Board learns of ups, downs
Tunica’s board of aldermen had good news and bad news waiting for them when they met on Oct. 4.
The good news was that the Town of Tunica will likely receive $438,000 in community development block grant funds.
Jeff Walters of the North Delta Planning and Development District said those funds were contingent on approval by various environmental agencies. Walters said that process generally takes four months and was underway.
“The Corps (of Engineers) is the only one left to get back, and I hope they will move quickly,” Walters said.
The CDBG will help rehab the Clayton Henderson Meadows lift station, the Cottonland Village lift station and cover other sewer work, Town Clerk Celia Boren said.

Preacher’s path leads back to Commerce Boulevard
Pastor Evelyn Windum-Hubbard, lovingly called Preacher Hubbard by her congregation and the community, is an advocate for improving the lives of children, young adults, and seniors.
The first female pastor in Tunica County, she took her place behind the pulpit of Commerce Christian Church in 2000. Hubbard grew up in the house that was once next door. One of Hubbard’s earliest memories is of the 1955 tornado destroying the original church. A new building was resurrected shortly thereafter.
