Games called; safety seminar set; Special Olympics Monday

Little League games scheduled for this evening at the Biloxi Sports Complex have been postponed until a date to be determined as a result of this afternoon’s inclement weather.

The complex, which opened its Little League fields Saturday with an opening day of 25 games, has hosted 10 games each weeknight since opening, and that daily 10-game schedule is scheduled to continue through June 1

“The Little League fields were playable on Saturday, even after almost 10 inches of rain fell  Thursday evening and Friday morning,” said Recreation Superintendent Sherry Bell. “We’re waiting to see about Thursday night’s games. Right now, the staff feels that the fields may be playable if we don’t get any more rain Wednesday night.”

Police to host seniors safety seminar

The Biloxi Police Department will conduct a free personal safety seminar for seniors on Friday, April 8 beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the Lopez-Quave Public Safety Center, on Porter Avenue, two blocks north of the Biloxi Lighthouse.

Although the session is being coordinated by Ward 3 Councilmember Arlene Canaan, it is open to all residents. Refreshments will be served during the seminar, which will be conducted in the municipal courtroom, off the lobby of the public safety center.

Police officers will advise residents of inexpensive home-safety measures they can take, and how to identify money scams, which generally target the elderly.
