WLOX Editorial: South MS is a tourism community that welcomes all

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - South Mississippi is a tourism community that rolls out the welcome mat to everyone. So, when tens of thousands of people come here on a beautiful weekend and enjoy our shoreline, we have a lot to be proud of. But the just completed spring break party had a few hiccups that need to be fixed.

We encourage everyone who has a stake in our coast to sit down over the next few months. Let's work together and map out a comprehensive strategy that welcomes our guests, improves traffic flow, and maintains the quality of life neighbors expect from their communities.

Spring breakers will be back next year. If community leaders, promoters and police put their heads together now, the 2018 party can be a smoother celebration for everyone.

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