I'm a music-lovin' mom who does her best not to take life too seriously. I have 2 beautiful children who inherited my warped sense of humor. Yea, it was bound to happen.
Dad's a retired Colonel, so I've lived all over the place and I can tell you that there is no place like the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast, and you can try but chances are y'all will never rid yourselves of me.
In my spare time I write bad poetry, play the worst guitar you ever heard, read trashy romance novels vorasciously, love puzzles, am a self-confessed sci-fi geek and a card-carrying G.R.I.T. (Girl Raised In the South, in case you didn't know about us).
Drop me a line anytime, I love hearing from you and making new friends. firstname.lastname@example.org
Sanding.. Hanging lights. Anderson said a lot of the motivation for the renovation of a building on 31st Avenue is to get young people off the streets of Gulfport causing trouble.
"Everybody was pointing fingers. The kids are doing this. The kids are doing that," Anderson said. "I said to myself I was a kid at one time. We was always misjudged. I understand what the kids are going through."
Just For You will host dances,, and talent contests, but it won't be all fun and games. Anderson said motivational speakers will talk to the young people about making choices.
"We can educate them on how they should act out in the streets," said Anderson. "If they cause problems in here we know they're going to cause problems out there so we can stop them right here and put something on their minds instead of just trying to chastise them."
Sarah Coffman is the PTA vice president at West Elementary where Anderson puts on dances. She said she wanted to help him help keep kids safe.
"I think that's the only way that it's going to work is if the parents, the teachers, the local businessmen. Everybody has to work together," said Coffman.
Anderson said, "I tell you parents if you want a place where your kids can go and have a good time and get out of all of this chaos out in the world, drop them off. If you need to bring them here to stay with them and make sure everything is fine with them, it's okay. We're all working at this as one."
Just For You will host activities for elementary school children on Fridays from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. Then for middle and high schoolers from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. Admission is $5 and owners said there will be security.
