Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had such an impact on everyone nationwide that we continue to celebrate his birthday more than 50 years after his death.
King’s 90th birthday fell on Jan. 15 and was observed nationwide on Monday and we saw a great deal of activities throughout Clarksdale and Coahoma County.

Well, it’s official. The fifth annual SCI Wounded Veterans Deer Hunt was held the weekend of Dec. 7 – 9, 2018.

Two of our school districts – Clarksdale and Coahoma County – are both in need of full-time superintendents to move things forward.
