School district is losing a dedicated employee
Once again, Carolyn Steele faces one of the biggest days of her career. She has anticipated plenty of moments like the one to come. This time, though, she will be closing a chapter in her career instead of starting a new one.
Steele recently announced her plan to retire from Tunica County School District (TCSD) effective June 30. She spent the last 33 years working in various positions including high school secretary, secretary to the superintendent, and, most recently, payroll manager.
Once in a ‘Strawberry’ Moon...
Whether you call it a strawberry moon or a rose moon or even a honey moon, last Friday’s lunar show was spectacular and rare enough to draw notice. Clear skies on June 13 gave Tunicans a chance to appreciate the beauty of God’s creation.
Library seeks funding from municipality for FY15
A budget request from First Regional Library was one of the only items on the Board of Aldermen’s agenda on June 17. Members of the organization requested $37,000 for the next fiscal year to operate Robert C. Irwin Library in the town of Tunica.
Head Librarian Ruth Harris introduced First Regional Library Director Ed Hughes, who has just recently taken the job.
“I am happy to be here,” Hughes told aldermen and Mayor Chuck Cariker. “You have a great series of libraries.”
After Hughes’s remarks, Harris announced that her position in Tunica is open, as she will soon transfer to the FRL branch in Walls.
“I do look forward to a shorter commute, but I will definitely miss this library and town,” Harris said. “The R.C. Irwin Library was built to serve the town and county and it has been able to meet that challenge.”
Insurance switch causing confusion
When Tunica County employees tried to get prescriptions filled last week and called a telephone number they were provided by county agent of record Nick Floyd, they were told they weren’t in the new carrier’s system. That was scary for many employees and their families.
“My son has asthma and needs attention,” Commander Cedric Davis of the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department said, “and medications and doctors aren’t available. We’re being told that we’re not covered.”
