Dear Editor, The leaders of or communities who choose to close schools, offices, city services and the like, on a mere rumor of typical Northeast Mississippi winter weather are pusillanimous slackers who set an example of mediocrity for or children to follow.

Hundreds of our young men and women from Houston, Okolona and Houlka graduated from high school this week. They lined up in their caps and gown and strolled across the floor or field to pick up their high school diploma as their full name was called over the public address system.

Not long ago while preaching at Shady Grove I saw a very large black dog that resembled a black bear.
