickly converted from a skeptic into a believer. Currently, the menu features just two options outside of their burgers, but that may change as time goes by. Originally in the plans for the menu were chicken options, salads and a veggie burger. In an effort to master the basics first, Stephenson and McNulty decided to roll out the smaller menu and add things as they go.

Starting out small “Starting with a small menu gives us a chance to get really good at this and then if we add new items, we can add them as specials and eventually make it a permanent menu item. We didn’t want to have a salad or chicken just to say we have it; we want to do it right,” Stephenson said. When Stephenson realized prep work began at 8 a.m., the decision was made to include two breakfast items on the menu. A breakfast bagel, or breakfast in a bun, comes with all the traditional breakfast favorites on top served with a side of tater tots. Oxford Burger Co. opened its doors on May 17th without any big promotion, and the low-key opening

was intentional. The owners wanted to open when the town was a bit more quiet to ensure the quality of the food and the service before the Oxford’s fall rush. “We didn’t want to open and be overrun with customers. We didn’t want to provide a bad experience if we weren’t truly ready. We just wanted to open, and then really figure out how to run this place. I’d rather have a slow open and then be ready for August when everyone gets back,” Stephenson said.

location, location!

Location is critical for any establishment, and with a prime spot on the Square, Stephenson is looking to attract customers who want to come to the Square without paying the premium to do so. “People like coming to the Square to eat, and their choices of a fast casual option are limited, choices on the lower end price range are also limited, and I think we offer that,” Stephenson said. “Fine dining and the Square seem to go together, and we wanted to make sure you could eat here for around $10 including tax.” The restaurant is outfitted with a coke freestyle machine, and is located on Jackson Ave E. Oxford Burger Co. is open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. The restaurant has also signed on with Landshark Delivery. Visit for news, arts, sports, and fun! | 45

On Cooking Southern:


m i t r H e e m m e u a S wit h St ick F t oo d

By Laurie Triplette Visit for news, arts, sports, and fun! | 47

Folks around here love chicken-on-astick. In fact, we’re sort of famous for the popular local protein-on-the-run. It’s a fact, though — Oxonians didn’t invent chicken-on-a-stick. It’s not even the first food ever threaded on a stick. Humans have been applying the foodplus-stick-plus-fire concept to anything that runs, flies or swims since the first upright primate figured out that grilled food is tastier than raw. In communities on every habitable continent (Antarctica is excluded to date), people have their favorite forms of stick-grilled food, often produced over open flames on busy streets. Think about popular variations such as kebabs and brochettes. However, I claim that our Southern ancestors perfected the art of stick grilling when scavenging for food during lean times. They discovered that stick-grilled foods provided the perfect vehicle for flora-based rubs and marinades concocted for the purpose of hiding inherent flavor flaws. Think roasted raccoon or opossum and sweet potatoes. Or – as our Vicksburg ancestors discovered during the terrible siege – roasted rat. The concept stuck, so to speak. And like all shortcut-loving Americans, we modern Southerners love converting otherwise “normal” fork cuisine into fast food. As some wag once pointed out, “necessity is the mother of invention.” Summertime is here to stay, and the weather’s too soupy to turn on the stove. It’s time to get creative. Salads, desserts, side dishes and meat courses all adapt beautifully to the stick. But note: Use metal skewers instead of the inexpensive bamboo ones if the food requires grilling. Save the wooden skewers for the cold foods. 48 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

CAPRESE SALAD ON A STICK 5 T fine-chopped basil 1 tsp garlic powder 2 T large-crystal sea salt Cherry tomatoes Mozzarella balls Large basil leaves Balsamic vinegar 1 T olive oil


Fine-chop fresh basil and spread out on a cutting board to dry for about an hour. Scrape into a large bowl and combine with the garlic powder and sea salt until they become a blended rub.

1/2 c apple cider vinegar 1/4 c olive oil 1/2 c sugar 1 tsp poppyseeds 1/4 tsp salt 1/8 tsp black pepper Watermelon chunks Cucumber rounds, cut 1/2-inch thick Sweet onion wedges Large strawberries, capped and halved lengthwise Green leaf lettuce leaves Crumbled feta cheese

Whisk together the balsamic and olive oil. Skewer tomatoes, basil leaves and mozzarella balls onto wooden picks, alternating until about three of each line the pick. Over a wax-paper lined pan, drizzle skewered salad with the balsamic oil and roll to coat all sides. Sprinkle with basil-garlic-sea salt rub and serve.

Whisk the first 6 ingredients until blended. Combine Veggies and fruit in a large bowl and add the dressing. Toss to blend. Refrigerate, covered, until 30 minutes before serving. To serve, thread on wooden skewers. Serve on a bed of green leaf lettuce, sprinkled with crumbled feta.

LEMON-THYME GRILLED VEGGIES 2 T fresh lemon juice 1/4 tsp lemon zest 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme 2 tsp Dijon mustard 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp black pepper 2 T honey 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil Bell peppers, cut into large wedges Zucchini rounds Onion wedges Button or small portabella mushrooms Butter lettuce leaves Whisk lemon juice, chopped thyme, mustard, honey and seasonings together in a small bowl until emulsified. Add olive oil in a steady stream, whisking to blend until smooth. Thread bell peppers, zucchini rounds, onion wedges and mushrooms on skewers, alternating, with the pepper wedges serving to hold the more fragile veggies intact. Grill on hot grill, turning 4 times during 15-20 minutes, until all sides have been charred. Remove from grill, rake off into large butter lettuce leaves and drizzle with more lemon-thyme dressing. Top with salt and pepper to taste.

BRANDING IRON BEEF 1 T barbecue dry rub of choice (I use Rendezvous) 1 c apple cider vinegar 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil 1-1/2 T Worcestershire sauce 1 T fresh squeezed lemon juice 2 T garlic, minced 2 tsp brown sugar 1-1/2-inch-thick steak, cut into cubes Baby Bella mushrooms Onion, sliced into 1-1/2-inch cubes or wedges Combine dry rub of choice with vinegar and whisk in oil, Worcester, lemon juice, mustard, garlic and sugar until blended. Pour marinade over beef in a large sealable bag. Seal and shake to coat evenly. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, turning the bag at least once. Thread beef onto skewers, alternating with bellas and onion. Discard marinade. Grill on medium-hot grill, turning a quarter turn about every 3 minutes to sear all sides. Ready to eat when center of beef registers 125-130ËšF.

There's No Place Like Oxford By Bonnie Brown

Enjoy our “Reflections” post — one of many vignettes and stories featuring memories of days gone by. This installment is from Bonnie Brown, longtime University of Mississippi employee.


love Oxford! What’s not to love? It is pure Southern charm wrapped up in a picturesque setting complete with an old-fashioned town square. People are welcoming and kind. I was standing at the check-out counter at Home Depot recently, and it occurred to me that I was close to where I first lived when I arrived in Oxford in 1972, Ewing Trailer Park. In fact, the row of mailboxes for the trailer park was located just about where the Wal-Mart service station is now. There was a diner next to the trailer park in front of the former Johnson Motor Inn (where now stands Newks and Pet-Smart) and would become the much-loved Ruby Chinese Restaurant a few years later.

First Impressions It was at this diner I had my first meal in Oxford. I ordered the “meat and three” lunch which included fried okra. I had never eaten okra, fried or otherwise, but thought while in Rome . . . It was delicious! I loved it and still do. My first trip into town was pure pleasure. There it was, the Courthouse Square. My eyes drank in the quaintness of the town, and my ears picked up the Southern drawl of its residents. I was bothered, however, while listening to the local radio station I heard the announcer mispronounce Lafayette, or so I thought. I soon found employment at Ole Miss. I was welcomed there as well. My first couple of weeks on the job were stressful as with any new job. My boss was a junior professor himself fairly new to the School of Pharmacy at Ole Miss. He was intimidating and wouldn’t you know it; I got the flu shortly after beginning my new job. I have never been so sick. High fever, aches and I kid you not, my hair hurt. I struggled and for four consecutive days had to call in sick. I was certain I would lose my job. On Friday, I dragged myself out of bed and to work. Becoming 'Miss Bonnie'

Ruby Chinese Restaurant Menu

When I arrived, my boss looked at me, pronounced that I looked “like hell,” slapped his hand to my forehead to check for fever, and ordered me to go home. I expressed my concern that

I couldn’t lose my job and he scoffed and again ordered me home. I am pleased to report that I didn’t get fired and worked extra hard to prove my worthiness. I loved the Pharmacy students, and soon they were calling me “Miss Bonnie,” a title that has endured throughout my career at Ole Miss. They weren’t aware that even though I was working and had a young child that we were the same age. I am proud to still be friends with many of them. As a young bride, I first met Mississippiborn husband’s 80-something grandfather when we were dispatched to pick him up from his assisted living facility and return him to my in-laws’ house for lunch. I was seated in the backseat of our car when Granddad got into the front seat and without even turning around to make my acquaintance, looked into the rear view mirror and said, “Where you from, Sister?” A voice not sounding like my own responded, “Ohio.” To which my husband chimed, “Southern Ohio,” as if that might redeem me somehow. I’m happy to report that Granddad and I got to be great friends and he forgave that I was a Yam Dankee. Southern in My Soul Yes, I grew up in southern Ohio, but I immediately loved Oxford. Yes, it was small, but there was Neilson’s, a Big K, Freds, a very small Kroger, and Sneed’s Hardware, as well as the iconic James Food Center, all very adequate for my small town life. I was delighted when my children had that musical Southern accent and truly delighted that my grandchildren have an even more pronounced Southern accent. In fact, my firstborn granddaughter Piper told a story when she was four about her little pre-K friend who hurt her feelings and she “cried and cried and cried,” drawing out those unmistakable Southern vowels as only a Southern Belle, albeit a small Southern Belle, can.

Through the years, Ole Miss provided my husband and me with employment, my children a college education, and now my grandson is attending Ole Miss. We were surrogate parents to many, and our extended family has grown through the years. They come in all colors, from all backgrounds and we are so proud of them. My husband declared it was time to retire when he began teaching the children and in a few cases, the grandchildren of the students he taught as a young professor. I retired from a job where I dealt mostly with students who were in academic distress and wound up in a job dealing with scholarship students as their mentor. Such a contrast, and yet similar in many aspects. Looking Back I have lived a profoundly blessed life. When I was young, I imagined my future in great detail. I could have told you exactly what my house would look like, what I would be doing (I planned to be a teacher), and that I would have five children. Not one single thing worked out as I had imagined. I have two children, both sons, of whom I am very proud. Not a teacher but for my entire career, I had the privilege of being around college students, and my house didn’t look anything like the one in my well-planned future. Oxford is a magical place. I still love The Square, and I am still in awe each time I walk around the campus and rejoice that I am fortunate enough to live here. Yes, I am annoyed with the traffic and parking woes, the inconvenience of constant construction, and I often feel that I need to become reacquainted with Oxford as it has grown so dramatically in the last 20 years. But I can’t imagine living any place else. How about you?
