New jobs headed to Tunica County

A second German company will join Schulz XP in what is shaping up as a true industrial zone in North Tunica County.

Crankshaft manufacturer Feuer Powertrain Gmbh & Co KC will build a 156,600 square foot plant near Robinsonville, investing $140 million and creating 300 jobs over five years.

Feuer projects first production in early 2015, with construction starting early next year. The plant, located just across Kirby Road from Schulz, will be the company’s first in the U.S.

The announcement came in a groundbreaking event Tuesday, Sept. 24, that was hastily moved from the plant site to the Tunica RiverPark, after an early downpour created a muddy morass in the former cotton field.

James Meredith has been called a civil rights hero, a visionary, a loner and a maverick, but what he really wants to be known as is a man on a mission from God.

Throughout his adult life, Meredith, now 80, has challenged his home state of Mississippi, first winning a lawsuit to gain admission to the University of Mississippi in the early 1960s, the first black student in the school’s history. Then he launched a 1966 march to break down fear in the black community and promote voter registration.

Service club sees beauty, poverty of island nation

A group of local teenagers shared stories, observations and images from a trip promoting “service above self” at the Tunica Rotary Club on Thursday, Sept. 19.

The Tunica Academy Interact Club traveled to the Dominican Republic in the summer of 2013 to provide water filters for citizens and help with the construction of a local hospital.

Rotary Club liaison Wes Ryals, who also traveled with the group, previously reported that they found “a desperate living situation” in the country.

Club sponsor Abbey Turner echoed Ryals’ remarks, saying that local water could not be consumed.

“We played cards at night and joked that the loser would have to brush their teeth with the water,” Turner said.
