Slabbed has an embarrassment of riches and I do not have the time this morning to do any of it justice. In no particular order:
- Last week Slabbed was told by a source connected to Diamondhead City Government that Bay St Louis City Clerk Sissy Gonzales had interviewed for the City of Diamondhead Treasurer position with the Assistant City Manager in Diamondhead and that she would be leaving the Favre Administration. The agenda for the next Diamondhead City Council meeting indicates the Treasurer’s position would be authorized to pay up to $60,000. I would look for Gonzales to take the money and run.
- Last night, the Bay Waveland School Board by a 3-2 vote extended the contracts of Superintendent Landry and her brother John McGraw the business manager by four years. Those voting yea were Bell, Kidd and Thomas. The action was taken after a lengthy executive session and according to one of the trustees in the executive session not authorized to speak for the School Board the action was taken against the advice of School Board Attorney Ronnie Artigues. The contract extensions were not listed on the School Board meeting agenda in advance of the meeting according to Lana Noonan of the Hancock County Alliance for Good Government, who also attended the School Board meeting.
- Just weeks ago New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu was the darling of the national media with the New York Times even pumping Landrieu as a national political candidate after he removed the Confederate monuments from public display. Later today Slabbed will join the feeding frenzy on the Landrieu flash flood thanks to a reader that took an observation I made on Twitter to its natural conclusion. It is my hope the local media that has their teeth sunk into Mitch Landrieu’s hiney saves a bit of space for Slabbed to take a bite. 😉 This also illustrates why you should never get your local news from a national news outlet.
It is my hope the readers advance public knowledge of items 1 and 2 in comments, especially item 2, because the local school board really stepped out last night.

The vote by Bell, Thomas, and Kidd was not a benign vote about what color to paint a classroom or start a meeting.
This vote is going to cost the taxpayers of the Bay St. Louis- Waveland School District at least $1,368,000.00 for salaries and benefits for only 2 employees– the Brother/Sister Act in the Central Office. By the way, no figures were discussed in the motion. I am going on the current salaries of these two which are $125,000 yearly for Sista and $92,000 for Bro!!
To ignore the advice of the attorney the public pays them to keep them legal makes that attorney a mere witness to this act by Kidd, Bell, and Thomas. What’s next Chairman Bell??!!
Not only their salaries BUT
The salary of the SECOND Assistant Superintendent’s position that was created for the god child of the former school board member to oversee the brother!!!
Bell & Co. should still be held accountable for the former board member’s trip to Colorado when he was not on the board.
Sad thing is we have the 2 elected school board members, dumb & dumber, from Waveland for 3-4 more years.
We only thought we were better off with them!!!
Where’s Mrs. Sherry!
You lost me with the God Child and the family tree. But I am definitely on board with the pay back to the School District from Maurice Singleton for that trip he took to Colorado after his term on the Board expired. The entire trip as recorded in the dockets is a little over $13,000, so he must owe the District somewhere around $3,500 since 4 of them went. Unbelievable. We’ll get it done. It may take a while. Bell is a huge disappointment. It would have been a fantasy to expect too much out of Kidd. You just can’t expect more out of people than they can deliver.
I understand Joan referred to this site as “garbage.” I’ll refrain from commenting on that one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And this is why we moved from Bay/Waveland area, actually out of Hancock County.
Heard that Halfmoon Mitch has had to change his underwear several times over last few days worried that Harvey wants to visit the Big Easy with its many out of commission pumps……
Waiting for CNN (Clinton News Network) and Jimmity Cricket to criticize Trump for moving to slow in dealing with Harvey……..
Anchors away …….The Cajun Navy is on its way and I can assure everyone there will be no Pacific Fleet- like collisions….. probably be BarQin’ gators and cooking some Texas crawfish flooded out their chimney homes….he,he,he
Houston, we know you have a problem……..
But have no fear the Cajun Navy is on hand and making a big difference……..
God Bless the Cajun Navy 100 per cent….. and a warning to Kim Jun “Nutjob”of NK ……better behave yo’ self cause the Cajun Navy will come over and ‘cochon de lait’ yo’ pig shaped arse too and we won’t run into any tankers doing it… …..no sir.
