County presents budget
Tunica County’s proposed budget of $69 million drew remarks from one citizen during a public hearing on Aug. 31.
Barbara Tuchel, speaking on behalf of the Tunicans for Transparency in Government Committee, asked the board how the transfer of the RiverPark from the county to Tourism Commission would work.
Board attorney Andy Dulaney said the Tourism Commission would receive funding from the county to operate the RiverPark. The county would still be responsible for some expenses, like utilities.
LONG Distance Information: Maughs find home among Methodist flock
When I talked to the new Methodist pastor, Larry Maugh, I told him I was sending him some questions by email and would he please answer them and return them to me so I could write a story about him for the Tunica Times. He sent back a bio he did for the Methodist church.
Hello to everyone in Tunica. I am Larry Maugh, the newly appointed pastor of the United Methodist Church. Celeste and I are moved into the parsonage though not settled in. Celeste assures me we will be settled by Christmas.
Leader fortifying RFHS for change
Although still referred to as “Coach,” Derrick Dace officially has a new title–Principal. During his sixteen-year career in the field of education (nine of which were spent in Tunica County), he has coached girls’ basketball, varsity football and taught high school math. Dace believes his previous positions have given him experience in team building and leadership that will serve him well in his role as principal.
Dace’s educational philosophy centers on the idea that all children are capable of learning, and that it is the duty of teachers and administrators to see that each individual succeeds. He also acknowledges that it is the responsibility of the school to equip students with the skills necessary to become viable prospects in today’s job market.
There are, admittedly, challenges to fulfilling his vision of how this philosophy is implemented. The biggest obstacle he would like to address during his tenure is the issue of trust between the school and the community.
