Daily Tidbit for Tuesday: Celebrating birthdays today are Pat Stoltman, Daniel Vassel, and John Ruskey…happy birthday, John, Daniel, and Pat!
Speaking of Mr. Ruskey, we received a notice from Quapaw Canoe Company that they are in the market for an administrative assistant…click here for details about applying. And don’t forget that the deadline for applications for the CRI Coordinator position is 10/24…click here for details about that one. Jobs are being created here in Clarksdale, and we aren’t having to resort to scalping Egg Bowl tickets to prop up the local economy just yet!
The latest edition of Between the Goalpostsby Bubba Burnham is online this morning on our Sports Page…the Mississippi State Bulldogs are the #1 ranked college football team in the country, but Bubba’s poll looks a little different from the AP!
Don’t forget that the last installment of Community Book Talks for the season is coming up Thursday at the Carnegie Public Library. This series has really grown into one of Clarksdale’s signature cultural offerings, and Thursday’s author is acclaimed Newberry medal winner Lois Lowry. The event is free and open to the public thanks to community sponsor Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center and a special fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. The event reception begins at 5 pm and includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres by Oxbow. The talk starts at 5:30 pm. The speaker will also be available to sign books and talk with attendees. Definitely bring your teenager who loves reading to this one.
If you are travelling through the north end of the county Friday, the public is invited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Delma Furniss Hospitality Station near the US 49/US 61 junction in Lula from 1-3 p. m. There will be entertainment and refreshments, so pull over for a cup of coffee and some music on your way to Helena or Memphis Friday afternoon, and meet some of the folks who are the first folks some folks see when they come to the Delta!
The 10/22/14 edition of The Clarksdale Press-Register will be on stands this afternoon, and there are several stories you are not going to want to miss. Reaction to the letter posted on Facebook by Coahoma County Sheriff Charles Jones has been all over the map, and we have done our best to make some sense of it. Also in the CPR will be details about a new museum that is considering making Clarksdale it’s home…and if we can get this, it will be huge.
