Spring Breakers Assess Whether They WIll Be Back Next Year

On the last official day of Black Spring Break 2001, many visitors were headed home, but others tried to savor the party a little while longer. Some first-timers say curiosity drew them to the coast.

"Since I ain't never been, you know I just wanted to have a little look for my own self because I heard that last year was cool," Duriel Davis of McComb said.

Black Spring Break gave "C-Ham" of Moss Point the perfect opportunity to make an entrance in style. He showed up in a limousine. He says he's impressed by this year's street party.

"Compared to last year I'll rate it at one hundred," C-Ham said. "The police force has been wonderful, the people have been wonderful."

Not all the Spring Breakers will take away fond memories of the Gulf Coast. They say they are considering making this Black Spring Break their last. They say their Spring Break was ruined by traffic problems and massive towing. However, not all the unhappy visitors are staying away next time.

"I'm going to come next year because I feel like they put us in an uncomfortable mode to stop us from coming," Southen Miss student Robert Gilmore said. "So I'm going to come."

    Christmas, it is the season to be jolly. The season to be happy and giving. The season to get some days off from work. But we don't think anyone would disagree that as much as anything, 'tis the season to be driving and heavy traffic. It seems that everybody is on the streets as we count down the days for Christmas shopping.
