Oxford Stories: Why Oxford Is One Of The Best Places To Live, Work And Attend School By Meaghan Huntley and Hannah Rinehart


xford is perfect for anyone who needs a change of pace from everyday life. This rich, cultured town has so much to offer as a unique North Mississippi destination. With history, undeniable charm and alluring features, you may find it hard to leave after experiencing Oxford’s lively spirit.

For the Love of Food

One thing is certain – you will never go hungry here. Oxford’s rare fusion of Southern comfort food and unique dining offers variety for all taste buds. There are many restaurants to choose from on the Square. Hunter Thompson, a UM senior, eats at Ajax Diner whenever he can to get “the best down home soul food” in Mississippi. “There is a reason that people never want to leave Oxford, and that is 8 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

because of the food,” Thompson said. “Ajax is definitely the best place to eat in Oxford.” With toothpicks covering the ceiling and homemade cornbread served with every dish, you will automatically feel at home as soon as you walk through the door of Ajax.

Kaitlyn Walker, a University of Mississippi student and senior, said she couldn’t imagine her college years without Oxford and the experiences it has brought her. “The Square has so much to offer with its historic feel – you never want to leave,” she said. “It is by far my favorite place to go in town.”

Whether you are taking a Sunday morning stroll to Square Books to find your next read or walking the Bailey’s Woods Trail to dip your toes in the rich history of William Faulkner’s Rowan Oak, there is always something to do. William Faulkner once said, “To understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi.” Some would say the same is true about Oxford.

square books

There are numerous things that set Oxford apart from the rest of the hospitality state. Square Books, what is perhaps Oxford’s most well-known treasure, sits on a corner of the Square. Inside, you can find national bestsellers and new releases from local authors. Once you pick out your favorite book, you can head upstairs, grab a coffee and sit at one of the popular window seats overlooking the Square. 9 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

BUILDING PORTFOLIOS ISN’T THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WE DO. BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS IS. Planning and investing for your future, your family or your business doesn’t have to be complicated. Especially when you have someone you trust, who has taken the time to get to know you and your specific situation, helping guide you along the way.

THe 2017 Oxford Film Festival FEBRUARY 15TH - 19TH

By Steven Gagliano


he 14th annual Oxford Film Festival will officially begin at the Lyric on Wednesday, February 15th and end on Sunday the 19th. The lineup was announced in late 2016 and features 151 films, made up of 34 feature films, 117 short films, music videos, new media and virtual reality projects.

Increased Submissions Twenty-four world premieres and five U.S premieres will take place at this year’s festival along with 35 regional premieres. The festival has received an increase in film submissions for the third consecutive year. Panels with actors, directors and other artists will give audiences a chance to interact with the people involved in at every level of each film’s filmmaking process -- an opportunity that Executive Director of the Oxford Film Festival, Melanie Addington, is excited to bring to film fest goers. “I personally always look forward to having filmmakers from all over the world come to Oxford, some for the 16 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

first time, some who return year after year because they love the festival," Addington said. "Then getting to see our locals interact with them at screenings and ask great questions after the film really makes me happy. It lets the art side of filmmaking emerge with filmmakers interacting directly with their audiences. I am happy to play a small role in that.” The film festival has something for everyone, offering a wide variety of films, but Addington noticed a theme as the lineup for the film festival began to take shape.

Emerging themes “Across several of our categories, we have seen a theme emerge of strong females and minorities and people with disabilities that break stereotypes as well as people who have moving and powerful stories and people fighting for civil rights and justice. That is coming from filmmakers not just in the U.S. but international," Addington said. "There are some pretty incredible stories that will be told this year. Of course, we also have some fun late-night horror and some comedy. It is not all serious!”

While she is excited about each film that will be screened, Addington is looking at one film that may become the talk of not only the festival but nationally as well. James Baldwin’s ‘I Am Not Your Negro,’ directed by Raoul Peck, is generating Oscar buzz for its telling of Baldwin’s attempt at writing a book about his friendship with the leaders of the Civil Rights Movement, including MLK and Malcolm X. “I think ‘I Am Not Your Negro’ is something that everyone will be talking about. It’s been winning awards left and right, and it’s even on a lot of short lists for the Oscars,” Addington said. “Being the director of a Film Festival in Mississippi, I’ve seen a lot Civil Rights Films, but this is beyond anything I’ve ever seen.” This is Addington’s first full year as the executive director, and she has taken a look back on the film festival’s past to create an atmosphere that the audience will enjoy.

community opportunity "I have learned tremendous amounts about what works, how to better improve our line-up, etc. Many of our volunteer staff have been involved for years and always think of ways to make the experience as smooth as possible with streamlining ticket sales, increasing screens for more viewing opportunities and providing more free opportunities for the community so that everyone feels welcome to take part,” Addington said. “We kept what works about the festival, which is showcasing the generosity and hospitality and charm of Oxford and its residents and continue to improve our panels, workshops and special events, as well as top-notch programming.” The Film Festival has become another 17 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

annual tradition in the historic city of Oxford, and Addington makes the case that this isn’t an event that you want to miss. “I think this is a great way to meet people in the community but also really enjoy a fun event. It’s for all price ranges as well. You can enjoy the free screenings we’ll have, or if you want to spend the extra money, a VIP pass is a great way to meet celebrities and get into a lot of parties,” Addington said. “I can’t imagine being in Oxford, even if it’s just this weekend, and missing this event.”

Meet the Woman Running to Become Oxford’s Next Mayor: By Steven Gagliano


n 1988, Robyn Tannehill arrived in Oxford as a student at the University of Mississippi. Twenty-eight years later, she is running to become the next mayor of the City of Oxford. After completing her degree at Ole Miss, Tannehill never left Oxford, and she’s been able to call this town home for each stage of her life and career.


“There’s so much to love about Oxford, and there’s been something different that’s drawn me to it in every stage of my life,” Tannehill said. “As a student, it was the fact that the campus was big enough to always meet someone new but small enough to see a familiar face. As a newlywed and a mother, it became about the small town feel and the school 22 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

systems. Whatever is important to you at any given moment of your life, Oxford can truly meet that expectation.” Tannehill’s degree was in art and interior design, but she followed a different path to her decision to run for mayor. After working for the PR department on campus, her career trajectory would continue to connect her to the city she loved. Working as the director of tourism, Tannehill’s vision was responsible for the creation of the Double Decker Arts Festival. After it’s success, Tannehill started her own ad agency, Tannehill Agency, and eventually sold the business to become a stay-at-home mom. Her time as a stayat-home mom became an opportunity to volunteer all over the city and build

relationships with Oxonians. These relationships led to her decision to run for public office. In 2013, Tannehill ran to represent Ward 2 as their Alderman.


“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. So, I ran and wasn’t sure " if I had a chance, but I won and have worked hard to make Oxford a better place ever since. When Mayor Patterson decided not to run, I felt that this was a natural progression for my career, and it is a way to see through the work I’ve done as an Alderman.” Tannehill referenced the work the Board of Alderman has done to address the parking situation in downtown areas adjacent to campus, updating city neighborhood ordinances and numerous other improvements to the quality of life around Oxford. Appealing to all ages has been important to Tannehill while working in Oxford as she was able to be involved in positioning Oxford as a retirement destination in 1993. Curiosity struck as people wondered why retirees would move to a college town, but Tannehill had a very simple answer. “People may not realize it, but college students and retirees want the same

23 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

things: constant entertainment, good restaurants, safe streets, so it’s actually an incredible match,” Tannehill said.


There’s no denying that Oxford has grown since Tannehill arrived, but she has continued to ensure that Oxford doesn’t lose its charm in the process. She has been an integral part of the Vision 2037 process, a plan for the development of Oxford’s future. After helping put these plans together, Tannehill wants to be the one to see them through as the mayor of the city. “I don’t want Oxford to ever look the same as anywhere else; the eclectic mix we have here is unparalleled. In order to preserve the character and things about Oxford that we treasure, we’re going to have to be diligently proactive about the changes we make,” Tannehill said. “I don’t want people to wake up one day and realize they don’t recognize their town anymore. We need someone who has a vision for the future and what we need to protect moving forward. “We need someone who will listen to different sets of views, not just one set,” Tannehill continued. “Oxford is made of so many different characters with so many opinions and people from many different backgrounds. This makes for a collection of people that all bring something different to the table, and I think I’ve been able to incorporate as many people as I can throughout my career.”

no place for partisan


Tannehill is the first person to announce their candidacy for mayor, and while she is unsure of how many people will run, she is sure of one thing. Tannehill will run as a Democrat but believes that the office of the mayor shouldn’t be bogged down by party politics.

While her campaign has only just begun, Tannehill is in the early stages of creating a “tagline” but has a clear focus that her candidacy will center around.

“It shouldn’t be a partisan position. In four years as an Alderman, I haven’t voted on anything that has been a partisan issue. I don’t think that Republicans or Democrats pick up trash, pave roads or build community centers any differently. I don’t believe that partisan politics has a place in municipal government,” Tannehill said.

“Vision for the future, and respect for the past,” Tannehill said. “I hope I get the chance to see my vision for Oxford’s future through while respecting everything that gives Oxford its charm. I love a problem that we can work together on and find a solution that works for everyone.” The election cycle will ramp up before the primary election in May 2017, and the general election will occur on June 6, 2017.

The Grove At Ole Miss: Another Time, A Familiar Place, A World Apart, Yet Still Unto Itself By William Dunlap


hotographs can be read like tea

leaves, but often at one’s peril. Not everything is as it appears, especially in an image like this one (at right), which turns up from time to time and carries an undeniable resonance. Location: The Grove at Ole Miss, that remarkable and unique ten acres that have remained pretty much the same since the University’s founding in 1848 when landscape architects, Frederick Law Olmsted among them according to legend, did not so much lay out the Grove as simply leave it alone.

A Home Away from Home For those of us who came of age at Ole Miss in the 1960’s, the Grove was our front yard. Under the shade of its oaks, young scholars studied and frolicked, threw frisbees, groped and rushed one another. Touch football games were ubiquitous, as were any number of stray dogs. The random footpaths worn by the ritual of changing classes were left like so many Indian trails from an older time when the Chickasaw roamed these hills. 32 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

On football weekends people gathered there, like today but in a far more casual manner. This was long before so much in our society became organized and monetized. Look closely; there are no tents in this Grove. Lawn chairs, folding card tables and the occasional transistor radio broadcasting play by play accounts where the extent of technology’s reach into the Grove of the late 20th century. (I recall Susan and Barry Hannah’s daughter riding a horse bareback through the Grove one game day.) From time to time a candelabra on white tablecloth with liveried service could be seen. This was generally credited to some Delta alumni or the other. And yes, those are cars, late-model automobiles parked willy-nilly in the Grove, as they would be until the early 1980s when several rainy weekends created a mud bath worthy of a Neshoba County tractor pull.

Morris Meets Ole Miss

The people in the photograph on this day were typical Mississippians, but exceptional as well. It was October 6,

1979, Ole Miss versus Georgia. Georgia would win 24 to 21. This was the first time Willie Morris had visited the Ole Miss campus as an adult, or so I’ve been told.

Tradition Matters

Oxford and Ole Miss had no greater booster than Ed “Shine Jr.” Morgan whose appliance store on the Square was a destination on away game Saturdays. All his Zenith and Philco televisions Willie had come down from New would be tuned to York with the writer SEC football and Adam Shaw as guests "On football weekends there was inevitably of Dean and Larry people gathered there, like a bottle or two in the Wells. Adam, (son of back. (This sacred Irwin Shaw whose today but in a far more space is now the stories The Girls in their Summer Dresses, casual manner.

year of his remarkable six terms in the United States Senate and his service to Mississippi continues to be invaluable. Tradition matters in Mississippi, as does seniority in the Senate. Dean and Larry Wells: these were writers of exceptional vision, range, gifts and lineage. Larry’s Yoknapatawpha Press thrives, and his novel, Rommel and the Rebel imagines meetings of historical figures that are highly unlikely yet made real and riveting by his elevated prose. Dean was an inspired writer and memoirist. She was named for her father, William Faulkner’s younger brother, who died in an airplane crash before she was born. Dean is dressed all in black, as dark as were her eyes, a drink and cigarette in hand. To the left of Dean is the late Carl Downing, an Ole Miss law graduate who practiced in New Orleans. He was a great friend, raconteur and a fine steward of Lorna Doone, one of the immense live oaks in private hands on the Mississippi Gulf Coast that has survived hurricanes and chainsaws for lo these many years. Standing beside Carl is the always elegant Will Lewis, long time proprietor of Neilson’s Department Store situated on Oxford’s Square since 1839. He and wife Patty Povall would host Willie Morris’s 50th birthday party, some years in the future after Willie had come to Ole Miss and played a crucial role in the literary renaissance taking place around the University and Square Books, Lisa and Richard Howorth’s brilliant independent bookstore. Seated in the lawn chairs from left 34 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

to right are Willie Morris in a CBS Sports windbreaker he wore everywhere. (Willie has that beatific look of a man who can clearly see the next twenty years of his life unfold.) Next to him E. Grady Jolly, soon to be appointed to fill J. P. Coleman’s seat on the Fifth Circuit Court, and his gorgeous wife Bettye Jolly, who is smiling and laughing and appears to be living up to her married name.

Capturing Memories

There you have it; the cast of characters on this cool, crisp October day on the cusp of a significant period in Ole Miss’s storied history. If every picture tells a story, as this one does, and a picture is worth a thousand words, as this one surely is, then one can only thank the late Walt Mixon for coming by, knowing where to stand and releasing his shutter at just the right time. By the way, I am there too, on the far left, wearing my artist uniform of the period: Levi’s, running shoes and a camera bag over my left shoulder. (Larry Wells had arranged a sideline pass for me and I shot a dozen rolls of E6.) My vague memory is that at this moment I am attempting to consume a piece of fried chicken without use of my hands, a futile effort that caused much delight and amusement amongst those gathered in the Grove at Ole Miss before a football game on a timeless Saturday in the fall. Hotty Toddy everybody. With thanks to Larry Wells and David Rae Morris

Oxford Chamber: The Landscaping Camp will take place on May 26, 27 and 28. We have an Early Bird special going on now for $300 through January 31, and after that the cost will be $375. The cost does not include accommodations; however, we are excited to have The Inn at Ole Miss as our host hotel, where the camp will be held. In addition, if one doesn’t have a place to stay in Oxford they can make reservations with the Inn at Ole Miss at a discounted rate by calling 1-888-486-7666. What are the deliverables for the attendees? Oxford Chamber: During this twoand-a-half day camp each participant will receive two books written by Jeff McManus, Ole Miss Director of 36 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

Landscape Services, at the Opening Dinner/Book Signing. Among activities, one will be able to immerse themselves on a tour of the beautiful Ole Miss campus, learn some great practices from industry leaders, attend educational seminars on how to prune your shrubs, including choosing the right time, as well as growing gardens, attracting birds plus receive timesaving tips for a low maintenance yard and network in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. To top it off, three tours will also take place en route via the famous Double Decker Bus to the stunning landscaped homes of Dickie and Dianne Scruggs and Sam and Mary Haskell, which are both inspired by McManus, as well as a tour of the beautiful and historical City of Oxford. Jeff McManus is apparently playing a key role. Oxford Chamber: Absolutely! He loved the idea and has jumped on board with excitement and great ideas to make this event a must to attend. Why is the Landscape Camp perfect to host in Oxford?

Oxford Chamber: With The University of Mississippi receiving so many accolades, being named “The Most Beautiful Campus” by a number of national publications as well in Newsweek 2011, The Princeton Review and just recently in USA Today’s Readers Choice competition, make it an ideal and proven location. This Landscaping Camp idea was derived from the accolades of the Ole Miss campus and how Americans love to spend time in beautifying their yards season to season, actually turning their yards into inviting spacse to welcome their family and friends. According to “Good Housekeeping,” 75 percent of American homeowners spend time or money, or both, tending to their lawns. Attendees definitely should leave here inspired. Oxford Chamber: We’re rolling out the Green Carpet, creating a sense of anticipation that will result from the seminars and visits to the magnificent landscaped homes, as campers will be enthused to return home and put their new ideas to work. They’ll be excited to take their homes to a new level of beauty. How many participants are you anticipating? Oxford Chamber: We’re expecting 50 to 100; however, our Early Bird registrations appear to be projecting an even greater attendance. The beautification of the Ole Miss campus appears to be a primary catalyst for the creation of the camp. Oxford Chamber: People respond to 37 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

beautiful well-planned surroundings. The University’s beauty has attracted a number of prospective students to Ole Miss, as well as residents to Oxford. Appearance adds to home values, helps attract business investment, and just improves the overall neighborhood reputation. Research shows that beauty is one of the top three factors in creating community attachment, or loyalty, to your particular town, city or neighborhood. How will the ultimate success be determined? Oxford Chamber: Turnout will be key, as well as if one asks for more information regarding Oxford or possibly coming back for another visit. In addition, a brief survey will also be given to each attendee. We anticipate the Landscaping Camp becoming an annual event as Oxford, Ole Miss and natural beauty are all synonymous! And, May is one of our ‘greatest’ months as we are blossoming out all over following graduation. For more information visit or to register contact

Things to Eat in

OXFORD By Liz Barrett Foster

I'm always searching for the best things to eat in Oxford. With more than 100 restaurants -- and counting, it becomes more difficult by the day to find favorite menu items. So, I took to social media, foodies, and friends to ask which Oxford dishes folks regularly recommend. I also asked which Oxford menu items they personally return to again and again. The result -- this monumental list of 100 things to eat in Oxford (in no particular order).

Remembering the Reforestation Project That Made Lafayette County The “Reforestation Capital of the World”


By: John Arrachea

n 1944, Congress approved

11 watersheds for works of improvement. For Mississippi, two of these were authorized – the Yazoo River Watershed and the Little Tallahatchie River Watershed, both in North Mississippi and administrated as one. They were known as the Y-LT Flood Prevention Project. Oxford was known as the headquarters for the USDA Forest Service.

Soils were as erosive as any in the world. Hillside farming and rain caused gullies, and streams were chocked with sediment. By the 1940s, large gullies were eroding at a rate of 300 tons per acre a year.

The Pine Project

In 1948, USDA Soil Conservation Service began planning, and USDA Forest Service began planting pine on 4.2 million erodible acres in all, or parts of 19 counties in Mississippi. Lafayette was one of these. These two agencies were responsible for ground leadership, technical assistance and financial help. Other federal and state agencies assisted in lesser roles. Congressman Jamie L. 50 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

Whitten supported the Project from before the beginning to the end. Pine seedling planting proved a good off-season job when the soil had ample moisture. Crews were able to receive their first check before Christmas. Eleven of Lafayette County’s planters, returning winter after winter, each planted over one million seedlings. They were recognized as members of the ‘YLT Millionaires Club.’ A Proclamation appeared in the

Oxford Eagle in 1959. Oxford Mayor Pete McElrea, stated, “I hereby proclaim Oxford, the Reforestation Capital of the World.” During 1958, 44,758,000 pine seedlings were planted on private eroded land in the Y-LT area, and Lafayette County received 6,480,000 of them that year.

Team Work

Having worked on the Y-LT for 18 years, I feel comfortable in speaking for the Forest Service family. The tree planters knew that their laborious work would transform the eroding gullies into a blanket of green. In time, these seedlings would grow into pulpwood and later logs. The forestry technicians encouraged the landowner to restore his land and later assist him in selling his first crop of pulpwood. The project forester, who usually transferred in a few years, gained valuable experience in administration and watershed management. The most valuable experience would be ‘Working with People.’

To get the job accomplished, the project manager cooperated with all federal and state agencies and with the forestry communities in the 19-county area. He inspected periodic Y-LT field activities. Beginning in 1948 and closing in1985, the seven project managers served with an average tenure of five years.

No Smoking

From the beginning to the last days, Information and Education (I&E) was a very important task of every professional forester. Fire prevention during dry times was foremost. The tree planters need not ask for a ‘smoke break’ while planting. Project foresters had an I&E quote from Smoky the Bear for the school children, that was sent to local newspapers and local radio programs on all subjects. Over the years, we toured 44 groups representing international countries. I remember speaking through an interpreter in 1973 to a group of scientist from the People’s Republic of

51 | Sign up for Daily Headlines from

China, explaining our gully treatment with pine seedlings. (Parts of China has very erosive soil.) As the years passed, tree planting gradually changed to preparing forest management plans. Many land owners had never sold a tree. These plans suggested thinning for pulpwood as the trees grew to size — making another sale when the remaining trees grow to saw-log size, a more valuable product. By 1983, a total of 5,000 forest management plans had been prepared, covering 581,995 acres.

John Arrechea was the Project Manager USDA Forest Service during the project and retired in 1985.
