Let There Be Light
Holiday projects bring joy, fun for all
Jelly tops wrapped in yarn with a child’s photo in the middle. Pine cone reindeer. Wreaths made of ribbons or grapevine. Christmas time brings a spirit of creativity that children and adults can enjoy. All it takes is a bit of time, imagination and Christmas magic.
Jacque Buchanan of Tunica said a good project for pre-schoolers up to about second grade is a countdown to Christmas made up of Santa’s face and beard.
Ballot issue delays election certification
History was made in Tunica County on election day as African American candidates were elected to all five seats on the Board of Supervisors and other county offices.
Despite this stride, an election day snafu with ballots at one of the county’s largest voting precincts caused a delay in Tunica’s election certification and drew sharp criticism from an incumbent candidate who lost potential votes as a result of the error.
The issue stemmed from the names of the candidates for the District 25 House of Representatives race being left off the ballot while incorrectly featuring the name of a candidate from another district race.
Small changes, big impact
First impressions overall were good, when a team from Mississippi State University’s Stennis Institute assessed the town of Tunica recently, at the behest of Tunica Main Street.
Joe Fratesi reported the team’s findings last week, with a written report to follow by early December.
