Renee Areng, the head of the regional tourism bureau said she has heard of any conventions canceling because of what many perceive as an anti-LGBT law signed Tuesday by Gov. Phil Bryant. But it was the talk of the Southeast Tourism Society meeting this week in Baton Rouge.

At one corner in Biloxi, Mississippi, federal spending stretches as far as they eye can see.
Mississippi gets almost half of its state budget from the federal government. Federal grants pay Mississippi' cities hundreds of millions each year. You can say the state gets a good return on investment for the federal taxes its residents pay.

I moved to Mississippi from Illinois in 1989. And every time some jerk suggests I go elsewhere, hell is a popular destination among those wishful thinkers, it just makes me want to stay longer. But Becky Guidry is a private citizen and she deserves better treatment from elected officials. Republicans should apologize for their colleague's boorish behavior.
Ever hear a Mississippi lawmaker get tongue-tied? Then you haven't heard them talk about taxes -- or dummy bills. In the case of Rep. Karl Oliver of Winona, though, tongue-tied would be an improvement.

After the state of Mississippi shut a similarly named group down for misspending, volunteers are trying to keep retreats for cancer patients alive.
South MS Camp Blue Bird hopes to get a chance to help cancer patients despite a name similar to a charity whose executive director ran afoul of the Secretary of State's Office.

My George Martin inspired diversion from hateful politics
George Martin didn't make the Beatles, he just made a sound even a 9-year-old could love.

"Some expenditures are clearly national," he wrote, citing national defense as spending that benefits the whole country.

That certainly applies to the Coast, home to Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, the Seabee and National Guard bases in Gulfport and Stennis Space Center in Hancock County.

Mississippi lawmakers have been down this road before. Do they dare raise taxes to fix roads? There is some opposition.
MEC, the Mississippi chamber of commerce, and the state chapter of Americans for Prosperity are using dueling reports to argue over the fate of the state's highway system. MEC urges the state to invest $375 million more to repair and maintain roads and bridges. AFP wants a thorough examination of the Department of Transportation first.

Editorial: we believe the timely release of information is crucial to the public understanding that the officers used lethal force as a last resort in a situation that required a split-second decision.
We believe police officers on the Mississippi Coast would be better served by superiors who release their names of officers who are involved in shootings.
