Daily Tidbit for Tuesday: It is Connie Perkins’ and Tim Raper’s Birthday today! Give a big ole hoot and a holler for both of them! Happy Birthday Tim and Connie!
Story Time takes place again today at the Carnegie Public Library at 10:00 a.m. thanks to the Clarksdale Junior Auxiliary. We think this will be the last one for the summer, but just to be sure call those well-read librarians at (662)624-4461.
Marshall Hopper will be live at the Hambone Art Gallery tonight belting out some blues for those of you who want to see some good entertainment. The footlights come up at 8:00 p.m.
There does not seem to be a lot going on around here this week, so if you have an event, send it to us so that we can act like we know something!
Here is something new for the calendar: There will be a pre-festival clean-up of Clarksdale this Saturday. Volunteers are needed for this effort and it could be a good thing for your Civic Organization to get involved with as we all want Clarksdale to look its best for the visitors.
The coordinator for this event is Marc Taylor (Yes, your friendly local neighborhood Recycling Manager) and you can reach her at (662)621-8136.
And speaking of needing volunteers, the Sunflower River Blues & Gospel Festival will take place one week later (i.e., August 7th, 8th, and 9th) and they need help getting this thing on the stages! If you would like to volunteer some of your time to help out, give them a call at the Chamber of Commerce at (662)627-7337 or call Nancy Foley of the SRBA at (662)444-8998.
In fact, the following will be a regular feature until the Festival is over: To view a complete line-up of all the acts performing with the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival this year, Click Here. You can cruise around the entire SRBG site from that page.
Now, as you may remember, we have been known to share some news articles with you that are, shall we say, off the beaten path? Here is an article from that well respected bastion of news (Saying that could make us throw up!), Yahoo News! Click Here to read about the 13 foot wide blob known as The Thing.
Okay, we know we said we were not going to start posting videos for you to watch, but this one is from those crazy ladies who started the “Things (sic) Southern Women Say!” If you take a minute or two to watch it, you will know why we are sharing it with you!

Have a great day Clarksdale and Coahoma County.
