Sheriff weighs in on gun control

In mid January, President Barack Obama issued over 20 executive orders related to gun control on the federal level. On Thursday, Jan. 24, Sheriff K.C. Hamp, the chief law enforcement officer for Tunica County, discussed the new protocol and its implications on citizens in this community.
“I support the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment giving citizens the right to bear arms,” Hamp said. “I echo the ban of law enforcement around the nation of keeping high power assault weapons out of the hands of gangs, terrorists and the mentally challenged.”
Hamp said an assault weapon, also commonly known as a machine gun, belongs in the hands of law enforcement officers and the military. Weapons that have the capacity to fire many rounds and “hurt a lot of people” should not fall into the hands of just anyone, he said.

Eatery fills niche in local restaurant scene

For just over a month, a new Tunica restaurant has been serving up pizza pies and healthy food options to local patrons looking for some variety in their dining options.
Southbound Pizza, which opened its doors at the start of the New Year, is a partnership between Moon Lake resident John Mohead and Buddy Allen, Michael Johnson and Patrick Johnson of Tunica.
“We opened up on January 4 – the first weekend in January,” said Mohead, managing partner of Southbound Pizza. “We saw pizza as a void that needed to be filled in the community. But in addition to pizza, one of our goals was to offer a combination of healthy food option. We felt that was also a void that needed to be filled in Tunica.”
Mohead said the idea to start a pizza business in Tunica was spawned on a sandbar in Moon Lake last summer. He said he pitched the idea to the other investors, and the concept evolved into what is now Southbound Pizza.
