If your stomach is empty and you need someone to talk to, Dennis Van Oostendorpis is just the man to wain the woe.
Van Oostendorpis, owner and operator of 6‘N Tubbs on Jackson Avenue, said there is one thing he would like to make clear from the get go:
“This place is not a restaurant," he said, grinning. "It’s more social than that. You come in, have a slice, shoot the breeze, watch the game and split when you’re ready. 6’N Tubbs is a pizza joint."

The infamous term “bad economy” became all too real for the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.  

 

The infamous term “bad economy” became all too real for the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.  

Earlier this month, 112 UMMC employees were laid off from work due to a downturn in the economy. James Keeton, vice chancellor of affairs, predicts the loss of UMMC’s employees will save the medical center $12 million annually, according to The Clarion-Ledger. UMMC’s finances were reported to have been in the red last year, which prompted the sudden reduction in jobs.

Look like "The Real World" just got a real law suit. 

 

Since 1992, MTV has provided 26 seasons (520 episodes) of the “true story of eight strangers picked to live in a house, work together, and have their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real.” 

Few of us can remember of our lives before discovering this, the original, reality show.

To the Editor: 

 

This is a response to John Woods III’s opinion piece that appeared in The Daily Mississippian on Oct. 17. It is refreshing to see student interest in the doings of Faculty Senate, a transparent organization that held a regularly scheduled meeting last Tuesday to discuss, among other things, voicing support for a university leadership under fire. It is also refreshing to see this student openly expressing his right to free speech on this campus. 

May it remain unhindered for all of us.

Undiscovered musicians will perform tonight in front of the masses and fall prey to the harsh criticism that may or may not await them.  
The fans will choose their favorite, and he or she will rise to fame and have numerous posters and girls’ shirts with his or her face on them everywhere.
No, this is not American Idol, but rather a slightly exaggerated account of what is going to happen tonight at Soulshine Pizza: the Oxford Songwriters Showcase Open Mic.

If you are in the Union or Martindale, you are only a click away from hydration.

Not the click of dropping coins in a vending machine for bottled water, however, as students can now use one of the three hydration stations on campus to fill up their water bottles with cold, filtered water.

“I just can’t wrap my mind around what I was a part of.”

Those are the words of Ole Miss student Lauryn DuValle who still can't believe she deserves part of the credit for President Barack Obama's visit to Memphis on Monday.

He was there to deliver the keynote address for 155 graduating seniors from Booker T. Washington (BTW) High School.

Starting a business is never easy, and the restaurant industry has a reputation for being especially difficult.  

As the manager of one of Oxford’s newest restaurants, Rob Carpenter said he is aware of the challenge.

“We are just kind of taking it day by day,” said Carpenter, manager of South Depot Taco Shop.

“Because I think in the past year, something like 19 or 20 restaurants in Oxford have shut down, and that is a very scary statistic.”
