Daily Tidbit for Tuesday: Celebrating with cake and candles today is Willena Malone…happy birthday, Willena!
County Supervisors meet today at 2:00 at the Courthouse
I hope everyone had a relaxing long weekend, even though many Clarksdale businesses were up and running all day yesterday. The Coahoma County Board of Supervisors did take the day off, and will have their first meeting of the month today at 2:00 at the Courthouse. Expect discussion of the recent lawsuit brought by four Coahoma County residents demanding that the Supervisory Districts be redrawn, as well as updated information about the annexation issue, and further talks about the county budget.
In case you missed it, the podcast of WROX’s “Newsweek in Review”is online, and the lawsuit was the topic for most of the segment. It will be interesting to hear what the Supervisor’s take on the matter is. As always, if you can’t make it to the meeting, you can watch it tonight on our Videos Page. In a related note, we have added a “Letters” feature to the Contact ClarksdaleInfo.com page, and welcome comments from the community about the lawsuit, or any other issue you feel like addressing. Input from the citizens is vital to our elected officials, so let them know what you think!
The latest edition of “Between the Goalposts”by Bubba Burnham is online on our Sports Page…check out Bubba’s expert analysis of Ole Miss and Mississippi State’s week one performances. The Lee Academy Colts improved to 2-0 with an impressive win over Strayhorn Friday, and the Clarksdale Wildcats beat Greenville-Weston 13-7 in Greenville. The Coahoma County Red Panthers fell to a tough Morton squad by a score of 33-8.
The Tiger offense accounted for 199 yards against a stingy Wildcat defense.
Last Thursday, the Coahoma Community College Tigers opened their 2014 season with a road loss to Pearl River Community College…you can read the game recap by clicking here or in the Featured Stories above.
The weather this week looks like our usual Delta September…highs in the 90′s with a good chance of afternoon pop-up showers every day. It is finally September, however, and hopefully cooler temperatures are around the corner! Before too much longer, combines will be hitting the fields, and soon after that, the cotton pickers, and another season will be in the books. Dove season opened in the North Zone of Mississippi yesterday, and deer season is almost upon us as well. We will be adding a new Outdoor/Hunting section to the website soon, brought to you by Major League Bowhunter and Taurus Firearms, so send in your photos, stories, tips and observations if you would like them included as the season unfolds.
For those of you that have asked about Keith, he is recovering well from his recent back surgery, and is expected to make a full recovery. He is having a small follow-up procedure today, and then will be moving to a rehab facility for a few weeks to get his strength back. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
