Festival combines fun, food, Delta finery
Tunica Main Street will host the 9th Annual Delta Day Festival in Historic Downtown Tunica on Saturday, October 29, 2011 from 9 am-5pm. This will be a day of fun, food, and family to be shared and enjoyed by all.
With many exciting activities and engaging games for the children, Delta Day is a great place for all ages. Infants to nine year olds are invited to arrive in their Halloween finest and participate in the Children’s Costume contest beginning at 10am. Afterwards, they can change into their best racing attire for the Children’s Tractor Pull contest at 2 pm, where they race old tractors for the winning trophy and the all important bragging rights. Judging will also take place for the scarecrows the creative grades at Tunica Academy are constructing.
SO breaks cold case
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a man reportedly tied to a nine year old crime in Tunica County.
On March 7, 2002, a rape, armed robbery and burglary were reported at 1108 Sears Street in Tunica. Investigators have been working the case since then.
Dean works to unite community
“Death doesn’t discriminate and neither should love,” Neketta Dean says with a look of hope on her face.
Dean, who serves as the community relations specialist for the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department, was recently referenced in an article in the Memphis based Tri-State Defender newspaper. Dean is credited with statements that she believes are negative towards the community. Dean says those are not her words and that most of the information reported about her personally was inaccurate.
We remember, we will never forget
The Town of Tunica marked the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America with an expanded Patriot Day program.
Retired FBI chaplain Dr. Jimmy Latimer was the keynote speaker; the program also featured “The National Anthem” and “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” by the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department chorus.
