New BNews Monthly arrives this week

The city ushers in the New Year this week with the arrival of a January issue of “BNews Monthly” that’s chockfull of news and information about city projects, upcoming special events, and the January lineup for BTV, the city’s municipal TV channel.

The 24-page advertiser-supported newsletter, which begins arriving in homes Tuesday, features stories on a host of initiatives in the Woolmarket community, a preview of the Jan. 11 dedication of the new fire station at Cedar-Popp’s, the pending construction to double the length of the West Beach Boardwalk, background on the new Mississippi Sound Coalition, and, with a nod to New Year’s fitness resolutions, a story on the city’s health-conscious recreation facilities.

The January issue also introduces a new monthly column written by Keesler Air Force Base commanders, and readers will find standard features such as four pages of infrastructure progress maps; a Nick L. Shrimp column, which traces the evolution of the annual State of the City presentation; and the Back in the Day history column, which chronicles the lighthouses of Biloxi.

The monthly Community Calendar previews this weekend’s Twelfth Night observance and the city’s MLK parade, which rolls on Jan. 20.

BNews Monthly arrives in homes, businesses, apartments and PO boxes across the city by the first of each month.
