Education

Parents wanted the hot Hancock bus issue resolved last year. They’re still waiting.

The Hancock County School System has a bus, No. 709, that just won’t cool down in back but, unlike other drivers, the driver on this bus refuses to let students put down their windows because, their parents say, the air is stifling. Superintendent Alan Dedeaux said he’s working on solutions, but parents say they had the same problem last year.

Oren J. Lewis won custody of his 1-year-old daughter 57 days before he killed her. He was recently convicted in Hancock County Circuit Court of capital murder. Her mother, Rita Miller, still grieves today but finds comfort in signs that the toddler watches over the family, including the angels placed anonymously in Biloxi’s Lighthouse Park, where she takes her two youngest children to play.
