Cancer survivor felt God’s guiding hand
In February 1999, less than three years after having her first child, Tammy Goff received some news that changed her life forever.
Goff, just 28 years old at the time, learned that a lump in her breast was cancerous and that in order to save her life, she was forced to make some very difficult choices.
“I went to see my doctor after I discovered an unusual lump in my left breast and he wanted me to go in to have a mammogram,” explained Goff, now 42. “The mammogram indicated calcifications, which are a sign of cancer, and I went on from there to have a biopsy.”

Sally port main entrance needs a weatherstripping under the door (there is a blanket there instead which needs to be removed); there are bugs in the light fixtures and the vents need cleaning; there is ceiling tile falling in the kitchen; there are boxes stored in the visitation area; base boards need cleaning.
Study cites pros, cons of downtown
The John C. Stennis Institute of Government and Community Development last week released a final report of its First Impressions program that provides an in-depth assessment of Downtown Tunica, along with the community’s assets and opportunities.
The program’s findings, which were initially reported to town officials on November 17, were the product of multiple secret visits to Tunica by the Mississippi State Community Action Team between spring and mid-summer 2011.
“They come unannounced,” explained Tunica Main Street Manager Lynn Ryals, who contacted the Stennis Institute to request a First Impressions visit. “They come three different times to your community, and you don’t know when they’re there.”
According to the report, which Ryals received in printed form last week, members of the MSCAT team found Tunica’s downtown to be quaint and attractive, with its greatest assets being its parks, landscaping and attractive buildings.
