New ambulance contract sought
Last Saturday night, a vehicle traveling on Highway 61 south of Tunica overturned and was then struck by a second vehicle, killing one person and seriously injuring another. Injuries were reported in a second two-car accident Monday night near Rosa Fort High School. In both accidents, Pafford Medical staffers stabilized the injured on the scene, and their ambulances transported them. It’s all in a day’s work for Pafford.
But very recent cost cutting measures by Tunica County have Pafford’s continued presence in question. Supervisors voted Tuesday night to request new proposals from ambulance service providers, in an attempt “to operate at less cost,” according to Board of Supervisors president James Dunn.

Arts spotlighted at upcoming Soiree
It’s been said that there’s no place better to throw a party than the Mississippi Delta. With that in mind, the Tunica Arts Council invites all to their first Southern Soiree at the Tunica Museum on Nov. 15.
“The Arts Council, over the past few years, has put on the local art show and has had some success,” TAC treasurer Byron Earnheart said. “ This year, though, we wanted to take it up a notch and incorporate art and music. Going from there, we decided that this could be an annual fundraising initiative to help fund the many wonderful projects we’ve talked about doing or been approached to do by members of the community.
