My family and I have been going to the Fort since it opened and have had some good times but has anyone noticed lately how NASTY the restrooms and pavilion is all the time for some reason.
There was a small lady working there but we haven't saw her lately. she would always be working in the restrooms and all. We are wondering what happened to her? She would be there soaked in sweat and trying to lift 70 to 80 pound bags out of the cans. My Son even helped her on a couple of occasions. She was a very hard worker and now that she's not there, this place is a mess.
The City needs to get on top of this because this can turn into a Health issue.

Hey BOA, get this PARK'S Director to clean up the facilities she's in charge of!

Now we see that the FORT will not be rented anymore because it's not a money maker for the City and it is becoming more unsanitary each day.
Wonder why it took so long to figure this out! It's a public park, RIGHT?
Also we found out that the PARK"S Director had the little lady fired form the City so now we know why the Fort and the other Park Facilities are starting to go down hill.
We will not go back to these facilities till they get in shape.
The Fort is the Mayor's pet pea so she needs to figure out what the cleaning problem is.
Someone needs to understand that there are a bunch of children that attend these facilities, so if these stay like this then maybe someone needs to look at where our CHILDREN are staying during the day at ALICE ST.

If I was dumb enough to have children I wouldn't let them go to these places either, though probably for differing reasons than you cite.
But I completely agree, the city has become a fiasco since the current administration & BOA has come in & tried to turn the city into an artsy fartsy copy of Madison Ms like what Connie said a long time ago on public tv.
And I agree - end the nepotism - end the process by where felons get these cushy desk jobs & then get all their family/significant others/etc in at the other desk jobs in the dept.
Hire ppl based on talent/experience -- not because they "no somebody"....

These jobs were setup to where there was a degree required to be in these positions but some how Straight got the current Administration to change the job requirements for the Director position and the position she created for her LOVER.
If you are in a positions to deal with children then you should have the credentials to back it up and neither one of them has the credentials to be in a these positions.
It's a shame that this Administration will lower these standards when it involves the children of the community.
I know for a FACT that none of my grandchildren will be enrolled in this program nor will anyone I know enroll their children back into it as long as there's a CONVICTED FELON running the Park's Dept.
Wonder what would happen if the newspapers got wind of this? It would most likely hurt the Daycare business at Alice ST.

Who is the felon and what was the nature of their offense?
#7 Oct 27, 2013
You've made the public accusation that a felon is running the Parks Department. Now it is time to put up or shut up. Either name this alleged felon and their offense or make a public apology to parents whose children are entrusted to the Alice Street Recreation Center.

They say that this Parks and Rec Director that wants this new building so bad was charged with a felony and did some time some years back. Not sure its true but the resource is very reliable so why is she working with this city if this is the case. They claim it was did at a bank in Biloxi. Let' dig it up and see. Her name is Geri Straight.
from another thread...i googled and found nothing

She just might be there because she does a good job. It is very obvious to all that OS-ME has a personal dispute or is a disgruntled ex-employee of the city. If she did something in her past and paid her debts to society than leave her alone.

Sorry to say that you are wrong on both accounts. I'm just a concerned citizen that pays taxes also and my info came from someone that was working at this BANK with her years ago when this happened.
This is the second time you are quick to come to her defense so you must have some type of insight to this incident.
I just want to post this on this blog and enlighten the people of O.S. as to some things that could be a possibility and this info came from a very reliable source.
This will be my last post on this matter because if this is all true then it will take its on course in the near future and I feel it will.
BY THE WAY, GOOGLE DO NOT TELL EVERYTHING!

"This will be my last post on this matter because if this is all true then it will take its on course in the near future and I feel it will"
And well it should be. You've tainted this person without a shred of evidence other than a 'reliable source' and 'they said'. You have commented here and on the DMR and Walker blogs in much the same manner with prognostications about what is going to occur in the legal arena with unsupported statements and speculation that supposedly comes from an insiders view of the grand jury investigation and prosecutors deliberations. I don't know if you have a personal interest or a hound in this chase but you should not be making public statements besmirching anyone without rock solid and irrefutable evidence to back it up.
