'The City' is coming to Marks —�Amtrak service will stop in Delta town as early as spring 2016 - Mississippi Business Journal

'The City' is coming to Marks —�Amtrak service will stop in Delta town as early as spring 2016 - Mississippi Business Journal: The announcement that Amtrak will add a flag stop at Marks in the heart of the Delta is already generating quite a buzz in the Delta and beyond. Marks Mayor Joe Shegog recently did an interview with CNN about the stop in the middle of the Delta for people to hop off to visit Blues Trail sites and other attractions in the area.
According to Quitman County officials, in addition to enhancing tourism visits, the stop would provide an essential transportation service for about 200,000 residents living in nine counties in the north Delta.
“We have been working on this for more than 20 years,” Shegog said. “Many years ago, maybe 50 or 60 years ago, we had a passenger train stop here. I think what it will do is attract more tourists to the Delta. We will have the only Amtrak train stop between Memphis and Greenwood. We have some big plans to do what we can with what we have.”

Rising Sea Levels May Limit New Orleans Adaptation Efforts - Scientific American

Rising Sea Levels May Limit New Orleans Adaptation Efforts - Scientific American: NEW ORLEANS—Ten years after Hurricane Katrina and a failed federal levee system killed more than a thousand and devastated the Gulf Coast, this city is littered with constant reminders of the risks locals face each storm season.

Seventeen “evacuspots” around the city, marked by metal sculptures of 14-foot waving stick figures, cue memories of the government evacuation plan that fell apart in 2005. Katrina floodwaters trapped more than 100,000 residents left behind, many of them in harrowing conditions in “shelters of last resort” at the Superdome and the city’s convention center.

PATRICK'S PICKS: Can Biloxi, Gulfport protect home field? | High School Sports | The Sun Herald

PATRICK'S PICKS: Can Biloxi, Gulfport protect home field? | High School Sports | The Sun Herald: It's week three and Patrick's Picks is starting to pick up a little steam.

Following a 13-3 performance a week ago, I'm sitting at 33-9 headed into week four.

Harrison Central (0-3) has been the hardest team to pick of late. Just when you think they're going to turn that corner, they just can't quite do it. The Red Rebels have a chance this week to bounce back at home against Pearl River Central, but I'm a believer in the Blue Devils (2-0).

Jackson to host Food Truck Friday

Jackson to host Food Truck Friday: ood Truck Friday starts this week.

It’s exactly what the name suggests.

A handful of Jackson’s food trucks will set up at Smith Park starting at 11 a.m. There will be a DJ. Seating is available but limited, Sheila Byrd, spokeswoman for Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber, said. “It’s an effort to support Jackson’s growing food truck industry and motivate citizens to visit and eat in Downtown Jackson,” Byrd said in a written statement.

The weekly series runs through Oct. 9.

The event is a collaboration among Yarber’s office, the Jackson Convention and Visitors Bureau, Downtown Jackson Partners and the Mississippi Museum of Art.

But the concept developed when Lauren Davis and a handful of other food truck owners brought it to the city a few months ago.

Why New Orleans is better than ever | Fox News

Why New Orleans is better than ever | Fox News: When you take a look at the numbers, it seems as though, in some ways at least, 10 years after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans is better now than ever before.

For example, according to a report from The Associated Press (AP), the city’s tourism statistics are almost as high as they were 10 years ago, and in some cases they’re even stronger.

According to the report, 3.7 million people visited New Orleans in 2006. In 2014, that number more than doubled: the city accommodated 9.5 million visitors last year.

"It's a fantastic time to go there," Diana Schwam, author of the travel guidebook Frommer's EasyGuide to New Orleans, told AP. ''The post-Katrina energy that has emerged is insane. It's just really fun and exciting."
