Baseball star goes for grand slam
When he’s not at work as a railroad conductor, Tunica native Cordell Dunn can usually be found at the indoor practice facilities of the DeSoto Vision baseball program in Olive Branch.
To say Dunn, a 1994 graduate of Rosa Fort High School, loves baseball is an understatement.
Redistricting plan ready for approval
The Town of Tunica’s Ward 4 is the biggest loser in the redistricting plan prepared by consultant Chris Watson of Oxford-based Bridge & Watson.
That ward was overpopulated by 63 people, Watson said at a hearing last week at town hall, while Ward 2 was the most underpopulated.
“The existing wards deviate by 45 percent,” Watson said. “The town has an obligation to redistrict if that deviation is 10 percent or more.”
Mayor: expenses controlled
On his first day as supervisor, District 4 Supervisor Henry Nickson Jr. encouraged Tunica County to take note of how the town of Tunica does things.
Mayor Chuck Cariker said he wanted to further explain the town’s travel policy and encourage questions if citizens had them.
“In the past, the town had two credit cards, one for the clerk and one for the mayor,” Cariker said. “Currently, we only have one credit card that remains locked in the vault. It is used for advance travel reservations and only issued to someone when they are traveling on official business.”
