  • Harrison County youth missed call to be great Americans

    To the editor:

    I heard that Harrison County schools had not aired the President’s speech to school children. I thought, at the time, it must have been an isolated situation - surely the entire system would not have denied our own President the first amendment rights.

    I stand corrected.

  • ‘Harrison County School System, Grade F’

    When I sent my child to school last Tuesday it was with the full expectation that he would have the opportunity to view the President’s address to students. As I came to find out, the vast majority of students in Harrison County were not given the chance to view the address at that time. I began making phone calls to uncover the reasoning behind this.
