JACKSON, Miss.–If your child is having trouble in their traditional school, because there’s trouble there or the classroom environment doesn’t suit them, maybe a charter school in your community is a good idea. Now there are even more groups applying. Here are some Monday news briefs to start your week:
CHARTER SCHOOL APPLICATIONS
Charter schools in Mississippi: Moss Point is just one of 10 places that could see a charter school in 2016. If your child can be helped in a non-traditional school, Mississippi now has that option, but it’s a process and applications are due for next year on the 15th to open up a charter school. Looks like 17 applications so far.
TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN
Strong armed robbery they call it. So it’s Saturday. You’ve got cash you ned in the bank by Monday morning. Just as you open the after hours deposit, a man runs up and grabs your money. Happened 3 o’clock Saturday afternoon in Mantatchie in Ittawamba County. The guy was white, mid 20s to early 30s, jeans, t-shirt, cap, in a white truck with blue stripes.
HOME INVASION MURDER
Imagine this. You drive up in your driveway, two guys come running out of the house and you run inside and your wife is dead. That’s exactly what happened Friday afternoon in Simpson County. Neoma Durr was the victim and Saturday police called off the search for the two guys. They believe the guys are long gone.
MISSING IN GAUTIER
Missing in Gautier, Desmond Moore. He disappeared last week and police say they can’t rule out murder. He’s a black man, 24, 5 ft. 9, deads. His mother is asking for your help in finding him. If you’ve seen him call Gautier Police.
MURDER OF RAPHAEL TAYLOR
If you know who killed Raphael Robert Taylor in Lauderdale County, police are asking for a phone. Throw some info their way, today.
FLAGS AT HALF STAFF
If you notice flags at half staff today, that’s just one way Mississippi is remembering state Sen. Terry Brown, who died last week of lung cancer. His funeral was Saturday, and probably before you got up, that’s when the flags were lowered.
