Summer fun gets physical for youth, adults
Families looking for a little action for children have plenty of affordable options in Tunica this summer. From a new laser tag and bounce facility to low-cost golf sessions for beginners and the various programs offered by Tunica County Parks & Recreation, children can get physical and, perhaps, drop a few pounds while having fun.
The rain won’t stop Coretta Joiner’s business. The owner of Tunica Party N Bounce said her company will open its doors July 1 at 8702 Highway 61 North. The facility will feature laser tag, arcade games, bouncers, a party room, and snack bar with pizza, popcorn, nachos and cheese, hotdogs, smoked sausages, candy, drinks, chips, and pickles.

County expanding healthcare
Tunica County’s healthcare system will add satellite clinics in two locations in an effort to better reach citizens in rural areas.
Healthcare CEO Seandria Cobbins got the go-ahead for Project Outreach from supervisors last week to offer medical services at the Dundee and White Oak rec centers. Cobbins said there are many diabetics in Tunica County who are not following physicians’ plans of treatment and that extra education and monitoring is needed. Cobbins said the extra cost would be $3,000 to $4,000 per month, but that the clinics are running “well within the budget.” She added that she was applying for a National Institutes of Health grant that may pay for some of the extra costs.
