WAVELAND, MS (AP) - Waveland Mayor Mike Smith continues to recover from a kidney transplant.

Smith underwent the surgery at Ochsners Hospital in New Orleans two weeks ago, where his sister donated a kidney.

Smith says he feels great and is anxious to return to work. He hopes to be back at city hall in two weeks.

Mayor Pro Temp Shane Lafontaine is over-seeing day to day duties and city board meetings while Mayor Smith is recovering.
