Government Up Close

For those of you who don't get a chance to make it to the Gulfport City Council meetings, you can now watch them on television. While most of you are at work, Walter Thomas is out taping the meetings for SAND-TV, Seeking A New Direction TV, which airs every Wednesday and Saturday at 7 on cable.

The group is interested in bettering government by keeping residents informed on the issues. Thomas says some key issues that affect residents are being decided upon and he says they need to know. If you have Cableone, you can see the council meetings on channel 63, again on Wednesday's and Saturday's at 7 PM.
