Let kids be kids

I just got done reading the story regarding the basketball net in the “upscale” subdivision in Ocean Springs. My reaction was: really. This net has been up for nine months. Kids have been playing, practicing, exercising, been out in the fresh air and not playing video games, having a great time and now this neighbor is complaining. I understand the net is not set up on the owners’ property. I get that, but who cares. For nine months this boy and his friends are developing friendships, team work and having fun. So to the cranky neighbor, just mind your own business, this net is none of your business. Let the kids be kids and enjoy themselves. If the city was that interested, they would have cited this months ago.

Big difference

To the far-left liberal with the snarky comment: There is a big difference between taking a knee in prayer and taking a knee in hatred of our country. And if you don’t know, then bless your heart.

Fix it now

There is a large drainage ditch in our neighborhood. Before the Woolmarket area was annexed into Biloxi, the county filled the ditch in, for some unknown reason. Now, every time it rains, the neighborhood’s only road, the only way in and out, floods to the point of being unable to enter or leave. Since the annexation, the responsibility now belongs to the city of Biloxi. So I ask the city of Biloxi to please rectify the situation.

No disrespect

Tebow was a man who did not disgrace himself or his sport by disrespecting his country and his flag. That is the difference between Tebow, and the children on the field. The overpaid children who don’t seem to know any better.

Get permission

To the person who wanted to know if spring breakers and Scraping the Coasters could park their RVs anywhere along the Coast: Technically they can, but they must first get the permission of the property owners, or even rent space from property owners, as the Cruisers do. The Cruising gang does not simply drive up and park where they please. They get proper permission. And when they leave, the areas are properly cleaned.

Cruisin’ enjoyable

So glad to see Cruisin’ The Coast here. The beach was clean and the people were orderly. I wish I could say that about all the groups that come here. I really enjoyed the Cruisin’ The Coast people and cars.

Game substitutes

Now that I have stopped watching the NFL, I now have time to watch the reruns of speeches by Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters.
