March 17: The Week In Review

Chicot Memorial

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — It’s the weekend again and time for a look back at the week in news in the Delta. If you weren’t listening to Delta Radio every morning, here’s what you might have missed. A historic Mound Bayou house received a $284,000 grant. In Vicksburg, a local haunted hospital got a step closer to being demolished while the mayor was off to Washington again. Nursing home residents got a free trip to the convention center when a severe storm ripped the roof off their Greenville care facility. Clarksdale is getting new traffic lights, and a downtown weather station while the state auditor says Coahoma County owes the state money for unpaid fees and is going through computers from the tourism board looking for any signs of missing funds. In Leflore county an Itta Bena fish farm recalled 70,000 pounds of catfish, two more homicides were reported, and the city of Greenwood is still talking about taking over the local train depot. In Arkansas, Chicot and Desha counties were declared disaster areas by the Governor and an El Dorado Man out walking was struck and killed. A Monticello Charter school applicant withdrew its license application, a trailer thief arrested, and a bank robber sentenced to 40 years behind bars. All this, and much more, this week from Delta Radio and deltadailynews.com.
