Daily Tidbit for Thursday: Dana Andrews, Adrian Kosky, Ashley McKinney-Ford, Debbie Miller and Scott Thomas are making with the Birthday celebrations today! Happy Birthday Scott, Debbie, Ashley, Adrian and Dana! Hope both you and your cake are thawed out by dinner time!
And, as if it was not cold enough outside, we just had to share this photo with you. During last week’s snowfall, local Snowflake (i.e., in the Christmas Parade!) Phil Cauthen made this American flag out of the snow. Good use of your spare time Phil!
Today’s known cancellations: Schools and the courthouse are closed. St. Paul’s Lenten Luncheon will not meet, and the Hoss Bennett High School Football Awards Banquet are postponed. Also, the free beer tasting at Hopson Commissary has been postponed until next Thursday. We will let you know the make up date for the Hoss Bennett Awards.
However, the last we heard, the Spring Potluck Dinner at the Big Spring building (1st United Methodist Church Education building), at 405 East Second Street is still on the agenda.
Friday, North Delta Championship Wrestling returns to the Clarksdale City Auditorium. The doors open at 6:00 p.m. and bell time is set for 7:00 p.m. Here is the link to their Facebook page, Click Here.
Saturday morning from 9:00 until 11:00 a.m., there will be a special program at the Coahoma County Expo Center entitled Police Encounter. The purpose of this program is to teach young people, and hopefully some old timers, how to act when faced with law enforcement personnel. Maybe some folks can walk away from this program with some more respect for our men and women in blue! We are going to assume that there is no admission, and Sheriff Charles Jones will be the speaker.
The Sparkling Jewels Dance Team will be hosting a dance competition at Coahoma Community College. Look under the Local Events tab in the upper menu for their flyer.
Delta Blues Museum Director Shelley Ritter sent us a press release about a special event happening this weekend. This Saturday at 3:00 p.m., the Delta Blues Museum will host CeDell Davis. He will be backed by guest artists Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees, R.E.M.), Delta Blues Museum Ambassador Jimbo Mathus, and Zakk and Greg Binns. This is a special appearance in celebration of Davis’ latest album release, “Last Man Standing.” For more info call the Delta Blues Museum at (662)627-6820.
