School taxes

Regarding the article “Potential rise in school tax bills a concern” (June 11):

If they’re so bothered by having to pay these higher taxes, then maybe they’ll finally integrate their children into the public school system and stop shipping them to Pillow Academy. The public schools in Leflore County aren’t being properly funded for one reason only, and it’s not because of declining population.


Father’s Day feature

Thank you for the Father’s Day feature in the Lifestyle Section (“These dads get it done,” June 15).

The diversity displayed is very refreshing. Well done.
