WCBI NEWS AT TEN - June 11, 2019

The mississippi legislative black caucus is getting a jump start on next year's legislative session.

Thanks for joing us tonight... i'm quentin smith... on the agenda today... better understanding of the current state of the division of medicaid.

Courtney ann jackson has the latest from today's hearing.

The legislative black caucus wants a better grasp on how the 6.1 billion dollars are being spent at the division of medicaid---around a billion of those are state dollars.

"to see how that translate to services for our people around the state.

That was very important to me."

Legislators took advantage of the chance to quiz the division of medicaid.

"how many contracts did y'al have under medicaid?"

"we are focused as y'all hav heard me talk about on providing the best coverage we can for the population we have and moving that needle.

Making people healthier."

One issue---lawmakers are being told medicaid recipients are having trouble getting non-emergency transport to appointments.

"they don't have a right t choose when people's appointments are.

Their job is to provide a service."

Those allow low income elderly or disabled individuals the ability to receive care outside of a nursing facility.

But lawmakers say there's still a waiting list.

"we feel that there are som additional services that could be in a waiver situation for people that are trying to remain out of assisted living."

Members know there will be new leadership next session and some form of medicaid expansion could be on the table after years of pushing for it.

"we know from research th importance of it, from a health care standpoint, from an economic standpoint.

So, i'm hoping and praying that this is a jumpstart for it."

"we don't have an officia agency position on that."

The information gathered will help shape the caucus for next year's session.

Rain chances during the weekend look to be in the 10-20% range when we come back we meet some women who are going the distance to help others this summer... welcome back... many area churches sponsor overseas mission trips this time of year..

It's a way to volunteer and provide essentials to people struggling to survive.

Our stephanie poole talks with two women logging some serious miles to help others..

Nats holly and mia bridges travel over 2-thousand miles to guatemala for a mission trip every year.

They see communities in need of food, water, and medical supplies.

" there's peopl in other places that aren't as fortunate us.

And we were called to share the things that we have."

" to know tha theres kids that i can help and that it will impact their life forever."

The bridges are part of a volunteer group from north winona baptist church that serve one week out of the year.

Holly bridges says she received the calling for her family to participate on the mission trip in 2012.

" our first tri we knew that's where the lord wanted us to serve right now, yes we can serve here ,we can serve anywhere around the world but we just felt like the lord had called our family to serve in guatemala at this time."

Through the years of providing essentials needs, holly knew her family need to do more.

And in 2015, the bridges' joined ahava ministries-- a weekly feeding group in guatemala.

" it takes plac three days a week and they feed approximately 100 to 140 kids and mothers a day.

And during that time they also present a bible story, they present the gospel to them and have some kind of craft activity."

"i always try t play games with the kids and like have fun with them.

Just let them forget their street life and just come here and to the ministry and just play and just be a child for a little bit."

At the end of each trip, the group provides a stove so families are able to cook.

It is over two thousand miles from winona to guatemala, but distance is no match for this mother and daughter to serve.

"it's exciting t see the friends that we made over time.

Even though there's a communication of difficulty love is a universal language."

The bridges' are heading back to guatemala on june 30th.

Stinger the diamond dawgs are headed back to omaha for a second run at a college world series...more on the dawgs is coming up next in sports spx open mississippi state is headed back to omaha for the college world series for its second consecutive year the bulldogs with a tumultous year dealing with coaching issues of course ending in an undesirable way but the diamond dawgs, with a brand new leader, have managed to do it again state has unfinished business to deal with upon its arrival in omaha, amongst a whole slew of new challenges no longer being at home, and áalmostá brand new opponents to face but regardless, the bulldogs saying they are ready to take on the challenge "obviously we're going to win we wanted to win, we played really well.

But it was definitely a different experience because of the rollercoaster we had.

This year it's likey hey we're going to omaha, we're not just going to omaha.

We're going to win.

We're going there, we have a job to do, we have to finish."

"i think we're focus, and i thin we realize we have work to do.

I think just being there last year made us realize how badly we wanted that national championship, and how much more we need to do.

We fell short last year and now i think it's more of a focus aspect of knowing we have a lot more to do if we're going to win it."

"i think the ballpark piec doesn't change too much, it's just the atmosphere.

It may not be the atmosphere on the field, it may be everything that you're asked to do, and your family is there, and the chaos of omaha.

But going to omaha and playing for a while like they did will be a big benefit."

The stage in omaha for the college world series has officially been set the team's that will be in attendance first and foremost, missisppi state, texas tech, michigan, arkansas, florida state, auburn, vanderbilt, louisville saturday featuring texas tech vs michigan at 1, arkansas vs florida state at 6:30 vanderbilt and louisville set to face off at 1 pm sunday, and mississippi state gets the primetime slot sunday, facing auburn at 6:30 pm.

The game will be broadcasted on espn 2 in case you haven't noticed four of the eight teams headed to omaha for the college world series are members of the southeastern conference three of those team's being sec west teams ole miss mike bianco talked about the difficulties of these sec teams after his teams super regional loss to arkansas "there's not a conference i the country that prepares you more for the postseason than the sec.

It's ten weeks, thirty games, it weathers you, it thickens your skin it humbles you."

"i don't think it's a surprise o anybody that there's at least four teams in there and three from the west.

Again, it's one of those things for ten straight weeks it's just a war."

The rebels season did not end on the note they would've liked it to with the loss in fayetteville and much like the super regional in arkansas, ole miss experienced many ups and downs all season long ole miss head coach mike bianco saying although an unfortunate ending this year's team will be rembered for its post season turnaround "some weekends we were goo as any team in the country and there were some weekends we'd like to forget.

We had a lot of that.

As a coach i think you look back and still scratch your head, 'was it the pressure, was it the expectation going into the season.

This team will always be rembered for being here.

Unfortunaetly it ended one game short from omaha.

I' ve seen teams, not just at ole miss but others where you don't play well at the end and you wonder what happened to them they were so good.

That would've been a shame for these guys cause there's too many talented players on that field."

Some good news for ole miss as their season comes to a close ole miss junior grae kessinger earns the 2019 brooks wallace award...which is given to the best collegiate shortstop in the country kessinger led the team with a 330 batting avg...scoring 67 runs last week, kessinger was drafted in the second round of the mlb draft to the houston astros
