Lafayette County

County storm victims begin to see grant money

Since an EF2 tornado ripped through Abbeville in May, more than $40,000 in funds have been approved for Lafayette County residents affected by the storm.
The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and Federal Emergency Management Agency have approved more than $3.5 million in grants to help eligible disaster survivors in Mississippi with housing and other serious disaster-related needs. Housing assistance included funds for temporary rental payments, home repairs, support toward replacing a destroyed home, or temporary housing units such as travel trailers or mobile homes. (June 9, 2010, Page 2)

          TV horror hearse or look-alike?

          Is it the original creepy hearse used in a popular Memphis TV show in the 1960s and 1970s or just a nearly identical look-alike? That’s the question hearse owner Joe Willis hasn’t been able to answer about his piece of morbid memorabilia. Retirees Joe and Merrill Willis own and operate the Yoknapatawpha Heritage Museum on Highway 30 in Lafayette County and a hearse in their possession for the past 20 years, has recently come under question as to whether it may be the authentic item used in Sivad’s “Fantastic Features” and at the Memphis Malco Theaters. (June 4, 2010, Page 1A)
