Happy Halloween! I hope you have made adequate preparations for any ghouls or goblins that might appear at your door this evening! It finally feels like real football weather with a high today only expected to reach 59 degrees and a low tonight of 33, so plan accordingly.
There is a lot going on today and tonight…be sure to check the Local Events tab under Hometown Links above for information about upcoming events from groups and organizations around the area. Coahoma County Youth Outreach has a great night planned at the Expo Center with a dance, a haunted house, and “trunk-or-treating” in the parking lot…Ben Earnest and the CCYO board have hit the ground running since moving into their new digs, and it is great to see the community taking advantage of all the new activity. We have all heard the saying for years, “there’s nothing for kids to do around here,” but that is absolutely no longer the case!
Use Sounds Around Town as your reference when planning your weekend…there is all sorts of Halloween fun going on tonight for the adults, too. Tomorrow, of course, is another enormously important day of college football in Mississippi…be sure to check out Bubba Burnham’s Between the Goalposts – The Swami Sezedition this morning for a guide to the weekend’s SEC match-ups. Saturday will be a great day to get out downtown and enjoy the cooler weather…get some Christmas shopping done, then pop in to a local watering hole for dinner and the games. Ole Miss kicks off at 6:00 on ESPN, and State plays at 6:15 on ESPN2.
Tune in this morning to 105.7 WROX/AM 1450 at 8:40 forNewsweek in Review…I join WROX owner each week to discuss local events, politics, and sports. The representatives from the Rhythm & Blues Music Hall of Fame are in town, and we will give you the latest on Clarksdale’s efforts to land this project. So far, they have been very impressed with what they have seen, and they will be looking at properties this afternoon after meeting with city and county officials.
CSpire Customer Appreciation Day is today from 11:00 – 2:00…they will have food, games for kids, and giveaways of all sorts. Stop by and say hello to new store manager Darby Lamb and take advantage of some great deals.
Have a great weekend, Clarksdale and Coahoma County!
