Was not looking for water, or money, was looking for being
made whole again. Fresh off the Press, the Mississippi
Press that is: One block off from Trent Lotts local office,
and three buildings down from the main Library still trying
to get back to its design since mold was first forced into
the publics view.
Source: Brad Crocker can be reached at 228-934-1431, or
Footnote: The Mississippi Press has moved its printing
office to Mobile and its old building has been vacated due to
mold. Local High School is in the early stages of being torn
down due to mold despite it is on the historic register.
Postal Officials Say Pas branch safe despite mold
U.S. Postal Service officials are reviewing their options on
how to handle a mold infestation at the main U.S.. Postal
Service brach in Pascagoula at 911 Jackson Ave. Mold was
recently detected in the east wall of the post office which
was opened in the 1970s. Test conducted recently indicated
that the post office did not pose threat to employees, said
Larry Dingman, manager of field communications for the U.S.
Postal Service's Memphis office
"We want our employees to have the best, safest work
environment possible," Dingman siad Monday. We want
everybody to know the building is safe." There has been no
decision regarding whether the USPS will stay in the Jackson
Avenue building or move to another location. "We just don't
know yet," Dingman said. "We're doing the best we can to
look at all the options." "We want to do the important
thing." Dingman added that services will not be interrupted
as a result of the mold. Alaina Garrision, 47, handles all
her postal business at the Jacksoin Ave. Office. "It's so
centrally located, i couldn't see going anywhere else, unless
it's close to this one,"she said. The Pascagoula Public
Library, located several buildings down from the post office,
is in the middle of its own bout with mold problems. Last
fall, a leaky skylight and roof and problems with the heating
and air conditining units caused infestations in the
conference rooms, which were gutted down to the steel beams.
The rooms remain blocked off. Earlier this year, the City
Council awarded a $43,315 contract to Continental Roofing to
Repair the skylight and roof. "We wanted to repair the
outside first,"City Manager Kay Johnson siad. The city wil
advertise for bids to handle repairing the conference center
walls in the near future, Johnson said.
Note: Continental Roofing also provided free roofing patches
to the Pascaoula High School in order to delay the
infestation. After about six years the old school remains of
the sale block with no buyers. It could be given to the City
by the School board.
Jack now is your chance to educate all these misinformed
individuals. You can start with Mr. Larry Dingman, Senator
Lott, City Manager Kay Johnson, or reporter Brad Crocker.
Evidently your message has not been completely spread, or
these guys, and gals need a little more ammunition that your
keeping under wraps.
