Tunica’s future lies with audience beyond gaming
At first reading, the Tunica County Destination Development Plan produced by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP of Tampa, FL offers a rather pessimistic view of the future of local tourism.
But the 84-page study also outlines opportunities to recruit new businesses and attractions and re-imagine the use and scope of existing facilities.
PricewaterhouseCoopers analysts presented the report in June, following a kick-off luncheon in November 2010 and a near-seven month process of interviews with “stakeholders,” that is, local public officials, casino/resort management, and those responsible for marketing the destination.
Citizens ask board for action on alleged public nuisance
A group of citizens formally presented a petition asking the Town of Tunica for “action.”
The petition, signed by about 30 residents neighboring 1770 Irwin Avenue calls for the closing of the “apartments adjoining Mike Nolan’s residence so that the citizens can once again enjoy a safe and secure place in which to live.”

Dogs: more than pets
One organization has seen first hand the impact that four legged friends can make–beyond being man’s best friend.
Charles Dwyer of Senatobia, who spoke on behalf of Retrieving Freedom, a kennel that assists The Tower of Hope, told of the miracles of service dogs at the Robinsonville Rotary Club on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
Dwyer said service dogs are classified in three ways. They can assist the injured, both military and non military. They can serve as companion dogs. They can be used as facility dogs. All of these uses require specialized training.
