For some of you this post will be cryptic so please feel free to not waste much brain power trying to figure out what it is about. For the rest of you that are thinking about inquiring (we have received a few media inquiries) my response is neither I or Slabbed New Media have any comment at this time. Thank you.

Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that voters call

Those of you that would like to hang a campaign banner over on the right sidebar linked to your campaign websites would be pleased to know such is possible here at Slabbed and that includes those of you running for office in Jackson County as well. Contact me to find out how. Thank you.
By beat reporting I’m talking about regular reporting covering board meetings in the Cities and County plus crime. The opportunity has always been there folks but it has to make economic sense. Last year Slabbed was funded by regular donations from a small group of readers but the single largest donor that contributed well over 10 times the amount of all of the rest put together was the Douglas & Jennifer Handshoe Fund for Journalism in the Public Interest.
I’m interested in your thoughts folks so fire away in comments.
Its a poorly kept secret that the gang are voracious consumers of news of all kinds. I don’t keep an especially close eye on the back end as I haven’t the time but I just took a peek and decided to say hi.
One other thing I will say is I have been working behind the scenes for about 6 weeks now on this:
I gotta admit the week plus away from Slabbed was nice but now we have a log jam of material beginning with last Tuesday’s City Council meeting, which attracted Slabbed’s presence for a couple of reasons.
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend as we now head to year-end.
Just a quick note that we didn’t plan an extended hiatus, it just happened that way. It could continue for a few weeks.
On tap next Tuesday is a regular meeting of the Bay St Louis Council. Its getting close to time to adopt the budget and there have been copious amounts of public hearings. The pressure is on from interest groups and hard decisions are being made, on personnel behind closed doors.
Related the Library folks have been squawking about this post. If its true the Hancock County Library Foundation paid for both Gold Sponsorships then I may have to call an Irvin Mayfield. Who you supporting??
