HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) –
Hattiesburg is hoping residents will help the city win thousands of dollars in grant money to go towards a local park improvement project.
Throughout the month of April, residents can nominate Hattiesburg in the “Meet Me at the Park” campaign hosted by the National Recreation and Park Association in collaboration with The Walt Disney Company.
At the end of April, the city with the most nominations will receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local park.
“Parks and green spaces are an essential quality of life offering for our neighborhoods. They encourage recreation, provide safe spaces for children and they foster community within our city,” said Mayor Toby Barker. “And in every neighborhood town hall that we’ve hosted, a common theme is the need for more park spaces, better equipment and facility upgrades.”
You can help by going to meetmeatthepark.org and typing in "Hattiesburg, MS." Voters can vote once a day until April 30.
"We know that we need to upgrade several aspects of our current parks, but we also think we want to do some new projects, too. So anytime there is a funding source that we can have our people get out and vote and hopefully secure, we are going to do that," said Barker.

Last week, I was driving south from Hattiesburg to Biloxi on my way to spend a couple of days on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I decided to take a different route than my usual trek south on US Highway 49. Instead, I took Interstate 59 to MS Highway 53. About a mile or two after taking the exit, I came upon Juniper Grove Road. It led me to Juniper Grove Baptist Church, which sits in front of a graveyard where my cousin Theodore Gilmore Bilbo is buried. I decided to pull over and visit his gravesite, given that I had never been and that Bilbo is my most infamous relative. As I approached the church, I saw a sign that read, “Life has many choices. Eternity has 2. (more…)
Northwest Florida Daily News
WATERCOLOR, FLORIDA — Sitting here in the early morning dark of a rental house’s front porch — while my son and his three friends sleep the guilt-free, deep sleep of 16-year-old boys who have yet to worry about things like jobs and family responsibilities during Spring Break — it occurs to me that I have a long and storied history with this little postage stamp of the world they call the “Redneck Riviera.”
Until I was 30, my understanding of the Florida Panhandle was almost always experienced through someone else’s family. My single-mom schoolteacher rarely had the disposable income for a beach trip. We had a small fish camp on the Pascagoula River near Vancleave that offered experiences for a young boy and his older brother that I wouldn’t trade for the best beach story, today. But as a kid, Destin was where “it” was happening. I had several friends who went often, and I was lucky enough to tag along. (more…)

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) –
A taste of the bayou is coming to the Hub City. Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar, a Baton Rouge-based restaurant, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday.
The Hattiesburg location is the first of its franchise to open in Mississippi.
“We are thrilled not just to bring this incredible restaurant to Hattiesburg, but to have the honor of opening the first Walk-On’s in Mississippi,” said Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar franchise co-owner Matt Gallagher. “We’ve found the perfect location with tons of space and visibility, and we will soon begin hiring a team of talented individuals to help us share our made-from-scratch Louisiana cuisine with the community.”
The 8,500-square-foot, family-friendly restaurant is located at 4400 Hardy Street in the Westwood Square Shopping Center.
The new business will bring 200 jobs to the area and will also feature a “unique outdoor beer garden and spacious parking lot,” according to a news release. Walk-On’s is set to open in early September.
“From what I’m hearing from the locals, this is the 50-yard line, the main and main, of Hattiesburg so we are very excited to be here,” said Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar Founder and CEO Brandon Landry. “As far as the jobs, we create something a little bit different. Our culture is second to none. When you look at our brand, we are a restaurant, so it’s not like we are reinventing the wheel.”
Hattiesburg adds to the list of locations, which include but are not limited to Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Shreveport, Lake Charles, Lubbock and San Antonio. New Orleans Saints quarterback, Drew Brees, and his wife are co-owners of the franchise.

The federal government will conduct a review of one of the city of Hattiesburg’s Housing and Urban Development programs after Mayor Toby Barker requested the examination.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development notified the city Feb. 5 that it is initiating a survey review of the HOME Investment Partnerships Program after a referral from HUD’s Community Planning and Development Field Office in Jackson. That referral was made based on Barker’s request.
The HOME program helps provide decent, affordable housing, especially for low-income families.
In an October letter to the HUD Jackson field office, Barker asked for a “thorough analysis of all program areas,” for two areas — the HOME program and the Community Development Block Grants program.
“We would like to work collaboratively with HUD to identify any programmatic deficiencies — to locate and correct them promptly, yet comprehensively, in order to ensure the programs are effective as they can be within what regulations allow,” he wrote.
HUD had already looked at overall management of the HOME program during a monitoring review in late August. Monitoring is conducted periodically to ensure compliance with HUD policies.
At that same time, HUD also looked at the city’s financial management of Community Development Block Grants. It later issued a report, outlining nine findings and two concerns, most of which the city’s Urban Development Director Andrew Ellard said were “simple fixes.”
The one finding that was an issue was the city’s lack of an audit for 2015 and 2016. The city received the final 2015 audit in early December and was getting started on the 2016 audit.
In addition, in 2016, two men were indicted for misusing HUD funds. Artie Shaw of Picayune pleaded guilty to his role in the scheme. Prominent Hattiesburg pastor Kenneth Fairley recently had two counts of theft of government money overturned. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals remanded a conspiracy conviction to the U.S. District Court Mississippi Southern District to determine whether Fairley’s sentence should be changed in light of the vacated convictions.
In his letter, Barker said, given the recent history of the programs and several staffing changes, he believed the analysis would be beneficial.
“We understand a comprehensive review of all programs is not a small task, but it is important to the City of Hattiesburg to ensure that we are administering these programs as they are intended,” he wrote.
The review of the HOME program will begin Tuesday and is expected to take six to eight weeks.
The city has been asked to provide organizational charts and job descriptions of HOME program employees, HUD program audits and monitoring reports, internal reviews and program audits, annual city audited financial statements and other relevant documents and financial records.
