Board takes up healthcare, drainage


The county board’s mid-month meeting last week convened at 5 p.m. and recessed at 5:30, with supervisors moving through an uncluttered agenda with little action taken.
Within minutes of calling the meeting to order, District 1 supervisor and Board president James Dunn said he would like to see the Board move forward on hiring a CEO for the Healthcare Authority. District 2’s Cedric Burnett made the motion to hire the healthcare commissioners’ recommended candidate, but the motion was voted down 3-2, with Phillis Williams, Henry Nickson, and McKinley Daley voting no.

“We just tried to have some fun with the Southland ads that have been running (on television) in recent weeks,” explained Tunica CVB President Webster Franklin. “We started a social media campaign that turned into a word of mouth campaign. It’s a cooperative effort between the CVB and all nine of Tunica’s casinos. It’s been very successful.”
