Sound Off for Oct. 10: Thanks to all of our first responders


Thanks to all of the first-responders who were there whether we needed them or not.

Great job!

Thanks for putting out the “Hurricane Edition” of the paper. Your staff is to be commended.

I can take it

A third weekend without watching an NFL game. I can live without it, but can they live without me? Honor our flag!

Don’t come back

Thanks for the visit Nate, but you left too much trash. You’re not welcome back here again. Give us a week, and we will be back to normal. We are a resilient people, here on the Coast.

Do come back

Dear Cruisers: I want to thank you for bringing your beautiful classics to our Gulf Coast year after year for all of us to enjoy. I’m sorry you had to cut your trip short, but we wanted you to be out of harm’s way and keep your beauties protected. Year after year, you visit and you always clean up after yourselves, and I appreciate that. I do hope to see each and every one of you again next year. Y’all come back, ya hear!

Atta boy, Woody!

Thanks, Woody: Year after year Woody Bailey and his host of volunteers make our Gulf Coast proud. Just as I think it can’t get any better, it does. We thank you, Mr. Bailey, along with each of your volunteers, for bringing us a show-stopper that is bigger than any other in the country. Can’t wait to see you grow it again next year. You the man, Woody!

Diamondhead is to thank

In Monday’s Sound Off, there was a note that thanks the Property Owners Association employees for cutting the grass and picking up the trash on Exit 16 on I-10 in Diamondhead. Actually, the city of Diamondhead has been maintaining the interchange for the last five years, not the POA.

Job well done

Just wanted to thank our Sun Herald delivery person. After staying up all night watching Hurricane Nate come in, I went outside just before 6 a.m. to check out the damage around the house. Luckily, we just have a lot of debris in the yard, mostly tree branches and trash that floated in with the surge. As I got to the end of our driveway I found a pile of debris about a foot high, and our Sun Herald Sunday paper laying on top. Even with a Hurricane coming ashore our newspaper was there waiting on us to read it just like any other day. Thank you to our newspaper delivery person for a job well done. We are in east Pascagoula and hope you realize how much we appreciate your dedication to your job.
