Debris comes with hefty price tag
Nearly four months have passed since the Great Flood of 2011 poured out its wrath on many communities along the Mississippi River, including the Tunica Cut-off.
While many former Cut-off residents have moved on to take up residences elsewhere, dozens more are still trying to put their lives back together, removing tons of debris from what once were their homes. Consequently, officials are projecting the total cost of cleanup from the flood to total into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Happy Birthday, Mrs. Eudene!

Tunica runner goes distance for St. Jude
When Tunica native Jim Arrington decided to drop a few pounds in 2009, he took up the sport of running to assist him in his weight loss efforts.
Since that time, Arrington has developed an appreciation for running, participating in a number of races, from 3 to 13 miles in distance. Now, he’s setting his sights on the granddaddy of running events – a full marathon – and he’s driven to finish the race, not for himself, but for the children of St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.
