COPY-Mississippians pull together once again in our time of need

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has most all of us concerned about what effect it might have on our beautiful barrier islands and the coastline we call home. It is like an approaching hurricane that is stalled in the Gulf and we are not sure whether it will head our way.

And just like during hurricane season, we all need to prepare for the worst, while hoping for the best. That's what thousands of you have already done by signing up to volunteer to help with cleanup should it be needed.

It is wonderful to hear that the residents of our coast want to be involved, but we are not surprised, because South Mississippians have shown that they pull together and help each other in times of need.

We are a resilient people, we showed the world that after Hurricane Katrina. No doubt this challenge is a new one for us, but working together and facing this coastal crisis with calmness and determination, we will show the world that we can survive and flourish once again.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com, or post your comments below.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
