Tuesday, Attorney General Jim Hood, was standing on the steps of the state capitol touting more than $36 million his office will hand to lawmakers because of lawsuit settlements with his office. Hood is trying to campaign to Republicans to cross over and support him.

“I’m seeing a lot of them (voters) are Judge Waller voters. I think they are going to come over and vote for me in this race,” said Hood.

WLOX – Groundbreaking takes place for new state veterans home at Tradition

“They like to do the impossible before breakfast,” said Governor Phil Bryant, speaking of the Seabees, or the US Naval Construction Battalion for which his father served.

His emotional speech explained why the veterans home is an important part of the military experience.

“They have served, they have sacrificed. Many of them have left portions of their soul on foreign battle fields in the anguish of combat. So, they’re returning home and it’s their time to enjoy the freedoms that they fought so hard to preserve,” Governor Bryant said.

Now that the groundbreaking of the new Veterans Home in Tradition has happened, the work of building a place for our coastal retired service members can begin.

With only 480 beds allowed in VA nursing homes in Mississippi, and 600 already in place, the Mississippi VA had to get to work on an exception so that our veterans could enjoy those freedoms that the Governor spoke of.

SUNHERALD – After heated 4-hour meeting, Ocean Springs decides controversy over 3 trees on Front Beach

After heated 4-hour meeting, Ocean Springs decides controversy over 3 trees on Front BeachThe battle for the fate of three Live oak trees turned the city hall boardroom into a courtroom for more than four hours Tuesday.

At a special meeting, the Board of Aldermen voted 5-2 to deny the appeal of the Tree Committee’s decision in June allowing the removal of three Live oaks at 209 Front Beach Drive. That means the trees can be cut down…

…One side, led by Chief Justice of Mississippi’s Supreme Court Mike Randolph who owns property next door to the home, believes the trees should be saved. Randolph brought before the board multiple “expert witnesses” including an arborist, community members, lawyers and multiple architects.
