Joeygate: Never a dull moment here in the Bay (UPDATED)

When a man loves a woman….

Bay councilman Joey Boudin thought his wife was being ‘held against her will,’ ~ Wes Muller

Mr. Shiyou evidently changed his mind and decided it was best that he speak with Wes Muller as the rumor mill has gone into overdrive locally:

Steven Shiyou, victim of alleged assault, says he was discussing home lease with councilman’s wife ~ Wes Muller

Flip this property back and forth: D’Iberville does another real estate deal (get ready to grab yer ankles)

But first some lovely dance music:

D’Iberville agrees to sell Ocean Expo land in whale of a deal ~ Mary Perez

And Mary invokes Rube Goldberg which in turn got my radar up – well that and the fact the buyer of the old Ocean Expo land is the company that sold it to the City to begin with: Continue reading “Flip this property back and forth: D’Iberville does another real estate deal (get ready to grab yer ankles)”

Comment Bump: Of railroad tracks, overpasses and taxpayer loot in Pascagoula

Not long after Slabbed began covering the SRHS crash and burn I was contacted by a knowledgeable observer from out of this area that was kind enough to give me a refresher on Pascagoula/Jackson County politics dating back a generation or so.  The story involved SInging River Hospital and those pesky yet economically wonderful railroad tracks that run through the City of Pascagoula and a politically connected landowner. I filed that bit of wisdom away because such background, even though it is ancient history, often comes in handy when deciphering the more recent, topical events.

All of this is a long winded way of saying it was only natural when commenter Ben Dover appeared on the scene here on Slabbed Monday night, commenting on an old post that is not linkable from the Recent Comments widget on the right sidebar they would resonate with me. As such, Ben’s comments, posted to an old untitled music post, were strictly on the inside for those following Slabbed on twitter…..until now that is.  I personally can’t wait for Ben to finish the timeline:

Horny Problems in Pascagoula. Kicking over some rocks to see what’s under.

Just the other day I was out for a walk. I heard the train horn and thought to myself something like “Hope Morris didn’t hear that!” Then I thought to myself why would he have such a problem with those trains? Because even before the SRHS financial fiascos were revealed, Morris seemed to have the proverbial hard on to do something about those horns. I know they are loud and no doubt many guests at the Hilton Garden Inn in Pascagoula appreciate such old fashioned sounds less than I do (see various online reviews/complaints for the details.) Then too, building the Jackson County Chamber building about 50 feet from the crossing and then complaining about the noise was a stroke of something.

Then I thought to self something like: Maybe there is more to this horny problem? Continue reading “Comment Bump: Of railroad tracks, overpasses and taxpayer loot in Pascagoula”
