HATTIESBURG, Miss. — Residents of a Mississippi city have voted to renew a borrowing plan to pay for school repairs.
The Hattiesburg American reports that nearly 94 percent of those who voted Tuesday agreed to the $22.5 million plan for the Hattiesburg Public School District. That far surpasses the 60 percent needed for a bond issue.
The plan is for improvements at Hattiesburg High School, N.R. Burger Middle School and other district schools and facilities.
In 2001, Hattiesburg voters approved $15 million in bond debt, which required a tax increase. That debt is being retired and will be replaced with the new plan. Taxes will remain the same.
Hattiesburg is at least the 18th Mississippi school district where voters have approved borrowing since 2013.Read More >
The second data exchange connection in the U.S. aims to improve care for Medicaid patients
JACKSON, Miss., Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) has worked with Hattiesburg Clinic to establish an automated system for sharing clinical data in real time, equipping clinicians with enhanced medical-history information about their Medicaid patients within seconds.
On Aug. 1, DOM successfully linked its beneficiary data-analysis system, MedeAnalytics, with Hattiesburg Clinic’s electronic health record (EHR). MedeAnalytics established DOM’s Medicaid Enterprise Master Patient Index (EMPI) back in 2014 as the core identity management system to allow easy management of a Medicaid patient’s longitudinal record...Read More >
After the success of7 Days in Hell, a mockumentary about a legendary tennis match between two fictional idiots, the Andy Samberg-led team earned a second go-round via HBO. The result?Tour de Pharmacy, a similar story that spoofs the Tour de France by focusing on competitors’ use of performance-enhancing substances in the early 1980s. Samberg returns to play Nigerian rider Marty Hass, while Orlando Bloom, Freddie Highmore, Daveed Diggs, and John Cena appear as the other made-up competitors on whom the film is focused.Tour is filled with classic slapstick comedy, and the concept is bolstered by the inclusion of several veteran actors — we won’t spoil the hilarious surprises here — who play the “modern-day” versions of the film’s protagonists. Lance Armstrong’s cameo doesn’t hurt, either.

Article 4, Section 48 protects lawmakers from arrest for certain actions before, during and after the legislative session.
JACKSON, MS (AP) –
Mississippi lawmakers want to open one of the state’s richest tax incentive programs to smaller projects, in hopes of helping the state recruit more businesses.
Senate Bill 2479 , which passed the Senate on Thursday, awaits Gov. Phil Bryant’s signature or veto. It would allow local governments to cut local and school property taxes by two-thirds on economic development projects worth $60 million or more.
Right now, the project must be worth $100 million or more to qualify.
Although any one piece of real estate or equipment can only get a break for 10 years, the bill says industries would get to use the abatement on expansions for 30 years, up from th...Read More >
LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 27, 2018 / According to a recent report from the state Department of Housing and Community Development, a large majority of California’s urban areas, such as Los Angeles, aren’t giving approval for the construction of sufficient housing.
As a result of this situation, state housing authorities are now requiring that cities ease the process for developers to get approval for new construction projects that include affordable housing units.
During the last forty years, California’s municipalities had the responsibility of setting housing goals every five to eight years as a way of making sure that enough new homes are built to meet the demands of a growing population...Read More >

Teddy Cahill: It was an exciting Opening Weekend around college baseball and you all have questions about it, so let’s get right to them
Josh (Olive Branch): What do you make of Southern Miss weekend sweep of Miss State? I know it’s early but is Southern Miss this good this year, or did Miss State just have a bad weekend?
Teddy Cahill: One of the weekend’s biggest series seems like a good place to start. I think it’s some of both. Southern Miss is good – that’s why we ranked the Golden Eagles No. 21 coming into the year – and Mississippi State clearly had a rotten weekend. Konnor Pilkington is going to pitch better. But I am slightly concerned that my two biggest questions about Mississippi State went unanswered this weekend...Read More >
