Board gives go ahead to residents
A requested variance on lot specifications met with unanimous appproval at the June 7 meeting of the mayor and Board of Aldermen.
Michael Sides and Buddy Allen said they had met with the Town Planning Commission asking to divide a lot at 1090 Hickory Lane. The Planning Commission denied the request, and appearing before aldermen is the next step, Mayor Chuck Cariker said.

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.”
