Contest cash up for grabs
This could be your year!
You could win $500, just by picking your favorites in The Tunica Times’ 15th Annual People’s Choice Awards.
The deadline to return your completed ballot and drawing entry is Monday, June 20 by 5 p.m. Bring it by our office at 986 Magnolia Street in Tunica or mail it to Box 308.
There are only two rules: your ballot must be substantially complete (more than 50 percent) and cannot be a photocopy.
Be sure to print clearly and fill in your name and contact information on the drawing entry.
People’s Choice winners will be recognized in a special supplement in July, and the drawing winner will be announced at the same time.
Remember: you can’t win $500 if you don’t enter.
Annual event postponed
Instead of sprinting into Relay for Life with two months time, organizers are postponing the starting gun.
Anne Coggins, Tunica’s Relay for Life co-chairman, said with all that the community has faced with the flooding of the Mississippi River, it just wasn’t the time.
“We don’t want to say cancelled,” Coggins said. “We’re postponing the event until February. That should be a much better month, when other things won’t be pulling at us.”
Hello And Goodbye
County employees back to work
Two weeks after voting to shave hours for county employees, the Board of Supervisors has agreed to reinstitute a 40 hour work week. The order went into effect Monday, June 6.
Beat 1 Supervisor James Dunn made the motion to reverse the cutbacks.
“There’s been some confusion,” Dunn said. “Some employees are working four days a week, and some are working five.”
Beat 2 Supervisor Cedric Burnett asked if there had been a noticeable change yet.
