Daily Tidbit for Friday: Saturday is our favorite school teacher’s birthday. That’s right, it’s Henri Alyce Grantham’s big day as she will be 39 yet again! Happy birthday Henri! Hope you will have dozens more.
But we aren’t done there because Sunday is our favorite cutie’s birthday. Rosemary Dill will be 29 one more time! Happy birthday Rosemary!
The Clarksdale Fire Department’s Fire Report is being up dated this morning as is the Sports schedules for Coahoma County High/Jr High and Lee Academy. We have the County’s football schedules and for Lee we have the football schedule for High and Jr. High as well as the Girls’ Softball and Girls’ Soccer schedules. The Girls’ Soccer starts next Friday with a home game. And the Softball schedule starts the following Monday with a home game.
But, between now and the start of the football season we have two music Festivals to attend and have a blast at. The first is the 25thn Annual Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival on August 11-12 in downtown Clarksdale. We don’t know if the line-up has changed or not, but if you want to see the latest version we have received, Click Here. The Cathead Mini Blues Fest takes place in front of Cat Head on the Sunday following the Sunflower Festival.
The next Festival is also musical and features singers and dancers from around the world. We refer, of course, to the Yocona International Folk Festival. It will take place @ The Expo on Thursday August 16th. We will tell you more about that next week, but we feel it would be safe to say if you have never seen this Festival before, bring the kids, grandkids and grandparents!
The last we heard, there was a hearing scheduled this morning titled City of Clarksdale v Town of Lyon concerning the annexation proposal set forth by the City. It was scheduled for 9:30 a.m. @ City Hall. As far as we know, it is still scheduled.
Tomorrow is the Farmers' Market in Lyon. We need tomatoes, so we will be there!

Have a great weekend Clarksdale and Coahoma County.
