Sound Off for April 30

Things to come?

Was this storm that woke us up around 3 a.m. Thursday a dry run for an up-and-coming hurricane? Our backyard will now be a swimming pool for summer.


The most accurate storm and rain predictor? All you have to do is open up the oyster reefs. For sure a rain storm will follow.

Bad move

I kept hearing that Ted Cruz was really smart but looks like they were wrong. By picking Fiorina he showed no common sense and shot himself in the foot.

Investigate this?

I read where a man was bitten by a K9 deputy after fleeing from a traffic stop. Is there ever an investigation as to whether the bite was a justified bite?


When 2 percent of the population tells 98 percent of the population how it is to be, that is odious!

My pick

Without a doubt Donald Trump has tapped in the national anger of Americans over the radical Obama agenda and Republican inaction. But, Trump is not a certified conservative and is deceiving millions of Americans. The Bible says, "Test the spirits to see if they are of God." (1 John 4:1) Well, the Holy Spirit witnesses to my spirit that Donald Trump is wrong for our country in these perilous times. Ted Cruz isn't perfect, but his spirit seems more in line with the values of true conservatives.

Repeal it

HB 1523: I really appreciated the list in the paper letting me know which companies I can be proud to support in the future. At least we now know which ones are sensible instead of ridiculous. The quicker this gets repealed the better. Then once we get something done about the flag we might can hold our heads up .... a little higher anyway.

Thanks, kind lady

In the middle of the hard downpour this morning, traveling with my son to the airforce base, my car was overcome with water, sitting in the road, cars splashed more water, getting it in my car. One person stopped to help me. She got me and my young child to her car to wait for my help to arrive. I didn't get her name, but she was driving a white car. She was dressed in black. Her shirt said security, and Treasure Bay was on it. Your kindness was a blessing to me and my son. You saw how scared I was, because I had my child. All I can say is, thank you. I sincerely hope you read this. To the CEO of Treasure Bay, this lady went above and beyond to help a total stranger, while trying to get to work. I only hope she made it safely.
