Inaugural run helps son, soldier live on
The memory of one of Tunica’s fallen sons will be honored next month during a community run that will assist other military-minded individuals pursuing their educations.
The first-ever Enduring Freedom Run is an event established by the family of slain Army PFC Brandon Dawson and the Tunica County Chamber of Commerce. The event is scheduled for Saturday, April 7, and will take place along a roadway in eastern Tunica County that was dedicated to the memory of the serviceman, who died in Afghanistan on September 24, 2010.
Navigating internet highway requires parental supervision
Parental monitoring is critical to the health and well-being of adolescents, whether the issue is Internet use or behavior in general.

Supervisors: resort area residents to gain amenity
The site preparation work for a multi purpose center in the Robinsonville area was approved by the Board of Supervisors on March 15, according to county administrator Clifton Johnson.
Tunica County will solicit bids, and Johnson anticipates work will begin in May. Architectural estimates project costs at $200,000. Johnson said costs will likely be covered by a refunding of bonds made by the county earlier in the year. That produced approximately $400,000 in savings.
