Still no official state markings for Jamie Miller’s new fishing boat, purchased with BP settlement money. Hot off the twitter folks:

With the tip of the hat to our tipster I’d like to share with everyone the boat DMR Executive Director Jamie Miller authorized for use in the snapper sampling program per Slabbed New Media’s source, who is been granted anonymity as they are not authorized to publicly discuss such matters. The next step was to issue the call for pictures:
Attention Mississippi DMR employees and stakeholders: Slabbed needs a picture and unless you’re under a rock you know what we want. TY.

It is the boat true, die-hard fishermen dream of. The boat that has but one reason to exist: to help you catch the kind of fish that win tournaments – plain and simple.
And with a bigger tip of the hat to a photographer who answered the call and was able to sneak a pic: Continue reading “Slabbed Introduces the newest addition to the DMR Fleet: Ain’t she a beaut!!”
Of course the first thing I had to do was figure out the identity of the long fabled in comments “Cake Eater” and that is mission accomplished. My next step was to enlist some help which I did. I then set off checking cases in both Chancery and Circuit Court in Harrison County on Mississippi Electronic Courts as well as the Federal Court system on PACER. I spent nearly two hours looking and came up empty. Yesterday I heard from the last of those I reached out to for help and everyone came up empty.
If there is a lawsuit related to the Mississippi DMR and/or the Cake Eater we’ve not been able to find it. If any of you folks know more about this and wish to leak it out I’m happy to take leaks. Visit the contact page for more information. A case name or even help narrowing down the venue would be helpful. Thank you.
Compliments of the Marine Patrol and Mississippi’s taxpayers circa 2014.
$30,000 worth according to lore and the chirpin’ birdie. First up a couple of paintings hanging on the wall up on 6.
Next up a closer look:
I think I’ll need to break this up into installments folks since Slabbed does not do Slide shows:
First I’d like to introduce everyone to Jeff Grant, who was recognized as Marine Fisheries Employee of the Quarter less than a year ago.
Jeff was even recommended for a promotion last October. Continue reading “DMR Miscellany: Public Notice plus meet the Marine Fisheries Employee of the Quarter”
My experience is a semi-monthly payroll works best for salaried employees due to the vagaries of overtime calculations and such for hourly employees. Holding back two weeks of time is at least one week more than what I’d term normal in the local private sector (and the limits of what is legal in many states) but don’t take it from me:
Holding back two weeks of time tells me it is either understaffed in accounting, the people in accounting are lazy and/or incompetent or that Jamie Miller and his executive team did not think this memo that he sent out completely through before he sent it. It was leaked here to Slabbed as DMR employees are too afraid to ask these very basic questions of their leadership. Make no mistake however, the new DMR payroll frequencies are within the limits of what few Mississippi laws there are in this area so you employees would be wise not to complain or you’ll get in trouble with the man.
