This Vote Was For The Birds

A decision by Jackson County supervisors will help protect a heron roost at the Ocean Springs Harbor. Supervisors yesterday approved the Ocean Springs Harbor Commission's recommendation not to build 12 boat slips proposed for the area where the birds rest.

More than 70 people, including environmentalists, showed up at the commission's meeting January 16th to voice their concerns about disturbing the resting site for egrets and night herons.
