Daycare for adults ready to serve locals
Providing care around the clock for senior citizens and adults with disabilities can be a demanding task for caregivers.
Sometimes, this means juggling schedules or finding someone to relieve the regular attendant to enable him or her to tend to personal business, or attend functions and other activities.
But, in the coming days, a new business will open near downtown that will provide some relief to caregivers needing a break from their adult dependents during business hours.
Help coming for uninsured in Tunica Co.
Uninsured and underinsured Tunica County residents will soon be able to save money on prescription drugs and customary dental services, thanks to the county’s membership in a national government association.
As part of its membership in the National Association of County Officials (NACO), Tunica County is able to enroll in the discount programs which, thanks to the size of NACO’s membership, will mean savings for eligible residents.
“It’s two programs we’re enrolling in – one is a discount prescription drug program and the other one is a discount dental program,” said Tunica County Supervisor Phillis Williams. “It’s for all the residents who don’t have insurance. It’s not something for those who already have insurance coverage.”
According to Williams, there is no cost for the county to participate in either program, which is made available to all counties holding an active membership in NACO.
Tunica Main Street: Festival just days away
For the 10th anniversary of Tunica Main Street’s Delta Day Festival on October 29, the focus is on family entertainment.
From the traditional children’s costume contest and tractor pull to the day’s music, Delta Day will be full of all day fun for all ages.
“One new thing this year is a NASA exhibit for children from the Stennis Space Center on the Coast,” Main Street director Lynn Ryals said. “We’re excited to have it here and also to welcome back familiar faces from years past.”
Downtown’s Rivergate Amphitheatre will host a pair of local favorites: rising country singer/songwriter KC Johns, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and blues legend-in-the-making James “Super Chikan” Johnson from 2-5 p.m.
