ANNOUNCEMENT: I have just learned that Dr. Perry and his wife Kim were killed in a plane crash this past weekend {August 14, 2016) with two other couples as they returned from a dental conference in Florida. Dr Perry was such an extraordinary man that I struggle to find words to describe this loss – for his three beautiful children whom he loved and adored, for his family, his colleagues and the Oxford, Mississippi community. Please say prayers for the Perry family. Funeral information here. Contributions in memory of the Perry’s may be made to St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church Building Fund, 416 South Fifth Street, Oxford, MS 38655 or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105-1905.  Entitled “Our Oxford Family Memorial Fund,” a special fund has been established to support the families of the Perrys and the other two couples killed in the crash. Go to www.ouroxfordfamily.com or send checks to P.O. Box 1234 – Oxford, MS 38655.

So Perry built the Oxford-Lafayette Sportsplex. Giving kids access to play baseball and soccer meant finding ways of making the Sportsplex economic to use and maintain. Coaches and parents volunteer and LED lighting cuts costs to the bone.

Think about how much the Internet and technology have changed your life in the past 10 or 20 years. I could begin to recount countless examples, from the ease of pricing and purchasing airline tickets to automobiles, and the ability to research esoteric and specialized topics through Google. But no matter how many examples I give, it would only scratch the surface and be incomplete. And, you’d think of countless more.

The goal, Yates wrote, is “reducing — and ultimately ending — our use of privately operated prisons.”
