    Term limits or not?

    There’s a chance Mississippians could vote for an initiative that would limit the number of consecutive terms someone could hold in a particular office; it would be the third time since 1995 that voters have had that opportunity. Our view is that we exercise term limits on all office-holders when we cast our ballots. (April 21, 2015, Page 4)

      Which famous American woman would you honor?

                Let’s get every school a literacy coach, more assistants

                It’s good news to hear from the Mississippi Department of Education that 78 literacy coaches have been added for schools around the state.
