Developers eyeing local properties
With at least two possible developers looking at Tunica County property, interest in wind farms is accelerating.
In August, public notices in this newspaper declared the intent of Torch Renewable Energy and Property Management Southeast to place meteorological towers in Southeast Tunica County to gauge wind conditions over the course of a year. Now, a conditional use permit is also being sought for property in East Tunica County belonging to James Daniel.
Eric Bergstrom, Project Development Manager for Wind Capital Group, brought local Rotary members up to date on wind farm technology in late October.

The Tunica County Vocational-Technical Center has a new name to underline its continued role in the education of local students.
On October 27, the center was dedicated to its first director and will now be known as the David Williams Jr. Career & Technical Center.
The facility was built on the Rosa Fort campus and opened in 1988, with Williams at the helm. He designed the blueprint for the center’s construction and hired the first staff members, a group that came to be known as the “Dream Team.”
