Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out

Jackson football

Yes, I think it's time that the people of Jackson congratulate the Jackson Indian football team for a great season. We are really proud of them, and we're sorry that they didn't get any further. But maybe next year. But we're still proud of them. Congratulations to all the boys. Good luck, boys.

Thank you

A big thank you to the man and two young women who paid for my meal at the IHOP restaurant on Wednesday, Nov. 12. Yes, I am a widow and eat alone a lot. There is always an empty seat beside me. I had just been to the dentist, so I wasn't feeling so great. But you brightened my day. I regret that I didn't get to thank you personally, but you were long gone, probably doing more good deeds. Thanks.

Obama, Congress

Well, I see Obama won't talk to our Congress. He just goes ahead and does things. But, oh, how he loves to talk to Iran. They're not our friend. He needs to talk to whom we elected to help run this country instead of acting like it's his country and we have no rights.

Tax priorities

Yes, it seems kind of funny how the city of Cape doesn't have money to work with the fire department or police department. But as soon as they get the tax passed again, then they got money to build or rework a sports center. Something needs to be done about the city wasting our tax money, or else cut our taxes in half.

Drug court is good

I was reading about the "drug court saving money and lives." It was totally refreshing to see the laughing face of Carrie Bell and Jeff Dye on the front page. It's just so good to see people turn their lives around. God bless each of you.

Post a comment

OH NO! We cannot call the Jackson team Indians. We will be discriminating against all Indians. This is a bunch of bull and everyone of you know it to be true! I am not Indian but, If I were, I would be proud to be called Indian! I think you dishonored the Indians when SEMO was forced to rename their team! I would love for them to take their old name back and tell the ones that caused this to happen to keep their noses about twelve inches back into their heads!

How many times has the public heard the words "do nothing Congress" ?

Complaining is rampant in Washington DC , everyone are guilty .

Jackson football: Congratulation to all the high school sports programs, the cheerleaders, and the fans for a great football season....now it's on to basketball. Let's not forget those who don't play sports for they also contribute in their own ways for the good of the school.

Thank you: Pay it forward and spread good cheer.

Obama, Congress: Wish the Turkey-in-Chief would work with the turkeys in Congress and get something done.

Tax priorities: Just like the Wal-Mart beggars, the city begs for more money, then after they get the increase they go out and spend it on something not needed then it's back to begging for more.

Drug court is good: People helping people to turn their lives around and promote good will to mankind would stop the future Fergusons.

And that's the way it should be....Thanksgiving Day November 27, 2014....Happy Thanksgiving to my speak out friends.

Obama talking to congress, congress doesn't talk among themselves except to gripe about the president.
