Home Cooking: Taylor looks to ‘Get Moore’ out of cooking
As a teenager in high school, Essie West Taylor participated in a mock business exercise that piqued her interest in the banquet and catering business.
Now as an adult, Taylor is living her dream as the owner of Get Moore Catering, which she operates out of her Jacks Avenue home.
Taylor, who grew up in Saginaw, Michigan, said her love affair with cooking began at an early age when she prepared one of her grandmother’s favorite dessert recipes for family members.
Series of storms sweeps through community
Five separate tornado warning sirens blared in Tunica in three hours last Wednesday night, but the town – and the county, for the most part – escaped major damage in severe thunderstorms, high winds and quarter-sized hail that swept through the Mid-South starting at about 7:45 p.m.
“We had damage to a few trees downtown and lots of small limbs and leaves scattered,” Public Works Director Ellis Koonce said Thursday, “but no major effects except a utility pole down near the elementary school that knocked out power on the south end of town.”
Shelter revived at Cut-off
Nearly a dozen residents of Bordeaux Point at the Tunica Cut-off utilized a half century-old storm shelter in the midst of last week’s severe weather.
The shelter had not been used for years until last Thursday, when severe thunderstorms accompanied by tornado warnings blanketed the area, according to those familiar with the structure.
Board tackles cutoff woes, employees
An issue at the Tunica Cutoff and a new position with Tunica County opened discussion at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Oct. 15.
James Dean had an appointment with the board, saying he didn’t know where else to go.
According to Dean, he is a longtime resident of Tunica Cut-off. The camper he parked on his lot has been deemed in violation of the Nel-Win Homeowner’s Association covenants. Dean said he obtained all the necessary permits from Tunica County, but has been taken to court over the matter.
