Museum Sports Day honors athletes
While the pageantry and celebrations of the 2012 London Olympic Games have the nation enthralled, take a break this Saturday, August 4, to come out to the Tunica Museum and enjoy Sports Day.
From 2 to 5 p.m., young athletes – whether football, basketball, or baseball players, cheerleaders or others – are invited to don jerseys and uniforms and turn out for the official opening of an exhibit of Janice Ward’s Olympic memorabilia that is on display now at the museum.
Willows reopens with bang
Tucked away in a dense pocket of vegetation across the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta levee, two mechanized traps sit fully loaded, waiting for the operator to launch a seemingly endless cache of clay disks into the sky.
“Pull,” commands a shooter, looking down the barrel of a Beretta 12-guage as a bright orange clay pigeon arches high in the air from behind the limb of a wild pecan. Reaching its apex, the clay shatters into dozens of pieces as a rattling “boom” pierces the air.
Main Street welcomes resale store shooting
Shoppers can now find a treasure trove of bargains on everything from wall art and clothing to antiques at Tunica’s newest downtown business.
According to Dee Little, co-owner of Cliff & Dee’s Resale Shop, shoppers can expect savings of up to 75 percent off retail on a number of items sold both on consignment and a traditional retail basis.
