Arrest made in pedestrian death
A 21 year old Tunica man has been charged in the hit and run death of a pedestrian on Aug. 18.
Just before 8 p.m. on Aug. 18, local emergency personnel and law enforcement responded to a call on Prichard Road. There, they discovered a woman in the roadway. They determined that Samantha McClain (Spates), 42, of Tunica had been struck by a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle had left the scene.
An investigation led to the arrest of James Turner. He appeared in Justice Court on Aug. 22 and was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, driving with no driver’s license, no insurance and no child restraint. Turner’s bond was set at $22,000.

County may add fees, up property tax
In advance of Thursday’s hearing on a Fiscal Year 2015 budget, county supervisors heard recommendations Monday for tax increases, new fees, and cuts in expenditures from administrator Michael Thompson.
Thompson presented a three-part plan he calls “Efficient and Sustainable Government” which he said will bring the county “back on solid footing.”
“There was a time when money was sufficient from gaming to have low property taxes, free garbage pick up, and so forth. We’re not there anymore,” Thompson said.
