Daily Tidbit for Monday: Have you noticed that WROX has suddenly changed formats? Gary Ballinger, local DJ, was let go Friday and the station almost immediately went to a Country/Western Format broadcasting out of Cleveland. The station is still for sale if anyone wants to bring it back to Clarksdale broadcasting!

Daily Tidbit for Friday: Thanks to John Mayo for forwarding this info:

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and meteorologists with the National Weather Service are asking residents to prepare for storms on New Year’s Eve that are capable of producing severe thunderstorms with tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail and heavy rain. One or two strong tornadoes, with winds up to 120 mph, are possible. "There is some uncertainty in how severe this event will be so we encourage residents to pay close attention to the forecast Friday morning,” said Stephen Wilkinson, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the NWS in Jackson.

According to the t.v. weatherman, the worst is supposed to hit us right around midnight.

So, keep one eye on the sky as you welcome in the new year.

And, we wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
