TMS reporters span nation for Women’s March

NASHVILLE — Jack Evans and Jake Gold Elizabeth Davidson is 66 years old. She protested the Vietnam War and Kent State shootings in the 70’s. She started a family in ‘85. She beat leukemia in 2016. And just under two weeks ago, on Jan. 21, 2017, she helped to organize the Nashville Women’s March. “I am marching, myself, personally, because I do believe that love Trumps hate,” said Davidson. “But in particular, because I don’t want to be afraid, but I am fearful because a man who knows nothing about politics, which is, you know, a job, is the...

Miami pledges funds for Oxford Amtrak

An hour outside the nearest major city, Oxford can sometimes feel disconnected from civilization. That’s why the years-old rumor of an Amtrak station is so exciting for students: it’s a relatively cheap, easy way to get to Cincinnati and Chicago. But after years of being just that — a rumor — the city and University have recently taken major steps to bring the passenger train to Oxford. It’s hard to know when anyone started thinking about adding an Amtrak stop to Oxford. The first documented proposal came from four interested students in May 2009.

Student Disability Services, Rinella move to Shriver

Bonnie Meibers, Senior Staff Writer Miami’s Student Disability Services (SDS) and Rinella Learning Center have new homes this semester as part of upgrades to Shriver Center. Since the 1990s, SDS and Rinella had been located in the basement of the Campus Avenue Building (CAB), a locale SDS director Andrew Zeisler said had its disadvantages. “CAB was a nice space and it served its purpose at the time, but we were in the basement,” Zeisler said. “Philosophically, that’s not a good place for disability services to be.” Now, SDS is more accessible than ever, thanks to $25,000 in accessibility upgrades...

Humans of Oxford: Karen Mayet: Don’t stop the beat

No matter what she’s doing — working, walking, sitting in class — if you see Karen Mayet, odds are she’s thinking about one thing: music. At only 5 years old she tried to soothe her younger brother, Rod, who was fussing in the backseat, by creating her own lullaby. She was awed by the melody’s power to close his eyes, though now she admits that he probably fell asleep because he was 3 and it was late. Rod fell asleep and Karen fell in love. Two years later Karen was practicing on a small, homemade stage in her basement,...
