MPACT needs more funding

Dear Editor:

College students and recent graduates are not the only ones having trouble paying off tuition debt. It turns out, the Mississippi Prepaid Affordable College Tuition (MPACT) program is in deep trouble with the tuition contracts they are obligated to meet.




Dear Editor:

A recent column by Jon Pritchett of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy had some useful suggestions to promote economic growth in Mississippi. Among them were eliminating unnecessary occupational licenses and regulations that may not be helpful. Two of his suggestions though would probably reduce economic growth.



An embarrassing run

Dear Editor:

 

On behalf of my city and our running community, I would like to apologize for the pathetic race that you just experienced. While I am not a city official, nor a member of the race organization, I do love Jackson and did love this race and I am embarrassed.




Dear Editor:

Illegals are ruining our country. The middle class is being squeezed into extinction. The hedonistic atheists have assaulted the Church. The morals and values of our grandparents have been labeled "old-fashioned" and "not cool" by the perpetually immature and ignorant.
