Meet Your Elected Official: Nickson sees progressive future for Tunica County
Ten years from now, Henry Nickson Jr. envisions a different Tunica County.
“I see a diverse school system in the future,” Nickson said. “Ten years from now, we’ll have an abundance of jobs and homeowners. The casino industry will still be here and going well. The pipe plant will be bringing in revenue. Ten years from now, I see Wal-Mart and CVS but the small businesses, the mom and pop shops, will be here too. I see the county doing things to support the small businesses and more citizens here to support our businesses too. Of course, I see Henry Nickson still in office being a productive supervisor.”
Study recommends market diversification
A recent PricewaterhouseCoopers study reveals that Tunica’s tourism market is largely one dimensional and that it must diversify to survive and thrive.
According to the study, which was commissioned by the Tunica Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Tunica County Board of Supervisors and all nine of the county’s gaming establishments, the Tunica market is facing unprecedented challenges that could impact its ability to thrive if it doesn’t take steps to become more appealing to a wider, more diverse audience.
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.
