It seems as though about half of the people want to be able to abort a baby right up to the time for it to be born.  I’m in the half that believes there should be no abortions except in the case of rape, incest, or to protect the mother.  On the other hand about half of the people want to le…

Sir, you just hit the nail on the head. Great opinion piece (Jim Cegielski column of Sept. 10). Biden’s Independence Hall speech looked like it came straight from hell, and it probably did just that. Shame on this would-be dictator. Judas Joe Biden, and his Democrat denizens, are now operati…

Mrs. Flints letter last Thursday is the greatest piece of evidence I can present for the erosion of my faith in “American Democracy.” This is what we have to contend with: Low information voters who willingly believe endless falsehood’s under the pretense of “Our Democracy.”

I’ve been waiting impatiently for someone else to say something about the incident at the New York subway station. They have said plenty, but not about what I saw. This officer was having a dangerous fight with a 16-year-old, large for his age. It appeared the teen was going to kill him. His…

The very first letter I wrote to the paper a year and change ago was a response to Jim saying something along the lines of “Obama ushered in an age of socialism to America.” I rebutted that no, he didn’t usher it in, Obama is just when y’all started paying attention. Here I am again to say t…

With the current sad state of affairs under the “leadership” of the Biden Administration, I find myself wondering what, if anything, I can do to help rectify the situation. With grassroots organizations becoming more prominent in the effort to change the direction of the Country, it occurs t…

Who needs a high capacity magazine on a pistol or rifle? Not everyone for sure. Some people don’t need a homemade sling-shot. I don’t have all the answers to the problems of mass shootings. I do think there should be not soft targets. We need more security, security, security, for our childr…

I find it hard to understand why all these millions of migrants want to come to the United States. Undoubtedly they must have been doing pretty well where they were.

I call on someone in our Legislature to introduce a bill that would have “enhance penalty” for killing or harming an animal that’s a “registered” mascot. Cousin Wiley said: “Ocean Springs” is the home town of “Walter Anderson.” Walter would have water colored “Carl” for sure. “Walter” and “C…

I was really embarrassed when I read about the “Mother of the Year” assaulting the young lady umpire from Ellisville following a youth softball game. I have played in hundreds of baseball and softball games and never once saw or heard of one of the umpires being assaulted.

I didn’t for the longest time understand why there was such an uproar from teachers over Florida’s “Parental Rights In Education” bill, but as I’ve seen a flurry of articles about teachers molesting kids, it all started to make sense: These people are groomers.

I am writing to you to commend one of you staff members, Mr. Bradshaw. During a recent visit to Ellisville to locate my father’s grave, Mr. Bradshaw went above and beyond to assist me to find the location. Having only just learned of my father’s identity, my sister and I planned a trip to El…

Do you have valid concerns about Ketanji Brown Jackson’s sentencing of pedophiles? Do you think someone who cant define what a “woman” is shouldn’t be on the nation’s highest court? Well I’ve got bad news for you: You’re a racist now. Don’t shoot the messenger, that’s just how it is in our b…

Undoubtedly the Ukrainian people didn’t have an amendment like our Second Amendment. It’s almost unbelievable that people in a dangerous region like that don’t have a way to defend themselves. It take time to hand out weapons one at a time to civilians. Im sure a good many were killed by the…

Why in the world would they send Kamala Harris to Europe? She already has her hands full trying to take care of our border. That big and long cackle she gave when the reporter ask her a question was really a big embarrassment to the United States of America. She thinks whats going on over th…

The blueprint for dissent has been laid out, and in the unlikeliest of places. We all love to rib our neighbors in the Great White North for their funny accents and bagged milk, but the past week has shown they may be more ready to fight than we are.

I was a patient on the first floor of South Central Regional Medical Center in Laurel from Jan. 1-Jan. 5, 2022. I can’t say enough about the excellent care I received. The doctor, nurses and everyone that entered my room treated me with the utmost care and concern. The hospital staff does a …

I was separated from my family not wanting them to be alone years ago. I was sent to a foreign country for an extended period of time. I was finally returned home to find my family in need of a bread winner. The little money they got while I was gone was barely enough to live on.

The situation on the “Southside” of Laurel has become extremely vandalistic and destructive when a property owner expresses a genuine interest in the City of Laurel enforcing its zoning and planning ordinances pertaining to businesses in the residential area.

Well, I see we had our big birthday bash yesterday. Obama had to cut the size of the party down a bit. Instead of seven hundred he had to cut the size down to a couple hundred. I’m sure he picked the ones that gave big when asked, that’s what I would have done. I would want the billionaires …

Governor Reeves must remove Dr. Dobbs as State Health Officer immediately. Dobbs’ recent temper tantrum where he labeled folks as “anti-science Nazis” and “excuse monkeys” for expressing opinions about Covid-19 that differ from his own was immature and likely racist.
