This is in response to a letter Jessica Grant wrote about the homeless facility Howard County is trying to build in North Laurel in the opinion section of the Laurel Leader (Dec. 21). First of all we cannot compare the homeless men, women and children of this area to the homeless in Los Angeles and Florida.   Evidently she has never been around our homeless community. I tried it for three years, mostly in North Laurel. I have met some great people, also a few bad ones, but most of all we are like a big family that takes care of each other.   Don't get me wrong, it's a day-to-day struggle out there.

The pink flamingo-shaped lights decorating the balcony rail of a mobile home in Florida signal the level of taste on display in “The Great American Trailer Park Musical.” This 2005 off-Broadway musical indulges in lowbrow satire, but the music and lyrics by David Nehls and book by Betsy Kelso are highly skillful in conveying  lowly material.

Compared with other parts of the nation, things are nice in Howard County: the schools, the murder rate, the parks with nicely groomed softball fields.You may want to add new trailer parks to the list.Under a proposed modification of mobile home zoning rules discussed last night by the County Council, developers of mobile-home neighborhoods -- who scorn the term trailer park -- could build curved roads and place small parks and open spaces between the structures.But the new concept may have a price -- as in higher costs for mobile or manufactured home units in a county where lower-priced dwellings already are in short supply.
