Lance Cpl. Cody G Watson falls in Iraq

According to his mother, Susan Watson, Lance Cpl. Cody G. Watson, 21, from Oxford, phoned home a few days ago complaining that he was sick.  Watson collapsed and died while in formation on Dec 6th. The family hasn’t been told the exact cause of death at this time.
            Watson, a field radio operator, joined the Marines last year and was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 10th Marine Regiment, an artillery battalion comprised of three firing batteries and a headquarters battery. The battalion is stationed at Camp Lejune, North Carolina when not deployed. He assumed his station in the Anbar province west of Baghdad in September.            
     After high school, Watson wanted to join the Marines, to, in his words, “do something that would make him proud of himself… that he wanted to join the best.” He even managed to like boot camp.
     His death was under investigation, said Staff Sgt. Timothy Edwards, a spokesman for the 2nd Marine Division.Lance Cpl. Cody G. Watson is survived by his father, Brian Watson, and sister, Lacey Watson.


Ohatchee teens taken into custody

     In a major instance of crime doesn’t pay, Tuesday morning around 1AM a Calhoun County sheriff’s deputy with a correctional officer in tow, responded to a call about suspicious behavior on Tiffany Lane in Ohatchee. When they arrived they noted three teenagers looking into the windows of cars. They caught two of them, while the third escaped, if only temporarily. They expect to make his acquaintance soon.
     It turned out that the car driven by the suspects was stolen… and to make matters worse, a stolen pistol was also reclaimed at the scene.
     The teenagers, both age 16, were taken into custody, and their names won’t be released because they are minors. They are suspected of being involved in several other thefts in the Saks and Weaver area including a burglary at Circuit Court Judge Malcolm Street Jr’s house last week.


Tuesday night fire at Cracker Barrel in Oxford

     Tuesday evening at 7:22 pm, the Oxford Fire Department rolled on a fire call to the popular Cracker Barrel Restaurant in Oxford. The fire was kept to a room which was used to store cleaning supplies.
     Only one injury was reported…an employee with a minor case of smoke inhalation was taken to the Regional Medical Center.
     The manager, Mark Larimer, said that there were 40 to 50 customers in the building at the time of the incident, and all were safely evacuated.
     Employees had the power back online by 8pm and after mopping up, opened normally for business yesterday morning. The possible cause for the fire was said by one employee to be an overheated light bulb.
     The Oxford Fire Department had to depart for the fire in the middle of their annual Christmas party, leaving family and friends behind to carry on.


New Skateboarding park for area?

Tuesday evening at the Oxford City Council meeting, council members voted on a resolution to help support the building of a local skateboarding park, possibly as a joint undertaking by Oxford and Anniston. While it doesn’t mean that one will be built, it helps the Skate Calhoun Committee, chaired by local businessman Fred Couch, when it comes to finding funding for the project.
     Couch said in an interview that a year or so ago he saw a boy riding his skateboard in a church parking lot. Having never given much thought to skateboarding he questioned the youth who said there weren’t any good places to ride. The idea was born then to find a way to build one.
     Research showed that skateboarding parks aren’t profitable, so he decided that it would have to be done by the community, much like a softball field. He broached his idea to the Anniston Rotary Club and they liked it so much that they granted him $2000 and gave him their full support.
     The Calhoun County Commission, Weaver, and Jacksonville have all passed resolutions of support similar to Oxford’s.
    Couch estimates the cost for a good skate park at $45,000 which is not nearly so much as a typical sports build, but enough so that he knows he has a lot of work ahead of him.
