Dream big

In my opinion the best most significant line in President Trump’s State of the Union speech was, “Americans are Dreamers, too.” I was told my entire life to dream big and accomplish bigger.

Trump in 2020!

If the Democrats are testing the waters for another Kennedy presidential run, then all I can say is ... Trump wins in 2020!

Plan better

If Jackson County is successful in bringing retail development to Cook Road, I hope they plan it out better than the Promenade did. Driving through the retail areas is very difficult as the roadways are very poorly laid out and visibility is nonexistent in some areas.

Kindergarten moment

During the State of the Union speech, some members of Congress showed the world how to act like a 3-year-old child when things are not going your way.

Get a sense of humor

I’m one who watches the Grammys show annually and I have always enjoyed the music and humor. If the man in the White House acted presidential, I’m sure he’d be treated like a president. Get a life ... and a sense of humor!

Get on the right path

We need sidewalks and bicycle paths in the city and rural areas to promote better health without fear of getting hit. I agree with the one who said to have more than a white line on Cowan Road to protect us from a car crossing over and hitting a bicyclist.

Attention, Walmart employees!

I shop regularly at Walmart (mostly Waveland and Pass Christian) and would like to praise their employees. They are consistently helpful and friendly, going out of their way to take care of customers.

Hillary’s game rules

I was playing a board game with my granddaughter when she was about 5 years old. She all of a sudden jumped up and said, “I win.” I told her that was against the rules. She responded, “My game, my rules.” I believe Hillary Clinton has taken a page out of my granddaughter’s playbook. Hillary’s game, Hillary’s rules.

Roosters are here

Where are those roosters? Some of them are in Gulf Hills. I hear them every morning when I go out to get my paper.

Numbers on buildings

Why isn’t it a requirement for professional buildings to have a street number on their buildings so people will know where to find them? With time so limited, it is frustrating trying to locate a building when there are no numbers listed on buildings.
