Tunica mourns Ashe
Harvey Kimzey Ashe’s banking and political careers ran concurrently during decades of change for both, and he willingly lent his leadership to these arenas and many more during the 54 years he made Tunica his home.
A former mayor from 1989 through 1993 and an alderman for 24 years prior to his election as mayor, Ashe, who died at home Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at the age of 85, was active in almost every aspect of community life.

New well on town's horizon
“All’s well that ends well” may soon become the new motto for the Town of Tunica.
During the meeting of the mayor and board of aldermen on Sept. 7, officials discussed options for the water system, including a new well. Mayor Chuck Cariker, along with engineer Ed Davis, both said they felt that building a well would be the best long term solution.
Cariker said he had recently received a contract to tie into the Tunica County Utility District’s water system. According to Cariker, he and TCUD officials had decided that the town could tie in at Perry Road. When the contract came in, it stated that the town would tie in at Prichard Road instead.
Delta faces ruined dreams, rekindled hope
PART 1 of 2
Along Highways 3 and 49 in the north Mississippi Delta, things are bleak. Towns are crumbling and looted of any pleasant veneer. Empty buildings, once home to industry, rot on a landscape known for its fertile soil. People and stray dogs wander aimlessly through sagging shells of towns. The dismal stretches of roadway look bombed out and broken, like they’ve been through war.
Once roads to riches, 3 and 49 have become roads of broken dreams.
