We heard that “almost” local celeb Jessie Duff had an article written about her in the Commercial Appeal. We went to read about her, but we do not have a subscription to the newspaper, so all we got was the headline and the photo. The headline read that Jessie was helping to design a rifle.
For those of you who may have forgotten who Jessie is, she taught a shooting class here to help raise some money to upgrade the Police Shooting Range in Clarksdale. She is also considered to be “one of the most recognizable female athletes in the U.S. for her ability to shoot a pistol with accuracy and speed,” according to the Memphis newspaper.

And now, let us take a moment for some serious bragging! We told you that the supplier of the Bloody Mary mix we sell at Delta Keepsakes was going to be on the T.V. show Chopped on Tuesday night. We also told you that the BBQ Princess and UBON’s had won many, many BBQ contests around the nation. Well, now she has gone and won on the T.V. as she walked away with top honors on Chopped! Don’t you just love it when you rub shoulders with a winner? We do!
Have a great day Clarksdale and Coahoma County.
