Sound Off: People are flocking to Louisiana to spend money on the lottery

Powerball tickets become hot commodities when the jackpot soars. The Mississippi Lottery is expected to start with scratch-off tickets sold at service stations before the end of the year, with Powerball and MegaMillions coming soon after that, state officials say.

Lost revenue

Hundreds of thousands of Mississippians are flocking over the border to get their Powerball tickets.

Search it

If you search SunHerald.com for “Crazy ants” (in quotes) you’ll find helpful articles, including those by our own Tim Lockley.

Pay attention

I say we should listen to the parents who are complaining about their kids not being able to open windows on school buses. Turn off the A/C and let them.

Bad business

Monopolies are dangerous. They influence laws, create barriers and strip everyone’s freedom.

It’s about money

Everyone is fighting over money. We as humans are pathetic. It is time to rise above the nonsense and help one another.

Really good story

I don’t often find articles in the Sun Herald that I like and enjoy. However the article in the Sunday issue “He came to hunt hurricanes...” is the most hope-generating news I have read in many years. Thank you.

Nice feature

Though not completely, I tend to be conservative in my viewpoints, but like most Americans, I firmly believe in free speech. I really appreciate the display of opposing positions in the recent “Pro and Con” Tribune News Service editorials in the Opinion section of the Sun Herald. Many thanks!

Correction

A Sound Off published Monday about Gulfport’s new garbage contract had incorrect information. Gulfport is maintaining twice-a-week garbage pickup, and once-weekly rubbish pickup. Recycling is every other week. Also, the city did not break a contract with the Harrison County Utility Authority. A city spokesman says, “The remaining HCUA members are not happy that Gulfport has its own new contract (as the existing one comes to an end on Oct. 1), and HCUA has negotiated its own, which has once-a-week pick-up for garbage, rubbish, and recycling.”
