Daley reinstated to school post, reassigned
Rev. McKinley Daley, dismissed from his employment with the Tunica County School District in early November for alleged sexual harassment, has been reinstated by Superintendent Steve Chandler, according to School Board president Tomeka Henderson-Cotton.
“The Superintendent reinstated him, and it didn’t require Board action,” Henderson-Cotton said.
Daley has been assigned to Dundee Elementary School by Chandler, she added, and was back on the job last week.
Town officials back off on apartment demo
At their meeting on Dec. 16, the Board of Aldermen learned that a downtown building damaged by a fire in 2011 has been cleaned out and is being secured by the property owner. The board took no formal action, opting to allow that work to continue. They will revisit the issue in early January 2015.
After Alderman Marie Nickson recused herself from the discussion, Mayor Chuck Cariker reported that the town held a public hearing on the matter. In the days following the hearing, the property began to be cleaned up. Town attorney Chuck Graves said a clause in the statute states that if the owner begins clean-up, the town has no authority to take action.
