Hambrick resident seeks help
Hambrick Subdivision resident Toni Price was clearly fed up when she complained to county supervisors on March 15 about what she described as a “mess” in her neighborhood.
Price said she had reported the problem of junk cars on her street and in a neighbor’s yard for three or four years, but that nothing had been done about the situation.
“It’s unfair that I have to live under this mess,” Price said.
O Happy Day!
National symposium rolls dice on Tunica
Topping 37 cities from across the nation, Tunica is now in the running to host an up and coming conference on social media this fall.
In early March, Tunica was included as one of 37 possible sites to host the 2011 Symposium on the Use of Social Media in the Tourism Industry. Dubbed SoMeT by its creators, the event is in its second year. Last year, it brought in 100 industry professionals to Loudoun, VA, near Washington, D.C.
The push to bring the symposium to Tunica was led by the Convention and Visitors Bureau, after one of its own attended the inaugural event last year.
Rivergate Festival returns with mix of music, favorites
From Southern soul to country sounds, music is the focus of 2011’s Rivergate Festival in downtown Tunica on April 15-16.
Ocean Street kicks off the festival Friday night with a unique blend of rock and soul in a live show that has livened up beach towns and colleges coast to coast. Their single “Till I’m Gone” has been featured on a sampler CD alongside Paul McCartney and Marc Cohen and new artists Josh Ritter and KT Tunstall. The band was hand selected by Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell to play a fundraiser last fall at his Georgia ranch.
