WCBI News at Ten - Saturday, November 9th, 2019

Good evening and thank you for joining us.

I'm rylie livingston it is a national health crisis.

And one that touches most families in mississippi.

Opiods are narcotics - a presciption pain killer used to treat everything from severe back pain to cancer.

Most people only need to look at close as their medicine cabinet to find one of mississippi's biggest health challenges.

Our tyler hull has the story.

"and then all of a sudden the pills are not enough and you're gonna want heroin and then now all of sudden you don't know how much to give yourself and you wake up dead of an overdose."

Everyone knows an addict.

Someone who relies on pain killers - and can't stop.

Some people get their drugs on the street.

Others from the medicine cabinet.

Think about knowing 100 people who go to the doctor.

Drug abuse dot gov reports that just two years ago, providers in mississippi wrote nearly 93 of those people opiod prescriptions.

In september the mississippi board of pharmacy changed their regulations.

"they basically recommended no more than a three day supply and and then you but if you could justify a seven day supply, you could do that" the rules are in place to prevent people with new injuries from getting hooked on pain meds.

There are a few exceptions to the new rules as well... "there are particular folks that have a chronic pain diagnosis, maybe they have cancer related pain, they can get an exception for that."

So.

It's complicated.

"i know that's one of the methods that they're trying to do is essentially decrease the amount of opioids people can get which sounds like a really good idea in practice , but it s such a complex issue."

Director of alcohol and drug services for community counseling services kenan wald does not believe that access all of the issue.

" you know, if addiction was only tied to access, then i mean, frankly, the drug war would have worked, right."

Still, the state department of health hopes their prescription monitoring program will identify possible abusers - and the new rules from the pharmacy board will keep pain medication from wide circulation.

An investigation is underway after an accident involving a tractor.

Lowndes county coroner greg merchant says josh stewart, 29, of caledonia, died from injuries in the crash.

We'll be into the mid 4s by the evening and to the mid 30s by early sunday morning.

Skies will remain clear with calm winds.

Sunday: another gorgeous day with plenty of blue sky and a columbus organization is honoring purple heart veterans.

The reh memorial foundation hosted its inaugural "purple heart gala" saturday at the marriott in columbus.

The event featured a special ceremony to recognize fifteen former and retired military members who received the purple heart.

The award is given to military men and women wounded or killed while serving.

It is the oldest military award given to service members.

The reh foundation provides resources and services to veterans in the golden triangle area.

The cold couldn't stop people from coming out this morning to support our veterans... the columbus veterans parade kicked off at 10 this morning.

The parade line up included veterans, the columbus high school band, boy scouts, and other organizations.

The parade started at the municipal building and ended at the court house also celebrating our veterans starkville held its second annual veterans day parade musical... the parade started at ten this morning, and after the parade the musical began.

They program included a flag folding, presentation of colors and service flag by the starkville high j-r-o-t-c... multiple people joined in to sing and show their support.... how can you not support your veterans?

It's incredibly important that they understand how much we appreciate what they have done and it also matters to me cause i want us to show the kids coming up that is an opportunity that they might want to look into to be a veteran is an honorable honorable thing organizers hope the parade will continue to grow.

Coffee and conversation... that's how members of the mississippi legislative black caucus and some area residents spent their saturday morning.

Our deandria turner was there and has more on how this meeting was more than just a meeting for a cup of joe.

Helen's kitchen sits just off the corner of historic 7th avenue north in the friendly city.

It's a place several meet for comfort food and good conversation.

"it's always been the place to find out information and what's going on in town.

You have a city hall, but you also have helen's kitchen."

The place with home-cooked meals and smiles to greet you has been a safe space in the african american community for over 30 years.

"i don't know of any place that you can go and come and have lunch, breakfast or even dinner and you might be sitting next to an elected official or someone who lays bricks it's just the common ground for good conversation and the pulse of the community.

Saturday, helen's kitchen opened its doors for good conversation with the first- ever coffee with members of the ms legislative black caucus.

Representative kabir karriem who's part of the group, says that coffee with the caucus was a way to hear from their community about what they think should be changed .

"black caucus leadership was trying to use it as a model to tell our other members this is something you should do to stay in tune with your constituents."

The discussion over coffee included topics like education and incarceration.

Judge bennie jones of west point says this meeting is a step in the direction "you all are grabbling with things we've been grabbling with for 50 years so the struggle continues and i'm just happy that we're in good hands."

Karriem says because of people like jones coffee with the caucus is possible, and the work still continues.

"we would not be in the positions that we're in if it wasn't for the shoulders of the great ones who come before us.

It's not a passing of the baton because you still have those individuals who fought for civil rights and freedom and equality 50 years ago, but the struggle still continues.

The ms legislative black caucus plans to do more events like this before the next legislative session.

With the holidays just around the corner many people are out looking for those perfect gifts.

We'll have more on how one town is looking to help shoppers out coming up next.

Wcbi's allie martin has more.

As leslie madden russell shows a customer some jewelry at the delta belle boutique nats she is also making sure displays and merchandise are ready for this weekend's holiday open house.

"people will have specials, they will have refreshments, it's something you do not want to miss."

Downtown merchants in new albany will be open sunday afternoon as part of the annual celebration.

Russell moved into the last available downtown space in august offering unique items. "french kandee jewelry, antique medallions, coins from france recast and made into jewelry in the united states."

Standup bridge the open house is sponsored by new albany main street association.

It kicks off the christmas shopping season and also gives merchants a chance to showcase personal service that shoppers can't find online.

"it's about relationships, it's about that special, unique thing you do that the online merchants cannot do, like hemming a pair of pants on site, knowing family history and knowing what was purchased and a personal relationship to shop local."

And for merchants like russell, the open house is also an opportunity to attract new customers and show others the special qualities of new albany.

"we have customers from everywhere, i love being home, i love the spirit new albany has, and there really is no place like it."

The downtown open house runs from 1 until 5 on sunday.
