Sound Off

Sound Off for February 16: Were the Mardi Gras floats too loud?

Beads lay in a puddle of water in Gulfport. Some beads and throws may contain lead and other chemicals, and there may be lead in the soil along the parade routes, according to the Louisiana Department of Health. Precautionary measures should be taken to reduce exposure for children along parade routes.

The lucky few

I'm one of the lucky few. I got an increase in my Social Security deposit and it made me smile. Then Cable One took it away and my smile went away, too.

Too loud?

Anything over 85 decibels from a one-time exposure to loud sounds can cause damage to one’s hearing. The sound systems on the floats of Biloxi’s Mardi Gras Parade had to far exceed that number. I can only imagine what damage may have been caused to the hearing of the young parade goers from hours of the constant blasting . In the future please turn the noise levels down to safe, lawful and a more enjoyable levels

Needs to change

School is torture. It needs to change.

Do it yourself?

We pay good money for garbage service. I pay $16.75 a month. That's a pittance compared to all my other monthly bills. Some people just have to moan and groan. Yes, I will say it again, if you don't like the service, do it yourself. I bet you couldn't even do that and be satisfied.

Do your job

Maybe this country would learn to get along better if Congress would set the example. Stop the bickering and do your job.

Time to talk?

So, do we finally get to talk about gun control now?

Too much fun?

Tulane hoopsters looked "too lame" versus East Carolina. Missed a lot of free throws. Maybe too much Mardi Gras?

A meddling mind

Is Russian meddling any different than American meddling?

Hello Mr. Gates

Newsflash to Bill Gates: The U.S. lost its global leadership a long time ago.

Good faith?

Trump is not dealing in good faith regarding DACA. Democrats should call his bluff; tell him his price is too high; and let the country witness on TV, the ugly details of Republicans throwing these kids out, starting in March

Time to clean?

It is time for President Trump to clean out the FBI and the Justice Department.

Better service needed

The IRS has become inefficient, rude, and almost impossible to deal with. I went to the Gulfport office and they would not let me in without an appointment. I called the 800 number was transferred to another 800 number. After waiting a long time, I got a human and she asked me what the purpose of the appointment was, and I explained it, and she said I could do it online, and I said I needed a personal appointment, then she said their scheduling system was down and I'd have to call back. And they expect US to pay our taxes on time?
