Local History: Mr. Houston and Mr. Lowe
This week continues a summer long series of history stories by the late Ashley Harris that were first published in 1994 and 1995. This story appeared in the July 7, 1994 issue of The Tunica Times.
On March 30, 1908 two men had an argument on the streets of Tunica. Their friends separated them. It should have ended there.
The two were prominent men. One, J.T. Lowe, was a lawyer. The other was P.M. Houston, Secretary and Treasurer of the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee Board.
Both men went home and armed themselves.
They met again a few minutes later. After a brief conversation Mr. Lowe shot Mr. Houston in the temple, killing him almost instantly.
The two men had been, up to that very day, “warm personal friends.”
County board resolves issues in July 5 session
This week’s Board of Supervisors meeting resolved several lingering issues but left others hanging.
Supervisors came out of executive session at 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5, with Board attorney John Perry announcing two votes taken in closed session:
• authorization of a letter to Frank Barton asking him to move a boat that is docked at the Tunica RiverPark;
• termination of a contract with Bill Wenzel for building inspections.
Earlier, the Board had discussed its resolution, approved last month, to contract with Code Solutions for “flood plain management, planning services and construction permitting, including code review and code enforcement,” as outlined by county administrator Adrian McKay.
