Nice visit with ‘Coach’
Lots of times, young people just need a chance.
A couple of weeks ago when visiting Red Bay, Ala., for a retirement reception, I ran into several acquaintances from the past.
One of those, surprisingly, was coach L.E. Tyra.
Guest from South...

Letter To The Editor
Needs help with project:
I am in the fifth grade at Ripon Christian Elementary School in Ripon, Calif. I have adopted your state as a class project. I will be doing a report and making a display about Mississippi.
Towards the end of April or the beginning of May, my class will be having a “State Fair.” I will display and show everything that I have gotten and learned about your great state to my whole school.
It would be helpful to me if you could ask your readers to send me postcards of your state, maps, brochures, information about wildlife, industry, neat places to visit, statistics, sports teams and any other information and items your readers feel would be helpful.
I hope your readers will help me with my project. I’m looking forward to hearing from them and I will do my best to send a thank-you to them in May after our State Fair.
I am excited to learn about your state!
Thank you from California,
Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
