Downtown Tunica Renaissance
Tunica’s downtown district is undergoing a rebirth of sorts, as three new businesses prepare to open within days and two other properties get a facelift.
Tunica Main Street director Lynn Ryals said this week that William and Melissa Pierce have opened CPR Computer Repairs in the former Computek location.
“Alex Obad will have the old Earnheart’s service station for full service gas and a small convenience store,” Ryals said. “Heather McGregor has started up Crooked Letter Art Gallery for photography, graphics, and art sales.”
Woman struck, killed
A woman walking along Prichard Road east of Tunica was struck and killed after dark Tuesday evening.
Few details were available near press time on Wednesday.
Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over
One out of three traffic deaths in America is alcohol-related: that’s why law enforcement across the state, in partnership with the governor, are calling on the public to help put an end to drunk driving.
This year’s Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over high-visibility crackdown began Friday, August 15, and runs through the Labor Day holiday on Monday, September 1.
Across the United States, more than 10,000 people are killed in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes every year, one every 51 minutes. Drunk driving is reckless and preventable.
Local insurance agent takes huge risks on waves
While most people evacuate their homes or hunker down at the news of an impending hurricane, Bruce Williams readies his surfboard for adventure. The local Farm Bureau insurance agent said he chases hurricanes for opportunities to ride some humongous waves.
Williams started surfing when he was 12 years old, he said. He said it all started with friends in his hometown, Destin, FL, which is known for its tropical storms and hurricanes.
