Bottle’s contents reveal story of tragedy, love ‘s
Back in May, former Tunica resident Chris Ungren and a couple of his employees were making a routine sweep along a sandbar near Fitzgeralds Casino on the Mississippi River.
The fishing and hunting guide was using the time in his offseason to find driftwood, which he sells to taxidermists and crafts people. But in addition to driftwood, one of his employees made a startling discovery along the bar.
It was a wine bottle. And inside the bottle was something no one expected to see.
Thanks to Our Veterans
The Town of Tunica marked the 10th anniversary of the dedication of the Veterans Memorial with a November 10 program to pay tribute to veterans. All veterans in the audience were asked to stand, with each branch of the services and their local representatives recognized as their anthem was performed by Ken and Mary Sipley.
Home Cooking: Bailey makes recipes her own
When Lee Cobb Bailey finds a recipe she really likes, it’s very seldom that the finished product ends up on the table with the same exact ingredients called for in the recipe. That’s because she likes to add her own personal touches to make it uniquely different.
“I’ve never been a from-scratch cook,” admits the 33-year-old stay-at-home mother of two. “I usually find a recipe that I can easily get the ingredients from home. Then I can add something to it to make it my own.”
Reared in Tunica County, Bailey remembers watching her mother cook at a very early age. She also remembers her very first encounter in the kitchen, which she says was not a fond memory.
Obama wins second term
On Election Night 2012, President Barack Obama won both the electoral count and the popular vote over Republican challenger Mitt Romney in the November 6 General Election. Unofficial totals (at press time Wednesday) show Obama with 303 electoral votes nationwide to Romney’s 206. The popular vote was closer: Obama, 59,725,608, or 50 percent, to Romney, 57,098,650, 48 percent.
Turnout was robust across the country but not as high as in 2008, according to national media reports.
Voters also returned U.S. Senator Roger Wicker and 2nd District Congressman Bennie Thompson to their posts in Congress. The Democrat Party retained control of the Senate, 51 seats to 45 for the Republicans, while the Republican Party held on to their majority in the House, 232 to 191.
