News and notes: Sculpting, causeway lighting, Bolton case

Here are notes and notes about a trio of municipal issues:

More artwork: Marlin Miller, the Fort Walton Beach wood sculptor who’s volunteering his time and talent to create sculptures from dead tree trunks on Beach Boulevard in Biloxi, will be back in town this weekend to create more works of art.

Causeway lighting: Coast Electric plans to have street lighting restored on the Popp’s Ferry Causeway – the isthmus near the Popp’s Ferry Bridge – in mid-January. The work will include replacing six storm-damaged utility poles and re-stringing power lines before re-installing lights.

Bolton case: Harrison County Judge Robin Midcalf this morning gave beachfront property owner Hayes Bolton another 30 days to erect an approved fence on his property and declared that a 20-foot buffer zone on the west side of the property should be free of materials. Although the judge admitted that items stored on the property seem to have been re-arranged over the past 30 days, issues involving the display and sale of vehicles and repair of beach chairs and jet skis on the site remain unresolved.
