No CEO named for clinics
The search for a chief executive officer for the Tunica County Healthcare Authority will continue, following a deadlocked vote at the Feb. 4 meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
Current CEO Dr. Gene Osborn introduced the healthcare authority board’s top candidate to officials at the start of the meeting. Osborn announced his retirement in December but agreed to stay on until a replacement could be named.
The candidate said she was looking forward to working for Tunica County and being a part of the community.
Supervisor Henry Nickson asked if the candidate would move to Tunica in the future.

Upcoming projects benefit town, county
Two areas of governance where the town and county intersect were the primary topics of discussion by Tunica officials Tuesday.
Tunica County is poised to deed two fire trucks to the town, Mayor Chuck Cariker told aldermen, to assist in the purchase of a replacement truck for a rescue vehicle that is 16 years old and nearing the end of its useful life.
Cariker said that the state is pushing Tunica officials to use fire rebate funds that have been accumulating for a number of years and now total over $200,000. The funds must be used solely for purchasing new fire vehicles, or the state could reclaim the money, he said.
