In case you didn’t look at yesterday’s Police Reports, two teenagers attempted to rob a woman of her cell phone which resulted in two very quick arrests by the Clarksdale Police Department. Good job C.P.D.! Keep up the good work. Click Here to read the Police Reports.
One of the new pages on CI.com is Local Events. This is different from the old Events Calendar because it elaborates more on the subject at hand. It is in the drop-down menu of Hometown Links in the upper menu. Or you can just Click Here.
We walked out of Delta Keepsakes for a breath of fresh air yesterday and couldn’t help but see this scene as a photo op. That’s Molly Franks tying bows while Watermelon Slim plays his slide guitar on Yazoo Avenue. The young fellow taking the other photograph is a visitor from California.
This has been a busy week at ClarksdaleInfo.com. We are growing rapidly, and I wanted to take a minute and thank our sponsors and supporters for hanging in there with us while we changed to the new format and servers.
This website is, ultimately, a community endeavor. The people whose ads you see here, and the people organizing the events we publicize believe in Clarksdale and Coahoma County. We want to be a forum about the things that go on in our hometown, and we can only do that with your continued input. If your child’s class is having a car wash, let us know. If your organization receives a grant, send us a press release. If you take a cute picture, we’d love to see that, too. We are all about getting the word out, and we want to help. If you have not “liked” our Facebook page yet, please do so. Links to all articles and videos are posted there as soon as they are published to our website.
Shop local, take a class, go to a festival…take advantage of living somewhere that people around the world sometimes value more than we do. And by all means take advantage of this crazy weather we are having this week! We may be in for some rain along the way, but the temperatures are going to remain mild, and the mosquitos are flying slower, at least, so they are easier to swat. The boiling humidity will return soon enough, so get outside while you can!
