SO: Safety First
Seat belts are your best protection in accidents, and it is especially important that any child in your vehicle be protected by the safety restraint appropriate to their size and weight.
During the upcoming weeks, the Tunica County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting more random checkpoints for seat belt safety and also child restraints.
Deputies with the Tunica County Sheriff’s Office will be on hand to demonstrate how to properly install your car seat and secure your child safely.
Supervisors spar over claims, budget
When last Tuesday’s regular first of the month county board meeting ran long and the month’s claims hadn’t been approved, supervisors voted to recess until Thursday, September 4. And when that meeting got underway, the Board did something last week it hadn’t done in a awhile.
Board president James Dunn went over the August claims one by one, reading aloud the vendor and the amount of the claim. During the process, several items provoked discussion, and two supervisors questioned the process itself.
“Mr. Dunn, I need to know what you are trying to do,” District 5 supervisor McKinley Daley said at one point.

Computer shop getting new owners
William and Melissa Pierce will soon become owners of another mainframe business in town – Computek. The husband and wife duo already have their hands on hard drives through CPR Computer Repairs, LLC.
Computek was founded by its current owner, Wesley Bailey, Jr., in 1987. The company offers retail sales, repairs, and software to its many customers, Bailey said. Bailey is retiring from the business, he said.
The Pierce family will take over and serve all current clients of Computek, Melissa said.
“It’s pretty much going to be the same with the exception that we’re taking on new clients,” she said.
Bailey and the Pierce team have worked out of the same office at 1226 Edwards since March. The exact date of the complete transition is yet to be determined, Bailey said.
