The Internet was abuzz earlier this week over a photo taken of Lindsay Lohan’s teeth. They were, in a word, disgusting. 

They were not the teeth of a 25-year-old fading Hollywood starlet, but the teeth of a meth-addicted “Deliverance” extra. While the teeth photo seen around the Internet was troubling, what was even more troubling and less-widely publicized was that LiLo had once again been charged with violating her probation and could face up to 18 months in jail this time around.

Theater season is now in full swing, with performances of both amateur and professional levels filling the multiple spaces of the University of Mississippi campus.

This weekend and next, Ole Miss Theatre can be seen in Meek Auditorium with the first “Second Stage” show of the season: “Some Girl(s),” directed by Rory Ledbetter.

Second Stage, while sounding demeaning, is a new experiment from the theater department that more closely resembles the Off-Broadway productions of New York.

What began as a hobby for Patsy Engelhard less than two years ago has turned into a passion and a thriving business over the course of seven months.

Engelhard, owner of Knit1, a yarn shop located behind the Square, said that about a year and a half ago an interest in the hobby developed into a passion over the course of just 24 hours.  

“Four months after I lost my job, my sister said ‘Why don’t you try this?’ and handed me a pair of knitting needles,” she said. “And I just fell in love with it.”

Through a combination of research, eavesdropping and a special thing I like to attribute to intuition, I have done my best to gather, sift through and assemble the best fashions for ladies this spring.

Through a combination of research, eavesdropping and a special thing I like to attribute to intuition, I have done my best to gather, sift through and assemble the best fashions for ladies this spring.

It is out with the new and in with the old.

Put away the mod prints and structured blouses and save them for the next generation of eager, crowd-pleasing yuppies.

That’s right, I’m talking lace, long, billowy bell-bottoms and my personal favorite: crochet.
