Board mum on matters

The Board of Supervisors kept their thoughts close to the vest during the first board meeting in 2011, offering few remarks at their session on Jan. 4.
Department head reports from the Arena director and heads of the water management agency, housing department and planning commission were included in supervisors’ packets. Sheriff K.C. Hamp, Parks and Recreation Director Billy Willis and Justice Court clerk Jennifer Williams did offer brief remarks.
Hamp reported just over $7,000 will be reimbursed to the county for the month of December. He has hired a new jailer and a deputy. He asked that he and three employees be allowed to attend a CrimeStoppers Conference in Biloxi Jan. 19-21. The board approved his travel request.

Aldermen set public hearing for well

The face of the game for the Town of Tunica’s ongoing water issues changed on Tuesday, Jan. 4, when the board received notice that some surprise money may be headed their way.
Mayor Chuck Cariker and engineer Ed Davis told the board that the town has been included on a list of municipalities eligible for principal forgiveness. In essence, just over $536,330 will be awarded to the town and will not have to be paid back, Davis explained. The funds will cover expenses associated with construction of a well. The town will get the rest of the money needed through the State Revolving Fund program. A total of $975,145 was requested.

For writer, 2010 was a year of travel, triumph

It’s that time again - the week after Christmas when all the gifts have been opened and all of the leftovers have been eaten. And somewhere between the visit from Santa Claus and the New Year’s Eve fireworks, I always seem to get a bit nostalgic as I look back and take stock of all the events that have unfolded over the past twelve months. It seems that for me, 2010 has been a year of extremes.
When things were good, they were wonderful. And when they were bad, they were nightmarish. Think Chilean miners and Gulf oil spill. Think Wikileaks, Tiger Woods, mid term elections, and home foreclosures. Think Haitian earthquake and the Winter Olympics. And while all of these events leave their imprint on the collective consciousness of our culture, it is surely the things that happen right here in our own backyard that shape our lives in the indelible way that leaves us changed, for better or worse.
