Just maybe there will be justice for little Cameron whose picture is to the left.  Last night I watched the Channel 12 news and saw where they have the man, (Brendan Barrett) who was accused of killing the 18 month old December 9, 2013.  Barrett was arested Friday on a warrant.  In the court, he pled not guilty.  He is charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, two counts of assault and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.  His bail will be set this morning, (Friday) at 8:30 a.m.  Binghamton police are not releasing any information about the investigation at this time.   You may check this story out on

Our continued prayers go out for the justification of this beautiful little girl whose life was snuffed out so early.   Patricia.





I have corrected and finished updating the info the Oxford Town Historian, Vicky House sent over.

The Gazette learned that there is a "rumor" going around that a town official, namely, the Town Highway Superintendent, Rick Granger wouldn't be running again for Town Highway Superintendent.  So, the Gazette contacted Mr. Granger, and to set the record straight....He will be running again for Town Superintendent. 
The Gazette also learned it had the wrong cell phone number for Rick.  His correct cell phone number is 238-6521.  Sorry about that Rick.

Jokes For Today
Bob was  in a terrible motorcycle accident and his legs weren’t in great shape, to say the least. After a couple of weeks of therapy, it soon became clear to the Doctor that they were just pushing off the inevitable. Due however, to Bob’s frail condition, the Doctor was afraid to give him the bad news.  Instead, he gave the sorry job to Bob’s wife of 40 years, hoping that she  would know how to break the bad news to him ever so slowly and gently.

“Honey”, said Bob’s wife Eva the next morning, “I’ve got good news and bad news, which one would you like to hear first?”

Bob, always in a morbid state, responded in his usual grumpy voice, “what do I care? Just give me the bad news!”

“Well dear,” said Eva cupping Bob’s hand with her two hands, “I hate to have to tell you this, but it seems like your legs are going to have to be taken off.”

Bob, barely able to hold his voice from cracking croaked out,  “Eva, what’s the good news?”

“The good news” said Eva happily, “is that that the gardener that was in here just before, said he may be interested in buying your slippers from you!”


Due to a job transfer, Brian moved from his hometown to New York City.  Being that he had a very comprehensive health history, he brought along all of his medical paperwork, when it came time for his first check up with his new Doctor.

After browsing through the extensive medical history, the Doctor stared at Brian for a few moments and said, ” Well there’s one thing I can say for certain, you sure look better in person than you do on paper!”


An Old man went to the doctor complaining of a terrible pain in his leg. “I am afraid it’s just old age”, replied the doctor, “there is nothing we can do about it.” “That can’t be” fumed the old man, “you don’t know what you are doing.” “How can you possibly know I am wrong?” countered the doctor. “Well it’s quite obvious,” the old man replied, “my other leg is fine, and it’s the exact same age!”



He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”   John 3:36.
