Some of you might have seen this last week, but a mom in Georgia was arrested after she made her son kill his pet hamster as a punishment for bad grades
If that's not bad enough, she made him kill it with a hammer.
Is this the wildest punishment you've heard for bad grades? Or does anyone have a story that can top this one?
I haven't heard any new questions about the TPSD computer program since Sunday's story. I just wanted to create another forum in case anyone had some, I'd be glad to answer.
If you've got something burning in your mind, just post below.
Plantersville fifth-grader Aliyah Lee won Tuesday's Lee County spelling bee at the Hancock Leadership Center. After eight rounds and 32 words, the winning word was "competitive."
Nettleton's Brittany Hieb was second and Nettleton's Trey O'Neal was third.
Aliyah will advance to the MidSouth Spelling Bee in Memphis in March. The winner of that competes in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. in May.
See tomorrow's Journal for more about Tuesday's bee.
I'm working on a story package about the Tupelo Public School District computer initiative. Teachers have begun receiving their new computers and high school seniors will get theirs ini February.
One of the goals of the package is to answer questions about the initiative. Are there any specific questions you'd like to see me address. Please post them below or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
