Museum recording memories
Every Tuesday morning, a group of local Tunica County residents drop by the Tunica Museum in an effort to rewrite history… literally.
This gathering, known simply as Tuesday Morning, is comprised of about a half dozen citizens whose interest is in preserving the histories from their generation for those to come.
Blast from the Past
The Boomers and their mix of hits like “Lollipop” drew a record crowd to Tunica Main Street’s first Alive After Five concert for 2012.
Local ready to rumble for good cause
There’s a championship belt at stake, and “The Cremator” intends to keep it at home in Tunica.
Local funeral director Scott Peeples will put on a different face come 7 p.m. Saturday, May 26, when he dons a somewhat sinister persona and takes to the wrestling ring in the feature event of the Stars and Stripes Battle at the Arena that he is promoting in association with Maximum Championship Wrestling.
The family-oriented evening is the first in what Peeples hopes is an ongoing series of wrestling events in Tunica.
“The theme is a tribute to America’s military and veterans,” Peeples says.
