Articles in the Rankin County News

This week's articles involving the Reservoir area of note include:

  - Bond set at $100,000 for teacher charged with statutory rape.  60 year old Jackson public school teacher brings 14 year old to Lakeshore Park for capital crime offense.  Can't get away with that in Rankin County.

  - Taste of Flowood April 10.  5th Annual event at the Refuge golf course is coming up.  The City hopes to have 30 restaurants participate this year.  Space jump, face painting, live music.  $10 for Flowood Chamber members; $15 for non-Chamber members; free for kids under 12.  See prior post.

  - Legislation would allow school districts to set starting dates for school year.  It appears the legislature repealed a law they passed just last year that would not have allowed schools to begin earlier than August 18, 2014.  RCSD Superintendent Richard Morrison pointed out that would have required students to take first semester's final exams after Christmas Break.
