Local business blooms under new owner’s hand
For Scott Rhines, Tunica Florist and MarketPlace is more than just a business. It’s the symbol of his finding his way back home.
Rhines left Tunica in 2009, after owners of Main Street Market Antiques on Edwards Avenue made a hard decision to dissolve the business. Rhines took a job as town clerk for Como, Miss. He lived and worked there until June of 2012, when a new path began to unfold before him.
“My endings caught up with me, and I decided I really wanted to be from somewhere,” Rhines said. “My house (in Como) sold on June 19 and I bought the shop in August. In six weeks’ time, I sold a house, put my stuff in storage, got an apartment, made a deal on a business, leased a house, got my stuff out of storage and started a flower shop. I’ve never looked back on it. I needed a life change and a job change.”
No CEO named for clinics
The search for a chief executive officer for the Tunica County Healthcare Authority will continue, following a deadlocked vote at the Feb. 4 meeting of the Board of Supervisors.
Current CEO Dr. Gene Osborn introduced the healthcare authority board’s top candidate to officials at the start of the meeting. Osborn announced his retirement in December but agreed to stay on until a replacement could be named.
The candidate said she was looking forward to working for Tunica County and being a part of the community.
Supervisor Henry Nickson asked if the candidate would move to Tunica in the future.
Shop aims to accessorize Tunica
When former casino beverage manager Carolyn Canada bought her daughters a gift box of accessories for Christmas, she never dreamed her eye for fashions would result in the creation of a thriving business for her family.
But today, Carolyn’s Creative Collection is just that.
“It’s our business but it’s in her name. It’s a family business,” explained Katrina Bond, Canada’s daughter and a partner in the business.
