News and notes: BTV finales, council replay, traffic

BTV finales: With September winding down, two of the month’s daily BTV presentations — “Social Change in a Democracy” (7 a.m. and 7 p.m.) and “The 2019 Class of the Biloxi Sports Hall of Fame” (8 a.m. and 8 p.m.) — are in their last week on BTV. Each is intensely local and offers a peek in Biloxi’s past, especially the endearing acceptance speeches at the Hall of Fame event. See them before they’re relegated to cyberspace.

Council replay: The Biloxi City Council, during its 90-minute meeting on Tuesday, heard a report from Harrison County Supervisor Beverly Martin before delving into the meeting agenda. The program airs at 9:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. on BTV and you can see it online now by clicking here.

Traffic: State contractors paving U.S. 90 in Biloxi will suspend work during Cruisin’ The Coast, but until then, they’re working each night from Sunday through Thursday. Proceed with caution, motorists. To see other traffic updates, click here.
