Sound Off for June 27

Safety first

The palm tress planted in the median of U.S. 90 are just obstacles for people to run into, especially in the narrow parts of the median. They need to be pulled up and removed. Safety is more important than pretty landscaping.

Right to vote

Many people are complaining about Democrats crossing over to vote in the primary run off. Thad Cochran happens to be the senator currently representing them. Why shouldn't they have the right to vote to keep him if they think he is doing a good job?

Call blocker

Stop all the unwanted calls and get a call blocker. I received one call from each political party. I hit one button and that ended the calls. I wish I would have done this years ago.

Free country

The last time I heard the USA was a free country. We should be able to vote for whom we want. Chris McDaniel has no right to tell us that we cannot vote for a Republican if we are a Democrat.

Good luck

Come November, the Democrats who crossed over to vote for Cochran will not give him the time of day, and Mr. Cochran will be forced to seek Tea Party support. Irony, pure irony, good luck getting my support.

Will not be voting

I hope Cochran and his cronies are at peace with the unscrupulous tactics they and their Democratic buddies used for his re-election. I never thought that I would say it, but I will be one of those conservatives staying home come November.

Bring it back

To the person/persons who stole a lawn mower, a bicycle, and a non-working printer out of my garage on 23rd Avenue in Gulfport. I am not angry, nor am I upset. I am, however, disappointed. Your parents taught you better than that. I am giving you a chance to redeem yourself. Just bring these things back and all is forgiven. No apologies, no awkward moments, just put the stuff on our porch and leave. Thank you.

Fellow soldiers

In mid-June, my wife and I walked into the Cracker Barrel for lunch. As the hostess escorted us to the table, I noticed a group of veterans at the round table with their hats on and their vests with their patches on and Combat Veterans Association sewn across the back. I was wearing my Vietnam veterans baseball cap. One of the veterans noticed me. He told the other members of the association, and they all looked toward me, so I saluted them. As they were leaving, I waved at them. Soon after, our waitress came to our table and informed me that our meal was paid for. That shows the closeness of all combat veterans. I would like to thank them for their service and all combat veterans for their service.
