One arrested as part of Gulfport homicide investigation

It will be another beautiful fall day in South Mississippi. Highs will struggle to get out of the 70s. It will also stay breezy with north winds at about 10 to 20 mph. A Fire Weather Warning continues due to lack of recent rainfall, very low humidity, and breezy conditions. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is not recommended. We are expecting a gradual increase in temperatures and humidity over the next seven days. But the morning will still be cool to pleasant with sunny and warm afternoons.

Louise Crawford (1880-1965) was the founder of the Hancock County Library System. Louise, a native of Vernon, Indiana, moved to Bay St. Louis in 1912 and lived with her father and brother on Citizen Street. She worked for the L & N Railroad and later the American Red Cross. During the Depression Louise was inspired by the Works Projects Administration (WPA) to establish a library system in sixteen towns in the county. She was known around the county as “Miss Weesie” and was perhaps the most important community booster during that time frame.
