Sound Off for February 18: Use your headlights in foggy weather

Drivers would be advised to do two things when driving in the fog: slow down and turn your headlights on. When the fog rolls in along the Coast most accidents occur when people follow too close and drive too fast.

Balance and success

Balance is the key to success.

Simplify education

Let’s figure out how to deliver education without all the crazy politics.

How weird is that?

I am not surprised many elected representatives refuse to have town hall meetings. The last one I went to With Steven Palazzo was a disaster. Most of the people who attended were there not to learn but to heckle Mr. Palazzo. After one hour I got up and left. Also, to show you how out of step I am with most Sound Off writers, I like my recycle bin and garbage bin. How weird is that?

Taking a dim view

Car manufacturers should be installing the dimmer switches on the floorboard so the phone yakkers would have an appendage to use if they so desire.

A correlation?

I’ve come to the conclusion that people who don’t turn on their lights when it’s foggy are the same people who do not use their turn signals.

You’re invisible

For goodness sake, folks. Please turn on your vehicle lights during hours of darkness and dangerous fog conditions. We cannot see you.

Medicare prediction

The “Lucky Few” writer must be fairly new to Social Security. Shortly, I predict Medicare will historically raise their fee that just happens to be about exactly what the Social Security increase was. So, when all of life's bills increase, we just get deeper in the hole.

A right to complain

A Sound Off writer says, "If you don't like the service, do it yourself." Even if I could, the city would continue to charge me $16.75 per month for garbage and recycling. Residents who are forced to pay for a service have a right to complain about how it is performed. My complaint is that Waste Pro in Gulfport no longer recycles glass.

Thank you, Public Works

Public Works of the City of Biloxi are at this very moment fencing off the city cemetery from Azalea Drive. This will prevent cut through and hopefully help stop parking and picnicking in the cemetery by eventgoers. Many thanks to Billy Ray Allen and Craig for getting this done.

Extreme pollination

I'm beginning to wonder if the greenish-yellow powder is being dispersed from all the aircraft flying over.
