Future bright for Tunica Humane Society
Phase One of a four-phase project is now underway at 4500 Fox Island Rd. west of Tunica, the new home of the Horseshoe Humane Society shelter.
Local Humane Society officials and volunteers broke ground at the site last Wednesday and plan to occupy their new facility by August 1 this year.
The first phases of construction will ready the building’s 7500 square foot interior and two-acre fenced area. Exterior improvements will come later, executive director Sandy Williams said, as more funds are raised.
When complete, the shelter will house up to 100 dogs, some of which will likely be permanent residents, Williams said. One added amenity is an area for cats, which has not been possible at the present outdoor location. The building will also contain office and storage space, areas for quarantine, and space for veterinary procedures. One important component is a visiting room for potential adoptive families to get acquainted with the shelter dogs and cats.
SO investigating robbery, prostitution ring
Four people have been arrested for prostitution following an incident at a local hotel on March 26.
Around 6 p.m., the Tunica County Sheriff’s Department received a call reporting a robbery at America’s Best Value Inn in Tunica Resorts. Deputies interviewed a male complainant, who said two men had forced him to give them an undisclosed amount of cash and other items.
Hambrick resident seeks help
Hambrick Subdivision resident Toni Price was clearly fed up when she complained to county supervisors on March 15 about what she described as a “mess” in her neighborhood.
Price said she had reported the problem of junk cars on her street and in a neighbor’s yard for three or four years, but that nothing had been done about the situation.
“It’s unfair that I have to live under this mess,” Price said.
O Happy Day!
