Harrison dedicates four decades to TFD

Tommy Harrison was recently honored by the Tunica Fire Department for 40 years of service.
Harrison, who joined the volunteer department on February 14, 1972, has served as an officer in all positions.
“I have never seen anyone who has more passion and love for our fire department than Tommy,” said former fire chief and longtime friend Ellis Koonce III, who joined the department a few months after Harrison. “He has done more for our department to make it better than anyone else has.”

Supes: Some spots unfilled


A short agenda still drew a large crowd as the Board of Supervisors experimented with a later time for their Feb. 15 meeting.
In January, Beat 2 Supervisor Henry Nickson Jr. proposed that board meetings be moved from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to accommodate citizens who want to attend sessions but may be working. Board president James Dunn suggested a compromise, calling for the mid month meeting and end of the month meeting to be moved to 5 p.m. The first meeting of the month was left at 9 a.m.
Nine items were listed on Feb. 15’s agenda and the board concluded their business around 5:25 p.m. Two issues were carried over. Those items were appointments to Tunica County Public Projects Inc.’s Board of Directors and Tunica Arena’s Board of Directors.

Tunica Relay For Life returns March 23

Tunica’s Relay For Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, postponed in the wake of last spring’s floods, is in the final stages of planning for the rescheduled March 23 event. The Relay has also been moved to an indoor location, Battle Arena, in hopes of avoiding delays or cancellation due to inclement weather.
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s national signature event and is as much an awareness raiser as it is a fundraiser. This family-oriented team event brings participants from all parts of the community together in a “celebration of life.” Businesses, civic clubs, churches, friends, and families take turns walking in relay fashion while they also celebrate the critical role the American Cancer Society plays in the fight against cancer.
