Thirty-five years ago we did not have adequate funding. I remember, as homeroom mom buying reams of paper because of lack of funding. Will this nonsense ever end? All our schools and all children deserve better.
In my opinion the best column in the newspaper today is written by Walter Williams the professor from George Mason University. All races will benefit from reading his column.
Never miss a local story.
I don't understand
I completely understand the frustration of everyone who lives and works in East Biloxi. The work done in our subdivision was almost a year over schedule, and neither HNTB nor the contractor cared about the aggravation we were going through. I just don't understand why they would tear up all the streets at once rather than doing the work in phases or sections.
Bless all veterans
I was a little girl during World War II and my three brothers were in the military -- the oldest was in the Navy; second in the Air Force; and youngest in the Merchant Marines. We lived in the country and my little sister and I gathered scrap iron (as was requested back then), and we were sure that we were helping win the war since the planes and ships could be built with all the scrap iron we gathered. Veterans Day is especially special to me. God bless all Veterans!
Enforce traffic laws
I would like to know why there is not more traffic enforcement on the Gulf Coast. The norm here is to roll through stop signs, constantly speed, make turns that cause oncoming traffic to brake, and just overall aggressive driving. I constantly see serious traffic infractions being committed but rarely, and I mean very rarely, do I see any traffic enforcement. Come on, law enforcement, how about trying to make our roads safer by enforcing the law.
Enough is enough!
When are the people of this country going to wake up and say enough is enough, and demand a smaller and better government? Why do we have 70- and 80-year-old politicians that have been in office for 40-plus years? It's not because they care about us. It's because they don't want to give up all that money they're making from lobbyists and special interest groups.
