Anyone know?

Are there any organizations or nonprofits on the Coast that want donations of new or used Christmas cards?

Great editorial

Hear hear to the recent editorial “We have fallen.” Our compliments to the author.

Thanks, Sound Off

I’d like to sound off that there isn’t any place where people can whine and complain.

Thank you Sound Off.

Saints or ’Aint’s

Good news. Bad news. The good news is the Saints are playing well right now and should make the playoffs. The bad news is, if the defense doesn’t continue to improve, they won’t make it far in the playoffs.

Still mad. . .

The disrespectful behavior continues by the NFL. The Saints seem to be playing at a high level but this controversy continues to overshadow the usual excitement. And I remain angry and sad as I continue my boycott.

Wait your turn

If I’m in a checkout line with six items, and you walk up with one item and give the sad eyes look, wait your turn. If I let everyone go ahead, it just slows things down, and I’d be in line until closing.

Cut spending

Bill Crawford has it right in his Sunday article regarding the deficit. The way to reduce the deficit is to cut spending, but our career politicians are fearful that may cost them votes so they chose to further increase the deficit by cutting taxes, which reduces government income, which increases the deficit. It’s really not that complicated.

Take it elsewhere

Why don’t you take your noisy kids to a park or some other entertainment venue on the weekends? I am sure the rest of the apartments do not appreciate their hollering and shrieking all Sunday afternoon.

Hard decision

I agree with the letter to the editor in Sunday’s paper about it being a shame if Great Southern would close. The idea of the city of Gulfport getting involved will never happen as they are already involved with the Bayou Vista golf course by the airport. The stockholders at Great Southern have a hard decision to make.

Remove blinders

If you are paying attention, you would see that many schools on the Coast do very well compared to national standards. There are other areas of the state that don’t do well. The state Legislature doesn’t do anything special for these school that are doing well. If you took off your partisan political blinders you could see what some of the problems are. Charter schools have proven to help students in areas that have problems. Cute little quotes/sayings very seldom address real problems.
