Reeves hits Hood over liberal PAC donation
Jim Hood just cashed a check from a liberal PAC in DC that “stands on the fundamental right to abortion under Roe v. Wade” and promotes transgender pronouns for children in schools. Look under the hood—the radical liberals are all in to try and help him here.

Hood shoots a bottle in new ad for Governor
Tate Reeves and his out-of-state corporate cronies have spent millions spewing lies and slinging labels at me. It’s a bunch of lies.

In less than a week, residents will head to the polls and cast their vote in the 2019 November General Election.
Voting will begin at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, November 5. Polls close at 7 p.m. but if you’re in line by 7 p.m., you’re still entitled to cast your ballot.
WHERE TO VOTE
If you’re unsure where to cast your ballot, you can find that information on the Mississippi Secretary of State’s website. Just enter your home address into the Polling Place Locator found here.
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.
Meanwhile, Lt. Governor Tate Reeves was campaigning Tuesday in north Mississippi in what is expected to be a key battleground area in the gubernatorial race. Reeves is banking on President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to help win over undecided voters.

“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.
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.
The Mississippi Department of Corrections has been awarded a $1 million federal grant. The money will be used to expand re-entry and aftercare services to the southern part of the state.
The Second Chance Act Improving Re-entry for Adults with Co-occurring Substance Abuse and Mental Illness will assist 175 people leaving prison and returning to Hancock, Harrison, Pearl River and Stone Counties for three years.
SUNHERALD – After heated 4-hour meeting, Ocean Springs decides controversy over 3 trees on Front Beach
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.
Twenty-five current and former Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics agents who say they weren’t given raises mandated by state law are suing two officials and the bureau.
Reports say the lawsuit was filed last week against the bureau, Director John Dowdy and Public Safety Commissioner Marshall Fisher.
The lawsuit says Dowdy and Fisher intentionally failed to give fiscal officials necessary information to ensure money was budgeted to give agents pay raises based on their rank and experience.
It is no wonder that Mississippi is home to several shipbuilders, considering that the Gulf of Mexico, Mississippi River and Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway have more than 15 ports to serve the needs of the shipbuilding industry. Mississippi Public Universities also serve the needs of the shipbuilding industry by preparing students to build maritime vessels of all types, from battleships to yachts.
