JACKSON, Miss.–Finding a PS4 in Mississippi is obviously just as difficult as finding one anywhere. Odds are, if you went out Thanksgiving night or early Friday, you did not come away with the game system you went looking for.
MERIDIAN, Miss.–If you’ve ever been to Meridian and visited the Sports Connection, The Snack Shack or The New Place, then you’ve been where the feds were looking into illegal gambling. Now eight people have had the cuffs slapped on them after federal indictments.
JACKSON, Miss.–If you’re headed to grandma’s, mamaw’s, nana’s or Auntie Grizelda’s for Thanksgiving, get ready to dish out the dough. Mississippi’s gas prices have been floating around the $3.13 mark all week and that’s what the state-wide average was Thanksgiving morning, according to gasbuddy.com.

WALNUT GROVE, Miss.–If you had spent the last 11 weeks on setting up big decorations for your town and somebody came along and wrecked it for you, you’d probably be pretty mad. That happened in Walnut Grove this weekend and now the group that put up the decorations has raised $500 for a reward to find out who did it.
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.–Many Mississippians enjoy shopping at Hobby Lobby for home decor, but what the company is able to do in court may shape the future of the country. The Oklahoma City-based, family-owned business is challenging the Affordable Care Act provision that forces them to provide coverage for the “morning after pill” and other contraceptive drugs that they say is against their religion.
STARKVILLE, Miss.–Police Chief David Lindley had been with the force for 38 years in Starkville, but he decided to retire this week after being put on administrative leave last week by the Board of Alderman. They are still not saying why.
MOSS POINT, Miss.–Filling the shoes of Billy Broomfield in the Mississippi House is now up to 21-year-old Jeramy Anderson, who was overwhelmingly elected as the new representative for District 110 Tuesday, beating former Moss Point mayor Aneice Liddell. Anderson will be the youngest person ever to serve in the House.
JACKSON, Miss.–The rain is all gone, but some counties are still feeling the effects with flood warnings in place. Now it’s the daytime temps for Wednesday and Thursday and very cold overnight temps to prepare for.
JACKSON, Miss.–Add another name to the big list of candidates for U.S. Senate: State Auditor Stacey Pickering, but that’s only if current U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran (R) decides to retire. Pickering said Tuesday on the Paul Gallo Radio Show on SuperTalk Mississippi that if Cochran is out, then he will be tossing his hat in.
JACKSON, Miss.–Mississippi may not be getting the snow that states to the west have, but more than five inches of rain in some parts of the state have caused travel problems and colder weather is on the way for Thanksgiving Day.
