This newspaper has come up in several topics.
An item that caught my eye was on today's front page, "Kids at school not going hungry" sub "Local school districts provide both breakfast and lunch to students". It leads off with mention of an area child dying of starvation. Supposedly, that "has many wonderinng what programs are available to make sure children get the nutrition they need."
Why were only local public school lunch programs mentioned? Aren't there private schools also? What about children who are home schooled or under age of enrollment?
Why not mention WIC, food stamps, area food pantries?

WIC vouchers and Food Stamps don't taste very good. It takes a parent to go buy the food and help prepare it, that seems to be the problem.

After living in Blytheville for 40 years I moved away from the drug dealers and corruption in the police departments and the sheriffs departments. Blytheville is a dirty place to live.

any grown person who sits by and will allow a child or anyone for that matter starve needs to have their ass kicked up between their shoulders and then sent to hard labor prison.

Looks like there are a bunch of parents who can't or won't feed their kids so the tax payers have to. What kind of messed up deal is that?
