Water's clean and clear

In response to the Sound Off caller regarding clean water: Moss Point has had clean, pure water since 2008, thanks to a $15 million reverse-osmosis system.

Frying pan into fire?

Both Hillary and Bernie want to admit hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees into the U.S. But to hear them tell it, our country is a horrible, evil, miserable nation. Given this, why would anyone want to bring any Syrian refugee into this mess?

Scary place to drive

It saddened my heart to read of the auto accident on U.S. 49 and Mississippi 53 that claimed the lives of three people. I have been expecting it, but praying it would never come to pass. The drivers of that area -- mostly pickup trucks -- are vicious and rude. They swerve between cars and rush across the highway at the Kangaroo Station. I have never seen anyone wait until traffic was clear before make a left turn to enter U.S. 49 South. The speed limit north of O'Neal Road is 60 mph. Why? That may have been acceptable before "city" came to the country, but no more. Subdivisions are popping up everywhere. This means families and children. Slow down, please! The life you save may be yours or your child's. Next wreck will be at Old 49 North and 53. Cars turning west onto Mississippi 53 have poor visibility and the speed limit is a suggestion.

Pass Road is a nightmare

I love Pass Road with all my heart, all my soul and all my mind. I have spent the bulk of my career working in several places along there in Gulfport and Biloxi. I shop there almost daily. I have lived, loved, laughed and been happy, and even cried at times, along that historic road. But something MUST be done about its present-day traffic problems. Almost every day, I witness fender-benders and worse, and it is impossible to turn left at numerous places without driving through business parking lots and taking U-turns. What is to become of Pass Road?

Let's help the homeless

It's heartbreaking that a veteran has to be homeless. There is no excuse. Biloxi can come up with $600,000 for temporary paving, yet those who served our country have to sleep in tents or wherever. Shame on us! The city could build small units with one bedroom, bath, kitchen-living room combo. I remodeled a two-bedroom that didn't cost that much. With all the volunteers in this area, plus casinos and other businesses, would donate material/time if asked. Many vets could be off the streets, as well as other homeless. Put the money where it's most needed -- people helping people.

Not a suitable leader

Sorry but I have to disagree with you. Hillary is clearly the candidate least suitable to lead.
