Forum: State poised for greatness

Dr. Rao Mulpuri, CEO of Soladigm, a Silicon Valley-based company opening its first manufacturing plant in Olive Branch, chose Mississippi for its proximity to Memphis’ transportation hub and the state’s business-friendly culture.

Future bright for Tunica Humane Society


Phase One of a four-phase project is now underway at 4500 Fox Island Rd. west of Tunica, the new home of the Horseshoe Humane Society shelter.
Local Humane Society officials and volunteers broke ground at the site last Wednesday and plan to occupy their new facility by August 1 this year.
The first phases of construction will ready the building’s 7500 square foot interior and two-acre fenced area. Exterior improvements will come later, executive director Sandy Williams said, as more funds are raised.
When complete, the shelter will house up to 100 dogs, some of which will likely be permanent residents, Williams said. One added amenity is an area for cats, which has not been possible at the present outdoor location. The building will also contain office and storage space, areas for quarantine, and space for veterinary procedures. One important component is a visiting room for potential adoptive families to get acquainted with the shelter dogs and cats.
