Abby Bammerlin

Assistant News Editor Abby Bammerlin is a sophomore from West Chester, Ohio, majoring in journalism and political science. She joined TMS the first semester her freshman year and has never looked back! She was beyond thrilled to be on the editorial staff this semester. She enjoys writing about just about anything but has been focusing on local politics and the Oxford community. When she's not chasing stories, she can be found at Red River Gorge in Kentucky rock climbing. Some of her favorite memories are going down in the fall on weekends with just some climbing equipment and her camera. After Miami, Abby isn't sure what she wants to do, but she knows writing will definitely be a part of it.

Let them eat King Cake

Although my mom moved from New Orleans to Ohio in college and started our family, we still celebrate Mardi Gras every year. A big part of our tradition is sharing King Cakes — a giant cinnamon roll iced in the Mardi Gras colors of green, purple and gold — with our families and friends. 

Oxford's lights are one of the holiday traditions we will be able to count on this season,

Uptown transformed by dazzling lights

Behind the Oxford Community Arts Center (OCAC), there’s a transformation waiting to take place. As soon as the sun sets, what was once a quiet garden becomes illuminated with winter lights and local artwork.
