Admin. working to fix past audit issues
Tunica County Administrator Michael Thompson is taking information from past audit reports, the county’s financial accounting system, financial statements, and other records to create what he said will be a better government for the county.
“I’m about two things: transparency and accountability. It’s county government. It’s public,” Thompson said.
Material weaknesses have plagued Tunica County financial statements for at least the past several years, according to its 2009-2012 audit reports completed by Hernando-based accountancy firm Williams, Pitts, and Beard, PLLC. Reports are publicly available online at the Office of State Auditor Stacey Pickering.

Hawkins headed to the pros
Lots of little boys dream of one day becoming the professional athlete they read about or see on t.v. For Donald Hawkins of Tunica, it’s no longer a dream. On Saturday, May 10, Hawkins committed to the Philadelphia Eagles and will wear number 78 next season.
In an interview on Tuesday, May 13, Hawkins said it had been a busy three days, but the team and the city had been very welcoming. He had previously met with team representatives in Austin, where he attended the University of Texas. He’d also participated in the Eagles’ Pro Day workout and said it just seemed like a natural fit.
