"On Veterans Day we honor all. Who answered to a service call. Soldiers young, and soldiers old. Fought for freedom, brave and bold. Some have lived, while others died. And all of them deserve our pride. We're proud of all the soldiers who. Kept thinking of red, white and blue. They fought for us and all our rights. They fought through many days and nights. And though we may not know each name. We thank all veterans just the same." –– "Veterans Day," a poem by Cheryl Dyson. Nov 14, 2017, 16:50

Waveland officials said they hope to lease the business center on Coleman Avenue.
The Waveland business center on Coleman Avenue was built after Hurricane Katrina with hopes that it would one day be an "incubator" for small businesses in Hancock County.
Instead, the $3.5 million facility has been a drain on the city's budget.
Mayor Mike Smith said Thursday that the city hopes to be able to sell the property one day, but for now, it will have to settle for a lease to a master tenant.
"We budgeted about $70,000 this year for insurance and maintenance for that building," Smith said. "We do not collect anywhere near $70,000."
The "business incubator" was conceived as one of Waveland's recovery projects. Nov 10, 2017, 22:42
