Gulfport officials ask, 'Where is the fairness?' - WLOX.com - The News for South Mississippi

Gulfport officials ask, 'Where is the fairness?'

It's WLOX News Director Brad Kessie.  Harbor Town got denied again by the Mississippi Gaming Commission.  And this time, the rejection caused an immediate reaction from two Gulfport councilmen. An angry Ricky Dombrowski called me asking why the Gulfport casino project got shot down. 

"I don't see any consistency in the process," Dombrowski just said on WLOX News at 5:00.

Later, I got an email from councilman Rusty Walker. 

"Where is the equity in the gaming commission decision? Where is the fairness?" Walker asked. 

Elizabeth Vowell will explore those questions on WLOX News at 10:00.

Two dozen Pass Christian High School students participated in a senior prank.  Now, they're charged with crimes.  According to Pass Christian's assistant police chief, the students got into the school one night this week and "just trashed it out." They tossed Coke cans everywhere, shredded papers, and used chalk to mark up walls.  Michelle Lady investigates on WLOX News at 6:00.

And we've just learned that problems with a contractor have forced the Biloxi Housing Authority to press pause on a $5.7 million affordable housing project.  The only place you'll see this story is on WLOX News at 6:30, our unique newscast on our CBS channel.

Have a great night.
