NWCC offers test assistance for job seekers, adult students
Too few people in Tunica County are utilizing a valuable resource available to them now at no cost, and ABE/GED Transition Coordinator at Northwest Mississippi Community College Beth Little wants to get the word out.
Adult Basic Education classes are a path to higher education, a better job, and knowledge to help parents partner in their children’s schooling.
“Our ABE program offers so much more than just a GED,” Little told Tunica Rotary members last week, “And it’s at no cost to the public.”
Fleet for roads, other co. departments tops 50
A partial list of vehicles owned and operated by Tunica County shows that the total for the Road Department is 40; for Maintenance, five; Receiving, 1; Solid Waste, two; the Tunica County Recreation Commission, two; and the Tunica Arena, one, for a total fleet of 51.
This total does not include vehicles operated by the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department, Tunica County administration; or any vehicles that may have been added to the inventory since January 1.
As of December 2014, the fleet included: six Ford F150 pick ups; four Ford F250 pick ups; four Chevrolet 2500 trucks; one Chevrolet 1500; and one Chevrolet 3500 utility truck.
R’ville library ready for users
When the new Robinsonville community center opened November 1, one of the jewels in its crown still needed a bit of polishing. But at last, the final component of the multi-purpose facility is in place.
The Robinsonville branch of First Regional Library cut the ribbon last Thursday, January 15, to officially declare that the space is “fully operational and functioning,” according to Tunica/Robinsonville libraries branch manager Quatasha Jackson-Sow.
