Faith makes difference

In response to the Sound Off wondering why you don't see shootings in parochial schools, the answer is simple. Discipline, accountability, compassion and most importantly faith is what makes the difference.

Time to move on?

All I hear when I listen to the powers that be in Biloxi talking about revitalizing Downtown Biloxi is yada yada yada. It's all been said and tried before. It's never worked and is unlikely to in the future. That part of Biloxi is never going to be the thriving area of old. Its time is over. Time to move on.

Clean it up

Moved into a apartment. Started getting new neighbors. All I can do is shake my head. They have cleaned their car out and tossed the trash onto the pavement. The trash isn't mine but I pick it since it's so close to my apartment. Born and raised here in South Mississippi and I was taught better. How about cleaning up behind yourself.

A brilliant idea

I’m 65 years old and, until we were provided with the rolling recycling can, have never recycled before. Now, instead of having a waste can overflowing, my waste can is less than half full and my recycling can is full. My kudos to HUCA for this brilliant idea.

Losing the power

The GOP donors know they will lose their power if their party in Congress goes into the minority status.

Love everyone

People who love their country yet hate the rest of the world are arrogant and narrow-minded.

Make contact

Yep, you have a right to complain but why not complain to the city and the garbage company instead of writing to a newspaper column? Also, may I suggest moving? That may help too. Another thing, just throw the glass away or as I've suggested, find a recycler that takes glass and take it to them.

Children benefit

People talk about SNAP benefits like every single person with food assistance is out of work, mooching off the system. Not true. I personally have 2 different jobs, and 3 kids, and food is horribly expensive. Especially healthy food, and produce. I am very grateful for my SNAP card, because it lets me feed my kids good stuff. I am a hard working single mom, and my children benefit from SNAP.

Sudden expertise?

I side with FOX commentator Laura Ingraham in regards to those celebrities who open their mouths without a clue of subject knowledge! Yes, they are entitled to their opinions but whether Hollywood elite or overpaid sports figures -- their status does not give them sudden expertise.
