Be sure to tune in to 105.7 WROX/AM 1450 this morning at 8:40 forNewsweek in Review…every Friday I join WROX owner Paul Wilson to discuss the events of the week. If you miss the broadcast, you can listen to it as an on-demand podcast from the WROX website later today. Today we will discuss my recent tour of the Clarksdale public schools, probably talk about the ridiculously cold weather from this week, and break down this weekend’s college football match-ups.
Don’t forget to send in those Thanksgiving recipes by Monday…if you have a family favorite that you would like to share, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add it to the post. Send pictures if you can!

A quick note about the Police Report…some of you may have noticed that the daily report issued by the Clarksdale Police Department has been evolving over the last couple of weeks. The report now includes even more detailed information about the daily activities of the department, and is intended to give the public a much more accurate picture of what the PD deals with every day. The timing of the release of the report fluctuates throughout the week, given the expanded nature of the information, and we will post each day’s report as soon as we receive it.
Good luck to the Rebels and Bulldogs this weekend…Ole Miss will face the toughest test of the two, facing an Arkansas squad that has been getting better every week and had a breakthrough win against LSU last weekend. The Bulldogs are heavy favorites against Vanderbilt, but they will have to keep from overlooking the Commodores, otherwise it might be a long day. And then…Egg Bowl week will be here…
Go see Keith Sykes and Delta Coast tonight at Hopson Commissary…Sykes is a former guitar player for Jimmy Buffet and wrote some of Buffet’s most memorable hits, and Delta Coast features Clarksdale’s own Taylor Craven.
