November newsletter due out this week

Biloxi’s eight casinos took in $883.5 million in the just-concluded fiscal year, the highest gross gaming revenue figure in a decade.

That news, which caught the attention of columnist Nick L. Shrimp, is one of the dozen or so features in the November issue of the citywide newsletter, BNews Monthly, which is due this week in homes and businesses across this city.

The 24-page issue also includes status maps on infrastructure in East Biloxi; colorful, two-page stories on Edgewater Mall and the Edgewater Gulf Hotel; a status report on the District on Howard Avenue, as well as photos of Howard Avenue through the years; and a look inside the new Mardi Gras Museum, scheduled to open downtown Biloxi in mid-November.

The newsletter also has stories and renderings about new boardwalks in East Biloxi and on Back Bay, which were recently announced by Gov. Phil Bryant; new hires in the Biloxi Fire Department; a month-long community calendar that includes information on a host of events taking place in November; and the November listings for BTV, the city’s municipal TV channel.

BNews, which is delivered to every mailbox and PO box in Biloxi by the first of each month, has a host of civic-minded advertisers in the November issue. They include Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort, Edgewater Mall, Biloxi Public Schools, The Blake at Biloxi, Palace Casino Resort, The District on Howard Avenue, Mississippi Power, and Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel.
