Wow, it's been a while since I've heard that name
My father lives just outside Pascagoula, in Helena.......about 10 miles, I'd guess. I lived there for almost 2 years as a teen............it's HOT........HUMID.......but a very nice area (once ya get past the paper mill and pogie plant smells) :chuckle
It has grown a lot since I lived there. The last time I visited was a couple years after a hurricane had been through, and tore up the city pretty bad. It was completely rebuilt. New Orleans is only about 70 miles away (to my recollection) and Mobile, AL is about 45 miles the other direction. One of the biggest employers in the city is (or was) Ingall's Shipyard. They repair and build ships, and dock international ships for loading & unloading. As far as hospitals, I don't know an awful lot .
The people are very friendly, and, in general, pretty laid back. Casinos have pretty much taken over the entire coastal area (Ocean Springs, Gulfport, Biloxi), so, if ya like to gamble, a good place..........not so sure though.........Lol, could get expensive.
