Help for struggling MS homeowners

 

It's WLOX News Director Brad Kessie. I wasn't aware of this statistic until I looked it up at foreclosure.com. A quarter of all foreclosures in Mississippi are homes in Harrison, Hancock, Jackson and Stone Counties.

If you're one of those homeowners who's suddenly facing foreclosure, help may be on the way. Attorney General Jim Hood just announced that his office has created the Mississippi Foreclosure Prevention Consortium. That group will assist homeowners who are struggling as a result of the foreclosure crisis. We hear from the attorney general on WLOX News at 6:00.

We're following reports about more problems for the area's sea turtles.  A dead sea turtle washed up in Hancock County today. A dozen other injured turtles got medical attention this weekend.  On WLOX News at 6:00, we're heading to the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies to learn why so many turtles seem to be suffering.

It was quite a sight today in Biloxi as hundreds of Minnesota students came to town to spruce up the city. Their mission in Biloxi included a gardening project at the visitors' center. Once they're done here, the Minnesota group heads to New Orleans for a week-long conference with Lutheran students from around the country. You'll meet some of those volunteers on WLOX News at 6:00.

And then, I invite you to flip over to our CBS channel and watch WLOX News at 6:30. That's the one place you'll learn about plans to reconfigure the traffic lights on Government Street in Ocean Springs.

We just went past 23,000 likes on the WLOX Facebook page.  If you haven't liked us yet, click here and give us a thumbs up.

Have a great night.
