Southern State’s energy board meeting
Governor Bryant is on the Coast this week hosting the Southern States Energy Board annual meeting at the Beau Rivage. This year’s theme is ‘energy dominance.’ Officials from 16 states in the south are meeting through tomorrow to discuss environmental challenges in the region and how they can build a smarter and more sustainable energy sector. With new businesses popping up every day on the Coast, Mississippi Development Authority Director Glenn McCullough tells News 25 energy is a key part of that development. “Safety is number one and people have to work safe, protect themselves, protect the public and also protect the environment. Energy is required for economic development and that’s one of the reasons Governor Bryant is hosting as chairman the Southern States Energy Board here on the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast.” McCullough also tells News 25 with 75 percent of the BP funds coming to the Coast, the funds are expected to bring quite a boost to the state’s economy.

Movie theater opening this November at Edgewater Mall
Something you’ll see at the Edgewater Mall is ongoing construction of the new movie theater. The opening date is still set to be in November before Thanksgiving. The name of the theater is Premier Cinemas and it will have eight screens all equipped with luxury reclining seats. Another addition, if you like getting that popcorn and drink, but don’t want to pay for a refill, you won’t have to. Edgewater Mall General Manager Terry Powell said, “Some of the really neat things they’ll have here are free refills on popcorn and drinks. There will be a little station off to the side where you can go in and refill your drinks and popcorn on your own. To have a theater back in here in Biloxi and on Edgewater Mall property again is something exciting.” This will be the first movie theater in this area since Hurricane Katrina destroyed the existing one in 2005.

Basketball: Southeastern Louisiana vs. Jackson State
Lions, tigers, and hoops? Oh my! An exhibition basketball game took place tonight at the Bert Jenkins Gym inside Gulfport High School, but it wasn’t the Admirals tipping off. Both the Jackson State Tigers and the Southeastern Louisiana Lions agreed to play for a good cause. The proceeds from tonight’s event went to hurricane relief efforts across the Gulf Coast. Southeastern held off the Tigers by a final score of 57-51.
Division I basketball coming to Gulfport
When division I basketball makes it way to the Gulf Coast, the coliseum is often the go-to neutral site. Tomorrow, Jackson State and Southeastern Louisiana will tip things off from Gulfport High School. Bert Jenkins Gymnasium will be the venue for this exhibition match, organized and put on by former St. Stanislaus coach, now head man of the Lions, Jay Ladner. All proceeds from the charitable cause will go towards hurricane relief and flood victims and will be donated by catholic organizations across the Gulf Coast. With an event like this, it’s a win-win for all parties involved including Gulfport Head Boys Coach Owen Miller. "We were thrilled that they would want us to host this. They reached out to us and wanted us to host it. We're fortunate we've got the college three down already, we've also got a shot clock so logistically there were no issues. So I think it's a little of both, obviously I think our tradition plays into some of that. We've got nine state championships, more than anybody in our state. And our program is known throughout the state and has a great reputation, so I think that helps and then just the city of Gulfport. It's a great place and we do a lot of good things and we're proud of that here in Gulfport." Combined there are a seven players from the state of Mississippi on the two rosters. The Lions and Tigers will square off at 7 p.m. tomorrow from the Bert. Tickets are $5.

NASA administrator visits Stennis Space Center
NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine has been touring NASA sites across the United States. Today, he made a stop at Stennis Space Center in Hancock County. He discussed NASA’s goals into the next few decades and what he thinks about President Trump’s announcement of space force. It’s been seven years since the space shuttle program was cancelled, leaving Russian rockets as the only form of transportation to the International Space Station, but the new Space Launch System, also known as SLS, space travel will be returning to American soil. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said, “We’re spending a lot of money. So, why do we do this? The reason we do it is because we want to improve human lives on Earth.” Bridenstine has been at the controls of NASA since April after being appointed by President Trump. “NASA has blazed a trail that has improved the human condition and we want to continue that type of investment.” Those improvements include testing rocket engines right here in South Mississippi which will help put a man back on the moon by the 2020s and eventually Mars by the 2030s. “What we’re focused on right now is developing the capabilities of getting us to the moon, prove technology on and around the moon and then ultimately take those technologies and make them replicable at Mars.” While we’ve put a man on the moon before, this time around it’s all about one word: sustainability. “In other words, this time we’re going to stay,” said Bridenstine. As NASA continues along its mission of exploration, discovery, and science, what about President Trump’s recent announcement of the sixth military branch: space force? “We’re now at a point to where if we were to lose space, it would be an existential threat to the United States of America and what that means is it has to be defended. While NASA is not going to be involved in national security or defense, where we will be involved is making sure our assets are safe and our astronauts are safe.”
