It's WLOX News Director Brad Kessie. The USS Mississippi has made it to the shores of Jackson County. The submarine actually docked at the Port of Pascagoula an hour early. But don't worry, our cameras got there just in the nick of time. And we captured the exciting moments when the Mississippi arrived for its commissioning. You'll see the magnificent underwater vessel on WLOX News at 6:00.
Heading out this weekend? Don't drink and drive. And be sure you wear your seatbelts. Law enforcement agencies across South Mississippi will be looking for drunk drivers. Terrance Friday is at a highway patrol checkpoint tonight. We'll catch up with him on WLOX News at 6:00, and on our CBS newscast, WLOX News at 6:30.
Also at 6:30, we head to the beach. The opening day of the 2012 summer tourism season has plenty of vendors hoping this will be the year they strike it rich. Michelle Lady tells us there's a feeling coast tourism may be getting back to pre-Katrina levels.
And on WLOX News at 10:00, we Party at the Point. Biloxi hosts a three day music festival at Point Cadet. We'll have a news team there to listen to some of the toe-tapping entertainment.
Have a happy and safe holiday weekend.
