Serving Southaven is aim of ministry | News | desototimes.com

Serving Southaven is aim of ministry | News | desototimes.com: The partnership between government and faith-based communities was begun in earnest during the administration of former U.S. President George W. Bush but politics plays less of a role than the willingness to roll up one’s sleeve and get to work.

Government agencies can’t do it all. In some cases, such as mowing grass on private property, government entities are prohibited from doing just that.

But Southaven Mayor Darren Musselwhite said that doesn’t mean that he can’t pick up the phone and call a volunteer to help get the job done.

Now clean, artist from Memphis wants to start life over in Nashville - The Commercial Appeal: He had a bullet in his eye, but that’s not why Ashshahid Muhammad was freaking out.

Can Apple break new iPhone sales records again?

Can Apple break new iPhone sales records again?: Apple has sold a record-setting 180 million iPhones since September, 2014. Can they do it again with the new iPhones being announced Wednesday?

The new, larger screen iPhones helped the company sell 36% more units during the iPhone 6 cycle than for the 5S and 5C models, which added fingerprint sensors to access the phones.

Apple re-designs the iPhone every two years, and in off years, of which 2015 is one, adds new features to entice customers. This year it’s an improved camera and “Force Touch,” a series of shortcuts meant to streamline the user experience.

There's no place on Earth like New Orleans | NOLA.com

There's no place on Earth like New Orleans | NOLA.com: Before Hurricane Katrina, I would often tell native New Orleanians, "You don't know how special this place is." I kept thinking about that as countless 10th-anniversary-of-the-storm stories were told in newspapers and on television last week -- about people who had come to help and decided to stay, about New Orleanians who came home to rebuild the city they loved, and about all the others still trying to come home

Notaro revisits The Pass in Netflix documentary, Amazon comedy | Arts and Culture | The Sun Herald

Notaro revisits The Pass in Netflix documentary, Amazon comedy | Arts and Culture | The Sun Herald: PASS CHRISTIAN -- In the Netflix documentary "Tig," comedian-actress Tig Notaro brings a film crew to her hometown, Pass Christian, where she spends a scene or two with a cousin, Coast attorney Donald Rafferty and his family.

It's when the camera pans the beach and catches sugar-white sands and gorgeous water that "Tig" makes Pass Christian look inviting. So do the shots of Scenic Drive homes. And the part where Nortaro has to have an oyster po-boy from Pirate's Cove.

But "Tig" isn't Notaro's only film project that's giving Pass Christian some love. She's starring in a television pilot for Amazon called "One Mississippi," that wrapped last week in Chalmette, La. It's based in a fictionalized Pass Christian called Bay St. Lucille.

Education board nominee has federal, state policy background - Beaumont Enterprise

Education board nominee has federal, state policy background - Beaumont Enterprise: A businessman nominated to the Mississippi Board of Education on Friday has already worked on creating public school policies on the federal and state levels.
Jason Dean, 41, of Madison, was chosen for the nine-member board by Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves.
Dean will succeed Wayne Gann of Corinth, whose nine-year term is expiring. Dean will serve several months while awaiting confirmation by state senators — a common practice for people nominated to state boards while the Legislature is not in session.
"This is a great opportunity to commit some public service back and to take some of the skill sets I picked up along the way and do something meaningful," Dean said in an interview Friday.
