Event offers forum for candidates
Day in and day out, law enforcement agencies across the nation fight the war on crime. On Aug. 1, the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department will bring to light their efforts and rally community support with a National Night Out Against Crime event at the G.W. Henderson Rec Center.
Neketta Dean of the Tunica County S.O. stresses that the event is open to everyone community wide. She reports that the night will include many fun and informative activities, as well as refreshments. It will take place from 5 to 9 p.m., and citizens are invited to drop in for all or part of the event.
Special friendship blossoms after loss of loved one
Friendship is something no one can predict. Some friendships are formed on the jungle gym in elementary school trying to see who can get to the top fastest, some are made in the classroom on the first day of college when no one knows what to expect, and some are made at the funeral home in your hardest hour.
That’s right, no one else expected it either. But for Katie Stroud, Scott Peoples, 35, of Memorial Funeral Home, was a blessing in disguise when she lost her mother in December of 2010.
Goodbye, Officer Warren
Fight leads to arrest of four locals
An argument between four females escalated and brought law enforcement to a local business Monday morning.
Shortly before 11 a.m., Tunica Police Department and the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call at the Texaco Station on Main Street. Police chief Richard Veazey said the incident involved four women.
Witnesses said the women exchanged words outside the convenience store and then began fighting. A large knife was used in the altercation, but no serious injuries resulted. All received medical attention at the scene for minor injuries.
