    Queen Belle 2019

    Although originally from Bassfield, Rhonda Irizarry is no stranger to Mardi Gras, nor is she a stranger to the fun-loving group known as the Krewe of Saint Fabian, whose main goal is raising money for the St. Fabian Church Building Fund. Her active participation in so many ministries, her constant display of love and loyalty, and her contagious, jovial attitude, made Rhonda the unanimous choice for Queen Belle 2019.

  • Children's Center Classic 10K, 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run, Feb. 23

    When Hannah Southerland went on stage to receive her Mississippi Occupational Diploma from Lawrence County High School in 2013, her entire class gave her a standing ovation. Surely, this kind of moment would have been exciting and memorable for any family. But for Hannah’s family, it also signified how far she had come and how many odds she had defied. When Hannah was diagnosed with athetoid cerebral palsy at a very young age, her family was left feeling uncertain about what the future would hold – a feeling to which any parent of a child with special needs can relate.

  • Hattiesburg's 7th Annual Mardi Gras Parade Saturday Feb. 23

    In its seventh year, the parade is set for 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, and will include a number of floats, walking groups and plenty of beads and other trinkets. Area residents are ready for a parade after last year’s event was cancelled due to the forecast for inclement weather.

    “A highlight of this year’s parade will be in the addition of the Honey Island Clydesdale horses,” said Melissa Saucier, parade director. 

    This year’s parade will lead off with the University of Southern Mississippi cheerleaders riding a Hattiesburg fire truck.
