Dear Editor:

I am writing in response to an opinion piece written by Keith Dunn in the December 21 issue of the Northside Sun entitled “Separate but not equal still exists.” In the article, he compares education and facilities at Madison County Public Schools with those at Jackson Public Schools.

Dear Editor:

By PATTY FURR,

As the executive director of the Jackson Hinds Library System, I am writing to correct the inaccuracies in the article entitled, “Double Taxed” by Anthony Warren in the Thursday, October 12 edition.

Dear Editor:

Recent hearings by Congress with Navy officials regarding the deaths of 17 Navy sailors in collisions of the USS McCain, the USS Fitzsgerald, the USS Lake Champlain and USS Lake Antietam cited budgetary, operational, training and operational management and leadership.

Dear Editor:

I just wanted to correct a comment you attributed to me. I am not opposed to gates in all instances. I do have a problem when city policy caters to the needs of the politically and economically powerful and does not provide explicit protections to those who are not.

Dear Editor:

Thank you for your article which highlighted the success of the city's 21 "Traffic Calming Devices" aka speed bumps being installed after significant citizen and city collaboration over a decade. It has been a long road for all involved, one which any participant could have abandoned eons ago.
