Concerning the four-lane bill that might become law July 1, 2018, I strongly oppose this law. It will cause traffic to back up on the highways.
I frequently travel U.S. 98 East to Hattiesburg, and if we have to stay in the right lane it will back up quickly. I thought that was the purpose for four lanes to begin with.
I voted for Ken Morgan the first time he ran because of his concern for the Pearl River erosion due to Jackson’s crazy way of regulating the reservoir’s floodgates. His stance again has got my vote.
Several weeks ago I came upon a copy of a letter to the editor I submitted to The Columbian-Progress several years ago. Its text reflected my thanks and appreciation to the citizens of Marion County and the surrounding area for 25 years of support and confidence.
During the last few years, I have noticed an ever increasing amount of double-standard views on an also ever-increasing number of topics. The topic for my soapbox rant is the use of double standards in our tax system. There are a number of large corporations in our state that wish to announce their support for an increase in fuel tax.
