By Al Jones, The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Miss. Feb. 3--Deer hunting in the northern portion of the state came to a close this past week with mixed reviews. In the southern part of the state, hunting whitetail continues through Feb. 15 in the extended season -- also with mixed reviews.

By Doug Barber, The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Miss. Nov. 7--Biloxi and Gulfport renew their football rivalry for the 84th time Friday night, and more than bragging rights is on the line for the Indians. Biloxi (3-6, 3-3 in region) has a shot at taking fourth place in Region 4-5A but needs a victory at Biloxi Stadium to stay in contention. Gulfport (1-8, 1-5) is out of the playoff race but would like to maintain its supremacy in the series. Gulfport leads the series 48-31-4, and has won 20...

By Al Jones, The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Miss. Aug. 19--GULF OF MEXICO -- To some, the tarpon is nothing more than a saltwater fish cruising through passes and inlets all across the world.

Granted, people still venture to their favorite near-shore spots around harbors or reefs for redfish, speckled trout, white trout and ground mullet. But after 9 a.m., finding shade becomes the top priority. The temperatures can jump from 78 to beyond 90 in less than an hour. Drinking plenty of...

By Robin Fitzgerald, The Sun Herald, Biloxi, Miss. Feb. 2--HARRISON COUNTY -- The computer-savvy curious will have to wait to see current detainee listings on the Harrison County jail's online docket. Technical problems have cropped up in the changeover to a new records management system and it's taking longer than expected to work out the glitches. But that doesn't mean the public has no access to the information, said Sheriff George H. Payne Jr. "You can still call the jail, which is...
