THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — Another week of news is now “History” in the Delta. If you weren’t listening to Delta Radio every morning to start your day, here’s what you might have missed. Shootings this week left two injured and four in jail in Greenwood, 1 man in critical condition in Vicksburg, and another dead in Greenville. In Vicksburg, one river barge sunk after more than 30 hit and closed the old Mississippi River bridge. A missing man’s body was found in a bayou near Shaw. In Cleveland, the law is going to the dogs with three new city ordinances. Traffic accidents claimed the lives of a Benton woman in Yazoo County when her car collided with a tractor, and a DSU Professor when the car she and her husband were riding in was hit head-on near Leland. Delta State turned over a historic mansion to a Clarksdale college, while a Clarksdale nurse-practitioner was arrested in a drug sting. The Medgar Evers home in Jackson got a new plaque as supporters tried to turn the site into a National Monument. and in Arkansas, Monticello revealed three Monticello city employees were injured in an underground vault cave-in. All this and much more this week from Delta Radio, and deltadailynews.com.
