Bay St. Louis 4th Ward Begins Monthly Newsletter

Bay St. Louis Newsletter Aims to Inform and Entertain

Contact: Ellis Anderson(228) 493.2107  ellisanderson@bellsouth.net

A new Bay St. Louis Fourth Ward newsletter launches in July, with the goal of“ making good citizenship easy – and fun!” In keeping with that motto, even thenewsletter’ s name is light-hearted: “ The Fourth Ward Cleaver” makes whimsicalreference to the 1950’ s sitcom, “ Leave It To Beaver.”

The on-line newspaper will be published on a monthly basis at www.bslfourthward.com and although it’ s geared toFourth Ward residents andproperty owners, contributorsbelieve that others along thecoast will find the periodical ofinterest. Each issue will includegeneral neighborhood news,with columns on events,gardening, and Fourth Wardarchitecture. A photo gallerywill share pictures of residents’anniversaries, family reunionsand other festive occasions.
of Fourth Ward neighbors.

Allen Reed, a contributor who lives on Ballentine Street, noted that while there’ s no feeto receive an e-mail notice when a new issue is posted on-line, subscribers are askedto “ adopt” one neighbor without a computer, then print and deliver a copy to them each month.

“ It’ s a fun community project and we’ re all volunteers,” said Reed. “ And since theInternet makes it extremely inexpensive to produce, we don’ t have to seek out donationsor advertisers.”
Reed pointed out that the site also has a map of the ward and a list of useful links to cityservices and organizations. “ It should be a great informational resource for residents ofthe ward,” he said. “ But we want it to be entertaining as well.”

If the Cleaver’ s popularity grows, Reed hopes that other wards in the city will eventuallystart up their own version of the on-line newsletter. “ We think we have an easy systemin place and would be delighted to share our format. After all, the more communitiesinteract, the healthier they are.”
As the website proclaims, “ you don’ t have to live in the Fourth Ward to be part ofour neighborhood!” Those wishing to subscribe to the Fourth Ward Cleaver can sendtheir names, street address and e-mail address to: mailinglist@bslfourthward.com.Simple directions for submitting news items, photos and story ideas may be found at thenewsletter website at www.bslfourthward.com.

2011 Waveland Mississippi Oyster Fest Cancelled per Waveland Community Coalition

Per the Waveland Community Coalition FB page, the 2nd annual Oyster Fest has been cancelled due to city budget constraints. This seems short notice for a festival set for Saturday April 2nd.

The group posted the following message:

Regretfully, the WCC has to announce the cancellation of this year's OysterFest. The WCC's Board of Directors was informed, this morning by the city, that they could not afford to provide essential city services for the festival. Our sincerest "thanks" go out to all the sponsors, contributors, vendors and volunteers who gave of their time, talent and treasure.  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Waveland-Community-Coalition/104533907743

We are disappointed to hear about this cancellation because it is such a wonderful and energetic festival.

Is a Boat Ramp In Waveland’s Future?

Fullscreen capture 2142011 53037 PM-1

A boat ramp and marina would sure be a nice asset for the Waveland beach area. I think this would be a good catalyst to help promote tourism and revitalize Coleman Avenue.  This will also most likely be a lower cost option than a marina and this option will surely have lower maintenance cost than earlier proposals. Time will tell if and when Waveland will get a new boat launch near the Fishing Pier. I for one hope to be launching a boat sooner than later.
